Samsung Galaxy S6 / S6 Edge camera review

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were dispatched at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona prior this year and take after on a year ago's Galaxy S5. Aside from the bended screen edges of the S6 Edge, the models accompany indistinguishable particulars, including the camera module. We utilized a S6 Edge for this test however because of the indistinguishable camera determinations results are substantial for both the S6 and S6 Edge models. 

With a 16MP BSI CMOS sensor, quicker F1.9 lens and the expansion of an optical picture adjustment framework the Galaxy S6 Edge camera is, in any event on paper, a reasonable change on the effectively extremely well performing module in the S5. Moreover the camera is presently dependably in stand-by mode which implies it can be dispatched rapidly by double tapping the home catch. 

Samsung has additionally enhanced the front camera, which now offers a 5MP determination and 43% bigger pixels than its proportional on the Galaxy S5. It highlights ongoing HDR and multi-outline low light modes. Contrasted with past era Galaxy S telephones, the whole client interface has been improved with less menus and pre-introduced applications. The camera application has been incorporated into the improvement procedure and accompanies a thinned down interface with most crucial settings specifically available from the primary screen. A Pro mode is likewise offered with a scope of manual controls including ISO, presentation pay and white equalization. Control over shade pace is accessible through outsider applications however the S6 does not as of now backing DNG Raw catch as indicated in the most recent Android camera API. 

With its amazing spec sheet, premium materials and strong look and feel the Galaxy S6 Edge falls solidly into the top of the line section of the cell phone market. Perused our far reaching survey to discover how it executes as a camera.

The Galaxy S6 outline has changed definitely from past gadget eras. Both S6 models are just 6.8mm thin and accompany double tone Gorilla Glass 4 at the back that progressions its shading relying upon the point light is reflected at. The casing is produced using metal that, as indicated by Samsung, is half more grounded than the material utilized as a part of different cell phones and for sure, in spite of the fact that this is to a degree subjective, the S6 Edge looks much more pleasant and feels a great deal more strong than past top of the line Samsungs. One downside is that, of course, the glass back is a great deal more inclined to unique finger impression spreading than a plastic variation. 

The 5.1-inch Quad-HD AMOLED showcase is splendid, energetic and clear, incredible for survey and surrounding pictures alike. As normal perceivability is decreased in brilliant conditions yet the Samsung screen is superior to anything numerous in this appreciation. The Galaxy S6 Edge does not have the first Note Edge's devoted programming that involves the showcase edge at all times however permits you to pull up a contact supervisor and missed calls screen from the edges with a swipe, making it even more a configuration instead of utilitarian component. 

The control format is in accordance with past Samsung eras. The force catch is on the right edge while the volume rockers can be found on the left. In regular Samsung design a physical home catch decorates the bezel underneath the screen. Not at all like the S5, on the S6 Edge the back spread and battery are not removable any longer. This implies the SIM-opening needed to move from behind the back plate to the top-edge. The base is involved by an earphone jack, microUSB attachment and speaker. 

The camera module which joins a 16MP 1/2.6-inch CMOS sensor with a quick F1.9 gap and optical picture adjustment is situated at the middle top of the back plate. To the right you'll discover the LED blaze and heart rate screen. Different details are in accordance with the current year's top of the line gadgets and incorporate a 64-bit octa-center processor, a 2600 mAh battery, remote charging and a quick charging mode that gives you 4 hours of ordinary use in only ten minutes of charging time. 

The camera applications on past Samsung S models offered a ton of elements and capacities, however lamentably that likewise implied they felt over-burden and not extremely instinctive. On the new models the camera application has been rearranged alongside whatever remains of client interface, and this has certainly been a positive stride. In Auto mode the interface is presently customized for depiction operation yet a Pro mode has been executed for the individuals who incline toward more control. 

Speedy dispatch is another new element that permits you to open the camera application by double tapping the home catch on the front. This works quickly and is an incredible contrasting option to opening the application by means of the home screen symbol or the lock screen alternate way. 

The Auto mode screen highlights a section of symbols, including streak control, HDR and the settings menu on the left edge. Not at all like in past renditions of the application this section is not adaptable, but rather you can make it vanish to de-mess the screen by tapping on the little bolt at the top. On the right you'll discover virtual video and screen catches and the front camera switch. At the base there's the mode catch. On the shooting mode screen you can change to Pro mode or select one of the exceptional modes, for example, Panorama, Selective Focus or Slow Motion video. Here you additionally have the alternative to download and introduce more modes, for instance the Dual Camera, Sound and Shot and Beauty Face modes we have seen on past models. 

In the settings menu you can set the photo and video determination, actuate network lines and characterize the capacity of the volume keys in addition to other things. The last can control the screen, video or advanced zoom. In Auto mode you can center by tapping on the live view picture. Presentation is not connected to the center point but rather you can bolt center and introduction by tapping and holding. Centering works the same path in Pro mode however here you get the choice the change from focus weighted to framework or spot metering. Also you get manual control over center, white equalization, ISO (100 to 800 just) and presentation remuneration. You can likewise spare your most loved settings to a custom profile 

The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge bolster manual control of shade velocities in outsider applications, for example, Camera FV-5 or Manual Camera. There are bits of gossip about Samsung propelling an upgrade that will incorporate the component in the stock camera application. Ideally such an overhaul would likewise bring Raw backing as the record arrangement is right now not accessible in the stock nor outsider applications. 

With this most recent gadget era Samsung has presented a marginally less complex client interface, with less alternatives and pre-introduced Samsung applications. The same standards have been connected to the camera application, bringing about a more streamlined imaging highlight set out of the crate. Notwithstanding the default Auto mode you get the Pro mode depicted on the camera operation page, the Panorama, Selective Focus and Virtual Shot components we have seen on past gadgets and in addition Slow and Fast movement video modes we'll spread on the video page. HDR mode is available by means of a symbol on the primary screen. 

Numerous more modes are accessible as downloads from the Samsung application store, including Animated Photo, Sports Shot and Sound and Shot which we have all taken a gander at in surveys of past Samsung models. It's additionally worth specifying that, as on the Note 4, Night Mode, which already must be enacted physically, now kicks in consequently when a scene is excessively dull. We have included specimens on the Image Quality page of this survey. Beneath we are having a more critical take a gander at the Galaxy S6 Edge's most fundamental imaging highlights. 

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge's display mode is basically unaltered from the renditions we have seen on the Note 4 and Galaxy S5. Scene pictures are expansive with an amazing measure of subtle element that takes into account broad zooming in the picture viewer. Picture size differs a little however vertical 360 degree scenes are around 20,000 pixels wide and 3000 pixels tall. Vertical scenes have a tendency to be just around 1500 pixels tall. 

Sewing quality is great also yet moving subjects can sporadically bring about some ghosting. The danger of this occurrence is higher in lower light. In dimmer conditions you can likewise wind up with some delicate quality in your pictures, so it pays to take additional consideration while panning. You can shoot both in scene or picture introduction and in the event that you don't need or need to catch an entire 360-degree display, you can press the screen catch whenever to stop. The application will then make a scene with the pictures you have recorded up to that point. 

Regardless of any undeniable updates the Samsung display mode is still one of the best around and takes into account catching immersive pictures that can likewise make quite expansive prints. 


Like for all intents and purposes all cell phone cameras the Galaxy S6 Edge battles with highlight and shadow subtle element in high-differentiate conditions. Empowering HDR mode detectably mitigates the issue. Not at all like more established forms of HDR mode this most recent emphasis does not demonstrate any ghosting on moving subjects nor is there a perceptible pace punishment. 

There are no parameters for adjusting the impact yet the outcomes look great as they seem to be, with the power fluctuating between scenes. As should be obvious in the specimen beneath a detectably measure of highlight point of interest is recuperated while shadows are just lifted marginally, helping the picture hold a characteristic look. Generally speaking, in high-differentiate conditions it's a smart thought to leave HDR empowered constantly. 

HDR mode can likewise be valuable when shooting in low light, for instance to better adjust the solid difference amongst lit and dull regions in indoor or night shot
