Lumia 920 camera beats iPhone 5 and Galaxy S III in low-light... in a Microsoft ad

0. phoneArena 24 May 2013, 02:58 posted on

In what seems to be one of the most absurd ads we've seen in a while, the Nokia Lumia 920 has managed to beat the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S III in term of low-light photography...

Ray.S, why do you waste our precious time trying to pretend that Apple and Samsung high end offerings perform equal or better than Nokia's flagship products for low light mobile device photography, when that is clearly not the case? The Lumia 920 has dominated a vast number of these types of tests on a variety of occasions, and Microsoft is simply stating the obvious without bothering to repeat the same tests over again...

Don't you have anything better to do with your time?

I have a Nokia Lumia 920, my friend has a Samsung S4, the only thing fake here is you!
Do not believe me, how hard it is to take the S4 or iPhone 5 and take a picture at night against Lumia 920.
How come I know that you have not done it already?
Because if you were already doing this, you would not write the nonsense .

No, the job of a reviewer is to check the facts rather than provide unfounded assumptions.

yes, to criticise based on fact. where is your fact and sense? you get so emotional, and uses strong words like fake, absurd with little to back your word up. In low light condition, do you dare to say S3 & I5 can show the amount of details as L920? If no, that's the point of this ad. Period.

how do you know its lies and these are fake. your talking as if your on more knowable ground then anyone else. besides ive never seen you say anything to that level about apple or samsung

you wonder why people are starting to move away from this site and theres your answer. they dont wont fanboys reviewing and letting there own bias influence the review to the level it does on yours.

im sorry but considering you only appear when apple are been slated your in no position

if this was against an apple ad you would attack him hard. these arent honest opinions he stated it as a fact that its fake

you need to learn opinion and fact and whats the difference as by your logic if i say something like apple are crap or samsung are going bankrupt this is fact.......thats your logic

obviously those 2 comments i said were just to demonstrate you bias i dont believe them

"....if this was against an apple ad you would attack him hard.."
On the other article about a new Apple ad, Alan said "Apple needs to show why people choose its smartphone over others. So the ads basically say, if you like taking pictures or listening to music, you should own an iPhone"
Did I attack him? Nah.
Stop f**cking around me, get some valid points and then try to argue.

You didn't attack Alan because he's not your target. Your target is xperiaDROID. Am I right?

No. I have had a lot of arguments with several different people a.k.a. fandroids on this tech site. You're not the only one, chill.
Plus for your age, try not to be harsh on a reviewer the next time.

ohh please you muppet, your an apple fanboy and ray here is known for his bias for apple. you will blindly support him and thats where your credibilty goes. you have none. you have no valid points you just another fanboy that wastes space on here commenting

The only thing "safe to say" here is that this article is a biased piece of junk. If an author isn't capable of keeping a professional tone when writing articles, he should reconsider his job.

Sure any ad by any company will show the product's best side, but saying these pictures are "completely fake" just discredits the author, who obviously also has never tried the Lumia 920 in low light.

Ray might want to look up the term "libel" before flapping his lips. He's probably upset that phone arena's own crappy shoot-out has been exposed as "completely fake".

For me, it looks as if Lumia 925 was used in this video. look at the rounded camera hole.
As for ray s. and his pathetic hatred towards Nokia and microsoft. His camera comparison was one of the worst so-called reviews I've ever seen in my long life.
He doesn't even know how to properly use a device and squizz as much as he can from this amazing piece opf technology, yet he dares to claim that lumia's capabilities are far from perfect. Really, ray? And maybe your precious apple or galaxy make better? Especially in low light? Yeah, right. Nokia prowess and OIS is a gimmick, right? And 920 is not known for its amazing low light shots?
LEARN HOW TO USE NOKIA'S PHONES, THEN DO COMPARISONS AND PUBLISH THEM. Your vpoint of view is so misshapen that you should have been sacked off a long time ago.
I've got a yellow one and results come totally different from what I've seen in your so-called tests.
If you don't know how to use a certain device, don't use it.
Even sites which are mostly against Nokia, praised 920 abilities when the source of light was more than stingy,

I wasn't surprised at the tone of the article, after seeing the name of author........ Second article in a day, bashing Microsoft........... Ray S, grow up, stop being a fan boy, report fact not your fiction........ Nokia Lumia 920 easily trumps any smartphone in low light shots......... Well I agree that daylight shot are different story altogether, but this ad focuse on low light shots, and if you had all three device then you will surely know, that in low light shots 920 is king..........
