Unless you only ever plan on using your phone in the glorious summer sun, you'll need a camera that can cope with fading light. I found a shadowy corner of the CNET UK office to see how the cameras cope with the lower light and how their flashes help illuminate the scene. Without the flash, the S4 gave the most pleasing overall image. Both the Lumia 920 and Xperia Z's efforts came out a bit too yellow for my liking. With the flash however, the S3 gave the clearest image, although the flash was bordering on a little overpowering. The Xperia Z and 920 both suffered quite a bit from image noise.
Turn the flash on and things all change, The Lumia 920 still produced a well-balanced image overall, but the S4's shot was considerably sharper, particularly when you look full screen, Look closely around the red Saxa logo and you'll see that the Xperia Z's shot was rather poor, High dynamic range (HDR) images combine multiple shots taken at frida y chavela iphone case different exposures in order to create an even exposure overall, It's particularly handy when shooting scenes with both dark and bright areas, The Nokia Lumia 920 doesn't have an HDR function as standard so it was left out of this test..
My favourite image from this test came from the Galaxy S3 -- it did a good job of toning down the bright sky, while keeping contrast and clarity on the building. The S4's looked similar, but I didn't like the zoomed-in view as much. The HTC One's made a rather bizarre attempt at rescuing the highlights, resulting in the odd dark splodge. The Xperia Z's auto-white balance gave overly warm results. Although it couldn't match the Lumia 920's efforts in low light, the S4 generally did an excellent job in the tests. Its images were very crisp and had a good overall colour balance. It's a shame that it has such a narrow field of view, as it means you can't shoot a particularly wide scene -- landscape and architecture photographers might not be too impressed.
A Motorola device known as X Phone is rumoured to debut Android Key Lime Pie -- could this be it? There's nothing to confirm that that's what we're looking at, though there's a chance this is a prototype, running earlier software than the final version, The X Phone is also said to have a 4.7-inch screen, and the one pictured here seems smaller than that, at least to my eye, There are no firm specs to go on, so we'll frida y chavela iphone case have to wait and see, Motodesigner Jim Wicks said recently that instead of the current trend of "bigger is better", Motorola thinks "better is better", He said the company is working on handsets that are "just right", as well as offering pure Android instead of all the bloatware that comes preloaded on a lot of devices, So far, the Nexus 4 has been one of the few mobiles to offer pure Android..
A tweaked Nexus 4 is expected to launch at Google I/O on 15 May, with the Nexus 5 not touching down until the winter. What would you like to see from Motorola's future phones? And how big a blower is just right? Let me know in the comments, or on our Facebook page. A new Motorola mobile has leaked -- could it be the much-rumoured X Phone?. We've heard before that Motorola is working on handsets that are "just right" for consumers, which means smaller screens and pure Android. Well here's a glimpse of its first phone to put that into practice, courtesy of Internet tipsters @evleaks.
