Samsung Galaxy S II vs LG Optimus 2X vs Nokia N8 vs Apple iPhone 4: Camera comparison

0. phoneArena posted on 20 May 2011, 08:03

The smartphone universe became ripe again for camera comparisons, especially with the introduction of handsets, capable of recording Full HD 1080p video. That is why we took a few of the most popular high-end smartphones that are on the shelves, and staged a shootout...

Dear iPhone-fan boy,

Looking at your writing i can guess that you never had a N8 in your hands. Because, if you were, you would know the big difference between camera capabilities of those phones. Videos on iPhone looks so ugly compared to N8. Also with night photos, or fast changing the sun light.
That is a result of combining Carl-Zeiss optics with Nokia developers.
So, for amateurs like you iPhone is better. Keep it that way. Your brain is already washed out.

you can't really consider iphone4 as a top cameraphone...especially now that the android gang has released a bunch of quite formidable cameras (arc, sgs2). Ip4 is only a super easy phone to use. when u get it, u don't need to learn anything, it's that easy. But in this day and age, there's hardly any technology illiterate people out there...except for someone's grandpas/mas...

n8 seems to have the best still imaging out there...video-wise, i think sgs2 has the upper hand compared to the other 3 (or any phones really)...

again ip4's vid isn't really awesome...

For still images, no one has pointed out that while the Nokia N8 has great dynamic range, and the 4-7 megapixel advantage (12 vs 8 vs 5), the lens is horribly soft in the corners. So if you want sharp images across the field of view then the Samsung Galaxy SII is the winner, but if you tend to crop your photos a lot then go with the Nokia.

Nokia N8 is d best Camera smartphone...No comparison with the 12MP cam with a Xenon flash...Just recheck the pics and u will find that N8's pics r d best...more natural lookin',more focused and more clarity based...But some pics of the iPhone4 look bright and some pics of the Galaxy S2 also look bright...lemme tell u guyzz 1 thng...the brightness of some pics of iPhone4 and S2 are just bcoz of the screen resolutions...960*640 pixels in iPhone 4 and mayb 800*640 on the S2...the best screen resolution...that's the reason Y d pics on iPhone 4 and S2 look bright but just think...it's just bcoz the screen is bright...making the pics also look bright...just think guyzz...12MP (4000*3000 pixels) with a Xenon flash...No comparison at all...I think that just bcoz N8 is a MOBILE PHONE having such a wonderful and amazing camera...they've compared N8 2 other Mobile phones only...I seriously tell u...My N8 gives better results than my frnd's 10MP Canon professional camera...I think that N8's cam shld b compared with some professional cameras...!!!
