I'm with the general consensus, I don't regret my S8.
In fact I love it (90% of the time) and I didn't think I'd say that about a galaxy again.
The photos tho, I think are fantastic for a mobile phone. I've taken some cracking photos on AUTO MODE, and they look great, no matter if late at night with just the lamp as light source, or outside during the day.
This is Molly my cat, taken at night on auto with no flash.
Molly in a bag, using the auto flash feature, so no bright spots/glare
Yes, the real me without effects! Taken in auto mode selfie, as I go for my 2nd op in under a week... 6 weeks.later, still having the dressing changed every day.
The beautiful fiancée, Jane and me. Look how well it's captured the colour in the brollies.
I think, too many compare phone cameras to.proper cameras, and you can't. No more so, than a point n shoot party camera, can be compared to a proper DSLR.
Unless your a pro (I did a B-Tech photography diploma back in 1990) and getting paid for taking photos, then, they are very good!
