The DIY cameraphone test

Published by Steve Litchfield at 9:33 UTC, November 25th 2010

Kudos to the web programmers and the rest of the team at GSM Arena, who have produced the really rather cool 'Photo Compare Tool'. Essentially they've taken a large number of recent phones and smartphones and shot the same three test photos with each (ISO 12233, Grey and Colour). You can then choose which three phones you'd like to compare using the drop-down pick lists and click any of the offered crops to show the full photo in the main window. Oh heck, just go try it, you'll see what I mean. Curiously, the Symbian-powered camera champions, the Nokia N86, Samsung i8910 and Sony Ericsson Satio aren't represented, but there's still plenty of other Symbian (and Maemo) interest. Full list below.

Thanks to deekbee for the heads-up, by the way.

With your chosen three phones selected, click on part of the main image to show that same detail for each of the other compared phones. It's a slick system and well worth a play.
