Beside the various hardware performance tests, the new Samsung Galaxy S6 is now challenged by Galaxy Note 4 and iPhone 6 Plus in a video recording comparison. This test was conducted by the guys from mobile-review.com, and the results are showed up in the videos below.
Technically, Samsung Galaxy S6 and also the Note 4 are bringing a 16-megapixel Sony IMX240 camera sensor, with the exception that the new GS6 comes with new lens that offer a f/1.9 aperture compared to the f/2.2 found at the Galaxy Note 4. However, both devices are packing OIS and they can record videos at 2160p@30fps, 1080p@60fps, or 720@120fps.
Looking at the iPhone 6 Plus we notice the presence of a 8-megapixel iSight sensor with 5 elements lens, optical image stabilization and f/2.2 aperture. There’s also a dual-tone LED flash, HDR and video recording at 1080p@60fps, and 720p@240fps.
As a conclusion after watching these videos, we can say that Samsung Galaxy S6 offers a better video recording quality compared to the iPhone 6 Plus, but however, the quality of its 16-megapixel sensor can’t raise the standard of the Note 4 phablet video capabilities. Which one would you choose based on this test and why?
