GX85 vs Samsung S7 Edge dynamic range

This is not a scientific test, just a bit of fun, so don’t read too much into it. In a challenging backlit situation, my 3-year-old Samsung phone does a fair bit better than the GX85 when roughly the same amount of effort is put in. Both were shot in raw and edited very briedfly on the respected devices (boosted shadows, dropped highlights).

Perhaps I could get more detail out of the GX85’s raw file if I used DXO or some other software. And maybe if i shot a 3-shot HDR with the GX85 and combined the 3 files on the computer it would be considerably better. But that would require much more effort.
