NBC NATIONAL NEWS — The way to capture moments nowadays is to use the cameras on smartphones. A recent study by research firm NDP Group found more than a quarter of all photos and videos are taken on smartphones.
But not every smartphone camera is created equal and Jessica Dolcourt of CNET knows which new smartphones are picture perfect.
The new iPhone 4S has clear and crisp photos even in low-light and very vivid colors. In addition to taking clear, vivid pictures, the iPhone 4S also has very simple camera controls. The HTC Vivid also takes crisp shots indoor and out says Dolcourt.
Unlike the iPhone, users can customize camera settings to have more control over how the picture will turn out.
Dolcourt's third choice is actually more than just one phone. It's the Samsung Galaxy S II line which features models like the Skyrocket. The Skyrocket and its sisters not only take sharp pictures, but also feature an expandable memory slot.
As for knowing which camera is right for you, Dolcourt says to get hands on with the phone in the store.
