Here's what happens when you give a Nexus 5 to a photographer
posted by Chris P. / Jan 17, 2014, 7:53 AM
Anyway, Italian blog AndroidWorld has done just that with a Nexus 5. They've given the budget-friendly flagship to a professional photographer for a month, and the results are quite impressive, indeed. Some of the snaps below, taken by photographer Alexander Michelazzi, have been edited, using VSCO Cam or the built-in Android editor. According to the reviewers, the Nexus 5 is the best cameraphone in its class.
You can also check out the video at the bottom, which was wholly shot and edited using a Nexus 5.
NOTE: The images haves been resized, as they are gigantic otherwise. You can download their respective full versions from the source, with EXIF data and all (you need to register). Direct all your awesome credit to Alexander Michelazzi, Pixel Square, and AndroidWorld.

Nyah ! They probably wanted to give them a 'smartphone' rather than a 'camera-phone' !

It has hardly any major apps a day games, so what good is that. Samsung phones camera is on par with iP5s, but below the 1020,... Lumia1020 only has a great camera and nothing else. The screen and specs are outdated for a 2013 device....

Lumia 1020 does just about everything you could ask for, without any lag what-so-ever. Also, there are plenty of apps available now for WP8 users (around 250,000), and so that is not a valid reason to avoid the platform. If it lacks customization, WP8 OS also lacks the huge amount of malware and viri that hampers Android. Unless you play mobile games that require advance processing capabilities, or if you require some kind of obscure techie app to your control your mother board, there is no reason to shun WP8 devices, especially the vaunted Lumia Brand. The 1020 also has great audio & video record and playback capabilities, and is both light and durable. Are there better smartphones out there? Probably, but if you are into photography and need a smartphone device that takes great photos, then the Lumia 1020 is most likely your best option.

All u do is praise the camera in the comment. Is there anything else to that phone apart form the camera. Nokia knows that too.. as a result all the ads feature the camera and nothing. U might have heard a concept "multi tasking", haven't you? Trying doing that for once and let me know. Oh.. and try playing a mkv file too, which is the norm these days. And secondly it costs almost as much as note 3. Is that justified? Now justify your comment, quoting "Lumia 1020 does just about everything you could ask for, without any lag what-so-ever"

It's a smartphone but it compromises a lot to put the camera in unlike almost every other flagship. That camera bump is horrible and most people would take an iPhone or android camera over it if it meant not having to deal with that hideous camera hump and wp8. And if you must have a hideous camera bump, add zoom or flaunt your camera heritage. The 1020 is effectively an garbage smart phone that uses a comb over to try and cover it's camera roots.

"...best camera phone in its class." That's laughable. It's a decent camera, but not anywhere close to that. The Z1, G2, 5S, and 1020 all smoke the N5 camera.

You are so wrong. I've seen samples from all those smart phones and they do not blow the Nexus 5 camera away. The only camera that can kind of sort of do that is the 1020. The Nexus 5's camera is extremely capable and it easily beats the GS3 and one UP's the Gs4 by a hair. I have those phones and I've tested them all. The Nexus 5 comes very close if not slightly surpassing the 5s, Z1, G2 and even in some scenarios the 1020.
