8-megapixel camera phone throwdown: Pixon vs Innov8 vs Renoir vs C905

With Sony Ericsson, LG, and Samsung all throwing 8-megapixel camera phones into the market within a few months of each other, we’ve been a bit disappointed at the lack of comparison sample photos available. The Samsung Pixon, Samsung Innov8, LG Renoir, and Sony Ericsson C905 all showboat their 8-megapixel shooter as the defining feature – so which is best? I’d been hoping someone would be able to scrounge up all four phones (and an enormous amount of time) to do a roundup, and GSMArena has knocked it out of the park.

Unfortunately for those looking for someone to tell them outright which handset to buy, there doesn’t seem to be a clear winner. While the Innov8 seems to be the best all around performer, the other three all have that little something that makes them worth considering. If you’re in the market for an 8-megapixel handset and you’re down to dig through 7 pages of photo samples and interface walkthroughs, this roundup is definitely worth the read.
