The Galaxy S4 doesn't have the advanced optical image stabilization of some smartphones like the Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC One, but it does have some form of digital image stabilization...

The video stabilization in this video it's on par with what I have experienced with my gs4. The digital stabilization is ok, but it crops the image in order to achieve that while still not being as stable as my Lumia 920. I don't think hardware stabilization should be put against software stabilization, but if you're comparing flagship phones then it's not Nokia's our htc's fault that Samsung or Apple don't use real stabilization technology so you have no choice. Other than anything to do with camera, I like my gs4 better than my Lumia 920.

There is no doubt that Nokia builts awesome camera tech. However, is that the ( no pun intended) is that the focus of a smart device? Nokia has the advantage with the camera tech. But the Os that runs its flagship devices is lacking right now. So you have a choice, which is the best thing we can have, if you want a device that is okay at communication but excellent as a photography then Nokia is it- If you want a device that excel at communication but okay as photography device then the Samsung Galaxy 4 is it.

Nokia does offer another advantage that you failed ot mention: better audio recording abilities. That feature does not seem to have been widely discussed yet, but three HAAC microphones present inside the new Lumia 928 make it a compelling solution for audio/video purposes, as well as snapping still photos. The S4 is a great device with a large screen, plenty of external ports, and an expandable SD memory slot, but it's not the master of every technology...

S4's video recording is better than lumia 920

There is a very good comparison of S4 vs others on the home page of phonearena

S4's total score (including all lighting scenes) passes iphone 5, htc one, lumia 920 and the xz

So if you can come up with an objective evidence ok but otherwise DON'T GO ON POSTING LIKE AN ..... 'S4 IS CRAP'

Before i owned htc one, XZ, iphone 5, note 2 an between them S4 is the real winner IMO and the best cellphone in the planet right now

As a last wor, I think some people here have real bad issues which needs urgent treatment
