Nokia Lumia 920 wins Best Smartphone Camera test, Daylight and low light (And this only gets better for Nokia at MWC :) )
Winner – Nokia Lumia 920: Using only the automatic setting, it gets an accurate exposure and decent image in all shooting conditions. You can’t beat it.
Of course, it won low light.
In very dark conditions with no flash, the Lumia 920 takes the best photos. As you can see above, the Lumia’s optical image stabilization helps the camera achieve a passable photo even under the toughest circumstances. There’s no graininess, and the statue is more or less properly exposed despite the lack of light.
Winner: Lumia 920
Now this isn’t just low light, it’s overall conditions. I’m finding myself super pleased with the 920′s camera as I only ever have to snap a pic (no worries about settings). I especially love pictures that would otherwise have been blurry due to camera shake but aren’t.
Actually, guess who won Daylight?
In this test, we were looking for the camera that evenly exposed highlights and shadows throughout the image. We also wanted to make sure a camera could shoot during the day without catching lens flare.
The Lumia accomplishes both of these the best. The camera’s wide-angle lens provides a great field of view and it has no problem resolving the sun without creating an awful lens flare.
Winner: Lumia 920
Now we all know there’s going to be more PureView action at MWC. This is DEFINITELY something to be excited about. This is the product we were warned people would climb over each other to get. The 920 is awesome, but imagine what they could do with more time?
I’m most surprised where Z10 came.
