I’m not quite sure what this infographic is trying to prove, but it sure is misleading. If you rate something as being “number 1″ by how much it’s used, there might be a point, but in any other way, say “number 1″ meaning you get the best pictures out of it (the goal of a camera one might say?), an iPhone can’t properly compete with digital SLR camera’s.
The section where the price of the thing is compared to all the individual products is most odd to me. It assumes that in all instances that you would use the individual product (like a laptop to surf the web), it can fully replace it. An iPhone might be able to view web pages, but with nowhere like the experience you get of a desktop. It then also assumes that you use that product for only that 1 purpose.
Also, I have no idea what the first graph is all about, it’s isn’t labelled (at least not obviously). 325% what, packs of custard, beers, pieces of toast?
Sorry, I’m a big fan of infographics, but I find this more frustrating then informative.
Totally agree with Jaap. Even a normal camera or even my old Innov8 cell phone which has advanced settings and better camera qualities than Iphone 4 handle those situations far better.
