Fujitsu Arrows Ultra prototype Hands-on Review

0. phoneArena posted on 29 Feb 2012, 08:08

We handled a prototype of the Tegra 3-laden superphone at MWC, and the specs that will accompany its silicon are mouthwatering. How do 4.6" HD display, LTE connectivity and 13.1MP camera with high 25600 ISO sensitivity for better low-light snaps sound to you? Pretty good, right? Not to mention that it will be water- and dustproof like we are used to from Japanese handsets...

Still a prototype. Not the complete build.

The high ISO is certainly an achievement. Most point-and-shoots have a maximum ISO of 3200 - 6400. But having a very high ISO doesn't equate to a great camera. You actually lose detail with high ISO. So we've got to see samples first before we judge this particular Fujitsu droid.

yeah, i am afraid they're gonna put some sort of aggressive noise reduction algorithm that will ruin the image, especially if the sensor is the usual 1/3.2" found in most camera phones.. the noise would be out of hand and the NR would make it even worse..

but i just hope that i am wrong in this case, i really wish that this could turn up better than previously thought..

For me (MY opinion) it's better to have an option for longer exposures. If you really want great low-light pictures you should use the lowest ISO possible (for greater detail) and a long exposure (depending on the darkness of the area). I do that most of the time, and my shots are almost always full of detail. But this is limited to stationary objects. Problem is if you are trying to capture moving objects, they will surely be blurry and ruin your image. But I still want to see a sample from this Fujitsu Droid. They released an incredulously high number, hope they live up to it like what happened to the pureview.

At least it tries to be different. It looks nice.

Looks good for the current market. By the time it comes here with a release after Summer it'll be dated.

there is always a possibility.. who knows, maybe a FullHD display in handsets (not tablet)? or Tegra3+ with LTE support? or phones with better camera (look at Nokia 808)? or maybe 2GB of RAM? Tegra3 and S4 contender from TI?

it may not be dated, but there's always a possibility.. so it is actually dumb to say that it definitely won't be..
