10 valuable tips and tricks on smartphone photography
Isn't it amazing how much smartphone cameras have evolved over the past years? As we're already convinced having tested dozens of them, most high-end handsets can easily match the performance of a basic point-and-shoot unit. This helps to explain why more and more people don't bother carrying a dedicated camera with them anymore and just use their phones instead. However, while smartphone cameras are, in general, simple and straightforward to use, not all people know how to make the most of them. And what's really disturbing, some smartphones are, by default, set to not use the full potential of their cameras. That's why we decided to write this post and give novice users a few helpful tips on smartphone photography.

Everything that was said applies to all smartphones including the Nokia 1020 or whatever phone your peddling. A good camera doesn't make up for a crappy photographer and these tips help a lot.
