Lumia 920 camera beats iPhone 5 and Galaxy S III in low-light... in a Microsoft ad
posted by Ray S. / May 24, 2013, 2:58 AM
At the end of the ad, we see the shots from all three phones being compared, making it look as if the Lumia 920 is way, way better that its competition. Of course, it's safe to say that the shots presented by the ad are completely fake, since they simply make the image from the Lumia 920 seem perfect, and we all know that Lumia 920 images are far from perfect.
Go ahead, watch the ad and share with us what you guys think! Is the Lumia 920 really that good?

I maybe wrong but I doubt its truth. If you look at the head of that character with costume. You can see two glares in Lumia 920 on right and left side above his eyes. It is partially visible on iphone 5's image but it can't be seem on GS3 at all. I mean if there was some light GS3 would have definitely picked that up at least to some extend, right ? I agree Lumia has better low light camera but that difference is too good to be true !

Low light pictures with Lumia 920 are indeed that good. We have compared my Lumia 920 and my friends GS3 in low light, because he also doubted the L920 performance, and he was speechless with the result. The point is that different ppl have different expectations from their device. I, for example, want a smooth and simple OS combined with a good camera, from a company that builds way above average quality phones and has great support (hardware and software-wise). My friend cares for that extra 0.4 inches of extra display and the openness of Android. Marketplace apps is not an issue anymore, new apps show up fast these days. OK, we have to admit that WP8 still misses some capabilities, but the 8.1 update is right around the corner...

It's the real deal, trust me. I use a similar test to show off the low light capabilities to customers all the time. I use a dark closet in the corner of my store, and take pictures with no flash on the lumia and whatever other phone is laying around (GS4, GS3, iPhone 5, Optimus G, etc.). The result is the same every time, and it blows me away how much difference there is.

HTC ONE has better low light performance. Galaxy S4, nokia not dare to face, has a much better camera.... Look at the latest camera test here at Phone arena. Phone arena ? why do you just Microsoft advertising here?

okay so this i fake? it really annoys me when PA says things that simply isnt true, the pic from L920 is far from perfekt, a system camera would have been a million times better! However the windows team know how to use the pureview tech for best results, something that PA clearly has no knowlegde about. The OIS enables the camera shutter to be open longer and therefor take in more light, hence the bright picture, the problem is that with even a little motion the picture gets blurry in dark situations, even with the OIS. as seen in the ad they use something to fixate the phones and the result is really something special. I have taken pictures in the dark that lets me se things i couldnt se with my own eyes with L920.

The ONE does not have better low light. It has great low light, but the Lumia still edges it out by a small margin. Screw PA's camera tests, do your own and see the difference. That being said, the ONE is an amazing phone... and if I didn't love my Lumia, I would own one in a heartbeat.

waht ppl mean is in trying to glorify the superiority of the Lumia's low light camera capabilities they are inadvertently showcasing teh superior quality of Samsung's screen..screen quality being a much greater determinant of whether or not a person purchases a smartphone than it's low light camera capabilities..topic of this article notwithstanding

Don't pick on Microslush cuz they have deep pockets and can afford to pay handsomely for the recent barrage of Micro-related articles on PhoneArena. But, I wonder if they're paying PA the same premium they pay over at Engadget to get the same articles published: inquiring minds want to know??????????

920 images are far from perfect, but in low light that's a pretty accurate representation. Pretty much the whole world knows these cameras on Nokia do really well in low light. My iPhone does cr*p in the dark.

What the hell are you thinking?...it's there commercial, so it's only logical that they would make the Lumia 920 the star-of-the-show just like what everybody else is doing in their own commercial. ---makes sense right?
