Nokia Lumia 1020 VS. Nokia 808 PureView: More Than Meets The Eye!

Hello MNB’ers!!!

First, I hope everyone is having a great day. Second….I made it back to the AT&T store and spent a little more time with the 1020…and…I have about 60+ comparison photos and about 10 videos to share. I won’t upload them all here so please see my Flickr page for the original 5MP photos and my YouTube page for the comparison videos! After taking so many pictures and videos, I can honestly say without a doubt, the Lumia 1020 is the more enjoyable of the 2 as when it comes to the act of taking photos. Now, I am not talking about diving into settings, specifications and all that, I am simply talking about POINTING THE PHONE AND TAKING A PICTURE. Please consider the environment that I was in and the limited time (roughly 2 hours…time to Bluetooth photos and videos took up a lot of time).

PLEASE take a look at the full-sized images and the videos at their highest resolution. There are advantages and disadvantages to both devices but it is up to you to decide what works best for you.

NOTE: Click on the cropped comparison to view a larger photo to see the details. No conspiracy here, no bias, just untouched photos, automatic settings, all tripod, 100% crops.

Enough of my ugly mug, on to a few video comparisons! Please be sure to watch in the highest resolution possible, preferably side by side/split screen or both comparison videos playing at the same time.

Special OIS Video Request:

Reader Yihang asked for a handheld 1020 video that demonstrates the OIS in action. I had NO INTENTION of uploading this video to YouTube as it was from my FIRST time shooting a video on the 1020 on my first visit to AT&T for my original Lumia 1020 Hands-On. In the video, when I say “no other phone but THIS phone”… I am talking about the 808 when referencing Lossless Zoom. So bear with me, this video isn’t that great, it is all tilted as I was talking more than I was looking through the viewfinder and I never planned to use the video for anything. This is the only handheld video from the 1020 that I have but it should give an indication on how the 1020s 2nd generation OIS can stabilize a video even when you are not paying attention to what you are filming. 🙂

Please keep in mind that this comparison is NOT a scientific, lab controlled comparison. My goal was to show the type of photos that an average consumer will take, simply pointing and shooting with one MAJOR difference…..99% of the photos were taken with both phones on a tripod. The only photos that were not taken on a tripod were the ones where the N8 was on the tripod (on my Flickr page). Those were handheld to the best of my ability but not entirely with the same framing. The average consumer may not have a tripod so the 808 pictures may come out blurrier in their case due to the lack of OIS. I used the mini tripod to try to get as controlled and as accurate comparison as possible. Please forgive the barren and unexciting subjects in the photos…there is only so much to see when confined to a limited area around a secured desk. Feel free to download and analyze the original photos and I look forward to what you, our dear readers, have to say.

As always, and the MNB team means it, thank you for choosing MyNokiaBlog,

P.S. Thank you AT&T reps, for allowing a second hands on and an unusual amount of time with a device that is not yet on sale. I also want to sincerely thank my wife. She has been patient with me, putting up with me getting home late from the AT&T store, missing dinner and being on the computer into the midnight hour. Thank you hun…I will upgrade your 920 to a 1020 as soon as I can! 🙂
