    From the sample images I've seen the note 7s camera is best, with the S7 just slightly behind. It's a shame they've had the battery issue as now I cant decide if I want to order an S7 edge or wait until the Note is fixed.

    You can get the best DSLR and lenses on the market and still take crappy photos. How is a phone any different?

    With that being said, I really like my S7.

    I'm not saying these are the best shots in the world, but I did take them with the Samsung Galaxy S7 in RAW mode and I'm quite happy with it and allows me to process my photos my way in Lightroom. Sure its noisier but I don't care about noise, I like the fact that there is no jpeg artifacts and there a lot more dynamic range to play with.

    Here is a JPEG shot straight out of the S7, no processing besides what the phone did to it.

    Even the JPEG processing is quite good, but its not always perfect which is why its awesome that the phone can shoot Jpeg + Raw so you can choose later.

    I have to say I felt the same when I had a Samsung (Note 3 not any of the ones being discussed). I tend to take a lot more phone pics now that I have the iPhone but I liked the Samsung operating system much better.

    I like how the phone works on the iPhone.
    I can't stand how the Phone works on an Android. It's an app. On the iPhone it seems more built around it being a phone first instead of an add on module.

    camera-wise, all the vendors will be leap frogging themselves time and time again.
    And remember, the iPhone 7 and 7S have different cameras. The 7 only 1 camera, the 7S has the TWO cameras.

    and if you think 2 cameras is better than one, then you should check this one out ==> How This Magical 16-Lens Camera Will Actually Work

    Even the camera apps for iPhone are simple to use. My favorite is Pro Camera, full manual controls. Works just like Apple Camera with added features.

    When I'm in the forest lost, cold, dark and shivering, I prefer my phones being able to start a bonfire. So Galaxy 7 Note is for me :)
