The Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the Samsung Galaxy S2 and the Samsung Galaxy Note are three of the best android smartphones that have taken the world by storm. The amazing viewing pleasure that one experiences on the Super AMOLED display is seen to be believed. They are the best multimedia devices and the biggest rivals of the iPhone.
Presented below is a comparison of the camera specifications and the HD recording capabilities of all the three devices, i.e. the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the Samsung Galaxy S2 and the Samsung Galaxy Note.
- The Samsung Galaxy Nexus: Out of the three, the Nexus is the one with cameras that have the least megapixel strength. It comes with a 5 megapixel rear camera and a 1.3 megapixel front facing camera that can be used for video calling. However, the camera has zero shutter lag, quicker autofocus and native photo-editing features. Also, since the Nexus comes with the Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, it has resulted in faster and substantially smoother picture taking experience. The Camera software that comes with ICS is also better, in the sense that it now allows the using of live effects, taking panorama photos as well as auto-uploading to Google+
- The Samsung Galaxy S2: The Samsung Galaxy S2 comes with an 8 mega pixel primary camera and 2 mega pixel secondary camera. The camera also has autofocus, LED flash, smile and face detection, touch focus, geo tagging and image stabilization.
- The Samsung Galaxy Note: The camera on the Samsung Galaxy Note is the same as the S2 with an 8 megapixel rear camera and a 2 megapixel front facing camera for video calling. The other features listed above are also the same.
- The Samsung Galaxy Nexus: The Nexus comes with a 5 megapixel camera at the rear that is set to record HD videos at 720p. But once you tweak it a bit, the camera is capable of recording 1080p at 30fps. The recorded videos have colors that appear true-to-life and images that are strikingly clear. Thus inspite of the reports, the 5 megapixel camera can record 1080p full HD videos.
- The Samsung Galaxy Note: The 8 megapixel camera can easily record full HD videos which are very captivating to watch on the big screen. The camera can record 1080p HD video in the range of 24 frames/second to 30 frames per second, and playback is 1080p at 30fps. The camera provides uninterrupted autofocus while shooting videos and then stores the file in .mp4 format, which results in a bigger file. There are no cases of any drop in the frame rate, unless the videos are hot under low illumination. The Samsung Galaxy Note also offers stereo recording in addition to the ability to shoot videos in 720p HD shooting mode with wider captured areas.
- The Samsung Galaxy S2: The camera on the Samsung Galaxy S2 offers the same HD recording capabilities as the Note, although the viewing pleasure may become a tad bit diminished due to the comparatively smaller screen size on the S2.
