Nokia Lumia 928 and its high-performance microphone get demonstrated at a NY subway
It may have not been treated to the unveiling ceremony it deserves, but the Nokia Lumia 928 for Verizon is pretty much official. Now Nokia's mission is to make sure that people are aware of what its latest flagship is capable of. What kind of stunts has the company's marketing team come up this time? Well, we saw a video recording comparison between the Nokia Lumia 928, the iPhone 5 and the Galaxy S III, touting the Lumia's optical image stabilization and low-light performance, but that, apparently, was just round one of the whole battle.
This time around, Nokia is showing off the audio recording superiority of the Lumia 928 against... Samsung's flagship of last year – the Galaxy S III. The demonstration takes place in a New York subway station where a band is playing some funky tunes. Unsurprisingly, the Lumia came out victorious thanks to its high-performance microphone, which is capable of capturing audio at high volumes without distorting it. The Samsung Galaxy S III, on the other hand, may sound louder in the video, but its microphone can't quite handle the high sound pressure level, which results in audible distortion.
Of course, let us not forget that the Nokia Lumia 928 has yet to be tested against flagship smartphones from 2013, such as the HTC One or the Samsung Galaxy S4, both of which are probably better at capturing audio than the Galaxy S III. Yet that's going to happen once the Lumia 928 finally hits the shelves. Sadly, we have no information as to when Nokia's new hero is going to launch.
