In a recent outing to a "foreign missions experience" I had several opportunities to take some low light photos. While in the images it may look like the room is completely dark there were lights in the room. Many of the objects I chose to photograph had a light on or near them. Yes these are some pretty intense low light situations, but at the same time I was personally expecting the S7 to perform better due to Samsung's claims.
Most of the images I shot in low light had tons of grain and noise. These images were unusable. I also did the best I could to hold my camera steady using both hands, still some of my photos turned out blurry. The camera does include both OIS and the dual pixel sensor. These two together should have meant that all images were sharp with absolutely no blur.
There is a silver lining here. Images I took in rooms with overhead lighting, and all outdoor photos turned out great. Colors were vibrant, and images were super sharp. I still need some time to better test the camera. Maybe this is just a case of higher than necessary expectations. I'll post the images below.
Please add your low-light photos from whatever camera you are using, to compare. I'd love to see how other phones are matching up. Also if you have an S7 or S7 Edge please post photos. Maybe it's just my camera?!
