iPhone 4S vs iPhone 4: camera comparison
posted by Ray S. / Dec 01, 2011, 3:47 AM
If you've been skeptical about this new camera on the iPhone 4S, believe us – it's much better! Upon opening the very first scene shot with both devices, the advantages of the new model in the camera department became evident. Pretty much every aspect of the photos taken with the iPhone 4S is better – they enjoy more natural colors (no more oversaturated tones), even greater detail levels, as well as better exposure (some areas of pictures taken with the iPhone 4 tend to get overexposed, which is not present with the 4S). But we'd rather let the images below speak for themselves...
Video recording has also received an upgrade. Right from the start, we notice much more detail captured with the 1080p video of the 4S, compared to the 720p sample of the iPhone 4. Not only this, but colors also looked more natural with the 4S. On top of this, the iPhone 4S' camcorder also sports some additional features such as temporal noise reduction and image stabilization to further refine the footage you shoot. By the way, if you're interested in reading more about the new technology behind the iPhone 4S' camera, check out our dedicated article about it.

4s' snapshots are way way better than the iPhone 4's. Perhaps the 4s is the best 8 megapixel smartphone out there. That's what you get when your camera sensor is manufactured by Sony. :>

I have always been amazed by how much cameras differ. And I always wondered where phonearena takes these pictures. I like the scenary.

Iphone 4 always makes ugly photos. So oversaturated. Now all iphone fans can look at those photo comparison and they must admit (must admit? of course they will. It's a new Iphone so it's the best and blabla...the previous version is no longer something to be desired). Colors are not natural, never been and never will. I don't like Iphone too much but this new camera unit at least proves that Iphone 4 never been so much good (it was overhyped).

Waiting for iPhone 4s vs galaxy sII vs Nokia n8 camera comparison. And this time it would be good if a DSLR is used to compare the images to instead of a standard compact cam

Yes I agree, Iphone 4 camera is not good in low-light situation. When we capture a picture in low or dim light (usually Night) then we see its picture quality is effects it is due some problem in phone camera. Talking about Iphone 4s camera, its camera quality is good than iphone 4. Don’t worry I have solution for Iphone 4 camera I just found the best solution athttp://howmobile.net/apple-iphone/2853-solution-camera-issues-iphone.html. Hope you can like the solution. It’s very easy to understand. Hope the solutions solve your Iphone 5 camera trouble. Thanks
