  1. To be honest, that's the only reason I'm considering the N8. The amazing camera. I do a bit of travelling and I am somewhat underwhelmed by the camera of my galaxy s and my wife's iphone 4. They do all right in broad daylight, but not too good in low light conditions. I don't really want a dedicated camera either since I'll only be using it when I'm out of town and don't want to bring different gadgets for different tasks. Thanks for the reply.
