Camera resolution on the CECT P168

The camera of the P168 is a complicated topic and a disappointment for more than one.

The features list says 2 MP camera but most of the people i saw complaining said they have a 1.3 MP and some others (including me) only can set the resolution to 640x480 (VGA) which is very poor in this times.

The difference seems to be on the model and i don't mean P168 or P168+ but the chip inside the phone.

We can have one of three chips on it.
The worst one is the MT6226 with VGA camera, some others have the MT6226M with 1.3 MP and the lucky ones (i envy you people) have the MT6227 with 2.0 MP

I have a doubt though: Are they different cameras in each phones or is the firmware installed on each chip the one responsible for the top resolution we can set?
If that is the case maybe in the future we could update it and then be able to select between VGA, 1.3 or 2.0
I hope that is the case but for now i don't have an answer.

I got the 640x480 version too. Takes ok pics outside but was kind of a disappointment.

It's even more complex (not to say "cheating") - the fact that you can define 1028x1280 in the menu does not mean that the picture really will be taken in that size. If you have this option, make a try & then check the fotos that was really taken: most likely, it is only 480 x 640 in size.

In other words: the fraud is built into the phone.
