well i did it. Black iPhone 5. took a bunch of pics on the way home to test the flare. it's there in certain angles but i'm pretty sure I can live with it considering it's a far superior camera then the one in the windows phone.

WHAT?

THE

FUCK?

No.

Of course, the Nokia 808 PureView beats every other smartphone to the punch when it comes to low-light camera tests because the 808, which was released last year and runs on Symbian, has a whopping 41-megapixel sensor, meaning it has way more pixels to work with in low-light situations.

It uses something that attempts to be like oversampling by combining pixels (though not precisely like the 808, and it can’t since the sensor and pixel starting point is not the same). Whilst it is known that the low light optimised Nokia Lumia 920 slaughters iPhone 5, the Nokia 808 PureView gives the iPhone 5 a good kicking too.

The Lumia 920 has the PureView 8.7 megapixel camera. This camera uses the optics of Carl Zeiss and has floating lens tech, which allows 5 to 10 times more light than with any other handset. This means that your photos are crystal clear and bright along with being crisp. In recent tests against the iPhone 5, it beat the Apple phone in low light conditions.

From everything/where I've read (theverge, engadget, gizmodo etc), no one ever claimed the i5 camera was anywhere close to the nokia windows 8 camera (the new 920).

overreaction on my part

BUT

920 is "out" it's just not "out" yet, and widely regarded as having a killer camera - if that's what you want outta a phone primarily

- There was a time for a good two weeks when I would search for an app in the app store and all I got back was a blank screen. I couldn't download ANY new apps fora long time.
This is now happening to my girlfriends phone. Brutal.

really loving it so far. been using it pretty much non stop.

I like how light it is, when i use the lady's 4s it's like a paperweight in comparison.

no real bugs or problems so far. chrome browser app rocks.

some parts of the workflow infuriate me like it doesn't handle the same way, but I'm new. so that will go away with experience.

I especially don't like how you need to manually close every application after using or it will kill your battery. on the windows phone you can just hit back button a few times to kill running apps.

battery life is fine for me so far.

and wi fi is fine. it's slower but that's to be expected.

same performance as the windows phone was on wifi.

Add another to the list of gripes. iTunes Match has been a buggy mess. I thought I was doing it wrong the entire time but it's getting widespread publicity in the blogs now for being so shit.

Well...the 920 is only coming out on Rogers(which has zero coverage other than in Saskatoon, Regina) ...and I'm not particularly enthused at the prospect of buying it unlocked from some joint.

So it looks like I'll be sticking with Android. A nexus of some kind next year.

One thing I noticed after iOS6 unnecessarily input all my facebook contacts to my phone, my autocorrect in all applications spells my friends' more unusual names the proper way.
