    Nokia Camera Phones - Best Camera Phones from Nokia

    Nokia N8 - 12MP Carl Zeiss Lens

    The best phone from Nokia to date is the Nokia N8, it boasts of not only good hardware but is also the only smartphone that has a 12MP camera. The big 3.5 inch screen comes with a 16:9 resolution and it provides great detail, allowing you to capture great moments on that fantastic 12 MP camera, all in high definition (HD). If you want a smartphone with a fantastic camera, the N8 is the best bet and even phones like the Nexus S and iPhone 4 don't stand a chance when it comes to the N8's awesome camera.

    Sadly there is no optical zoom for the N8's camera, just a digital 2x zoom. However, you won't feel the disadvantage troubling you, thanks to the Xenon flash and extreme control settings helping you to capture a good picture. In all it leaves you wondering if the cell phone is made for communication or if it is made for photography.
