T-Mobile G2X Tops in Consumer Reports Camera Tests

Posted by at 9:48 am on June 28, 2011

In its August issue, Consumer Reports shares a test of 45 smartphones with a focus on their integrated cameras. It finds that the eight-megapixel camera in the T-Mobile G2X was the very best, with very good still images and the best in terms of video quality. The story also includes ratings for stand-alone cameras and camcorders as well as advice on taking good photos.

A close second place is taken by the HTC Thunderbolt and its eight-megapixel camera. It doesn’t have an image stabilizer but its large display and tap-to-focus feature win acclaim.

Apple’s iPhone 4, despite being the most popular camera on Flickr, places fourth in the list, just below the third-place Motorola Atrix. It has high-quality video but is now considered strictly average for still photos and slightly below average for its flash performance.

Samsung fills out most of the list with three Galaxy S phones, while the Motorola Droid X comes in eighth place.

The report still concludes that no smartphone camera can match the quality and versatility of a basic point-and-shoot digital camera.
