The Hurricane: Nokia Lumia 928 vs Galaxy S III vs iPhone 5 camera shootout promo video

The Hurricane: Nokia Lumia 928 vs Galaxy S III vs iPhone 5 camera shootout promo video

The Nokia Lumia 928 had the strangest officializing in recent memory, when a double-page Vanity Fair ad touting the handset appeared without any official introduction. Now it has its own section on the Nokia US website, with pictures of the black and white version, yet no press release to speak of, just teasers.

Nokia, however, is expanding on the hush-hush promos, this time releasing a video that compares the 8.7 MP camera module in the 928, bearing the optical image stabilization tech of the 920, against Apple's finest and Samsung's hero of yesteryear, the Galaxy S III

Needless to say, they wax poetic about the better color saturation (which if you aren't a photography geek you'd love in general better than realistic colors), the low-light scenarios, and, yes, the OIS tech. Have a look at the head-on promo below.

As long as this is not a dslr, I'm not surprised here either. Good work from Nokia's imaging as always. Now, time to show that their phone is not only about the camera.

I have to say, image quality can be anyone's opinions, but video capture (and the audio that goes with it) is beyond the competition. Less noise, more stable, better at night.

Nokia had to pick last years flagships what about the HTC one or the Samsung galaxy s4, Nokia are just chickens just trying there best to impress the consumers although the design is great it kinda looks like the xperia z. Just saying.

What's wrong with improving something and moving along? This isn't a flagship...never meant to be. Samsung has been producing lots of plus' and minis...how would you explain that? It's not significantly better than the other.

The Galaxy S4 and Xperia Z does not even have real Optical Image Stabilization! Plus multiple websites PA included already stated that the 920's OIS works better then the HTC One

Reviews says that Samsung S4 has poorer video quality than S3 (but probably fixed in a month or two with better video algorithm/software update)

Several reviews of the Samsung S4 says that it has poorer video quality than the S3 (but probably fixed in a month or two with a software update).

that was low-light and OIS test..... Nokia has far better technology in both the area compared to its competitors... if they use S4 and One the result will be same ..may be even worse with S4

25. Dastrix unregistered

It looks more like the S4 was afraid!

If only Nokia is running Android I will never consider buying other brands.

It's true. I have been a Nokia user since 1997. ALL my phones were Nokia. I'm using Sony at the moment while waiting for Nokia to run Android. In my opinion the dumbest move they did is running a WP OS.
