    Bets Camera on a phone: 3 lens system, one wide angle, one normal, and one zoom lens. Each has less than a F 1.5 aperature. It would also take 4K at 1000 FPS, and 8K at 240 FPS. This is my dream phone camera

    This years iPhones are incredible for their cameras. In reality the older iPhone (3G/3GS/4) cameras were really really bad – far worse then Blackberry, Nokia etc at the time and it amazed me that Apple were OK with that as they are perfectionists. The iPhone camera got good from the 4S when Apple started using SONY optics. As a marketing guy, I remember taking urgent photos on the iPhone 3S and any movement was a complete blur. Sadly, I couldn't use the majority of the photos. The iPhone X on the other hand – great camera that i'm proud to use – but then i'm super impressed with the rear camera in the iPhone SE for both photo & 1080p 60fps video!

    well, the original iphone beats the iphone x thanks to one fact:
    it has a home button

    It's still blows my mind how bad the original iPhone was compared to its competitors at the time and that it was a success.

    You should do this with an iPhone 4S that has a better camera than the iPhone 2 G or original iPhone however you want to say it I've had the four ask for 7 years and I'm ready to upgrade to the iPhone X or iPhone 11 this year I'm not getting the iPhone x probably this year actually because it's $1,000 not only that but it's the 10th anniversary I kind of want to wait till the iPhone 11 because then maybe hopefully they will lower the prices if that's what they decide to call it I hope they call it iPhone 11 but iPhone 12 or just iPhone would be nice either way it'll be better than the Google pixel ones camera that's for sure

    OMG that's funny. When I first saw the iPhone X I thought wow how tiny is this.

    And about the camera: as far as I remember Apple only began seeing the camera as a phone's potential when they published the iPhone 4 with a significantly improved camera. And from that time on the iPhoneography and smartphone photography came to life with ever improving camera hard- and software in smartphones.
