8MP is fine. I just wish Apple will use a bigger sensor i.e 1/2.5". Also, I don't trust the rumor that Z3 will use a downgraded 21MP camera (1/2.4") which is a little bit smaller than Z1/2 20.7MP (1/2.3"). I mean, why would a successor gets a downgraded camera than its predecessor?
if apple put on a 13 mpx camera it will have storage insufficient problems with the 16 GB version

Great. Nobody needs more than 8MP anyway. Those 16MP and 20MP are just marketing gimmicks. Nobody prints or uploads photos to social networks in those resolutions.
If this is true then this time really apple will be dissappionting lots of their fans bcoz consecutive 3 times apple is taken out their phones with same 8 mp camera whereas other brands like samsung,sony are way a head of apple in terms camera..if this happen again then sadly it would be said that apple is no longer the best camera smartphone out here in market..
My GF uses iphone 4s and I'm galaxy s3 user and I have to admit that when we film our kids, I try to use her iphone rather than my samsung, quality is better, both phones are old now, dont know how is it with newer models.
8MP with at least 3x optical zoom will be very good but don't think they will make it...
Anonymous, 21 Mar 2014Thank you Apple for focusing on quality over quantity. And for being considerate of the storag... moreDude your brand possession is beyond cure,where on earth 8MP can contain any quality? Smaller file size also indicates low quality,they just trick you with texture,nothing's more, more mega pixels does bring out better quality and better lens also increase the quality of the photo. I know in your mind you can't deny that other smartphones' pictures are way better than crappy iph5s. Too bad their Macs are still failing and currently they are relying on money bullied from Samsung! Quite pathetic,isn't it?
Apple fans are still rejoicing. They think that only iPhone has "better quality" and others phones don't have ! What an idea ! RIP apple.
bongbong, 21 Mar 2014It seems that you havent seen the other cellphone cameras that have higher quality than the iP... moreiphone 5 camera is more than enough. if i need pro shot i use dslr. other wise iphone 5 is perfect.
It seems that you havent seen the other cellphone cameras that have higher quality than the iPhone 5s like the Nokia Lumia 1050 or the Sony Xperia Z1 or the Note 3 and more... plus they allow memory card expansion too.
Is it so hard to admit that Apple's iPhone Cameras can and have been superceded?
Thanks other Phone Manufacturers for pushing the Envelope while not charging the same ridiculous prices as Apple.
