Re: It's that time again: Smartphone upgrade!

Stop thinking that megapixels define a camera. The iPhone sensor gets (arguably) better results out of an 8Mp sensor than most anything else on a phone due to how well the light information is decoded on the software side. The Nokia 1020, Galaxy Note, and the other handful of top-end phones with good sensors are all let down in some way in comparison. I'm not saying the iPhone is the best camera phone out there, but if not it is damn close. I'd love to see what they can do with a 16 megapixel sensor and that same software prowess, but that is overkill for 90% of users and would mean shaving their margins down even more than the last few models already have.
