A drop of water adds macro depth to your iPhone's camera
- Larger, rounder droplets lead to higher magnification, and as the droplet evaporates and shrinks magnification decreases.
- The liquid lens is jiggly and sensitive to vibrations. The phone should be placed on a stable platform for maximum clarity.

"Amazing" camera? Sure it's good, but hardly amazing. It's no Nokia 808 PureView, which can be considered "amazing". That being said, neat idea and execution using fluid dynamics to get a different image

Well, iPhone 4S camera is amazing, especially for its small size. Nokia 808's camera however, is from other world :)

PureView doesn't fall into the same category as any other phone camera. It should be compared to professional cameras. For a phone the 8MP camera on the iPhone 4S is a very clean and color temp accurate camera.

And of course the HTC Amaze camera in my opinion takes better photos than both iphone 4 and 4S

LOL why does it sound like Phone Arena is desperately trying to be on Apple's side all the time? It's just a phone and doesn't have an "amazing" camera. My four year old Nokia N82 performs way better.
There's no point in adding water on any lens in any camera in the world. That just ruins the device, period. You paid hundreds of dollars for it and you want to put water on it?
OH WAIT! I got it! Adding water "blurs" most of the image.. which means it hides the noise which all iPhone pics have! Ahh.. yes, very useful. Except more crap on flickr from now on.

i'm glad they are trying to even out the field on this site... it needs more apple users... its very unbalanced in the comment sections of each article

They should just change it from Phonearena.com to iPhonearena.com...
This site is beginning to be as impartial as Fox news.

The fact that you enjoy all those pictures you're taking of yourself is not because the camera is good, in fact it is the diminished quality of the shots that's making your ugly mug a bit blurred and therefore more appealing :)

Every time there is an article about an apple device on this website, tons of jealous d-bags post hate towards the device. Apple is ahead, by far, of all the competition. Nokia, Android, windows - whatever - all of these companies wish when it comes to mobile devices. iPhone by far smashes all other phones out there. Go ahead and come out with all the quad core madness. It doesn't matter, they will still glitch, lag, hesitate, hiccup and be unoptimized. You don't have to use the iphone, but don't be jealous because your POS doesn't perform to spec! Ha! Get off the apple articles! Go post on your laggy devices!! Haha!

"iPhone by far smashes all other phones out there",
Made out of glass? I don't think the other phones need to bother, the stupid owner will probably drop it and smash it to bits easily.
