Test 3: Pictures taken under variety of inside lighting conditions

We compared the cameraphones indoors under a wide variety of artificial lighting conditions, which reveals how their Automatic White Balance performs. Also, in darker images, more noise appears and the detail disappears, which is another problem for most cameraphones.

The V9m comes back to 1st place, since images have excellent color representation and overall good detail. Also, the Auto White Balance on the V9m worked the best out of any phone, and can easily adjust to a variety of lighting conditions (fluorescent, incandescent, and halogen). The Maxx Ve is a close 2nd, with the only noticeable difference being that images don’t have as much color saturation, but the Auto White Balance still works well with various types of light. Coming in 3rd is the Voyager, due to images being slightly darker and underexposed than they should be. In 4th place in the FlipShot, which still suffers from the same Auto White Balance and Autofocus problems that plagued the A990. Even when manually changing the white balance to Tungsten or Fluorescent, we could not achieve a “natural/neutral” color to the image.

The phone’s performance, sorted from 1st to 4th place:

1) V9m: Colors are the most saturated and the Auto White Balance works well with different types of lighting.
2) Maxx Ve: Not as much color saturation, but images still look good and no problems with the Auto White Balance.
3) Voyager: Images are a little darker than they should be.
4) FlipShot: The only phone that suffers from Auto White Balance problems. This was an issue with the A990 and has not been fixed on the FlipShot.

We would also like to add that the only phones with a built-in Flash are the FlipShot and Maxx Ve. Our tests show that the flash on the Maxx Ve is more powerful and produces better looking images than FlipShot. If you require a good flash on your cameraphone, then we would recommend the Maxx Ve over the FlipShot.

Wow.... unbeleivable. The FlipShot is a didicated camera/camcorder phone, and it lost the whole shootout.

The motorola Maxx seemed to have the crispest pictures, the darkness is something that i could live with, becuase the problem with most camera phones today is there pictures are always blurry which makes them unattractive for any use. the only thing i have against the Maxx is what i have against most verzion phones, they ugly uncustomizable U.I. which only comes in RED but most verizonphones suffer from this locked up the a** user interface. maybe one day they will get a clue and make a not 4 year old technology cellphone

I have to say I was shocked that the V9m. Ive had one and thought it didnt take good pix. My Voyager or my Envy takes way better pictures and is so much easier to use and view on!!! And the Flipshot is just kind of a dissapointment all around so Im not shocked at it taking last.

i did the test myself and to my suprise the flipshot has better pics. the flipshot takes better day and night pics so i dont no what these people were doing that the flipshots pics didnt come out clear. dont believe me? go to verizon compare the 4, save the pics to your micro sd and upload to your pc and then you decide for yourself.

excellent test, shows that people overlook motorola. The motorazr 2 is one of the best phones around, and certainly my favorite

I'm shoked MaxxVe was rated so lowly. I have that phone and it is way better than the Voyager. Personally the best camera phone I've ever used is my Blackberry Curve. Crisp and clean even in low light.
