While taking pictures, Sony Xperia Z2 performs well as it has the perfect colour combination in its daytime images. The photos turn out to be brighter, shady areas are clearer but due to this the objects might turn out to be dark.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 has neutral colors in its pictures with a slight cold-ish tone. The dark color is visible here too but not as such that it will create a negative impression.

The LG G2 has a lot to show as compared to its competitors. It has a good balance of colour and does not over saturate. Some of the images display certain greenish tone.

The Apple iPhone 5s has its own colour representation. Its pictures are warm and bright and both these forms show negative and positive side depending on the way it is seen.
