Now that the specifications of the phones are better than ever, and competition between each company becomes more fierce, one of the most important functions in which manufacturers focus is the ability of phones to make good pictures . The latest advertising campaign Apple boasts the quality of the camera to present the stunning photos that users have taken with your iPhone 6 and placed on banners around the world.
To compare how the cameras of the most popular and recent flagship phones play, We decided to do three phones : the Samsung Galaxy S6 (16 megapixel camera), cell HTC One M9 ( with a 20 megapixel camera) and the Apple iPhone 6 phone ( 8 megapixel camera). Pictures were taken both outdoors and indoors under different lighting conditions, and test that reflect how the average user would use the camera.

Each photo of each series was made within a period of minutes (and sometimes even seconds) of each other, in the same place and the same distance from the object of focus. However, due to the different aspect ratios in the iPhone, will look as if it had been farther or closer to the object of focus. With the exception of two instances in which the mode of high dynamic range (HDR) was activated, all cameras are configured at Auto mode. A photo was taken as the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge; but do not panic – this phone is equipped with the same Galaxy S6 camera.
