Apple iPhone 7 vs Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge 4K video stabilization comparison

A Simple Click Really Helps

Apple’s iPhone 7 features an improved camera system with optical image stabilization (OIS) in addition to Apple’s excellent digital stabilization, so we were curious to see whether it managed to record smoother and more stable video than another great camera phone, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.

  1. I almost think this was purposely bias…you didn't even film it right Yukon should have had the same field of view for both
    And only used the regularly camera and not the telephoto lense

  2. Looks like the iPhone 7 has digital stabilization on it as well, which will reduce the quality further, please check the settings. But both phones suck with anything beyond mild movement, need a gimbal.

  3. Of course, this kind of comparison is very subjective, but my experience with Samsumg vs iphone camera capabilities is this: For the last three consecutive generations of phones, I have owned a Samsung Note or S series while my wife and daughters have chosen the iphones (4, 5 and 6, with my wife choosing the 6+, the last time we swapped phones for newer models) With no exceptions, the Iphones have had inferior low-light photo and video capabilities with no perceivable difference video-camera-wise in normal lighting conditions. I say this as it is my personal observation, as well as that of my wife and daughters, who begrudgingly admit that the Samsung phones seem to have had superior cameras over-all over the last several years. Of course, this comparison excludes the new Iphone7 as our family has yet to make that jump (but soon). That said, everyone I know who owns the new Iphone 7 claims that the gap narrows considerably between Samsung and Apple because of the improvements that Apple has made in its latest flagship phone. Please note that I am not a Samsung fanboy at all. In fact, if Apple would provide native QI charging, and expandable storage, I'd probably go with an Iphone, if only to reduce the phone insanity around our house. Thanks for the comparison and cheers.
