Little shocked by the outcome to be honest. The iPhone pictures are much darker than the GS3 in any condition I choose to photograph. Sometimes its a decent alternative, but indoors, it makes things a little... off. I cropped the first pictures but didnt run any filters etc on them. First picture is iPhone 5, second GS3. Both were resized to 1024x768 before cropping also (not that it matters). Both pictures are pretty nice, but when side by side, the GS3 appears to have way more clarity and far closer to what the room actually looks like. I also tried iPhones HDR setting, but yielded the same results other than more details on the window. I also took the picture to show the GS3 doesn't show the purple color flare that is plaguing the iPhone 5. Sure they say take the picture differently... however, given how many lights are in this room, its relatively impossible to do so. The GS3 does not show anything in regards to a purple flare. The flare on the iPhone picture isnt very noticeable, however, I can make it pretty bad if need be lol. Next I did a closeup of a tennis ball. Iphone 5 First again. While the iPhone 5 picture looks vivid and nice, its not accurate. The tennis ball isn't nearly that green to my eyes, and the GS3 actually represents the color far more accurately. I think the iPhone 5 is saturating the photos a bit, while the GS3 might be slightly overexposing it. I can adjust those settings on the GS3, but not on the iPhone unless I use Camera+ which is amazing. I guess its a preference issue at this point? While the iPhone 5 picture is darker in the first set, I would imagine a savvy Photoshop user could adjust the exposure. The next picture will be the same ball, but with Camera+ auto-adjusting the image quality on the iPhone. It looks like a great picture, very vivid, very sharp. However, like I said before - its not nearly the color of the ball. The ball is actually pretty old, and more of a faded green. In summary - I guess it depends on your taste in pictures. For me, I think they are both pretty decent and I guess it would depend what type of picture I am going for. SIDE NOTE: The GS3 is running the AOSP camera in Cyanogen 10, not the stock Samsung app. I am not sure how much of an improvement or how much worse that would make the picture.
