    What did it do better than the Note 3?

    The pictures were clearer, cleaner, & the 5s took them faster

    I hate the camera on this phone. Luckily, it's the only thing I hate about this phone. I use my husband's iPhone 5 to take pictures when we're out.

    I've been trying to find out which one takes better pictures also because I was thinking about trading for iPhone 5s.

    This is a debate that will be pure opinion with no end in sight.

    Some swear by Note.. Some swear by the iPhone.

    OP asked for opinions from people who have used both, that should reduce the unqualified opinions.

    I'm in the camp of love the phone and only meh on the camera. I know it supposedly does 3 images, then processes those images and then picks the best image (which is why you get that silly message for a few secs about "processing"), but how about just producing the best pic the first time? iPhone 5 was truly point and click and always took great pics for me. Also noticed that if the camera moves even just a little, the image is completely blurred.

    It's also less intuitive for me to simply take a pic and then send it via email or text to a friend. Same for scrapbook. I always have to go through some convoluted process.

    If I changed to a 5s, never having used Apple, and my default computer is currently a recent fair spec Windows 7 (intel 4000 graphics) feeding a decent resolution 20" screen (soon to update) will I be more impressed with the 5s camera in general, as this is how I will mainly view my shots?

    Both will take excellent pictures when outdoors/sunny and so so picture when there is low light.

    Cameras on phones will always be a matter of opinion. If you want great pictures invest in a DSLR Camera. If you don't care about too much quality go with a camera on your phone. I love the photos either way because I'm not setting my expectations to STUNNING photography as what it seems like with these threads regarding picture quality... check here for some comparisons regarding both cameras..

    I agree. I was just curious how good the 5s is.
    If you are serious, get a serious camera.

    My last camera was 4mp. Phone cameras are good enough for scenic landscapes you visit, location potraits etc. They view well on a good pc screen.
    Night and zoom features won't be as good, and print blow ups, though they have the resolution, I dont know, will be lacking for the trained eye.

    'S all I know.

    Probably right on comment abt both phones are pretty intuitive but why can't such a sophisticated phone take decent low light pics?? Most of my pics are in low light.

    Are you trying to take with or without the flash?

    I think the iphone probably does a better job out of the box, but if one is willing to tinker, the note 3 can keep up with the iphone imho.

    Just not sure why they decided to over complicate the dang phone! People just want point, click, view great pic. Not point, hold super steady, ensure no low light condition, wait for "processing", the pray that pic is useable. If not, rinse, lather, repeat.

    Most of the time that is the case, but low light is VERY difficult for ANY camera, let alone a phone camera. If you don't want the processing message and quicker fire, just turn off smart stabilization.

    What pisses me off about the Note 3 camera is the 3 second processing time...right after the shutter sound.

    So you click to take the picture, the shutter makes the sound and then 3 seconds of processing later it takes the picture.

    When you take pictures of people and they hear the shutter sound, they assume the picture has been taken and they move leaving you with a blurry picture of people leaving their pose instead of a good picture...worst thing I hate about this phone.
