Six top camera phones of today
It's difficult to judge the camera capture capability of most high-end phones today because with the right lighting and setup you can capture great photos with nearly all of them. I took the latest and greatest phones out for a spin this weekend and tried to see if any device stood out from the rest.
I took photos using the Samsung Galaxy S5, Apple iPhone 5s, HTC One (M8), LG G2, Nokia Lumia Icon, and Nokia Lumia 1020.
In the particular shot I took of the side of the yard, showing lots of shapes and colors, I thought the Nokia Lumia Icon stood out as the best. Check out the following gallery for the photos and judge for yourself.
You can view the full-size images I used to gather these Six Clicks photos in this Flickr album. There are two other photos taken with each phone too. This album does not include the full resolution Nokia Lumia photos, but just the default ones most people use for typical sharing purposes in order to offer the fairest comparison with the other camera phones. With the full 38 and 20 megapixel images, the Lumias stand out from the pack.
The camera software on these phones, other than the iPhone 5s, is full of features that let you take amazing shots with some settings changes. I enjoyed the software on each of these phones, especially seeing it evolve and get better with continued development from the manufacturers.
Nokia Lumia Icon
The Nokia Lumia Icon is only available on Verizon, but there are options from AT&T and T-Mobile for devices with a similiar camera.
Apple iPhone 5s
The iPhone has the simplest software, but honestly it takes great photos and is still a device I recommend for many folks.
