Here go the first Galaxy Note 3 camera samples from IFA 2013 - read the full textWe've got some early camera samples from the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, which we were able to snatch off the Samsung booth at the IFA 2013 floor. While we like to step outside for these matters we were still happy to see how the 13 MP snapper on the Note 3's back does even inside the venue. Before...

The camera on the note 3 is terrible even when compared to my older, outdated phones. This is a flagship phone and it should have a good camera. Period.

What irritates me is that like my gs3, it I takes horrible pictures, nearly the same despite "specs". Watercolors in the rain is the best description I can say. All light situations, flash, no flash, zoom or not, etc., yet not one picture with any detail. I have an old 1.3mp camera that takes better pictures!. In fact the front cam on the note 3 takes pictures nearly identical to the "13mp" rear. Hey Samsung, did you forget to put the right sensor in some phones? Since they are made in china, it wouldn't surprise me. I spent way too much on this phone, and don't get me started on how bad the radios are. Even full wifi signals get an "unstable connection" error message. I'm not happy at all....

The Galaxy Note II has the best camera in regards to the Samsung line. The S4 takes grainy photos even in bright light, and the Note 3 does as well. I don't know if this is a firmware issue or what, but Samsung needs to quickly fix it.

for everybody out there if sony,lg,and ofcourse the now taken by MS , nokia are doing so well with their phones than why arent they being purchased...its like praising a classic movie but not watching it cause you know from inside you dont wanna watch it...people everywhere are buying samsung( or otherwise they wont be no. 1 in smartphones now) and people just dont care about sony , lg , or now non-existent NOKIA or they wont be in loss or just wont be selling their has proven track record over the time in smartphones so stop trolling about plastic , cheap etc etc etc and face the truth...

dude, you seem to be more aptly paid by sony rather than my post i never even for a word talk about benchmarks...i m a doctor nd these benchmarks dont matter for me atleast in practical life...have used 6 sony phones ( now how can u say that its a botched up story ... have you been following me lol )...i was once a fan of sony with their walkman series but started having trouble with my each phone , latest being your loved companies not so distant flagship xperia z.. maybe the worst phone i have ever handled in my rid of it in just 17 days by selling it for almost a loss of 75% of what i purchased it...have being using samsung galaxy s4 since june 20( it launched in my country on 18 june) and have got every game that you think can be downloaded on my phone be it nfs mw , asphalt 8 , dead trigger or any other that you can think...atleast for me i have never had a single glitch in my phone or so called lag...maybe sony paid you enough to try their phones for free and praise them on every that case i want to know actually how much you got paid...???

I want to see proper camera comparison between z1 and note3. Indoor photos with same ISO, then we will see which one is superior.

If it is blurry then perhaps the reviewer did not hold the device properly or out of focus. Remember that S4 performed well in almost all areas except in VERY LOW to ALMOST NO light conditions although not as good as Lumia 1020. Night mode on S4 was functioning better than those on HTC One in low light condition...So I presume that the Note 3 will be good enough and on par with most of the current flagship devices.

Didn't you read the reviews about Z1 in gsmarena or other sites? The picture quality wasn't mind-blowing at all. Was just marginally better than the current flagship devices except Lumia 1020 of course. Don't tell me the comparison from Sony page, please.

Xperia S,Z and older xperia TM devices, ( since the neo )
sony added to much compression to images, and a lot
of post processing filters, not like samsung so
before talking plz, research....
