Default One S vs iPhone 4S camera comparison

So out of curiosity I took some pictures with my One S and an iPhone 4S to try and see if there is a significant difference in camera quality. Unfortunately I didnt quite manage to take identical pictures, but it gives you some idea at least.

Personally I think its a rather close call, so Im happy with my One S for sure.

I posted the results here.

What do you think?

The one S definatly beats the iPhone 4s. The 4s really desaturated a lot of colors. Their are comparisons on youtube.

I think I may have to agree with you. I find the colors more vivid on the photos taken by the iPhone 4S. It is indeed a close call though.

The iPhone 4S outdoor photo looks much sharper in the corners and upper edge (better lens?). Here is another comparison (One X / $s)
http://www.gottabemobile.com/2012/03...eras-compared/

Could you rename the files to clearly show which one is from which phone?
Could you re-check the focus - the HTC one looks front-focussed?

The 4S camera is better from those pictures - but others should note that the focal lengths are not the same - this makes comparisons very difficult.

FWIW I own 4 DSLRs and 10 lenses (mostly primes) - so Ive seen way too many camera test shots

Meh even if the iphone camera beats the one X it still doesn't make IOS/Apple better then ANDROID / Google.

You cant compare the camera quality from the iPhone 4s with the one s because of screen resolution and size. The iPhones has a small screen with high resolution and higher pixels per inch with a 3.5 inch screen. So taking a pic with the iPhone and looking at the pic from the iPhones screen, quality is going to look much better but doesn't mean it is.

Take a pic with the iphone, send it to your one s and look at the pic you took with the iPhone through the one s screen. The pic won't even load full size, they will load super tiny. And if you try to blow them up, they will get distorted. Even when my cousin and my friend that own an iPhone 4 send me pics, I always receive them really small, every single time.

There's no way the Iphones camera quality should be even close to the one s camera quality. One s should be 10x better.
