Phone makers, stop lying about how good your cameras are

Samsung has been caught for the second time trying to pass off photos from a DSLR camera as image samples from its phones. In the latest instance, its Malaysian division was spotted using a shot taken a year ago by photographer Dunja Djudjic to talk up the capabilities of its mid-range Galaxy A8 Star.

The company previously pulled a similar stunt for its Galaxy A8 in Brazil in August. That month, Huawei was also caught red-handed because an actor in its TV commercial inadvertently exposed the trickery with a behind-the-scenes photo that showed a DSLR camera being used to capture a ‘sample image.’
