    This was meant to be the best phone camera, its disappointing that's its not especially after all the hype. The Verge will tear into this as they are very biased towards Apple's iPhone.

    This is why I never partake in hyping a product (pre release). Like I said in an earlier post this is just like the 900. The camera on that way hyped as amazing as well and while its a decent camera it is shunned because of high expectations. The iPhone has ALWAYS had a good camera. Phones now have more than caught up in most areas but it is an amazing camera on the 5 and phones alike (gs3, oneX anyone) They all have their strengths and weaknesses, I can confidently say no ones is going to out perform the 920 in lowlight but that's not all there is to the story. The 5 has an extremely well rounded camera and just because the 920 lacks the detail the 5 gives doesn't make it a lost cause. We can't have it all I guess.

    Well actually the reviewer was right, the iPhone5 photos are way better than the lumia 920 on regular conditions

    Except the issue with the 920 pictures appears to be software related. The iPhone 5 colors are washed out bad.

    Ouch! Pocket Lint's review is up now, and it's not so good.
    Nokia Lumia 920 review - Pocket-lint

    The good: wireless charging, camera, WP8 features like Kid's Corner and Rooms
    The bad: Heavy, big, bulky, and large
    Quick verdict: We had high hopes for the 920, and while individual elements are great we have come away bitterly disappointed with the overall package.

    Two of the biggest tech blogs posted almost totally positive reviews of the Phone ( only bashing the Apps and overall ecosystem, but rhat's already a cliche). The verge and engadget ibcluded full galleries of awesome looking photos and videos taken with the 920 and still e erywhere i look in the supposed wp community forums all i see is utter dissapointment and "Omg camera is terrible" i really think there's something wrong with wp fans...cmon please someone tell me what's more to expect from a smartphone camera? I am the only one thinking thy are absolutely great overall and the whole plethora of threads about dissapointing camera are just ridiculos

    It's just that it was advertised so highly... Yet iPhone 5 takes same quality photos, if not better. And it is a 1.5 month old phone.

    I think that's exactly it. The expectations were enormously high, perhaps too high. Image stabilization and a wide aperture are great features, but ultimately the most critical part of any digital camera is the sensor. (And the photographer.)

    I think one thing these reviewers forgot to mention was how crappy the vibration on the 920 still is since the 900...

    Nokia y u no fix!?

    Regarding the engadget review, people need to calm down. The review unit they had was running pre-release software and not final software. As expected, engadget didn't disappoint and purposely didn't make that clear in their review article.

    And whats also amazing is the iphone 5 was not included by engadget in the comparsion pictures with the Lumia 920 and the other devices. Probably they knew the iphone 5 would get trampled by the 920.

    If the iphone 5 was used in the comparison pictures and it got beat by the 920 , there was no way engadget could make the negative comment about the daylight shots on the 920.

    Engadget just like the verge cant be trusted when it comes to reviewing nokia phones. I have been down this road with them before with the Nokia N9 , N86 and N8. Its very well documented their biasness towards the iphone and against nokia. I got banned many times from engadget for pointing out certain things.

    Guys don't take that review seriously.

    That said, Engadget did show how Lumia 920 totally trumped every other phone out there in terms of video shooting due to the OIS and that sure was a legit review with both phones on the same "jig" at the same time side by side.

    In fact, when Engadget was just doing those videos, I was actually thinking that Engadget is probably a bit Nokia-biased or something, but on the other hand this article is whole different again.

    Perhaps this reviewer is a bit anti Nokia? Or just too pro-Apple?

    Actually expectations were set high by people in blogs who didn't really know anything about digital photography and started daydreaming that nokia is a magic factory that somehow managed to stick a DSLR into the sleek polycarbonate. Nokia didn't say that even in the overblown commercial rhetoric. What they said was generally " with a phone camera people like to shoot videos and take drunken party pictures, well here's the only phone camera that does those two things, and still takes normal daylight pictures." consider me sold. Two situations, two solutions, simple as that. When someone considers himself a tech bug, and goes to sites to rant one product and go crazy over another product, one should at least know where technology stands these days and what's possible and what not.
