Top 5 Camera Phones of 2012

Gone are the days when mobile phone were used for calling purpose only. Mobiles are the tiny computers in our hands. In this post we will discuss about the best camera equipped with a phone.

One has rightly said that the best camera is the one which is with you. We cannot carry DSLRs or point-to-shoot camera wherever we go but mobile phones are our necessity.

GSMArena did a ‘blind’ test of 5 mobile phones and one camera to test the best shots. And undoubtedly, Nokia 808 PureView won (Thats a camera equipped with a mobile phone). The results were shocking as the HTC One X scored a big ZERO in this test.

1. Nokia 808 PureView: It had to win afterall its a 41 MP Camera with mobile phone capabilities. Nokia could have made the deal even better by offering Windows Phone 7.5 OS instead of that out-of-market Symbian OS. Buying a mobile phone with Rs. 32k price tag is not a good idea.

2. Apple iPhone 4S: iPhone 4S can better be said as the runner up as Olympus PEN E-PL2 isn’t a mobile phone bye a point-to-shoot camera.

3. Samsung Galaxy S3: The Android beast, the current hot-favorite, loved and hated by masses and being sold as hot cupcakes over the world managed to grab the 3rd position.

4. Nokia N8: Unbelievable, N8’s camera > HTC One X? :O I have heard a lot good about One X’s camera capabilities.

5. HTC One X: Shocking, Zero for One X. But still better than the mobiles not mentioned in the list. IMO, One X’s camera isn’t that bad.
