1 model is very yellowish..no good

The Lumia 1020 will have a sharper image and has a slightly yellowish tint to the photo.

Although the Note 3 has an inferior camera module, Samsung's image processing software is superior to that of Sony's, thus can sometimes produce better images despite the weaker camera module.

Sony's rather inferior image processing in smartphones causes it's images to be more grainy and washed out. I've seen samples of the Z1 vs 1020. But it's images will be sharper than the Note 3 when zoomed in due to the higher MP count.

My guesses:

Sample 1:
A – Lumia 1020
B – Z1
C – Note 3

Sample 2:
A – Lumia 1020
B – Z1
C – Note 3

Sample 3:
A – Note 3
B – Z1
C – Lumia 1020

Lumia 1020 very yellowish,
Sony Z1 just below expectation,
Note 3 the overall champion.

Nokia is finished, need to elop fast

@AlexBoss86

Very nice camera on Galaxy Note 3. Nice sharpness, & colors are more realistic on Note 3. Sony Xperia Z1 disappointed me, like always (blurring and noisily images), especially parrot shot. Lumia 1020 shows unrealistic colors.

Overall #1- Note3 is the best, Having perfect colours, True blackness and ultra noise cancellation.
#2-Lumia having Perfect Noise fading and good exposure is less blur due to High MP's.
#3-Experia z1 with ultra Night sensitive is perfect for Low light Photography.
