    From looking at the array of photos we have from forum members I'd say the one takes decent shots! Not great, and not terrible, but decent. Which honestly is a little disappointing to say the least. But I'll save my final judgement to when I've actually snapped a few pics myself. I'm a firm believer that it also matters who's taking the pics, and it's sometimes the photographer that makes the difference from time to time.

    I will say the above pic of the Breitling is very good compared to some of the others.

    I'd say you've summed it up pretty well. It is capable of taking superb shots close up and colour wise it reproduces very similar to what you see (without tinkering with settings) sometimes when taking shots of things further away, in dodgy lighting or with a moving hand it can take a few shots to get the one you want. This camera has a bit of a steeper learning curve for those who are just used to pointing and shooting but it's not a bad camera, just takes time to get used to it... I'm still getting there :D

    I've come to still expect this from phones, simply due to sensor and lens sizing. I'm known to shrug cell phone cameras off as long as they take semi decent pics anyway because my wife and I do photography as a hobby, so anything that is worth photographing, we take a Canon 5D MKIII around to shoot with... but in a pinch a cell should do a decent job. It seems to me that the phone, just like all the others i've used, really struggles even in moderate lighting, and to get anything worth while the light has to be spilling in (Again, lending back to the sensor/lens).

    I have all the AT&T phones and I swap constantly, going back and forth. I normally carry about 4 phones in my bag lol, all active.

    Right now I carry the Note II, Lumia 920, BlackBerry Z10 and the iPhone 5. (the iPhone is the only permanent fixture).

    The hardest thing to give away from the note, hard to believe, is the stupid S-Pen. I absolutely love that gadget.

    I didn't see this post until now, but I will try that when I go to take some more.

    As I ended up going into work today, I couldn't take the pictures I planned on taking.
    I did take a quick snap of the cathedral in my city though :)

    Auto-exposure on overcast days seems like it needs a little user help.

    That's a beautiful phone. I think that alone makes it better then a plastic S4.

    Wish it was easier to focus with macro mode on.

    That being said... Which pic do you think is better?

    I like pic 1 better as it seems to be sharper, though from (seemingly) further away.

    Again, I like pic 1 better. It seems sharper, though the color in #2 is richer.

    There are a lot of jpeg compression artifacts in both, so, hard to say.

    The second one seems to have fewer, so I'd choose that one.

    From the classic "The Picture's Bride"
    "But it's so simple. All I have to do is divine from what I know of you: are you the sort of man who would put the artifacts into his own picture or his enemy's? Now, a clever man would put the artifacts into his own picture, because he would know that only a great fool would reach for what he was given. I am not a great fool, so I can clearly not choose the picture in front of you. But you must have known I was not a great fool, you would have counted on it, so I can clearly not choose the picture in front of me...."

    It's inconceivable!!!

    I read several days ago some stores were already selling the phone. I think they didn't read the memo of when the phones were supposed to be sold.

    Interesting that we moved toward macro shots.

    I own a watch collecting forum and to be honest, 90% of the photos I take with a camera phone will be watch/wrist shots so the ability to focus close is critical to me.

    I have dismissed many great phones because they were not capable of taking a good watch photo lol.

    Here is one from yesterday.

    Here is another example of before and after.

    This is a loaner car the shop gave me while my Smart was getting serviced.

    That's a sick watch and nice shot with the camera. If you don't mind can you PM me the model number and cost for that?
