One camera in galaxy phones is best than other with two camera!

SAM-SUNG -prescription - race horse- mouth SHUT- head DOWN -run - goal post galaxy 8 ..
shut up ..goget.. head down until starters for galaxy 8 .. SPECULATION ==NO EVALUATION
.

I wish they will use something new though, like their own sensor tech with white pixels or more density. In terms of realistic colors and sharpness its sony's win with their unique sensor that nobody got besides them and thats with just f2 aperture.
But, nothing surprising, if you want to compete in field of better colors, W pixels sensor is useless. Thats why samsung also went for f1.7 in stead of using second camera. Well, they can still use rgbw sensor like lg or sony, it helps a lot, compare X and XZ for example.

Good decision. LG should to the same.

Dual camera is just an useless gimmick. Good OIS and good low light performance is much more important than the dual camera.

If you want wide angle or optical zoom photos, you can buy a cover / case where you can attach the desired lens.

I am happy that samsung sticks with single camera sensor.Dual cameras are completely useless. Pixel XL, for example, shoots much better than icrap7 plus or huawei p9. Hope sammy will put into s8 bigger sensor with bigger pixel size.

Who needs gymnick dual camera setup? Did professional cameras have 2 sensors like a binocular? :D Answer- No.

  • AnonD-39937

Great decision, Samsung, the world needs better sensors with smarter software, not crappy dual-setup.

  • Vhh

I don't really care about dual cam I just want screen 90% of the phone.. I like big screen small phone

Galaxy phones exhibit too much heat and putting a dual camera setup will only creat more heat. Samsung is scared to the bones another Note7 decibel coming so soon.

Don't really care. As long as it will be an improvement over the already amazing camera of the S7, then no real need for two sensors.
