The guys at Engadget had access to a Nokia Lumia 920 and went doing a shootout involving the iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC One X.
Here is a sample comparison that shows how good the Lumia 920 is in low light:
Yes; the Lumia 920’s PureView capabilities are for real. Here are excerpts from Engagdet:
It looks like Nokia’s controversial marketing move, which involved using pro DSLRs to “simulate” low-light shooting, was even less necessary than the smartphone maker may have thought.
It’s one thing to snag proper exposure, though — capturing sharp details with little noise and superior color balance is an entirely different beast, and the Lumia managed to do just that, as you’ll see in our 100-percent-view shots further on. Later in the evening we hit the streets of Helsinki for a real-world shootout. The 920 did present some issues with exaggerated shake and other rapid movements, but it offered up excellent results overall, even in scenes that were too dark for us to make out any details with our own eyes.
Oh Lord, I want a Lumia 920 like yesterday. I’m such a sucker for great cameraphones.
