What Android phone has the best camera?

October 12Hits:1

I am going to buy an Android mobile phone and I want to be sure it has good camera (and video camera).

What phones do you recommend that have good camera?

Answers

You might want to check out some reviews on Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 (e.g. TechRadar, Androinica, Amateur Photographer), which offers 4.7mm (35e: 35mm) f/2.8 camera with image stabilization. In comparison to iPhone 4, the X10 seems to do better in exposure metering and color reproduction, but photos have less detail.

Xperia Arc (and its minor improvement, Arc S) is marketed as an improvement upon X10, sporting a backlit Exmor R sensor (crop factor 7) and 4mm (35e: 28mm) f/2.4 lens, but the reviews I've read (e.g. ePHOTOzine, All About Symbian, phoneArena) give me impression that while it's slightly better in low light, it's more average in moderate to good light. Compared against iPhone 4, detail reproduction seems to have improved, but colors are less vibrant.

Another Android phone touted for its camera is LG Optimus 2X (Phandroid, TechRadar). Shows duller colors and some blur in comparison to iPhone 4.

Annoying thing about those camera phones is that none of them has any protection for its lens.

Disclaimer: I don't have any of the phones, but have been thinking about getting one myself.

I have a Droid X, I might be a skilled photographer, compared the image I got with my Droid X vs. HTC incredible, samsung fascinates, iPhone 3GS, iphone 4.

Droid X has the best camera in my opinion. (Droid X 2 is probably good too)

  • Dual LED flash
  • mechanical shutter
  • Simply good optic in the small lens on the phone

Also, it takes awesome HD video too (in 720p)

I found that it's: - incredibly sharp for close up (macro) photos - portraits - landscape (although because of small lens does not capture detail out too far)

My wife just got an HTC Sensation. I've been very impressed with the camera. You can see some examples here. The only thing that it doesn't have is a dedicated shutter button. I think that they have addressed that in the latest version, but I haven't played with that one yet.

It is not yet released but Panasonic (aka Lumix) is planning to release a phone/camera hybrid which has optical zoom and 12MP count. I am not sure if the lens is Leica (like some other Lumix cameras) but it looks promising.

I shall add the model number once I found where I read about it.
