First appeared on SamMobile last May 5, we learned that Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 do not have the same camera sensors. There are apparently weird sensor combinations, and we have verified it last Friday. We got the chance to toy around a Samsung Galaxy S6 with a Sony Camera sensor last Friday during a roundtable discussion. Luckily, we brought our Galaxy S6 with Samsung Camera sensor, so we took our chance to take similar subjects at AUTO settings to see which sensor fares better.
Below are comparison photos for your reference. We’d love to get your thoughts on the sample photos. High resolution versions of the photos with preserved EXIF data are available below this post for further scrutiny.

Some (photography n00b) observations:
- Size (in terms of megabytes) Photos we took with the S6 with Samsung sensor are smaller.
- Camera Model shown on EXIF: SM-G920F (Samsung Sensor); SM-G920X (Sony Sensor)
- Using Auto Mode, the photos we took using the Galaxy S6 with Samsung Camera apear to be sharper.
What about you guys? What do you think about the sample photos we took? Try downloading the uncompressed versions, and let us know your thoughts on the comments section below.
