Best smartphone camera photos #69
We're back with the 69th post in our special photographic-centric series where we present you with a number of awesome images taken by... well, you (and your cell phones).
So, which picture did you like most last time? The answer is Philip Am Guay's photo, taken with the Sony Xperia S. And a pretty well-deserved first place it is, we should say!
Of course, there are many other incredible images left to be seen. Let's continue with another set of 10 pics, each of which can easily convince even the most professionally-inclined photographer that cell phones are more than a toy in the camera department.
Please note that if your own awesome image is not included here, this doesn't mean that it won't end up on the site. We simply might not have gotten to it yet! So, we urge you to continue following us, as we'll be publishing more of these truly great photos in the following days and weeks.
PLEASE NOTE THAT WE HAVE A NEW EMAIL ADDRESS FOR YOUR SUBMISSIONS:
In order to not miss on all the glory, you also have to mention your name/nickname, as well as the phone you used to take the shots. A nice additional piece of info would be a name or a short description for the image.
With that, we now leave you with our 69th set of favorite photos...

My god, those iPhone photos are so oversaturated, especially number 8.

It's your lumia 920 that takes washed-out pictures.

Number 8 seems edited, too much contrast for a picture straight from the phone.
24. EXkurogane (Posts: 863; Member since: 07 Mar 2013)
Contrast and saturation level can be adjusted on the phone's settings itself, not necessarily done by post processing. But i agree it looks way unnatural.

the contest has been dominate dby Nokia:)
I like the fourth one

I like the shots by N8.
They're detailed and well saturated but i voted for 10 because of the composition with respect to the camera-phone in mind.

Yep. Same thing for me. Like the Nokia N8 shots, but went with 10 because it did a very respectable job with colors and exposure, and without much noise.

Phone arena should stop posting the device name that is used to capture the photos.. so fanboys wont chose their brand...
they should reveal it when the winner is announced ..

I agree, but seriously, even if they remove the names of the phones, you will still recognize the first picture...

Wow Boracay! It's more fun here in the Philippines! And to my friend Rem, nice shot!

Im not really a fan of any of these photos.

comparing lumia 920, IPHONE 5, N8 to a old smartphone xperia ray in terms of camera?!! wat the F*ck!!! xperia ray was an old device, maybe compare all phones to xperia Z

I don't see anything wrong with comparing recent flagships with 3 year old phones, wouldn't you be proud of owning something years old but would still be "relevant" in today's standard even just for its camera? Anyway, I still respect your opinion. :P Btw, I did send those pictures (9 and 10) taken by my "old" Xperia, all in auto mode. :)
