Day Galaxy S4, night Lumia 920. End of games.
If I had to do only a name, Lumia 920. Even if in the morning light it doesn't perform well, thanks to CRAZY nokia's noise-reduction and sharpening algoritms, it's still more than adequate for web (@2mpx) and little prints.
Benarm: Great alternative for 17-55/2.8 lens if you're willing to trade some zoom range for more light, Nikon and Canon have been ignoring to update their fast crop lens for a awhile now.
Without 50/55mm no portraits, the only annoying thing of this wonderful lens.
About softness, maybe you have the same pre-production One that hardwarezone had. They also reported softness, and HTC send them another One , that hadn't issues, in fact it gives visibly sharper images than the old One they had.

Are you serious? Really? Are you the same of DPreview or are you stealing only the name?It takes bravery to call this "camera review".Even I could do this "camera review".
Please be serious and start doing cameraphone reviews at the level I can see on your mother site (?) and for wich I know you are able to.
Quick pic on android: double tap to fit screen, another double tap to 100%.
However, the fact that standard galleries on ios and android doesn't have 100% visualization is outrageous.
They really surprised me. I never thought that they built a new sensor in house. My idea was a 12 mpx 1/3" that generate 4 mpx images thanks to processing like nokia pureview.
And the same, optical stabilization... wow! Lumia 920 is not alone anymore.
If the optics had been F1.4, we were talking about a monster.But even with F2 it's really a HUGE camera department.
Really appreciate your efforts, HTC!
P.S. sorry my english. I'm italian and writing (and thinking) fast :D
dpfan32: Funny no one is discussing the XZ-10 :)IMHO they took a too small sensor.To provide better quality than an iPhone 5 they need something like 1/1.7" or bigger. 1/2.3" can't shoot significant better photos than a good smartphone camera (not to mention the 808 PureView)
XZ-10 eats an iPhone for breakfast.Are you really comparing a 1/3.2" sensor and 30mm F2.4 lens with a 1/2.3" sensor and, more important, a real zoom 26-130mm eq with F1.8-2.7?
I don't think so.
The screen isn't 16/9. It is an AMOLED 15/9 3,3" and 800x480 of resolution.
It has 384K pixel, but only 768K subpixel (or dot as you like) because it's a pentile amoled and not an RGB.
It's the same screen Samsung already used on Wave S8500 smartphone.
This lens don't forgive. At F1.4 focus area is so thin, i'd probably have stopped to F2 to get this shot with leaf entirely on focus.
I really hate square format re-introduced by instagram, it's only a waste of sensible surface from my already tiny image sensor.In fact most frequent request in instagram app comments is "please add more image format" and I totally agree.
It's not out of focus, I think he wanted to focus on the head stock of the guitar on pourpose.Sureley not the best foto ever, however. :)
Waiting for review of supersampling Apple's implementation.
New model useful to low the old model price, nothing more. Next time maybe it will be time to add a faster lens, competitors have 1.8-2.5 aperture range since quite a lot...
