    For this phone to be shooting pics that good, you can't beat the price! Shooting like a 700 dollar phone camera. Looks great. 1020 great? Not even close but shoots with the best of the rest.

    That was a great video. Basically what it told me is that with the availability of post-processing options I would never let the camera make my decision between these two phones.

    I don't see google skimping on the camera when everything else is a power house

    Hey all. I've taken some comparison shots between the N5 and a Nokia Lumia 925. I've gone for some low light shots here to show how the N5 holds up against one of the top low light performers on the market. Both sets of phots were taken using the stock camera app, all settings at auto with the flash turned off. The time of day was dusk. The chair shot had no artificial light source, the t-shirt was in a room with a desk lamp turned on and the garden was illuminated by a security light. I'm no camera expert, and these shots have been resized, so aren't a true reflection of either phones' output; but hopefully they give a reasonable, real-world reference for comparison in low light settings. N5 on the left, L925 on the right.(Or 1st and 2nd respectively, depending on the screen you are reading this on)

    Performance under good lighting, to my untrained eye, appears to be comparable, with the L925 being a little better at picking out detail in shaded areas. I'd say the biggest difference comes from the stock apps; The Nokia Camera app is quite frankly in an entirely different league to stock Android 4.4. The features, coupled with granular control over the hardware, are excellent, as is the UI. The Android equivalent; not so much. Still, the overall package is a nice kick-on from the N4 and I reckon it'll serve for most people.

    Edit:

    I've taken a few close ups of my boys snoozing after our walk this morning, to show what the N5 cam can do in a macro sense. They were taken from around 5/6cm from the subject, indoors, this time using the HDR+ mode. Again, they have been resized, so aren't genuinely accurate, just an indication.

    I wouldn't mind seeing comparison shots from an n4 and n5. I'm really hoping the new camera is just better than this one!

    As you mentioned the app, or rather the post-processing aspect, makes a large difference.

    I would imagine that the purchasable apps in Google Play will make much better use of the OIS and camera lens than Google's stock app.

    Here are some lowlight shots I just took with the N5. Applied the vintage filter to the first two, the third is completely without modification.

    I'm insanely pleased with that camera. AF could be faster, but shot-to-shot speed is faster than on my 1020 even with the HDR+ mode on.

    Can someone test the front facing camera please as mine is quite dark when taking video, but nice and bright when taking still images?
    Is this just mine or is there a significant difference when switching between the two? Front facing camera only.

    G2 was slightly better.

    Nexus 5 camera is 10x better than Nexus 4.

    This seems like a solid review: Nexus 5 review | The Verge. Sadly, a reportedly disappointing camera and battery.

    Although, in this comparison: http://recombu.com/mobile/news/googl...on_M19696.html. I actually think the Nexus 5 is tied for 2nd place (with the iPhone 5S, and behind the Lumia 1020).

    Yet another: http://www.androidcentral.com/nexus-...-video-samples. The Note 3 looks better than the Nexus 5, imo.

    And in the Nexus 5 vs. Galaxy S4 video posted above, they both break even, imo.

    Some Tahitian Treat snapped with my N5. Coming from Galaxy Nexus so it's a huge upgrade for me

    First impression: very meh.

    Shutter is slow in hdr+ and picture will never be fast enough for indoors on a moving target. Low light really blows.

    And I was using a moto X so this is marginally worse, IMO.

    Agreed that the shutter is very slow and struggles to focus. If you are taking an image of a still subject then you have a chance, otherwise you get some blurry shots. HDR+ shots come out sharper for me as stated by many others. Hope they fix it soon.

    Yeah don't move for about two seconds. It will never work if you're trying to take a great shot in a quick moment.
