Xperia XZ2 v Galaxy S9 – Why Sony’s camera has this one big advantage | Tech | Life & Style

and were both revealed at Mobile World Congress last weekend.

These new flagships are packed with updates and plenty of new features with Sony even fully refreshing the design of its latest XZ range.

Gone are the chunky bezels with the XZ2 now featuring a bigger screen and soft curves that are made from 3D glass.

Both phones also have faster processors, wireless charging and improved audio.

Some of the biggest updates, however, come from the cameras as Sony and Samsung have both added extra features to their rear snappers.

The Galaxy S9 is now much better in low light with it including something called Super Low Light mode.

This allows the camera to drop to an aperture of F1.5 and capture detail in almost total darkness.

Samsung says its Dual Aperture (F1.5 – F2.4) automatically lets in more light when it’s dark and less light when it’s too bright – similar to the human eye.

Meanwhile Sony has added the ability to shoot video footage in full 4K HDR – the first time this has been seen on a smartphone.

Clearly, there’s plenty to like about both of these cameras but there’s one feature where Sony should come out on top.

The Japanese technology firm introduced super slow-motion capture last year which allows their device to record footage at 960 frames per second.

Now they’ve upgraded this feature on the XZ2 by improving the quality to full 1080p HD.

This means super slow-motion footage captured on this new devices will be packed with much more detail and sharper image quality.

Samsung has also opted for a Super Slow-motion option on its new Galaxy S9 which again allows video to be captured at an incredibly slow 960fps.

It’s a nice addition but it doesn’t have the same quality as the new Xperia XZ2.

That’s because the Korean firm is only allowing this type of footage to be filmed at a resolution of 720p.

Samsung does say they’ve made their slow motion feature incredibly easy to use and are giving S9 owners better ways to share their footage.

This includes allowing background music to be added as well as easily creating, editing and sharing GIF files with a simple tap.

Express.co.uk will be testing these cameras in the coming months and will being you a full review soon but it seems both the Xperia XZ2 and Galaxy S9 have plenty going for them.
