Sony Xperia 1 vs Galaxy S10 Plus Camera Test Comparison

by birtanpublished on September 3, 2020

What's up guys saf here on supersaf tv and welcome to another supersaf style camera comparison this time between the sony xperia 1 and the samsung galaxy s10 plus the most requested on the channel recently so a thumbs up for that would

Be appreciated in the usual format we'll be looking at front rear facing cameras images video low light all the good stuff and right now we're starting off with

The front-facing cameras uh we are filming at 4k on the s10 plus which is capable of we are at 1080p on the xperia one so you can have a look got a lot of light coming from the

Background so this should test out the dynamic range quite well now before we test out stabilization we are going to switch to 1080p to make it fair on both devices right

Now at 1080p from both devices also i forgot to say look out for the audio icon so you'll know which device you it is coming from let's go ahead and initially start with a walk

Now let's go ahead and run now we've switched the rear facing cameras we're filming at 4k uh let's go ahead and test out the stabilization

Right now what we'll do is uh see the different angles of view so we'll try to zoom into those ducks there uh both devices can do up to two times optical zoom and let's see if we can go into the wide

Angle as well right so we can't actually go on to the ultra wide with the xperia one that's an option that's not available unfortunately uh we can film with ultra wide you can

See that we are getting a lot more into our shots on the s10 plus that's interesting we've just switched to 1080p on both devices and this is just to test out the

Stabilization stabilization is usually better at 1080. now just testing the autofocus on the xperia one it's okay not super fast

Same test on the s10 plus and it's noticeably faster that was the video now before we move on to images let's have a quick look at what we're working with here for the rear facing cameras we have a

Very similar triple rear-facing camera setup with a primary camera a telephoto camera that's going to give us two times optical zoom as well as an ultra wide now the s10 plus does have a slightly higher

Resolution for the ultra wide and the primary camera also has a variable aperture where it's going to switch depending on the light in your scene and for the front facing cameras the s10

Plus does have two front facing cameras the secondary camera is gonna help with depth information for the selfie portrait mode now all images that you see have been taken on automatic and

That is to keep things as fair as possible they do both have pro modes which we'll talk about a little bit later starting off with some images outdoors of these flowers both doing really good

Overall lots of detail especially if you look towards the middle of this flower the s10 plus a little bit more vibrant i would say if you look at those greens but overall both are doing a good job

Now i did have to tap the focus on the xperia one and that's because it just would not focus on the flower automatically so i did have to tap to do that just to mention that there and keep

Things fair now moving on here's an outdoor wide shot we are shooting into direct sunlight so looking at the dynamic range i do once again think that the s10 plus is slightly better you do have more

Details in those shadows uh once again a little bit more vibrant you may or may not prefer that now testing up the ultra wide and there is a big difference between these two images firstly sn plus

Much better dynamic range if you look towards the shadow areas the s10 plus has much better maintain those shadows once again it is a lot more vibrant compared to the xperia one and the xperia one is slightly wider

Compared to the s10 plus if you look towards the bottom we actually got the side of my finger in as well so it is very very wide which you might like now i wanted to test out the optical zoom so i went in

Front of this sign to see how close we could get to it uh here on the primary camera once again dynamic range easily goes to the s10 plus there's a lot of blown out clouds on the xperia

One and if we do use the telephoto camera i think in terms of zoom both are on par but once again dynamic range the s10 plus wins here the xperia one is blowing out those

Highlights in those clouds right now testing out the portrait mode on both devices here both seem to be doing a decent job but the s10 plus is definitely better if you look towards my glasses those edges have been maintained

Better as well as the area in between my arm and the dynamic range once again is better on the samsung if you look towards the background you can still see some of that blue in the sky whereas that has

Been blown out on the sony now i was wearing a cap in this picture which would probably make it a little bit easier to cut around so i thought i'll take it off and here in this image you can see that

The sony is really struggling my hair is now all a blur um it's actually now missed out a lot of chunks in between my arms whereas the samsung is doing much better here and i thought i'd do one

Last test for portrait mode and again it's obvious here that dynamic range better on the s10 plus and edge detection so much better the xperia seems to have completely ignored the section in between my arms

Whereas the samsung has taken care of that and around my face and ears as well the sony has really struggled whereas the samsung has done a much better job so when it comes to portrait mode

Uh the samsung clearly winning here right now i thought i'd go into some more challenging lighting situations so here is a chocolate fudge cake which was absolutely delicious and the s10 plus maintaining a lot more

Detail in those shadows uh it has become very very dark towards that chocolate cake area on the sony and then i went and took a picture of this light sony has blown it out so dynamic range

Really does not seem to be a point on the sony uh the samsung it's actually exposed it very very well moving on to low light so here's a shot that i took on auto on both devices and the samsung much

Brighter has maintained a lot more detail in those darker areas and it doesn't stop there because on the s10 plus if you've got the exynos version anyway

The new update does allow night mode which lets in a lot more light and here you can see that it's night and day difference uh the samsung looks like it's almost been taken in daylight which is very

Interesting went out took another shot in low light uh here once again the s10 plus doing so much better the xperia one is struggling to even keep focus on this sign whereas the s10 plus

Has absolutely no problem once again if you do use the night mode on the s10 plus we're gonna get a much brighter image uh final test in low light uh s10 plus again

Much better the xperia one has a bit of a green tint to it and it's not as bright as the s10 plus and once again if you do use that night mode then it really does brighten up the

Image quite a bit and it's a much much better image compared to the xperia one right now let's have a look at some selfies so this is a selfie taken in good light both actually doing a really good job the xperia one is

Slightly wider compared to the s10 plus but generally speaking i like the colors on both of these the sharpness is also on point of both of these so i would call this one a bit of a draw now i wanted to test that dynamic range

So i went in front of the sunlight and here the sony is actually doing a better job it's done a good job of balancing the foreground as well as the background and everything is well exposed whereas the s10 plus is struggling a

Little bit although the background seems to be well exposed i am very very dark here in the foreground now testing out some portrait selfies uh the xperia one is struggling a lot here firstly the

Dynamic range that we talked about in the previous shot has completely gone out the window here and the sky is now overexposed and the edge detection is very very bad towards my jacket

As well as my face and i know a lot of you guys are going to say it's because of the sunglasses that this has happened but the s10 plus has done a great job edge detection is on point yes that's

Going to be partly thanks to that secondary front-facing camera but dynamic range as well is on point it's not blown anything out like the xperia 1 has now just to make things fair i did take my

Sunglasses off and i took this shot here once again the s10 plus doing much better here the xperia one struggling with dynamic range it looks like as soon as you put on that portrait selfie then hdr

Is just non-existent and the edge detection is also really bad if you look towards my arm you can see that there's lots of defects my ear is blood and it's just nowhere near as good as what we've got

In the s10 plus now some low light selfies uh the s9 plus is a little bit brighter uh the xperia one it's got a bit of a tint to it it's uh gone a bit too warm for my liking so i do prefer the s10

Plus here however if you do use the front-facing flash then i do prefer the xperia one uh the sn plus does have more noise and it has washed things out a little bit and uh there we have it guys

Um i don't know what to say yeah you guys know that i'm completely honest and unbiased in my videos and i have to be completely honest with the xperia one and say that i'm very disappointed with the results you guys

Saw all of the results i've also spoken to a lot of my youtuber friends who've been using the xperia one and they've had a very very similar experience i mean if you look at all of the

Different tests the s100 plus just performed better whether that was dynamic range low light portrait mode video from the front as well as the rear-facing cameras i think the only area

Where the xperia one was better was when it came to dynamic range from the front-facing camera for regular shots not portrait mode shots just regular shots now both devices

Do support hdr video i couldn't do that for this test because the rest of the video isn't shot in hdr and you'd need an hdr display for it too and the sony does have manual control over video using the

Cinema pro app this is something that you don't have available on the s10 plus so if you are somebody who wants to manually go and configure things then the sony might be an interesting option

For you but when it comes to shooting the camera as it is which most people do then the s10 plus is the clear winner here now as i was saying i did have lots of hopes for the xperia one but it seems like sony keep

Making the same mistakes over and over again they actually make amazing hardware if you look at the s10 plus if you look at the iphone 10s max if you look at any flagship smartphone out there

It's most likely going to be using a sony sensor sony make the best sensors out there they also make amazing cameras i use the sony a7 iii on a regular basis but hardware is just half of the picture you

Do need to have good software processing to go along with it google is the perfect example look at the google pixels they might have just regular hardware but when it

Comes to the software processing they do an amazing amazing job and this is where the sony xperia one is definitely failing maybe more than what we had in previous years so the sony xperia team if you're

Watching this then please improve the software processing on your devices this is something that so many of the manufacturers are doing really well now look at the s10 plus look at the iphone x max look at the google

Pixels have a look at what all of these other guys are doing and try to also bring that to your xperia devices but as it stands right now

Uh i can't recommend the xperia one based on its cameras uh maybe we'll see some improvements with software we'll have to wait and see but right now um i'm pretty disappointed to be honest

That's what i think anyway what do you guys think definitely drop me a comment below and let me know your thoughts uh if you want to see lots of images from lots of different devices then do give me a follow on instagram
