iPhone 5 camera vs Galaxy S4, Nokia Lumia 920

For those that value camera quality inside smartphones when purchasing for the first time, you will appreciate a new study that has been published online, comparing the cameras inside the iPhone 5, the Samsung Galaxy S4 and also Nokia’s popular Lumia 920 smartphone as well.

DxO Labs are camera specialists based in France and the team recently conducted a test to see which out of the popular smartphones on the market has the best camera. Examining parameters such as exposure, contrast, color, autofocus, texture, noise, artifacts and finally flash, the company has concluded that the Samsung Galaxy S4 currently offers a better camera quality compared to the iPhone 5 and Lumia 920, as highlighted by CNET.

When tested in the fields above, the Galaxy S4 produced a score of 79 out of 100, while the iPhone 5 could only manage a 74 in the process. Nokia includes a 8.7 megapixel PureView camera with the Lumia 920, but Dx0 Labs has only given the device a camera score of 64 out of 100, with “disappointing autofocus accuracy” and “poor sharpness and texture” the reasons for the low score.

It’s worth pointing out that the Galaxy S4 was not the overall winner in terms of which phone had the best camera on the market period. That award went to the Nokia 808 PureView, which managed a fantastic score of 81 out of 100, thanks to an amazing flash and DSC-like camera features.

If you plan to take their report seriously, then it looks like the Samsung Galaxy S4 has the better camera compared to the iPhone 5. However, Apple may be looking to change all that by improving the camera inside the iPhone 6 or iPhone 5S – whichever comes first.

Take a look at the analysis for yourself and let us know what you think of the results. How impressed are you with the Samsung Galaxy S4 camera? Are you also disappointed with how the Nokia Lumia 920 camera performed?

Personally, I find that the 920 has the best real-life camera performance I’ve seen. When I find myself taking pics w/mine while other do so w/their i5 or whatever, half of the time they throw their pics out b/c they’re too dark while my 920’s far superior low-light performance gives me great photos.
