  1. Who cares if it’s only a 5MP camera….IT’S A PHONE, not a DSLR camera for crying out loud! 5MP is 2984 x 1680 resolution. More than enough to print an 8×10 photo without losing the quality it was taken in. And let’s be real…these phone cameras do NOT take clear pictures if you inspect them in Photoshop or Lightroom. They are only an item of convenience & should be weighted as such when considering a new P-H-O-N-E. The only time the hobbyist or average person is going to need more than 5MP is if they’re going to blow it up to larger than 13″ on one side. Come on everyone…let’s start letting these phone manufacturers focus on what MATTERS. Reception, functionality & BATTERY LIFE. The only thing 8MP is going to do for you is hog up more of your memory card.
