Nokia Lumia 920 vs Galaxy S III: toy car test flaunts the virtues of optical image stabilization

0. phoneArena 21 Sep 2012, 05:36 posted on

The ride has been much bumpier for the Galaxy S III, it seems, when comparing the final results, as the Lumia 920 video stayed pretty fixed at all times, aided by the suspensions mechanism around the 920 camera module, which can compensate for up to 500 movements per second...

I would love to see the OIS to other devices as well, but I think it would take years to reach other devices, for unlike nokia, other OEM really cares about the thickness of their phones.

who gives a crap about thickness it's all about the features and the cool techy stuff and you wouldn't be saying that if the sgs3 was thick it's the only thing all you guys hold against the lumia 920

HAHAHAHAHA You're funny dude, hatin' all the way without reading and comprehending what I just commented.

Read it again, i must say. Stop the hate, I'm just stating that "OTHER OEMs REALLY CARE ABOUT THE THICKNESS!" I don't mind having a thick phone. That's what I want.

I love lumia 920 even if I don't own one. And I think it's the most innovative phone to date. You're being ridiculous.

Looking at the videos of it in-hand, it really doesn't seem that thick. There also aren't reactions of "Sweet rampaging squirrels, this is heavy!", either. Are other devices thinner and lighter? Sure. Do a lot of those same devices wind up encased in some thick ugly shell, rendering their thinness and design irrelevant? Yes they do.

Why did it seem like it was so hard to figure out how to play a video on the Nokia?

It's not hard if you know how to operate a WP7 camera/video since the interface is similar to WP8. The guy actually started taking a new video intead of swiping from the left to the right to bring out the video they had just taken from the toy car. Right away I knew he was new to Windows Phone. LOL!

Or, you can buy an L920 when it becomes available.

2 aspects of INNOVATION: 1) Experiment tool (The toy car) 2) Lumia's camera

TRUE TRUE! remove the noise from the toy car and you'll have a good video cam for creating a small video clips or mini movies. :D

Hands Down! Nokia win, but seeing how that guy struggle to get the video play on Nokia, is kinda unproductive.

Why the S3 doesn't have enabled the image stabilisation feature? seems pretty unfair this test. I love the new Lumia 920 (except for the lack of the micro-sd and being so thick) but i wanna get more impressed with the results in a fair match :).

I wouldn't be calling other people sheep when Nokia has its own Finnish colored sheep going baaa baaa all over. I wonder who has been keeping Symbian alive all this time? Baaa Baaa.

What is so "sheepish" about his comment?

The man is the proper angry fanboy who cannot tolerate an unbiased comment about his favorite mobile device.

Oh yeah, i'm a fanboy of android, which doesn't have one right now. First, i like Android very much, but i've an iPhone 4S because i'm a developer, i sold my galaxy s2. I'm planning to get this Nokia with a Note 2, and have both for development.

well, to be honest i don't get those devices for free, but i consider it an investment, because that enable me to be able to work for customers that needs apps for a specify platform, also i'm working on my own apps and i want to be able to make these apps cross platform. Emulators are good, but not as good as hardware device.

For example android emulator, is not that fast and accurate for games. iOS Emulator doesn't provide good solutions for GPS tracking.

I'm sure the digital image stabilisation was on in the S3 otherwise the video taken would have been worse from the way the toy car was jumping around.

They should have shot their Test Video with a Nokia. The camera they used isn't even as good as a phone.
