Nexus 5 vs Nokia Lumia 1020 low-light camera comparison
posted by Daniel P. / Nov 04, 2013, 2:57 AM
As you can see in the shots below, where first is the test image, then there are crops from the same cut from the Lumia 1020 (on top) and Nexus 5, Google's phone holds up fine against the huge sensor and superior OIS suspension of the 1020.
Pics from it are, naturally, noisier and not as detailed as from the 1020, but they seem to be as good as the ones from the LG G2, which we already pegged in our camera comparisons as one of the best Android cameras out there. Regardless, the verdict in this quick comparison unsurprisingly favors the 1020:
Google Nexus 5 OS: Android 6.0 Marshmallow, 5.1 Lollipop, 5.0 Lollipop, 4.4.4, 4.4.2, 4.4 View Full specs
- Display 5.0" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 1.3 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, Quad-core, 2260 MHz
- Storage 32 GB
- Battery 2300 mAh(17h talk time)
- Display 4.5" 768 x 1280 pixels
- Camera 41 MP / 1.2 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus, Dual-core, 1500 MHz
- Storage 32 GB
- Battery 2000 mAh(13.3h 3G talk time)

Yeah it does, 1020 is the camera beast but that'swhere its adadvantages end as a comparison to nexus 5 and other big android devices. Totally craps on iPhone's all around that's for sure.

Camera (phone) beast. A huge difference! iPhone is still a very good phone, no doubt about it. Apple always had very good hardware. Their software now is not so-good though. Same can be said about Lumia/WP. From my limited experience with Lumia 720/620, I wasn't too impressed by the software and apps. But hardware is pretty decent.

not a fair comparison, nexus 5 is no match for 1020 and in fact no other phone is a match to the lumia 1020

This is clearly not a fair test. Of course the Nokia is going to look better. 41MP vs 8MP

No guys, no. You're comparing 100% crops of an 8mp camera vs. 5mp. You should either start from 41mp on the 1020 and resize to 8mp or resize the 8mp output of the N5 to 5mp. It's clear that, looking at your crops, the 1020 images will be sharper. But resize the N5 output to 5mp and check again...

What about availability? If Google just manufactures 10,000 units and shut up, no point. In my country I ordered the Nexus 4 online and I had to cancel because the waiting period increased from 2weeks after 2 weeks it became 3 weeks and after another 3 weeks it became 3 months, and Now I can buy the Nexus 4 when Nexus 5 is out. Wake up, Google is not a hardware manufacturing company it simply does not know how to, it relies on LG, why should LG do something which hurts it's own product line. Now You Choose !!
