A new camera phone champion hits the market (the Samsung Galaxy S9), and it’s time for another super-detailed comparison. All the photos here (bar one) are deliberately shown in low light. My aim here was to push the optics and image processing of the three smartphone cameras to the limit – every phone camera takes a good snap in bright sunlight, but they all struggle once light gets low. Or do they?
Portrait mode is that fantastic feature exclusive to your iPhone 7 Plus (with iOS 10.1 and up) that blurs the background in photos. It imitates a nice DSLR bokeh effect seen in professional photography. It’s done using a combination of the two lenses on the back of your iPhone 7 plus some software trickery to stitch the layers of depth together.
Live Photos might seem like a trivial feature but for me, they’re close to my heart. 3D Touch and Touch ID 2 in iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are great additions. But Live Photos can make people smile. Quite literally. I’ve had multiple experiences where I’ve taken photos with someone, showed them the photo, then the Live Photo and I’ve seen a big ol’ smile appear on their face. And isn’t that why we like Apple products after all? For their ability to make people smile.

While your iPhone camera won’t match up with something like this, it is more than adequate for taking great photos. And if you want to take better photos than the average iPhone photographer, these 11 tips will help you become an iPhone camera pro.
We all know the iPhone is capable of shooting incredible photos — it’s one of the best smartphone cameras available — and every year some of the best are highlighted by the iPhone Photography Awards, or IPPAWARDS. Here are this year’s stunning picks.
Whether you are uploading videos to YouTube, Vine, or Instagram, your iPhone camera is there to capture the moment. While recording a video is a simple as pointing the camera on yourself or the at the action, you can’t really do both easily. If you are at a concert or at a game recording the action, it would be great to record what you see and how you react to it. That’s what Twicer sets out to do.
Instagram is one of the world’s most popular photo sharing applications, yet it has been known for lacking some customization features. While it is full of filters and photo manipulation tools, it sorely lacked the function to splice photos together or create epic collages. So, to answer these needs, Instagram recently launched Layout and I am going to show you 10 new ways Layout can improve your Instagram game.
The iPhone 6 has a lot of great features, and one of them is slow motion video capture at 240 fps. How people take advantage of that, though, is the truly remarkable thing.
