    At first glance like the first touch, difficult to differentiate the Galaxy S7 of his predecessor, the Galaxy S6.  After a few days in our hands, we have the impression that Galaxy S and 2016 seems to excel on all the points. It was good for the Galaxy S6 because this year, the Galaxy S appears more consensual. For the first time on its range of smartphone, Samsung has decided to reduce the definition of its dorsal sensor. 16 megapixels on the S6, S7 increases to 12 megapixels. The sensor size is identical on both machines (1 / 2.6 inch), the photosites are larger (1.4 micron against 1.12 for S6). Samsung, the idea is thus to improve the capture in low light situation. The S7 sensor, a Sony IMX260 is also an evolution of the one used on the S6, which was having IMX240.

    Another development, opening passing of f / 1.9 on the S6 to f / 1.7 on the S7, again to catch more light. Like its predecessor, the S7 adopts optical stabilization. Finally the focal length, the S7 has a wide angle of 26mm against 28mm on the Galaxy S6.

    Opposite, Apple followed a reverse logic, increase the definition (8 to 12 MP) on the same sensor size, 1/3 of an inch. Result, the photosites are smaller and go 1.5 on the iPhone 6 to 1.22 micron on the iPhone 6s. Sensor photosites and smaller than Samsung for an identical resolution 12 megapixels so.
    Still no optical stabilization on the 6S (reserved for Plus version) and less light aperture (f / 2.2), on paper, the gap is widening between Apple and Samsung. Finally, note that the iPhone 6s adopt a wide-angle 29 mm equivalent.

    The shots captured automatically and in 4: 3 with our machines have enjoyed no special settings.
    The Galaxy S7 sensor like the iPhone 6s are natively in 4: 3 with a max resolution of 12 megapixels. The Galaxy S6 natively integrates a format 16: 9 sensor with a maximum resolution of 16 megapixels in 4: 3 setting increases to 12 megapixels. Thus, all the photos in this comparison have the same definition set at 12 MP.

    In fairly ideal exposure conditions, the court of our new Paris premises bathed in sunshine, the three smartphones will logically come out with honors. In detail, the scene is better exposed on the s7 (gray area under the porch and stairs) pictures taken with the iPhone shifted toward yellow those caught with the Galaxy to blue, overall iPhone 6s provides better accuracy in color reproduction (see the gray cobblestones). When it comes to crop, there is a somewhat similar sound management, the battle will not win in these conditions for any type of camera.

    The game is changing with conditions less lenient here as interior curtains closed, in the dark. The Galaxy S7 dropped its competitors of the day, the scene is more exposed, the brighter picture, more just white balance and more accurate colors. The comparison is particularly painful for the iPhone 6S coming out of dark photos, featureless and well noisy.

    The Galaxy S6 is not doing so badly this year, we still note a balance of mismanaged white noise and color that pulls yellow. Victory of the Galaxy S7 and photosites combo larger and wide opening.

    Very good without flash, the Galaxy S7 does not demerit with. LED offers better distribution and homogeneity of light making the scene more depth, vases seem less crushed. The flash of the iPhone 6s is less homogeneous, scorched the center of the stage and the vessels are flat. The Galaxy S6 is doing better in the field of light scattering, the scene is less cramee. Victory of the Galaxy S7 and its flash to the homogeneous light.

    Still not clear conditions for our NPC, under our canopy, against the light this time. The three machines deliver good results, a good level in the details, 6s white balance pulls slightly to yellow. Outside the focal length (29mm for the iPhone, 28 for S6, S7 26) is breaking even.

    On this last year, the S6 is doing best, probably due to a weaker Wide. In Samsung we note little difference, the S7 seems still better white balance, face it, the iPhone is far from ridiculous. To mitigate these results, rather good on our three machines, we have provided catches in relatively favorable conditions in full sun.

    One point is clear, the gap between a Galaxy S6 and S7 Galaxy is not so obvious in most cases ... except in low light where the Galaxy S7 is actually very impressive. The flash will be clearly less strain on the S7 and it should be, it provides a more uniform distribution of light.

    When conditions are right, the iPhone 6s always produces good shots. However, already behind by the Galaxy S6, the gap widens a bit more with the Galaxy S7 and our personal iPhone 6s appears completely dropped in certain situations (low light, use the flash). We bet that Apple will fix the shooting in September with an iPhone 7 break.
