      S23 ultra is a far better phone than iphone 14 pro..i realise a biased tone in the reviewers narration towards the iPhone. I don't think iphone holds any better at the current moment against s23

      The different android flagships phone from iphone are video smooth n stabilization, and now its slighly the same, thinking move to s23u (or maybe huawei 60 mate pro )

    I think Samsung has stuck the right spots this time! Bigger sensors, bigger stability, and better processing together are bringing a lot of difference. Honestly, I think Samsung is finally working the iPhone here and has inched it out with a win this time!

    To me, image/video details is more important than anything else. Saturation, shadows, brightness...etc... you can easily adjust those with software editing or software updates, but if your image/video is blur and not sharp, there's nothing you can do about it.

    • Sonny Cruz
      Sonny Cruz Month ago

      @Nurul Holil I'm thinking the S23U is better when it comes to image detail in both photos and video, which is surprising. And one of the main reasons I have one on pre-order. 🙂 I hope it doesn't disappoint.

    • Nurul Holil

    • VerveTech
      VerveTech Month ago +9

      Yeah. That's exactly what I told others. Colors can be adjusted and most content creators do color correction using their video editing apps anyway so the detail, less lens flares, noise reduction of the S23U is more important than anything else.

      @liquidalloy true and they should work on having the same colors on all lenses, but I guess it kinda compensates with portrait video and steady video on the S23U in night time.

  • Eruptic
    Eruptic Month ago +475

    It honestly looks incredible. I was honestly getting ready for another S21,S22 dissapointment in the video department but the processing power and new sensors and ois system really improved video. I've never seen you crop in a night time video and the Samsung phone having the better quality and even noise reduction. The saturation should be an easy fix and knowing Samsung they will address it immediately.

    Wow, I didn't expect the S23 Ultra to be this competitive with the iPhone 14 Pro when it comes to video, especially at night. Although not in every single case, I feel like this video shows the S23U to be superior in most of the scenarios tested. Looking forward to mine arriving next week!

      @RogueRemus are you talking about the times when samsung didn't even introduced OneUi? And the downgrade of camera performance of note 9 may be because of the addition of new features which the device isn't capable of.

    So far so good with the 23 Ultra. Outside of the richer colours/contrast in the night videos it's very good. I think to the regular person on the street they'd even prefer that look over the more neutral colours on the iPhone. Patiently waiting for the full camera test.

      I don’t know why he said the iPhone looked so great. It doesn’t.There’s a lot of grainy iPhone videos. He totally ignored it saying how impressed he was with the iPhones quality, which it was not good. He is biased and it shows. People just need to start going to local retailers and testing phones themselves.

Samsung has just spoiled his consumers with more than enough features that they could have rolled out in 2 decades. Im sure smart phones wouldn't have been this advanced if not for samsung. They keep innovating and pushing others to do more.

    • SimplCup
      SimplCup Month ago +3

      @Davout It's not failure if it makes the video look better. And i don't understand what red filter people are talking about, Samsung just looks more saturated and contrasted which in my opinion makes the video look better. It looks red because there are many red things in the scene and they are nicely colored on Samsung, when the image on Iphone looks a bit dull and too bright. Of course it's probably not how it looked in real life, but this video is about comparing the whole camera system of Samsung and Iphone, including AI possibilities of their cpus. If you don't like it, then there's switch off for AI functions in settings. Or you can shoot in pro mode, or use expert RAW to shoot videos without auto-processing.

    • Davout
      Davout Month ago

      @SimplCup Yes this better atmo is due to Samsung completely and utterly failing to reproduce colors correctly. It literally put a red filter and called it

    • SimplCup
      SimplCup Month ago +5

      @Davout Iphone had a lot more noise in darker areas than the Samsung, you can clearly see it when the author of this video shows the close up of the sky in night mode. Also Iphone for some reason tries to overbrighten (i hope that word exists) the video, so it looks a bit strange, the samsung's video looks a bit more natural and has better atmosphere in it. Aside from that, we also should consider that the author compared Samsung's 8k 30 fps video with Iphone's 4k 30 fps video in night light, 8k is pretty hard to render, so Samsung might do a little bit better with 4k and FULL HD. In my opinion Samsung surpassed Iphone in video.

      @Tofu well i saw other vídeos and pics at night and didnt see that noise, lets see when he really launch and we will had a lot of vídeos and comparisions, its a lot of avance, but i'm thinking if i really gonna upgrade my s22u, i was expecting at least a better fast charge. The cameras was outstanding, the processor os my its good enough for now. I think its better wait at least one more year to change the phone. Here in Brazil its soooo expensive, like 6 months of minimum payment

    Woah, the S23 has incredible video especially at night: better stabilization, better portrait mode, better lens flare control, and better detail!! I'm feeling very good about switching from iphone to the S23 Ultra! Thanks for sharing this comparison!

    Definitely impressed. S23 Ultra looks 🔥🔥🔥. They both are great but I already knew Iphone had some of the Best video. Pics I would go with Ultra and pixel last couple years. But now Ultra Video is comparable to the best and maybe the new Best. 🤔 great video

    I am an iphone 14 pro user, and i do know samsung is a big competitor but still lacks behind, the 14 pro had no camera updates so far, and i do know that that 48mp sensor has some potential but it's good to see that samsung is getting better and better. Amazing video danny.

    Samsung has many video image setting options that make it look more professional. You just need to know how to adjust the colors. There are many configuration options. After saving the video, there is a setting that increases the sharpness of Samsung's native video.

      Yes, I agree for professionals. Most average consumer would prefer a point, click, and shoot type of camera phone experience with the optimization and tweaks baked in the camera. The S23 Ultra is a beast and probably the best video camera on the android side

    in Over All feature with 4K, iphone is wining natural and auto focus like mirrorless lens camera feeling is just wow. However, although the contrast could be annoying, 8k on s23 is very tempting feature for the semi-pro videographers including myself. I hope Adobe Lightroom and Premier handle the over contrast on S23.

    The S23 Ultra just looks a little better to me, plus I noticed the videos had better (higher) dynamic range. That's not to say the video from the 14pro plus was bad. It was good too. I know this is very subjective but I also kinda prefer the portrait video from Samsung.

    S23 Ultra’s colors look very accurate to real life and a pro camera. Apple always with that very unnatural tomato orange hue which some people simply die for idk why. Also the lense flare at night is a nightmare in iPhones. I so regret spending 1400€ in 13PM last year..

    S23 ultra is the first phone to be at the same level of video quality as iphone, sometimes even better. Still the cinematic mode is better on iphone, but finally an Android user has a good phone to buy. Switching between lenses in video is finally smooth, but still not so smooth as iphone. But I am really amazed of the pictures and video quality.

  • PeanutButterKeys

    I personally love the Samsungs video. Cause what I'm used to with the Samsung phones I've had, the videos look far too bright in low light, making me want to use the pro video mode so it looks more life-like and less like a "phone camera". To me, especially compared to the 8k on the Samsung, the iPhone was too bright in a lot of the dark scenarios, especially that last one with the screen.
    Also, a personal thing for sure, the red tone at night looks nice cause I generally dislike a yellow tone in my photos and videos. Definitely seems like a worthy upgrade from the Note 20 Ultra!

    I honestly had given up on videos on Androids! Kind of accepted that I will always have to use pro video mode to capture videos to get a somewhat acceptable quality.

    Thanks Danny, Great Effort. Bringing the 2 kings side by side. Samsung definitely improved and making a decision each is better is very challenging. Image stabilisation, Samsung is King at the moment. It has a mechanical stabilisation if I correct. Colour science, IPhone is King. Low light noise I believe iPhone will be advantage because it has 48MP compared to 200MP from Samsung. Samsung 8K is impressive with the details, therefore it is a different category.
    Happy to see both kings are very good. To us consumers there will be balance in the “force” hahahaha overdose from Star Wars. Have a Great Day Danny and Everyone. Cheers.

    Thank you for the video. A very good first comparison. Impressive how quickly you made rhe video.
    The colors at night are better on iPhone. As you pointed out, it will become better on S23U after updates.
    Almost every single night video clip on iPhone had noticeable lens flares. An absolut deal breaker for me.
    S23U's stabilisation is so much better. Just wondering whether the standard stabilisation of S23U is so good that the super steady is actually no longer needed. A comparison would be good.
    The 8K on Fold4 without cropping is already much better than that on S22U, but S23U takes it at night on a complete new level. Just tested again 8K at night on Fold 4, but no, there is no competition to S23U - just impressive.
    And of course: no pause button and no switching from rear to face camera on iPhone are deal breakers, unless you have time for putting constantly videos together.
