UTP's best phone-shot photos in 2013

Published by at

Yes, yes, a link to a page with nothing but photos. But a) it's Friday, and b) the photos are all mobile-only and rather impressive. All are taken by the Unleash The Phones crew, and naturally includes a fair smattering of Nokia 808 and Lumia 1020-shot images. Worth a browse, and note that all photos are hyperlinked to their full resolution versions on the likes of Flickr.

From the article:

Exactly one year ago, we posted the best pictures we’d taken with a mobile phone so far. It was a glorious gallery of how mobile phone photography has evolved, all the way from the Nokia N73, Nokia N95 and the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, to the Nokia 808 PureView. But that was until January 2013.

2013 was a huge year for mobile photography. Atleast in my opinion. We saw fantastic camera efforts by many mobile manufacturers, leading to the 20 Megapixel camera on the Sony Xperia Z1, the 41 Megapixel PureView OIS Camera on the Nokia Lumia 1020, and even HTC’s “UltraPixel” experiment with the HTC One.

As such I figured it’d be really fun to post the best pictures we took with a mobile phone in 2013, just to see what we managed with the phones we reviewed and used during the year. 

Here are some of my favourites from the gallery. This one's taken on the Nokia 808 and (as you may be able to tell) cropped from a 38MP monolith of an image. Yet it still manages this sort of detail at 2MP:

And this was taken on the Lumia 1020:

Finally, another 1020 shot - it could have come from an 808 too, but nothing short of a PureView camera would get things this pure under such tricky lighting, I'd warrant:
