03 April, 2011
There has been a lot of speculation about the iPhone 5 but the camera department has rarely been mentioned. Well now we know its manufacturer and resolution. Previously there was...

OMG!!! I never had anything nice to say about iPhone as I'm a dedicated and loyal BlackBerry user. But I have a problem now, my carrier contract plan needs to be renewed in October and I also get a new phone. Both the new BlackBerry Storm 3 aka Monaco (a very powerful and interesting device) as well as the iPhone 5 will be in South Africa by then, and now I have to choose??!!! This sucks!!!!

I like to use the Exmor R lens in the next iphone camera sensor lens.

  • SONY fan

this is unfair! the APPLE company must make their own phone cameras. they just can't beat the quality of a SONY camera lenses. of course, it's a Japanese company. so i love them. i am a Sony lover and i hate apple. i hate samsung as well. i patronize sony and i have bravias at home and audio players.

AMK, 05 Apr 2011android is the best OS out there! The idiotic OS is amazing? R... moreCan you give me some examples of these apps?

I read this article and it just sums up one of the reasons that the android Market is so bad

Oh and I particularly like this quote "Google needs to be a little more evil. They need to be far more controlling"­es-not-available-on-android-we-have-the-carriers­-to-thank/

Don't get me wrong I like more power (more power=more ePeen)

But there comes a point where u need to realise that it's better to manage what you have first before you add more

Go ahead because you both have no way of competing with Nokia's best cameraphones lolz

Trying hard, copy cats hahaha

bellybelle, 06 Apr 2011Sony is No. 1 in camera modules, and even with sound/audio porta... moreI have an iphone 4, and I can't understand what the hype was about this expensive junk. I actually bought this with an unlimited data plan, but the features of iphone 4 are not exactly inspiring -- no radio, less free apps on appstore, no video call to other Nokia phones (my friends own Nokias), and the WORST is NO LIVE WALLPAPER!! How can a $700 phone like this have no LWP? All I have are pictures as my background... wow. so this is what HIGH TECH means.. yipee

I guess I just have to be thankful atleast I have the retina screen, and the all-glass body of iphone 4. Everything inside it, is something all other ANDROIDS have either equalled or surpassed. Now I know what a FLAT TIRE FEELS LIKE... bummer

Sony is No. 1 in camera modules, and even with sound/audio portables. They just sorta "got lost" in the mid 2000s, when they stuk to Symbian. Thank goodness, they switched to ANDROID.

My next phone now will 100% be an SE Neo.. Cant wait for it to be released here-- can't wait for the full review too.. :)

johnny, 05 Apr 2011although the great amount of apps and quality specs apple i phon... moreI agree with you. I think we are so caught up with their Big brand name & when they had the first I-phone, everyone wants it, not only because it's manufacture by Apple but it has lots of apps that no other smartphones offer, except for Blackberry (but I guess Blackberry is more for business people...maybe not...but apple has more fun apps compare to Blackberry). I'm a Blackberry person. But seriously even Blackberry need to step up their game.

I've been using I-phone & Blackberry for the last 3 / 4 years, I don't even look at other smartphones. I used to be a Nokia person. Now, I don't even bother to look at other phones. Maybe it's time to be smart & look for other smartphones & stop wasting money.

Please share if you have any recommendation.

JK, 05 Apr 2011May I know why all of the iphone has no flash?Yeah, I'm with you on this one! I bought few applications that has Flash availability, but gosh...I really wasted my money. The resolutions / pictures are unbelievably shocking.

I use Blackberry as well, I thought Apple should have better Camera resolutions compare to blackberry, considering I-phone is the type of phone with more of "entertainment" (may not be the right word) applications, but the Blackberry Bold 9700 with only 3.2MP Camera is way much better than the I-phone 4.

Does anyone actually pay attention to what Pixals are? Everyone seems to be Hyped up by the prospect of 8MP rather than 5MP. Pixals are mearly the number of dots per square inch. Given the hanset will only have a max 4.5 inch screen there will not be much difference in resolution unless the pictures are prined and enlarged greatly. The actual importance is the flash and lense implimented, creating a sharper and clearer image. Also the speed at which a photo can be taken, the faster it can do this prevents less distortion from moving objects.

oh my God
I can't wait any more for iphone5.
8 megapixel camera with A5 cpu and ios5 and maybe with a smart cover and thiner than iphone4 with 4" retina screan and etc.
Just i hope that the new iphone has a different styl than the last one.

AMK, 04 Apr 2011hey, can u name any upcoming SE phone having dual core?Does a phone need dual core???

I mean seriously, your average Joe couldn't even tell you what Dual Core actually does, and do they care....NO....

Only 40 year old virgins worry about technical stuff and cream over dual core! Biggest over hyped nonsense I have ever heard....dual core this and dual core that!
