I just got a new Android smartphone, tap camera, tap camera, tap camera, loading loading loading loading, frame shot, focusing focusing, hit shutter button, did it work?, hit shutter button, ok I think it worked that time, nice an 8MP picture of what I didn't want.  Sure iPhones work a lot faster (though my droid has a dual core processor) but overall smartphones don't even come close to a P&S for simple speed of use.

Forget Galaxy Note 3 ... according to the email I've received from our region's popular online store, the below phone will automatically turn you into a pro in photography ;D

I'm getting a galaxy note 3. Sayonara IPhone 5.

I was leaning towards the Nokia 925 myself, but the Note 3 is a very impressive piece of hardware.

The ability to take handwritten notes, index and sync them, on a device big enough to be usable but still pocketable, is very appealing to me.

Distance photography
...

Low-light photography
...


I'd like to add
Shallow DoF photography
What matters here is sensor size divided by f-stop number. You can only make good lenses up to about f/1 and it seems cheap lenses are stuck at around f/2. If you want to go shallower, you have to increase the sensor size.

Or to put it the other way around: A full frame DSLR with a f/5.6 lens could be replaced by a camera phone with an f/1 lens of shorter focal length and a chip of 8mm diagonal and produce THE EXACT SAME PICTURES (or even better because it has higher quantum efficiency and less read noise).

I have my Note 3 now and I'll never be returning to any apple products. It was some headaches to get over to android but now I'm set. Plus My note has 96GB of storage with 32gb + 64gb card. Its awesome.

Me too ... just bought the Galaxy Note 3 a few minutes ago ... but I will be going back to iPhone if they come up with a large screen (min 5.5) ... For now I like the Note 3 4G LTE ... got a 32GB + my earlier 64GB Micro SO card darned handy ... camera is not bad either but I will stick to to my DSLRs for that. But I don't like stupid Android/Samsung theme so I've installed iOS 7 theme.

And don't forget wildlife photography.... You can use your iPhone for great bird pictures, like this flock of several hundred Canada geese.....
The best camera is the one in your hands

The iPhone at least allows you to take very good images if you get close ... but the images from Samsung Galaxy Note 3 sucks cow n!pples ... I'm quite disappointed by the camera in Note 3.

its a smart move - most people don't need more than 8mp on a phone anyways. but those slomo vids look excellent.

Oh yeah, the slomo on iPhone 5S is seamless and awesome.
