Groundbreaking Or Gimmick? Experimenting With The Dual Aperture Of The Galaxy S9

The most interesting thing about the new Galaxy S9 is its dual aperture. Here it is in action:

In theory it's a really great idea. But how useful is it in the real world? 

To find out I shot a few comparisons. One image with an open aperture (1.5), one with a closed aperture (2.4), and a final image where I let the auto-mode choose the aperture.

What do you think? Do you see a notable difference? Let me know on Twitter
