HTC One vs Nokia Lumia 920 and 720 low-light comparison (video)

HTC One vs Nokia Lumia 920 and 720 low-light comparison (video)
There weren't much dark corners at the MWC expo, but the HTC booth had one, where you could check out the low-light capabilities of the newest One handset with the UltraPixel camera.

It's precisely in this improvised dark room where a fight was staged between the reigning low-light champion Nokia Lumia 920, as well as the newer Lumia 720, and the HTC One, taking one and the same picture, and judging the results. 

We won't spoil the ending, so check out the two videos below. Needless to say, we can't wait to get the hold on a retail HTC One unit, and stage some real cagefight with all the heavyweight camera wrestlers.

What a pathetic argument. You are implying that the guy somehow managed to doctor the pics in nokia's favor even though the pics were snapped on camera and shown on camera for you eyes to see.

Shameful attempt to help htc save their face after all their ultrapixel marketing hype. BTW here is a link to android australia (android fan site) where even the blogger agreed the 920 won.

There was even that neowin comparison.

+++well done..
in other case camera isnt all expect that we need from a super phone..
in that case we see compare btw nokia lumia 920 and one camera but in overall and the other spc compare htc one wipe out 920 easily like smoke..
sound-screen-size-software-hardware and so so..
lumia`s camera is great no doubt but it hasnt more amazing option like one..

i think that vs the lumia 920 htc had the iso or the saturation high, thats why it's so bright. against the 720 was fair. still nokia the best

and who cares? It's running symbian for crap's sake, that camera could seek out the most beautiful woman in the world and show me whats under her unmentionables and I STILL wouldn't buy one over an HTC One...or a Lumia 920 for that matter.
That phone is irrelevant regardless of how good the camera is.

And why do you think ppl would car what YOU buy..dont think of yourself as the go-to guy before anyone wants to buy a cell..And obviously you'd be happy and GAY cos any girl who shows her unmentionables and is beatiful will do warrant a second look..

Oh yeah sure it's just what I think right? Enlighten me then as to why Nokia had to ditch symbian. I gues I'm the only one who didn't like it. Yeah sounds like a legitimte argument you've got there.
And if you people think you actually get under my skin by using my own outlandish example against me and call into question my sexuality? You're not only sorely mistaken, but pretty lackluster at dealing out ad hominem attacks.as well. Real winner we got here!

Well, thank God you don't care, by your pathetic example you're not looking for a good camera, not even a good smartphone, the solution to your problems is in the internet porn, google it, and leave tech stuff to others.

No I definitely am looking for a good smartphone, and I'm looking for it first and foremost. Which is exactly why I don't give a damn about the 808. What use is a good camera attached to an OS that has prettymuch DIED. Stop drinking the kool-aid, and get off the fanboy wagon.
My example is pathetic? I'll refer you to the last half of my reply to "brucewayne".

Ta-da! If you're looking for a good smartphone why are you even criticizing the best camera phone? Yes, symbian right now is pretty much a feature phone with some cool games and essential apps but that doesn't mean that is not the best camera around, I can assure that it actually beats any camera up to entry level DSLRs. You clearly don't understand that some people need a good camera all the time, and people that does, don't care that for you a good smartphone is something where you can install 500.000 apps, respect if you want to be respected. Power is not about what you can do with it, is what you actually do.

You sort of answered your own question. I'm interested in good smartphones...not just good camera phones. I NEVER argued that the 808 wasn't the best camera phone, but that camera alone isn't enough to keep it from being irrelevant.
Agan with the personal attacks I see? You can E.A.D. as well. Yeah I understand that some people need a good camera one them at all times...BUT THAT DOESN'T MAKE THE 808 A RELEVANT DEVICE! Do you get it yet? Yes it serves a purpose, yes it's good at that purpose, but that doesn't change anything. It's not the same type of device as the One or even the Lumia 920, stop fooling yourselves.

Why even bother? No camera in a smartphone coming out within the next 1 or 2 years will get close to the 808 in terms of quality. Nokia will make a successor to the 808 before another smartphone even gets close to that quality. You know why? Because the 808 is a niche device that only appeals to the very, VERY small part of the market; and most people would rather buy a separate dedicated camera and another phone before buying the 808.

Sure, Nokia makes the best cameras, especially the 808. However, the 808 is nearly twice the thickness of the One (including the camera bump), and it runs an outdated OS.

The cons HEAVILY outweigh the pros on One vs. 808.

808 was defenetly a prototype most of its part it wasnt even given a marketing to sale it wide just showed on photo stunts so people can have idea about it and the mean reson was this research was going on for like 5 years on symbian so it was bad to drop the prototype

HTC, Sony, Apple, Samsung are actually all trying to catch up to the N8 let alone 808 PV!

I learned that BS really BS after awhile too when pre-production and production really turned out the same, SGS2 was the exception before release and after in terms of performance

Htc has to improve the image quality on the one before they release it, otherwise no one will believe their ultrapixel technology
