Hi.

I am not talking about the advantages and disadvantages of one or the other and other functions like OIS.

Only for the quality of photos in the best studio conditions Nokia 1020 RAW versus Nokia 808 JPEG.

RAW is nearly always better. 808 has good details rendering but DR (highlights vs shadows) is just not on par and you cannot do anything with that. However RAW processing needs some extra work - which you may like or not.

you can underexpose (-0.3 for example) and pull the details in PP, it's not RAW but it does the job

also Nokia 1020 takes ages to save&process RAW files, then you have a computer processing etc. not really practical

RAW on phones and small sensors in general is nowhere near as useful as on bigger cameras, Panasonic phonecamera with its 1" sensor springs to mind, that's where you can really see the difference and that's the only phone(well, camera with phone functions) which can give better pictures than 808 in most situations

mmm, no, we've had this discussion before, no need to dredge it up again, comparisons show the 808 edges the CM1 in IQ, even DPReview who reviewed both give the 808 the edge in IQ, go take a look. here's a screen grab of the 2 compared, that little extra yellow bit for the 808 at still image quality...
