    He has his fingers in the lens, so we can't judge.

    But i'm totally sold to the night videos by the HTC One



    It lags because they chose to record at 24 fps for some reason, but we can clearly see who did it better.

    S4 camera looks great. I'm surprised how bad the iPhone 5 pics look in comparison. Progress is sweet.

    GS4 is the clear winner here in these tests. Colors are much more vibrant.

    Great night cam with the HTC One, but it seems like the GS4 has the better shots well atleast from these samples

    Looks like One tramples any competition for low light/night shots, but in well-lit situations, not so much.

    I'm not sure if you are being serious or not, but just in case you are I'd like to point out some things that you didn't catch. First, observe the metering and exposure adjustment on the S4. The response delay is much higher than both videos. I say both videos because I wasn't aware that the iPhone had OIS which can clearly be seen in both videos. Speaking of which, since you pointed out the mannequin, tell me what you notice immediately after he pans away and focuses on the sign next to the door entrance. As for the err ummm pictures, do tell why the iPhone takes clear pictures in all but the e-mail shot. It is blurred along with a completely different background color (which is not seen an any of the other shots). I wasn't aware that vibrant = accurate.

    How come the sample pics are taken at different zoom levels in each picture for each phone. That is not a very accurate way to rate or judge. I don't understand the purpose of them if the variables aren't minimized.

    All the pictures are taken at different angles and distances, whoever took these shots was definately favoring the S4, its too obvious, even more obvious is that smooth4 posted this, everyone knows he's s fan boy that loves to spam the boards with his non sense! When you find some shots that are even steven, let us know, I'm sure you won't because it most likely will show the htc phone has a better camera and we know you wouldn't want that! :banghead:

    Dang..! S4's pictures are very vivid ajd looks realistic. HTC One is no match for S4. Clearly S4 is packed with better camera than One.

    WOW!! Based on these results the S4 has the best camera out of any smartphone (including the 808). Look at those low-light outdoor photos!! No doubt. Before anyone thinks I'm being cynical I'm not. Based on the results, it is impossible for a 2µm pixel size and f2.0 aperture equipped camera to take in more light than an f2.2 equipped camera with a smaller pixel size. Any other comparison that stated the One has great low-light capabilities...lied. For the record, as I've stated before, the One will not win a single comparison test against the S4.

    Silly Me... I forgot one last thing. Keep in mind these pictures are from the same source and what appears to be the same time of day.

    Compare the low-light pictures of the HTC One against the Xperia Z


    Compare the low-light pictures of the HTC One against the S4


    I only have 1 simple question. Given that the pictures are from the same source, is there ANY difference between either set of pictures taken with the HTC One? hahaha!!!

    Lol Oh please tell me who exactly "everyone" is. Sounds more like you're the fanboy if you have to resort to bashing other members to try and make your point.

    This is from me, on my EVO 3D.

    On topic (since this is a thread about video and camera):

    The video tests show a clear advantage, in focus, for the S4. That thing's focus is rock solid. The HTC has a smoother video due to OIS. Quality is equal. Night video, looking at a collection of revies around the net, I prefer the One.

    Camera comparisons: The S4 has a much better day-light camera. Better colors, fantastic detail, and an overall very balanced day photo. Pre-release software, or not, the GS4 will produce better day shots than the One. I disagree with GSM's Lowlight shots, however. I don't like the setting they choose to deem as "low-light." I would prefer a pure blown night shot comparison and a bar/club shot comparison, rather than what looks to be an early evening shot.

    Off topic:

    Performance: GS4 faster in synthetics. Real world performance indistinguishable.

    Aesthetic design: HTC One, hands down. Although, the black GS4 doesn't look too bad, imo. I still feel like HTC placed more emphasis here, and it paid off.

    Functional Design: GS4, narrowly. Removable Battery and SD Slot is slightly > front facing speakers

    Display: 441 vs 468 is irrelevant. HTC One will have better color accuracy. GS4 will have better blacks. I personally love amoled screens, over-saturated or not. Both are very impressive.

    Software: Touchwiz for functionality and feature set. Sense 5 for minimalistic looks. Overall, I would prefer Sense 5, but both would be flashed to a better ROM.

    Battery Life: Going off GSMArena's comparison, the HTC will have (ever so slightly) better battery life for the power user that charges their phone once every 24hr. GS4 will have better battery life for the user that wants to stretch it out.

    Overall, I feel like neither party would be wrong if one had the GS4 and the other had an HTC One. The petty little fanboy wars are pathetically funny to me. They're both awesome devices, and I can't see anyone not being pleased with either. For me, though? I'm not making my decision until I can get some decent hands-on time with both.

    Yeah vibrant doesn't equal realistic, but who wants a realistic colored night shot? When someone takes a pic in the dark, or even in the shade they want to be able to actually see the picture, and the camera lens is supposed to open up (or digitally) to expose more light so people can see a camera shot in low light, so it brightens it up and adds some color to balance and satisfy the user.

    Not some dark picture when taking a pic in low light...then whats the point? lol

    Lol but seriously though all jokes aside, I think the Galaxy S4 camera is much better though
    The HTC Once camera is decent, but I think the S4 takes the cake

    Phone wars are funny
