Samsung Epic 4G vs Apple iPhone 4 vs Motorola DROID X - the camera comparison

0. phoneArena 21 Sep 2010, 11:41 posted on

We've taken the three best smartphones from this summer which we've seen take the best pictures and pit them against one another to see which one really can out gun the other. And to compare the images produced by these top-end smartphones, we've included shots from a 12.1-megapixel Panasonic Lumix FZ35 camera...

This is a discussion for a review. To read the whole review, click here

Let's be real...no one is really curious about JUST the camera of these 3 phones. Phone Arena has evenly rated the best 4 phones on the market, and though user preferences may make us choose one over the other personally. There is a best phone on the market right now. Here's what the people want to see. HTC Evo 4G vs. Apple Iphone 4 vs. Motorola Driod X vs. Samsung Epic 4G. These ARE the best 4 phones on the market. Let's do a Real comparison of the 4..AND RANK them in order, 1-4. I guarantee this will be the best, and most viewed comparison you guys will write, until their successors launch late next year.

All picture were zoommed in to 100%, since the Droid X takes picture at 8 Megapixles and the others at 5, zooming in at 100% is going to yeald a closer looking picture or "over zoomed" for the X so phonearena is not being bais. And yes when i zoom in to my X's picture the "Stencle effect" is very apparent in evey picture". The Driod X does not take as sharp 8 mp pictures as the other do at 5 mp. Maybe if the X's pictures were scaled down to 5 mp to compare we would have seen sharper comparables for the X. It's higher resolution may have been its downfall for this partucular test, which is a shame because i have take some fantastic pics with my X. Take a look at this link as well of droid users personal photography, you will agree. http://androidforums.com/motorola-droid-x/123502-post-pictures-you-have-taken-your-droid-x.html

I have to agree, this site is completely biased. How can you possibly do a comparison when every picture taken is almost completely different. All of you should just drop to your knees for steve jobs already. Ive had the iPhone, besides the iPod and apps, its a joke of a phone. FROM NOW ON IF YOU DECIDE TO DO COMPARISSONS, PLEASE DO IT PROPERLY!!!! IM TIRED OF GETTING ON THIS SITE JUST TO SEE ANOTHER ARTICLE ON HOW YOU THINK THE WORST SMARTPHONE IN THE HISTORY OF SMARTPHONES IS THE BEST!!!

You all should have known that this was going to be an ass comparison because the Epic 4g wasn't one of the "hottest" phones of the summer. I work at Radio Shack and in my district and all US districts we are getting more EVO requests than Epic requests. I have actually had two Epics in the back of my store since release. We haven't had an EVO since the day of release. We got about four in and sold out in about an hour then everytime we get another in we sell it within three or so hours. Every Epic sold in my district had been exchanged for and EVO or been returned entirely and switched to AT&T for the Iphone 4.

I have the droid x, its photos are excelent, and the ui is a pleasure to use. I work next to a guy with the icrap 4 and we did a comparison at work with the 2 phones and the droid x did much better job at photos...as for the epic 4g i cant say. I have been reading phone arena for a few years now and so far they have rated the iphone best in every area for some reason, even though there are clearly some better options in the phone world! and no im not bias, i have had a ton of smartphones, i just prefer the android os.

Look who does all of the advertizing here on PA. I wonder if PA advertizers ever read comparison of the products with the idiot phone here on PA. If they ever did I think they may pull all of their adds.

Yes Im Biased, because Apple is horridly for the simple"i don't have a clue" minded, and in my opinion- don't deserve the right to even consider themselves apart of the cellualr world, GSM/UTS folks=2 way Walkie talkie. Sure you have an Apple Product, and Yep you wasted your money. Fact 1-Android is far superior to Apple.(I didn't ask this, i stated it.) Fact 2-The EVO nor the X needs duct tape to SEND a picture that is taken. Fact 3- Steve Jobs is a tool. Fact 4-The X is Superior to all devices in question due to it being a true CDMA Device. Not "Lets use WIMAX and pretend it's 4G". Not "We have an App for deadzones, to mark the carriers short comings". To sum it up, a device that takes pictures is only as good as the network it's on. So go head, get an EVO and enjoy your "pretend 4G", proceed to Apple's simplicity and lack of thought of its users. I would rather use smoke signals to call 911, than to trust my needs with a product that is designed around a logo and a name. Stop and ask yourself, Who Owns Apple? Now ask, Who Owns Linux(for you Apple users AndroidSDK is linux) the people own Android, Android doesn't own you. Guess im going to go take some pictures in the dark, good luck Apple, your going to need every dollar you've conned to keep up the pace. Android is ┬župeriour. Hands Down....... I said Hands Down, no further questions. Peace

Soooo, 10000 pages and in the end you give out the usual "it's down to preference" crap? Come on... from what I could tell it's a close battle between Apple and Samsung but the Epic seems to take the cake.

The comments on here are really getting on my nerves... a lot. The iPhone 4 is amazing. No matter what anybody says. Apple is a great company, therefore, they make great products. The Droid X is an amazing phone, too. I have the Samsung Epic and I think it's amazing, too. To be honest, the phone is the best TO YOU depending on what suits your needs. If you want a keyboard phone then get a keyboard phone.

Another thing that annoys me is the anti iPhone users and the iPhone fanboys. Seriously? Just because the iPhone is great doesn't meant that every other phone sucks. iPhone fanboys are extremely biased and it annoys me. My friend JUST got an iPhone 4. Right before he got his new phone he was saying how my Samsung Epic was better than the 4 but not better than the 4S. I agreed. Well, then he got the 4 and told me it was better than my phone. He also was telling my friend, who has the Envy Touch, that her phone was amazing. Now he tells her that her phone is crap. That's just one example. Apple fanboys are extremely annoying because they think the only thing that anybody should get is an Apple product... this isn't true. Don't be naive.

Also, anti iPhone users are completely biased, too. They don't like the iPhone, just because it's popular and expensive... news flash! So are the phones they want. It just kind of annoys me. All nice phones are expensive. Just because something is popular doesn't mean you shouldn't get it. If you want the phone, then get the phone. Don't be naive. Plus, some people take it to the extreme. I have a friend who's FaceBook status update said "Yay, Steve Jobs died!" That's not okay. He was a living person who was trying to make people happy with his products. He did great and for people to wish he was dead then cheer when he does die is cruel, sick, and not okay. It pisses the hell out of me.

I just felt like everyone on here had to stop arguing. If someone handed me an iPhone, and I didn't have the Samsung Epic, I'd gladly take the iPhone. If I had an iPhone and someone handed me a Samsung Epic, I would keep using the iPhone because that was MY phone. Don't be biased people.
