Samsung has posted a series of new ads touting the Galaxy S21 Ultra camera as better than the camera on the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
In a couple of new ads, Samsung tries to embarrass the iPhone for its limited zoom ability, showing that the Galaxy S21 Ultra, which features a 100x zoom, is capable of taking much better pictures, even of the moon in total darkness.
“Your phone upgrade shouldn’t be a downgrade,” Samsung says, obviously suggesting that if you’re getting an iPhone 12, you’re actually missing out on the upgraded camera capabilities of the new Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G.
The first spot, coming in at just 15 seconds long, highlights the Samsung flagship’s Space Zoom feature. Both phones are pointed at and zoom in on the moon, but the Galaxy S21 Ultra is shown to reach further than the iPhone 12 Pro Max. Samsung’s intent on driving home the Ultra’s 100x digital zoom capabilities versus the iPhone’s 12x digital reach.
Samsung’s second clip also takes aim at the iPhone 12 Pro Max’s shooters with a toasted cheese sandwich as the subject. It pits the Galaxy S21 Ultra’s 108MP shooter against the iPhone’s 12MP camera. Samsung implies its sensor’s higher megapixel count results in a more detailed image.
Indeed, the Galaxy S21 Ultra is a monster phone when it comes to camera capabilities. The device is equipped with new-gen sensors, starting with a 108MP main camera that allows you to take stunning photos with impressive sharpness and color quality.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra features a wide array of camera features, including a 108MP main camera, a 12MP ultra-wide lens, and a telephoto lens. The 100x zoom featured in the Galaxy S21 Ultra is, however, only digital. Compared to optical zoom, the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max features up to 2.5x zoom-in, while the Galaxy offers up to 3x.
