The Nokia N8 is the first Symbian^3 device of Nokia to enter the market this year. It’s a high-end device offering wide range of multimedia features yet an affordable smartphone over its offered features. It has the 12 MP camera loaded with Carl Zeiss optics and Xenon Flash, and it can record videos in HD (72op @ 25fps). The N8 includes the biggest camera sensor in the whole mobile industry and against the other compact cameras.
On the other hand, the iPhone 4 is a smartphone with 5 MP camera and LED flash whilst it records in HD @30fps. The thing that Apple should be proud of iPhone 4’s camera is the BSI or the back-illuminated sensor.
The thing is, these devices have different pixel count, aspect ratio, and type of sensor, but by looking to the results of the Endgadget comparison we would tell which is better. See the photos below.
By looking to these few sample shots we would see that the iPhone 4 shots are over saturated compare to Nokia N8. You would notice the over saturation especially on the 3rd photo sample. Whilst the Nokia N8 shots are natural and really reflects on what are the real subjects.
Nonetheless, it’s my personal assessment on the comparison, but you’re personal say is always welcome.
