Smartphone camera comparison includes top choices


If you’re thinking of purchasing a new smartphone and the camera capabilities are important to you, then you may be interested in a new smartphone camera comparison. This involves some of the very top choices of handsets available including the new iPhone 5S, Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy S4 and LG G2.

It can be pretty difficult to know just how some of the best phones out there compare when it comes to their camera set-ups, and that’s where this should come in handy. All of the handsets used for this comparison offer decent camera experiences, but which is seen as best overall?

Photos of the same settings and in the same lighting and weather conditions were taken on all of the handsets involved as well as the Panasonic Lumix GH2 camera being used as a reference point. You can see a cropped image below showing the same sample shot with each smartphone, and no doubt there will be differing opinions on which device did the best job.

Separate scores for each phone were given for different image factors such as detail, color representation, macro and close ups, indoor, night, and video. To see the vast full array of images taken with the above phones, head to Phone Arena. At the end of testing and taking all of the above aspects into account, Phone Arena gave an overall score for the camera performance of each smartphone.

The Apple iPhone 5S and LG G2 were both equal top on 7.3 points. Next were the two Samsung phones, the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 with 6.7 and 6.3 points respectively. Following these was the HTC One and the Motorola Moto X both with a score of 5.5, and trailing behind was the Motorola Droid Ultra on 5.3.

It would have been very interesting if one of the Nokia Lumia smartphones was also used in this comparison. However, this will at least give an idea of how some of the best phones compete against each other in this respect.

You may have your own opinions on whether you agree with their ratings above, as judgments on this can be very subjective. Therefore we’d very much like to hear your thoughts. If you check out the full comparison for yourselves we’d appreciate it if you would head back to us and let us have your verdicts.

Which smartphone photography set-up do you think gave the best results? Do you agree with the iPhone 5S and LG G2 being equal top?
