No, camera quality is not nearly as simple as the pixel size. The are VGA cameras that produce much better-quality photos than some megapixel ones. Large size (more pixels) does not equal higher quality.

But juding camera quality by the phone screen is a different issue. The problem is that a phone display - even the largest and best - is too small to see even 1/10th of a full-resolution megapixel image at once.

Plus if you're comparing one camera phone to another, it can be hard to know if the difference you see is due to the camera or the display.

So you need to transfer the image to a PC and view it there, to be able to see the whole image and judge the quality fairly against other camera phones.
