    Which fone would you get? I have no idea on mobiles at the mo, and the criteria i ask is that its got a perfect camera, simple to use, can be controled by buttons, and i will be with O2.

    I think auto rotate means when you tilt your phone to the side, the screen goes to landscape, not sure about the wifi....would presume it links to wifi networks for faster internet? Prob not tho

    Samsung pixon 12.

    I've got the pixon 8mp and the camera on that is very good so the 12mp is going to be a lot better!

    I've got an iPhone too, camera is pants!!

    EDIT: Just read the op again, pixon is a touchscreen no buttons!

    It doesn't work like that, and you only need 4mp to print on A4, who … It doesn't work like that, and you only need 4mp to print on A4, who prints bigger than that anyway. Go into carphone warehouse see what deals they do, might be able to get the red one aswell.



    Doesn't work like what?

    Anyway the screens will be the same size due to the phone being the same therefore the resolution on the 8mp photo is going to be worse than the resolution on the 12mp photo.

    dcx_badass;6892598

    A higher MP count doesn't always mean better photos.



    On the same phone with the same size screen it does. ;-)

    dcx_badass;6892623

    Yes because screen size controls the photo quality, and you want people … Yes because screen size controls the photo quality, and you want people to take you seriously now?



    Sorry David Bailey!! :roll:

    What's the deal with the bitchiness?

    I wasn't saying that screen size controlled the quality I was simply saying that if you've got the same size screen then obviously the pictures are going to be better when taken with a 12mp camera.

    Why wouldn't the 12mp camera be better? There are more megapixels in the same space so therefore the clarity will be better.

    dcx_badass;6892711

    But the sensor is the same size, so the pictures become noisier, more … But the sensor is the same size, so the pictures become noisier, more random colours, more graininess = worse picture. And on a phone screen that's say 320*240 pixels, a 2mp picture would look basically the same as a 10mp if you weren't zooming.



    So the pixon with an 8mp camera is better than the pixon with a 12mp camera?

    :roll:

    Why would Samsung even bother to bring it out?

    dcx_badass;6892784

    Because most people are suckers for higher numbers, print a pic from each … Because most people are suckers for higher numbers, print a pic from each on A4, or at standard photo size of like 5*4 or whatever it is, bet you can't tell the difference.



    Maybe on a small photo you wouldn't be able to but one would still be better than the other and you would be able to see that clearly on a larger print.

    I know my 8mp camera is better than all the cameras on all my other old phones!!
