Landscape Photographer of the Year Matthew Cattell has made 20 photos of British views to mark the launch of the new Samsung Galaxy

Samsung has decided to demonstrate excellent capabilities of its new Galaxy S8 camera. Even if the phone is not completely different from the Galaxy S7 series, its camera is still a fascinating piece of equipment to explore. The advanced 8MP F1.7 Smart autofocus front camera and 12MP F1.7 Dual Pixel rear camera provide the best low-light, zoom and anti-blur photos with enhanced image processing.

However, the way Samsung chose to show the advantages of the camera didn’t really find overall support. The company invited landscape Photographer of the Year Matthew Cattell to capture some of the most breath-taking views of the British Isles on Galaxy S8. The list of 20 greatest views includes the peaks of Snowdonia, the Scottish Highlands, and monolithic Stonehenge among others.

Indeed, Matthew Cattell didn’t have an ultra-expensive dedicated camera for professional photography. All the pictures were made with Samsung Galaxy S8 even if you don’t believe it looking at the photos.
Selected views are also framed in giant Galaxy S8 scale models that measure in at 22 x 9.84 ft (or 7 x 3 m), which will be touring around the top 20 sights throughout April.

Some people were frustrated by the experiment and let’s clear out why. Photos were made in reasonable daylight by the professional photographer who may or may not have benefited from the use of a tripod to complete some of his beautiful long exposures.

To really understand how good Samsung Galaxy S8 camera is, consumers need to see group selfies in dimly lit nightclubs. Or expense receipts on a jittery commuter train. Or a child playing with a pet in the yard. To put it short, ordinary photos that people take every day without considerable preparation or favorable light.

The landscapes are beautiful, but they would be beautiful if taken by practically any mid-range 2016 Android phone’s camera.

As a reminder, Samsung unveiled its 5.8-inch Galaxy S8 and 6.2-inch Galaxy S8+ two weeks ago.

“The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ usher in a new era of smartphone design and fantastic new services, opening up new ways to experience the world,” said DJ Koh, President of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. “The Galaxy S8 and S8+ are our testament to regaining your trust by redefining what’s possible in safety and marks a new milestone in Samsung’s smartphone legacy.”

New Samsung devices seem to represent a new level of functionality and convenience, opening up a galaxy of possibilities, services and apps as well as a stunning Infinity Display for immersive viewing experiences.
