Because they use the corner of the device where the camera basically has the whole thickness of the device to itself.
Apple does the same thing. Yet with a smaller sensor has larger bumps and barely a hair thinner. So try again apple fan

So we get a better image quality, but you guessed it, the camera module will get bigger.
So now think about how Apple changes the design of their phones, every two years right? So the 6s shall look like the 6 and design is very important for Apple. Additionally, because of the 3D touch, the battery already had to get smaller so we can imagine there is really no space in the device left at all and the camera humb is already annoying.
So do your 1+1 and see what result you got and then you know why they kept the same 1/3 sensor size

Is this s7 camera vs unknown Chinese brand phone camera or what ?? The differences is .... (you name it)

There's also RAW option for the S7 if you worry about the highlights
This is how Apple works, 'Apple phones used to have large pixels too, the iPhone 5s had 1.5µm pixels on its 8MP sensor, but with the new 12MP sensor in the iPhone 6s dropped the size to 1.22pm.
Why did Apple not use the new 12mp sensor with larger pixels 1.5pm in the iPhone 6s?
It is Apple flagship and it is very expensive!
Because Apple will use the same 12mp sensor in the iPhone 7 with the larger pixels at 1.5pm and hopefully a wider aperture at least f/2.0 because iPhone is really behind the competition with that aperture f/2.2

But the daylight photos just don't strike me as being any better than that of the S6. In fact the S6, for me, produces better photos in daylight.
The S7 is great for low light due to the large aperture.. But in broad daylight there will be too much light causing highlights to be clipped.. That is why Nokia included ND filter in N8 and 808..
Only part where the iPhone did better was dynamic range. But the Galaxy did better on all fronts (including HDR)
So bummed. I replaced my Note 5 with the S7Edge today.
The few shots I have taken of high contrast areas appear worse than those taken by the Note on a 30" monitor. I imagine on a 70" TV it will look much worse.
The dynamic range of the S7 is almost as bad as it was on the S5. I wish I had waited.
It's incredible that some people posting here do not see the significant clipping in bright areas by the S7. They must never look at photos on large screens.
You can post-process the iPhone's daylight photos to look like those of Samsung, but there is no coming back from the Samsung processing, the information is lost forever.
Samsung did a great job for low light, but a poor job for daylight image processing.

LG and Microsoft are hardly giants when it comes to market share.... But the do have better cameras than the iPhone.
phone A compare to B have brighter and more detail
calour tone depend on people taste
so A win
Really what was gsmarena expecting, when the 6s can't hold it's ground against the s6, try a better comparison with the likes of v10 or lumia 950 or z5, cus we already know that the iPhone is not the best camera out there, not even in the top 5
Just downloaded and checked the data on some of those photos and the data shows that they were extremely manipulated and effects were added, why is that?
Anonymous, 21 Mar 2016These two can be compared for their price only, if we compare value for money Samsung is Ages ... moreAgreed. People need to realize what kind of a super tech powerhouse samsung really is. Innovation doesn't come cheap or easily.
Anonymous, 21 Mar 2016The Samsung phones you mentioned are old and have early versions of Android. All Android phone... moreAlpha is not old at all. It has one year... WTF? Should I change the phone yearly? It's insane to pay 700 usd yearly for a...phone .

This is all about convincing iphone owners not to jump ship. Most of the comments on here amount to either ooh, ooh the iphones the best or, ooh they are both the same.The comment are from iphone staff or Pr team. Don't know who's paying for this Pr coup (not.) but the fact that the iphone is even being mentioned in the same camera article is a win and the fact its being manipulated away from Dxo's stated facts means this farce may serve the intensions of its fabricators. Sham.
