Peiasdf: First batch and Chinese version always comes with Japanese parts and later batches is luck of the draw. You can tell the Japanese parts are higher quality because Note 7 only use SONY sensor and when the battery started exploding, Samsung suspects bad battery only affected Korean made cells and not TDK cells in Chinese models.

Yeah... This isn't true. I got my S7 on release and many people in the US got the an S7 with a Samsung sensor on release. You can check XDA for screen shots if you'd like.

mailman88: According to Cnet, ZDNet and Digital Trends....both sensors on the S8 will create blurry images in low light.

Well the S7 had the best cell phone camera ever released until the Google pixel. I'm sure this will be no different. There is an NDA right now on S8 reviews. So they are likely just guessing... I can guarantee it'll likely be the best camera for the first half of the year until the new pixel is released.

cosinaphile: it matters little as both sensors are of a size that precludes use for quality photography , even if a a billion selfie aficionados didn't get the memo

a 1 1.7 sized sensor like the lx3 lx5 tl500 ex1 gx200 grlll is the minimum that is worth shooting with

Actually on a sunny day. My S7 is actually better in raw vs my Olympus xz1 in raw. In every aspect. Noise, sharpness and DR.

HimeNoHogosha: Is there any information about the distribution of the different sensors? By region? SKU?

It's random, it's been this way since the S5. It doesnt matter which region. You don't know until you download the app needed to find out which one you have. After that, you now know... I guess... It doesn't really matter. I've had 3 S7's one with a Sony and 2 with the Samsung sensors. I haven't noticed any difference.

zubs: i have the S7 edge in UK with the Sony sensor. There is some differences in image quality compared to the isocell sensor. Although I'm not an Apple fan, at least the hardware is the same spec across all regions,Samsung choose different processors and sensors for the same model in various regions, no consistency. They should learn from their battery debacle. Also the Sony sensor supports video stabilisation whilst the isocell doesn't

Also all sensors supported everything they were supposed to. If one couldn't do video stabilization, the other was allowed to either. I've had 3 S7's my first had a Sony sensor, the other 2 had Samsung sensors. The features did not change. They all had the same features. The difference in image quality is something I have yet to notice.

Lol some of what you said is incorrect. The sensor designs are essentially the same. The white balance may be a little different, high iso performance may be a little different(Samsung sensor in the S6 was a little better vs Sony in high iso by like 1/16 of a stop). Literally not much of a difference.

Glen Barrington: Has Samsung ever said WHY they are doing this? I guess I don't really care so long as *I* don't get shorted in terms of the quality of experience, but I seems like an odd thing to do.

Supply, Sony cannot produce enough sensors. So Samsung uses Sonys design and produces the sensors them selves. This has been happening since the S5 I believe. It's nothing new.

CaPi: Wasn't that the case for the previous version already? You might want to mention that.
I haven't heard of any complaints about the previous versions cameras btw.

There where minor differences. But basically the same.

citrate: Where is the reported 1000fps super slow-mo video recording mode?
Is IMX333 the same sensor in Sony Xperia XZ Premium?

That sensor is the IMX400

cheetah43: What distinguishes the phone from Note? The Pen. What does make the Pen function? Software. Why don't they have the Pen as an accessory? One will simply not have a housing 'a la Note' for it [much better from design consideration]. You lose the Pen, you get another one.

They have a walcom chip in the phone also the screen has an extra layer on it. It's not just a stylus. There's hardware in there to make it the best on the market.

They used a new sensor in the S8 vs the S7. IMX333 in the S8 and IMX260 in the S7.

jim seekers: At the moment I have a s3 and doing research on the s8, I have decided to buy a s7 in August,
I am waiting till August as the price of the s7 should come down more.
not worth buying the s8 as it doesn't do 4K@60fps.
Does anyone know if the s7 has control over Contrast , Saturation , white balance and Kelvin shift on video mode.

There isn't a camera sensor currently capable of doing 60fps in 1/2.3 or smaller size. The processors are capable of handling it. There just isn't a sensor that is able to do it.

Combatmedic870: Well first we need a smart phone camera sensor capable of 4k @120fps.

I wasnt talking about watching anything. I said camera sensor.

Combatmedic870: This is a very well speced phone. The newest processor, BT5.0 , great screen and I'm sure a greats camera.

Btw everyone keeps looking at the photos posted taken with the XZs not the premium, the XZs does NOT include...
The newest EIS technology, and new bionz processor that is included in the XZ premium.

The XZs is an upgraded XZ.
