    Ok I just took these sample pics, the phones are a 2014 Moto G and a Galaxy S6. The camera is a Canon T2i. See if you can tell which is which

    My guesses for the S6:

    1) Folgers - the first one is S6.
    2) Fence - first one S6.
    3) Wood - first one S6
    4) Leaves - third one S6
    5) Chainsaw - first one S6.
    6) Sunglasses - third one S6
    7) Rose - first one S6.


    I'm no expert, so I probably got most of these wrong, if not all. lol.

    So you are putting up an 18megapixel camera that is 5 generations old against two cell phone cameras? If you post the raws I'll give you an answer.

    For the rose the third photo is the t2i. Actually I think the third photos are the canon.

    Looks like they are consistently in the same order. My guess, which means little, is that the dSLR are 1, Moto 2, Samsung 3.

    constant order?

    Samsung, Motorola, Canon.

    Can't say I really like any of the photos-- the third rose, first chainsaw, first chainlink fence are the standouts for various reasons.

    In good light with no chosen focus point it may be hard to tell them apart. Although i'd vote the images which look obviously sharp as the Canon. Never ever ever will a phone match a DSLR quality in anything but a fixed focus good light shot. Even then i at least would rather have my DSLR if the shot is important.

    That minuscule sensors lose out in low light, with zoom and bokeh. Ohh and control.

    DSLR's just knock it out of the park every time in the right hands. Phones are multitaskers. DSLR's are a tool for one job.

    Yours, a Nikon shooter. :cool:

    Edit, i'll say the bottom shot in every case is the DSLR. If i'm wrong... i'll eat a lense. :)

    First S6 leaving the second for the Moto G.

    Typically, the DSLR gets credited with the shallow depth of field effects (which, by the way, you can control to get the effect you want) . But the Canon doesn't have a very fast lens attached, and the Samsung has a f1.9 lens, albeit with a pitifully sized sensor.

    Blimey! The Galaxy photos are close to the full blown camera photos! They look really nice.
    Am I ever split between the Note 5 and new Nexus 5, think I need to write down what I want and the pros and cons of each.
    I just need to know how good the new Nexus camera is, and that it has wireless charging.

    I was really impressed by the camera app on the s6, it is much less bloated than the past.

    A - S6
    B - Moto G
    C - Canon




    doh!!! subsequently see this has been answered .... at least I was right :D


    Other than the miss focusing on the rose for the Moto G - it's actually doing well for a $160 smartphone in fairness to it. Yes the others are better - but the G isn't lagging miles and miles behind. It's very serviceable.

    It would not focus on the rose, I took at least 5 pics and gave up. The S6 would everytime

    So the camera on the S6 is pretty good.

    Out of interest, how were you using the DSLR? Auto or some other semi-manual control (P, Av, Tv), format (Jpeg, RAW), other settings (picture styles, noise reduction, etc.)

    Even a low end Canon DSLR with kit lens should take noticeably better shots than the very best camera phone available if set-up and used correctly ;)

    It was set to no flash mode, after I took the pics I also noticed the G was on hdr mode
