Best smartphone camera photos #84

Posted: , by PhoneArena Team

Last time's winner - Akur - HTC OneBali, Indonesia

Last time's winner - Akur - HTC One
Bali, Indonesia


We're back with the 84th 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 Akur's photo, taken with the HTC One. 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.

We'd also like to remind you that you can continue submitting your cool cell phone pics to the following email address:


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 84th set of favorite photos...

Number 8 looks like a very beautiful place, but the first one is very well taken, so I voted for #1.

PA I don't want to make you look bad but where is my photo I sent, it's been more then six months now and I haven't seen anything yet and don't tell that that I probably missed a week which I haven't.

How funny that the "sub par" "mediocre" camera actually won...

This is not about the camera, but about how the photographer managed to capture the beauty into the photo.

My point still stands, the ones who call it a mediocre and sub par camera just can't use it, yes it has limited detail, but it more than makes up for it in less than ideal lighting conditions, i have enjoyed every moment with this camera because the shutter is insane, you can capture kids moving indoors which even my CSC has trouble with.

A good camera allows the photographer to take good picture, but a good photographer can take good picture with any camera.

This "contest" is more to testing the photographer skills rather than the camera used, and they included the smartphone just to make it more relevant.

Also, these scenic photos are all of different environments and are shot under different levels of lighting conditions. It really depends on what subjective beauty you like the most, rather than the capability of the camera phones that took them.

Just goes to show all of you that the HTC-1 can take stunning photos if you know how to set up and use all the features of the camera ,,but I guess since it's not a Sammy product you lame thinking people don't know how to do that or your just lazy ,,my guess is both

Phonearena's photo gallery load damn slow on my connection. It's slow but other sites loads even HQ photos faster than PA.
