What is "Nokia Camera"?
It's the fast Smart Cam (with a lot of functionality)
and the manual control king Proc Camera combined.

If you are not wearing skinny jeans then generally it will fit. Not every pants. Even think larger phones have issues in skinny jeans.
And did I mention which had a better camera or was a better phone? No.
Are you a crazed fanboy? Probably
Anonymous, 14 Oct 2013Depends. Are you wearing skinny jeans? If not then generally yes. Have you ever saw S4zoom?
it wont fit in jeans its that huge.
And besides that even if S4zoom has better camera(which i doubt),than it will lose on every other "smarthphone" aspect against 1020!

But it does not negate how much advancement cameras have made in phones either
iEATapple, 14 Oct 2013Can Galaxy S4 Zoom fit into your pocket?Depends. Are you wearing skinny jeans? If not then generally yes.
No 1 can beat 1020 with 41MP Pureview Camera sensor...
Xperia Z1 have 21MP camera with additional Camera sensor lens...
Lumia 1020- Just .6 inch bump on back....
beCool, 14 Oct 2013I think Nokia 1020 should compare with Galaxy S4 Zoom. Not here. Can Galaxy S4 Zoom fit into your pocket?
Real Calculation (the lesser score is better)
1. Nokia 1020 Result : 1,1,4,6,1,1,1,2,1 / Scored = 17~
2. SG Note 3 Result : 4,3,1,1,6,3,1,1,6 /Scored = 26~
3. Iphone 5s Result : 6,5,2,1,3,2,6,2,4 /Scored =31~
4. Sony Z1 Result: 3,2,5,5,5,4,5,4,3 /Scored =36~
5. HTC One Result : 5,6,6,3,2,4,4,5,2 /Scored = 37~
6. LG G2 Result : 2,4,3,4,4,6,3,6,5 /Scored = 37~
[deleted post]Some of the criteria used in evaluation of these phones are "maybe" questionable,but at least gsmarena put an all around shoot out.
For example i can argue that "macro" comparison that you suggested is useless in real world usage....at least until the phone camera can focus on 5-6cm which is great for flower images,anything more is just plain useless.
Also "panorama" images for me shouldn't be of importance,as is really rarely used in RL.
Using of every phone features to take the best shoot is good idea though,but we must be real that review would be endless than.
beCool, 14 Oct 2013I think Nokia 1020 should compare with Galaxy S4 Zoom. Not here. Yes, if only S4 Zoom is Below 12mm thick & can slot in you front pocket easily, why not.!! ??
In good light n for every day use, I'm still happy with my 5 MP HTC Desire, which set to only 3 MP shootings... :)
caffeine666, 14 Oct 2013i think it's too early to judge xperia z1, sony has done a big work on camera with updates on ... moreDon't agree. You mean Sony didn't learn their lesson with the Xperia Z, Z Ultra, so they still screwed up on the new Z1? My god.. if that was true, no wonder most past Sony consumerso has choosen to stay away from Sony and think that's why they are going down.
Well, respects to the lumia 1020(for its camera).
I have no words for sammy. They are just amazing. Lg, is that what all you could do?
And for sony, a huge applause for the improvements over Z.
Now, i dont really understand whats wrong with sony. They have got the best things with them, but still they failed to utilise it. Why did u miss the ois, a powerful xenon flash? Still room for improvements.
Good to see sony taking a step ahead in camera, Waiting to see sony take over the throne in camera.
Thank you GSMarena, and for people making their comments given I know little about cameras. What annoys me with phone cameras is contrast. The phone cameras just cant seem to get the balance right and correct exposure. Sure these mobiles produce some good shots but which phone camera has the better contrast evaluation or spot for a portrait photo.
