Although the Megapixels are lower on the Samsung Galaxy S7 this doesn't mean the camera isn't as good. The Samsung Galaxy S7 has a Dual Pixel camera, meaning each and every one of the pixels on the image sensor has two photodiodes instead of one, meaning the professional-grade Dual Pixel Sensor can focus as quickly and as accurately as you would with your own eyes. This will lead to more bright and clear images with less noise can being taken.
