The Lumia 950 XL is currently on display at Microsoft Stores all over USA, which has allowed many Windows Phone fans to have a hands-on with the devices.
One such fan is redditor Guyman101 who posted some sample pictures comparing the picture quality with the Lumia 1520, which of course also has a 20 megapixel camera and Optical Image Stabilization.
We have heard that despite sharing the same camera resolution the Lumia 950 XL’s camera is a completely new and upgraded unit compared to the 1520, with a 6 element lens and 6th generation Optical Image Stabilization, and the Lumia 950 XL features an F1.9 vs F2.4 lens on the Lumia 1520.
I think in the end however the pictures speak for themselves, and the quality is indeed a big upgrade over the older device, even before the camera had the usual software tweaks before and after launch.
See the samples below:

Guyman101 notes that conditions were not that great, with low light, but that the camera remains very fast and response, similar to the iPhone.
