back to article LG KC870 cut-price 8Mp cameraphone

    8Mpixels 8 schmegapixels.

    The resolution of the lenses on these cameraphones renders anything above two or three megapixels entirely redundant ... apart from as a tool for selling more flash memory. The genuinely cut-price way to an 8MP cameraphone is to buy a second-hand 3MP cameraphone and then invent a few million extra pixels with some freebie image software.

    If the size of your penis needs some numerical compensation, you could always scribble 16MP on the case of the phone with a glittery pen.

    Reg mobile reviews

    There are a few additional things I would like to see in your reviews:

    Firstly a specifications table for the handsets would be useful, so we can see at once whether the phone has the features we want/need. Not vital, but it would be nice.

    More importantly I really want to see photo/video taken with the phone; what's the point of reviewing a camera phone without showing us the picture quality? It's not as if these will be huge files...

    Where's the example shots?

    A cameraphone review, but with no images taken by the camera, despite this being the main / only feature considered in the review. Poor show El reg...

    8 megapixels is redundant if it's not coupled with a decent lens.

    Wake me up when these manufacturers...

    realize that in order to make a "serious" camera phones they need to include Xenon flashes on them. People do take photos at night and in dimly lit areas, you know.

    Off to purchase a Samsung G810 in a few days....
