Is Samsung’s 200MP camera a genuine upgrade or a gimmick?

One of the few notable additions to the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is the introduction of a colossal 200-megapixel camera, almost double the pixel count of last generation’s 108MP camera. That’s 200,000,000 little pixels of detail in your snaps, but what does that actually mean for your pictures, and is it worth buying into? We’ve taken some snaps to assess the situation.

Before we get into images, it’s worth noting that the Galaxy S23 Ultra takes 12.5MP pictures by default, combining 16 pixels worth of data into one through a technique known as pixel binning. If you want the full 200MP snaps, you’ll have to select the mode in the camera app.
