Comparator of XDA iPhone 13 vs Samsung Galaxy S21 Camera - Galaxy User Guide

Can the Galaxy s21 cameras really compete with Apple's latest iphone this year? Stay tuned to find out [Music] how it is going here. Welcome to another camera comparison with the iPhone 13 today, I'm having it up against the Galaxy S21. Let's see how apple's newest iphone stacks up against the rival of Samsung last year- and I know the s22 is right around the corner, but the s21 is still a very capable phone with a very capable set of cameras. It has a standard, 12 megapixel wide-angle camera similar to the iPhone 13, but also has a 64 megapixel telephoto lens capable of three times hybrid zoom.

The main sensor on the s21 is also capable of a much longer zoom range than the iphone 13 for most of the time but they actually have larger pixels in the main sensor to help with low light performance and they also have the sensor shift stabilization found in the iphone 12 pro max from last year. I didn't really see a lot of stabilization gain in the 12 pro max last year, but we'll see how it works in the iPhone 13. So, as I always do, I am going to show you a bunch of photos and videos in both good and low light conditions until you decide which of these two camera systems might be the best for you. So this is a rear, video test of the iPhone 13 and the Galaxy s20 ultra.

This is being shot at 4k, 30 frames per second and we are just starting with the ultra wide angle camera on each now, so I just pan around. To give you a feel for what this looks like here on each of these two phones and the field of view, the color differences, all that again I'll just pan down one more time to see how the exposure is with the sky, because sometimes when I pan down the sky, it gets blown out and both seem to be doing a pretty good job with that, as you can see there I'll pan over to the left so I can check out the trees and all the shadows and all that else looking pretty good there. So you can check these out notice any differences in the colors between the ultra-wide and this one as well as exposure adjustments, etc.

Now let's go ahead and pan in to the right and we'll test zoom on the cell tower, like I usually do. You then have three times optical here on the s21 and you can actually go for 12 times digital right there and let's go ahead and test this on the post first with the iphone so nice and snappy auto focus and also some pretty decent background blur or bokeh or shallow depth of field, whatever you want to refer to it, especially given the smaller 12 megapixel sensor.

So let's go ahead and try to test stabilization here as we walk down stairs and walk it through the pathway, and let's go ahead and try to jog it through the pathway to test out the stabilization here and we'll pull up here and pan up to the sky into the tree line to see how it handles this really bright afternoon light here. Here is a quick test on the rear-facing cameras for cinematic mode on the iphone 13 and portrait video on the galaxy s21. I just want to test this on a person, a human subject because s21 didn't seem to do as well on my dog, but did fairly well iphone 13. Also here is a quick test of how cinematic mode on iPhone 13 and portrait video works on the front camera and some afternoon light here. This will be a front camera test with the iPhone 13 and the Galaxy S21.

They are both recording from front cameras and this is recorded at 4k, 30 frames per second here. I'm in my usual test spot to start out in the outdoors and some shade because I don't want to have any kind of harsh lighting on these front cameras to start. Here you can see here that the sun is coming down in front of me and you can see how the cameras handle that and let's go ahead and pan around, so that you can see how these cameras and the video quality change into the changing light conditions.

So with the light behind me here, the afternoon sky or the sun right behind me, and both these phones are actually doing a pretty good job of handling that light, usually a lot of phones blow out the background and overexpose it, but pretty even exposure here, even if I come here now with the sun directly on these front cameras. Both are still doing a pretty good job at controlling this exposure and everything else with that video quality. So let me know what you think of this front video here at 4k. So here is the front-facing camera test of the cinematic mode on the iphone 13 and portrait video on the Galaxy s. 21 both create this artificial background blur here in the video footage and I'm starting on the shades with some control lighting.

So this should give each of these phones an optimal opportunity to provide the good edge detection, with some nice background blur here. So I'll just pan around and see how these change, if at all, into the different light conditions here and how this background blur is handled and I'll actually go to test stabilizer to see if we can sort of trick this out to see if the effect fades to any kind of changing conditions. This is at 4k 30 frames per second with the Ultra Wide-angle lens to start here, so I will pan around.

To give you a feel for how these ultra wide angle lenses compare in this particular low light situation and from what I see in the viewfinder, the galaxy s 21 is considerably brighter than the iphone 13 with the ultra-wide angle lens here at the expense of more noise, and so let us go ahead and punch the main camera here on each so iphone, 13 and galaxy s21 and you'll immediately notice that the image got much brighter and that's because these main cameras let in more light. Also, the image quality is gonna be a little bit brighter here and I'll pan around to see how that looks and that bright street light they are actually both doing a fairly decent job.

Perhaps the s21 glaring it a little bit more, but it is a bright street light and if you're wondering there are some clouds. Basically it's sort of grayish- it's not pitch black here and let's go ahead and film this one and see how they perform in a different lighting situation and already it's getting darker as I recite around this corner and they both brighten up the image, much more than what I see with my own eyes and there is some noise here, and there are some clouds here again. Yes you can actually see some of the cloud definition right there on each, but yeah you're gonna get a lot of noise because it is trying to brighten the scene here and I will pan over here to the left where a bit of mixed lighting situation.

Is there an 4k video test on both phones? [Music] [Music?] Hi everybody, so here's a low light, video from the front camera on my iphone 13 and galaxy s21. This is shot at 4k, 30 frames per second and I am starting my usual testing spot here in some pretty good lighting conditions in a bit of low light. To give you a feel for how these cameras perform and some fairly good lighting. You can see how these front camera handles all that and so far as I can see in the viewfinder the iPhone is skewing towards a much warmer color temperature, whereas the s21 is on the much cooler side of the spectrum, and somewhere in between it is what the actual color looks like so another.

Let's go ahead and start walking to test stabilization, and we'll move into a much darker area. So we can see how these cameras perform in a bit of a less difficult lighting situation and so I'll also be walking by a fountain to my right. Also we test the microphone quality against this background noise and so let's pull up here and we pan to the whole. So I can see how these front camera do to a bunch of those bright street lights and from what I can see, the s21 definitely is letting this out a bit more than the iPhone is right here and let's move over to this darker area again. The S21 is a bit brighter than the iphone and again is definitely still a warmer colour temperature than the cooler end of the temperature showing by the s21 and that's going.

I think it's going to come down to what kind of image processing you prefer, but I do not think with either of these you will get really natural colors. Both are not going to give you any kind of natural color representation and while Apple may have improved their low light performance incrementally I think that most people would say that the s21 did better, but that's only because it is brighter and brighter isn't always better. I still think that Apple has just incrementally improved their low light performance.

So that's my quick summary of what I thought but I'm interested to know what you think so leave me a comment and let me know which one you prefer and why you have any other questions or comments, leave them in the comments below and I'll try to answer what I can as always, thanks for watching [Music].
