This is what I'm talking about! Can you do this PA? I'm impressed with the camera of OnePlus One, and yes it uses Sony's sensor. They managed to use Sony's sensor full capabilities! I hope my Z2 will get better and better with updates!

I doubt this photos came from a smartphone ! No EXIF data. They´re better than Nikon sometimes. Neither my 808 comes closer. If that´s real, no need to use Wp. Bye 1020 ! And Sammy will buy Oppo.

If the photos are genuine, then it does mean that Microsoft Mobile's camera advantage is essentially over.

I do wish some more Android phones would have the shutter button. Some of Sony's phones have the shutter button which I find easier to use than a volume button or tapping the screen.

Of course it looks better in low light, whoever made this couldn't even focus properly with the DSLR, and a good camera is only half the story.

Not to mention that all the pictures are made with macro mode. Otherwise it has impressive image quality, but we should all wait for a proper comparison.

That's because the person was using auto mode on the DSLR, so as to make the comparison more even.

These photos are from a OnePlus forum member that won a photo competition. He was comparing the Find 5, 1+1, and the Nikon 3100. You can see all the photos here:http://forums.oneplus.net/threads/comparison-oneplus-one-camera-against-find-5-and-a-dslr.2105/

He didn't mention using auto focus in the OP, but he did mention it later on in the thread.

Yeah, one reviewer (Btekt) said it can last 2 days on moderate use. Is that really true?

37. jaytai0106 (Posts: 1888; Member since: 30 Mar 2011)


Oh yes. I use it pretty heavily and still can last me entire day. When I put it on charge around 11pm It's usually around 30% and I take it off charge usually around 6am.

WOW that's great to hear! Especially after my N9. It has a weird battery. It can go down from 90% to 4% after 2 minutes of use in under 15 centigrades. Then, when I leave it in my pocket for about 30 minutes it suddently has 40% of battery lol. I guess that's not how a battery is supposed to work :)

I just can say one word... Gorgeous!! maybe colors are over saturated and a little touch in white balance is required but in real life the photos looks absolutely stunning!! O my gosh! with google camera app macro or bokah affect is nothing to worry about... and in extreme low light the One Plus one looks better!! imho.... A 400$ phone can do this job!! my next phone for sure!! I am sooooi glad that I didn't but the nexus 5 last week :-D :-D

Just if Sony could market their other products like the PS4, they wouldn't have to worry. But no :(

like i said... with plenty of light, almost all phones from 2013 and on wards, look the same. The only exciting thing about this phone for me is the price.

It won't be a future comparison, cus nothing else comes close to Nokia Lumia 1020.

Did your hear about 808 ??? By wp ! 1020 Is just a cameraphone and One + is a true android phone. If those photos are true ..

OMG, that's freaking amazing! Just look at the details, and the colors are saturated as well! I would also like to see how this stacks up against the big brothers (Z1, S5, One M8, G Pro 2, Find 7a, Lumia 1020 etc.) in this aspect.
