Note8 user, 02 Apr 2018So, in the conclusion it states that Xperia XZ2 is better than Galagxy S9 in low-light photogr... moreI think you need to go back and read it properly. Sony is better when a tripod is used, handheld galaxy S9 wins.
A few people said overall Sony wins... I’m I reading the same article as them? Or fanboys always chose their brand?
Here are the results from reading the article.
-Daylight pics is a draw,
-Night shots the galaxy wins in terms of brightness, noise reduction, speed to take the pic and hand held shots. Sony can win with a tripod, but seriously how many people bring a tripod with them?
-Portraits (bokeh) Sony wins
-selfie Samsung wins
-Super slow mo, Samsung wins
-4K video and HDR vids (Sony), 1080p video (Samsung)
And those results are from the article, not from me.
Judging by the samples here, it looks like the S9 is slightly ahead. Which means the S9+, aka "the one with the good battery life", is likely to be ahead of the Sony.
However, we can't (or shouldn't) really judge until we actually get our own hands on them.
So its a little puzzling to read some of the comments here.
There's only one (very important) conclusion to draw from this comparison: Sony has finally started to fix their camera drivers!
Cassy O, 02 Apr 2018Lol, Sony's manual mode is a joke, the S9 can beat easily the XZ2 with pro mode, and the HDR m... moreBoth have same stuff.
Turn on HDR, ISO, shutter speed, WB and manual focus.
HDR goes auto on sony even for front camera, which never works properly on galaxy. Alwaus overexposed background.
Sony has AR, many filters. You can even use both cameras same time since Z1.
Xperia wont stopping recording 4K after 5 minutes. LOL.
5 minutes , what a joke... Should allow 3h of 4K.
Quality is lower and also time limited.
MdN8, 02 Apr 2018It's more expensive to make, and more complicated, it means more mechanical parts, and Sony ha... moreAre you kidding? Xperias had metal and glass in 2013, metal was one piece. They are the ones that made it cool again, while others were saying plastic is better and one more thing to break etc. 2016 was a bad year for materials. In the days of SE, everyone used plastic. My SE phone is still going strong which is 12 years old.
Get pics from both and print them all..
You' ll be shocked how bad low resolution is.
Same for editing.
Lol, Sony's manual mode is a joke, the S9 can beat easily the XZ2 with pro mode, and the HDR mode on the XZ2 is shameful.
Kudos to Samsung's multi frame noise reduction.
AnonD-743777, 02 Apr 2018Sony WIN! XZ2 just beat s9Be sure to carry a tripod around with you if you have the XZ2...otherwise....you know....
Anonymous, 02 Apr 2018What have Sony got against OIS?Because OIS is bad to capture moving objects without blur.
It cant act that fast.
Videos have jello effect too.
And Sony did not even bring the flagship yet.
XZ2 Premium ( or however they call it) was made to crush any other device..
I love Xperia xz2. Look at last picture of the last page of these two phones.i think Xperia xz2 much beautiful then s9
Anonymous, 02 Apr 2018What have Sony got against OIS?It's more expensive to make, and more complicated, it means more mechanical parts, and Sony has always been using cheap squeaky materials for their products - from the Sony Ericsson days until lately when they finally switched to metal and glass (but who knows what's inside). And Sony users don't care, some even want to disable it for some mythical reason, some even want to carry tripods. :-D
The S9 is clearly the winner. Of course some blind Sony fans will deny it even with the evidence in front of their eyes. Nothing new. The S9 has better stabilization, less noise, better in low light, better camera software, and more or less tied in the rest.
Shanti Dope, 02 Apr 2018Their EIS called SteadyShot is nearly as good as OIS for photos, and beats OIS for videos. Th... moreYes...this. OIS cannot be disabled when not needed...why can't people get this lol....plus OIS is too overated.
So, in the conclusion it states that Xperia XZ2 is better than Galagxy S9 in low-light photography. Nice.

They just need OIS, but they can't put it right now as it cannot be disabled physically when it's not needed, especially for videos.
