    very very bad comparison?

    you actually dont need to put in ur password in the nokia 1020. waht u do
    is go on settings swipe to app settings, go on photos+camera and uncheck
    prevent accidental camera launch when phone is locked and make sure
    pressing the camera button opens: camera(built in app)
    so this test is unfair?

    Megapixels are nice, but let’s get real. If it takes forever to load the
    camera app, you’ll miss some magical moments. I put six top smartphones to
    the test to see which is the fastest at getting to the camera to take a
    photo from sleep mode (and yes, each have a password). Read up on more
    details about the test on my blog post:

    Which phone has the fastest camera? Obviously, the Samsung is the slowest,
    which (even after all this time) requires you to enter the password after
    using the lockscreen camera shortcut.

    Also, the Lumia test was messed up because you can simply hold down the
    shutter button to launch the camera from sleep.

    The brief video only lasts around 4 minutes, but gives an insightful look
    at some of the fastest camera phones on the market in 2013. Putting six
    smartphones to the test, this video hits on the demand for high megapixels
    but also discusses which phone is quicker as far as taking instant pictures
    are concerned.?

    I can’t believe you have to enter your pin before taking a photo on all
    these phones. ?

    U can remove ur password in the s4 in order to launch the camera faster.

    Bridget is hot

  10. Ahmed Mubarak March 29, 2014 at 4:04 am

    shees a fool u change setting in lumia .instead of pro cam we can change to
    default camera app ..from lock it doest need password…

    what is this stupid bitch talking about? who would have known they would
    pick iphone as the best? cnet is bias and reviews are not to be trusted

  12. Jonathan Ortega March 29, 2014 at 5:18 am

    Doesn’t know crap. I mean how could you not remove the password lock before
    “testing”?! Dumbest phone comparison ever.

  13. Andrew Chang March 29, 2014 at 5:57 am

    Yeah, if only she knew that.

  14. zlati georgiev March 29, 2014 at 6:27 am

    Try the nexus 4 – same time as the moto x and iPhone 🙂 or any stock
    android phone for that matter

  15. James Swiderski March 29, 2014 at 6:32 am

    Funny cuz my Xperia Z is faster then both those shit phones… Sony is KiNG!

  16. microsf121 March 29, 2014 at 7:29 am

    With or without a password, it still works.

  17. manhal217 March 29, 2014 at 8:00 am

    What about the xperia z

  18. inhows March 29, 2014 at 8:44 am

    Bridget does not do her research thoroughly enough, nokia lumia does not
    need to be unlocked to use the camera, there is an option to wake and take
    a photo using only the camera button (for security you can not look at your
    previous taken photos unless you unlock the phone) I was able to take a
    photo using a friends phone (same model) in around 4 seconds. CNet = apple
    biased, again

  21. Ion Popa March 29, 2014 at 10:37 am

    Apple forever

    Cnet should delete this video If they need there audience to believe in
    their recommendations… I always check there top 5 before buying anything
    but seems like they are paid from some companies to praise them..

    What utter toss, all the Lumia’s have a camera button, and take a pic with
    out entering the password, mine goes from sleep to picture taken in around
    3 seconds. Your test is flawed as are most of your reviews. #applefanboys

  24. Grzegorz Wid?a March 29, 2014 at 12:06 pm

    You can’t even view previously taken photos then. It just allows you to
    record video or take a photo – nothing more.

  25. Albin Larsson March 29, 2014 at 12:54 pm

    Just hold the camera button on the Lumia and the camera will launch…
