Nokia Lumia 920 concert video confirms that its mono Rich Recording is nothing to sniff at

It seems that Damian Dinning has been right all along, judging from the amateur video inside, recorded with a Lumia 920 at an indoor concert. We can clearly hear the thumping bass, which rarely gets recorded like that in video footage taken with a smartphone, but also the singer's narrative is easy to catch. Of course, it would be best if we also had it in stereo, but here's to hoping for the next PureView Windows Phone editions...

the guys over at engadget and cnet should be ashamed of themselves... they covered none of these features and made it sound like the camera on this phone is just as good as in other high end phones.

It's photo quality is worse in some cases in full light...

Yup here are the proofs.
"But does all this onboard technology make Nokia's Lumia 920 the best cameraphone on the block? Can it outdo the iPhone 5 in low-light conditions? Does it beat the HTC 8X, another new Windows Phone 8 handset? Is it good enough to replace a stand-alone compact camera? Answers below.
Actually, the answer to all those questions is NO. The Lumia 920 didn't perform as well as expected in our standard set of lab tests for smartphone cameras. In fact, we were surprised to see that this phone isn't really up to much when it comes to taking photos."
"The colors can be odd – while most of the time we’re getting photos that look good, often they don’t appear to be “correct.” Have a peek at our Nokia Lumia 920 camera hands-on post (with bonus comparison to the Samsung Galaxy S III and see how diverse the photos can be. These color variations as well as the end result of photos that with one device appear to be much sharper than the Lumia 920 mean that we’ve got software at work here that attempts to create for you a finished image – not just something raw, but one that always looks “good.” "

Nokia is releasing a firmware update for that. At least in low light, it is the king ;)

Hopefully we'll see a lot more higher quality concerts on YouTube now.

Nokia N8 says hello!! :)
If I am not wrong even Galaxy SII (don't know about SIII or Note/II) got stereo audio recording after some firmware update. Not that it was very impressive.
Nonetheless, your claim is questionable.

You are right, my N8 has stereo recording, and the SG2 afster update.

Stereo recording should have been made possible.
Provided that the video camera is of the best quality among phones, stereo recording would've been a definite plus.
Some of us who buys this phone will want to record certain programs and want to keep it for future purpose...it's even possible that one could try to encode the audio from the video but the audio would remain forever mono. Not complaining about the quality of the sound but stereo recording would've been lovely...
