Warning...the following video is pretty freakin silly :-D As silly as it is, it does give us some nice insights as to which cameras take photos fastest and with the "best" quality. For a lot of smartphone users, a good camera is becoming more and more important. I personally am so satisfied with the camera on my HTC Sensation that when I go on vacation, I don't even bring a seperate camera anymore. 2012 will be a big year for cameras in smartphones, with certain phones rumored to have 15 megapixel (or more) cameras. While megapixels mean a lot, resolution is also a big factor, along with software, and in this video you get a brief glimpse at all 4 cameras and what they are capable of.

At the company I worked for last year, I received an iPhone 4 that I could use for work and privately, and I have to admit that the camera for that phone was absolutely awesome. Even though my other phone at the time (Nexus One) had the same 5 megapixels as the iPhone 4, the iPhone simply took better pictures. I personally believe that this was due to software, as Apple has an advantage of being able to develop software that harmonizes perfectly with the iPhones powerful camera. But times have changed, and as you can see in this video, the Samsung Galaxy 2, Xperia S, and Nokia 800 all have some amazing cameras (I'm actually surprised the Samsung Galaxy Nexus wasn't included in the comparison, as it takes pictures insanely fast). I think you'll be surprised at which camera actually wins the battle in this video, but then again the "which picture looks better from which phone“ question can also come down to opinion and personal taste.

So here's a silly but informative video below from the guys over at Phones4U that shows off all 4 cameras. By the important will the camera be in the next phone you purchase?

  • True...but I have to admit that the iPhone 4S has a really sick camera in terms of quality.

    Megashmixels say shit about camera quality. None up to now can beat the quality of the camera on the nokia n8.
