Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus and the Galaxy Note 5 which are reported as the best phones so fur. The phones are best suited for photographers. They are 5.7-inch phones and have fascinating processors and beautiful Quad HD displays, they offer live broadcasting to YouTube, and boast fast wireless charging. We featured an article for the best smartphone cameras and Samsung Galaxy S6 out competed the others by fur but it doesn’t provide RAW support as the S6 Plus.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Plus provides amazing RAW support. RAW capture makes a big difference for smartphone image quality and most preferred by any professional photographer. A photographer would tell you that a RAW photo is like a digital version of a film negative. It preserves all the image quality that a camera is capable of capturing, before things like image processing and JPEG compression destroy fine detail. RAW not only gives you better image quality, it also lets you rescue photos that might otherwise be trash.
Smartphones that have the best cameras offer RAW capture that’s why they always win over the others. Reviewed.com provides that the upcoming iOS probably will not support RAW. Android 5.1 has given other phone companies an upper hand. Sony and Samsung have all the tools necessary to open up RAW support but they’ve chosen not to do so until now.
Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge perform better than other smartphones that are deemed the best like the LG-G4, a phone that offers a nearly identical image sensor, an excellent camera app, and RAW support. The new Samsung Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus will both ship with Android 5.1—RAW support included. The phones do not only favor photographers. Apps like VSCO Cam, Camera FV-5, and even Instagram are upgraded to work with RAW images, then the final, edited JPEGs would be that much better.
RAW shooting has its downside. The photos are about three to four times larger than the JPEG, and neither the Galaxy S6 Edge+ or Note 5 offer expandable memory. Furthermore, the files can’t be easily shared or viewed until they’ve been developed into JPEGs.
People like sexy and cute photos but the RAW capture does not give ideal sexy photos as a curved display or live broadcasting or even Samsung Pay but it’s poised to be a real feather in Samsung’s cap. In simple terms, RAW photos are the best when it comes photography or suits mobile photographers who want the best photos when it comes to details. This advancement will push Samsung’s devices to the top.
