iPhone 4 vs iPhone 3Gs vs iPhone 3G

In the third part of the test I’m shooting an object from a pretty close distance (15 cm). Here you can really see a big difference between the different cameras and if you compare the 3G with the iPhone 4 side by side you can see that they are miles apart.

As you can see the iPhone 3G has a problem getting a sharp focus on objects that are close to the lens. The photo is blurry and very grainy.

Without switching lense on my 550D I couldn’t get any closer than this so the 100% crop below isn’t really accurate but it shows what kind of sharpness the iPhone 4 is capable of. Impressive.

The 3G photo is barely useable for anything while the 3Gs and photo from the iPhone 4 is pretty good.

Moving on to a even worse conditions. I went inside a wardrobe and shot these photos during very poor lighting conditions.

All of the iPhones are pretty bad during poor lighting conditions – and that’s where the new iPhone 4 flash comes in handy. It makes all the difference and it’s capable of snapping photos even when there’s hardly any light. Without the flash the iPhone 4 is almost as bad as the 3G, but with a higher resolution. The worst phone in this test was the iPhone 3Gs with very bad low light performance.

    If you think black iphone 4 is a little dull, it’s your time to change it to a more delicate color. Let’s get the iphone 4 white!
