The xperia z pics wont look half bad either if they were taken/downsized to 4 megapixels. I remember everyone was going mental here at some photo samples that were posted by a user - downsized to 3 megapixels - saying it took better pics than the nokia pureviews. He posted the actual 13mp raw files and it was back to the usual.
What makes HTC's camera is the OIS - plus I love HTC's approach towards shattering the megapixel myth. I hope more manufacturers do what they've done.
