Say cheese (shoppe)!

Here, Sprint's photo (top) captured details with the yellow house in the background and the car on the right. AT&T's camera, on the other hand, washed out most of the sunlight in the background and overlaid a cold, blue tone across the cement.

Smuggin' for the camera

AT&T's camera (bottom) did not handle the light hitting the side of Jaymar's face well, and his jet-black sweater appeared more like dark gray.

Flowers in the sky

Zooming in at max resolution, you can see how AT&T's photo (bottom) had colors that popped. The magenta in the flowers is more saturated than the hues shown on Sprint's photo.

Grab a seat

Though Sprint's photo (top) had colors that were more true-to-life, we have to admit that we prefer the vividness of AT&T's yellow chair.

San Pedro Square Market

Though we prefer the deep-blue sky in AT&T's photo (bottom), Sprint captured more details in the shadow of the building at the right-hand side. And at maximum resolution, you can see how much more light Sprint's camera captures with the clock.

The little details

Zooming in on this computer board, you can see that Sprint's camera (top) was still able to take in some details with the white cloth on the left. The green and red hues were also more accurate than in AT&T's photo.

Every day I'm shufflin'

Though it's easier to make out the details of the sand in Sprint's photo (top), we like the red shade of the shuffleboard puck in AT&T's picture.

The orchid thief

Zooming in at max resolution with the yellow orchid, you can see how much more "pop" the yellow and magenta hues have with AT&T's camera (bottom).

Quesadilla and some chips

The white plate in AT&T's photo (bottom) is slightly washed out near the center, and you can see how more details were captured in Sprint's camera with the tortilla chips.

Serious Jaymar is serious, srsly

In this dimly lit picture, both cameras blacked out most of Jaymar's sweater, but the backlighting in AT&T's photo (bottom) was more washed out.

Strawberry fields forever

In the Sprint's photo (top), the redness in the strawberries is not as richly saturated as in the AT&T's.
