Yesterday I received the official Samsung Protective Lens Cover for my S7. Samsung also sell this for the S7 Edge.
Below are some camera samples and comparisons with the LG G5. To view full size click on each photo.
Samsung S7 – No lenses used. Snapped at 4:3. Cropped to 16:9.
LG G5 – 16mp
Samsung S7 -Wide Lens attached
LG G5 – 8mp Wide Angle Lens
Samsung S7 – Wide
LG G5 – Wide lens
Samsung S7 – Telephoto Lens
I have since discovered that apparently the wide angle lens can also be used for macro shots. This I need to test still. The Telephoto lens can suffer light flare easily, but this can be removed by blocking the light hitting the lens awkwardly.
All the S7 shots were originally 4:3. I just cropped then to 16:9. I really liked the dog burst shots taken with the telephoto lens. The wide shots were as expected. Quality seemed similar to the LG G5, although in places the edge does go to the S7 with the lenses attached. However, if you have the LG G5, you don’t need to attach anything.
The actual case for the S7 is a very strong and sturdy affair and even has a raised grip section on the right back end. Neat touch.
So what do you think? If you head over to my flickr I have created a dedicated album. The dog shots were all taken with the telephoto lens. CLICK HERE.
