Nokia Lumia 920 vs 808 PureView: sensor size comparison
Just how much smaller is it? We have the folks from Mobilport tearing the Lumia 920 apart and physically illustrating just how much smaller the sensor is. We’d need to also mention that the Lumia 920 uses the same size of sensor as do other high-end smartphones like the iPhone 5/4S, the Samsung Galaxy S III and the HTC One X.
How important is the size of the sensor for the quality of images? Even technologies like backside illumination and larger apertures don’t contribute as much to low-light performance as does a simple boost in sensor size. With that in mind, take a look at the sensors of the 808 PureView, and Lumia 920 compared side by side below.

You've been trolling about the 920 's weight in the past few articles. if u dont know this is how nokia roll, they make good quality phones at managable weights. and when i mention the word managable, "i mean it". they dont make phones with cheap plastic(No offense here, u made me say it). i know u r rooting for the ATIV s. if u dont like the phone just dont comment.

Personally I LIKE knowing that I can still feel my phone in my pocket. Maybe that's why so many iphone users lose theirs, because they're small and delicate so they slide out easy and it isn't noticeable.

he's/she's really stupid!!! nokia make the most awesome phone and samsung just make awesome hardware components!
ativ S is really cheap.. even early prototype shows it has weak body! even though its also aluminum, N8 has still the best aluminum body!!

Whats the point of having NO weight ,NO thikness and NO technology like iPhone 5 ? iPhone is just a PHONE

According to this the 808's sensor is rectangular(slide 4). But isn't it supposed to be circular?

What devices do you use that uses anything higher than Bluetooth 1 or 2? While some accessories work with BT3 and BT4, most I'm aware of are only up to 2. My mother-in-law's brand new car only uses BT2, and works just fine.

Actually both Lumia 820 and 920 passed FCC certs with 4.0. Keep an eye out.

I love taking pictures, and this makes it tougher than I thought, I wouldn't mind getting a symbian phone, but the Android ui is something I'll miss, and yes I currently have a gsm carrier, help please? :)

it took more than 4 years of hard work to put this pureview technology in mobile phone market.... one of the best and useful innovation in mobile industry by Nokia... now Nokia aquired Scalado ( leader of mobile image industry) as well... so we can expect lot more from Nokia in future on camera and its technology....

I think Nokia should make a poll, asking the users' opinions, whether they want a slimmer phone with a good camera or a slightly thicker phone with an excellent camera.

Wow the 808 sensor looks like a monster

I still prefer a FX or DX CMOS or CCD sensor. As for l lossless, nothing beats RAW over JPEG.
