Camera comparison: iPhone 5 vs Nexus 4 vs 8X vs DROID DNA vs Lumia 920 vs Note II vs Galaxy S III

Color reproduction:

It's always difficult to compare colors, as this is a category where almost every handset has its own opinion of how things should look. Thankfully, we have our reference by our side, so we managed to rank the device pretty quickly. The first place here is shared by three phones – the Galaxy Note II, Galaxy S III and iPhone 5. The thing about the iPhone 5 is that it often goes for a slightly more saturated and vibrant picture, which is eye-catching but not exactly natural. The S III and Note II tend to remain more down-to-Earth in this respect, but they may also lack some saturation in certain shots. In the end, we believe these three contestants deserve to share the first spot.

The Nexus 4 is not far behind. However, LG's handset performs admirably in some scenes, but fails miserably in others. Due to these inconsistent results, we think it shouldn't share the place of the leaders. Interestingly, when taking pics outside, the Lumia 920 presents us with some extremely warm and saturated shots, which are even difficult to consider "eye-catching." The HTCs, on the other hand, have a slightly greenish appearance, which prevents them from being taken too seriously in this category.
