Excerpt: The Pixon12 is about to be three times lucky. But any way you look at it, it's nothing short of a dozen. Not that we wanted to make that much fuss, but a bunch of 12 megapixel pictures coming from a phone are always worth it. All the more so, when they come out just right.
Conclusion: I personally feel that this device is most suited to someone who wants the camera features more than the phone. As a phone its no way as nice as the Samsung Jet or Omnia II but it does have a great camera. If Samsung put this camera on other devices they would be kicking butt!
Samsung Pixon 12 review – remarkable pictures from a breakthrough camera phone
29 October 2009
Conclusion: You might be thinking by now that I’m a little bit biased about the Samsung Pixon 12 – that I’ve been raving about it a bit too much. And it’s true – I have. But the reason is, it’s finally a phone that can take on a digital camera and compete with it in picture quality.
Conclusion: Let's face it, the Samsung Pixon12 M8910 is by far probably the best camera phone on the market – hands down. It packs some improvements in hardware and software over the original to really make this a worthy successor.
Pros: Great photo quality, Beautiful AMOLED screen, TouchWiz 2.0 Interface, Smartphone like abilities, Quality video recording
Cons: Rather poor call quality, Email setup lacks automatic settings
Summary: We were content with the PIXON12's reception quality, although it wasn't much different from other phones in this class. The ring tones volume was above average, and the vibro alert was nothing to shout about, as it hadn't changed at all, compared to the S8000.
Summary: The PIXON12's box claims it's the world's first 12 MP cameraphone and we couldn't agree more - Sony Ericsson's IDOU, announced back in February and now known as Satio won't hit the shelves sooner than early October and only in selected markets at that.
Conclusion: There aren't many other details available at present, except that this is a 3.5G device with both HSDPA and HSUPA high-speed data support plus WiFi. Does it have GPS? Well, the old Pixon does so expect to see it here too. Is it a smartphone?
Summary: The Samsung Pixon has a 12-megapixel camera – and if that isn't big enough for you, we don't know what is. In short, this device's camera is a beast. It probably still won't beat a dedicated digital camera, but it's still one hell of a function to have on your device.
