  4. 21 months delay, and two iterations of phone model later make any comparison a bit moot now, don't you think?
     
  5. are a great timing to discus this; it means I have 2 months to make up my mind if I 'd fancy to pick up a pre-owned phone, since they are usually sold with 24 month plans that I can't afford while saving up for another chunk of photo only gear.
     
  6. From vacation photos taken this summer, I much prefer the files from Iphone 6, 6plus and 6s phones compared with files from the Galaxy S7. I also find that phones with true optical image stabilization have a low light advantage. That being said, it really comes down to do you want an IOS or an Android device? I would also look at the Android device that has the least amount of bloatware.
