Nokia Lumia 925 trumps HTC One in improvised low-light photo shootout

Lumia 925 vs HTC One
In case you've watched yesterday's announcement of the Nokia Lumia 925, then you probably know that a huge chunk of the event was dedicated to demonstrating how good the phone's camera is. With 8.7 megapixels of resolution, optical image stabilization, and ISO that can be cranked all the way to 3200, the smartphone's snapper should be theoretically capable of capturing great photos, even in low-light situations. Well, these fine folks actually got the chance to put the handset to the test.

The video below demonstrates how good the low-light photos taken with the Nokia Lumia 925 can be, without even having to have the smartphone's flash turned on. Note that the light that goes off in the video is just for assisting the auto-focus. For comparison's sake, an HTC One – with a 4MP "Ultrapixel" camera and hopefully running the latest software, was also used to capture the same frame, but it didn't do very well. Although the HTC One took a usable photo, the Lumia 925 managed to deliver better results.

Of course, that's just a single photo test so it is too early to draw any final conclusions about the low-light performance of the Nokia Lumia 925. But judging by what we've seen so far, the Lumia 925 is shaping up like a strong competitor in the field of cameraphones.
