Camera comparison: HTC One vs Nokia Lumia 920 vs Apple iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S III vs Sony Xperia Z vs Google Nexus 499+
Colors on the HTC One came out realistic, actually in many cases approaching closely the ones we got on our reference camera. In some shots, they came out slightly yellowish, compared to the dedicated camera, but as a whole the One offers satisfying balance.
The Nokia Lumia 920 on the other hand oversaturated everything blowing it way out of proportion, colors look plain unreal. While this may be good for some shots, it is bad in others and is inaccurate in all.
The iPhone 5 and Galaxy S III go traditionally hand in hand with fairly accurate color representation, tending to slightly pump up tones.
The Sony Xperia Z is also oversaturated compared to the real world, but to a lesser extent when compared to the Lumia 920. Additionally a slight purplish tint to its images is ever present.
Nexus 4 has similar results to the HTC One, but its images are slightly more oversaturated.
