DroidBoye, 05 Jan 2020You know what you're talking about? That's NOT Bokeh.Bokeh is a term derived from Japanese that indicates blur produced in the out of focus area within the frame, so that IS bokeh.
Rokka, 05 Jan 2020This comparison is weird coz Samsung will adopt 108MP camera for s11/s20Rumor says that one will be a different sensor.
Whalter, 05 Jan 2020Can GSMArena just use Gcam for the comparison? The stock camera app is WAAAAY too limiting...No layman/laywomen uses GCam. GCam is not a rite of passage to every smartphone owners. It's not mandatory too. Plus there isn't a definitive version as there are >4 creators/programmers of GCam so they don't know who to pick.
Normal people unlike you and me don't care about GCam so leave it.

As for all machine learning applications more data gives better results. Quad Bayer generates much more data in a single shot and can be much more versatile than traditional sensors. Single shot hdr is just a beginning of that.
DantE O2, 04 Jan 2020note 10+ costs twice as much as mi note 10 , do you really need a comparison between the two?True. We don't really need it. But other thing is that Galaxy phones loose their value faster than newer, more powerful and attractive phones are popping up :). Overall Note10+ is much better device anyway.
It is quite apparent that xiaomis lens is very soft in the edges and corners. If they had better lens things would have been a lot better.
I like the foliage rendering of the xiaomi though. It doesn't have the overprocessed look found in current hdr computational photography phones, instead it resembles the initial stages of huawei leica partnership. Very pleasant

Thanks for this test it is very insightful of what may be coming with the next models. I know this was just comparing the main cameras but I would assume if you were needing extra DOF in an image with the Xiaomi you could use the wider angle camera which I think in the review suggested was very decent. There would also be nothing stopping Xiaomi or Samsung from creating a focus stacking mode too if needed.
It would have been interesting to see what a processed raw image may have looked like side by side. Also with the lowlight images if you had exposed for the highlights you probably might have fixed the exposure issues?
PeterThePanda, 05 Jan 2020Real Bokeh (not the artificial and fake simulated one used in portrait effects by smartphones ... moreThe larger sensor also create more "bokeh" as you need longer focal length to have the same POV as a smaller sensor. Aperture is not the only factor.
sohail shafayat, 04 Jan 2020It's possible, IMX400 is 19MP & 1.22 micron, a little more effort is quite possible. Manuf... moreAgree. Plus the 108mp in this sensor amhas around 0.8Mm size. With the pixel binning system, each pix size in the 27mp mode will have the size kf 1.6Mm. So i guess the reason why pmcamera manufacturers haven't make the 24mp with 1.4+ Mm pixel size is because of marketing
DantE O2, 04 Jan 2020note 10+ costs twice as much as mi note 10 , do you really need a comparison between the two?Not if you wait a few months. Bought a Galaxy Note10+ unlocked, no contract, no trade in on Cyber Monday from Microsoft for $699.
Thanks for the article. I was wondering how they stacked up. Bought a Galaxy Note10+ unlocked, no contract, no trade in on Cyber Monday from Microsoft for $699. So that's a good price. But I will eventually be interested in acquiring one with a larger sensor. But I'll probably wait until the next models, the S20 Ultra and Note20 Ultra come down in price.
Anonymous, 05 Jan 2020The bokeh on the Mi Note 10 is the best. All natural without portrait mode. Let's not compare... moreReal Bokeh (not the artificial and fake simulated one used in portrait effects by smartphones through software) is dependent on the aperture of the lens (a wider aperture is what causes bokeh), not how enormous the number of megapixels are.
