Nokia Lumia 920 vs iPhone 5 vs Galaxy S III vs HTC One X low-light comparison yields predictable results

0. phoneArena posted on 27 Sep 2012, 06:34

The Nokia Lumia 920 was already demoed to show superior image stabilization while shooting video, compared to its iPhone 5, Galaxy S III and HTC One X peers, but what about low-light still shots, where Nokia claims a strength, too? We saw some low-light shots comparison in a Nokia-controlled setup with an iPhone 4S and a Galaxy S III, and now we have one against those three leading the Android an iOS pack above...

Also, you can buy GS III right now, while L920 you have to wait for.

Would take a Lumia 920 over a PureView 808 no question. Especially after seeing how well the 920 performed here. Great Camera plus you get don't have to sacrifice on other features. I'm really liking this phone man. I might have to double-down and grab one of these to go along side my One X. I'm considering it. Nokia really hit the mark with the 920.

I think the only thing that Lumia 920 camera missed is "Simultaneous HD video and image recording". I remeber last party I was recording a footage with my Lumia 900 and I had to stop the recording and take static pictures which was a pain.

I like android...but I really hope Nokia do well.
That being said oh come on Nokia, if you have the goods your stuff will sell.
Stop drawing comparisons always its starting to get on the nerve. We want to know what your device can do period! Not what it can do compared to others!
Comparisons are relative. If you take a crappy phone and compare it to another crappy phone, does that necessarily mean the less crappy phone is a good phone? NO!

While Nokia was the host for this comparison, it wasn't something they necessarily set up. Engadget came for a visit during one of Nokia's event at their HQ, brought a bunch of phones to compare, and, apparently, were impressed enough with the results to get a few articles out of them

I wish I could write my own article, I love how PA, degrades the one x, on all of these photo shoots. My one x can take 10x better picture then the one displayed. I can prove it. Someone is getting paid to do some dirty work.

These were all shot on auto mode. Yes, if you tweak the settings on any of these phones they might produce better photos (especially the 808), but how many general consumers actually do that? How many whip out their phones, hit the camera button (if they have one, otherwise launch the camera app from the screen) and start recording video or shooting photos without touching the settings?

I dont think Samsung focuses on there camera that much, and they should start doing that with the GS4 because this is a bad comparison for them.

did you read the article?..
it says all of the pictures are taken on Auto mode...

i know the galaxy S3 on the verge article took good night shots because its on night mode... but it cant even match the picture taken with the Lumia 920 even on auto mode...

I dont think Ive said the nokia fared worse, all I'm saying is for comparsions sake you need to try out the night mode, another quiestion is if the Nokia has an explicit "night mode" or its all one mode to rule them all (like the iPhone), for example if you take away of of the iphone HDR setting picture fair less good but suddenly you can't include anything that makes the picture look better on both the One X and the S3? I'm not saying they beat the 920 but rather they fair better than this.
