Camera comparison: Sony Xperia Z vs Samsung Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note II, iPhone 5, Nokia Lumia 920

Night shots

To no surprise, none of the smartphones we're comparing can take pretty photos at night. Yeah, they are usable, but nothing worthy of being printed and put in a frame, especially with all that digital noise present in all of them.

Still, some of the photos look slightly better than the rest. The Samsung Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note II, and iPhone 5 managed to produce the best night photos, with colors and overall tone closest to the real world. The Sony Xperia Z's night photos would have looked nice as well if they were a little better exposed. The Nokia Lumia 920, which is usually a decent low-light performer, simply couldn't get the colors right at night, although we must agree that its photos have lots of details in certain areas.
