first era of mobile camera ?? thats a bit over exaggerating..
afaik, note3 camera's well above average...maybe better than nexus5 too.. :O
If camera is that important why not go for Lumia series and if you want android note 3 has got every thing. And with the price tag of 43 k I can say that you should give it a shot and there are bunch of camera apps available that might make the camera better.
Nope, OIS does not have anything to do with final image quality. It helps you get steadier shots without much effort which increases your chances of getting a blur free clear image.
The actual quality depends on the sensor, lens, processing algorithm and ISP.
Also the OIS used in Nexus 5 is only a 2 axis OIS which is inferior to the applications on Lumia phones and LG G2.
So do not judge photo quality based on whether a device has OIS or not.
Nexus 5 camera is worse than Note 3 in EVERY area.
GSMArena has this to say:
"The Nexus 5 camera certainly isn't going to win any photography contests - thanks to its poor white balance it can't even win its own 8MP league, let alone take the big guys with 13MP cameras (the Xperia Z1 and Lumia 1020 can't even be put in the same sentence with it). "
Among the 13MP camera flagship batch, Galaxy S4 has the best camera followed by Note 3. G2 has OIS but overall quality isn't as good as S4 or Note 3.
You have to Import one man. So there is practically in India not possiblity of getting one on EMI. You have to pay full payment in advance unless you are getting one form your acquaintance.
What do you think about the N9005 and N9000. The battery consumption in N9005 is better and also the GPU is better than the N9000!! Right???
3GB RAM is great on paper but Note 3 usually has the same useable RAM left as most 2GB RAM devices due to the Samsung bloatware. So 3GB RAM at least on Note 3 is more of a "paper spec" with not much benefit in real world usage.
