PhoneArena Awards 2013: Best cameraphones

0. phoneArena 03 Dec 2013, 11:01 posted on

Gone are the days when phones were good only for making calls and sending text messages. Today's top models can give us driving directions, play movies, run complex applications, and most importantly, capture photos and videos. In fact, cameraphones have evolved so much that many people don't bother carrying a dedicated point-and-shoot camera with them anymore, relying solely on their mobile device for snapping shots. That's why we absolutely had to include a category in our PhoneArena Awards dedicated to the year's best cameraphones...

I didn't see that presented in the title or the actual article itself. As far as I can tell "Best Cameraphones" could have been a flip phone with a camera.

Those are all high end phones. It doesn't matter what you think, its what the article says.. It says "the best camera phone".. It would make sense, or be fair to not include a phone on the best camera phone list just because it's not the companies best phone.. If that was the case then the 1020 shouldn't be allowed on the list because the 1520 is Nokias most advanced device available.. Whatever, none of that matters. It could be a feature phone, and if it had the camera, and software of the 1020 it would've won.. Your logic❔

Yeah, the Lumia 92x cameras are all still great, don't know why they get discounted so much. Whenever we take pictures at my office that we want to put into Social Media or other quick marketing materials, my coworkers always want to take the photos with my Lumia 928 "because it takes better photos than their iPhones." Not to knock the iPhone, which still has a good camera, but it's kinda true.

I understand the 920 not being on the list because of age,, but seriously, the 928, or 925 should've beat the iPhone.. Really, and I'm not saying this just because I'm a WP fan but the winners should be
1. Lumia 1020
2. Lumia 1520
3. Lumia 925

That's real❕

I agree that 1520 and z1 should be there, but iphone 5s has a very good auto camera, maybe it lacks some features, but it is definitely on of the best cameras for one-click photo taking

There's a lot of very good "auto cameras" But this is for the best cameras.. The 920, 925, and 928 are all more capable of taking better pictures than any iPhone, with minimal effort.. The iPhone just can't compete with WP nowadays.. Times have changed❕

Yeah, you might be right :) I am not sure about 920, but 925 and 5s cameras are quite close to each other, everyone decides personally what is better. But everybody knows that 1020 has a monster camera)

I have a 925 and my officemate a 5S. We are always talking about whose camera is better, believe me 5S is nowhere close.

Don't get me wrong, 5S takes great pictures better than most android flagships actually, but 925 is on a higher level.

When it comes to camera comparisons Nokia's should be out of the equation - it's a no contest.

Right.. But do you think that the iPhone's camera is anywhere near as good as the 1520's❔❔

You are just a regular hater, who probably doesn't know much about photography. Prove your opinion with facts. If you like s4 better, it doesn't mean that other phones are 's--t'. And don't tell me that I'm an apple fanboy, because I'm not.
