Whilst it’s not a surprise for us that the Nokia Lumia 1020 is so good at photos, especially given it’s a photo centric smartphone and the iPhone 5S isn’t, that’s not what Apple’s marketing, keynote and hoard of fans would have you believe. It’s not about more MP anymore apparently (with claims MP count is misleading…ooh says those where the reality distortion field is all about misleading), but bigger sensors and bigger pixels.

So every little glimmer of the Nokia showing Apple what’s what is worth shouting about.

This story comes by way of Business Insider who looks at Robert Scoble’s comparisons between the 1020 and 5s.

Apple touts some special prowess of their new LED flash but even the 925 with its latest generation LED can’t match Xenon for lighting up people. You know, things that move.

Note the comparisons look at the 5MP 1020 samples versus the 8mp iPhone ones. There’d of course be a crazy amount of extra detail if we had the 34/38mp shots.

Perhaps the white balance/saturation needs some shifting.

Again, the iPhone 5S is a good camera phone and can take great pictures. It’s just that the 1020 is a lot better and there are even more extreme situations I often encounter when taking similar pictures that I’d know the 1020 could/should excel on.

Business insider notes preference for iOS over WP, especially as it has more apps including the most important photo app, Instagram (fortunately, I have a handful of Instagram lumia apps able to post to instagram, browse, comment, like etc, etc :/).

Cheers  zxv for the tip.
