View Full Version : Mobile phone cameras
Whilst I don't always have my camera with me, I do generally have my phone. Since I have to replace it, does anyone know which mobile phone has the best camera?

Hi and welcome.
The latest 'smart phone' manufactures have all upgraded their phones with pretty decent cameras.
Start here Clicky (http://www.whatdigitalcamera.com/equipment/reviews/1/camera-phones.html) for WDCs reviews.
Look at the latest HTC One X, Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Sony Experia S which has a 12mp camera. Clicky (http://www.gsmarena.com/)
And don't forget. Post processing is an important part of photography and should be used to sharpen and enhance pictures taken with your camera phone to get the best out of it. If you don't have an imaging editor, then use the one in my signature below. There are 32 video tutorials (http://ictpublish.com/pixlr/) to get you started. The most useful is the Adjusting levels (http://ictpublish.com/pixlr/Videoes/06_Levels/06_Levels.html) and for even more adjustment. The Curves tool (http://ictpublish.com/pixlr/Videoes/07_Curves/07_Curves.html) is a must (it's my favourite all-in-one adjuster). My Resize-Crop-Sharpen tutorial below, will get your pics ready for the internet or whatever :cool:

Of the cameraphones we've tested here at WDC, the iPhone 4S has come out on top - the 8MP camera in the iPhone 4S is very good, and will definitely give a lot of compacts a stiff test. Interestingly, in a blind test, it was a close run thing with Canon's excellent PowerShot S100. While that has the luxury of a zoom lens, the plethora of Apps available and the ability to upload to social networking sites works in the iPhone's favour.
That said, we're in the middle of testing Nokia's new 808 PureView with a 41MP camera. Keep an eye out for a full review very soon.
