Camera And Video
In 2010, the camera and video quality can make or break a smartphone. Both the Motorola Droid X and the Apple iPhone 4 hit the market with flashbulbs blazing.
The Droid X packs in an 8.0 megapixel camera with digital zoom, auto focus, a dual LED flash and image editing tools. For video, it rolls with 720p HD video capture and HD playback via a host of different video types including MPEG4, HDMI and others.
Meanwhile, the Apple iPhone 4 storms the camera and video scene with a 5 megapixel still camera that features an LED flash and five times digital zoom. And for video the iPhone 4 offers 720p HD video recording at up to 30 frames per second, tap to focus for video and stills, photo and video geotagging and support of nearly every video format known to man. The iPhone 4 stands apart, however, by offering dual front and back cameras, which enable the ability to make video calls over FaceTime.
Winner: Apple iPhone 4. While the Droid X packs an impressive 8 megapixel punch, the dual cameras and the FaceTime capabilities of the iPhone 4 are enough for it to capture the camera and video crown.
