Which Camera will take better pictures? The one in my Samsung Galaxy S4 phone or a Fuji S4800 camera? I know the Fuji has better MP (16 vs 13) and much greater zoom but I am still wondering if I really need to purchase the Fuji when I have the Samsung. Will the pictures be that much better? Thanks a bunch for helping me.

  • \$\begingroup\$ I find that most cameras take better photos than those on camera-phones - they have more options, can focus further away, more stable and less blurry images, etc. For practical purposes most phone-cameras are best close up - like in this post showing a close view of my 'baked' raspberry pi... \$\endgroup\$

1 Answer 1


The Fuji will take better pictures by a country mile.

It has larger (and better) lens elements, sensor and built-in stabilisation which will all contribute a lot to improving image quality.

But the Fuji will only help if it's with you - otherwise you'll have something else to dust and still be taking snaps on your phone.
