And the dislikes are coming in 3...2...1. Half of them are android fans who want to thrust their opinion as always true down others throats, half of them blindly hate anything non-android, half of them know nothing about laws, company policies and patent system yet come and comment here.

I can't understand them hard core fans! It's all there for them to see yet they can't seem to digest it!
I like Android, i like Nokia...i like everything in technology that is reasonable and rational.
But when people comment silly things like this...it's just stupid. Why wouldn't we agree that Z has the better camera if the images were clean, clear and better than the 808 or 920 or whatever the competition is?
Man! It's war down here...

LOL Sony is still trying to catch up to the N8!!!

These fan boys just cant accept that Nokia has better camera's then their laggy Quad Core androids, which they actually have no use for except benchmark score's! Lmao!

Nokia 808 is outstanding, Xperia S and N8 are very good too. Lumia 920's photos look noisy, and Xperia Z has blurry photos with very low details.

Sony, fix your f**king software

on the other note, this can be easily faked since PA hates Sony

I wish they compared more "real life" pictures. A lot of these just looked zoomed in so obviously the 808 will fare better. How about comparing pics people would actually take on a day to day basis?

None of them were zoomed in. The 808 has a wider fov, its as simple as that.

This guy has "shaking" hands. All pictures are bad and unclear, especially on Sony. Also, I think he used old version of L920 without update of camera app.

Nokia obviously has the best smartphone cams, but lets agree to dissagree, coz the Android brats won't ever be able to let this rest ;o)

I don't think comparing another camera with 808's is a good idea. 808 have the best camera. But not the OS. Hahaha. Even 920's camera isn't better, I think.

What does the OS have to do with a camera comparison?

plus that Symbian device has more features then an iphone! also it can do everything what android can do with less resources!

You and UrbanPhantom should shut up. Everyone who feels Nokia/Apple/iOS/Symbian/MeeGo/WP/MS are good should do the same and leave this forum. The only thing is android is god. Accept it or leave it. If you know what I mean/

Never had a problem with symbian just learning how to use it still not hating or anything I actually dont use my note 2 and iphone 5 to learn how to use the phone.

its not hard to learn if you picked up android etc

main plus points are battery consumption and the fact it runs smooth on less then other os's

I have a hard time believing that the settings for image stabilization on the Xperia Z were not turned on. My Xperia Ion with little less of a camera takes better quality photos.

Wow. So let's see:

Terrible washed out screen
Poor viewing angles
Amateur ergonomics
No SD card
Non removable battery
Mediocre battery life
No wireless charging
No dedicated camera button
Super expensive
Fragile glass back
2012 processor tech

Missing anything?

Sony is so obsolete in today's tech world. Wonder how much longer they will hang around...

Lumia 920
No sd card slot
Poor os
Less apps
Dual core processor. Others are using quad core and now moving to octa core
Non removable battery
Poor multi tasking
Weight of a brick
