Durandalfr: LOL, people spit on the nokia 808 for having a small bump on the back and not being as flat as GS3, how people cannot put such a big phone into their pocket and blahblahblah. Now you have an hybrid phone/camera with an ugly degigne and miraculously, maybe because it's samsung's, pocket can now contain that king of design. People are brainless.
Damn, I had to leave before I could correct the typos and now it's "too late".

Decoboy: Why is there a DX-Mark-Mobile score? Why not the same test as per a P&S. What is different & how can one compare results? If phone cameras are as good as the hype, why the need to create a differant score - if they are supposed to be useful as a camera then just test them using the same scoring as other (compact) fixed lens cameras.
what's the point lars? do you test dslr without lens when they come naked or use only the combo lens? You don't adapt the camera position to match the same composition in the studio scene? There are a few fixed lens compact cameras. DPR reviewed some of them? how do you think they did?
If the cameraphones should replace compact camera one day, better test now in what they are equal to them by giving compact cameras a fair comparison, by including, for exemple, the phone cameras results in the DPR studio scene comparator
Michael Pardee: I would like to see the S4 scores for the metrics dxo normally uses for camera sensors: Color Depth, Dynamic Range, Low-Light ISO. I know they might be pitiful, maybe they don't want to make the camera phones look bad since they get their money from advertising.
Alternatively I would like to see normal dpreview camera reviews list those 7 metrics : exposure/contrast, color, autofocus, texture, noise, photo artifacts, flash. (at least the ones that are applicable) Some numbers to back up dpreview's pulled-out-of-the-air final percentage scores wouldn't hurt.
Why are there two separate sets of criteria? I know camera phones, compacts, and interchangable lens camera could be considered completely different categories and might use different scales for rating, but I would think there could at least be a common set of metrics.
So it's the occasion to criticize the over-postreatment on some phone camera :o
lol 82% for the tiny led "flash" while they give 81% to the 808 xenon flash. are they out of their mind?
In term of pure noise, there is an improvement over 5DMk2, but against the D800... reduced at the same size, the D800 has in overall better noise than the 5D3 and we shouldn't talk about the monstruous D4.... I'm a canon fan but how the hell canon isn't able to equal nikon which, as I read somewhere on DPR, isn't manufacturing his own sensors (Sony)?
Durandalfr: I will only buy it if it brings a slowmo video mode (120 or 240fps).
well I would like to have it in replacement of my little viewty which can do 120fps, at least.

first time since long I haven't been fascinated like that by a video. Awesome
I checked the last picture with Kevin Lynch. I googled the name and find the original picture which is perfectly sharp. They used a mere photoshop motion blur on it. easy to recover (try with focus magic)...
What about blur with all our camera noise?
