I think iPhone photos are sharper and better contrasted, however in low-light condition Nokia takes the lead.
I am actually disappointed with Lumia 920's camera, i expected sharper images in the day light.

This is the most competent Lumia 920 camera comparison I've seen so far. Jessica Dolcourt from cnet (actually anyone from cnet) is simply clueless in comparison. They simply lack the knowledge to review anything technical.

Seems like the Iphone 5 is most consistent, with the Lumia offering unnatural colors and blur but exceeding in the dark and the 8X offering great pictures but chocking most of the time..

To be honest, this is the way we should get the picture reviews. As normal people take it, no everyone has the time or knowledge to use the settings. They just want to focus, shoot and get a good picture.

Nevertheless, the review I linked to did include one test to simulate a clueless user. I think that is a fair compromise.

I just happen to have this little thing called "common sense" and some interest in how things I do come out.
That has helped me get better pictures with my phone.
If someone can not do that, they certainly have the lowest competency level of humanity.

People take crappy pictures, I had a friend with an Iphone 4 and she kept complaining about the crappy camera, I was taking photos with my Optimus 7 and she love how the pictures look. (Well she did had a GS2 before the iphone, is very hard not to take a great picture with that phone)

Seems like a good test to me. She isn't using the camera incorrectly. She holding it up and taking a shot, just like a normal user would.
On a different note, WTF if going on with that HTC 8X camera. Pretty crappy.
Nokia Lumia 920
But I was expecting the 920 to blow the iPhone out the water with Nokia touting OIS the way they are, but it didn't. Not really a big difference.

I was honestly thinking the 8x was going to have the better camera. I was really hoping for something extraordinary but eh it is what it is.
I keep telling myself the 8x is better (cause im on Verizon and I don't even have the choice) now you guys are making this harder on me! lol

The variety of picture quality in some of these reviews, specifically with the 920, is incredible. The Verge guys can't stop gushing about the camera. The even mention how good it is in the Nexus 4 review. Other reviews talk about washed out, no detail, etc. It makes me wonder if some reviewers have an early version of the image software.
Also, that's not an excuse. If it's true I think that's a huge fail on Nokia's part. You can upgrade software, but reviewers rarely upgrade their text. Similar to the Surface reviews. They all mention laggy performance in some areas. Maybe MS will fix it, but the reviews will exist forever.
