Believe it or not, Sharp camera phones have outstanding image quality. Hopefully, this will raise the bar and other manufacturers will take notice that we don't just want higher image resolution (just bigger crappy pictures), but really high quality pictures from a camera phone.
Actually, higher resolution does mean larger picture. And no, larger picture doesn't necessarily mean better quality. Take the Motorola line up. V600 has VGA resolution camera, V710 has 1.2 MP camera. The picture quality is not improved at all (obviously subjective, but c'mon, the pictures from the V710 suck). They are simply larger.
The implied difference in quality between the lower res and higher res is if you scale the low res picture to the size of the hi res, the hi res will be better because it captures all the pixels natively, while the low res would have to interpolate to scale to the bigger size.
Picture quality has more to do with the image sensor and lens quality. In the case of this Sharp phone, it uses a CCD imag... (continues)
