In this video, PocketNow compares the iPhone 4S, the SGSIII, the Nokia 808 PureView and HTC OneX.
Whilst the 808 has already been pronounced in reviews as heads above all the competition for both videos and stills (including blind shoot outs against dedicated cameras to reduce/remove brand bias), it’s still interesting to see reactions from the public.
Looking at the comments, you can see them crowning the SGSIII. Note that the 808′s audio is being used for all the samples. A little unfair given how relatively s**t the sound is from the competing devices.
What they’re loving about the SGSIII seems to be the obnoxious colours. (Note we’re just talking about video quality here, not the rest of the device, which, credit where credit is due, SGSIII is a lovely smartphone)
HTC’s come a long way but looks terrible in comparison. It’s amazing that some of their ads focus on the camera when it’s not all that. In contrast, the best camera phone in the world and where are Nokia’s adverts? No where. Because Nokia doesn’t advertise things they’re good at.
