Nokia compares low light video abilities of Nokia Lumia 920 and Samsung Galaxy S III

Nokia compares low light video abilities of Nokia Lumia 920 and Samsung Galaxy S III
Last month, we showed you a comparison of photographs taken in low-light conditions by the Apple iPhone 5, Nokia Lumia 920, Google Nexus 4, Samsung Galaxy S III and the BlackBerry Z10. In that comparison, the Nokia Lumia 920 performed the best. The only camera that came close to the Nokia Lumia 920 in producing a picture that was actually visible in low-light conditions was the Apple iPhone 5.

Now, Nokia has produced a quick video that compares the video capturing abilities of both the Nokia Lumia 920 and the Samsung Galaxy S III under low light conditions. At least it looks like the Samsung Galaxy S III. Unless you look at Samsung Galaxy S III and the Samsung Galaxy S 4 side by side and compare the screen sizes, it is just hard to tell them apart. Which is exactly what Nokia was counting on considering that this was released on the day that Sammy unwrapped its new flagship phone.

I think better compare with S4 instead of old S3.

Obviously an S3, judging by the number of sensors visible. They should show one with the s4 if they can.

There wouldn't be a big difference, Samsung pride themselves on their loads of sharpening software and higher megapixel on the S4, but it ain't as smart as a Nokia camera.

Until other manufacturers get a DEDICATED camera company supporting them, overtaking Nokia's camera dominance is very unlikely. (See, lens quality and sensor technology is very important).

No one can beat Pureview.. Only Sony has the ability to do so but it still need some improvements! NOKIA IS STILL THE KING IN PHOTOGRAPHY AND MAPS!

Nokia is already the best of making Windows Phones. So Android is a no no for Nokia.

so wat? ,even if Nokia makes the best windows phones... They can come up with an android phone in the near future.. M saying if they do..then we will have a great combination of The most popular os with top notch fit n finish,nokia reliability... why not? (From the customer's point f view it would be great)

I agree, Nokia can also make android smartphones and windows phones together, just like HTC.

LMAO Nokia has to deceive potential customers to get business. Not the first time they got caught lying about their camera, so pathetic
