LED vs. Xenon flash

I have an iPhone 5 and a Nokia 808 as my personal phones. I use my 808 as my main smartphone/camera, and the iPhone 5 as a gaming/weekend.. entertainment device.

I've tried using the iphone 5's flash while going out at night with friends, and I must say its pretty much useless compared to the 808.

here is one example

Iphone 5

808 PureView

Notice how much larger the iphone 5's jpeg file is compared to the 808's.. the 808 oversampling algorithm cleans up all the junk Combined with a xenon flash.. it works very well.
