Anonymous, 10 Mar 2018Where did you get 1/15s from? Of course it is possible to get sharp images at 1/8s but you can... moreThe 1/8s was for Sony. Not Samsung.
XZ2 has 25mm.
S9 has 26mm.
Hard to take fake bokeh with wide lens.
But Sony's Background Defocus requires the person to be half yard or less from camera.

Of course it is possible to get sharp images at 1/8s but you can't do it consistently. The focal length of the phone is around 28 mm (35 mm equivalent), and to get sharp images the shutter speed must be faster than 1/28 s (1/focal length, google for this rule if you are familiar with it). You won't want to use 1/8 s shutter speed for portrait shots. It's too slow for your hand and the subject.

Good light scene, choose Spongebob..
Even U11 Life and S7 outperform iphone X. I knew it was just cheap marketing..
Small bezel = tiny sensor = shitty selfie / bad quality video calls
Samsung phone looks good. That's the only thing. Samsung seems very incompetent on software dept. They cannot give timely update or even security patch. This is huge negative. I switched from iPhone 6s to note 8. Note 8 is having Dec security patch and android 7. It's not acceptable for a 1000$ phone. Looking forward for pixel 3 or next version of iphone. Not to mention Samsung makes cheap duplicate apps like it's own app store. In stead of making such duplicate apps they should consider developing current android. And give timely update.

My iPad Air 2 from 2014 with the Apple A8X chip can play graphics intensive games like Rules of Survival in extremely maximum settings (High FPS Mode on and Excellent Graphics). In contrast, my friend who has the iPhone 6s of 2015 with Apple A9 chip, is slower to load the game, given our devices are connected to the same network; my hotspot data.
