These are just simple expectations people are having coming from great camera phones like the iPhone 4S and up and android devices like the s3, note 2 and one x's. It just falls short to those guys that's all a lot of people like myself are comparing the 920 to phones like them. What was your last phone before the 920 TK? Sorry but I am not expecting the 920 to shoot like a Nikon D4 but at least on par or better as they claimed.

I'm just going to put a link to this my skydrive which I've posted before, but I've added more daylight photos that weren't just of sunsets and sunrises. Many of these were true snapshots, no adjustments made or post-processed.
Shooting pictures can be hit and miss on every camera. I'm not entirely sure why you're not getting the results you want, honestly.

Just saying my 808 blows them all out of the water. Being the owner of both the 808 and NL920. - I'll say the softness in daylight isn't a deal breaker, because the night pictures rival just about everything below dslr. I have to work out the right settings and get a tripod out to compete with my 808. And as stated earlier. My 808 smokes the iPhone 5 and GS 3 cameras without even trying

Its consistency in daylight photographs is equally matched with its inconsistency at night time...
Just from a hardware perspective, the sensor and the optics on the 808 alone are thicker than the gs3/ip5/920, there is one extra GPU which is built into the camera module itself with one single purpose.. image processing, you have a Xenon flash with not one, but two capacitors, and we have a mechanical shutter. So just from that perspective alone.. nothing else on the market has the "means" to even compete.
Then we have all the work Nokia did on the software side to make it all function properly...
If you think about in terms of size vs. image quality ratio, the 808 is the only device (smartphone or a dedicated camera) that can offer you that kind of quality from such a compact system.. non of the P&S even come close from that perspective. Its a pretty substantial engineering breakthrough... one of those that don't come along very often in the mobile phone industry.
If any other company had this technology at their disposal, they would have proclaimed themselves as the best imaging company in the world, there will be a VAST marketing campaign behind it, and they will be trying their best to sell it. Nokia is doing the exact opposite... just because everything else is going so well for them I guess...
Like..if Apple had it.. they will parade around the globe, and within 2 years they will crush the point and shoot market..

Aldiggi: You are correct on your opinion and I am still confused why many people in this forum still do not admit the weakness of 920's camera. You always talked about the landscape softness issues but people here always show you some close-up images which are not the problem we are considering. Not to say their pictures has the obvious white balace issue.
Though its camera is good, it is still far behind what it shoud reach. The camera's firmware definitely has the problem (the alogrithm converting binary data to image). Currently I can use Cameraeasy app to get sharper image (not sharpened by an alogrithm but reasonably using the sensor data). As a consumer I really wish Nokia is still working on their camera firmware to really improve the quality of image.
For those who still think lumia920 can get better pictures than other cell phones, I recommend you go to this website (Photo Compare Tool - GSMArena.com) and put down the prejudice to compare the image quality from different phones. Then you will know why many N8 and iphone5 users are not happier with 920.

Meh, my Lumia beats the iPhone 5 based of the video camera alone, not even mentioning the low light voodoo. But yes, in daylight, its easier to use the iPhone 5as a p&s and take good pictures. But that's the only field where I see it as compedetive vs the Lumia... But id take the iPhone 5 over the GS3
