Nokia Lumia 920 vs Samsung Galaxy S III vs HTC One X image stabilization test pops up

Nokia Lumia 920 vs Samsung Galaxy S III vs HTC One X image stabilization test pops up
After we saw the Nokia Lumia 920 toiling around a parking lot next to an iPhone 5, recording non-jerky video, now is time to measure up its performance with the Galaxy S III, and the HTC One X.

We already saw a Russian comparison with the Galaxy S III, with both handsets mounted on a toy car, and given a ride around the office, but we haven't seen a comparison with HTC's finest, so check it out below.

Naturally, both the Korean and the Taiwanese Android devices don't sport a whole sophisticated suspension mechanism around the camera module to compensate for up to 500 movements per second. That mechanism is likely what makes the Nokia Lumia 920 much thicker than both the S III and the One X, but judging from the results, the tradeoff is worth it.

Only if you're making one on a low-budget not for theatrical release, but otherwise, yeah. Might want to have an 808 too, just for good measure. Could get both for the cost of one DSLR body

There's also the best display, with 1280x768, much faster refresh rate and ability to be controlled with gloves or fingernails. There's also lifetime offline voice-guided navigation for more then 110 countries. There's also ability to be wirelessly charged.

Have you ever use a smartphone before? Do you know that a smartphone can turn to sleep mode (turn off) on a button?
Press the power button, the phone lights up again and it safe to put it in your pocket.
I've been using HTC for almost 4 years now, the HTC Legend, works like wonders. I've tried hundreds of apps before and today, I only use like 10 to 15 useful apps. Went to the Nokia shop, look into Windows Phone 8 apps, there are 20-40 useful apps that I might be using them.
920 is my next phone, for its camera, apps and tech. You have DSLR but you still have to carry both; one around your neck and the other in your pocket. I will only bring my Nokia and it'll be in my pocket. 2 in 1, zip.
Basically, you look into iP 5/S3/920, you look into what best features these phone has and you'll be asking the same question again; is the best feature only thing its good at?
All phones has the exact same function, only the tech divides them. I'm moving on to Windows Phone 8, for it's camera and fun UI- N 920.

Nokia seems to be doing really great up there. But the question remains : Do we need a really-great-camera for our just-smartphone?

The Lumia 920 is a great package of hardware, amazing display, probably amazing sound knowing Nokia, amazing camera, amazing build, amazing design, amazing connectivity, amazing processor, but THEN came the crappy Windows Phone... :/

Dude learn to adopt to the new stuff. I know WP7.5 was really restricted, but I like the way how WP8's gonna be semi-restricted ecosystem. Symbian was great but try to give up on it now. If Nokia would have made the same phone with Symbian I'm sure that it would've proven a market failure... everybody hates limited ecosystem.

I've had 4 Android phones and unfortunately need to use 1 before Nokia Lumia 920 is available. My experience of using Android phones is bad. They are not secure at all. My wife made mobile banking with Android device and had to change her credit card several times. Now she uses only laptop with Windows and it makes a difference. Windows phone OS has the same core as desktope Windows and it's much more secure. And it looks great! Think about it, the design of all Android phones is stolen from old windows desktop design - just icons on a wallpaper. Some functions were stolen from iOS.
Windows phone 8 OS is step forward, they developped new great design with interactive windows, I think people just need to get used to it and they will love! (Add MS Office, XBox games, Nokia Maps and other great apps)

Cores aren't everything. Nice, but not everything.

Not only that, when more cores become the norm, WP8 is future-proofed up to (I think) 64-core processors. I can barely conceptualize that.

I wouldn't say horrible, just that digital IS is pretty rotten. It crops the outside edges of the video (hence the zoomed-in look) and lowers the MP count usually to raise the refresh rate. Looks crummy on both the ip5 and also this 1X

The HTC actually did better that the GS3 with image stabilization but the One X's video quality looks like s**t! The GS3's quality doesn't look much better but there's something going on here with the video quality on both Android's. Either way, props to Nokia, that's pretty impressive.

Sony's cameras are present in the iphone 4s and 5.

They lost.

So unless there's something that Sony kept for itself in its own phone cameras, I doubt the result will change.

That said, I would fully expect Sony, Samsung, and HTC to pick up Nokia's gauntlet and try to put their own excellent camera techs into their future phones. I would be disappointed if they didn't.

I have to say the video taken by 920 is the best out of it. But as an owner of One X, I feel like the footage I have taken with mine is a lot better than what they got. That aside, when comparing footage between One X and 920, the One X's video a lot more zoomed in. I'm just a bit confused.

My Htc's camera isnt that bad at all. I think they are slandering other companies phones to make theirs look better. Overall my One x, out performs MY GS3 in video and photos.

Lumina has always had crap screens, low resolution and crap PPI.

Lumina? orly?? You don't even know its name and you go on analyzing the 'Crap screens' and 'low res' xD And why the heck do you own two android flagships dude? They do the SAME thing. Could've invested your money into something else. I rather not care though..

Dude you said crap screen,
HTC One X- 4.7
Nokia 920 - 4.5
HTC wins...

Low Resolution,
HTC One X- 720 x 1280 hd
Nokia 920 - 768 x 1280 hd+
Nokia wins...

Crap PPI,
HTC One X- 312 ppi
Nokia 920 - 332 ppi
Nokia wins again...

Camera hmm...leave it...
Nokia is by far better than Htc...
Plz think about it....

I don't get you people. Lumia 920 is great but it's not an all round phone. Samsungs s3 is an all round phone. It performs slightly above average in all aspects and that's why it's considered the top android device. When you use an s3 you will understand that in everything mobile if it can't deliver best results atleast it gives you something similar or close enough.

29. eisenbricher (Posts: 972; Member since: 09 Aug 2012)


How can you say that before it's released and some of its features are still not known?
I don't get your definition of 'all round phone'. I agree that it's one of the best phones, and certainly has raised some bars. 920 will raise bar on camera performance and maybe, screen, wireless charging and touchscreen. When it gets released your GS3 most probably won't stay a good all round phone anymore.

Agree GS3 is a good pnone, but Lumia 920 is the best and outperform GS3 in many aspects. And please remember about Nokia excellent quality. I still have my Nokia 6310i and E71, they work great and it's always a pleasure to work with them. Nokia has been making the best quality pnones for decades.
Forgote to mantion that Android sucks (I used it a lot and I knopw it sucks).

The GS3 is a great all-arounder, yes. But it doesn't push any envelopes, and was evolutionary, not innovative, thus not very exciting. The GS2 was exciting because nothing else could touch it. GS3, not so much. The Lumia 920 is very exciting because it's so vastly different, new, and unique versus other phones, as it combines so many true INNOVATIONS into one device

At no time did Nokia state that the images were definitively from a 920. The ad team messed up and didn't put disclaimers with the images. Most of the world has forgotten about it; you should too. They admitted the mistake, and are now proving their prowess and ability to make the best smartphones in the world.

excuses, excuses, excuses - that's all i here from these butt-hurt android fanboys. The gs3 and htc 1x are buggy as hell, no matter how hard you try to convince yourselves they're not. If we wanted smartphones with nothing more than useless gimmicks, we'd go out and buy androids Fortunately we're a bit more intelligent than that.
