Check out this camera shoot-out performed by CNET between the iPhone 4S, Nokia 808 PureView and HTC One X.
All photos were shot at 8 megapixels and on default settings, unless otherwise mentioned. For the Nokia 808 PureView, it was set to capture photos at "PureView resolution" and at its highest quality. The Nokia handset's advantage is its "pixel overlay" technology, where seven pixels on its sensor are combined together to form one "super pixel".
Aloysius: The One X has the most natural shot here. The colors don't seem to be overly saturated or underexposed. However, when you look at the 100 percent crop pictures, the 808's detail and clarity are unmatched. The One X suffers from too much noise, while the iPhone 4S delivers quite an impressive shot.
Jacqueline: At 100 percent crop, the edges of the sculptures are still very clean and sharp for the 808. You can even see individual blades of grass, whereas the HTC and Apple images are grainier. Compared with the other two handsets, the 808's colors are slightly muted.
Shawn: At 100 percent crop, the 808 has an edge in terms of sharpness thanks to its larger sensor, while the iPhone produced images with a warmer tone. The best frame was from the One X which produced images with pleasing color rendition with an even exposure across the frame.
