Yep, except in low-light or unstable situations. I think I might wait for the "Phase 3" Lumia next year, maybe it will be the best of both?

the 808 pureview is very good in low light too...
107. Stoli89 (Posts: 333; Member since: 28 Jun 2010)
Yes, it is. But in certain situations (scene shots at night) where the Xenon flash will not come into play, the 920 should provide a better result. Also, in the case of video, the OIS is a big plus. Of course, the 808 provides lossless zoom, which is pretty amazing. As well, the large sensor PureView approach with the 808 means low light noise is greatly reduced. All around, the 808 defintely has the better camera..it's just in certain use cases where the 920's camera has specific design advantages.

Do you guys think of something greater than this?
You ever dream of the 920 combined with 808??
Do you even realize what it could do to mobile cameras? It will kill all of them. Of course it is still a l'le far fetched as of now but i doubt i will take more than a decade...darn! I'm drooling.

I'm expecting something along those lines for "Phase 3", hopefully next year.
78. Nathan_ingx (Posts: 3013; Member since: 07 Mar 2012)
I think next year night be a l'le too soon to see them together in one. Maybe be in 2 years?

Look at the place, this video was shoot in lumia homeland, do u think the result for s3 can be better than 920?
58. -box- (Posts: 3826; Member since: 04 Jan 2012)
Yes. Light works the same in Korea as it does in Finland.
63. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 5484; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)
Nokia's homeland is Finland and this video was taken in Russia's capital Moscow.

people(trolls) who ealier had a major issue with 808, will now have to shut up...the 920 is a complete package,fluid os,great cam,sexy looks,sturdy body,up-to-date hardware and Nokia maps..just hope the price is not more than USD 600,unlocked..

Sorry was supposed to thumb up.
PA, when can we have the option to un-vote something? Especially with the up/down being so close?
64. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 5484; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)
I agree we can't compare Nokia 808 PureView with Nokia Lumia 920, Nokia Lumia 920 is much better.
94. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
not really mate, there 2 differant ways to do a camera cant compare then
the 808 focuses on oversampling and getting noiseless pictures and the lossless zoom which is a great feature-pureview phase 1
the 920 is about excellent low light pics and stabilty thanks to that floating lens -pureview phase 2
both have there merits
so back to your comment the 920 isnt better
95. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 5484; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)
You see you have miss one vital thing, I was talking not only about camera, I was talking overall device!
I was talking about whole device and OS and in my opinion Nokia Lumia 920 is better than Nokia 808 PureView. ;)
96. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
still until you use both it cant be said, plus better for you might not be for others
as for OS why people have a downer on symbian is beyond me. belle fp1 and fp2 are great

yes i get you but im just saying we haven't got hold of it yet, i have high hopes for wp8 and well i know nokia deliver with the camera and build quality
i hope pureview phase 3 combines both and adds more

O.k Nokia seem to concentrating on the Camera functions on there Smartphones,but its just not the camera that everyone wonders about,its the Functions on the phones,with no micro sd card slot but on the 920,an no Bluetooth Sending an Recieving included ,then people will switch to a phones that have these included,Nokia had them on Symbian Phones but why can"t they put them on Windows,just shows why?alot of People have left Nokia for Android phones,Well done Mr Elop another one of your Big Mistakes ever since you stepped in at Nokia
34. haseebzahid (Posts: 1833; Member since: 22 Feb 2012)
they probaly had ran out of space in the phone for SD card slot its over packed with new stuff and 32GB looks huge isnt it the 820 has SD card u can buy that :P

lumia 920 supports bluetooth 4.0...
c'mon dude... read first before you comment, on something...
research... people might believe you!!!
44. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 5484; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)
Yes, Nokia Lumia 920 has Bluetooth but 3.1 not 4.0.
60. -box- (Posts: 3826; Member since: 04 Jan 2012)
It is still preproduction. Final specs aren't fully determined
62. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 5484; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)
No, specifications are already official:

"Its the best dude!" Seriously? Jesus you guys are idiots. Until you get it in your hands and can snap your own pics. Its pr vapourware spin.

Do you even know what vaporsware is? You clearly dont

Sony and Samsung sold stand alone cameras too, so they didn't want their phone camera better than the stand alone camera. Nokia didn't have stand alone camera so they packed their best camera inside the phone but with WP OS it is bad luck for Nokia.

Lumia 920 is having Li-Po battery,Apple iPhone 5 is having Li-Ion battery.Source:ifixit.
FYI:Li-Po battery is better and best than Li-Ion.
45. boblight (Posts: 84; Member since: 28 Jul 2012)
Nice.. This proves that the Lumia 920's camera is even better then those of the same megapixels! (Btw, anyone noticed this video was filmed on a 808 Pureview? You can see it when they were looking at the photos, and the camera guys was holding it)
48. ogtomasx (Posts: 43; Member since: 25 Aug 2012)
Lol... What a joke why would you not use flash its dum, and buy the way just on Os buy buy Nokia, android destroys Windows all day..... If you agree thumbs up, if Nokia doesn't move to android its going to just fade away....
61. -box- (Posts: 3826; Member since: 04 Jan 2012)
Nokia could survive on royalties alone, profit on just R&D, but they choose to make the best consumer phones in the world.
65. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 5484; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)
"What a joke why would you not use flash..."
Because this test was not about that.
WP is also strong OS and I dont think that Nokia will fade away just because of WP.

Dude, when you use flash the object at the center comes out bright and clear but the rest of the room comes out darker.
50. ahhxd717 (Posts: 319; Member since: 08 Dec 2011)
Good for Apple. Obviously they spent a lot of time designing this chip. Too bad it can't run android or WP haha. However, I would hope this phone were faster since it was released like 5-6 months after phones shipping with the S4 did. I wonder how much faster the iPhone 5 feels in normal use compared to the 4S.

Nokia's 920 is definitely the winner between these two phones. I have galaxy s3 Wich takes decent photos @ lowlights imo, It's rare for anyone to take pictures in the dark. I have the galaxy s3 & its not enough to switch unless wp8 os is also just as tempting as Nokia's shooter. I would like to see a comparison between iphones quarts crystal lens camera & . Since all seems to care less what happens to the Android phone manufacturer's & HTC seems to be the only one to make phones of aluminum unlike Samsung's cheap plastic (its still a great & unique phone). I also love multitasking & the android os, but I need stability & all the phone manufacturers think they make better U.I.'I than the default ui, touchwiz is an exception for me. But I've decided that if HTC, samsung or LG don't make a decent looking aluminum phone in the next month then I'm going with apple or the 920...

Samsung Galaxy S III and Nokia Lumia 920 body are made of the same as you call it "cheap plastic" (Polycarbonate). The difference is that Lumia's 920 body is made of monolith peace of plastic while Galaxy's S III body is not monolith.
76. iced_heroine (Posts: 28; Member since: 09 Sep 2012)
920's i tot its plastic like ceramic.. something like that
83. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 5484; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)
Maybe I'm wrong, maybe Lumia's 920 body isn't fully monolith like a Lumia's 900 but it is still made of Polycarbonate.
88. Mobile-X-Pert (Posts: 565; Member since: 20 Dec 2010)
Dude, it's already proven that Polycarbonate is a lot more resistant than the plastic and aluminium used on smartphones.
90. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 5484; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)
"...Polycarbonate is a lot more resistant than the plastic..."
1. Polycarbonate already is a plastic.
2. I didn't said that Polycarbonate is bad material for smartphones.
87. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 5484; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)
I have found official source which proves that it will have bluetooth 4.0. :)
Sad but, I was misled by the official Nokia's web page. :(

Best is best and its clearly better.
77. techguy22 (Posts: 227; Member since: 09 Aug 2012)
the 920 is windows last chance to prove its existence
if windows dont gain marketshare after 920 is release then MS can just kill it.

Somebody's carrying an 808 in that video it looks like...
108. Stoli89 (Posts: 333; Member since: 28 Jun 2010)
What I would like to see early next year is a 4 inch WP8 successor to the 808 that has F2.0 and OIS, like the Lumia 920, AND a 26 MP BIS sensor with 2-3 x lossless zoom and 4:1 oversampling. A small compromise on 808 PureView performance, to accomodate a Lumia style chassis and smaller hump, plus the benefits of the Lumia 920. All in a more pocket friendly form factor for the frequent shooter. One can only hope.
111. andrew1953 (Posts: 175; Member since: 13 Nov 2011)
Having had an N9, I know I must give this Mumia 920 serious consideration.Wish it had a micro SD expansion card or Nokia put out a 64GB version for people on a 2 year contract.
