Google has long been telling us its Nexus smartphones will take great pictures, but even with the many camera improvements it brought to the Nexus 5, we’re yet to see it deliver on that promise. Will the Nexus 6 be different? The gallery below features some of the first photos taken with Google’s latest smartphone.

In an effort to make the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus as thin and as light as possible, Apple made some sacrifices. Battery life — particularly on the smaller iPhone 6 — isn’t as good as it could have been, and the rear-facing iSight camera on both devices sticks right out. Could the Cupertino company have done a better job?

Lenovo seems to think so. Leaked pictures of its upcoming Sisley handset show a device that looks almost identical to the iPhone 6 — without the protruding camera and with slightly less unsightly antenna bands.

Motorola smartphone users can now use their Android Wear watch as a remote shutter control. The feature, which is already available inside of Google’s universal Camera app, is available with the latest version of the app that’s available to download now from Google Play.

You may want to think twice about unlocking your Xperia Z3 Compact’s bootloader if camera quality is important to you. Sony has warned developers that hacking their devices could degrade camera performance in low light, making images look noticeably worse than they did before.

Apple’s new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus carry the best smartphone cameras you can buy right now, according to the camera and lens experts at DxOMark. Both devices achieve an impressive rating of 82 out of 100, beating the Samsung Galaxy S5, the Sony Xperia Z3, and even the 41-megapixel sensor in the Nokia 808 PureView.
