I found this video posted online:
However, I noticed that the "Focus Assist Light" on the Lumia 920 was turned off, but on the Lumia 925 it was turned on. Does that make it an unfair comparison between the two?
Edit: The default setting of "Focus Assist Light" on the Lumia 920 is "ON" meaning it was deliberately switched off here. But it was left on for the Lumia 925. I understand that this light assists the camera in focusing in low-light conditions and that the camera does not capture the image when this light flashes, but nevertheless, I feel it should've been turned off on the Lumia 925 (or turned on on all devices) in the spirit of fairness.

According to the MNB guys (Jay) and his post from yesterday, the 925 was MUCH better than the 920 in low light...
He laments that his DSLR was not able to take properly focused photos of the results and that he wasnt allowed to take photos off the 925, but you can see the results for yourselves...
Its a wow moment for me...
Low light: Nokia Lumia 925 even better than Nokia Lumia 920, obliterates Samsung Galaxy S4 : My Nokia Blog

aah, now I see what's happening. According to Imaging on the Nokia Lumia 925 part two: under the hood – Nokia Conversations : the official Nokia blog the ISO on the 925 is able to go all the way upto 3200, compared to 800 on the Lumia 920. And I believe this capability is coming to 920 with the Nokia Amber update. After that, the 920 should take very similar photos :-)

i agree, similar photos, not same, as the 925 has that extra lens in it, which we will need to see what effect it makes....
fwiw, i asked a question of the author of the article, specifically asking about ISO 3200 coming to 920/928

I don't see the focus assist light as an unfair advantage. At the end of the day it's not the same as a flash and just gives the camera an idea on where to focus. Most high end cameras have it and it would be pointless to turn it off if it's already there.
