5-megapixel GSM Cameraphone Comparison Q4 2007
We’ve collected the 5-megapixel phones that are available on the market and have taken a large set of photos, to see how they perform. In this test you will be able to see images taken outdoors during the day or the night and indoors, to see the flash performance. Additionally there is also an indoor test for the “macro”, or close-up photos with the flash on or off.
In our comparison, we have total of six (6) phones with five megapixel resolution, from all major manufacturers but Motorola, who don’t have phone in that class:
• Nokia N82 (Review)
• Nokia N95 8GB (Review)
• Sony Ericsson K850 (Review)
• Samsung G800 (Review)
• Samsung G600 (Review)
• LG Viewty (Preview)
• And we’ve also added the pocket 6-megapixel camera Canon SD630 for reference.
In each of the test situations we will rate the phones and based on their results position obtain the Overall result. Keep in mind, this means that for the test, each situation is equivalently important, but for most of you it will not be so. Decide for yourself which phone you like most, and use our images just to base your opinion on them.
The best phone in each situation is based on the overall quality of the images in it. We do not rate just one or two images, but each one.
We tried to use the camera’s Automatic settings whenever possible, but for night images we did use the Night modes. In each category we have placed a 100% crop image at the top of the page, which clearly the camera’s differences, both in term of color representation and detail. It helps you to easily compare the performance, seeing the same object reproduced by different devices side-by-side. We then show all cameraphones images at full resolution, followed by a ranking of 1st to 6th place.
