15 amazing photos taken on a smartphone
A few years ago, cameras on smartphones were valued more for their availability and convenience, and not for the quality of the pictures. Now the manufacturers of smartphones are paying much more attention to the possibility of shooting using mobile devices. For example, Nokia managed to squeeze 41 megapixels into the camera on its Lumia 1020. Apple and HTC decided to increase the matrix size and aperture on the cameras in their iPhone 5S and One smartphones, respectively. In simple terms, this means that these cameras can absorb more light than their competitors, with the result that users will get high-quality photos with excellent detail. We have come a long way from 1.3 megapixel cameras in 2004 to modern smartphones. And as proof of all of the above, we suggest that you look at the photos taken on “ordinary” smartphones, and not on expensive “SLRs”.
