Nokia 808: With 41MP camera and Nokia’s proprietary PureView technology, the latest Nokia phone launched at MWC 2012 is by far the best camera phone ever produced!
iPhone 4S: This 8-megapixel shooter from Apple had, by far, been the best mobile camera available in the market. Sharp pictures, great clarity, and can awesome performance even in low light conditions.
Nokia N8: Nokia N8 is termed as a 12-megapixel camera with phone capabilities. It also packs the biggest image sensor embedded in a phone yet, Carl Zeiss optics, 4:3 display ratio and great video capabilities too.
Samsung Galaxy Note: Off all the Android phones available in the market, this phone (or phablet?) has the best quality sensors that can pack in 8 megapixels of detail in every shot.
Samsung Galaxy S II: The Galaxy S II has a great 8MP camera and the ability to take photos and videos at varying resolutions, to manually choose the ISO/exposure/white balance/color options, as well as various scene settings such as beach/portrait/fireworks/sunset/text/etc.
HTC Evo 3D: Two 5-megapixel auto-focus cameras with dual LED flash sit pretty on the rear side of the HTC EVO 3D, which of course, provides the handset the ability to capture 3D photos and videos. The interface of the camera is HTC’s standard, with a few more special effects and tweaks under the hood.
Nokia Lumia 800: Helped by a fairly wide f2.2 aperture on the lens that lets in more light and produces a shallower depth of field, the Lumia 800’s 8MP camera can produce some fairly sharp, pleasing macro shots and handles high contrast situations more gracefully.
Motorola Razr XT912: XT912’s 8MP camera shoots photos with a good level of detail, but it’s not very strong at low-light shots. There’s very little shutter lag between photos without flash, but photos with flash are slow to take and save.
Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S: Sony Ericsson has included an 8.1MP Exmor R camera sensor, which creates bright and vivid images. They’re perhaps a little too bright in places, because the sensor seems to exaggerate colours a little, like we’ve seen with most Sony Ericsson phones this year.
HTC Desire HD: The Desire HD manages to collect some telling detail in its images. Noise-masking blur is distributed very well, and works especially well if you can content yourself with downsizing the images from the max 8 megapixel size. All in all, a highly competent camera that dealt with what we threw at it admirably.
