WHAT?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.
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).
