Cell Phone Cameras: Finding the Best

Cell Phone Cameras | Huawei Ascend | Cricket Wireless

From the BlackBerry Curve’s excellent camera, to the new Huawei Ascend, there are many camera features to consider and compare before making a selection. If you want a flash, that eliminates a lot of options, if you want to zoom optically, then that eliminates a few more. Getting what you want from a cell phone camera can sometimes be difficult, but if you do a little research, you can easily find what you are looking for online.


With 3.2 megapixels, video and zoom, the Sanyo ZIO by Kyocera is a great choice for most people. It functions easily, and makes excellent photographs that are easy to email to friends, and upload on Facebook. Another camera that has 3.2 megapixels, video, and zoom, is the Huawei Ascend, which is an exciting and new option from Cricket. Though the Blackberry Curve 8350 has two megapixels, most people don’t realize how great of a picture that can actually develop. With two megapixels, a photo would be the perfect size for quick uploads and downloads, as well as keeping a storage folder substantially less full. Newer models may boast more megapixels, but many phones offer cameras that produce pictures that are perfect for sharing and storing.


The Samsung Messenger Touch has similar camera options as the Blackberry, which can be great for casual photography. If you want to develop camera pictures into normal 4X6 photographs, though, the cameras with a 3.2 megapixel option are ideal.


The average photograph taken with good light or a flash at 3.2 megapixels will ideally print as a high-resolution 4X6 print. This is a lot of resolution for images that are only intended for the Internet, though. Most pictures uploaded onto Facebook, and sent through email, are about one megapixel. Anything larger than one megapixel, and the photograph is often too large to be stored on social media sites. If you want to print phone photos, getting a higher megapixel capability is the right choice. Most people who get 3.2 megapixels on their phone inevitably end up setting their camera to take pictures at one megapixel most of the time, but for those spontaneous, big events, 3.2 is a nice option to have.
