ShootoutLegsThe guys at Phones 4u have published a humorous camera shootout between the upcoming Sony Xperia S and three major competitors including the Apple iPhone 4S, Samsung Galaxy S II and Nokia Lumia 800. This is not a comparison in the traditional sense i.e. you won’t find camera samples to pore over in detail. However, they compared the practical side of having a camera smartphone in your pocket, namely they tested how quick it takes to shoot a picture from a standing start.

To be fair, we’ve already seen how fast the Xperia S is at capturing a photo from standby and we didn’t think the other phones had a chance. Two of the phones don’t have a dedicated shutter button (Galaxy S II and iPhone 4S) which means they came last. The Xperia S was the clear winner in this test, capturing a photo in 1.8 seconds, just over the 1.5 seconds that Sony quotes.

The Lumia 800 came second pitching both phones into a final duel to see which could produce the best picture from a standing start. The Xperia S came on top here too, with the judges being swayed by the sharp picture and the phone’s Reality Display when viewing the picture on the phone. See the video of the test below.
