potato vs pureview


Saw an interesting conversation Steve Litchfield was having on twitter. Apparently it appears that someone’s been claiming to have the biggest sensor in a smartphone, Steve and co have some words to say on that matter.


What I’m finding more interesting is the fact that once year over when Nokia destroyed the megapixel race (by bringing out the best camera on paper and performance) some companies are starting to pay attention to other ways they can improve image QUALITY.

Ultrapixel vs PureView. 

There’s sensor size and then there’s pixel size. It’s very neat to see pixel size as a feature. Imagine if Nokia did that. Imagine a sensor as huge as the one found in the 808 but reduced to 12MP? Someone do the math of the pixel size? Haha. Of course, that would be a trade off of over sampling.

I wonder what we’ll see at MWC?

P.S. someone’s obviously liking tiles on the homescreen.
