    I have Lumia 920 with Peurtico pre-installed. Since I am not a professional photographer, what is the best MANUAL settings that for daylight pics, which would generate day light pictures better than iPhone 5 with as much details as possible?

    Turn off flash, turn off focus light...set ISO to 100 or so, and try. You can turn the exposure down to. Take a couple of samples with different settings, then you use the settings you like the most :) If you hold the phone as steady as you can, it will be sharper and more detailed. If you take landscape photos I usually find using the camera button to focus and shoot to be great, but when it's a specific object that's not so far away, I point the screen and shoot. :)

    Even though your not a professional photographer, the settings should be easy to learn. :)
    Have you ever had a dream, Neo, that you were so sure was real? What if you were unable to wake from that dream? How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world?

    Thank you. The settings are easy to learn but I need to learn the kind of output those settings will generate

    You will get that by experience. There are no settings set in stone. Every factor makes a different. You location, lighting, shadows, mist etc. You have to play around with it, take experimental shots and learn the settings your self based on your environment.

    Stick with all auto for now. Instead learn general photography concept like composition and exposure first and it will be 1000 times more useful. Afterwards you can play with the camera settings.

    You can also try using "Sports" under scenes, this will guarantee a fast shutter and will prevent blurry shots from shaky hands or moving subjects. Also you can manually pick Daylight or Cloudy under white balance depending on whether its sunny or cloudy. Don't forget to switch back to auto when in doors or pictures will be dark.

    It's the flash that turns on just a bit to help the camera to focus in dark environments.
    Have you ever had a dream, Neo, that you were so sure was real? What if you were unable to wake from that dream? How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world?
