Apple iPhone 4S vs. Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc Camera Performance Comparison - Macro Low-Light Shoot-Out!

Whatever phone emerges superior in this shoot-out, Sony wins.

When it comes to imaging capabilities, there are perhaps no two smartphones better to compare against each other than Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc - which is inarguably one of the best cameraphones of 2011 - and Apple iPhone 4S, the best cameraphone from Apple thus far. Both of these handsets have an 8 MegaPixel camera with advanced optics made by Sony and a backlit sensor that's supposed to perform well in low-light conditions.

I did this shoot-out to find out which of these two smartphones with largely similar imaging technology behind them delivers higher quality indoor Macro shots, which I think is one of the most challenging shots to take for any camera. All photos were taken using automatic settings and with no flash.

All of the first photos were taken using Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc

The second images were taken using Apple iPhone 4S

Quality is a matter of personal preference so I'm letting you decide which phone wins this round. TP Friends, kindly leave your comments below.

TP Thoughts:

Personally, I think Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc held its own pretty well against iPhone 4S, which is clearly a tough competitor to beat in this department. I think it's amazing how Arc could be a year old and still be one of the best cameraphones out there - along with Nokia N8.

I join other SE fans who are eagerly waiting to see the camera performance of the 2012 follow-up to Sony's flagship, which I believe will be named Sony Ericsson Xperia HD. That one should be a true winner.
