    will the VZW Droid Turbo 2 have a better camera than the Note 5?

    I know it's still early (only 7AM here ), but based on previous Motorola VZW Droid phones, is this likely?

    Thanks!

    I doubt it. My note5 takes awesome pics and is arguably the best camera or close to it on the market.

    I hope the camera is improved over last years, however i dont see it being as god as the note5

    Sent with my white Note5 with nonremovable back and no SDcard!

    Based on score? I think they're the same.

    Even if the Note 5 ends up being better, the DROID TURBO 2's pictures won't suck.

    I agree... my Note 5 is the only phone that I know of that can come close to the photos taken by my lady friend's new iPhone 6s Plus(Pink). If her iPhone scores 100, then my Note 5 is about a 90. (but drops to maybe 85 in dark restaurant no-flash scenes)

    Comparing spec pages, the Turbo 2 is exactly the same camera and features as what is on the Moto X Pure. So you should be able to find plenty of info on it.

    For me personally, that camera performs well enough that I could choose either device strictly based on other factors.

    According to the DXo site, the T2 camera has an overall score of 84. The Note 5 is not tested; the Note 4 got an 83; the Galaxy S6 Edge got a 86.

    Motorola Droid Turbo 2 Mobile review: Challenging for the top - DxOMark

    One thing about the Samsung cameras is the software oversaturates the colors just a tad. Hard to tell if all you are looking at is Samsung photos, but put Samsung photos next to a Nexus, an Apple, an LG, or a Sony camera and they look a bit too vibrant. There also seems to be a slight yellow-tan tint to Samsung's shots.

    Closed loop processing and whatever phase detect auto focussing is should help.

    The pictures in that review look a little "soft" on edges, but overall are pretty nice. It's amazing how far smartphone cameras have come, and no wonder the point-and-shoot camera market is dying.
