Petrogel: ?? "If you doubled the number of megapixels on a camera’s sensor, you’d halve the amount of light that each pixel would have to measure, which means even more noise"
How come and the "more pixeled" (but the same pixel size) full frame cameras, outperform much better in low light conditions than those with APS-c sensors ??
Can't resist your bullshitology, lessons
KW Phua: Compare to other cheap PnS this IQ is best, but not perfect with yellow tined. Not as pocketable as PnS, not as fast as DSLR not as cheap as PnS. I know many people who buy expensive cameras and keep inside cabinet but use iPhone most of the time.
The 280grams of weight, the 28-100mm lens (with manual focus) and the 1inch sensor with the ability of producing raw files, makes it more pocketable (and portable) than a DSLR, better optical zoom (also faster) than any iPhone or phone camera, and you should check the IQ again cause it is better (in some cases) even compared to older micro 4/3 under low light conditions.
EXACT-LY !!! and in particular screen printing !!!
Yabokkie !!!!! you are a collateral damage, the comment wasn't for you, you're in between --a keyboard vendetta-- , now if you please let us CAP LOCK emphasize with our comments. By the way pixel size matters, the bigger the better.
There are also some who do not have an argument, but they comment just to satisfy their feeling of inferiority, Victor get a life.
Yabokkie, want it or not FF sensors deliver better IQ under any kind of light compared to undersized APS-C sensors, so the : "If you doubled the number of megapixels on a camera’s sensor, you’d halve the amount of light that each pixel would have to measure, which means even more noise", argument is not valid. あなたはそのを理解してない ?
Pixel size, pixel count, generation of sensor and cpu all make a difference but most of all the lens
Petrogel: Both Samsung S4 and iPhone 5 they seem to be equipped with more appropriate lenses, giving sharper images even at the corners, where lumia is the worst than competition.
Lumia's superiority is obvious only at high iso, even at 8mp the lens has serious light fall off at corners!.
Actually it is Nikon D800 is equipped with 36mp 4,88μm pixel size while Nikon D7000 has a 16,2 mp with 4,78μm pixel size,
Markol: A quote from the photographer who made the Grand Canyon pics:
"Nokia called my rep to see if I would be interested in doing an assignment that would showcase the capability of the phone," he told Imaging Resource. "I gotta say, I was little skeptical, but I got kids to feed so I said yes."
That say it all.
Of course he adds:"But over the course of the ten days with the Nokia, I became a convert."
I don't speak for anyone else but my self and of-course and i can recognize moire, Ben's printer can't !!!! read again psycho !!!
This is a great photo, a great portrait, i'll agree with johnbomb "One of the best photos I've seen in awhile". Congrats

Confident enough not to pay for.
Vlad4D: I would like to compare smartphones with real cameras. Why not add phones and cameras to same single database?
If the closest you can get to a real camera is your phone, then good for you, you won't be asking for more.
?? "If you doubled the number of megapixels on a camera’s sensor, you’d halve the amount of light that each pixel would have to measure, which means even more noise"
@Vlad4DYou mean, real cameras with real lenses taking real photos ? That would collapse peoples arguments flaunting the superiority of cell phones, it won't be good for the arguments.
Petrogel: "Focus is pixel-sharp, but details aren’t quite as precise as the version on the right."
The (on the globe crop picture ) cross purple stripping, of the American mainland, is not visible on the supposable more "detailed" right version !!
Too pity for my display then, moire it is !!!
vv50: 'Nokia has created a smartphone which not only matches the capabilities of many high-end cameras, but in most cases surpasses them. It simplifies creative photography.'
“This Nokia camera helps you capture the moment, which is the most important thing.”
there you go DSLR lovers, all this talk about image quality, the pro photographer thinks that's not the most important thing.
So those photographers till now (that Nokia "Convinced" them) weren't able to "capture the moment" ?
Sorry Jesper !! my display shows that this pattern has nothing to do with moire artifacts (if you'll enlarge it you'll see it) , is just a cross stripping indicating a different country.
@JD4X4 I did not noticed that both were taken with Olympus, got it now,
No it is not, it's a cross striping to define a different country on the globe, and that is why it's not visible on other shades of purple Olympus has almost 4 times bigger sensor (compared to the "huge" lumia's 1020 sensor) and a proper lens to gain more detail than any phone
