iPhone 4, iPhone 4..the whole web has been in talks of it, ever since it was released. Everyone was very excited with the camera upgrade in particular. But how much does it live up to its hype? (in terms of Camera of course!)
Everyone has seen the individual pics posted on Apple’s own site:
But no one has seen it directly compared to other rivals in the market. So, let’s see this excellent comparison from the famous Fone Arena.
Now that’s taken outdoors during the day. What about indoors/under low light?
Oddly, the N95 isn’t there.
Read the full review here. Fone Arena thinks the Nokia N82 still somewhat takes better pictures than the rest, despite being the oldest in the crowd. But to my eyes, the N95 isn’t so bad too. The iPhone 4 on the other hand, seems to take images that are slightly oversaturated, and unnatural. The white balance also seems to be off. I think I need to test it myself, definitely, but from what we’re seeing here, the images don’t really live up to the hype of “It’s not really about megapixels. It’s about how big are the pixels.” Nonetheless, it’s still among the best out there.
Samsung Omnia HD is the worst of all, simply unnatural to the maximum. Nexus One is equally bad, but on the opposite side. The X6 and N900 seem to take similar photos. And E72 scores quite good too, but not very. As for the N86, I think the images go without saying, the megapixel still seems to count in picking up more details. And can you guys notice the difference due the wide-angle lens?
