It's way better than the Evo 3D's camera.

Yeah, but gets schooled by the camera of the iP4s and HTC One.

I hope Samsung doesn't adopt the thinking that increasing MP makes a better camera, the illogical thinking that HTC fell victim to. We have seen time and time again that MPs don't mean a whole lot, if they did then the 5MP camera of the iPhone 4 wouldn't be significantly better than most of the cameras in Android phones. Using a 'zero lag shutter' with ****ty optics = ****ty camera. Making that camera 12MP instead of 8MP = ****ty camera with more MP.

So you're saying Samsung's camera on their last gen phone, which was better than any HTC camera ever made, isn't as good as the camera on HTC's brand new flagship phone that hasn't even been released in the USA?

And this is supposed to be some sort of knock on Samsung cameras?

Just read your edit...

Samsung has never put out a "bad" camera. I don't think you need to worry about the quality of the camera on the Galaxy S 3. Samsung consistently had the best cameras in the WinMo days, and they have consistently had the best Android cameras too.

If you're worried about future cameras, you should be concerned with the Evo LTE. HTC is the one who historically hypes a camera and it turns out to be crappy.

And SPB Shell 3D is way better than both of them.

I own an Evo 3D. Before that I had an Evo 4G, Sprint Touch Pro 2, AT&T Touch Pro 2, AT&T Tilt, Sprint Mogul, Sprint PPC 6700, and Sprint PPC 6600. Those are all HTC phones.

I am not some HTC hater or troll. I just call it like I see it.

I'm saying that phones like the iP4s and Sony xperia have really stepped up the phone-camera game. Samsung's most recent solution to try to put out a "good" camera was a failure. The camera on the iP4s, Sony xperia, and HTC One make a dedicated point and shoot camera completely unnecessary; we've entered a new world of what constitutes a "good" and "bad" phone camera. Samsung released their GN alongside the iP4s release and touted the camera as a strong selling point- only to realize that its performance was dismal compared to other top performers on the market. HTC has made an effort to make a great camera without just increasing MP. On May 3, we'll found out if Samsung did the same thing.

So? Again, this Samsung camera that you are attempting to put down, was better than any HTC camera ever made to that point. In fact, HTC has still not released a camera in the USA that is even close to as good as it. So I fail to see how this means you're better off trusting the next HTC camera will be good, while worrying if the next Samsung camera will suck. History has shown time and time again that if one of them sucks it will be the HTC camera, and if one is good it will be the Samsung camera.

It most certainly does not "blow" lol. It currently has a 4.1 rating in the market with over 100,000 + downloads. Clearly, lots of people agree that this app is awesome. I agree that it's expensive, but it's well worth the money (as over 100,000 people in the market agree).
