Raw concert footage demonstrates once again the audio recording might of the Nokia Lumia 920

Raw concert footage demonstrates once again the audio recording might of the Nokia Lumia 920
We already got one brief video recording from an indoor concert with the Lumia 920, but now we got three more, and the first one is from a death metal band performance, pretty far away from the stage.

While the Dethklok recording itself is digitally zoomed, meaning quite a diminished quality in general, the audio is what impresses in all cases, as it captures the both the low-range and the high pitches, unlike most phones out there.

This is due to the tri-microphone HAAC setup of Nokia's patented Rich Audio Recording technology that can go all the way up to 140dB without noticeable distortion, but dive deep in the bass region as well. Check it out in the two videos below.

I must say that is really impressive considering how loud concerts are and how distorted the audio is on a lot of concert recordings.

I thought the video recorded was captured from a camcorder, looks like the lumia 920 proves itself once again!

Very impressive, I have no doubt that if 920 ran JB it would be a smash hit.

Android lags as hell! My roomie just bought that 'Dual core 1.5GHz' so called 'Powerful' device, and guess what, after installing 10-15 popular apps it's lagging as hell. Waste of time, even a flashlight app takes 5-10 secs to load. Crap literally.

every os will experience lag if your a heavy user, its just android fanboys dont want to accept this but instead slag off other os's for problems there precious android also experiences if android was as good as they make it out there would be no need to update. but i think the android fanboys are just all hurt nokia didnt go android. so now they have to say how wp8 is crap because in some way they think it will make nokia go android pathetic isnt the word anymore its beyond that

Awesome sound! Still this can be better. Nokia has provided rich recording to the 920, but only mono. While the 808 sports stereo. For an idea how crisp the recording is, you can see any vid by 'generalthedestroyer'. I'm waiting for next gen Lumias with stereo recording. Correct me if I'm wrong.

THIS (tri-microphone HAAC setup of Nokia's patented Rich Audio Recording technology) is a real patent, not turn page animation or rectangles with round corners, learn Apple! This shows once again that Nokia makes phones that are exceptional, way to go Nokia! My next phone will be one of the Lumia family.

No one could argue that Nokia phone's cameras are just awesome. But I really wish they make Android devices as well :/ I just can't get used W8 OS

Pretty good stuff... I generally try not to record during concerts and enjoy them. For the people that really want to capture their favorite song (to replay many times afterwards), great for them.

Is the same audio recording features available on the 820?

Yeah. Only the cam unit is inferior to 920.
