PhoneArena Awards 2012: Best Cameraphone

0. phoneArena 11 Dec 2012, 10:37 posted on

Phones aren't just for calling anymore, and we bet that even your grandparents are well aware of that. Instead, taking photos is what smartphones are used for the most, as recent surveys have shown. And that should come as no surprise: most high-end smartphones can capture images so good that they are well capable of replacing an entry-level point and shoot camera. Therefore, including a 'Best Cameraphone' category in our PhoneArena Awards of 2012 seems quite logical to us...

When we are talking about the cameraphones, so very importing thing is also how good it is to capture videos and when we talking about videos, so it is very important how good quality audio it can record. Nokia's Rich Recording technology is unbeatable at this moment and it due to mostly HAAC (High Amplitude Audio Capture) microphones which Nokia 808 Pureview and Nokia's WP8 serie's Lumia devices (920, 822, 820, 810, 620) have. With HAAC mics the recorded audio is distortion free also at the loudest music performances and it can record very low bass sound vs Nokia's rivals have nonHAAC mics and so the recorded audio at music concert recordings is mostly distorted and they can't capture low bass sound. In my opinion is that year 2012 the 6 best cameraphones are all Nokia's:
1. Nokia 808 PureView
2. Nokia Lumia 920
3. Nokia Lumia 822
4. Nokia Lumia 820
5. Nokia Lumia 810
6. Nokia Lumia 620

I think Nokia is going to sell a New pure vue Windows smart phone because of a patenent they filed recently in the USA. I bet it will be a great one.

hey, this is just my opinion.. SONY have the best camera of all time, from their name Sony Ericsson until they change to SONY.. they (phonearena) should, at least, give a model for each brand for each categories, like:
BEST CAMERAPHONE 2012
Apple: iPhone 5
HTC : One X
Nokia : Lumia 920
Samsung : SGNoteII
Sony : Xperia T

and lastly dont underestimate other product that you dont really know whether it is really good or is it really bad... peace(Y)

I don't think Sony has even a better camera sensor, if really, it should be on the list
