The Samsung Galaxy Camera essentially pairs one of Samsung’s regular compact digital snappers with one of its Android phones, making features like in-camera photo editing and instant social sharing available over 3G. At nearly £400 though, it’s not cheap — especially as it doesn’t also function as a phone — so let’s take a look at how it stacks up against the behemoths of the smart phone world. I pitted the Galaxy Camera against Samsung’s own Galaxy S3, the delightful and super-cheap Nexus 4, Apple’s iPhone 5 and the Nokia Lumia 920. Best for outdoor Galaxy Camera Perhaps unsurprisingly, the bigger lens and sensor on the Galaxy Camera resulted in the sharpest overall picture while providing natural colour tones. There was little difference in quality between the Galaxy S3 and iPhone 5, but the S3 just managed to capture the natural, cold January morning tones more accurately. The Lumia 920 meanwhile seemed to bring a soft-focus touch to the scene, while the Nexus 4’s shot was both too dark and too blue. With a 21x optical zoom on board, it’s again unsurprising that the Galaxy Camera came out top in this test. All the other contenders had to make do…
