The 5 megapixel, dual LED flash Verizon/Motorola Droid camera beats the iPhone 3GS 3 megapixels on specs alone, right? Not according to the Chicago Sun/Times' technology columnist, Andy Ihnatko, who put some side-by-side comparison shots up on Flickr.
Ihnatko also seems to share many of my opinions about the Droid's dubious introduction commercial, though he writes it out ever so much better. About the camera specifically, he says:
does the Droid actually take better pictures than the iPhone? Overall, no. Over the past few days I’ve shot lots of scenes with both phones and the iPhone consistently produced prettier images. Where software inside the Droid is easily bamboozled by uncooperative lighting, the iPhone’s camera app almost always finds a workable and attractive solution.
Droid Day in November 6th. Android Central has one in the house, and Casey's already crowing about it, so stay tuned for more!
