    It is stated that with recent firmware upgrade Lumia 920 takes decent snaps in normal light condition. Now my question is, in comparision to iPhone 5 how good are daylight pics? I know that in low light it always outperformed iPhone 5

    I've read numerous threads about the improvement. So says there is a significant improvement, some says its exagguration. But there is no real comparision with iPhone 5S and Galaxy S3

    But doesn't the comparison of these three phones go well beyond the camera? Without using the iPhone 5 or S3, I'll go out on a limb to say both have good cameras. I know the 920 has a good camera.

    Would someone opt for an OS that was marginal simply because the camera is better. I just don't see many saying, "The OS sucks but the camera rocks!"

    I was put to shame yesterday by an S3. The picture (same picture) looked SOOOO much more brighter and cleaner on his phone than my 920. Everyone else around agreed.

    I was most embarrassed :(

    Fluorescent lighting is definitely a problem for the 920. It almost feels like the sun is shining down on the camera lens, thus causing a "glare" effect. I noticed that my sister's Iphone 5 doesn't exaggerate that lighting nearly as much. This is a picture of me at the mall. What you see above is only meant to be the sunlight coming through a large window. Mind you, it wasn't even bright that day. Pre-Portico btw.

    However, in terms of "real" colors, meaning how the picture color/quality wise looks compared to the real thing, I will say the 920 does a better job. You can only really tell if you're there in person to see the difference.

    They all beat the 920 in real life situations. About the only thing Nokia has going for it is low light. How often do you use your camera at night? I'm still waiting for update to get Nokia camera software off my phone so I can use during the other 90% of the time I use my camera, indoor and daytime photos. Camera was all hype to sell phones. Its no better than others and worse than some in real world situations.

    I'll be working a lot in low light tbh. Especially as I'm starting a new course soon so will be back at uni and will want a few nights out. Have you been to Bradford? The photos on my titan are dark on it. And on the Torch they were near enough unusable.

    Apparentlythe 920 doesn't render the picture as well on the camera. You need to compare the pics on a computer.

    Disappointing, looks like we have to wait for another firmware update. But that won't change my mind to switch to any other gadget

    It's definitely not the optics because Lumia 920 trumps any phone taking HD video imo.

    Here's a comparison between the L920 and iPhone 5 and to me the L920 looks a lot sharper, especially when I view it on my 64" Samsung HDTV.

    Next time he should try sending a skydrive link to open both photos on the same phone (texting compresses the **** out of pics) then they can compare using the same device since I too believe the image is not displayed as sharp as it really is, and unless you view it on the PC, it could be deceiving.

    Sorry to subject you guys to these awful daytime pictures from my 920. I know they are so bad I should probably have tagged them as NWS.

    I would say the indoor shots (as with most camera phones) are really where my phone struggles.

    Lol. Yes, he's being sarcastic. It seems like some people are trying to be Negative Nancy's and say that any pic taken by the Lumia 920 in good lighting comes out bad.

    When you think 'low light', don't make the mistake of thinking 'at night'
    Often times, indoor light is considered low light. In Canada, after 4pm is considered low light.
    What you can see with your eyes is not the same thing a camera sees.

    Swift enough to know camera from my Razr Max and 9810 have delivered far better and more consistent photos over the years than both 920s I've owned. Thank you for being such an a**.

    I found auto usually aren't the best at finding the right settings, just need to use the manual settings to set ISO/exposure and so on and it can produce nice pictures.

    Here's a good comparison for both photo and video between i5, L920 and S3 that I found on Youtube.

    Well done comparison althoug I don't know if this was done pre portico update:
