Android camera face-off compares Galaxy Nexus to Galaxy S II and others

Being in the Christmas spirit and all, we thought we’d share a nice Android phone camera comparison that looks at quality between a few newish devices. Despite a three of the five devices not specifically being available in Canada, the UK-based mobile site Recombu compares the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy S II and Galaxy Note to Sony Ericsson’s Xperia arc s and HTC’s Sensation XL. The good thing about the latter two is that they use the same hardware as their predecessors: the arc s has the same camera optics as the original arc, and the Sensation XL has the same great sensor and lens as the Amaze and Raider.

The comparisons are taken outside at night, indoors with and without a flash as well as a macro comparison and, not to spoil anything, the Sensation XL comes out on top overall. This bodes well for users of the Amaze and Raider, who share the same great camera hardware and software.

Check out the full look over at Recombu. We’ll be doing a similar camera comparison in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for that.
