As smartphones become ubiquitous, they're quickly replacing traditional point-and-shoot cameras as the go-to device for taking quick photos. The quality of smartphone cameras is quite good, and smartphones make it easy to share those images with others wherever you are.
But not all smartphone cameras are created equal. The Nokia Lumia 1020, for example, has a 41-megapixel sensor; the iPhone 5s has image stabilization and a dual-LED flash; and the Samsung Galaxy S4 has a multitude of features you won't find on even the most advanced stand-alone cameras. Here are the best smartphone cameras for 2013. (All prices are with 2-year carrier contract.)
