I hope these Photo Samples must have made it clear whether iPhone 7 Plus or Galaxy S7 is the best camera phone. There is a big difference between iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus Camera quality. iPhone 7 was certainly a looser when we compared it with Galaxy S7, but this is not the case here.
Samsung Galaxy S7 gives more light to Photos that sometimes distorts the output, e.g. have a look at the girl face where the real color of her face is gone. The output with more light can make photos look good at times, but it looses the natural color of the object. This is not the case with iPhone 7 Plus.
As far as Zoomed in view is concerned, there is no doubt that iPhone 7 Plus beats Samsung Galaxy S7 by all means. The new telephoto Camera helps iPhone 7 Plus capture clear photos even in zoom mode. There is one more reason; iPhone 7 Plus features Optical Zoom, but Samsung Galaxy S7 is limited to Digital Zoom. There isn’t so much you can expect from Digital Zoom.
