The floral photos above were taken in macro mode. As you can see the higher resolution works to a certain extent, but beyond that the camera is not capable of really high resolution which is to be expected given its specs (cf. the bee on the flower). However if you maximise its capabilities but bearing in mind its limitations (5 mpx camera) when it comes to general performance this model can punch above its weight. The convenience and speed with which to capture very fleeting scenes do offset some of its limitations.
For truly high resolution one has to migrate to higher specs models. The other alternative to a better camera without losing the convenience feature (or to resort to using cumbersome attachments) is to consider using and testing the more powerful models of its own product stable or that of other phone brands.
The ideal is of course to have a powerful dslr complete with 60x real zoom, stabilizer, etc., within your phone without any extra bulk and weight to what we have now come to expect as 'normal' for a mobile phone, along with all the other features!



including panoramas of Space Place and Lady Norwood Rose Garden. Enjoy!

Watch this space when I post more photos of WBG & LNRG.
