HTC Titan II test shot

In the indoor still-life scene lit with studio lights, the best white-balance setting for the Nokia Lumia 900 was florescent. This shot was taken at ISO 100.

With the Nokia Lumia's white balance set to auto, the phone's camera produced images of an indoor still-life shot with an unnatural blueish tint. Details at ISO 100, however, are crisp.

At ISO 400, you can begin to see noise and graininess in the Nokia Lumia 900's test shots of indoor still life.

Pushing the Nokia Lumia 900's sensor to its highest ISO setting, ISO 800, color noise and image artifacts become more pronounced in the still-life scene.

Though the Nokia Lumia 900's camera does have a macro mode, the phone didn't do as well as the HTC Titan II in extremely tight closeups. For example, the chip in the lower-right corner of the image isn't quite sharp enough.

Outside, the Nokia Lumia 900 fared better than it did with the indoor still-life shots. Even so, the frosty colors and bluish tint were an issue outdoors, too. Colors of flowers in this image snapped in warm sunlight have hues that look too cold to my eyes.

The Nokia Lumia 900's lack of HDR became apparent in shots like this of the iconic New York Flatiron building. Details such as windows and textures in stone are very dark, especially when compared with the HTC Titan II's images of the same location.

Despite its lower 8-megapixel sensor, the Nokia Lumia 900 was able to snap this pleasing landscape shot of the Empire State Building on a sunny day.

The HTC Titan II's auto white balance was much better at detecting the correct selection and consistently produced images with warm colors in the still-life scene test.

With the HTC Titan II's ISO settings manually set to ISO 100 for the still-life test shot, the result was very similar to the phone's automatic ISO selection. This indoor image has lifelike color and crisp details.

Even with the HTC Titan II's image sensor set to ISO 800, which simulates shooting under low light, details remain very clear, and there's not much color noise.

The HTC Titan II sports an image sensor capable of going up to ISO 1600, and images shot at this setting surprisingly have less color noise and artifacts than those taken with the Nokia Lumia 900 at a slower ISO 800.

Macro shots are better from the HTC Titan II as well. The phone captured circuity chips on this graphics board with finer detail than the Nokia Lumia 900.

Colors look natural outside, with the HTC Titan II snapping these flowers in vivid hues. The same flower bed photographed by the Nokia Lumia 900 had a sickly blue cast.

Though the sky was a little blown out, the HTC Titan II snapped an impressively detailed image of the Flatiron building. Here it's light enough to make out more of the bricks and even air-conditioning units along the building's walls.

The HTC Titan II's wide landscape shot is just as impressive as the Nokia Lumia 900's shot of the same location.
