    selective focus (took a bit to get to work right, gotta make sure you are close to the object and far from the background, thought not much different than spot-focusing on the target anyway.)

    ummmmmm so i took some good light outdoors pics, and i'm absolutley shocked as to how bad they are compared to my G2.

    every sample shot i saw looked better than my G2, and then I get my hands on it, and it's just awful. on my black truck in perfect lighting, noise reduction went amuck and the entire truck looked blotchy and watercolorry. i can't believe how bad this camera from my initial testing. i'm getting furious that i spent full price on it.

    like wtf is that? why is noise-reduction going crazy? the lighting was fine; the iso was 400. i don't get it. i'm doing side by sides to my G2 rgiht now, and the G2 is blowing it away.

    Just a single and easy question, did you remove the protective plastic on the camera lens? Just asking, that was a common mistake on the S4 and Samsung just did the same with the S5 so you will see a LOT of users complaining. If you don't know what I'm talking about, just pay a close attention to the camera and you will see a rounded protective plastic in there, just get some Transparent tape, rub it a little, and then peel it off. If you do know what I'm taking about it, then sorry, just double checking the basic stuff.

    indeed i did. that was the first thing i did. i know all too well of camera plastic lol..s4, and the blue ring around the G2.

    in the end, i've decided the S5 wasn't for me, which in all honesty is quite disappointing as i've waited weeks for it, just to get it and return it 7 hours later.

    the camera just wasn't up to par with my G2 (which I guess it takes you getting something worse to make you realize that what you had actually wasn't all that bad) and the body-shifting/creaking issues that plauged almost every Samsung phone i've purchased...just wasn't worth the annoyances and headache for me in the end.

    i will say the touchwiz redesign was incredibly nice, though...but for now, it's back to my G2. maybe I'll get a G3 when it comes out, who knows.

    best of luck to ya all!

    The top picture looks better. The colors are way off on the bottom picture. Which is which?

    Also, don't upload through tapas all and ask about image details. It butchers them. Utilize Flickr, OneDrive, or Dropbox ... something better (yes it is more work lol).

    I cannot comment on details in super compressed images.

    Btw not supper happy qith the camera quality. The nokia icon is superior in every aspect but the 4k video looks good in the right light. Its limited to 5 minute videos though.

    If anyone is having camera quality issues make sure you look close at the lens, there is a thin piece of plasic on it you need to remove.

    First thing I did ! Im a photographer so I guess I critique things a little rough. At my disposal though I have a nokia icon galaxy s4 and note 2 and 3. After testing them the icon seemed like hands down the best camera. Video is not as good ad the s5. But the s5 in 4k is limited to 5 minutes. The s5 is nice but im still leaning towards the z2 if it comes. If not I will stick with the s5

    I absolutely love the cat picture and the one of the flower with the blurred background (I assume you used selective focus). Nice work!

    I think the bottom pic looks better. You can see the difference especially when looking at the reflection of the lamp on the PS4. There just appears to be more detail to me. Without seeing the original scene it's hard to comment on the color accuracy (the black looks black), but you tell us which one looks like the actual wood grain. If you had just uploaded the top image (the one from the S5) I would have said that it looked pretty good. It's only side-by-side with something else that you can tell the difference I think.

    I think you already know the answer to your question. If not, the top one is from the S5, since it takes pics in a native 16:9 aspect ratio.

    I agree about Tapa compressing images, but if they are both done through Tapa and you can see a difference that difference should also be there at full resolution.

    I asked so that means I didn't know. Many phones come with the highest 16:9 setting enabled by default. The Note 3 came that way, and so did the Galaxy S3 I had IIRC. I believe the S4 also came with a similar default setting.

    Compression can affect different images differently, even when run through the same program. Depends on what data is in the image and how the compression algorithm handles it. Running them through the same program doesn't mean the results are equally affected towards the end image :-)

    These all look great! Some people think they're gimmicks, but I like the selectable focus feature.

    fwiw, I had selective focus on and also spot focus, I tapped the flower to focus and got basically the same picture as I did when it processed it through the selective focus.

    The only thing that's bothering me is the S3 had a macro setting whereas I can't seem to get the S5 to focus from as close.
