It's more than a month ago I went on a short trip where I made several shots using four smartphones cameras and one "connected camera". Life has been pretty hectic this month, so I completely forgot about this short comparison, and I was very happy to find all these shots yesterday evening.
You'll see bright and sunny shots from the BlackBerry Z10, Nokia 808 PureView, Nokia Lumia 920, Samsung Galaxy Camera and Sony Xperia Z (I didn't have the Samsug S4 yet, nor the HTC One - still working on a comparison involving those two). I wasn't smart enough to choose for the 4:3 format to get the very best quality of all cameras, but it will give you a good impression of the differences.
I'll present the three different scenes in three different ways: first you'll see a video made from all originals on YouTube. Next (after the break) you'll see all resized versions below. Finally, you'll find all unaltered shots in a dedicated set on Flickr. I'll leave the conclusions up to you. I'm working on several other comparisons, please be patient, it will be worth it, I promiss.
Please watch the video fullscreen and in full resolution (I didn't add any music to avoid discussions with Google about copyrights etc).
