The Large Smartphone of the Year Shoot Together

After putting on the table the different individual analysis of the best smartphones of the 2013 (or at least those who will compete in the first half of the year), gather them all to undergo a test, required for those users that are set in the first place in your smartphone camera.

Nokia Lumia 920, Samsung Galaxy S4, BlackBerry Z10, Sony Xperia Z, LG Optimus G, iPhone 5 and HTC One they face in a photographic challenge under the same conditions to put its photographic section to review. It happens and watch carefully at vintagesfinder.com.

Comparative table of photographic features

Before you start to shoot, a brief comparison of key features of these terminals, to have it as a reference point.

Resolution Opening OIS Long. focal
iPhone 5 8 MP f.2.4 No 33 mm
Samsung Galaxy S4 13 MP f2.2 No 31 mm
Sony Xperia Z 13 MP f2.4 No 28 mm
LG Optimus G 13 MP f2.4 No 28 mm
BlackBerry Z10 8 MP f2.2 No 31 mm
HTC One 4 MP f2.0 28 mm
Nokia Lumia 920 8.7 MP f2.0 26 mm

Far everything seems fine

The level reached by the cameras of the best smartphones on the market makes that, from afar, at the level of the “digital window”, the result is pretty good in general. There are nuances related to the reproduction of color or white balance, and of course can be seen at this level “work” of each brand with noise reduction and treatment in general images.

But the differences begin to look at details

But if we make a cut to 100% of the lower left corner of the image, the differences are exposed to the eye of the consumer. At this level we can see that the work of Samsung with the sensor of the S4 Galaxy is awesome, far away leaving the Xperia Z who should compete directly, the Lumia 920 and of course the HTC One, whose four ultrapixeles remain devastated by the S4 Galaxy 13 million. Both iPhone 5 as the Z10 Blackberry keep type but do not reach to the Samsung model.

Now a scene in the foreground with different outcomes at the level of detail, sharpness and balance of whites. We can see that new Galaxy S4 captures sharp details while that on the opposite side, Optimus G presents an image very flat.

Another one from outside on a cloudy day. First the general:

And now the cut-out at 100% in the area of the Palm tree, which leaves us details that the iPhone 5 and the S4 Galaxy get a good balance with the detail and noise reduction while the opposite side, Lumia 920 is the more aggressive with this reduction, producing a loss of detail at the edges.

A backlight also comes into the comparison, with HDR mode activated on all cameras that had he (all but the Lumia and BlackBerry Z10):

And now one of inside where the white balance quite varies between the different cameras. All had activated the automatic mode. The most faithful to the reality of this room have been HTC One and Lumia 920, while the Z10 has deflected much.

In the dark come into play the One HTC and Lumia 920

Suddenly becomes night, tests table stays virtually in the dark and the technologies that come into play both HTC and Nokia have placed their best smartphones to perform better than their rivals in low light, Although this has meant as we are seeing, that not are placed as the best terminals when there is enough light.

The One HTC uses its pixels able to collect more light, to its aperture f2.0 and OIS stabilizer, while the Lumia Strip opening f2.0 and more complete than the HTC OIS system for details of where others only can capture dead pixels.

Both models take advantage of its stabilizer to maintain a low ISO and greater exposure time, which manage to control noise and not have to work the image too. Conversely, other cameras should take the image in faster way, what translates into a rise of ISO, except for the Xperia Z, which in night mode opted in all cases to maintain an ISO under control and was penalized with a very dark scenes.

Cut 100% all images in the same extent as with light, these are the results. There are plenty of words to see the ‘cleaning’ of HTC One and Lumia 920 concerning noise of their rivals in this scene, but sale HTC One winner to maintain more detail (in both cases the system placed at 800 ISO and shutter speed 1/3). The iPhone 5 was that took the greatest risk go ISO up to 3200, shooting at 1/15 seconds to avoid trepidation in the scene.

And now a general image with cut-out at 100% and is not completely in the dark. Here the advantage of HTC and Nokia is no longer so obvious and such the Samsung Galaxy S4 is back to show an excellent level:

Will soon be available for downloading the original images of all terminals

The opinion of Engadget

With these sample images and the tests we have done with these smartphones, is clear improvement experienced by the cameras of these teams, but also that there is a product still perfect in all facets.

I also think that the work carried out by the own companies with the images that are obtained from the sensor in different sections determines the final quality of the image, even over the sensor. Very similar to physical level base models offer very different results. And what about bets riskier HTC and Nokia have little more than highlight in very dark scenes, which surely cannot be the most common for many users.

In contrast has been placed Samsung, who does not fear the megapixel race and It has cast its S4 Galaxy as a terminal rather than outstanding no noteworthy features or pretentious names but good work in all photographic sections and the addition of extra functions that are becoming fashionable. Just like the iPhone 5, which is one of the most balanced models also without attracting attention.

All the terminals of the test have been granted by their respective brands in Spain. You can consult our policy of relations with companies
