The wife and I took our dogs to the park today. I also brought along the Nokia N97 and iPhone 3GS for a photo comparison. Take a look and let us know the differences you notice.
Update: I’ve also taken more comparison photos at night.

Geotagging is turned on for both devices. The iPhone 3GS successfully geotagged all 8 photos while the Nokia N97 was only able to geotag 2 of the 8 photos. You know what else is surprising? The SIM card was in the Nokia N97, while the iPhone was in offline mode. A possible explanantion is that the GPS signal on the Nokia N97 is weak as discussed on Nokia’s forums.
Image Quality Comparison
The Nokia N97 takes 5MP photos while the iPhone 3GS takes 3MP photos. In this post, all the photos were resized to less than 500 pixels wide. Click on each photos to check the original size. I’m not a photography expert, but it seems that the iPhone’s photos are darker. What other things do you notice?
