This post is not intended to be one that critiques the camera of the Sony Ericsson Arc or other such devices.
My intention here is to simply show that how for the average smartphone user, devices such as the Arc can be used as replacements to digital cameras in some scenarios.
I am not a big camera user but from time to time I like to get some photos and carrying just one device is convenient. My HTC Desire always took what I considered to be more than acceptable shots, but switching to the Arc has made me realise just what differences do exist.
Megapixels should relate to the size of the overall image, but there are more technical things that come into play – but that is for another day.
Just take a look at the following 4 photos, the first 2 were taken on the Sony Ericsson Arc with standard settings, whilst the last took were taken on the HTC Desire with standard settings – see the differences?
