The i-phone camera sucks, its only 2mp which for a phone with so much hype really blows. Plus its an apple product and we all know that apple is just a try hard company.
Iphone camera sucks... very poor quality... just to take a few pictures with it.
the picture that i like more than the others is the one with the little dog...:)
rondo, 05 Nov 2008Please, you can say what you want but this was the first camera phone photo contest I see that... moreno no dude..apple is doin gr8 wth macs n ofcourse wth ipods..lets juz keep it to the iphone here..its a decent phn..not like it totally sucks..it has sm cool fearutes..i agree wth tht..BUT, it is definately NOT the best phn out there as sm owners tend to claim..we all know the downsiders of ths phn..forget the cam..a lotta phns has a 2mp cam..but the other things tht i mentioned in ma earlier posts..u juz cant ignore those ones..seriously..its an "OK" phn..love the screen n the apps..but the limitations juz get on ma nerves smtimes..n once agen, i hav to mention..coz i really do get around tranferrin files from ma phn to ma frndz..n as we all know..we cant do tht wth ths phn..so thts y, wen i go out wth ma frndz i hav to make sure i take ma n95 instead...gonna get rid of both of'em n get a htc touch pro btw..peace out!
wow how many of you people actually read this stuff before posting? Apple did NOT run this contest its by a third party, yes i have an iPhone and yes i like my iPhone, im not a fanboy, id tell you in a second all the faults i can pick with it and yes id love a G1 but they were not available when i needed a new phone and quite frankly android sounds alot under polsished, but you fanboy take the cake, a N95, better? hilarious. Win Mobile? and you wanna bitch about Apple products? what planet have you been living on?
meimei, 05 Nov 2008Iphone is the number one cameraphone in www.flickr.com so you should treat it with more respec... morePlease, you can say what you want but this was the first camera phone photo contest I see that allows photoshop, I think that this tell you how good the pictures really are! And listen when you have a 2mpx photo that you shrink to vga quality gets better not worse... No excuses please... For mac people everything has excuses, grow up!
Anonymous, 05 Nov 2008Im not sure who writes your articles and now quite frankly I don't care. Having been a reader ... moreDude, relax.
The "reviewer" actually is an iPhone owner.
And why do you call a simple news article a "review" several times?
>...you will notice that in decent light it is just as good if not better...
Steve, is that you?
Im not sure who writes your articles and now quite frankly I don't care. Having been a reader of your site for 2 years, after reading your comments tonight on this article I have come to the conclusion that instead of offering 'unbiased' opinions about phones it is your intention to just train wreck any product that your 'reviewer' does not like. If you actually bothered to try the Iphone camera yourself instead of just following the flock of sheep that must do your reviews, you will notice that in decent light it is just as good if not better then some so called 'camera centric' phones. I give you the LG Viewty - not, as an example. If you do not like the iphone camera then fine, but don't lower your site to petty comments contained in the article such as 'it sucks'. Here was me thinking that this was a mature website with interesting reviews but of late it has just started to lower the standards to trashing products like many other sites. If you can't be objective or unbiased than I suggest that your site branches out in another direction. Given the amount of advertising on your site lately (note: since the alleged 'improvements') perhaps you no longer care about what you write or who reads it? Shame - because I have enjoyed your site but no longer feel it is of any real benefit to the serious phone buyer if this is the way forward for your articles. Oh - and by the way, no, I am not an iphone owner. Also I doubt that this comment will be published. Maybe I should have slagged off a phone or two? Thanks for listening.
customer: "hey can i get an iphone plz? =)"
seller: "how wud u like ur iphone sir?"
customer: "double double plz.."
seller: "im sorry, we only hav double(the hype) half (the novelty)"
customer: "i know its double the hype...but i thot its double the crap as well!"
your just jealous that you don't have one!
That photo of the dog looks good but some of the others look like they show off how bad photos can be. It's not about resolution and megapixels, the fact that the iPhone camera is 2mp is not the problem. The iPhone camera is poor in other areas.
1 of the winners: "hey guyz look, ths is the photo tht won me the 1st prize! =D"
frndz: "wow! cool! can u send us the pic..we wanna show it to our frndz..."
the winners: "sorry, ma iphone is so awesome tht it cant transfer files via bluetooth...isnt tht juz fantastic guyz? =)"
frndz: " =| "
all i gotta say is wow............
suru, 05 Nov 2008i phone camera?
ha ha ha
i phone camera is lake a fake of nokia from china
for a good came... moreHave you even seen the fake from China???
Phones are so cheap and even have better functionality.
i always believe that is not what camera is used, its who is taking the pics, with skills, even a 2mpx is capable to take beautiful pics.
Great, another Steve Robs marketing scheme. Photo contest for a overpriced pos phone, like all other Apple hardware/software.
Best phone in the world?Lol. I mean double lol. Omnia/HTC Diamond/ HTC Touch HD/Touch Pro etc. beat the Iphone in almost every category. Hell, my aging Nokia E90 Communicator beats the Iphone spec-wise and functionality wise, the only thing it doesn`t have is a touchscreen. But at least i can use the GPS module with a real GPS software/ i can use Bluetooth/MMS/video recording etc. and i`m not limited too what Apple tells me to do, like itunes.
Rtrd 15 year old emo kids get Steve Robs, normal people get Win Mobile or Symbian or Android.
The guys at Apple are just so smart, even in their weaknesses... but to a point where they are starting to consider people a bit too stupid...
To throw a photo contest to try to compensate the fact that they have one of the worse cameras??? Brilliant, but hey, in my case: not dumb enough to swallow it, sorry... really not interested at all.
Apple, I am a costumer (I have a MacBook Pro, iPod). I will never stop hating you for not throwing at least a 3MP camera in your new iPhone...! You've lost a customer!
sory for bad englesh!!!
i phon is very bad and this camera is verya bad \\samsung innov8 is very very good cmera 8mega peksl and have abest tecanlozhy
meimei u dont have a clue what youre talking about! iphone photos suck!! no matter what u think facts are facts!!! get over it fanboy!!!
Iphone is the number one cameraphone in www.flickr.com so you should treat it with more respect! Its photos are just meant to be seen in 640*480 for photo sharing, not actual 2mp resolution and certainly not for printing.
