LG KC910 Renoir and Samsung Pixon M8800 8-megapixel photo faceoff

With everyone on the planet pushing out an 8-megapixel handset of their own, it’s a bit surprising that we haven’t seen more photo samples. Sure, the basic idea of an 8-megapixel camera is great – but if the photos are the blurry blue messes we’ve come to expect from camera phones, what’s the point?

Where the handset manufacturers have failed to deliver, the international blogosphere fills the gaps. Now that the LG Renoir and Samsung Pixon have debuted in various parts of Europe, mobile@mail.ru has managed to track down these two 8-megapixel wonders. They run it through the paces, covering day shots, macro shots, indoor shots, and shots with flash.

Check out the full side-by-side gallery here. While the Pixon throws a few good punches, I’d have to say the Renoir takes the cake. [Via BGR]
