    Is it normal that I can't tell the difference between outdoor photos taken with the S5 and S6?

    I bought the S6 *ONLY* because it's suppose to have a superior camera. However, I finally got around to doing side-by-side comparison. I put the phones(S5 and S6) next to each other on mounts and took a bunch of pictures on full-auto mode. I copied the photos to a USB drive and played them back on my 55" 4K HDTV. No matter how hard I tried, I could not tell them apart, even when I zoom into the photos.

    For daily uses, I also can't tell the difference between the two phones.(except the S6's screen being a little sharper/brighter) Should I just return the S6?(still have 47 days left to do it)

    It's all up to you. Only you can make that choice. Which one do you like more?

    The key word here is outdoor. The s5 (practically any phone for that matter), will do fine pictures outside.

    Inside is where you will notice a huge difference.
    The s6 is night and day.

    Try taking some shots in low light conditions and the difference should become more apparent.

    I came also from an S5 and loved the camera. However i noticed immediately the superiority of the s6 through:

    1. Faster shutter / Less lag camera interface
    2. Very big difference on low-light conditions
    3. Faster auto focus
    4. Optical image stabilization (Less blurred shots)

    I also noticed that images are more natural outdoors. Try zooming in and observe the sharpness and contrast on edges of an object... S6 looks less processed and more natural.

    No need to return the phone IMO as the S6 is typically the best camera phone as of to date with G4 and iphone 6 on a close call.

    Give it some more time so that you can take pictures in other lighting conditions. At the end of the day, as mentioned above, it's your call.

    Could be you don't have the better camera installed. There are two different ones. Install AIDA64 and check your "devices" and see if you have the Sony camera or the other one...I think it is a Samsung camera.

    Which is the better camera between the two?

    You should not be able to tell the difference between the Samsung and Sony sensors.

    I recognised the difference in quality between my s4 camera and my s6 camera immediately. But then again I never go outside so all of my pictures are taken indoors. Here's a picture I took last night. I took it with no flash and all my lights off. The only light was the light of the tv. Obviously it is going to be blurry but I couldn't get over just how much it picked up in the photo
