Check out examples of Rich Capture on the Nokia Lumia 930
Microsoft's version of HDR, which it calls Rich Capture, is being made available for the Nokia Lumia 930, Nokia Lumia Icon and the Nokia Lumia 1520. The feature, which is part of the Lumia Denim update, allows the camera to snap multiple images of the same picture, all at different exposures. The exposures are melded together to form a single image with a more realistic look.

HDR has been available to iOS users since iOS 4.1, and the feature has also been available on Android phones for a few years. In addition to Rich Capture, Moment Capture will allow the same Lumia handsets to record 4K video with a long press of the shutter. Individual images will be available as photographs shot in 8.3MP.

Take a look at a series of "Before" and "After" pictures below, taken with the Lumia 930. They show the more realistic look that your photographs will have once you start using Rich Capture.

Hell, they can insert a Note 4 or Note Edge on any article they post so posting such OSes is a piece of cake to them. Trust me they can.

it looks same because they didn't specify in the article that rich capture shows and works better when you use flash especially in low light.

I don't like these photos. Lack of details. Very bad quality of those photos. Especially when you look on the first two photos.
