Ever since I have owned a phone that had great outdoor picture quality, I’ve really taken to whipping it out whenever I see a gorgeous bunch of plants, trees, clouds- you know the kind, with the light beaming down on Mother Nature to display her in all her glory. Anyway, the aforementioned phone was the Sony Xperia C3; it is great for taking photos outdoors because it captures natural lighting really well (I don’t know the mechanisms of it but I’m grateful for it), but if you zoom into the pictures, you’ll see that they are pixelated and not of high quality. They do look great at first glance though.
Since February, I’ve had the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017). It had just been released in January so it is a phone that is modern, chic, and most importantly, a great picture-taker. I was really impressed by the picture quality when my sister and I fiddled around with the one on display in the shop. So impressed that I decided to buy it. The 16MP cameras on the front and back supercede the 12/8 MP on the Samsung Galaxy S8. I realise that more megapixels does not necessarily equate to higher quality, but I was surprised by that.
Anyway, I’ve inserted here a few of the photos taken on both phones. Have fun guessing which is which! Tally ho 🙂
