HTC 8X than with this device.
Thankfully the latest system update Android 4.4.2, aimed at improving the Nexus 5's camera, was released yesterday. Being the brave person I was, I downloaded and installed the update during my train ride home last night. The update was installed without a hitch, and ten minutes later the phone was rebooted with the new software installed. Bam!

Overall Android 4.4.2 is a successful and much needed system update that addresses most of the issues with the camera. And while it won't turn it into a Lumia 1020, it has made it usable. Good job Google for listening to your customers, for once.
