Just like HTC before it, Samsung is making a good use of the new Android ICS camera API with the 8MP module on the Galaxy S III. The camera on its newest flagship sports f/2.6 aperture, compared to the f/2.65 on the Galaxy S II, and the focal length has shrunk to 3.7mm from 3.97mm, allowing you to fitmore scene in the frame...

Know what, go get your innovative 41mp camera phone with anything else outdated, and leave the GSIII to those who love SMARTphones!

Id rather have the monster phone that does everything great, then a camera phone who's only trick is taking excellent massive pictures.

The pre-release pictures here look great. At least that will put some of people's worries to rest.

Compare this phone's camera with Nokia's present flagship phone Lumia 900/800 . Not with other phones with special functions .

If that's not the case i can blindly comment negatively in any phone's section that it doesn't have a projector like Samsung's projector phone or cannot handle toughness like motorola's Defy etc .

This comment would have made sense after the launch of the Nokia's beast (ie) Windows 8 + Pureview . I would love that .

Galileo Your trolling is getting hilariously funnier supporting a Nokia phone against android. The galaxy s3 is competing quite well in fact in the camera department equally current top available handsets except for a novelty phone from Nokia with a 41mph count nobody actually needs. In all other counts the galaxy s3 is ahead of the competition. It'd be interesting to see your festering comments to the Nokia 41mp camera when the iphone 4$$ or 5 what ever it calls "can't compete" due to having an 8mp camera or slightly higher

I dont really give a crap either way. They both look like good quality cameras are are an improvement over what I currently use, which is what I'm lookin for.

Hold your "this phone is better than that" BS until they do a side by side comparison to show it one way or another.

your comparison is as same as comparing a human to a giant.
(Comparing 8MP to 41MP?! Are you serious?)

The Galaxy S III's camera was never meant to compete with the Pureview.

yea, if i were you, id wait for the inevitable side by side comparison they do before you start shooting your yap off about who's camera is best. The i4s didnt win every category last time.. in fact if i remember it came in like 2nd.
