    They both have great cameras, but I think the pictures taken with the Lumia seem to have more vibrant colors.

    Possibly, but did you notice how much better the Xperia was in low light? My jaw dropped when I saw that! I've never seen a camera on a phone that's better in low light than a 1020.

    Yes it would; however, I'll probably do another camera comparison with the Z3 Compact and the 1020 because when I compared the Z3 to the Z3 Compact, it was a bit different. Go to the web site and go to Reviews -> Camera Comparisons -> Sony -> Xperia Z3 Compact and you'll see that there are subtle differences.

    .... the camera everything is about the sensor of the camera and then the construction of the lens ..... and finally the software !!!! and obviously the owner of the phone with good condition of light,..... forget about the mpx!!! eight is more than enough ....look the iphone !! 8 mpx..... one of the best cameras why?? construction on the lens and perfect software !! peace bro !!( photographer here)

    Nokia did great. In fact, they've always had the best camera. That's why I was so shocked that Sony did so well.

    Keep in mind that there's no difference between 20.7 and 41 MP. A 4K display is 8.3 MP and even Apple's new 5K iMac is 11 and change, so unless you crop the images, it's not going to make a difference at all because the resolution of the photo is higher than the resolution of the screen that it's being displayed on.

    Another thing to consider is the amount of power it takes to use those pixels. It's the same reason I think the OPO will outperform the Nexus 6, because the Nexus 6 has twice as many pixels on the screen as the OPO with only 200 extra MHz. Since the 1020 uses a dual core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro to push 41 MP, it is very retarded, while the Sony uses a 2.5 GHz quad core Snapdragon 801 to push 20.7 megapixels, so it's super fast.

    Maybe you should have read the review before you made that rant? You'd probably look less foolish...Just saying :)

    That explains a lot. Personally, I really love the camera of my OPO. I'm coming from an iPhone 4s, and it's a GREAT improvement. The only thing I don't like, is the front camera. It gives me a weird look, a sort of make-up layer on all faces (especially group selfies :)). I'd rather get my iPhone 4s' camera on my OPO, because it looked better.

    But still, the OnePlus is like 900% better then my iPhone 4s :p

    Interesting. I love the front camera on the OPO. And you can tell megapixels don't matter by comparing the 8 MP camera on he 4S to the one on the iPhone 6, y'know?

    MP is not the same. Lumia 1020 is 41 and Z3 is 20.7
