Can you tell the difference in this Lumia 925 vs. 928 video comparison?

Can you tell the difference in this Lumia 925 vs. 928 video comparison?
Nokia has enough flagship devices in the market that it can finally start competing with itself when it comes to camera performance. Yes, we know the cameras on the Lumia 920 and Lumia 928 are not absolutely perfect, but they are top performers by any measure and we presume that performance will be at least as good or better with the Lumia 925, which has the distinction of bearing six lens elements in its camera assembly.

Pared with optical image stabilization, Nokia has created some highly capable cameras on these smartphones. They take great pictures and shoot very nice video. While we have seen some instances of the Lumia 925 strutting its stuff against the venerable Lumia 920, it is only natural that Nokia’s newest will eventually face each other as well.

The folks at SuperHDView have taken a short video sample of the two super-Lumia’s side-by-side as they panned across the landscape.

Having viewed the sample several times in full HD, we could not see any difference, can you?  Naturally, we will have an in-depth review of the Lumia 925 in due course, and we will be able to share our insights on its camera performance in great detail with you.

1) it is a free website 2) it is free because it is ad-supported and they get $ from OEMs for showing off their wares 3) Lumias are popular devices, if only for comparison purposes for hardcore fans of other OS options 4) They do the sake thing for other flagships, like all the galaxies, iphone, One, etc; Nokia launched two flagships for two different carriers that are different than each other (rather than one model on all carriers with minor under-the-hood differences like galaxy or iphone lines), hence more coverage and comparisons 5) Nokia deserves some spotlight here for its camera prowess and responding to customer and media feedback 6) You probably wouldn't have a cell phone without Nokia. It could still be something reserved for the Wall Street type to be always connected with their business, or other globetrotting types. They may not have come down in price or widespread availability without the competition and innovations Nokia brought to the table. Again, possibly, not certainty, as Siemens did a good amount as well, and other OEMs might have filled that void (but unlikely) 7) You can filter the homepage if it bothers you so much. There's other websites, too 8) or you could grow up, shut up, and move on, realizing it IS NOT THAT BIG OF A DEAL.

Your kidding. These two devices are ugly. No wonder nokia is flaking behind android, which is flaking real bad against apple. I think apples taking over

Yeh that but also the thing I do most on my android is customization and tweaking internals and stuff but on my WP i can't really do any of that customization, I mean I can change the size of tiles and the color of them but that's really it, don't get me wrong it's a beautiful looking OS but IMO it is more for first time users who don't do much heavy usage...however in some respects it's better but in many it still lags behind android...

I agree with most of that..but don't agree with the new users, of course it's great for new users but I've been an android guy since day one and while jumping to WP8 took some time to get used I find it refreshing and fast and most of all it feels right when using... Yeah so a thumbs up from me for a real honest post that wasn't fan boyish at all.

Yes I also miss alot of features on WP8 which I had on android like customization,multi tasking is worse just like iOS,file manager,notification center,and some apps+games etc hope some of them fixed in next update. and your right currently android is better than iOS & WP who knows the future but all OS Cool in their own way.

True, not as much tweaking, but I switched from Android (and before that Symbian) to Windows Phone and haven't felt the need to tweak or customize. There isn't a feeling like I need to show off what it can do because it just WORKS and it is highly intuitive and quick. While my acquaintances with androids wait for their launchers to restart or reset the device because it froze or are working through the lag, I've already accomplished the same task (even one with a GS4!). I've played with newer androids like the GS3, 4, and Notes and the LG Optimus G and the HTC One, and each time it feels like a chaotic mess, and it is such a relief to go back to my Lumia (even more so when I get the 925). At least we can agree that both are better than ios, right?

HTC One, Sharp Aqus SH-01D , Lumix Phone P-05C. Get on my level. Both the sharp and Lumix had it back in 2011, OIS is nothing new kids so stop lying to yourselves that Nokia is king of cameras, there are plenty of smartphones you kids have no idea exist that beat out all the current US flagships.

Nokia might not have been the first when it comes to OIS, but it was the one who made it famous and showed that it can be implemented in mobiles. iPhone was not the first with capacitive screen, but it was the one who made it popular. Galaxy Note was not the first with phone with screen greater than 5", but it was the one who opened that market segment. iPad was not the first tablet, but again, it was the one who opened that segment. So even though nokia was not the first, it implemented OIS the best just like above devices did their respected features. If HTC one (and future phones) have OIS, it's because Lumia 920 has it, not because some minor manufacturer bought it first to the market. and yes, Nokia is the king of camera in phones. The "plenty of smartphones you kids have no idea" might be able to beat iPhones or Galaxies but not the 808, it the only phone who competes with dedicated cameras. So yes, Nokia is the king of cameras in phones.

"Nokia is the king of cameras in phones." I agree they got awesome camera especially in law light and their still improving it.

Really, those pos made in Japan?

Exactly what i was thinking. I searched that Lumix phone on the web and guess what - it is not a phone at all. It is a dedicated camera, closer to Galaxy camera than a phone. Also, I can surely say that OIS in those devices is worser than Digital stabilization used in iPhones and Others, let alone the OIS used in 92x and One.

Nokia fanboys always like to take credit from others. "Nokia made the first handheld mobile phone." False, it was Motorola! "Nokia made the first camera phone." Nopes, Sharp did! Now, it's "nokia made the first phone with OIS." SMH
