The 8MP shooter on the Galaxy S II is one of the best cameras you can get on a mobile phone. Only the Galaxy Note and the iPhone 4S is better than the Galaxy S II, we can certainly vouch for that, but how does it compare with the 5MP camera on the Galaxy Nexus?
Android Central attempts to answer that question and pitted the two devices against each other. So which on is better?
Sorry to burst your bubbles Galaxy Nexus users, the camera on the Galaxy S II better in virtually every aspect, including detail, colour reproduction and noise management. With ICS coming the Galaxy S II within a few months, you can expect the camera to be even better with the possible inclusion of Zero Shutter Lag and other software enhancements.
How much better is the Galaxy S II compared to the Galaxy Nexus? You can read the full review here or you can head on over to after the jump to see test shots taken using the two devices.

Update: It seems that we have offended a few Nokia N8 enthusiasts out there with our findings. In pursuit of the truth, we want to set the record straight, and so we have a proposition for the N8 enthusiasts who’ve expressed their opinions about this post. We have a proposition for you. Is the Nokia N8 still the best camera phone out there? Let’s settle this once and for all. Head on over to after the jump for details.
We’re just one week away from the launch of the iPhone 4S in Malaysia. Aside from an uprated processor that’s now dual-core and very chatty Siri, the biggest improvement on the new iPhone is its camera.
With a Sony-sourced 8MP backlit sensor and improved optics, Apple says the new camera on its latest iPhone offers performance that rivals most dedicated point-and-shoot cameras, but is this claim founded?
Naturally, we’re curious to find out ourselves if the camera on the iPhone 4S is as good as Apple claims it to be, and so we’ve assemble some of the best 8MP smartphone shooters we could get our hands on along with the 12MP Nokia N8 for good measure and went out on a photowalk; taking pictures and videos using these devices in various situations to find out which smartphone available in the market right now has the best camera overall.
We compare the iPhone 4S with the Samsung Galaxy Note, Galaxy S II, Motorola RAZR, Sony Ericsson Xperia ray and Nokia N8. Follow us to after the jump to see the sample shots and videos as well as our verdict on which smartphone has the best camera right now.

So we know that the Galaxy S II is coming to town with Maxis. It’s a safe bet to think that the launch will be within this month. So while we wait for the actual launch let’s find out more about this dual-core Sammy that a lot of people have been waiting for.
Check out the video for a very good and detailed comparison of the 8MP camera on the Galaxy S II against the iPhone 4’s 5MP main camera. Some may argue that this is an unfair comparison but we’ll tell you that judging a camera’s performance mainly on its MP count is not really a good idea. You’re not getting the whole picture.
The video looks beyond MP count and goes into details like colour production, saturation and video performance amongst other things. It is well worth six minutes of your time.
