One of the important factors to me, when choosing a new mobile phone, is the quality of the photos the camera renders. Of course, the higher the mega-pixel the better. But sometimes, across the various brands of phones, sometimes (I don’t know how and why), a lower mega-pixel camera can produce photos as good, if not better, a higher mega-pixel one.
I am now contemplating to get a new phone with physical keypads (oh, the bane of not being able to type out a text message swiftly while at the wheel! *shhh, don’t tell the traffic police that!*) but except for that detail, my LG Viewty is perfect for me. Love the camera feature.
Was thinking of the Nokia E66 which my lovely colleague *puke puke* is using currently but it only has a 3.2 MP camera! I do need a good camera phone for work as I sometimes need to take pictures discreetly.
Comparing the 2 pictures above, the Nokia seems to be the winner. Though it fails to capture the details of that ugly ornament I have in my home (truth be told, I hate it but grandma refuses to allow us to recycle it or put it away because a relative made it. And sadly, many more areas of my house are ‘adorned’ by these uglies. Blergh) but the details in the background are perfectly sharp. It doesn’t have a macro function so that’s probably why. On the other hand, the Viewty pic seems to be a little sharper for the ornament but the background… bleh.
Can anyone throw up any suggestions for phones with physical keypads and a good camera? I’m at a loss!
