More OnePlus One camera and feature samples appear, photos get compared with the 20 MP Xperia Z1
The unveiling of the OnePlus One must have shaken the big names in the mobile industry, given that it's a $300 phone that carries the specs of a $600 handset from a major manufacturer, and then some. It flaunts a 5.5" 1080p display, Snapdragon 801 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 13 MP rear camera with Sony sensor, plus a 3,100 mAh battery, as far as specs go, and runs a custom version of the light and functional CyanogenMod 11, so there's plenty of value for the money here.

If you have been curious how the Sony Exmor RS IMX124 sensor behaves itself, or how the new Cyanogen 11S overlay performs, look no further than the slideshow below. There are video demos of the most important features on the phone, as well as plenty of camera samples, including low-light, indoor, macro, selfies and 4K footage, so dig in, and tell us what you think about the OnePlus One afterwards.

It's more to do with what it was shooting rather than the camera used though. I bet any camera could've captured the image the way the Z1 did.

That's right they didn't mention what firmware z1 is running. But still it's a good camera as well, given it's a Sony .

12. Ashoaib (Posts: 1831; Member since: 15 Nov 2013)


What good???? The phone which is less than half of z1's launching price, performing almost equal... ins't it a shame for z1 or sony?

posted on 09 May 2014, 08:38 1

15. Ashoaib (Posts: 1831; Member since: 15 Nov 2013)


Given that, they are also using sony's sensor which is less powerful than the one used in z1... so does it mean sony only knows how to manufacture a good sensor but dont know how to utilize it optimally?

the OPO photos looks great and awesome thanks to the excellent optimization between the software and the hardware of the camera just i hope that sony learns this and makes good software for there smartphones

They are afraid to compare it with the Nokia Lumia 1020.

No one is affraid, oneplusone is not their father's company... grow up kid and post something reasonable... nokia is another plateform... it is better to compare an android device with an android device

You see, the quality in photos depends not only to the camera and the technology (pure view, g-lens) but depends from camera algorithms too.

Absolutely! You are right... algotithm is very important. this is the reason, many companies uses sony's sensor and usually out perform sony or atleast performing close with using less power version of sensor, even when sony uses higher mega pixels or larger sensor

Go back to your wp ! And by th way , try something like Sony RX100 with a real smartphone (Note 3) or other Android and compare your old life with 1020. R.I.P. Nokia. No wp ! Apple got it ... "Ari Partinen has just announced that he's leaving the Finnish company for the Cupertino giant."

hahaha....all pure view technology and patents belongs to NOKIA, apple CAN'T use the same camera technology that Nokia uses in the Lumia phones...cuz if they do this the Microsoft (that took some patents from Nokia including pure view) and Nokia will sue Apple .

Just wait and see ! By the way , did you try the RX100 ??? You´ll throw your 1020 away, used one by $350.

Actually I don't own the Lumia 1020, I got the Nokia Lumia 920 and I'll take the Lumia 930 in October.

Awesome pics!!! that #1 image by z1 was just breathe-taking.

26. Astoni (Posts: 489; Member since: 28 Sep 2013)


This is BS.. Since kitkat the z1 got a huge improvment in the camera deparment BUT! the biggest problem it has is Macro shots. It can't focus on thing that are about a Fingers length away without getting blurr. So if the first pic isnt zoomed in its utterly BS.

I am disappointed with the night and low light images. Macro and daily shots are great!
