GSM Arena: Nokia 808 PureView blind test: The sum of all pixels

| June 15, 2012 | 23 Replies

Here is a blind shootout from GSM Arena starring the Nokia 808 PureView.

It would be a little unfair to put the 38MP mode as it would be too obvious which one that is. Therefore we stick to PureView mode. The N8 is also there, set to 8mp.

There would be other conditions where the 808 would see itself distance itself from the pack (well with the N8). Low light without flash and low light with flash. The point of this is not to pick which one is the 808 but which one produced the best picture.

The contenders:

  • Nokia 808 PureView (8MP PureView mode)
  • HTC One X
  • iPhone 4S
  • Samsung Galaxy S III
  • Nokia N8 (downsampled from 12MP to 8MP)
  • Olympus E-PL2 interchangable lens, large sensor camera (downsampled from 12MP to 8MP)

Cheers anonymous for the tip
