5 Best Camera Smartphone’s

In today’s era, when people want to carry their special moments with them, camera is the one which will come to anyone’s mind instantly. Smartphone biggies have been packing in higher megapixels lenses into their smart phones thereby adding bunch of other cool features that would make clicking images with these phones easy, fun and entertaining. A lot of emphasis has been laid in making sure that it is not only important to capture images, but also to share them. In addition to this companies are offering free cloud space and integration with social networks to make the user experience unified. Here’s my list of five best smart phones with the best camera experience, currently available in the market.

Nokia PureView 808

This Nokia’s latest Symbian device was a big eye opener at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2012, and obvious reasons were it packed in a 41 MP sensor camera with Carl Zeiss lens. Nokia PureView 808 captures videos in Full HD (1080p) videos at 30fps. For all those photographers who don’t want images to have jerks at all, Nokia sells an additional tripod mount adapter, which is optional to choose.

Nokia N8

Before the announcements of Nokia PureView 808 the Nokia N8 enjoyed the title of being the best camera smart phone from the Finnish handset giant. The bold letters mean something. Nokia N8 comes with a 12MP auto-focus lens (Carl Zeiss optics) and xenon flash. It has a 1/1.83-inch image sensor and the images that are clicked through this phone are much crispier and have life like colors However, the flash on board is not the best one would find on a camera smart phone. The Nokia N8 captures 720p videos at 25fps.


HTC One X comes along an 8 MP rear camera. HTC one X has a dedicated image processor, which facilitates capturing images at a much faster speed. On a continuous shooting mode, captures up to 4 fps. The smart phone comes with a wide f2.0 aperture through which one can capture nice images even in low-light conditions. The camera can capture 1080p full HD videos at 30fps. HTC One X has an integrated 1.3MP sensor on the front. The feature is that it can capture photos while recording video.

Samsung Galaxy S III

Samsung has captured major part of the smart phone market. Galaxy S III was much rumored and most awaited phone. It also packs in an 8 MP camera .While working on burst mode one can capture 20 shots in one go with around 6 shots per second. The company has added HDR mode to S III, which takes multiple shots at various exposure values and combines them to create a single image. Samsung Galaxy S III comes with 1.9MP front camera. The ultra-fast processor that powers the device, makes recording smoother as expected, however the auto-focus was slightly at the lower side. Galaxy S III also facilitates tap-to-focus while recording video, thus capturing even better videos. The only missing part is on the optical side, Galaxy S III only supports a maximum aperture of f/2.6, which means, and Galaxy S III will be slightly on the lower side in low-lighting conditions when compared with HTC One X.

Apple iPhone 4S
Apple iPhone 4s comes with an 8 megapixel camera with LED flash. The images captured through this apple product have beautiful color detailing and the f/2.4 aperture clicks one’s precious moments anytime and anywhere. The camera also records full HD (1080p) videos and has got other functionalities like touch focus and Geo tagging.

The Blackberry Porsche P9981

Porsche met Blackberry back in October with their P 9981 concept, an interesting looking device that is essentially just a standard Blackberry that has been beautified with Porsche styling. For many, you will find that there is little reason to own this model, either because of price, or just because you can get a better phone for even less.
While I will never own one, we did manage to get a look thanks to the folks at Techno Buffalo, who was sent a working unit for review.  Judging by the video, it seems to have pretty good build quality, but probably not enough to warrant the $2400 USD price tag.
For those that aren’t familiar with it, the P 9981 is essentially just a Blackberry Bold 9900, and features a 1.2GHz processor, 8GB storage, NFC support, micro SD, 2.8” display, and 5MP camera. For those that like style and have the money to burn, it certainly is an attractive looking unit.

Concept of Tablet XO-3

We’ve already told you about electronically magazine Infinite Book. The project OLPC (One Laptop per Child) created something similar – tablet XO-3. This computer is about the size of envelope but have a lot of modern features. It has a webcam on the back side and ability to shoot video with intuitive control. Main substrate of LCD-display is made from plastic that will protect it from damage. Ring in the corner of a tablet is made to hold it with comfort or hang up when it’s not in use. There will be used the display Pixel Qi, it is suitable for reading at bright sun and is equipped with a power saving mode. XO-3 will be equipped with processor ARM, the device will be waterproof, but its thickness will be 0.65 cm. This unusual tablet should appear in 2012 and its value will be just $75. 
At the core of the new tablet will be an 8-inch standard or Pixel Qi sunlight-readable display with a resolution of 1024 x 768, and 500MB of RAM. It will come with Android and Linux operating system support although the model we played with was running Linux. Our time was brief with the device, however enough to determine that it won't be that fast, but that's not the point here. The point is all about empowering children and adults from developing countries and giving them the tools to allow them to use the Internet to learn. With that in mind one of the key apps the organization was keen to show us was a Wikipedia app that made accessing the online encyclopedia very easy. Although no official date has been given as yet as to when we can expect to see the XO-3 in the wild, a spokesman for the company has told Pocket-lint that the tablet could be put into full production with the product in people's hands in less than 5 months once they get orders. Although no official price has been decided yet, the XO-3 is expected to cost just $100.
