Photos look pretty average...no better than current 8MP cameras. FAIL.
I stitch together 18 megapixel photo's on an iPhone 4 using AutoStitch panorama App, but it takes a while to process them.
sony has best camera optics and sound production quality
Anonymous, 21 Dec 2011N8 was a flop.. Nokia recalled thousands of phones due to hardware faults.Sorry. I am not, because N8 works wonderfully at my level.
does the phone only take a megabyte photo like all the 8 megapixe phones from sony ericsson?
It's true that the pictures have mind-blowing detail and dynamic range. Photos are really sharp with very good color and tonality, especially the sky and the houses. Based on the images, noise isn't really an issue when it comes to the areas where shadow is present. The camera is awesome and it shows that it can be a serious camera in a phone.
In actual fact this is all a lie. There will be no sony ericsson device. They will replace it by SONY. Sony is the worse phone for me. Phone like sony ericsson arc once you drop it it breaks. And it's extremely lagging when come to timescape. When i change to nokia N9, no matter how you drop it's still ok but only a bit of scratches. And my mum Nokia c6-01 can last until now although she drop mostly everyday. Sony design really make me sleep. there come in the same shape and design(alnost the same). I think the best phone is still Nokia and HTC is another good phone which you guys can consider. Think about that!
lennard, 22 Dec 2011are you kidding? samsung has the worst camera in the market dude... I wouldn't say Samsung are the worst. But surely not the best either. I am an Android kid and even I must admit, iPhone4 photos are pretty decent, again it's not about the MP.
I hated selling people N8s, good camera but attached to a dreadful phone, with the highest warranty replacement rate I have seen yet. The only way I sold these guilt-free was when they deservedly dropped down to a 29 cap.... you get what you pay for IMO.
If wec ompare camera part, still Nokia is best. But apart from camera, the features of phone and of the Operating System is way behind as compared to other phones. If we compare Sound quality, Sony and Apple are on the top. Multimedia features Samsung tops the chart. Camera: Nokia. Operating system: IOS and Andoid are on Top.
Most customizable OS: Andoid.
people are brand haters here.well, for me, ive been to more than 5 best brands and compared all pix outcomes and silly to read opinions here.try it urself so ull know what u saying.frankly, its not only MPs are concerned here but the camera hardware most of all.what made nokia n95 king in the past is its 5mp cam with mechanical shutter and wide angle lens.i have tried many units.i owned iphone 3gs and the 3mp cam is even a year behind those 2mp of nokias.i tried htc 5mp and i look at the output even worse than 3mp of old n73.gosh some1 here said apple used sony lens?what a hell, so u say sony is even more worse than iphone?i bought iphone coz of curiousity not of camera which is my primary fave of smartphones.
sorry guys.. I'm looking forward with Panasonic smartphone is Europe next March..
AnonD-1906, 21 Dec 2011Bye bye N8!!! :)The N8 is still better. There's nothing that can match the N8 when it comes to the camera. Nokia is the best!
Hopefully its xenon flash or dual led, single led is just pointless for night, although SE do have the awesome Exmor which is great for night photos!!
Not true, my friend. You're either dumb or playin' dumb. Nokia are the kings of cameraphones. SE have never been able to surpass them in camera quality. You can check ALL the reviews in gsmarena.com and you'll find out yourself. Only Samsung with Pixon and now Apple with 4S are getting real close.
Well, photos taken in full sunlight don't really show quality of the camera. Outdoors even my E52 made great photos. Why don't producers show indoor photos instead?
Omar, 21 Dec 2011actually I see only NOKIA when it comes to Cameraphones. just Compare N95 or iphone 4 (5MP no... moreI owned the sony ericsson satio and although the software wasnt up to much, the one thing that i could never fault was the camera, it was stunning with astounding detail, for you to compare this 12 mp camera with the 5 mp unit on the iphone 4 is an insult to me and sony ericsson. Although the camera unit is an extremely commendable 5 mp effort by apple, the sony ericsson satio camera was in another league, if u dont believe it then read the reviews.

Omar, 21 Dec 2011actually I see only NOKIA when it comes to Cameraphones. just Compare N95 or iphone 4 (5MP no... more I totally disagree,you certainly have no ideea of what you say...Sony Ericsson have the best cameras and sound,and for your knowledge,even Iphone 4GS use Sony lens.
insignum, 21 Dec 20114.55'' display-that won't be very handy. N8 is simply unbeatable :-)N8 was a flop.. Nokia recalled thousands of phones due to hardware faults.
