i wouldn't be surprised if N8 came out on top ass it has beaten canon ixus130and gave EOS 550D a tough challenge!

so the general verdict seems to be C,> A,> B
if you look at some of the corners and edges of C, there seems to be blurryness/smudging as compared to A... so i believe A and C are both good in thier own ways. Overall, C seems to reflect true colour rather than digitized colour more than A.
B is hands DOWN the worst. Probably the samsung. Although, the picutres are still very adequate for a cell phone.
A = Samsung worst
B = Nokia middle
C = Sony best (not fair - a dedicated camera!!)
B - Sony digicam
A - N8
C - Pixon12
B seems to have the best color rendering but there's just too much noticeable noise which happens to be consistent with digicams.
A & C are a tad too dim which is almost quite present on most camphones plus ofcourse the saturations and noise levels

C is the Nokia; A is the Sony.
I'm not sure you can say one is better than the other as they take completely different approaches to noise reduction - the Sony has less noise at the cost of detail, in line with most consumer compacts, and the Nokia has more detail and also a lot more noise.
It's impressive though. At least until you want to zoom in...

I think the poorest pics belong to the pixon, judging from the saturation and lack of detail. Its a toss up between the point and shoot and the N8, I think the point and shoot should be better, since it is an expensive one, but who knows.
