Check out this comparison gallery of photos taken with the Apple iPhone 5 and the Nokia Lumia 1020.

The iPhone 5 features an 8-megapixel camera; whereas, the new Lumia 1020 features a 41-megapixel camera with six physical lenses.

iSource took the comparison photos seen here. The iPhone 5 is on the left and the Lumia 1020 is on the right. You can find a full description of the settings and more photos at the link below.

Of course, the Lumia 1020 performed better when it came to zoom and low light situations; however, its colors seem a bit over-saturated.

What do you think?

I think, who cares if it is a little "over saturated" ? In many instances, it makes the photo look better. Come on people...if you really think the iPhone is even in the same league, you're kidding yourselves. P.S. ... It really isn't fair that the hallway photos taken with the iPhone are perfectly straight, and the Nokia photos are slightly tilted, making folks believe, at first glance, something is off about the Nokia photos.

Wow, if you think that Nokia is just in it for the camera you have to do your homework. Nokia breaks out of the box BIGTIME when it comes to phone development. They made an EXPLOSIVELY powerful camera look sexy on a phone. I bought the 1020 for work after switching off of IPHONE and Galaxy in tandem and came up with the following reasons on how nokia is years ahead of the game: First, just look at the phone. Notice anything different? CORNERS. when is the last time you saw corners on a smart phone? The answer is never. Tie that into a sturdy slate casing and a pocket size smaller than the S4 without zoom, and boom, sexy. Next, the sure power of the phone. If you buy a 1020, you are basically getting a handheld windows tablet that can take better photos than your stand alone camera. With social media integration and photo editing on the spot, this phone is a professional in marketing, advertising, PR's dream. Not only that but the OS is snappy and your hotspot lasts for six hours. Finally, the OS itself. They made windows 8 work above industry standards, with a more powerful processor than is fathomable for phone technology. Speed baby, hot, nasty, badass speed. Sometimes brand loyalty just won't let people see the light. If you are between contracts and want to join a REAL innovative crowd, get on board with this phone.

1) Since any camera along with any photostitching app can render as a big a file as with any other camera........a big panorama file in an iphone is meaningless really. 2) I wouldn't brag so much about multitasking in an Iphone 5 with it's 1GB ram (which the Nokia 1020 has twice that with 2GB) . Then there is the Galaxy s4 with 2x everything the Iphone5 has.

Retina HD? Retina makes the photo better? I get the distinct feeling you don't know what a retina display is... Am I mistaken?

I don't think some of you realize.... There is a big difference in MP count over 13. I own both a Canon EOS 50D (15 mp) and a Nikon D3100 (14 Mp). The difference in quality in the two is astounding, despite being only a single Mp different. The Canon beats the Nikon in every aspect, except for video which it doesn't do. As for the "good luck uploading a 41 mp photo to Facebook".... That's not how it works. When you take a picture on the 1020, it takes TWO PHOTOS. A 5mp photo for sending/uploading, etc... And a 36mp photo for editing and detail. So no, you will not be sending a 41mp photo and will NOT be crashing the OS. iPhone 5 vs Lumia 1020... I have an Iphone 4, and I'm bored with it. My wife still loves hers but I am done with the iPhone. I can't do anything with it anymore. I used to remember to grab it before leaving the house because I used it all the time. Now, I don't carry with me half the time I'm out. I would rather use a friends phone than my own. I have two coworkers who have an android and a W8 phone. I like both of them more than my phone. I'm considering the W8 more, though, because it responds better than the Android. So, lay them all down and play with each one. And learn all the facts before you start bitching about things that you don't understand.

Nikon is just a camera, and is this really what you choose instead of iphone, giving up something that doesn't freeze or has retina display for a nokia or nikon? I'm positive about nokias os it sucks! No one would waste their money on this shit because they only try to beat iphone with megapixels, even the low-light feature, the more megapixels the better the photo yet too many like this would crash the system and take sooo llooonngg sending time! Did you know iphone paranorma uses 28 megapixels? That's not bad, the regular camera is 8 mp but it will be the 5S that'll have 12mp camera and thanks to ios 7 along with upgraded led flash and low-light feature, we can finally use features like these and it burns samsucks phone tapping feature pointed out in 'Samsung gets burned by ios 7' video! Once you go past 13mp which is enough for good quality photo is would stay the same but iphone does make theirs hd. Trust me you'll go back to iphone soon enough!
