Given the fact that some 93 million selfies are taken each day (source), the camera is a key selling point with modern-day smartphones. Up until the last 5-10 years, cellphone cameras were sub-part when compared to standalone point-and-click cameras. This has since changed, however, with smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S5, Google Nexus 5, HTC One (M8), and now the Apple iPhone 6 paving the way with cutting-edge cameras integrated directly into the hardware. Now that Apple has unveiled the iPhone 6, many people are wondering how its camera will compare against the Galaxy S5’s. Samsung went the extra mile with the Galaxy S5’s camera, which is apparent from the first time you snap a photo with it. But Apple also improved its camera on the iPhone 6, opting for a higher megapixel resolution and better all-around technology than the previous iPhone 5. So, which one of these cameras comes out on top as the winner? The Galaxy S5 boasts a 16-megapixel ISOCELL camera with LED flash and 1080p video. The previous Galaxy S4 also had a powerful camera, but it was only a 13-megapixel model. Samsung wanted to build and improve on this foundation by using a 16-megapixel instead….

Will The Samsung Galaxy S5 Feature a 16-Megapixel Camera?

With an expected launch date less than 2 months away, Samsung remains quite regarding their upcoming Galaxy S5’s hardware specs. This has opened the floodgates to dozens of rumors and reportedly “leaked” information, which we frequently discuss here at galaxy5us.com. While we’ve heard plenty of rumors about the Galaxy S5’s processor, battery, metal and plastic shell variations, etc., there hasn’t been much talk about its camera — until now. Earlier this week, a picture emerged from a Flipboard test account which suggests the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5 will sport a massive 16-megapixel rear-facing camera. Brace yourself for this Picasso-esque photo… because here it is! Yes, this is the actual photo posted by the Flipboard user @123fliptest. It probably won’t win any awards for its exceptional quality, but the most intriguing information lies in its exchangeable image file format (or what’s more commonly referred to as EXIF). As some of you may already know, EXIF is hidden data found in image files, and it may include things like shutter speed, exposure compensation, metering system, whether or not flash was used, ISO number, date, time, auxiliary lens and resolution. According to reports, the benchmark tests using this photo revealed a 16-megapixel camera,…

Galaxy S5 to Get Updated Design with Carbon Treated Body?

Let’s get started, shall we? Galaxy S5 to Get Diamond Metal Body To start, it’s been rumored once again that the Galaxy S5 – predecessor to the well-received Galaxy S4 – will feature a huge design change from its predecessor. Apparently, says TrustedReviews.com, Galaxy S5 will indeed feature a metal body, but not just any metal body. In fact, says the rumor, the Galaxy S5 will feature a “diamond metal” metal body that will make it even more scratch, ding and dent resistant than any of the S5’s predecessors have ever been. According to the report, while the Galaxy S5 will not be diamond encrusted, or contain any bits of the precious gem at all. However, the way that the device’s frame and body will be made will make the device just as hard as diamonds are, hence the name “diamond metal.” Apparently, Samsung is in the middle of a research project…
