DxOMark tests Lumia 1020 as the best modern phone for still images, lacking in video capture

DxOMark tests Lumia 1020 as the best modern phone for still images, lacking in video capture
The folks at DxOMark, "the trusted industry standard for camera and lens independent image quality measurements and ratings," have put a couple of flagship smartphones through their rigorous testing, and reached conclusions pretty close to our own recent camera battle, putting the Nokia Lumia 1020 ahead of the pack in still images, behind only the 808 PureView.

When taking into account its superior low-light performance, it is ahead of handsets like the iPhone 5s, Xperia Z1 or Galaxy S4, but the video capture quality drags it down in the overall ratings. The overall verdict on the Lumia 1020 abilities?


So does it mean there's a lot more where the 41MP PureView sensor came from after a few firmware updates? Probably, and we'll keep an eye for any and all software algorithm updates to redo the comparison, this time throwing in phones like the Z1 and the upcoming Lumia 1520, which should have a camera to behold, too.
