Camera comparison: Huawei Ascend P7 and Oppo Find 7a vs Samsung Galaxy S5, LG G2, iPhone 5s, HTC One (M8), Sony Xperia Z1

0. phoneArena 14 May 2014, 08:11 posted on

Until recently, Huawei and Oppo were brand names with little to no recognition on the smartphone scene – pretty much nobody had heard about them. Things, however, have changed a bit over the past few years. Both companies have proven that they're capable of producing quality smartphones, and their current flagships – the Huawei Ascend P7 and the Oppo Find 7a – are built to compete with all those heavily advertised brand name flagships...

Z2 has production issues and was not available to include in this comperison.... this is a better logic for not including Z2

Yeah.. what's up with that? They've done the Z2 review, why didn't use the Z2 for the camera comparisons?

And then.. The high end Lumias were excluded again.

Lol where's Z2? Though the difference would have been minimal.

BTW it's interesting that all the camera comparisons you make with the same phones have very different results. I don't really want to trust on these kinds of test results.

:D Though I'm not sure if the carrier has even dispatch the phone yet... When I ordered it, they gave me a tracking code. It only shows that they have received my order and an hour after that they started to handle the order. It says nothing about the phone actually coming. A snail would transport packages faster lol. Well, I just have to hope that it comes soon.

I'm eager to see how the Lumia 1520 fares compared to the newer Android flagships.

Yet again, no Lumia. How hard is it for you to get one to review? Yeesh!

Since the last time Lumia 1520 won the Blind Test comparison, they've left out high end Lumias for the camera comparisons.

We need a 1520, Z2, S5, G Pro2, M8 and 7a camera comparison.

In 2014 I must say , if you wanna buy a flagship you shouldn't buy a Chinese .
But in 2018 I must say , if you wanna buy a flagship you you should buy a Chinese .
Because as I can see they are really improving in a super first rate .
It's not the case anymore that you use a Chinese phone only as a cheap alternative .

It's funny how people on this site despise samsung. When ever s5 is a winner on this site nobody praises it. The galaxies are constantly killing most camera phones out there. Funny so many sony fun boys want to see the z2 take that place. Lol

Did not expect that the HTC was so crappy! Even the crappy iphone beats the HTC.

Shame on any party comparing the cameras on cell phones that doesn't include the Lumia 1020. Unless you start with the caveat that the comparison of the rest of the phones' cameras are for 2nd place, you're doing a disservice to those that don't know any better.

The 1020 is still by far the best Camera Phone for still photos to date. No need to have it compared to other phones. The 1520 and Icon on the other hand should be included in these flagships phones camera comparisons.
