    Ok, Here are a few shots taken using both my Epic 4G and my Evo 4G.

    Notes:
    1) I'm not a photographer
    2) I used Vignette on the Evo 4G
    3) I used both the Stock camera and Vignette for the Epic
    4) The Epic pictures were taken while there was more sunlight out, the Evo was more in optimum lighting.
    5) Neither has been retouched in any way

    Are you sure the lens on the EVO is cleaned? Also, is it focused correctly?

    Either way, EPIC wins this round. Hands down.

    I ... don't see what you mean at all. But then again the photos are so different, it's difficult to compare them.

    that's weird. I thought the EVO's were better. In every test I've performed myself, the EVO is also better. But not by much. Both cameras are fine for a phone.

    well, i can certainly say that the lighting on the Epic seems to be better (more accurate) when looking at the dr pepper cans. nice to see some Epic shots finally! that deserves a thanks lol

    The Evo pictures look more washed out apart from the sky, which I think looks better in the Evo pictures....but everything else about the pictures, I'd say the Epic pictures look crisper and have much better color. Just a shame you can't see the blue sky in the Epic pictures. I guess it could be the exact time the pictures were taken though.

    The photo of the can is night and day difference.

    Was the flash used in any of the pictures?

    I appreciate the effort, but's hard to say if these photos are suitable for making comparisons since they were taken at totally different times of day (look at the shadows). They are under vastly different lighting conditions, which is hugely important factor when it comes to photography. Lighting is everything.

    My gut feeling is that the Epic still has the better camera. My Evo's pictures are only good for taking self-portraits to serve as motivational reminders to get back in shape and get some sun. They make great 'Before' photos.

    I don't want to flood this thread with tons of Epic camera pictures vs Evo camera pictures... so I'm just going to post some links instead. The more I look at them, the more I think each camera offers it's own pros and cons. I like them both equally. My photos below aren't 1:1 matches, but each offer a good idea as to the camera's quality.

    Epic pictures:
    Outside shot 1
    Outside shot 2
    Outside shot 3
    Indoor shot 1 - cats
    Indoor shot 2 - cats

    Evo pictures:
    Outside shot 1
    Outside shot 2
    Indoor shot 1 - cats
    Indoor shot 2 - cats

    Looking at the these I think that Epic Stock has the best shots so far, they do not look watched out and the colors look more natural. The evo (mine as well) tends to make photos a bit blueish so I always have to manually set the white balance and color on it or use Vignette.

    The evo is focusing on just the can in the pic of the Dr pepper. Bad comparison. Put auto focus on instead

    looking at those photos, i'd say they are on par with one another and that, my friends, i'm very happy about.

    indoor shots definitely look cooler on the Evo vs warmer/more natural on the Epic. still both really good though

    i agree about them being taken at totally different times of day. didn't notice that so thanks for pointing it out.

    i would like to see a photo from one phone and one from the other in the exact same position, time of day, etc

    I think my problem with the Evo pics is that the brightness seems to be really blown out in outdoor shots (from other pics I've seen outside of this thread as well) and the blue tint. Videos on the Evo also tend to be blown out when taken outside. With my phones, I tend to take pics very "spur of the moment", so having to adjust the white balance, EV settings would be annoying to me in order to not get the bluish tint or too much brightness that the Evo seems to give its pics. I consider a phone's camera as more of a quick "point and shoot" camera that you shouldn't have to mess around with to get consistently nice shots. If I wanted to mess around, I'd bring my DSLR with me. :D

    The colors from the Epic look to be more natural.

    The Evo seems to be more detailed. If you look at the grass on the outdoor shots, you can see more details of the grass. However like everyone pointed out...the Epic colors are more natural.

    Taken with the Evo in pitch black. I had a second Evo light up the scene for the shot to get less flash effect. This is also before I learned how to use the Evo stock camera. (Do not push the camera button on the screen, select and hold the area of focus on the screen and hold for a good picture.) Not a comparison, just to show that GOOD pictures can be taken with the Evo. Now I have been playing with Vignette. Great Program.

    Evo picture: Sun on grass

    Epic picture: No sun on grass.


    Of course you can see more detail in a lighted room than a dark room no?
