Image Quality – High End vs. Low End vs. 10 Years Ago

I recently reviewed the qualities of a entry level Android phone available at less than 150 euros and overall came away quite impressed. Here's a quick follow up on how image quality compares to one of the best camera smartphones, the Nokia N8. I've included two comparisons in this post one image taken at close range and the other showing more distant objects. It's of course not surprising that the image quality is lightyears away from the N8, even when only zooming into the image up to the resolution allowed by the 3 megapixel camera. But I don't think that's the point I want to make here. Have a look at image quality of a picture taken with a high end 600 Euro smartphone from back in 2002 (the Nokia 7650) and then come back and re-evaluate the entry level 3 megapixel camera quality 🙂
