Terry Breedlove: USB is ancient crappy technology. The way forward is wireless transfer between devices and the cloud.

I bet you have at least 3 USB devices that are connected to your computer right now. =D

Apple is insolent and wouldn't want to include a very simple USB port but instead opted to milked their customers with expensive adapter.

Shamael: I have an android tablet that performs like a dream, with hdmi output, with a classic usb port, with a 64 gig sdx slot, and it was available with 8 gig base memory for 115$ in 9 inch format.
The same in 9.7 inch format is 135$. So, in what does apple now wants to revolution the market? I will buy an Archos 13 inch tablet soon, for 220$. I have it up to the throat from this "mini" scrap. My next retina android with 10.1 inch is 220$. Is there not here a lesson to learn for apple?

Best ecosystem? Gimme a break. You are stuck with expensive apps on it while you can get it for free on google playstore. Majority of the features in iOS have been implemented years before that in Android and Windows.

Do more? Are you joking? iPad is a dumbed-down overpriced device with crippled features. OS wise, nothing beats Android and Windows when it comes to doing more on the device. And you don't need to buy adapter just to attach expensive peripherals on it.

So what's new in this iTab? A 15 years technology with a camera sensor tinier than a pinhead and crammed with more pixels? Still no USB, no card reader, no real multitasking, 100% more expensive than competitor's tablets?

CyberAngel: It's a hard sell to try the sell cameraphones to a gearhead.
Lack of manual controls (Menneisyys claims that API is lacking)
Lack of OIS
Lack of Xenon flash
Sensor size
I can't even see where the lens is???
It's like calling your rowing boat a battleship or carrier
Even the Lumia 1020 fails miserably as a camera
yet it's the current top of the line with 4x sensor area
but also oversaturated oversharpened no RAW left&right part of the 38 Mpx always totally pixalated => small lens, etc
It's better to have a decent snapper (RX-100) always with.
On the other other hand I like the Lumia 1020 as an example where the smartphones are going
The iPhone 5S is most likely the top most old tech camPhone
and a talented person can get reasonable shots from it in good light.
Apple! Move on! Do some innovation! Enhance also the API!

Or abandon the ship and focus on improving the phone call/text/web functionality.

A camera with a sensor 10x smaller than Nokia 808 placed 2nd? Are they hallucinating? Without the side-by-side comparison of photos, that DX0Mark should not be taken seriously.

dgmessenger: Proves mobile phones are great for Instagram! I think we already knew that. More impotantly, it proves it's not the arrow but the Indian (pc: indigenous north american hominid). His photos would look hardly different if using another high end mobile phone camera. Cheers.

They all will look the same in 4 inch display.

Jogger: Whats missing from the article: WHO PAID FOR HIS TRIP?

Thanks.

Lol how come DXOcrap ranked 5s next to 808 when it has far mediocre sensor? That blind test is a huge slap on the face of delusional iPhonies who think their phone is the best.

"Last week, Richardson left his Nikon DLSR at home and instead took his iPhone 5S on a trip to the Scottish Highlands. Unsure at first whether it was a good idea, Richardson quickly realized that while his iPhone wasn't exactly capturing "visually profound" images, he didn't feel like he was settling for second best, either."

I doubt if that is not intentional. Why would you leave the most important tool you are using in your professional job?

Any crappy phone can produce these appealing images at web size and the credit should go only to the photographer because of his eye for composition and not to the iPhone.

The biggest should have been insta-crap photos. Those lousy filters are completely unnecessary and a photo with great composition will be a great photo. No need to hide those mediocre IQ of iPhones and other phones. And FWIW, a photo should not be square in aspect ratio all the time.

jcmarfilph: So lemme guess Nokia should score 10/10 and Galaxy 9/10 and Apple 8/10

Actually, mediocre sensor, lack of manual controls, lousy ergonomics and poor IQ should make the score 6/10. Looking at the score bars, this phone is mediocre at best.

SergioMO: In low light and web size, Lumia 1020 is much much better then iphone. In good light I prefer S4 and Lumia 1020.

So to keep it simple, 1020 is much better and iPhone sucks?

webrunner5: I am a big fan of cellphones taking pictures, but these are not very good overall.

And you can't get better shots that those using any other phone except Nokia 808.

Azurael: So LG didn't learn much from the shoddy camera on the Optimus G/Nexus 4 then...

Really?

I compared the pictures both on Nexus 4 and iPhone5 side-by-side and I did not see any difference. They both produced pleasing image within their display's resolution and size. When I zoomed in, both are horrible. So these mediocre phones except Nokia are best viewed at 1-2MP max resolution only.
