Before we compare the Galaxy S4‘s camera capabilities, here’s the final leg of the camera shootout between the HTC One, BlackBerry Z10, Nokia Lumia 920, iPhone 5 and Sony Xperia Z. We have dropped the Xperia ZL from the comparison as it produces identical results as the Xperia Z.

To recap, the iPhone 5 and BlackBerry Z10 shoots a maximum of 8MP while the Sony Xperia Z/Zl shoots at 13MP. The Nokia Lumia 920’s shooter is rated at 8.7MP but captures images at 7.9MP as its maximum size in 4:3 aspect ratio. For HTC, its Ultrapixel camera which boasts bigger pixels shoots at a smaller 4MP resolution.

This time around, we’ve compared the HDR capabilities of the devices in the Suria KLCC and KLCC Twin Tower shots. Strangely for the Xperia Z, the HDR mode doesn’t seem to have any effect at all.

Head after the break for the comparison.
