Apple iPhone 4 vs. Motorola Droid X camera

September 25, 2010

iPhone 4 sample pictures (slide show):

Droid X sample pictures (slide show):

Arguably, the Apple iPhone 4 and Motorola Droid X are the current flagship smartphones for AT&T and Verizon. Both are multimedia powerhouses, and feature impressive cameras, at least on paper!

I’ve been playing with the cameras on both devices extensively for almost 3 months, and the resulting pictures and videos are indeed excellent, yet there are pros and cons to each phone. More after the break…

Burning Man goodness, and more

September 15, 2010

So I’m back from 10 days in the desert, playing and working, and I snapped a whole bunch of pictures, as usual (slide show)…

I used phone cameras for all shots, including the Samsung Memoir, the Samsung Epic 4G, and the Apple iPhone 4, with no post-processing!

While I was away, Apple launched the new iPod nano, and I received Samsung Fascinate and Motorola Charm review units (videos).

In the next few weeks. I will be attending Mobilize and CTIA here in San Francisco, so ping me if you also plan to go :)


Samsung Epic 4G camera, and more

August 28, 2010

So you’re probably wondering what happened to my regular camera reviews. Well fear not, I’m still working on them :)

I’m off to Burning Man as usual (look for me at Center Camp Cafe most evenings), and I’ll be taking lots of pictures!

I’d hoped to test a Nokia N8 prototype this year, but that fell through, so I’ll be using the wonderful Samsung T929 (Memoir) again…

I’m also bringing my Nexus One, my iPhone 4, the Samsung Epic 4G, and my Motorola F3 (aka. the “zombie apocalypse” phone).

Follow me on Twitter, and check out my Epic 4G sample pictures (slide show) and sample video (after the break).
