Iphone 5S takes great pictures but I would not say it beats the S5 in picture taking. Look at all the camera comparisons here and on most sites and the S5 comes out on top of the 5S. Its 8 MP vs 16 MP now the Nokia 1020 is in a league of its self in my opinion. I currently have a Htc m7 and the ultra Camera falls falt. was hoping the M8 moved to at least a 8 or 10 ultra camera which could have been on par with the 5S but Peter Cho and company let me down ( instead putting a 5 MP camera on the front and the same ultra camera form the m7 as the primary). Any how I see it as Apple playing catch up as usual.

I just want even better low light capability and slightly larger pixel count for zooming in. My 5s already takes incredible pics in almost all conditions but improvements are always welcome.

I mean are apple lovers plain stupid or what? When was the lady time iPhone came close to 2 on a camera comparison on any tech site? Most flagships cameras have better pictures than the iPhone. Everyone knows that. Only the Icows refuse to see that.

Hate all you want, but the iPhone continues to have one of the best overall cameras out there. Coupled with great software and editing tools and it's outstanding.

no apple fan here but iphone 5s has probably the best 8mp camera and they show great dedication on delivering good performing cameras. if they can compete with 13 - 20 mp sensors, with bigger size and aperture i think a 10-13mp fitted on an iphone 6, using one of sony's best mobile sensors with a f/1.8 aperture and electrical stabilization (these are the rumors so far) it will be seriously good. of course no best cameraphone gives you sooo little things to tweak (apple only lets you toggle flash and hdr on/off and that's it) but that's another story.
