Please make the OIS works like the one on Lumia smartphones =D They're awesome! Not like Note 4. It's almost like the camera doesn't have OIS.
Okay Nokia - now Samsung have OIS in their phone cameras.
What do you have now? Can't keep resting on the laurels of yesteryear.
what's the use of your 20mp camera, when your phone isn't SONY or APPLE? make sense?
90% of my shots just need 1152pixel redolution, because our desktop screen is around that resoultion. i can take another closer shot when i need any specific detail. too high redolution photo is just a waste of space in phone, in harddrive
phone camera could be further improved in these area
1. even nicer and accurate sensor, though current ones are nice enough indeed, we often hope for better
2. ois, true, to reduce possibility of blurred image. maybe it is because the shape, size of phone, the way of operation made the blurred images more possible compared with traditional compact cameras.
3. think of some way to allow focus on a plain large area of same color
4. make optical zoom available, 2x, 3x whatever, but maintain the current small lens size on back of phone. dont want extra large protruded lens on back.
5. improve, fine tune the camera ui. why not add a easy one click button to set the timer, finer timer. 1s, 0.8s etc. occasionally if i need one hand operation, i need this feature desparately. to avoid blurred images.
6. allow light to turn on up to my need, so i can check the effect if using the light.
7. could allow even holding the phone in a portrait way, still can take landacape mode video. seen too many fools took vertical style videos, how those video can be played normally on normal wide tv.
Nice. All indicates a powerful device with good design. But no more removable battery? :(
I want removable battery... Damn... I love cameras on Samsung smartphone...
AnonD-216585, 24 Jan 2015no matter what i said before, nothing beats manual settings of camera with more pixels as noki... morelet`s make 100 mp :D mp war is useless cuz not only MP is ordering picture/video quality, hows about good OIS, Lens sytem and mianly software !
AnonD-275729, 24 Jan 2015"...The iPhone 6+ has an 8mp camera, but it is the best camera I have ever seen on a phon... moreWell, don't doubt it.
We had the 808 at the office and until the iphone 6+ I would have said it had the best camera, by a good margin. I don't love Windows and the camera was too laggy for me, or I would have bought it for the camera.
But the iPhone 6+ has better balance and in most situations, better dynamic range. I see better detail in contrasty scenes.
Take a look at photos taken with the iPhone 6+ and you'll see why it's my first iphone in a while. But it's great :-)
AnonD-216585, 24 Jan 2015no matter what i said before, nothing beats manual settings of camera with more pixels as noki... moreI have both nokia 808 and note 4. For your kind information note 4 is a better camera phone on the go. Nokia 808 is already surpassed by note 4 and may be many other phones.

Somehow I seriously doubt that. I take it that you have never seen an 8MP Pureview image from a Nokia 808Pureview from 2012?
BatamKing, 24 Jan 2015Not much improvement against S5. They can actually jump further but they give consumer a slow ... more20MP is soo last year but Sony is the only company that made so its stil a new thing... Hope they put their own chips throught ... and bloatware u talkin about, thats the one thing thats sooo 3 yrs back...use Note $ and u will see it has been trimmed down ...
i am a Samsung fan however the camera is not so much the problem but it is the touchwiz, i sincerly hope that get it right this time or else their profit will continue to fall.

How hypocryte. When Google adds the features to Android, people rave on how cool it all is. When Samsung adds them to TouchWiz they're called Bloatware.
"...and lower their price..."
WTF? The Samsung Flagships have always been cheaper than the others upon release. This has been with the S4 and the S5. In my own case my S5 was merely 50 bucks more expensive than a regular S4. I thought that was a very good deal. Less then 400 bucks such a device. Granted, I didn't buy it upon release but waited a few months.
But even today It still is a great device. Touchwiz on kitkat has the same featureset as a standard Lolipop. Another reason why Lolipop sucks is because it's severe amoled hostile and 64-bit support is completely useless on a 2Gb device with 32bit-cpu. So common sense dictates that I'm gonna skip this update to Android 5.0. Besides I need full call recording (alos on bluetooth) so I need a rooted device (and need to know that the software that I use is stil compatible on 5.0). Then there's the bugs that are still piling up on 5.0.x. Reasons enough to skip 5.x altogether for now
I hope Samsung one day come to their senses and stop copying every jackshit crapware around. I loved the soft shadows under TW Jelly Bean icons. I loved Holo and I love black themed items especially on Amoled screens where a tiny fraction of coloured accents is enough to pop out and make it gorgeous.

For showing photo on large screens, 1080x1920 is more than sufficient up to about 70" and for much larger yet, UHD is plenty.
The iPhone 6+ has an 8mp camera, but it is the best camera I have ever seen on a phone.
In my tests, the iPhone 6+ has a great balance: much better than the S5 (which I returned, because of the poor dynamic range) and noticeably better than the Xperia Z2, which was my previous phone (I think Sony's processing is generally subpar, but even with 3rd party camera apps, the pics are not much different).
I am not a big fan of Samsung, but I keep hoping, so I have had four Galaxies so far, even though I've never liked the design.
But I hope that they come up with a great camera, because we need the competition.
Not much improvement against S5. They can actually jump further but they give consumer a slow increase of specs to squeeze some money every year.
20MP camera was so last year. Sony did that nicely.
I have Samsung. The bloatware is just a pain.
Note 4 feels premium with lots of useless apps inside. If Samsung fix this and lower their price, I believe they will regain some market share from iPhone.
I dont have an iPhone but I definitely will buy it instead of Samsung when the price gap is close.
