I was thinking about camera and the old PureView algorithms and I wanted to see if I really needed to take 13MP with this thing or if I could use a lower resolution. So I went into the settings and found that the options for 4:3 were: 13, 3 and 3MP! Wasn't there one about 7MP before?
I checked the EXIF and one is 3.1MP and the other is 2.8MP, basically the same resolution. FYI my phone is now running the July update.
Does anyone have a phone with an earlier software version? Can anyone remember the previous available settings? Or have they always been like this?!
On the comparison of different resolutions (13MP with these 3MP variants), I actually couldn't see a big difference. Maybe I wasn't using good subjects, or not focussing properly, or not in the conditions which would show the difference, so I can't be certain that there's not really any difference. What are your observations on this?
