As for C905 I don't believe in specifications until I took the shot myself. It is not a matter of megapixel, the lens and many others things are more important.

If you are asking me my opinion which phone is better, well this depends on what you want from a phone. As for me I use the phone for talking and using applications and Internet, I vote for Windows mobile here, I mean the X1.

f=6.3 does not mean the aperture is f/6.3.
If the lens says "f=x", it means its focal length is xmm.

Anyway, aperture seems to be starting from f/3 or f/4 for me. Not excellent, but still enough

> In reply to Deep @ 2009-09-28 09:19 from uw@Q - click to readYes i do agree that there is convenience with having all your gadgets in one, provided they all work but for this product in particular, i think the camera will just be extra dead weight cause it will be useless for a lot of situations. I do agree with many other post-ers about how phone companies have still not yet perfected 8MP cameras so by moving onto 12MP the problems will be amplified. Even if this phone was to be release 6 months from now, I think those who have a 5MP camera will find very little reason to upgrade once the reviews on picture quality has been released. It's like buying anything technical, somethings look good on paper but don't perform as promised except this is the other way round, the camera specs look bad on paper so will it provide good images????

its always better to carry one device rather than all your gadgets...
even though the camera is not as good as digital cameras i still prefer my phone general use....

way to go samsung...hope 2010 will see more capable device...

Optical zoom might be great but i doubt this camera will perform well, 12mp is pretty good but don't think you'll get excellent image quality except in the most favorable situations. f=6.3 means the camera will be useless except for bright outdoor shots. And if you decide to use the flash, it'll either be too weak and not travel the distance to get full use of the 3x optical zoom, or it'll kill the battery really quick. At this point in time, I'd still prefer the 5MP cameras (N97 5MP w/ F=2.8) over this one from Samsung just because they are more usable in almost all situations (Except extremely low light and fast action), it's a step in the right direction but there's still a long way to go before we see compact cameras become obsolete.

> In reply to [deleted post]You are a nut - they two DIFFERENT phones (with one intended on the Anycall lineup in Korea and the other being the European prototype )

On another note, GSMArena shouldn't give their hopes up for the W880.
Being a Korean, I have seen countless unlabelled phones that come with Wifi, divx etc etc. A missing label usually doesn't mean it won't have what the sticker says - but then, with the world all 'the more, the better' these days... We will never know till the official release I guess

Samsung and Sony knows what are they doing and this might replace your digital camera, do you own an iPhone by any chance and you feel insecure ?

Here we have a zoom of 3X optic : It's not the same thing of the traditional lens of a gsm.

Good idea : That could be really interesting for people want to take good pics and send it by gsm way

> In reply to [deleted post]The only reason why they're making a big deal is for statements

One yank goes "look at me and my 12MP camera, while you only have 5. haha"

When in reality the Nikon, Canon and Pentax camera that the 5MP camera phone owners have can trump any phone, even if it's 15MP!!

It's just for the image; if you even put SLR on it, I won't waste my time.
