In an age when mobile photography is more popular than it ever has been before, the quality of photos taken on leading mobile devices like the iPhone 5s and Galaxy S5 continues to impress. At the same time, however, there is still a huge disparity between photos taken by smartphones and images captured by dedicated compact cameras.
Or is there?
Because mobile photography has become so popular, a new category of smartphones has emerged. Made up of just a handful of high-end handsets like the Nokia Lumia 1020 and the Samsung Galaxy S4 zoom, this new breed of camera phones tries to come as close as possible to providing the quality and experience we might expect from a dedicated camera.
