Default what is the best camera phone?

To me sony ericsson w810 has had the best camera. This phone was realeased 4 years ago but it takes awesome photos with autofocus and flash.


Now iphone 4g is doing its jobs with nice photos but is not accesible for everybody.

I think Nokia n8 has the best camera out there. It's 12mpix, although obviously megapixels are nothing to go by. I think it has a "Carl Zeiss" lens.

I've also been starting to look for a phone and decent camera. One that will work with TracPhone - prepaid costs about $100/yr given the minutes I use.

I think I'll just wait for the telecom option on the Leica.

LOL. I wonder if anybody has hooked up an iPhone to something like this:

Hooker telescope, Mt. Wilson Observatory.

Not sure on the best, but I can tell you that the "8MP" camera on the Moto Droid X is complete garbage

I think the 5MP unit on the Moto Droid 1 and the new Droid 2 is better, and that unit wasn't the best either. I haven't used an 1Phone 4 (AT&T service is horrible in my area), however like shoturtle said, I think my old BlackBerry (3MP) took better photos than all of my most recent smartphones.

While I never expect these phones to perform as well as even an entry-level digicam, it would be nice to get at least some high-quality 2-3 megapixel images from them. Don't hold your breathe though, seems the megapixel race is in full swing with these phones nowadays...

Well, Panasonic is about to launch a Lumix phone in Japan.

This will be the first camera with a phone rather than phone with a camera.


Very tempting of course, but rumours are for an early 2011 release in Japan, the rest of the world probably won't see it until mid-year if ever.

This also looks interesting:
