Camera comparison: Samsung Galaxy S III vs the fierce competition

0. phoneArena 31 May 2012, 09:47 posted on

How about a quick camera comparison, eh?! The phones that we've chosen to include in this sweet little competition (besides the S III) are the Galaxy S II, iPhone 4S, Galaxy Note, Xperia S and Galaxy Nexus. Additionally, we're also throwing in samples made with the Canon PowerShot SD780 IS for reference. Alright, let's get going!...

Not just that.... unless you're using a TRIPOD and actually positioning each device so that its photo is capturing the same frame there is no point.

Timing is also crucial as time of day really affects outdoor shots so it is much preferred an indoor scene is shot where you can control certain elements of nature.

Ha ha ha... Ghost you need to educate yourself.

I have had an iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4 (all work provided handsets) and had my own personal handsets alongside it namely Dell Streak, Samsung Galaxy S1, Motorola Atrix and now a Samsung Galaxy S3 which I use for both work and personal.

Until the S3, Android still had some polish to be desired for overall experience as far as smoothness is concerned.

With the SGS3 Samsung smashed what Apple held for so long.

The extroardinary power and flexibility of ICS (Soon Jelly Bean) coupled with a device Apple could only dream of releasing makes the SGS3 the king of the hill.

I am not an "Android brainwashed" person... It's just if you have what we call a "higher IQ" you will go for an Android SOONER or LATER. Plain and simple.

If you like your overly draconian and limiting iOS then enjoy your simple life. Each to their own.

nokia 808 isnt even out yet 0.0

but what is really missing here is the nokia n8
where's it in this comparsion ?
Ans:
it's either that they consider the n8 camera the best amoung the competitors or it's that it's too bad to even be here, which i highly doubt, since the n8 was prove to be one of the best - if not the best - cameras out there

Iv actually been slightly unimpressed with the iPhone camera ( coming from an sgs2). It looks great on the actual phone but looks terrible on the computer for some reason. If the camera on the sgs3 is Better than the sgs2, I'm going to be happy.

SGS3 uses a different sensor than SGS2

iirc, HOX uses the same sensor found in SGS2

There's a Windows Phone device, the Titan 2, with a 16 Megapixel camera. How is that not included in this article?

How close is the macro pic to the object? I'm fairly sure the I can get close to, if not better than, the macro pics with my Evo Shift. I can get as close as about 1in away and take great focused pics.
