10 great images captured with smartphones #110

We're back with the 110th post in our special photographic-centric series where we present you with a number of awesome images taken by... well, you (and your cell phones).

So, which picture did you like most last time? The answer is Elliot Silva's photo, taken with the Samsung Galaxy S5. And a pretty well-deserved first place it is, we should say!

Of course, there are many other incredible images left to be seen. Let's continue with another set of 10 pics, each of which can easily convince even the most professionally-inclined photographer that cell phones are more than a toy in the camera department.

Please note that if your own awesome image is not included here, this doesn't mean that it won't end up on the site. We simply might not have gotten to it yet! So, we urge you to continue following us, as we'll be publishing more of these truly great photos in the following days and weeks.

We'd also like to remind you that you can continue submitting your cool cell phone pics to the following email address:

In order to not miss on all the glory, you also have to mention your name/nickname, as well as the phone you used to take the shots. A nice additional piece of info would be a name or a short description for the image.

With that, we now leave you with our 110th set of favorite photos...

Which photo do you like most?

I love 3 and 4. Tough choice! 6 is also an excellent photo and 9 is a cool sight.

I took the pic with my girlfriend's z2 in manual mode, iso 100. I put the phone on a ledge and put the camera on self-timer. No tripod needed :P

Pic no 4 has filter enabled. If it is fair to use filters then we'll see a lot more crappy pics beautified with filters from here on in

I'd say that using a filter is no more a "cheat" than using HDR or something like that. For me, this is more about the framing and subject and 'feeling' that a good picture gives you and not purely the quality of the image. Other opinions may vary :)

No. 4 is what you call photography . Others are just good quality pics .

I wish PhoneArena stops mentioning the models of the phone used to take said pics . This would reduce fanboy voting and make it a truly blind comparison.

Unfortunately, this series is NOT a blind comparison. I think it's actually cool that some really old phones (like Nokias of old) can still go head to head with newer smartphones. (Although it's still up to the photographer to capture a moment.)

That is what I want too ! A great photo , clicked by a Nokia , but downvoted by some Android / Apple fanboy. They can always release the model info later and we would be like " Oh , Wow ! That phone still rocks !!"

No 10 is not even worthy of a mention here.
