    I'd argue that Nokia makes the better mobile cameras for smartphones right now.

    Agreed! Nokia has a lot of experience in mobile device cameras dating back to 2005. HTC's cameras have always been bad and I don't expect anything different from the HTC One.

    HTC wins in some other categories, most likely: build quality, battery management, weight/dimensions, and operating system.

    What bugs me about the 920 in low light is that bright areas (light through windows) are always unnaturally bright. What Nokia needs in their next low light camera iteration is always-on and hardware implemented HDR support. That would be amazing.

    Operating system? Wait, why are you here?

    On-chip HDR would be pretty cool as long as you could control the effect. Nothing worse than an ghost-tastic HDR-ey looking photo.

    Ok, actually there's a lot worse than that (*cough* Instagram filters *cough*), but it's still obnoxious :)

    lol... agree... the more photography settings we can control the better. On a side note, new methods are emerging for digital HDR photography, that don't require the merging of multiple stills (No merging = No ghosting). The Tegra4 is likely going to be the first SoC to use this (marketing buzzword is chimera). I don't know how good their implementation is, but if it is good, it will revolutionize HDR imaging.

    Sounds good to me - can't go wrong with more dynamic range if there are no consequences. Looking forward to it :)

    The top two photos go in favor of the HTC one while the last definitely goes for the 920. However, everyone and their mom has owned an HTC now and knows what software "support" means for that company.

    I agree the HTC ones look sharper.

    Hey, there is one vdeo comparing the HTC One and the Lumia 920, and again, Lumia 920 is the better one.

    Forget the 920, even the 720 seems to beat the One's camera
