Smartphone Print Sizes

So you have this really nice smartphone, but you’re not sure how big you can make a print from its camera?  The chart below offers some very general guide-lines for print sizes from some of the most popular smartphone models.

Keep in mind that the chart below only references  the available megapixels for each model, and does not consider other important factors such as focus, subject or camera movement during exposure, how much light was available at the time, filters or special effects that were applied, etc.  This chart is an acceptable reference if all the above listed items are perfect. Anything that degrades the image quality will also limit the maximum enlargement size.

Of course, your own subjective opinion of what makes a “quality” photo should also be considered.

For maximum quality, we recommend you limit your print sizes to those listed in the 300ppi column.
Sizes in the 150ppi column should be considered the largest suggested print size for that particular model. Prints of sizes larger that this column will have reduced quality and may show some graininess, pixelization, look out-of-focus, or have other noticeable issues that can affect your satisfaction.

Since camera devices have such diverse image sensors, actual pixel dimensions may vary on yours.
Treat these numbers as approximates.
