Sony Ericsson K850 Head 2 Head with Nokia N95

Several high-end camera-phones have reached 5MP stages. The Nokia N95 was the first that armed with 8GB memory, larger screen, larger battery, and the product is the flagship of Nokia. Sony Ericsson seems does not want to loose for the momentum, the company also launch its new flagship, the Sony Ericsson K850 (the K-series is purposed for camera-geek users). Another hot item that seems comparable with Nokia N95 and Sony Ericsson K850 is LG Viewty KU990, which is the successor of LG Prada that featured 5MP camera, the best fashion-phone in 2007.

According to Miles Flint, a chairperson of Sony Ericsson, the company is trying to offer the right phone for its commercial users by providing the users with the product that able to snap high-quality pictures, to listen to their favorite songs on the move or just stay in-touch. No doubt, those two camera-phones (Sony Ericsson K850 and Nokia N95) offer the choice between a viable digital camera alternative and a pocket-sized clamshell phone with camera for taking occasional snap-shots. The 5MP camera with auto-focus and Xenon flash produces true digital camera results.

Both mobiles save detailed EXIF information to the JPG files. The focal length of the Sony Ericsson K850 is recorded there as 5.18 mm, while the one of the Nokia N95 it is 5.60 mm. That along with the fact that the two phones have the same field of view means that Nokia N95 has larger sensor and you can expect better performance from this phone in terms of noise and dynamic range.

The Nokia N95 able to offer a cleaner looking image (look at the first crop or at the sky), the phone is very good ISO 200 performance indeed. However, if you looking a little bit deeper you will notice the price paid. Nokia has implemented some clever noise suppressing technique, which delivers smooth image. However, Sony Ericsson K850 can offer better quality in noisier images. The file size of the Sony Ericsson K850 is twice as big, you do not need to surprise, this is because of the noise reduction in the Nokia N95 loses a lot of fine detail. On the other hand, the Sony Ericsson approach is slightly better, as image noise can be fixed with specialized software, while the lost detail in the N95 photo cannot be recovered.

Both of them are Tri-Band HSDPA and Quad-Band GPRS/EDGE phone, which is able to offer faster connectivity speed (3.5G) than common 3G technology.
