Lumia 920 (PR1.1) vs Nokia N8 vs Samsung Ativ S vs Nokia N9 – Camera Test

Here is another great article form AAS, comparing the camera performance of Nokia latest flagship Lumia 920 (PR 1.1) with Nokia N8, Nokia N9 and Samsung Ativ S in different lighting conditions.

First the original photo taken by the Nokia N8, then cropped version from all four devices:

Day Shot:

(From top left, going clockwise, Nokia N8, N9, Lumia 920 and Samsung ATIV S)

The above crop has plenty of detail and texture here to compare. According to AAS Nokia N8 shot wins followed by N9 and a detailed, but too heavily-sharpened photo from the Ativ S. The Lumia 920’s shot is disappointingly noisy and over-processed

Macro Shot:

(From top left, going clockwise, Nokia N8, N9, Lumia 920 and Samsung ATIV S)

Here again N8 wins with almost perfect colour and detail. The N9 shot is a bit noise and also the purple has become blue here. The Ativ S and Lumia 920 versions shows the true purple, plus their is over-sharpening on the Ativ S version and the slight softening in the Lumia 920 version.

Night Shot:

Aha, finally the night shot test. As expected Lumia 920 wins here with amazing bright image. Where N8 takes the second position with excellent representation of reality. The Ativ S result is very noisy, while the N9’s image is very disappointing.
