I love the idea, but I didn't really feel moved by the results. Cute, but just not exceptional.

Yes. they are all quite good, but only a handful have any signs of originality. Its a tough thing to do and a winner should reflect that.

brent collins: Overall the iPhone 5s is clearly superior to any of the others. Add up all the pros vs cons and there is no other conclusion possible to anyone who is objective. Corner sharpness alone crushes the Nokia. None will replace my DSLR, Micor4/3 or even my aging G6, but when it's all you've got I'd take the 5s anyday.

I checked them all very carefully and the sponge, brushes and other items look terrible from the Nokia.

Although after glancing at your posting history, it appears that YOUR opinion is one based on being a Samsung fan. A bit hypocritical if you ask me.

Nothing to do with being an Apple fan. I compared the 4 phones displayed in the article.

brent collins: "Mediocre JPEG processing with mushy detail and visible artifacts" does not equal a score of 78. MANY people shoot only jpeg.

Wow, just wow. What a hypocritical person. And also one who obviously LOVES to exaggerate. I read a review and gave MY opinion. I didn't realize that only certain people can respond to Sony reviews. Fanboy calling fanboys....too funny.

Sensibill,

I own several brands and have zero bias. Each one has it's strengths. My posting history? Really? It's simple math. Why would I buy a camera of lesser IQ for more money. My EPL2 beats the Sony at jpeg. That matters to me and many others who use these cameras for quick easy outings when the DSLR is more than needed. Whine? I made a comment and gave some opinions. The only one acting like a child is you.

Not a matter of learning. I shoot RAW almost all the time, but when my Epl2 can crush the Sony at jpeg with a higher selling price I then have reservations. To attack a persons choice to shoot jpeg and expect quality is idiotic

Simon97: I agree with DPR's assessment. Shoot this thing RAW to get the 24mp resolution expected.

Noise at higher ISOs is a disappointment. Low noise at high ISO is part of the attraction of larger sensors. Compared the other cameras RAW noise is two stops worse and nearly 3 stops vs. the K5. The Sony 16mp sensor seems to be the current APS-C champ. This camera is a victim of the megapixel race. RIP

no, I'm saying that it's all subjective. Like I said several times before....get a Sony and we will have a challenge. Prove me wrong....

Hahahahahaha. At 800 ISO it can't even beat my E-PL1 let alone my 7D. And I'm viewing this on my iPad with should surly mask any minor differences. Too bad the difference isn't minor.....it's painfully obvious.

Most people who have drinking problems place their beverage of choice in a different container to conceal the problem or skirt legal issues of open container laws.

Sad to see people like this, but contrary to some, it's not a matter of luck. Also, it's clearly a female.
