Video samples comparison between the Nokia N8 and the LG Optimus 2X emerges
Rather the samples are to demo the Full HD video capture capabilities of the LG Optimus 2X, compared to the HD video from the Nokia N8. The author took the time to post some 100% crops from the videos, and there are slightly more details in the clip shot Full HD with the LG Optimus 2X, as can be expected. In terms of dynamic range, however, the Nokia N8 stays true to color, while the LG's videos look yellowish, and a tad overexposed.
The Nokia N8 keeps up in terms of how fluid the video is when the Optimus 2X shoots at Full HD, but when both phones do 720p video, LG's dual-core creation looks smoother. Bear in mind that Nokia N8 should receive an official bump to 30fps for its video capture with a firmware update, and also that the LG Optimus 2X is still a pre-production unit, so there might be last minute tweaks for the better. All in all, Full HD video looks slightly better-detailed than HD video in this shootout, but, unless you are projecting it to high-res screens, the difference is not night and day. Don't forget to blow up the videos to full screen, so you can fully enjoy the show.

Nice and balanced reporting! This gives prospecting buyers the opportunity for a better perspective to decide which phone to buy instead of being brainwashed by the biases and trashing of some unethical reporters/journalists. Just hard facts, pros and cons are enough for an intelligent buyer to base his decision on. Well done. That's the way to go!

@jack395: I highly agree. If every tech site reviews and features devices objectively the way that GSMArena does its job, "the world would be a better place." ;)

definitly video on nokia n8 is better: maybe because of smaller size video is fast .Lg may be used to record how flover grows but not dynamic scenes....

LG Optimus has more to offer than the n8. It's not like the optimus takes bad quality videos anyway. My money goes to the optimus.

The Nokia N8 has a better quality camera. N8 all the way. And the Optimus does not have more to offer the N8 @530gemini. N8 is better.

Nokia N8 video better it's more true colours. I'll always choosing smart phones with best camera lens and also prefer have a phone with all as possible can specifications. And this can offer only high end devices. BTW i like this LG coz one of the best Android phone in top 5.
Also i more preferwww.phonearena.com website over borringwww.gsmarena.com .

N8, the best camera on a cellphone that I had seen. I love it, becouse the Camera is the best feature in a cellphone for me.

Use the camerapro app on the N8, and compare again, is not the phone, is the native app of the nokia N8 the problem. CameraPro, take all the power of the N8's camera.
