Well my S3 died. frown So I got a new phone, an S10. I can't believe how well this phone takes photos, better than any camera I have personally owned.
Really happy with camera in this phone.
So finally had some sun in Washington and got some of the cars cleaned up.

Oh wow I can't believe you were still rocking an S3. That was my first smart phone. It was a nice phone though, for it's time.

You made it sound like you got a new phone and just took these photos--that can't be, as my garaged cars look more like the dirt in your backyard at this time of year.

Nice pics, and nice shiny cars! thumbsup

We just got done with something like 38 days straight of rain and no sun...I was starting to lose my mind and I have done a few submarine patrols where I haven't seen the sun in over 50 days.

I would have sent you my old one if I would have known. I'm pretty sure it still works.

An S3 to an S10 is quite literally a 6-7 year jump in technology. I'm surprised that you're surprised that the camera is (so much) better.

Not so much surprised that the camera is better. I expected that. Just that it is actually a camera, like I don't need a separate one now.

While I also have the S10, I also picked up a Nikon D7500 recently with the 10-140mm VR lense. There's still a need for regular cameras, you don't have zoom or wide angle on a phone camera. Plus for indoor shots, you really need a flash that has some range. The LED flash on the phone camera is typically only good for 10-12 feet. I normally use an external flash to get enough light to fill the entire room.

My S3 Lite died two weeks ago, replaced with a LG G5 we had laying around. It is a lot bigger, but nice and fast with a sharp screen. I miss the size of the old one, however.

For what it's worth the S10 has a 2x zoom camera along with a ultra wide angle camera. In addition to the regular camera.

I do think it is the size I miss.

My boss just bought the same phone. I was talking to him about shopping at Wal-Mart and his phone started talking about Wal-Mart. It was creepy. Those are some nice pictures.

Most camera folks, i.e. the type that own nice DSLR units, will continue using them for "real" photography. 9 out of 10 people that take pictures with their mobile phones will never save them, print them, etc. Most will "lose" the photos over time, from what I see.
