The cameras on phones just keep getting better and better and the great thing is that most of the higher end models compare well with each other too. Check through this gallery and see what photos you like best. I took photos from the Apple iPhone 4S, Nokia N8, Nokia Lumia 900, Nokia N9, and HTC One X for this comparison gallery.

Make sure to check out my ZDNet Smartphones & Cell Phones article that includes some details about the cameras in each phone and a table summarizing my findings.
