My point is that resolution, at least for me and also for most people I've talked to, is the most important feature with respect to image quality.

If all you did was exchange the sensor in the GNex's camera for a different sensor that was appropriately sized for 8MP, and you left everything else about the camera the same, then it would take better pictures - at all light levels - than it currently does. Is that not true?
As I don't want to take this thread too much into camera discussion, I answered your question in PM. Bottom line is 5MP is non-issue at all light levels.
