Azurael: So LG didn't learn much from the shoddy camera on the Optimus G/Nexus 4 then...
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.
So why no iPhone 5s? It would have been nice to see it being stomped by these cameras.
And FWIW, the nokia night shot is obviously blurry so to include it in the comparison is useless. ISOs should have been fixed to one value for a fair comparison.
I'd rather have a grip at the back of it so I can hold the phone better for snapshots.
jcmarfilph: This is the kind of improvement we would like to see from a mobile phone. Not just a crappy OS update by some unnamed Company. =D
Where in my post did I mention those words? =D

Yawn.... yet another Apple news. Nothing new...
Jogger: Editorial??? More like, Advertorial.
If you are to count the iCrap-related articles in DPR and Connect, it is like 7 to 3 (Android, Windows, Others).
Tonkotsu Ramen: Compacts are done.
Compared to my 50$ GE A950, iPhone is better in doing auto-panos, the rest in terms of photography goes to GEA950. And oh it cannot make phone calls, SMS and browsing. =D
Much better implementation than those worthless spycam accessories for iPhone.
Holger Drallmeyer: mew..average cell phone garbage. What a wast of time.
Those high ISOs are dreadful! But you can print them at credit card size.
AngryCorgi: These panos look freaking great for having been made on a camera phone. Really nice stitching on the image borders. I'm shocked.
Really great? The stitching is horrible if you look closer to the pic. There are far better stitching softwares out there for e.g Microsoft ICE that can produce far superior panos than this and even compact cams.
photo perzon: I'm getting good pictures
A 50$ P&S camera takes better pictures than this.
Those window frames are horrible and might cut your fingers and glasses will fall anytime of the day.
Hmmm it may have captured the action through hopes and prayers than one of the burst shots will work but the IQ is subpar beyond the average output of a P&S cam which is more capable.
barjohn: Unless my eyes are deceiving me, in good light the 5 looks better than the 5S.
These phones (Except Pureview) are half-decent in daylight close-up shots nothing more nothing less so enjoy snapping those faces for FB and insta-crap uploads.
Even with the so-called 1.5 pixel pitch which is useless because of the mediocre sensor.
1020 is clearly superior in IQ, even if you normalize the resolution. I am not sure how an iPhone camera with sensor smaller than a pinhead would excite a photographer?
jcmarfilph: Why not just say "Mobile Phone studio comparison tool?" Do you really have to put iPhone word in the title? Why not Nokia or Samsung Studio comparison? Is that how desperate Apple now to get more sales?
Doesn't make sense to me, 1020 is also new.
Did you create a dedicated Nokia Studio Comparison article when they released the 1020?
I would rather call this Mobile Phone Camera Studio Comparison and then include on the tags the cameras being compared...

Not a comment on this one but on that POTD (upper right). Did the earth stop rotating or revolving now? It's kinda irritating to see that picture everyday now. Should have been Picture of the Month or Year if DPR wants to show it that long.
