With the holiday season upon us, many will be considering upgrading from their current phones to something a little more “modern.” One of the key features on any phone is the camera, especially for those who actually attend NFL games with any regularity. Regardless of whether you are in the nose-bleed to sitting comfortably at the 50-yard line behind the home bench, we all want to be able to take high quality photos to share with our family and friends who are stuck at home watching the game from their couches.
As we have already seen over the past couple of Sunday’s, the weather in the NFL is slowly, but surely, transitioning away from the “sunny skied, mid-70s” weather towards the nasty, sloppy, below-freezing games that mark the start of “real” football season. With that in mind, we at Ramblin’ Fan wanted to test out the cameras in the inclement weather. Camera 1 will be the Droid MAXX from Verizon, fitted with a 10MP camera with 4x zoom, which can also shoot 1080p video. Camera 2 will be the iPhone 5, sporting an 8MP camera that can also record in 1080p.
Above are the same picture shot from the same location. The image from the iPhone 5 shows more color and is significantly “brighter” than the image from the Droid MAXX. However, as expected with the higher pixel count, the Droid MAXX has much better quality when zooming in on any one particular area of the image.
Obviously, there are more factors than just the camera quality that go into purchasing your next GameDay phone. However, if picture taking is one of your “top priorities,” these genuine, everyday images should help you in making your decision.
…and, as always, GO RAMS!
