Pixels has something to do with the Camera

This by far the most difficult question I have ever answered on SOH

at this point more screen res isn't discernable with the naked eye.

You're not a photographer. Just because you take black and whites of inanimate objects and put an XProIl filter on it, doesn't make you a photographer. You're a loser. You're life isn't special. I'll take a faster processor or better 4G/5G.

Camera but mostly because I use my phone almost entirely for pictures. I hardly use it for anything else. Case in point, my phone camera has malfunctioned and I kinda just have this slab of metal lying around.

Who the fuck needs better than 1080p on a phone? Camera for sure.

As an iPhone 4 owner, better camera. It's disappointing.

But why? Because you can't have a better picture without a better pixel and vice versa.

If you take a better picture, you can see it in more places than the phone.

I don't want anything with a resolution above 1920x1080. Anything larger is just a drain on the battery IMO.

Pixels I guess.. I don't own a smartphone. I'm sure if I did, I might say camera, but then again, that's what cameras are for... bitĨhes...

I really like taking pictures, and my screen's as detailed as I'll ever need.

Neither. I'd prefer a better processor

Not surprised at all that most girls want better photos and boys want better pixels. Haha

I will soon be purchasing an LG G3 which has a 2.5k display (1440p). So, pixels.

Today's screens are really stunning, but the sensors they put in these iThings could sure use an upgrade. I take a better camera, in a heartbeat!...

Higher resolution = better viewing all the time. Better porn too.

I have a DSLR so phone camera doesn't get used for any pic that actually matters, so screen.

What's the use taking great looking pics if I cannot see them in HD to determine if they're good or not?

Camera quality for sure. Screens are beyond the point where most people can tell the difference. Not even close to that point with cameras.

Definitely camera with the amount of travel we do. I use it as much as I use my Canon.

Pixels, but measured in megas, as used to describe camera resolution. A typical HD screen is adequate, especially in the sizes used in small-enough phones, where 1080p looks great. More camera resolution gives me a lot more flexibility.

I'm in the market for a phone with a better camera. Any suggestions?

Not an iPhone. So over them.

The iPhone has the best phone camera hands down. People will cry about the megapixel count but the sensor is way ahead of the competition. Megapixels are simply for marketing without other quality aspects to back them up.

The best camera phones are the Note 4, Galaxy S5, and iPhone 6, in that order.

But Jeninerd just got the Note 4 and loves it! Talk to her.I have the HTC One M8 which has a good camera but it doesn't have the best. I didn't really care as I was set on a gorgeous metal phone and I have a DSLR.

No. Iphone 6 plus, in any test I've seen, has hands down beat any other phone. No Samsung can match its camera.

I don't entertain fanboys. The iPhone is good at many things, but it's not best at everything.

I never said it was. The Samsung screen beats all comers as OLED always will. I said the camera is the best and that all reviews, professional reviews, back me up on this. It is simply a very good camera.

Cnet, Engadget, and anandtech which are all respected names. They do professional reviews and are not some dude on YouTube giving their opinions based on subjective viewpoints.

lol "some dude on YouTube"? Engadget and CNET are YouTube reviewers dumb ass. But everyone knows CNET's apple bias (if you were actually a part of the tech community, you'd know no one listens to them unless the product they're reviewing doesn't have

an Apple competitor. Regardless, like I said, the differences in the top camera phones are minimal. If you want to take amazing photos, invest in a DSLR and stop talking about primitive phone functions.

and the people I listed are actual reviewers. Companies send them products to review. Also check out Marques Brownlee, whose videos consistently get millions of views. CNET videos get what, a couple tens of thousands?

Thanks Droo. You've become super helpful since you found Baby Jeebus!

I'm definitely not getting another iPhone so whatever the next best thing is I'll check out.
