Best smartphone camera photos #82

We're back with the 82nd 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 Robby's photo, taken with the Google Nexus 4. 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 82nd set of favorite photos...

Which photo do you like most?

I'm no photography expert but I don't think it's possible to get those sun flares on #3

The first three are all very good, #3 being the best (#1 gets close though).

#1 looks good but the bokeh seems too pronounced (edited?). #2 and #3 are well composed But the wall on #2 kinda ruined it. I dig the lens flare (?) on #3 though it lacks details.

It's not about the best camera, it's about the best photo.

Number 3 ruined by the wall on the right, otherwise it would have been the best picture hand down.

Can't really decide on this, I Like all of them but because I have to choose then I would like to choose the 8th one as the best. BTW the 3rd picture proofs the 'A Good photographer takes better picture than the best camera' Quote. It was taken with a Motorola Razr i!

I love this, because every time I look at these best smartphone photos I get pleasantly surprised that it may have been a 3 year old phone that took such a beautiful shot :)
