It’s time for the SuperSafStyle camera comparison between OnePlus 9 Pro and the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra.. This is serious. Business. I’m, not even wearing my sunglasses, so I can properly examine all of the images. I’m not actually going to be using this. But you get the point. And we’re doing a slightly different format.. The previous format did get quite long, and a lot of you were asking for something a lot more compact., So that’s what we’ll be aiming to do, but we will be covering all aspects. We’ll, be looking at all of the cameras, including low light, as well as Video. So I’m going to put the specs up on screen.. You can see those. We’re, not interested too much into the specs, but essentially we do have an ultrawide camera on both devices, a primary camera as well as telephoto cameras.. We have one telephoto camera on the OnePlus 9 Pro.. We actually have two telephoto cameras on the S21 Ultra., Okay, that’s out the way. Let’s get to the images.. So we have this massive collaboration with Hasselblad and in the images generally, I noticed that the color science was more natural compared to the more vibrant colors of the S21 Ultra.. So having a look at this picture of some flowers, both are doing really good. But if you look at the greens, they are little bit more vibrant, little bit more punchy on the Samsung versus the more neutral colors on the OnePlus 9 Pro.
. Now this generally comes down to personal preference.. A lot of people actually prefer the punchier colors saves them. Having to edit anything. So yeah now the color science is more noticeable. In this example, my car is a satin black color, but on the S21 Ultra it does have a bit of a blue hint to it. Again Samsung’s color science.. I do prefer the colors on the OnePlus 9 Pro here, but, generally speaking, both of doing a good overall job. Here’s. Another image I think both are doing good. But if we do look towards the shadow details, then the S21 Ultra does seem to be maintaining more details in the shadows compared to the OnePlus, 9 Pro. And here’s another example.. We do have more of a contrasty image on the OnePlus 9 Pro, but in boosting up the contrast, we do have more punchy greens here on the OnePlus 9 Pro., And also some of that shadow detail has been crushed., So I do prefer the S21 Ultra here.. Now for low light images from the primary camera here you can see both are actually doing a really good job. And at first glance the S21 Ultra does seem to be doing better.. But then, if we look towards the grass area, there is a lot of noise and artifacts., Whereas the OnePlus 9 Pro is giving you the overall, cleaner image which I do like. In this example. I think both doing really well the S21 Ultra again more in the shadow areas, but generally I would say this is a bit of a draw.
Another example. Here we’ve got my car and I almost thought I took this from the same camera., So I had to check, but it definitely wasn’t. Both doing very, very well. Now in this shot. This is low light indoors from the primary cameras, the OnePlus 9 Pro immediately. You can see that it’s a brighter image, but I would say that the S21 Ultra is a little bit sharper and it has a little bit less noise compared to the OnePlus 9 Pro. Ultrawide.. So both devices actually have great ultrawide cameras. And, as you can see here, both actually do a really really good job overall.. The S21 Ultra is slightly wider. Now. One thing that OnePlus have been going on about is the fact that they have hardware correction for distortion.. So you shouldn’t get as much distortion.. I can’t say that word distortion towards the sides, but Samsung does this with software. And I really can’t notice any distortion on the Samsung device, even though it is wider., And I particularly took this shot, which had the straight lines for this building and all of the Poles but yeah the S21 Ultra is doing absolutely fine., So I really can’t notice. Much of a benefit for the hardware fix for the distortion. And also the S21 Ultra does once again have better dynamic, range. Check out where the light’s hitting the sign. The S21 Ultra has maintained the details there, whereas the OnePlus 9 Pro has blown some of those out.
. The colors, however, do seem more natural on the OnePlus 9 Pro.. If you look towards the ground, Samsung is making them a little bit more vibrant. Again. This is something that’s just down to personal preference.. You might actually like that.. Now I wanted to test out dynamic range further., So we had the light coming in here from the background and the OnePlus crushing those shadows again, the S21 Ultra giving you a more balanced shot, which I do prefer again. It is wider. This example. If you look towards the light at the back, Samsung has maintained it, whereas the OnePlus has blown those out. And if you look towards the shadow details in the foreground once again, the S21 Ultra doing a better overall job compared to the OnePlus 9 Pro.. So I am preferring the ultrawide camera of the S21 Ultra.. Here is another shots., And if you look towards my hand, the OnePlus 9 Pro has smoothing things out there, whereas the S21 Ultra has kept things sharp.. Now, both ultrawide cameras can double up as macro cameras.. So you can go in super close. And I think both actually do a really good job. Check out this picture of the leaf here.. This is some tree bark again both doing very, very well.. Now, when it comes to low lights from the ultrawide camera, I think both actually do a really good job overall.. Here you can see that both have maintained the shadows as well as the highlights.
. I was using the respective night modes on both devices, but in this shot the OnePlus kind of has this purple hue to it.. I don’t know what’s going on there.. I did try to take this shots multiple times and it would give me the same result with this kind of purple hue, which I do not like., So I do prefer the S21 Ultra here. Okay next up is zoom. Pause, sorry to interrupt guys., Just site Saf. Here wanted to remind you that if you’re enjoying the video then do smash that like button, it really helps out with the YouTube algorithm. And also don’t, forget to subscribe and hit that bell icon. So you don’t miss more content like this. Cheers play.. So from both cameras, you have around three times optical zoom on the first stage. And I actually prefer the S21 Ultra even at that 3.3 times. Zoom. Here is an image side by side.. Now, if we do blow these images up 200, you can see that we do have a better overall image on the S21 Ultra.. There is a lot of noise on the OnePlus 9 Pro. Now the S21 Ultra has 10 times optical zoom.. So if we have a look at 10 times versus 10 times digital zoom on the OnePlus 9 Pro, then the S21 Ultra clearly doing a much better job, and you can also go up to 30 times digital zoom on the OnePlus 9 Pro.. But I mean it’s going to be an easy win for the S21 Ultra thanks to that periscope zoom technology.
. You can actually read all of the texts on here, which you simply cannot do on the OnePlus 9 Pro.. Now you can go all the way up to 100 times, zoom on the S21 Ultra, which is something that I very rarely do.. If you want to read some texts in the distance, like this sure it’s there, but zoom generally, I do prefer on the S21 Ultra. Now let’s have a look at some portraits.. So using the wide angle portrait on both devices they’re, actually both doing pretty decent. In this example, they both have got the area in between my arm, but neither of them are perfect.. The OnePlus has kind of blurred the edge of my sunglasses.. The S21 Ultra has bled a bit of my ear. Now. Both of these do have the 2X option. For portraits, but surprisingly, neither of them actually use the dedicated telephoto cameras for portraits., So it’s actually cropping into the main sensor and that results in much softer images, especially on the S21 Ultra.. This is something I’ve talked about many times before and it’s. Also washed me out quite a bit.. The OnePlus 9 Pro is giving you an overall sharper image.. I think it’s doing some post sharpening here, but it’s still quite soft. On my face., It looks like I’ve. Almost got some makeup, on. It’s, very, very smooth on the face., So as detection is good on both but I’m, not a fan of either of these.
Here’s another example. Again both are doing pretty decent from the main camera. But when we do use the 2X camera, then neither are doing great.. I believe the S21 Ultra has better maintained. The colors on my jacket on my clothes. You’ve got more truer, blacks there, but it’s washed my face out., The OnePlus 9 Pro I mean I’m. Looking quite yellow on here, so I don’t think it’s maintained skin tones well but generally in terms of edges they’re doing okay.. Now I did notice a bit of a hit or miss situation when it comes to portraits on the OnePlus 9 Pro.. Sometimes it wouldn’t focus into the subject like this example here. I’m hoping this can be fixed with software updates, something that I do have to display. However. Again, I don’t think neither of these are great for portraits.. I think other smartphones do portraits much better. Right. Moving on to selfies. Now, for me the selfie situation, it was quite an easy pick and it was the S21 Ultra.. I have to give credit to Samsung for really upping their selfie game. This year., You can actually switch off the brightening skin that they’ve been doing for years., So they’ve actually listened and they’ve allowed you to switch this off and look at the skin tones here. The S21 Ultra much more true to life. And also look at my jacket. The blacks are much more true to life compared to the OnePlus 9.
Pro. We’ve also got a sharper image on the S21 Ultra compared to the OnePlus 9 Pro, which has brightened things up and it’s tried to add a bit of pink. To my face, which I do not like so clear win for the S21 Ultra. Here’s another example, once again, the S21 Ultra much more accurate in terms of colors. And it’s, also much sharper. And for portrait mode from the front facing camera in terms of edges, both Actually do a pretty good job overall, but you’ll notice that the S21 Ultra is slightly wider. Again. The colors and the sharpness go to the S21 Ultra. Here’s. Another example edges, I would say, it’s a bit of a draw both doing very well, but the overall better image is the S21 Ultra. For low light selfies. The OnePlus is completely off here. I’m, not sure what’s going on. The S21 Ultra doing a much better job.. Now, with the S21 Ultra, you also have the option of using night mode from the front facing camera., And here you can see that it’s doing a much better job. Now using the front facing flash on both devices, the S21 Ultra does wash things out a little Bit the OnePlus 9 Pro in my opinion is doing better here, but overall for selfies it is the S21 Ultra for me. Right now, let’s have a look at some video., So both devices can film 4K video. And I think generally both do a very, very good Job as you can see.
, I think OnePlus does boost the shadows. A little bit, which does look more pleasing. And OnePlus has definitely improved the video game for them this year.. However, when it comes to stabilization, I did find that the S21 Ultra was more stable. Both of the primary, as well as the ultrawide cameras., Now here’s, something interesting, which I haven’t really heard. Many other reviewers talk, about. The OnePlus 9 Pro can film at 8K, but not only can it film at 8K from the primary camera. It can also do this from the ultrawide camera., The S21 Ultra, although it’s had 8K and previous Samsung devices have also had 8K it’s, not really usable 8K, because it crops in very heavily.. And if you compare this to the OnePlus 9 Pro, I very much prefer. The 8K video coming from the OnePlus 9 Pro. Now check out this example of the ultrawide camera from the OnePlus 9 Pro versus the severely cropped in primary camera of the S21 Ultra when filming 8K. Yeah the OnePlus 9. Pro just gives you a lot more flexibility when shooting 8K, which I really do like. Another new feature that the OnePlus 9 Pro has introduced is 4K at 120 frames a second., And this actually gives you some really good slow motion at 4k. If you do slow down that footage compared to the 4k 60 frames, a second on the S21 Ultra. Now both devices do have 1080p slow low motion as well.
At 240 frames a second., And I actually preferred the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra here, because it gave you a sharper result., The OnePlus 9 Pro when you are at 1080 with slow motion. It does give you quite a soft result. Now for 720p slow motion. The S21 Ultra does give you a short burst at 960 frames a second., But this is, I mean it’s, definitely not usable. It’s, just an absolute mess.. The OnePlus 9 Pro can do up to 480 frames. A second and it’s, not a burst. You can actually film a decent amount and it does give you better results.. I generally wouldn’t use these features unless you wanted something super super slow mo, but I do prefer slow motion on the OnePlus 9 Pro overall. For auto focus, I would say it’s a bit of a draw.. You can see an example here with the OnePlus 9 Pro as well as the S21 Ultra.. I think both of them have pretty good, auto focus. For audio. You can have a listen and tell me what you prefer. What’s up guys Saf here on SuperSafTV.. Welcome to the much awaited camera comparison SuperSafStyle between the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra and the OnePlus 9 Pro. We’ll be testing out all aspects of the cameras front facing rear facing images. Video low lights. Let’s see if the Hassleblad partnership really makes much of a difference. Right front facing cameras. Front facing cameras I’m very disappointed with the OnePlus 9 Pro because it only films at 1080p.
. The S21 Ultra can film at 4K and it can also format up to 60 frames. A second., The OnePlus 9 Pro can only do 1080p at 30 frames. A second and it doesn’t record great footage.. I mean check out this example. You’Ve just got highlights completely blown up in the background it’s just not good.. It also isn’t as wide as the S21 Ultra.. So for the front facing camera video on the OnePlus 9 Pro big thumbs down. For me, it was definitely an afterthought., So that is the more compact SuperSaf style camera comparison.. To conclude, I want to say that OnePlus I want to give them credit. They have definitely improved their cameras.. I know they’re getting a lot of criticism, but I think they kind of brought that upon themselves because of the whole Hassleblad hype, people were expecting OnePlus devices to blow the others out of the water.. That is definitely not the case.. Yes, the OnePlus 9 Pro has brought lots of improvements, but overall, as a package with the front facing camera as well. I would still pick something like the S21 Ultra. Now granted. The S21 Ultra is priced higher, especially in the UK you’re. Looking at around 200 pounds. More compared to the OnePlus 9 Pro. In the US, the S21 Ultra has actually been discounted. And there was a time where it was actually going for 1000 in the US, so that’s only 30. More than what the OnePlus 9 Pro is retailing at.
. So you do have to consider that as well. Now, if you want me to do a detailed comparison about all of the other features of the S21 Ultra versus the OnePlus 9 Pro, definitely let me know down in the comments below..
