    I took this shot at night in a poorly lit room using hdr+. I don't know what more you could ask from a cell phone camera. If you can't take a good shot with this camera, it's because you're a bad photographer. I don't mean that as an insult...I'm a bad singer and a bad dancer. This is a great camera.Share your Nexus 5 camera photos, videos, and thoughts!-img_20131107_200817.jpg

    That's odd... I would have expected the reverse in results.

    Me too. Maybe I am mis-interpreting the settings? But it is like this on most pictures I took.

    The 2nd picture does look better to me though. Even though the first one is brighter, the 2nd one is richer and sharper.

    On this one the difference is a lot more clear. HDR mode is warmer and sharper.

    As you can see from the middle one, the HDR mode does bring out more detail in macro shots as well. It aint just for low light.

    So this is a pic my wife snapped of me tonight. No flash, low light and HDR on. I couldn't be happier with the picture. I was actually very impressed. It captured the mood perfectly.

    Just placed an order earlier today for a N5. The slow shutter posts kinda of worry me. I have a very active 2 year old that is constantly moving. I don't expect over the top from my cell phone pics, I break out the Canon DSLR for that, but I do like a solid pic. I love the pics my S3 takes, HDR matched with Perfectly clear and a few other apps and I'm extremely happy. Looking/Hoping for similar performance.

    Here are some of my S3 pics.

    I make comparison between my old Digicam Sony DSC-W130, Nexus 5, and Nexus 5 HDR+ Mode

    First thing to note: HDR+ is definitely much better than auto mode, always use it when possible!

    Overall, I'm satisfied with the Nexus 5 camera, but it didn't beat the Sony. Nexus 5 outperformed the Sony with near scenes (lamp, kitchen), while the Sony did better with far away scenes (grass, socket). The sony captured more detail, but the Nexus produces better photos when they contain gradients such as shadows or shiny surfaces. The sensor of the Nexus camera is inferior, but I guess it makes up by better prost processing. For complex scenery, the Sony is better, for simple indoor scenery, the Nexus is better.

    I didn't test low-light conditions, but that's actually one of the Nexus' strengths and I'm pretty sure it will outperform my old camera there.

    First photo: Sony DSC-W130, second photo: Nexus 5 auto mode, third photo: Nexus 5 HDR+ Mode

    The shutter speeds are not bad on the Nexus 5, as long as you are in normal mode. It's only really slow in HDR+. But the S3 definitely has a faster shutter speed.
