Hate to say this, but once you zoom in, it's clear that the GS4 struggles with detail, everything has fuzzier edges. If this is how the images will look in the launch hardware, things are not looking good.

struggle with the detail? What I see is that, if you zoom in on the screen of the s3 captured by both devices, you could a very sharp details from s4 while ip5 captures rather, soft details. try the 5th and 6th photos. :)

Try the Samsung logo and the earpiece instead. S4 is clearly much more fuzzy.

i think the cause of that fuzziness is the lighting that was directed on the earpieace and logo on the 5th photo. Try the sides of the s3(lower left photo). You can see that it is more refined compared to ip5. :)

also, try the other photos. consider lighting of the part of the pictures that have the same amount of light. :)

Both take great pictures, but I have to go with Galaxy S4 on this one.

White balance looks better on S4 but detalis still iphone 5 has more sharper pics. Don't get me wrong i do like the S4 and the new Super Amoled looks great , but honestly Iphone 5 some pics and video looks better than S4.

The galaxy definitely takes it. The iphone owners are trying to get excuses of lightning issues. You guys better admit it. Apple is wack. As the tech race is heating up. I use a Z10, and that is even a wonderful experience than I had on my iphone. Easy and fast. Just swipes.

Are you commenting some images they didn't upload here? The iPhone struggles with the extreme contrast with the red background and the extremely bright table. And the Samsung has a stereo Mic. This one is a RSC win for the Galaxy S4.

I don't think SGS4 will get any close to HTC One when it comes to sound or low light capture.

As far as I know, the One records sound in mono like the iPhone? Try putting on some headphones and listen to the difference in the videos above. The mono sound makes it sound like he's sitting in a barrel while commenting the recording.

Do a S4 vs Note 2 please. Though I know already im waiting for the Note 3, i'm just curious. Wondering if the S4 camera is gonna be better then Note 2's which suffers from high ISO/noise issues with low lighting and poor software implementation of the flash and color balance. My Note 1 took better pictures all around then my Note 2, which greatly dissapointed me.

Your Note 2 has a problem. Mine is just as good as the S3.

Compare against the PureView? 41MP

Looking good. Sony probably should have kept it at 8mp though for less noise though. Interesting. I wonder if Apple is going to use this or stick with the 8mp for the iPhone 5s. I wouldn't be surprised if they used the same 8mp camera for the iPhone 5s.

Sony, Apple, and Samsung usually use the same or similar Sony sensors. Apple usually has the best camera software so we shall see if Apple uses the 13mp exmor rs or re use the old 8mp one.

The level is too far. GS4 is at Earth while IP5 is at Neptune. Sorry.

The camera is going to be the main deciding factor between this and the One for me.... it'll be a fight to death: 4 of htc's "ultrapixels" vs. 13 of sammy's shooters
