Taking Quality Pics on Your Android

When the first Android debuted a few years back, smart phone cameras were promising but still very rudimentary. Things have changed quite a bit since then. Nowadays, Android cameras can match or exceed the capabilities of many point and shoot cameras in terms of picture quality and features. Still, taking amazing photos with an Android isn't always a cakewalk. Despite the advanced features of many built-in phone cameras, they're still not quite as good as true stand alone models. Here are a few helpful tips to take the best photos possible with your Android.

Ditch The Digital Zoom
While it may seem like a terrific idea at first, the zoom function on your camera is actually a hindrance to taking good photographs. That's because of the way your phone's camera is set up. The optics are fixed, so it doesn't have a telephoto lens like a traditional digital camera. What that means is that your on-board camera uses digital zoom to merely enlarge the size of each pixel in the image you capture. That leads to fuzzy pictures that aren't crisp and clear. If you're taking a picture of something far away, just move closer.
