Sony Xperia S camera wins cowboy shootout against the iPhone 4S, Nokia Lumia 800 and the Galaxy S II
In a shootout designed to determine whose camera can capture a photo the fastest, the Sony Xperia S lived up to its maker's claims. The cowboy shootout against the iPhone 4S, Nokia Lumia 800 and the Galaxy S II was organized to measure the time it takes the phone to focus and take a snap from a cold start.

The Xperia S with its 12MP Exmor R sensor took 1.8 seconds, a tad over the 1.5 that the commercials claimed, while the Nokia Lumia 800 came up pretty close to that as well. The iPhone 4S and the Galaxy S II both took over 5 seconds, when the cowboys counted the time needed to start the camera app with the on-screen button, and then use the virtual shutter key to take a picture.

Of course, both the Xperia S and the Lumia 800 have dedicated camera buttons on the side that take you directly into snapping a picture, without having to go through icons, which worked aggressively in their favor. Watch the funny shootout video below, Clint Eastwood would be proud.

This was brilliant!

And a fact for all of you not seeing farther from Samsung, Apple, and Nokia - SONY XPERIA S IS THE BEST PHONE YOU CAN BUY RIGHT NOW.
And will likely stay the best (counting out U.S. only phones like Xperia Ion) all the way to galaxy s 3 release.

The Nokia Lumia 800 would have been a fine phone had it been launched in 2010. With the exception of an 8mpx camera, it has a lot in common with the now discontinued HTC Desire.
