If that 8MP PureView Phase II camera on the Lumia 920 just doesn't cut it for you, then it means you have unrealistic expectations towards smartphones.

It's nice to see an accessory like this for something other than the iPhone. I like the price point as well. I may just have to look into getting one.

I use Thumba Photo Editor, which is pretty full-featured. It may not be Photoshop, but it's all you need for a mobile.

Do you realy think a dumb effect on a 500 euro phone or a free app makes Adobe's 1.600 euros basic Photoshop package obsolete?!
Keep lyeing to yourself :)).

Have you even tried TPE? It's not just a dumb effect app. My point was that you don't need a Photoshop quality editor on your phone. If you need that level of editing, you move the pictures to your pc and actually use Photoshop (or GIMP, for all you cheap bastards like myself). That's why I said "It's all you need for a mobile", not "It's all you need".

No I havent and I will never-ever-ever f*k up my eyes, trying to edit a photo on a tiny 4-7-10" screen with a tool that probably is from the stone age.

Why would I spend $100+ on a real camera, when for $31.99 I can use what I already have and get the same (if not better) quality?
