Hello All ...
I just got my Samsung S7 Edge (G935F) and to my utmost surprise I have got Samsung's own BRITECELL(or whatever they call it) Camera Sensor instead of beloved Sony Sensor ... The same they opted with S6 n S6 Edge and the Sony Sensor pictures were way better than Samsung's ISOCELL Camera Sensor ...
That's pretty strange ... I haven't checked or compared the quality of the photos with the one with Sony Sensor ...
But I'm disappointed ... Sheer Shame .... Samsung does this every time ...

Please share your information here what you people have got ...

What region are you from OP? I installed AIDA64 on the demo units in the Philippines, and they are showing Sony sensors. Hope I get a Sony sensor on my preorder..

That's wierd. My SM-G935F has the Sony sensor according to Aida64...
Phone was purchased in Germany via Amazon.de

That's what Samsung does ... I mean every year ... They give two different sensors in a flagship product costing over 800$ ... And let the users compare them ...
Last year in S6, people posted photos taken from Sony Sensor Camera and Samsung's own ISOCELL Camera and Sony proved to be superior in much of them ...
And I'm expecting the same this year ...
Probably would return my device because of this very reason as the same happened last year with me ...
I mean you can't except it that your Camera has a cheaper Sensor than your friend's fone having same price and specs ...
That's baddddddd Sammy ... leave these tactics please ...

Samsung does these annoying things year after year.....why do they send review and demo units worldwide with superior Sony sensor----simply to fool customers. ......

See it's business. It's not just camera sensor, it's also about RAM, NAND etc., Apple does same, this is done to have enough inventory during high sale period. Most times it's because they can't get enough components of one type. Apple infact goes as far as getting display and SOC from different foundry. Not for first time it happened, and as the nature of business it will continue in future as well.

Note: Samsung never promised we will get IMX260 sensor. As long as both sensors similar job, I see no reason to be concerned about. Would you have complained if it was only Samsung sensor?

Some amount of RAM is always reserved for GPU, also applies for your laptop.

F*** Samsung sensor here as well. What the f samsung? Thinking about switching to a different model now. :rolleyes: Mine's made in Vietnam.

EDIT: Found this comparison by Gsmarena - http://blog.gsmarena.com/samples-comparison-galaxy-s6-s6-edge-sony-samsung-camera-sensors-2/ and in that comparison the ISOCELL sensor pictures look a bit better. Are there any more comparisons available? Just asked my friend if he could check his S7, and if it turns out he got a Sony sensor I'll do a comparison between the two.

EDIT: My fried just replied and his phone is equipped with the IMX260 so I'll post some pics when I have a chance to do a comparison!

    The best combo possible. :)

    S7 Edge + Snapdragon 820 + Sony IMX260.

    Congratulations. :)

    Actually it's the other way around...
    Exynos + BRITECELL is MUCH better.

    1. The Exynos have much better battery life:

    2. The Exynos have BETTER PERFORMANCE in REAL LIFE:

    3. The Britecell sensor looks better, with better auto-WB than Sony's sensor.

    4. All the SD820's S7's have their bootloader LOCKED (unlike the Exynos's S7's), and from the way it looks right now - might actually never even get root, not to mention custom roms.

    5. The SD820's DAC (headphones audio) sucks.

    I got the Sony sensor in the UK and my low light shots are super detailed. And no pink ring that someone was talking about. So far it's as good if not better than my s6 edge+
