The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge have already received much praise for their design and build quality, aside from the fact that these handsets have top-notch innards that can rival the best of flagship smartphones. Cameras are often a major concern for potential customers and those who are still on the fence about picking up Samsung’s latest flagship will be pleased to know that it has topped DxOMark’s industry standard tests for camera sensors.
In fact the first two places on DxOMark’s list are now taken up by Samsung devices, the Galaxy S6 Edge and the Galaxy Note 4 respectively. iPhone 6 Plus and the iPhone 6 come in third and fourth.
DxOMark’s tests reveal that the Galaxy S6 Edge’s camera is capable of capturing photos with low noise levels and very fine detail. Exposure is good, autofocus is fast and a good level of detail is preserved in low-light shots.
The sensor also provides nice white balance and color in all outdoor conditions. It also praises flash-only results which show good detail with minimal noise, good color and accurate white balance.
DxOMark also points out some cons which include slight color fringing, noticeable noise in low-light shots and slightly yellow/green white balance when flash and tungsten lights are mixed.
The Galaxy S6 Edge is awarded an outstanding score of 86 by DxOMark Mobile, the highest of any mobile device currently available in the market.
