Yesterday, our eagle-eyed commenters were among the first to notice a weird reflection on what everyone was led into thinking to be sample video footage of the Nokia Lumia 920…

the iphone 4s's camera is average at best, oversaturated pictures arent better. just because its Apple doesnt make it better

nokia's n8 blew the iphone's camera out the water and its 2 years old now.

Apple cant stand the heat look at them sueing instead of innovating which if they did innovate it would be a first for the company.

Nokia have desided and have brought there A game , the 920 looks to be a excellent phone that will easily compete with current flagship phones

anyway nokia have brought so much to the mobile world.more then Apple . if Nokia get the marketing right they should see sales

Don't hurt yourself razor. I gave Apple as an example of how to do a product announcement. Nowhere in my post was I recommending the iPhone. If you think I was, please provide a quote.

My original point about Nokia needing to decide if they want to play in the present smartphone market still stands. If they want to be taken seriously, they need to bring their A game, not the crap that they tried.

A game, yeah so would A game be maybe bringing the best cameraphone ever out? is that classed as A game? the nokia 808 is just an example of what Nokia do. least they create real innovation.

most phone makers just do the same thing over and over until all phones are the same just in a differrant shell.

this is probably a marketing thing, so it isnt like the developers etc sat down and sed' look lets make some bogus claim about new camera tech then use something else for the ad'. im certain the phone can deliver just the advertising was a major screw up.

but im guessing when you say A game you mean quad core, 8 mega pixel camera, 4.3-5.0 inch screen ohh and probable android.

i think nokia have brought 2 great device that can compete with the present smartphone market

and dont worry i wont hurt myself on this

Bottom line is that the phone takes great pictures but these "promo shots" are fake and it's sad they felt the need to do this and the company thinks there is no one out there smart enough or anyone who cares enough to figure it out in this day and age none the less.

I don't know about exaggerations and stuffs, but me, being a fan of Nokia, don't support what they have been doing. Since the video happened to be fake, questioning the photos is quite fair! Though i believe that it must be genuinely taken from 920, i still am skeptical.

i hope nokia shouldn't fake it.. but knowing nokia's camera phone history, i think nokia can pull through to this drama...

as long as that 920 is superior to N8 and the pureview on 920 is somehow par to 808.. people will buy it!!!

well the 920 wont be on par with the 808 its not designed to be. the 808 is an example of function over form, ditching the slim frame for better tech. but it should wipe the floor with other phone cameras
