6-way blind camera comparison: the results

0. phoneArena 29 Mar 2013, 11:02 posted on

Okay, guys, teasing time is over. Today we're revealing the results from our latest blind camera comparison, as well as the identities of all the smartphones that were used. A big "thank you" goes to everyone who cast their vote, and a 5 internets prize goes to those eagle-eyed few who named the handsets correctly in the comments! Perhaps you're all wondering which device we attached the mysterious Phone #4 moniker to. After all, that's the smartphone that got most of you guys' votes – in all three categories, for that matter...

Anyone else wonder what is wrong with PA's 920? It's universally praised, so these results are odd

So you're saying they should have just put the S"4" as phone #4 and the iPhone "5" as phone #5 so you know exactly what you're gonna vote for? What would be the purpose of the blind test then?

Quality on phone cameras rely on software. Basically up to the people who can tweak the sensor with the software and it just so happens the folks at Apple got that covered.

Sony makes much better hardware than software.

I'm s4 lover, s4 snaps are good but iphone5 are better than s4
but here the great thing about iphone5 is, it is 8MP camera but reamining all are 13MP camera, its really great that IPhone5 8MP is better than 13MP camera of all other mobiles

kudos to IPhone5

if IPhone5 relase 13MP what will be the pixel clarity, will wait and see any how it gonna release 12MP camera in up coming version.

No.. The iPhone won, the Sammy was a runner up with Nokia. I've never seen a fan be so obtuse.

According to what? this test? everywhere on the web people praise the 920's camera! everywhere it wins best camera or innovation awards! Only here on PhoneArena you get oversaturated 920 photos and Mediocre low light shots!

in dynamic varialbe envornament iphone5 is no way near the L920 although the camera on both are same magapixal same apurture the software is the differniator but hardware of L920 is more flexable for more senarios like open air night shots bumpy driving and things that are more fast pace iPhone and rest are only fine for static hold ur breath and take the pic like stuff and certianlly not for low light pics outdoor indoor isnt a place where we can really judge low light performance

Awaiting the "PA rigged the results in favor of iPhone" comments. Credit where credit is due: the #5 samples were the best and it did win. Still wonder why doesn't PA post comparisons with N8 or 808 though.

It really wouldn't make sense since everyone knows the gap would be embarrassing.
