Another Lumia 920 camera comparison in low light, this time against the iPhone 5

Another Lumia 920 camera comparison in low light, this time against the iPhone 5
Taken at Photokina, a comparison picture was Tweeted by Kristina Björknäs, a physicist for Nokia. Again, assuming that conditions were equal for each handset, it would seem that any concerns that might have existed about the iPhone 5’s camera lunging ahead of the yet-to-be-released Lumia 920 are not necessary.

Yet again, it looks like the Lumia 920 is delivering some earth shattering low-light performance. From what we have seen so far, there does not seem to be anything that can match the Lumia’s camera.

Another Lumia 920 camera comparison in low light, this time against the iPhone 5
If real world performance matches all these sneak peeks we have been getting, it is fair to say that there will be a new king-of-the-hill with regards to smartphone cameras.  That is no small feat given our positive experience with the iPhone 5's camera.

Of course, once the Lumia 920 is finally available, we are going to have to make a priority of conducting a dedicated camera comparison between all these flagship devices and report to you where the rubber meets the road.

The real challenge will be to conduct an apples-to-apples omparison between the iP5, GS III and the L920. May the best camera/handset combination win!

I love my GS3, but I have to say, Nokia knocked it out of the ballpark with the new camera.

Well, with the fake L920 pics and vids, I am waiting for an objective third party review. Nokia didn't exactly build their credibility, if you know what I mean.

They're already out. The fake stuff is old and forgotten except by anti-Nokia-ists

Max, king if the hill is, and will remain for some time, the Nokia 808 PureView. The 920 is great, and does some amazing tricks, and excepting OIS (which is arguably repeatable with a fancy mount) and low lighting software (and the hardware integration), the 808 is still king, then the 920, then the N8, then probably some Sony, and a few steps down the iPhail5

What is the "even gs3" in your post?
Do you know anything better than GS3?

If Lumia 920 has a great camera and why on Earth did they faked the samples at its launch. That is very immature for them to fake photo sample. Faking photo samples is Engadget's job and Engadget will sue them for this stunt.

lol about engadget!

but I don't think they were really trying to fake, or at least not intentionally i hope - just bad press approach!

c'mon seriously, aren't the other photo samples proof enough?

I am eager to see the real uploaded images and the wait is killing me. All samples are done on the Lumia's display and I wish I could see it on my monitor.

indeed lumia 920 has a great camera... but i think the reason why they did it in their samples because the phone is still in prototype... and as you can see even its still in prototype and not yet in the final version it is already very capable of what nokia has done in the faked ads...

Good point and moreover Windows Phone 8 isn't finished yet.

im hoping windows 8 brings out the best in it... especially the very basic features which are not available on W 7.5M

I doubt Nokia would take such a huge risk faking comparison photo's, people are going to get their hands on a 920 sooner or later. Despite what happened before I find it hard to believe they'd do it again.

Windows Phone 8.0 is finished, (it has RTM status). MS just doesn't want to reveal what it can do yet.

"Of course, once the Lumia 920 is finally available, we are going to have to make a priority of conducting a dedicated camera comparison between all these flagship devices and report to you where the rubber meets the road"

- yeah, maybe for academic research purposes, and sure, I'll be interested to find out

But really, for all practical purposes, I think the comparison's can really stop - it gives an impression to the other folk that there still is some lingering doubt about who the winner could be.

but there really isn't any - Lumia you beauty!

I don't think this is going to work... I give serious props to Nokia for the incredible camera tech they're stuffing into phones, but I doubt the majority of cellphone buyers out there will know this or even care. Sadly, most consumers are apparently driven by the look of the phone, and not the features of the phone :/. Apple has been proving that fact for many years.

and from what i can see... the nokia lumia 920 made a fuss with its design...
yeah its the same with the n9, but hey, look at that beauty..
u think the iphone 5 can match that design?
i doubt it.. oh, actually, im quite sure of it... they wont!!
lumia 920 is the best design available right now...
with different colors to choose from and with TRUE INNOVATION...
unlike those iphones and galaxies..
htc 8s and 8x were cross breed of NXT and lumia...

I am not even disagreeing with you. But, if Nokia wants to succeed, they need the best of nearly every world. Photo quality, call quality, screen quality, OS ability (WP8 better not disappoint or have a lot of glitches at launch), Nokia features, exclusives, ECT.

They have no room for error. The iPhone is so established they can re-release the 5 for the next three years and turn huge profits.
