The Ultimate Camera Showdown: Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra vs iPhone 15 Pro Max

The battle between the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra and the iPhone 15 Pro Max is finally here, and the stakes are higher than ever. Last year, the iPhone 15 Pro Max took the crown with 6.5 points to 3.5, but can Samsung’s AI-powered 2024 flagship claim redemption?

Slow-Mo and Special Modes

The S24 Ultra brings 4K footage at 120 frames per second, making it the new king of slow-mo. The feature is seamless, with no strings attached, and you can even slow down any video on the spot by holding down on it. This, combined with its impressive portrait mode video and ultra close-up macro shots, gives Samsung the edge in special modes.

Selfies

Samsung takes the win in selfies, with its successor naturally improving upon the previous model. The iPhone is consistent, but Samsung swings between exceptional and average, with its best being better than the iPhone’s best.

Noise Reduction

One of the biggest changes in the S24 Ultra is its improved noise reduction. While it’s not perfect, faces are crisper, and there’s less noise in videos. However, the main problem of darker areas suffering from ugly amounts of noise hasn’t been fully solved.

Camera App

The camera app itself is a significant improvement, with a smoother interface, updated icons, and a more practical compact menu design. You get way more options with the Samsung, including ultra-niche settings that only Samsung seems to care about. The only remaining weakness is the fact that it’s still a little hard to use one-handed.

Editing Features

The S24 Ultra feels like the start of a new era in camera comparisons, where AI-powered editing features are becoming a major factor. The iPhone’s editor is fairly simple, but the Samsung offers a range of advanced tools that make it feel like you’re making photos and videos, not just taking them.

Photo and Video Quality

In terms of photo quality, the S24 Ultra has improved upon the S23 Ultra, with better contrast, refined color science, and less washed-out photos. However, it’s not perfect, and the iPhone still takes better quality photos overall. For videos, Samsung has made strides in noise reduction and dynamic range, but the iPhone still has an edge in terms of detail and clarity.

Nighttime Performance

Samsung has paid particular attention to nighttime photos, and the results are impressive. Both phones are very good and similar, with Samsung exceling in moon photos and the iPhone better at night portraits.

The Verdict

In the end, Samsung has clawed back a lot this generation, with a smoother camera app, faster shutter speed, and advanced editing tools. While the iPhone still wins in some important categories, Samsung takes the overall win with 6.5 points to 4.5. The promise has been fulfilled, and now it’s Apple’s turn to step up its game.
