Nokia Lumia 925 is the first phone with six-element camera lens, ISO 3200

Wondered why the newest Nokia Lumia 925 doesn't have a Xenon flash, whereas its Verizon sibling 928 announced last week has one? Well, it might just not be needed, as the camera on the 925, despite sharing specs with the Lumia 920, seems to be quite the improved beast, and not only in terms of new software algorithms, too.

The Lumia 925 sports not two or three, but six lens elements, whereas the most reached so far on smartphones the rank of the iPhone 5 or the 808 PureView are five elements. In addition, the sensor can go as high as the staggering ISO 3200, which would play a big role in those low-light shots, if noise is kept in check, and should also lower the need of a Xenon flash.

Stop it Wendy, don't tell me that you want a vacation by PA again.

There are no more vacations for you. If you keep trolling, PA will send you away to the dumpster.

TROLL and wendygarett are very likely the same person: a paid shill, working for the competition, and their sole purpose is to write hateful and dishonest comments about Nokia and Microsoft.

NOTE: All of their comments should be deleted due to their past violations, and their accounts should be suspended indefinitely. PHONEARENA, please stop allowing this website to become the sounding ground for paid employees of other companies looking to interfere with the review and feedback process.

Noise will be the challenge for the L925. HTC used larger pixels to improve light capture. L925 is going with multiple lens elements. The proof will be in the pics.

yup, 200 to 400 iso is more than enough for me, anything higher would have too much noise.

Hey Nokia,

3200 ISO or 3200 times more noise ? What's the reason to put 3200 ISO on a so much small sensor.

Xenon would be far a better idea.

PS: I'm waiting to see the result thus, because Nokia is a BIG lier (cf: the teaser for this L925)

it means that iso 800 will produce lesser noise.i think.
lol

it means double the noise of the previous step of iso...i.e.,1600ISO...each step goes like 50,100,200,400,800,1600,3200ISO...each step has double the noise of the previous but will help reduce blur by greater extents at higher isos and also produce better photos in low light

because when you're shooting outdoors, xenon flash and OIS wouldn't be that effective, the aperture and ISO are more important
