iPhone 5 photo samples are published in full resolution

Soon after detailed information about the iPhone 5 was published on the Apple web site, we came across these photo samples taken with its 8-megapixel camera and decided to share them with you. These are the same photos that were shown off during the smartphone's official unveiling, yet now we get to take a closer look at them as the shots are in their original form and full resolution...

The Media is really really trying to push this phone down the public throat. This was/is a bust!.

I like what I see, but these are sure selected photos and normal users may not be able to take such photos as some skills and conditions surely are required to take those samples. But with the phone so thin, this is very nice camera. And this will push other OEMs to try harder, great stuff.

And award for dumbest post ever goes to you. A phone that will shatter all kinds of sales records, has the best screen on a smartphone, excellent camera, etc is a bust. Lmao, android freaks never cease to amaze me. Your frightened by something that has no bearing on you whatsoever.

@Tre-Nitty: ifone5 does not have the best screen on a smartphone. But what metrics are you affirming this? Also, what is the etc.?? lol! I will say, however, that iPhone4-4s have had the best camera. I own the SG3 and iPhone4s. SG3 camera can't touch iPhone's. Sorry Android friends. In normal and edge condition usage, iphone4s has just about always delivered better images compared to my SG3 in both color reproduction and IQ. This is coming from an Android fanboy, by the way. Android manufacturers just make crappy cameras!!

I'd like to see a comparison between the Lumia 920, iPhone 5, and iPhone 4S. All fanboyism aside, it is a decent camera, wouldn't you agree?

I thought I was the only one thinking like that...media is trying to make the public feel and think all is well with the phone. Funny enough they are doing a good job. Isheeps will fall for it. Someone give me a note 2 to clear this phone of the table.

What else do you want from an upgrade? Literally everything is improved.....

Not so sure, the phone is sexy, but in normal use I bet many would love to have better battery life with a slightly thicker phone, the screen is not big enough and iOS6 sucks.

i would think apple is positioning the new ipod touch to replace the point and shoot cameras. $199 and you got hundreds of apps. internet, and 5 mp camera.

The pictures may be real but the lighting doesn't look it, especially of the children in the grass. I'm sure someone was holding a mirror or a light screen etc.

I'm still content with the pictures my iPhone 4 takes. These phones cameras are getting crazy good.

More free advertising for big fruity.. What a joke of a product. YAWN FEST Same as the old iphoney.. wtf is this.. The iphoney 4s.1? What a bunch of junk. 4 Fn inches of screen? LMAO.. Really 4 fn inches.. made out of half sammy products.. nothing big fruity made, just a retooled old design.. One phone for all? LMAO typical big fruity.. control what everyone uses, has, etc.. One size doesn't fit all.. Except for the fantwinks.. Enjoy that phone, oh wait, it'll be banned, due to LTE issues! Big Fruity can't innovate so they litigate.
