But thats wrong, and here is why.

You can't just "Shrink" a sensor. Doing so requires a nearly complete redesign of every component involved, including the hardware that manufactures the sensors.

So, while it is plausible that they may have used the sensor from the Iphone 4s as a starting point, there is no way that they simply "shrunk" the photosites to increase pixel density.

What's with all the butthurt in this thread anyway?

At first there was some guy saying Tegra 4 was going to be good, but that's okay, people always fell for Nvidia's marketing even though Tegra is 2 years behind in performance every time.

Now there's someone who thinks the Galaxy S4 has a good camera, or one comparable to the iPhone or Lumia, even though the shitty SGS4 uses the exact same IMX135 sensor with the pixel pitch scale down to 1.1µm, and all the pictures confirm that it is, indeed, shit.

That's because you're comparing a tablet with a phone.

Tablets don't use the same SoCs, they use much more powerful and power hungry ones.

When Apple unveils their next iPads next month, it'll be a better comparison, assuming it also uses an ARMv8 64-bit SoC, which I personally think is unlikely. They just signed their deal with TSMC, I doubt they can fabricate enough for both iPhones and iPads.

>> No.36823831

>the sheer number of pixels is not as important as the quality of those pixels

This is actually true. As sensor makers increase the pixel density, the result is more noise produced by each pixel, as each pixel is taking in less light, since it covers a smaller area. A 40 megapixel sensor using the same generation technologoy as a 20 megapixel sensor will be more prone to high ISO noise, since it has to amplify each photosite's signal more to get the same level of exposure.

However, despite the S4 having more pickles, the images are STILL better than the Iphone 5.

The one that has the off white balance, the yellow, is the S4. The white balance was off because the photographer failed to set it properly in camera on the S4. White balance is easily editable in post, and is not a function of image quality, but of photographer quality.

Despite the image having a thrown off white balance, the image of the S4 is much clearer than the Iphone.

If you think that the image being yellow makes the camera worse, or is the camera's fault, you know nothing about photography and should not be judging images.

The S4 images are the yellow ones. The S4 images are sharper, and look much clearer and better overall.

No, it is not.

If you do two 100% crops of two images, both taken of the same thing at the same distance from the thing, then the camera that had more megapixels will have a larger image than the one with less megapickles.

What the hell do you think was the whole point of the shoot out? Both phones on AUTO SETTINGS, just like how 99% of the market with their amateur photography skills takes their damn photos.

It's actually funny that we all are subconciously convinced that Apple is so far ahead we're comparing last year's iPhone model (iPhone 5) with this year's Android flagship (SGS4)

>> No.36824364

Actually it does.

A camera with more megapixels can capture more data than one with less. The downside generally being that there is more noise. However, in the case of the S4 vs Iphone, the S4 does not have any more of a noise problem than the Iphone.

It's not just Apple's phone.

Per the law and FCC rules, if the phone has GPS on it, any phone, it gives your location for E-911. Because that's the easiest way for telcos to comply with the law.

Dumbphones are triangulated, which is less accurate.
