Samsung’s smartphones sport some of the best cameras in the industry – we all know that – and the Galaxy S7 is just another example. The device is equipped with an amazing 12-megapixel ‘Dual Pixel’ snapper that offers excellent low-light photos, so even if there are only 12 megapixels, the trick lays deep in Samsung’s special Dual Pixel sensor.
This is a special photography tech, with every single pixel on the image sensor containing no less than two photodiodes instead of just the one found on standard smartphone cameras. This means that every single pixel is working together to focus on your subject. As a result, the handset’s camera can focus and shoot a photo in mere milliseconds, capturing the sharpest photo possible at this moment.
And I must add that I am truly surprised by Galaxy S7‘s camera low-light performance thanks to those large sensor pixels, so you just have to start with the basics and learn how to use it. These steps will help you all the way:
