Is that a low light shot. It looks much better than the average phone picture.
Yup taken in a pub, so quite low light.
I would love to buy this, but Symbian? Really?
I honestly don't understand why people think it's an inferior OS, I know that it's app store is quite barren but other than that it is truly fantastic. The only down side for some people I can think of it is its complexity, but for me personally that's a huge bonus.
Honestly now I'm not trying to be a fan boy but can you guys give me some reasons why it's not as good? My experience with other OS's is limited but just from some quick comparisons between my old phone (Nokia E73) to my friends phones, one has Windows Phone 7 (Not sure what phone exactly I just know it's a Samsung), and the other has a Samsung Galaxy SII so Android, mine always seemed to come out in a lot of areas. My mail actually gets downloaded to my phone so I can access it even when offline (I remember my friend with the SII said this was not the case for her), my maps are built into my phone so when driving I never need to worry about roaming charges, and my battery life was better than either of their phones as the OS is so miserly.
The only bad thing was the browser
But considering the phone was originally released in 2009 it's hard to fault it for not being super modern in that respect.
Megapixels don't mean gooseberry fool when it comes to the quality of photos. You could have a 200mp camera and the sensor is still gooseberry fool (which this one will be) even 12mp is enough together with a nice sized sensor and a quality lens.
This is just a gimmick to sucker people into buying it, thinking they have some omg 41mp amazing camera when in reality it still has a meh lens that you can't change and a mobile phone sized sensor. Really stupid basically -if you want a good camera, buy a camera.
Your right they don't matter it's what you do with them, the phone uses oversampling to combine several pixels into one. The result is super clear images even in low light as each 5MP photo is actually made from a 41MP photo. Also the lens is Carl Zeiss so not the standard crappy cell phone lens.
But you're right I'm sure it's not as good as some dedicated DSLR but those things are 1) expensive and 2) bulky, this thing probably takes better photo's then my Cannon Elph point and shoot and saves me the trouble of carrying around two things.
Edit: I also recorded a video on it as my friend and I went to some bar that had a live band playing after the sandwich and I'm uploading that now as well. The music was deafening as it was a small place but it comes out great on the phone. I remember reading that the phone can record sound up to 140Db clearly and it does it in stereo as well. Once it finishes processing on Youtube I'll post it here as well.
