During this test we snapped photos of a Furby sitting on a desk in our office. Each camera’s flash was turned off.
1. Google Nexus 4: The Nexus 4’s photo has sharper detail than any of the others, and the color and brightness are the most accurate. The ruffles in the Furby’s fur are more defined in this image than any of the others.
2. Samsung Galaxy S4: The color in the Galaxy S4’s photo is rich and accurate, and there’s no noticeable haze. The brightness is perfect, but it’s not the sharpest image of the bunch.
3. HTC One: The HTC One’s image is fairly sharp and doesn’t show much noise at large sizes. The color is also generally true to the subjects, though it’s not perfect.
4. LG Optimus G Pro: The LG Optimus G Pro’s image is a little oversaturated, but there’s no visible haze and its contrast is better than the others. The colors are also generally accurate in this shot.
5. Apple iPhone 5: The Furby in this image isn’t completely in focus and is a tad blurry, but its color is more accurate than many other phones. The Furby’s fur and the background color reflect what the scene actually looked like.
6. Sony Xperia ZL: This one is also a bit hazy, but it’s not as noticeable as the BlackBerry Z10’s issue. At least the Furby looks true to its orange color here.
7. BlackBerry Z10: The Z10’s photo is much grainier than the others, and the colors are dull. You’ll also notice a slight haze in the center of the image that shouldn’t be there.
8. Nokia Lumia 920: The Furby looks pink in this image rather than its actual orange color, which is the most noticeable flaw. The image is probably one of the sharpest of the bunch, but the color interpretation is so skewed that it misrepresents the subject significantly.
9. Motorola Droid RAZR HD: Overall, this image is significantly darker than it should be. The color of the Furby is fairly accurate, but the background color is not; it shifts from light to dark.
