Less than meets the eye: A rant on perception

| June 13, 2013 | 70 Replies

  A couple of Lumia comparisons from NokNok. First up comparing the N8 against the Nokia Lumia 720. http://www.noknok.tv/2013/04/22/nokia-lumia-720-and-nokia-n8-photo-hands-on-comparison/ Followed by the Nokia Lumia 620 against the hyperbudget Nokia Lumia 520. http://www.noknok.tv/2013/04/23/nokia-lumia-520-nokia-lumia-620-photo-camera-hands-on/ The 520 does a respectable job, lacking really in just the LED flash (to help drive the price down).
