And it does not make sense to compare shots in full resolution so we would see how the sensors perform that way just like the rest. The same way the One's photos are compared to 13mp and 20mp samples without changing either.
I'm so glad you are not turning this into a pointless debate like you love to do.

Obviously it seems to win either way. That's not the point. Try reading the full conversation or at least more than one comment before replying to a reply

Xperia Z1 gives you the best overall image quality of all leading smartphones
Fight of mobile cameras
Sony Xperia Z1 and Apple iPhone 5, HTC One, Nokia Lumia 1020, Nokia Lumia 925 and Samsung Galaxy S4

Because that's what the others have to do and that's where you see how the sensor actually performs.
HTC one , 1020 and IP5s the best in low light. If HTC one has 8 MP Ultra going to beat all these phones in low light.
Why didnt this review also include the samsung galaxy zoom phone and the sony Ericsson z1? I love my lumia 1020 but also love using my samsung galaxy camera as the 20x zoom is amazing. Would have loved to see if the samsung galaxy zoom would par up? At the same time the sony z1 when equiped withthe wireless cam is amazing. Can you imagine the miscief, snooping on cheating gfs etc. Also its the only phone to stream real time to facebook. Gsm arena should have included these two titans.

And upscalling the others creates degrading in them. They left the other shots in their native resolution and size. That's 4mp, 13, and 20mp. The 1020 to make this review completely neutral all the way through should compare it's 38mp outcomes.
