Best smartphone camera photos #85

Posted: , by PhoneArena Team

Last time's winner - Akash - HTC One

Last time's winner - Akash - HTC One

We're back with the 85th 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 Akash's photo, taken with the HTC One. 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 85th set of favorite photos...

Imho, photoshopped images like #3 must not participate, even if they are
very good (sorry Devin) but must be presented separately, out of competition.
Or make it a whole special presentation.

Otherwise let me take a krappy photo, correct it enough and put some
filters and say that I took that with my phone camera.

Is this a Best smartphone camera photos contest or
a Best smartphone camera photoshopped photos?

And even more I would say leave the EXIF intact. Let it be original.

It is...and that from a phone that is not so famous for the camera...too bad it's edited though. Voted for 2.

I think that #2 is really awesome: i mean, it's taken with a Galaxy S2... you need to be a really nice photografer to take a shoot like that with a 4 years old camera like GS2's !

These photos are really getting weak...Some of them aren't even really talented or good looking shots.
