The phone wars used to be waged in numbers of processors or screen size, but lately it's all been about megapixels and designer lenses. With advanced image processing and multifarious editing options, smartphones like these three are spelling the end for the pocket camera.
Samsung Galaxy S4 ZoomThe good: Advanced controls and preset modes are easy to use. Top-notch image quality, optical zoom, and a tripod mount make it the most flexible smartphone camera there is. The bad: Heavy and asymmetrical, the camera-shaped Zoom is awkward and uncomfortable to use as a phone.
Nokia Lumia 1020The good: The Nokia Lumia 1020's camera captures extremely high-resolution images with fine detail, and puts creative controls at your fingertips. The bad: A niche device, the Lumia 1020 is $100 pricier than most high-end smartphones. The lens makes it a little bulky, and it lacks presets for common shooting scenarios.
