The low light performance of the CM1 is very impressive for the smartphone world. At more than double the ISO of its competition it loses much less detail to noise reduction, though we do see the Nokia still has the advantage of having the highest resolution. Turn normalization off and evidence of noise reduction does become apparent, but remember that this is ISO 3200 instead of 800 at the highest for the competition. Having lower light capabilities is a definite plus for the CM1.
