Steve Litchfield compares the two heavy hitters in imaging right now, the Nokia 808 PureView and the Nokia Lumia 920 with the PR1.1 update that includes some imaging improvements.

The 808 PureView is still of course the unabashed winner in 6 out of 8 tests and Steve likens it to coming second to Usain Bolt. You might still be better compared to many other smartphones, except of course the incredible Nokia 808 PureView. The images on the 920 do look great, but when you zoom in and inspect pixel for pixel, the quality from the 808 is just astonishing. It shocks me still, to this day when I zoom in to picture perfect images from my 808. It’s also a jaw dropper moment for folks that read the 41mp label, especially for those that think that’s useless on a phone until they see themselves holding a menu, me taking a picture and being able to later zoom in to the naked-eye unreadable fineprint.

I do wonder sometimes when Nokia will bother to bring Xenon to WP Lumia. Even that on its own would be markedly better for low light close up people pics. Or even N8 grade imaging to WP. Make a set of slim WPs, but give users a choice if they want something fatter because it’s worth the bulk.

Here’s to PureView V3 😀
