Sony has the best camera if used in the manual mode as samsung and iphone buy camera sensor from sony so cant overtake sony.

Lumia 930 and 1520 with Denim update should be third best camera after Pureview 808 and Lumia 1020.

Hi GSM arena :) can you make a latest version of this now that ASUS offers a great camera. Please make a new one ASUS zenfone 2 vs. LG G3 vs. Sony z3 vs. Samsung Galaxy note 4 vs. IPhone 6 plus vs. Nokia 1030

Galaxy s5

Late comment, however next time please try to fully zoom videos when comparing maximum details.

I believe that if you zoom 4 times with lumia in 1080p video, the zoomed will bring more details than e. g. samsung at 4K without zoom. Lumia 1020 has no 4k support however you can record the same (and more) details just by zooming in and out.
Phones with worse lens will not be able to zoom lose-less like 1020 does.

Journalism done right, thanks.

I own an "old" S4 & S5 (3 months now) while my gf owns LG G2... IMHO I would rate automatic daylight pictures S4>S5>G2, while for videos S5>G2>S4... Image stabilisation on S5 takes too long, I don't reccomend it.

  • AnonD-223898

All this was done in automatic modes! I have Sony Xperia Z2 in manual mode I get amazing shots if I set it perfectly! In vedio the review described it correctly it is very excited for focusing!
