Phones4u put smartphone cameras through their paces

Smartphone cameras are getting better and better, sure they're not going to replace your DSLR any time soon, but some are surprisingly able -- the problem is knowing which ones.

Luckily the guys from Phones4u have recently put a range of camera-totting phones through their paces, including the Sony Xperia S, iPhone 4S, Galaxy S2 and Nokia Lumia 800.

In a video which has been uploaded to YouTube the cameras are put to test in a series of challenges the first of which was to see how long the phones took to take a photo.

And while we won't spoil it for you, the image quality of the top two performers is then compared before a winner is declared.
