The Ultimate Multimedia Smartphone the N93 reviewed
“To use the 3.2 megapixel camera, you must swivel the screen through a right angle, with this action starting the camera application. However in any other mode, ‘Camera’ uses the secondary (VGA/video calling) camera. It is a shame that you cannot switch back to the main camera, to take candid images and videos to your left hand side. One related annoyance is that when you rotate the screen back into clamshell mode, after using the camera, the application stays active but switches to the secondary camera, meaning that you’re taken from your peaceful photographic experience of your subject to seeing an image of your own face – which can come as a bit of a shock!The proof of the pudding is in the eating, of course, especially with this review’s focus on the multimedia performance. Before going any further, let us state that there’s no way the N93 is good enough to displace a standalone digital camera of similar specification for even semi-professional use. The lens and CMOS array are just physically too small and the handling of extremes of light and dark just isn’t flexible enough. As with all other smartphone camera, in very bright light there will be washed out areas and in dim conditions (e.g. indoors) there will be lots of picture ‘noise’ and blur on any moving objects. Contrast this with a standalone camera, which will have a large enough lens and enough sensor intelligence to gather and cope with an awful lot more photons of light.” Read this great review here:
