One of the most desirable Lumias, the Lumia 540 packs a 8 MP rear camera with 1/4 inch sensor and F/2.2 aperture. The same unit does its duty on Lumia 640 too. While the camera on Lumia 540 doesn’t pack Zeiss optics or OIS like on some “PureView” or non-pureview Lumia cameras, it is expected to provide a good imaging performance being a Lumia.

So, we subject it to our detailed Daylight and Low-light testing and also benchmark it against Lumia 1020, the gold standard in smartphone imaging. Though stay tuned, as we will bring a detailed comparison between Lumia 540 and Lumia 640 XL cameras later on.

In all the comparison sets, Lumia 540 crop is on the top followed by Lumia 1020 image crop. Lumia 1020 images were downsized to 8 MP for the sake of comparison.
