PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless PureMobile sent us in the Nokia N79 for a quick spin. This is one of the latest Symbian phones out there, running the latest non-touchscreen version of the S60 operating environment, version 3.2.

While i'm not fond of your test pictures, what i like those phones for is usually the camera.

I can do really good quality pictures with them, as long as there's enough.

They're pretty bad in low light condition and have also no setting for exposure duration.

Eg: N95 picture with he 5MP (last 3 modified in gimp as the link indicates :p):

The N95 camera is much better than the N79's. So don't compare apples and oranges. Also evident from my N95 review: http://www.osnews.com/story/17837/Review_Nokia_N95/page2/

i think he means this class of mobile phone vs the iPhone which you mentionned
the iPhone camera kinda sucks in comparison, being N95 or the phone in question here

edit:

your test picture isnt exactly a very nice area, the luminosity is very bad which is usually making bad pictures with these cameras
your test pictures for your N95 link had a much better light (maybe its also better quality etc, but anyway, i think that's the point ;)
