2008: Samsung Pixon 8
8-megapixels? Pfft, that’s nothing in today’s context. But back then, the Pixon 8 was the pinnacle of smartphone imaging, squeezing camera features into this tiny mobile device. Did we mention that Samsung inserted an 8-megapixel sensor to make the Samsung Pixon a serious shooter? Now? We have 41-megapixels. The same rule applies - the numbers do not matter, if you can’t shoot for nuts.
Verdict: don't knock it, it made smartphone photography what it is today.
