Camera comparison: Samsung Galaxy S4 vs HTC One, Sony Xperia Z, iPhone 5, Nokia Lumia 920 and Galaxy S III
In the night shots category, we picked the Samsung Galaxy S4 and Sony Xperia Z as our favorites for a couple of reasons. First and foremost, their photos have that same warm glow that's typical for professionally taken night images – that's what makes them more appealing than the rest. Also, there's quite a lot of detail present in the frame. The iPhone 5 performs well, but its photos aren't as rich in details and have quite a lot of digital noise. Night photos taken with the rest of the gang are okay, with a decent amount of detail and all, but lack that pleasant color tone we were expecting to see in that kind of shot.
