iictchromepet: Camera is not up to the mark...

pretty hard considering how small small and thin the camera optic has to be tosort of fit the super slim iPhone 6s housing.

impressive, wonder if there is any improvements in sensor sensitivity?

Hmm, looking at the first pic in the garden with shutter 1/380. The detail is indeed impressive in the foreground, but then looking into the background, the trees seems a little mottled or water colored. Could this be possibly due to the Noise reduction algoorithm, or is the just the way the image processing engine is interpreting the trees in the background?

Sutjahjo Ngaserin: I am a very happy user of Lumix DMC-CM1 and I think it's absolutely the best Phone camera today. Despite the general negative low light comments here, I also think it performed very well in low light. At least better than any other phone I know (And I am one phone freak trying out most high end phones in the market). Do note that I am NOT comparing this to NON-PHONE cameras.

yup agree, the tests are based on automatic settings. But, on saying that, the Panasonic does need to use higher ISO to compensate for the lack of optical stabilization in the other phones.

If the scene could be captured with the aid of a tripod, there is without a doubt the CM1 and the 808 would trump the competition.

Jarda_Houdek: Not good enough to replace my Lumia 1020 but nice try.

eh, The lens on the CM1 is indeed very capable and is no worst than the Zeiss on the Lumia. Infact the 1020's Zeiss lens suffers more from corner softness than the Leica in the CM1. At least with the CM1, there is the ability to close the aperture down to sharpen up corners for landscapes, whereas on the 1020, there is no option for a variable aperture.

Windows phone OS is a nice OS, but sadly, there still seems a lacking in app support compared to Android and iOS.

good to see DPR still acknowledges the 808's DPR score to be the highest. Shows DPR knows it phone cameras ;)

ottonis: Disappointing low-light performance for a 1" sensor! Even the old and venerable Nokia 808 shows a substantially better image quality in the low light-simulation of the studio comparison scene.

true, also the CM1 is able to do long exposures up to 30 seconds, the 808 can only do max 2.7 seconds.

joao salvador: I have and use the iphone 6 and the Note 4. Samsung for everyday/work and iphone as second contact phone and for weekends. The Note 4 is clearly the best for pictures and video. The iphone lags beyond but takes fantastic panoramas and sometimes gives you more natural colours. Problem is the Note is sometimes awkward to use and always requires two hands to get sharp pictures even with ois. But when you manage to keep it steady it provides clearly better results than the iphone. My wife has the 6+ and despite the ois it has the same problems of stability as the Note. So, in my opinion, it's the iphone for panoramas and the Note for everything else (provided you can keep it steady). Maybe the S6 will be the best of both worlds. BTW: my RX 100 smokes all of the above and it's not much more difficult to carry than the Note 4 or 6+!

hmm I used to own an LX3, and it did not even get close to smoking my 808. In good light, there is no competing against the 41MP sensor. In low light, the LX3 was exceptionally noisy at any ISO above 200.

The feature I liked best from the LX3 was the CCD type sensor. This made for exceptional video quality for fast panning video capturing as there would be absolutely NO rolling shutter of jello effect. Sadly though when capturing video the zoom and AF is disabled, so essentially you have to prefix your focus and zoom focal length before you start recording.

Mister Roboto: Ok we get it, you like the crappy iPhone when there are tons of better smartphones( hello Nokia, Panasonic, Samsung) with camera or simply a real and dedicated camera. =D

the 808 and 1020 agree definitely can capture far more detail than the iPhone, but the Note4 only is better than the latest iPhone by a small margin in my opinion.

worldcup1982: nothing beats the nokia 808 still.
waiting for the successor, if there will ever be one.
the 1020 is worse, worse lens,worse timing...

back to the 808 and possibly the 1020. None of these mobiles on the top list have a lossless digital zoom! I find this feature indispensable for taking site photos, where I need to use zoom to get closer. Also having a "lower resolution" 3MP is ideal, for site images, as massive detail is not required, just good detail on the area of interest.

Unless the photo taken is going to be enlarged printed or post cropped, there is no real reason to use more than 8mp. Even so the lower 3Mp is a life saver for space efficiency.
