Smartphone camera shootout: iPhone 6s compared to the best of Android and Lumia

Smartphone camera shootout: iPhone 6s compared to the best of Android and Lumia

I remarked in my recent full review of the Apple iPhone 6s a few days ago, that image quality from its rear camera is ‘excellent but not quite class leading’. Of course, the word ‘class’ is somewhat ambiguous here – did I mean to include camera specialist phones like the 1/1.5″-sensored Lumia 1020? Did I merely refer to 2015 camera-toting smartphones? And what about platform? Below, I look at each of these, including comparisons to imaging on the original iPhone 6 – suffice it to say that the camera in the iPhone 6s manages to be ‘up there’ while knocking spots off much of the competition in terms of performance and usability.
