Image Quality Compared (Studio - Low Light)

 

In our low light test scene the Samsung Galaxy S3 The Samsung Galaxy S3 produces a relatively clean image but this comes at the expense of detail as a lot of fine textures are blurred away by the heavy-handed noise reduction. Compared to the other cameras in this test the Samsung's output looks very soft.

The iPhone offers a more balanced approach between noise reduction and detail retention and looks overall a little softer than the HTC output which has more aggressive sharpening applied to it. Both produce more detail than the S3 though. Yet again the Nokia 808 Pureview produces the best results in this test, offering detail resolution at ISO 400 that is far superior to the other cameras in this selection when examined closely.
