In case you’re interested in the oh so complicated details of exactly how the 920 gets so much bang for it’s 8.7 Bucks check out the whitepaper that Nokia published on the matter, by Mr. Damian himself of course. The paper starts out by recapping on the original Pureview “pro” the 808, then explains how they carried on with the new revamped slimmer pureview-

Once again Nokia and Damian reinforce that More is not always better when it comes to pixels, that is if you’re using them wrong (Cough cough titan 2 cough)

You may have seen that despite the super high resolution sensor of the Nokia 808

technologies are combined, the improvements add up, and finally we have the results in
our hand
