Over at Engadget.com, editor Zach Honig compiled a very interesting set of photograph samples taken using a variety of smartphones. In the test, the iPhone 5 was pitted against the Nokia Lumia 920 and PureView 808, as well as the One X and Galaxy SIII. The aim of the test was to see which performed best in lowlight situations.
When the iPhone 5 was launched, Apple’s chiefs made it clear that the new camera sensor was great in lowlight conditions. Sadly, Nokia beat Cupertino to the punch with that one when they launched the Lumia 920 a little while before. Engadget’s photos seem to confirm just as much. Check out the images below:
It’s no surprise really that the two Nokia handsets win this challenge hands down. They clearly have the best optics around built-in. And, Apple deciding to go smaller and slimmer didn’t help Apple’s cause. That said, when it comes to its main competition in the smartphone market right now, the iPhone easily outshines its Android rivals in lowlight test. I guess we’ll have to wait a few months to see if Samsung and HTC have a trick up their sleeves.
