Before we go deep into the sample, let's talk about the camera specifications for the two phones.

The iPhone XS Max and iPhone XS are equipped with the same camera scheme, so they're shooting the same thing. The XS Max is equipped with a 12 million main camera, a 1-by-2. 55-inch image sensor (1.4 μ m pixels). F / 1.8 six lens, 26 mm equivalent focal length, and 12 million 12 megapixels double zoom telephoto secondary camera, 1 x 3.4 inch image sensor (1.0 μ m pixels), f / 2.4 six lens, 52mm equivalent focal length. Both lenses have optical image anti-shake, phase detection auto-focus, 4-LED dual-color flash, support for 30-60 fps 4Kvideo frequency (V.F.),240 fps 1080p video.

Samsung is slightly different. The Galaxy S10 has the same rear panning as the Galaxy S10, but a 8 million-pixel RGB depth sensor is added to the front of the fuselage. The rear of the fuselage uses a three-shot scheme, including 12 million pixels, 26 mm equivalent focal length wide angle lenses, 12 million pixels, 52 mm equivalent focal length long focal lenses and 16 million pixels, and 12 mm equivalent focal length extended angle lenses. The wide-angle and long-focal lenses provide optical anti-trembling (OIS), wide-angle lenses with variable aperture of f / a 1.5 and f / 2. 4, long-focus lenses f / 2. 4 and extended-angle lenses f / 2. 2.

In order to save everyone's time, let's talk about the results of the comparison first.

The overall performance of the iPhone XS Max and Samsung Galaxy S10 phones is excellent, with each phone winning or losing in different scenarios. Through a careful comparison of the RAW format, the foreign media AppleInsider has found that the Samsung Galaxy S10 has an advantage in low-light environments because sensors can capture more light. In this way, S10 does not need to rely on portrait mode, the depth of field effect is also more natural.


Samsung also overtook Apple in terms of its extended angle, which captures a 123rd-degree field-of-view (FoV), that is impressive in terms of slice effect and provides a much greater panoramic effect. So the final conclusion is that the Samsung Galaxy S10/S10 doesn't completely outperform Apple's iPhone XS/XS Max, so if you have higher requirements for taking pictures, you can choose between the two phones depending on your shooting preferences.

All right, now let's make a comparison.

The samples provided here are taken using the built-in native camera of the cell phone, and no modification is made in addition to the compression of the size. If you want to get the artwork of the shot, you can access the AppleInsider article page for viewing.Portal

Depth of field photography

First, AppleInsider compared two flagship depth-of-field shots. In iPhone, this is called portrait mode (Portrait Mode), photographs taken in this mode allow blurring of the background behind the subject, depending on the shooting angle and the different light effects.

Samsung also offers a similar feature on the Galaxy S10/S10, called Live Focus. Allows the user to apply one of the four special effects to the background after completion of the shoot. The four effects are background blurring (Portrait Mode), similar to iPhone, can adjust the degree of ambiguity, and there are three modes of rotation, scaling and coloration. The rotating special effect is that in addition to the foreground, the background is like applying a rotating fuzzy filter, which seems to have a sense of rotation, while scaling is the application of a radial fuzzy filter, so that the main body has a sense of rapid movement; And color is the area outside the main body turned black and white.

Both the depth-of-field effects are achieved through the optimization of the algorithm, both of which have achieved varying degrees of success. On the whole, the performance of iPhone is better than that of Galaxy S10, especially when the subject is not human. As you can see in the sample sheet, the Galaxy S 10 looks a bit hard around the dog's ears.

When the subject moved from the animal to the object, the Galaxy S10 performed better and saw a clearer line around the ice cream. What's more exciting for AppleInsider during the shooting process is that the S10 can be closer to the subject than the iPhone.

Next we aim the subject at the human. It can be seen that the iPhone's saturation is higher and the color of the skin is more expressive and is close to the real person in color reduction. The face that is taken with the Samsung Live Focus mode often appears to be a little pale.

Outdoor scene shooting

Samsung's ultra-wide-angle lens moved the AppleInsider editor, saying it was able to shoot more under the lens. The following is an ultra wide-angle photo taken using Galaxy S10. This is essential for photographing landscapes and landscapes. One drawback, however, is that there is a lot of distortion on the edge of the picture.

Another benefit of ultra-wide angles is taking panoramas, with S10 having more vertical space than iPhone, and image content being richer. In the image below, the foreign media AppleInsider scales the panorama taken by iPhone and S10 and shows that the visual space gap between the two is very large.

While the Galaxy S10 does well on ultra-wide lenses, it is somewhat disappointing to maximize digital zoom with a long lens. After using the same 10-fold digital zoom image, the S10 image can almost be described as "fragmentation". IPhone's photos, by contrast, are more colourful and sharper. Although there is a lot of noise in the image at 10 times zoom, both images are clearer.

Shoot food

Both phones are doing a great job shooting food, but Samsung's images are too saturated. This has always been a problem with Samsung cameras, and is more common in Samsung mobile phones. In multiple scenes, Samsung automatically detects and automatically adjusts the lens mode according to the light conditions at the time. But this smart feature can't be turned on / off manually, sometimes it helps, sometimes it doesn't. When photographing food, it may detect that it is food and automatically raise saturation and contrast to make it more attractive.

In addition, the Samsung Galaxy S10 has a special food model, which adds a little brightness to the center and blurs the surrounding area, thus enhancing the attractiveness of the food. However, foreign media attempts to find a bit too much, but more inclined to iPhone or S10 standard image.

Front camera

Both flagship front-facing cameras are very good. First, the depth-of-field selfie in the outdoor scene. The comparison shows that the iPhone is a clear winner. The color of the skin is more accurate, the subject is better separated from the background, and there are more details. Samsung's selfie seems a bit twisted, and some of the depth-of-field effects outweigh the subject. In addition, Samsung photos to smooth the skin, making it more "beautiful".

Next is the contrast of selfies under low light conditions. You can see that Galaxy S10 performs better. The overall balance effect of the photo is excellent, the noise is very little, and the brightness of the subject is obviously higher than that of the iPhone..
