12MP camera phone shootout: Xperia S vs Nokia N8

Xperia-SThe Sony Xperia S has already gone had to head-to-head with the some of the best smartphones on the market, but Dial-a-Phone has now pegged it against what many regard to be the best camera smartphone on the market – the Nokia N8. The Nokia N8 has a 12MP camera sensor, so it seems a fairer fight than previous showdowns given the Xperia S’ 12MP Exmor R sensor (not that mega pixels are everything.)

The Dial-a-Phone team crowned the Xperia S the winner due to its “excellent colour saturation and impressive low-light capability”. They also said that the image output is of a consistently high quality. The Nokia N8 was docked points for its macro setting and slow standby-to-picture time, although it does have that xenon flash which is unsurpassed for indoor shots. The comparison was somewhat disappointing in that they didn’t provide links to the raw images, we can only go by the downscaled images embedded in the post. However, they also posted a video that you can check out below.
