The sensor size of camera phones are so small that the quality of a digital camera so much better since the sensor size much larger and the electronics much more advanced.
The DLRs are has so much bigger sensors that it is pointless to compare.
The compact digital cameras already have much larges sensors and lenses and that itself enough to outperform the phones. The much more advances electronics just increases the difference.
A relatively good compact camera is about 400-500 USD.
(DSLR 1500 and up)
You pay for performance and quality when you get a digital camera - a phone will not produce similar quality.
That is the reason that today a 12mp phone camera is pointless. Much better to have a 5-8mp phone with great lens and less dense sensor - better quality.
12mp sensor more dense producing more noise and artifact with out the benefit of useful resolution.
For normal size print (8.5x11 or A4 - people rarely print this size or larger) 5-8mp is more than enough resolution.
12mp is just a PR/ / SALES gimmick without merit - actually it has disadvantage since with the same technology an 8mp sensor would produce a much better image!!!!!!!
Anonymous, 11 May 2009iam sorry Kal, i have diff opinion with you about Video resolution..my opinion, size is relate... moreIf you compute pixels per inches on screen there are more pixel count on phones than on LAPTOP LCD and TV sets.
So if you downscale 720p HD recording and play it on phones, your eyes wont detect any downscaling at all... But samsung should must not tell HD playback because its not the right term...
S.E inside sad Idou will have 1500Mah battery, and is final. 1500Mah, is really good, I hope is true. And he sad the phone will be make by Sony Ericsson Japan(this thing is not new)
nick, 11 May 2009isnt the idea that you can remove the HD videos off the phone and play them back on your compu... moreI think it is not yet right for phone to record video in HD... as I read the comments on this forum (http://innovator.samsungmobile...=1&curPage=1)
they said the recording on HD is crappy/lagging specifically the sound....

the videos arent just restricted to the phone are they...
might not be funny to everyone, but I am actually following this thread and typing on my Idou. There are no black stripes when viewing video if you wonder. If you like s60 and SE this is your phone. Cheers
Kal, 11 May 2009Well then we will have to live with it. This section will be like that till we hear something ... moreiam sorry Kal, i have diff opinion with you about Video resolution..my opinion, size is related with video resolution...resolution is about pixel and size so if idou screen is 360 x 640 resolution and the screen size is 3.5" you will have :
65829pxls / 1" of screen.
more pixel is better...smaller screen size is better
then if idou uses VGA video resolution (480 x 640) so for video, you will get :
87771 pxls / 1" of screen
87771 pxls is too big for 65829 pxls so there will be useless 21942 pxls...
there will be no black bar when you play video.
how about with omnia HD..
for screen, 360 x 640 with 3.7 " you will get :
62270 pxls / 1" of screen so idou screen has more pixel than omnia HD screen...but Omnia HD video resolution is much bigger than idou VGA video resolution but it is useless if you watch HD video on 360 x 640 screen, HD video resolution is too big for omnia HD screen resolution...
do you know if you zoom qvga(320 x 240) video resolution to 14" screen so the video will be streched, there will be bad pixeled screen and blur.it means,the size does matter..
this is my opinion, it doesnt mean your opinion is wrong..ok
Vikrant Singh, 11 May 2009I have many mobiles. because I am working in All types of mobile Company.Like Nokia Sony Erics... morese is better than nokia/samsung in some areas and nokia/samsung r betta dan se in udas.question is..how many strengths nokia/sam hav ova se n vice versa? who has mor? and examing each strength which 1s appeal to u most?then make ur choice

Kal, 11 May 2009Video resolution is not directly related to the physical size of the screen. You can not measu... moreYou do have a point there. If that's the case, then the playback on the idou won't see as pleasing as i wished it to be. But still i am sure it can play downloaded video in a very nice manner. And there's still something that bugs me. What if sony ericsson, assuming it really uses exmor, planned to release the software which enable it to capture video in hd mode next year. Just like the smile shutter on c905. It's really surprising. But still that's only my assumption.
Anyway, hopefully idou will use exmor as i really dig it's camera. If it fails to deliver, i believe i've stated this in my previous post, i will abandon the idea of getting it. But then there's this intuition which tells me idou will deliver. Only downside would probably be the jack.
general, 11 May 2009O.o Thanks for the details. It seems i've misjudged you a little. Sorry. But i won't take back... moreVideo resolution is not directly related to the physical size of the screen. You can not measure it in inches. Take your desktop for example. You can set different resolutions. Things will be much sharper with higher resolution provided they have same aspect ration.
Now here I have a confusion.
For Omnia HD, it can record at 1280x720(16:9) and the screen is exactly half, 640x360. So you are not losing anything. Watching videos on it's 3.7" screen will be brilliant.
Same goes for Pixon. It captures at WVGA 800x480 and it's screen resolution is half at 400x240. It will be great for it's 3.2" screen.
Now, if you believe this SE-INSIDE guy then IDOU records at VGA 640x480 which is 4:3 format but it can playback at 720x480. But then IDOU's screen is 16:9 widescreen 640x360. Things doesn't quite add up. You will get black bars on both sides watching videos captured by idou. That's not quite a good experience.
Correct me if I'm wrong.
Anonymous, 11 May 2009okay i will agree with you but do you know "opinion versus opinion" is never end ? you wont... moreUsually I don't disagree unless I have some source or a link or logic to prove my point. In fact I expect the same from others. This EXMOR issue is such that one can't really claim and one can't really disagree. If you claim I will say where is your source and then you will counter attack by saying where is my source that it wont use exmor. We both have no official statement. We just need to have more patience. If not then we all have to live with this war or words. And it will be upto the readers to judge who is right who is wrong.
Any idea how powerful the idou's processor gonna be?
Curious if its laggy or fast.
kal, 11 May 2009The major problem I see here is that you guys still believe that this pages belongs to SE FANS... moreokay i will agree with you but
do you know "opinion versus opinion" is never end ? you wont get right statement from it
i mean if i write some comment about idou will use exmor then you disagree with me pls give your complain to me with a fact, not by your opinion..opinion is never wrong except you give me the truth like official statement from the company that idou wont use exmor but if you havent a fact to prove my opinion is wrong so you cant offense my opinion with your opinion..there is no point from it so there will be useless fight at here
