The pics were uploaded to facebook, so yeah, no EXIF data. The camera is a Samsung Galaxy S3. The place is Lake Englebright up near Marysville, Ca. I say up, because I'm in Southern California :)

"Apple wins again so I have to bash the article."

-PhoneArena.com Readers

I don't care either way, but the whining has got to stop in the comments section. Is there ever an adult conversation around the articles here anymore?

The iPhone's resolution being lower than HD means that video players need to perform some downscaling when playing HD movies.
The GS3 screen settings offers a choice of 4 options (dynamic, standard, natural and video) that efficiently tame the "oversaturated" effect.One of the most interesting features in new Galaxy S III is the ability to create your own custom vibration notification.Check this tutorialhttp://www.careace.net/2012/10/02/how-to-create-your-own-custom-vibration-notifications-on-your-samsung-galaxy-s-iii/

I hope that the iPhone 5 being the winner is some sort of joke. I saw all of the photos for all of the devices, and one of the shots, like the second or something, by the iPhone 5, was absolutely horrendous. In comparison, all the other devices, including the Lumia, had shots that were incredible, or in the case of the Lumia, bearable. In fact, in the photo where the iPhone did an absolute horrendous job, everything did better than it. Including the Lumia. With the Galaxy S III undeniably coming out on top of the photo that I'm talking about. The iPhone 5 failed miserably once, and not all of the photos were well rounded, and yet you give the win to the iPhone 5 obviously just because it is an Apple product? You guys are huge disgusting jokes. Good thing you are trying to properly inform readers who come to these sites in order to educate themselves for their next purchase.
