I spent all weekend taking pictures with the new Galaxy S8 and now I never want to go back to my iPhone

Galaxy S8+ camera

I was perfectly happy with my iPhone 6s until the Galaxy S8 came along. 

The Galaxy S8 — Samsung’s latest model of its flagship phone — is brand new, and I got the chance to test the larger S8+ version over the course of a weekend. I knew it was a high-end phone, but I wasn’t expecting it to blow me away and make me pine for the end of my iPhone contract. 

Alas, that’s exactly what happened. 

For the record, I didn’t run the phone through its paces or give it a full camera review, much less a full phone review (for that, click here). I simply used it as I use my current phone, casually snapping photos of my activities throughout the course of a weekend to share with family or post on social media. 

Here are the results from my weekend with the Galaxy S8+.

I started my Saturday grabbing coffee in Tribeca, where I spotted these flowers on the sidewalk. I was immediately impressed with the camera’s macro capabilities. The flowers in the foreground were crisp and in focus, while the rest of the bunch was blurred.

The only thing I didn’t like about the camera, which I first noticed in this photo, was a tinge of sepia, or a brownish, orange-y cast to some of my photos. You’ll see what I mean as the weekend progresses. 

I happened upon One World Trade Center (and another skyscraper under construction) on my walk through Tribeca. While this isn’t the prettiest picture of one of New York’s more famous buildings, I was impressed by how much detail the phone captured — like the reflection of the clouds on the glass — even at a distance.

This geometric, sunlit walkway photographed beautifully.
