Our friends at PCWorld have put together a detailed comparison (they use number ratings and all that junk) of the Apple iPhone 4S’ camera up against the Samsung Galaxy S II’s. The former is a 8 megapixel camera with 720p HD video while the latter is an 8 megapixel camera with 1080p video. Both boast some of the highest quality small sensors in smartphones today.

PCWorld came to the conclusion that the Samsung Galaxy S II only slightly edged Apple’s iPhone 4S overall, giving Samsung an insurmountable lead in the video recording department. Samsung received “very good” scores for most of their still image tests.

In my review, I praised the camera sensor for its outstanding performance up against offerings from HTC and Motorola. I loved video capture, too, as I couldn’t get over how smooth both recording and playback of 1080p HD video were.

Having not used an iPhone (ever), I can’t tell you anything about the iPhone 4S’ camera from personal experience, but one thing’s clear based on the sample shots I’ve seen so far – the Galaxy S II is no slouch. Just as “magical” as anything, we’d say. Check out PC World for the full rundown. [Thanks Croak!]
