well samsung will be bringing out the Galaxy S2 HD soon that'll knock the socks off of these wanna bees.
remember the s2 tested here is 8 months old now.
Which means Sony wins because it made the camera in the 4S. Wonder how much Apple paid off Sony to make sure it isnt advertised and take all the credit for the camera.
Bias shootout, nice attempt trying to get away with your Apple fanboyism but ignorance strikes you down this time. At least if you mention who made the camera than it would be acceptable.
I think xperia arc s is the best in still photo. But for video i think 4s is the bset that because a high bit rate.
iPhone 4S 1080p video have the most detail.
The simple reason is that, Apple didn't do much compression to the bloody video files!!! That's mean your iPhone limited memory will be filled up pretty soon....10min cost you 1GB....that's crazy!!
Anonymous, 10 Nov 2011You should create a poll with these pictures without labeling them and have the masses decide!yup, i have to agree with this one. its a great idea. i think something like this had been done here be4, y dun do it again? people cant blame gsmarena for anything coz they are the one who decide the winner. and considerably less headche and wars in the comment section
This is taken from GSMArena's Xperia Arc review:
"The image quality is EXCELLENT."
"There are no purple-fringing or over sharpening – NOISE LEVELS ARE IN CHECK, TOO."
And this is taken from the shootout review:
"While the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S scored AVERAGE MARKS among the best 8MP shooters, it's still a RESPECTABLE cameraphone."
"The Sony Ericsson Arc S chose NOT TO FIGHT NOISE TOO MUCH, which left some visible noise in the photos..."
Pretty contradictory statements, don't you think?
the nokia n8 still has more pixels at a higher quality though. n8 beats all of these phones hands down
petrikdebido, 11 Nov 2011hmm, I would say that the GS2 was better. Also I find the comment "but after 8 long (in t... moreYou are right. Its about time the chief editor of GSMArena should look back at his/her staff's works. Bias reviews means sending wrong information to the public which should be punished hard and in long term will affect people trust in future reviews from this website.
@ GSMArena team: Forget about all the silly comments posted herein. You have done a great job with this comparison. Simply put, it's as scientific, objective and exhaustive as a comparison could be. Chapeau.
The iPhone 4S camera is very good but not enough to be first in this "impartial" review...
Apparently Apple needs retrieval market after Samsung became in the first manufacturer/seller of phones in the world and of course GSMArena appears to help a little...
The question isn't what is the best camera, the question is, how much is paying Apple for its iPhone win in a review?
PS: I have an iPhone 4S, a Galaxy S II and N9, I can speak for them and in my opinion the best photos I've taken were with the GSII, second place with the N9 and last place is for my iPhone 4S.
hmm, I would say that the GS2 was better. Also I find the comment "but after 8 long (in tech terms) months on the market, it's time to cede that title." Doesn't this warrant that it should still be number 1 as it has been on the market for 8 months and it still is the best, not that just cause the iPhone is newer it should be nmber one now, kinda bias if you ask me.
I have both iphone 4s and galaxy s2. This review is legit. Next up is to do 12 megapixel shootout.
theres a blog here also@gsmarena regarding with cameras/videos of ip4s s2 and niko coolpix
and s2 is superior then nxt is nikon coolpix ip4s takes 3rd..
and now they saying ip4s is superior hahaha
gurum, 10 Nov 2011Now a days anyone can tell the conclusions of ur reviews GSMArena. U lost faith of millions of... moreWhy can't you accept that fact that iPhone 4S is the overall best for now? Which review site you saw that other smartphone beats iPhone 4S in terms of photo and video quality? Which review site you saw that iPhone is not one of the top smartphones? Almost all of the review sites in this world praises iPhone as one of topnotch smartphones overall. Just accept that fact and you'll be well.
I need to argue2.0, 10 Nov 2011No i know my stuff. The reason i said that is that alot of nokia fan boy always think because ... moreThe lens used by Nokia is the best in the business and lens definitely play major part in camera and video. Why would you or anyone bother with the score given by GSMArena? That score is a typical iPhone fanboy score. Anyone can gives their score to anything. N9 and SGS2 is still on top for me and iPhone 4S will come third or maybe even fourth.
Whatever...before i read this article i already know that GSMArena will choose iPhone 4S. No matter how good the other phones are, they will still chose iPhone. I don't see any superior quality in iPhone 4S that makes it better than SGS2 or N9. And as always, GSMArena will hardly put Nokia phones on their top ranking...TYPICAL...WHATEVER!!
iPhone 4s was predictable. I figured that the only reason the Galaxy S II would be second is because it's about a half year older. Likewise, the GS2's was better than the iPhone 4. However, a phone that only allows for 1080p would take a strike from most. Some of us don't have the time to upload 1080p. Others of us don't want to send big files. But, because it's Apple, it doesn't count as a strike, right? Amazing. What really surprise me is Nokia's poor showing in the matter.
