I could sit here and justify why we love camera comparisons, and how useful/reliable they are for our everyday life; but one of the simple facts is that Nokia usually make great cameras; so we like to play to our strengths. Here’s a comparison the folks over at recombu carried out pitting the 808 (the undisputed king) against the iPhone 5, the oneX, the SGS3 and the Xperia T; none of these phones are slouches when it comes to cameras in any way (except perhaps the Xperia T- first I ever hear of it). By their standards the 808 came out on top 4 out of 5 times, losing only once in normal landscape mode to the iPhone 5 and coming in second.
The very best of the bunch is unsurprisingly the Nokia 808 PureView. A Xenon flash is worth its weight in gold when you’re trying to take a low-light photo and you just need to glance over the results to see how incredible detail is on the subjects. OnceAdvertisements

Side note- I know that in terms of sheer photography the 808 is a winner, but for people who don’t understand the concept of a good picture the iPhone (mostly the 4 & 4s) always seemed to produce more appealing images since they
Over-exposed Over-saturated some of the colors The iPhone 5 seems to have cut down on the over Saturation and upped the quality, while keeping the pictures looking crisp and attractive; so kudos to them, however it seems to struggle in direct sunlight producing a horrible purple flare, but then again we’re probably holding it wrong.
