The results of this shootout between the HTC One’s “UltraPixels” camera and the Lumia 920’s PureView unit indicate that my suspicions were right. I shall comment no further. The top shot is from the Lumia 920, while the lower one is from the One.
This is a true low-light test of the Lumia 920 vs HTC One, with the shots being taken in a dark environment around 9 PM. The Lumia 920 is not only sharper in the image it produces, but it’s also brighter and clearer. The lighting delivered by the HTC One appears closer to the amount of lighting I perceived at the time, but the quality of the shot is not necessarily better.
