Let’s all stop kidding ourselves. The Nokia N8 is the best god-damn camera phone out there

The iPhone 4S may be the new kid on the block but the Nokia N8 that’s over a year old is still the big daddy when it comes to taking spectacular pictures — no exceptions. Just take a look at these snaps! If we didn’t know any better we’d say that they all came from a DSLR or at the very least, a very capable prosumer point-and-shooter.

Pity we can’t say the same about the phone that’s bolted on to the 12MP camera of the Nokia N8.

We’ll be the first to admit that we’re not fans of Symbian in whatever iteration currently or previously available, but if Nokia had half the mind to carry over that wonderful N8 camera to a Windows Phone 7.5 device, now we’re talking. We would probably get that in a heartbeat.

Wouldn’t you agree?
