The moving water was with the front camera not the back which we knew would be much much better (but for some reason gets little press). A lot of people say not worth getting then go on to say they'll stick with their 4S.... This is much much better than my 4.

Im sad to say that I compared the iPhone 5 yesterday to the Samsung s3 and the iPhone's pictures looked EXACTLY like my current 4s!! The s3's were WAY more detailed... I'm super upset that Apple had a whole year and all they could do is give us the same cheap camera than the 4s. I'm sticking with my 4s for now.

Although the differences don't see very obvious initially, there's an increased color saturation, plus better image stabilization (less camera shaking), and slightly better low light capabilies.

Whats people dont realize is that MP doesn't really make much of a difference in picture quality, the way the cameras function is utilized make the difference. The A5 chip was meant for performace, not camera quality, A5X was made for iPad 3 to enhance graphics on a larger format, A6 is meant for the same reason, however, its for both performance and graphics (includes camera). most newer android phones have great cameras as well, but their processors are not meant for graphics, so instead they enable auto contrast adding which does make great photos, but can also make horrible photos with too much added contrast

Same hardware, different image processing capabilities. It does not matter what phone has the best camera. The best camera happens to be the one you have with you at the candid moment. I know some with Nokia Pureview disagree on this.
