    To my eyes the images look much less artifacty than the images on the Pre. And seem comparable to the N95

    Low-light images are still a bit noisy.

    The noise is weird. It's diagonal and "painterly". Very odd.

    Yeah. I looked at these images again and my opinion has gone down a bit.
    I think the new camera has better focus, and there is more processing going on. But I don't think the sensor has any more resolution.

    I tried the following recipe an iPhone 3G photograph. (using Photoshop)
    1) Rescale to 2000x1500
    2) Adjust levels a bit to crush the blacks
    3) Run despeckle

    And boom! - you end up with an image which looks just like a 3GS image.

    I looked at some of my iPhone pictures at 100%, and they have the same kind of noise. I guess I never noticed it before.

    But the 3G S does seem more pronounced.

    Even if it's the same sensor resolution, they're still better photos.
