f/1.8 aperture is cool, definitely noticeable and possibly more important than detail, but it has been done before in 13MP sony cameras (Lenovo K900, Vibe Z).
i really don't like apple but any thinking person will favor a f/1.8 10mp camera over a 13 or even more mp f/2.4... increasing the aperture has really big advantages not only in low light
crApple at it again..10MP camera? on a phone that will cost about 700 at least.. lol *only in america* (Don Kings voice)
Stephen Bobs, 05 Feb 2014Apple reserves 13MP for iPhone7 (2015).Won't iPhone 6s be 2015
Longer lasting battery?
Slightly bigger screen?
If that could be offered... WOW!!!
Apart from processors, this year its going to ne about camera modules. All companies could do better over the past few years and now with the tech in place nowni think is the time that we get a little closer to top end point end shoots, will never have a patch on dslrs but closimg the gap will be a smart move. Looking forward to a good year for photography
Anonymous, 05 Feb 2014Links? If you're right, you're right. But, I would rather see evidence.Its been said that Neil Armstrong on occasions made superlame and intentionally boring jokes about the moon, and when noone laughed he would add "oh well, i guess you had to be there".
I was there (not on the moon) and so was lots of Apple fanboys, the topic of which was better, N900 or 3GS, was very hot on the web that time. I had a few symbian phones before that and even a Symbian touchscreen thing but i conider N900 my first smartphone, i guess you came abord later.
oh well, i guess you had to be there.
The market share of IOS phone will increase a lot because of this phone.
[deleted post]It was real when i had Nokia N900, iPhone users would come to all kind of forums and tell us that 5mpix was a gimmick, led flash was useless as it only destroyed photos, and dual led was a braindead gimmick (yes N900 had dual led, not truetone though) and the display? 800x480 on 3.5 inch, how terrible, noone needed more than 320x480 on a display that size!
iPhone always users keep defending what they have at one moment in time and are not open to evolving hardware before Apple is the one to bring it. While im definitely no android fanboy i respect their ability to embrace evolution.
Remember all the things iphone users didnt want, because noone needed them.
- Multitasking, very undesirable.
- Autofocus (this was rare but it happened, as iPhone 3G had fixed focus)
- LED flash
- Higher resolution (the most common, in 2010 320x480 was the holy cow of apple fans, vigorously defended way below the Downs level)
Hey apple fans who remember those days, we told you it may come back to haunt you one day didnt we? 800x480 on a 3.5 inch doesnt seem so overkill now does it?
You appleguys are so Amish.
mclarenfan1968, 05 Feb 2014The sensor size is more important. You can have the aperture size the size of mount Everest an... moreI agree with you, it's down to the sensor size no matter how much MP your smartphone have.
Abaddon-ISJ5, 05 Feb 2014And the 41mp is Gimmick! Then call it a pureview is a plane stupid! Samsung too - the ZOOM!!!Exactly.
MaxPower, 05 Feb 2014I'm shocked there not using 13MP or higherIt's not just about Megapixel.
Uri, 05 Feb 2014You don't need megapixels. You need quality. 8MPix is enough.And the 41mp is Gimmick! Then call it a pureview is a plane stupid! Samsung too - the ZOOM!!!
TDMaster, 05 Feb 2014just remember to Add 50$ to the price for every megapixel they add...I think you came to a wrong post.Because Apple didn't increase price of iPhones until now.Be careful about where you post your opinion.
Kai, 05 Feb 2014Lol.Same applies to clock speed and screen size. I think iphone 6 will easily cross $850 for 1... moreThat's the illusion of contract bounded deals. You end up paying way more than the cost to buy 2-3 such phones unlocked sim free.
Contract deals are just the way for people to buy a new phone quickly thinking it's somehow cheaper to afford monthly.
