Nokia PureView 808

While Nokia's PureView 808 may not boast as robust an app offering as iOS- or Android-based devices (it runs the Finnish handset maker’s old-school Symbian OS), it's the clear-cut winner when it comes to smartphone cameras, sporting an industry-leading 41-megapixel camera.

Announced in February, the PureView 808 includes a camera that’s leaps and bounds beyond all other smartphone cameras on the market, including those in the iPhone 4S and Samsung Galaxy S III which both have 8-megapixel counts. Nokia also armed the device with its new PureView Pro imaging technology, a feature that enables pixel oversampling, or the process of combining many pixels to create a single -- and in Nokia’s words "super" -- pixel to more clearly capture detail.

The 4-inch Nokia PureView 808 also contains a 1.3 GHz ARM processor and up 16 GB of storage.
