Nokia should make a new phone with Xenon flash, Camera with Xenon makes better pictures.
My old N8 still makes awsome photo's, better than Iphones, Galaxy phones and Xperia phones!

The quality of the Xenon flash, sensor, lens/optics, and image processing algorithms/software matter. Nokia has led the competition in quality components and I am not talking about the build quality but the specifications such as sensor size, type of lens, power of the xenon capacitor and so forth.

That is why historically, Nokia's camera flagships have beat similarly featured camera phones in each smartphone generation.

Example, the N82 had a technically better camera system than the Motorola ZN5 Kodak phone, the Samsung Memoir and a few Sony Cybershot phones.

The N8 beat out Sony's and Motorola's xenon equipped Symbian and Android offerings as well due to the stated facts in the beginning of my post.

In short, it takes more than just including a xenon to produce accurate photos.

With that being said, I would take a xenon over a LED any day from any manufacture if the same manufacture had a LED flash camera of the same model.

1/5 of the size??? lol.. look at the pics presented. If that's truly the new cap, it's more like 1/50 of the size.
