November 10, 2009 8:34pm CST
Now a days, technology has improved a lot. previously, we use to have separate camera and separate phone at home. Now we are having a phone as well as camera in a single instrument. But still some people prefer to buy a mobile phone without a camera. which phone do you have. A phone with a camera or a phone without a camera. Which one you prefer? Please share with me

I have a phone with a camera on it and it is great if i am out and about to take photos of my friends and my family,as that way i can print them off on the pc when i get home.I never leave my house without my mobile phone either so it is a bonus that it has a camera on it.

Hi jugsjugs Defenitely it is great to take photos of our friends and our family when we go out and it is a memory too. I am happy to note that you will print it and store it in your pc. That shows how you are attached to your friends and family which is great.

Hi vathsala.. I too have a camera in my mobile.. It is of 1.3 megapixel.. If I take pictures through this phone it is not that clear image I get from it.. So normally I wont use the camera in my mobile..

Hi chaitra Only for emergency purpose, we use our camera in the phone and my children use it for fun and keep on taking snaps of our pet dog and upload in the computer and have fun. But sometimes it is helpful. When we go outside and see any good objects, and when we do not have our canon camera, we use this mobile camera to catch that objects. Thanks for responding.

I would like to have a basic phone. Camera with mobile phones are not worthy. They can get you good pictures. For pictures digital camera are the best.

Hi deepak Here I think I do not agree with you. If we want to take quality pictures of any special occasions like marriages or birthday party etc. then we can use our digital camera. But when there is no much difference in price for an ordinary phone or phone with camera, then we can opt for a phone with camera whether we use its camera or not but it will be handy and if need comes we can use it in the absense of our digital camera.

Hi Vathsala! I agree with you that one can use mobile with camera in case of emergency and take photographs. However, if the camera is not atleast of 2.0 megapixel or more the picture quality does not remain very good. Now a days even 5.0 megapixel cameras are coming with mobile handset, in that case mobile with a camera could be useful. I have an older addition and mine is only 1.3 megapixel, which does not give me very good quality pictures or videos.

Yes I do have to buy a mobile without a camera as my job does not permit a camera based mobile. It is the case with many tech professionals, sales personnal, customer support engineers, researchers, military personnels etc. I hope nokia & other big cellphone manufacturers will understand this problem will launch higher end phones without camera as well. Thanks Sandeep

Hi sandeep I think you are new to mylot and my hearty welcome to you my friend. If your job does not permit a camera based mobile means you can not help. Definitely Nokia and other big cellphone manufacturers will understand this and do the needful

Hi Vasthala, I have with camera phone. It is handy whereever we goes. We dont want to carry camera all the time. If we forget camera also, it help us. But for better picture quality I prefer Camera Only.

Hi priya phone with camera is really handy and we can use it as and when we need it. Taking both camera and phone every day with us whereever we go is not possible but taking a mobile with camera is handy and useful at times. Thanks for sharing your valuable views with me. Bye

My husband and I both have phones with cameras. It's not that we are big picture takers, but it really came in handy for my husband this summer. He was in a traffic accident that totaled both trucks. He was able to take several pictures of both vehicles for insurance proof. He was also not the cause of the accident because the other man ran the stoplight. By taking these pictures, it also showed the position of the vehicles if the insurance company had any questions. My grandson also likes my phone because he loves taking pictures of grandma when I come over. These phones are fun but they can be very useful too.

Hi surfette Really your husband is great that he immediately took photographs relating to the accidents and helped the concerning official as the insurance proof. I think your grandson has got lots of his grandma's photos in different styles and angles. Thanks for sharing your valuable information with me. Bye for now

If I want to bought a new cellphone for keep my memory and I love to collect many pictures so I need with camera. Most of the camera technology has been able to reach a distant image with high quality. It's very useful, can be taken anywhere and the shape is very small and lightly.

Hi may you are absolutely correct. A mobile phone with camera is a much useful, still easy to carry device by which we can converse with people as well as take pictures of our choice and we can even use it for seeing or sending mail. Thanks for sharing your valuable views with me my friend.

It depends on the price, because I have a camera, but I think if a phone with a good camera, it will be very convenience to have a phone with a good camera, you just need take a phone and can also take very good quality pictures, that one would be great, but if it very expensive and can't take good quality pictures, I think I won't choose that, and I will choose take both camera and phone.

Hi kindy You are very correct. A phone with a good camera will be very convenience. We can talk at the same time we can shot any pictures which we do not want to miss. Now a days, the prices of phone with camera is coming down. You can pick one of your choice. Thanks for responding

Hi colu You are right. A phone with a camera is convenient for both purposes. Blackberry is the best one so long as my knowledge is concerned. Thanks for responding. Did you take any pictures out of your blackberry?

Hi aking Even in my childhood, there were no mobile phones. We do not have one ordinary landline phone too, because, we rarely need it and that time we will go to any PCOs and make a call. Now we are having both one landline phone as well as two mobile with a camera. But there is a different in ordinary camera and a mobile camera. In ordinary camera, we get the picture very sharp and best but in mobile camera, the pictures comes out reasonably well.

I think people choose a cell phone with no special features, such as it being internet compatible, or having a camera/video camera, or music player, etc., because it's cheaper. And by cheaper I don't just mean the price of the phone, but also the phone contract you decide to go with. I use AT&T and with my iphone I have to pay for a $30 internet package to be able to use it. So, most people now have cameras and laptops and they can carry it around anywhere considering how small and light these things are compared to how big and heavy they were in the past few years, that there's no need for them to have all these things separately while having it on their phone as well, especially when they can save money. Personally, I think it's cool when your phone can do everything, because you don't have to take out your camera to take a photo or take out your laptop and wait for it to turn on to be able to go on the net. So, the phone just makes it easier to do everything all at once.

id really recommend phone with camera..because the new mobile phones have camera which give as much clarity as a normal camera...and it worth having two devices in one rather than having them each on one hand..you can call and talk if you wnat and take pictures as well if you want..although mobile phones equipped with camera is kinda leading some of the younger generations to a bad way..other than that i prefer mobile phones with camera

Hi dhinilshanker I totally agree with you that if we have two devices in one instrument, it will be helpful and useful at times. There are instances where some mischious guys take obscene pictures of gullible gals and post it in the internet, or try to black mail them for their selfishness. So mobile cameras are helpful, who use it properly and dangerous for some other people

I have a phone without a camera and the reason that I have this is the plane that I use cost me only $20 every three months (a pay as you go model). I don't use the phone that much so I do not have to pay much to use it. Yes a camera would be nice but it cost more to use (you wind up calling more and therefor you pay more to use it. I have a good digital camera as well as a good film camera that I use regularly. The film camera stays in my car so I have it at moat times whereas the digital camera I will take with me when I go to special events. I do not have to pay for developing the film but that is a small cost for when using the film camera for the pictures that I take.

Hi oscarbartoni Your ideas are good. keeping a phone with a camera or without a camera depends upon individuals choice. Some like to have a phone with a camera and some other without a camera. Thanks for responding

Hi Aunty How are you, I Have a phone with a camera. But i would prefer to have a phone without a camera. Because in few models there is a problem with the battery, You will have to keep charging every now and then. Where as a basic model phone has not got this problem. Now for show off we will have to keep it just it whether we use or not.

Hi deepa I do not agree with you. Because it is not necessary that you have to take photos, if you have a phone with a camera. If you use the camera only the battery will be discharged soon and you need to charge it often. But if you do not use the camera, the battery life will be a little bit long. In case of emergency, we can use the camera or we miss some precious events for lack of a camera and repent later on. Thanks for responding

There are varieties of phones in metro which is tempting. My son is having a flip type phone only, in which I play games. Thanks for responding

Sometimes it's useful for me to have the camera feature for my job. When we go to places and need to take pictures of objects or things to be sent to the office, it's very useful. It only takes few minutes to do it.

Hi rg0205 Thank you for your response. our modern technology is helping us lot. Defenitely whereever we go, we carry our mobile and by chance, if we happen to see any good objects, or good scenic beauty immediately we can store that picture in our camera.
