    Lumia 920. You don't expect iPhone 5 to be better coming to a WP forum, do you?

    Aside from the comment up there ^^^^ about asking on a WP forum - I think the 920 cam is genuinely superior to the iphone5 cam, and especially with the pro-cam app it really does take fantastic images.

    LOL!

    The Lumia 920 pre-Amber is still better than the iPhone 5 cam. BY A LONG SHOT.

    Pre Amber 920 mopped the floor with the 5, Post-Amber makes it worse. The 5S is a different story and honestly, we lose some ground there but thats a given when the 1020 is the new flagship and that beats the crap out of the market yet again.

    I personally think the Lumia 920 pre-Amber still takes the cake from the iPhone 5S. My gf currently upgraded to that and her photos come out dull. It lacks color and if you start to zoom, its all pixalated. It's also not as detailed in low light conditions. I got to hand to Nokia, they made a great camera phone. Now the support for this phone is a different story but I dont want to open up that can of worms.

    Unless you're rockin' a 1020 all of the flagship phones are pretty much the same. I'm tired of everyone saying this ones so much better etc. Side by side pics are all pretty close. It's the skill of the person taking the shot that makes the difference.

    ^^^^THIS^^^^ I've said to friends of mine before all over on Facebook. Just because you have a really good camera does NOT make you a good photographer. I used to be in a character costume at a popular theme park, and I've seen all kinds of cameras/camera phones. If you would just look at some people with great cameras and devices, you'd see how bad they are. I mean, So many people don't even know about the half shutter focus or how about the idiots at sporting events and concerts that take photos with their flash on in the dark when the subject is more than 10' away? It's ridiculous.

    Sorry for the rant, but this statement was one of the most dead on statements I've seen in a while when it comes to camera phones and quality. I used to work for Olympus Digital and I got really good at taking photos to the point where you give me a crappy camera, and I can take decent photos. Such a great and accurate post!!

    It's true that the 1020 is better than all others (unless you're a myopic iFan), but I do believe the 920 is noticeably better than anything the iPhone has ever coughed up.

    The best advice I can give is to take a photo on both devices and view them on a computer to compare.

    Who have both phone, would you shoot same object at same distance, same fokus area, zoom in at 100%
    Then post it here

    this is funny...
    it is NOT all down to the person taking the photograph, because if all I want is a picture of a cup of coffee on my desk, then the 5mp camera on my surface is going to produce a significantly poorer output that the 8.7mp on the 920, which will be significantly poorer than my 18mp canon 7D.
    Yes, I've deliberately gone to extremes, but I find it amusing how people say they're all the same, it's all down to the user - you just cannot make that definitive statement - it's a combination of user and tools.

    Now, if you are looking for composition and subjects, then of course the persons skills do come into it, but if the same person takes 2 photo's, 1 with each phone then the question IS about the better camera.
    There are dozens of comparison pics out there, the 920 camera is certainly the better camera, pre and post amber.

    No what actually is funny would be the number of different web sites saying the s4 is the best, the iphone 5 is the best, the htc one is the best or the lumia 920\925 is the best. There is no correct answer. A large number of people say the 920 camera sucks after the amber update. It's a lengthy thread in this forum.

    A large number of people say they've got battery issues too - but certainly for me, this is not the case.

    Guess everyone is different right? ;)

    Ok...here is my opinion. The iPhone 5 and Lumia 920 are pretty comparable in image quality from everything I've seen. Low light is definitely in the Lumia's favor. I think you would have a hard time telling which is which. BUT I will say that there are more features and options to the Lumia camera. OIS, true manual focus and manual settings, this is what makes a Nokia camera what they are. I'm sure other phones might start doing the same, but between those 2 phones Lumia provides much more flexibility and adjustment than the iPhone 5 for roughly the same image quality.

    Some web searching should dig up some good side by side comparisons. Also, simply looking at the pictures created by both, not necessarily of the same image can help too. For that, I went to Flickr and used the phone names as the search term to find pictures taken with those phones. That was just an evaluation of whether or not I liked the image quality by itself, not as a matter of comparison.

    I ended up with a 920, so you can see which way I lean. The only phone that I would consider trading it for is a 1020, period.

    Ok, let's be fair. Yes, the 920 camera performs better in low light with less noise. But for daytime pictures, I'd say they are very much tied.

    I personally think the ONLY place 920 suffers in terms of image quality is when it comes to color and white balance. Especially with shots taken indoors. They tend to get a blue tinge to them. Iphones are very very accurate with color. Also the iphone has coninuous autofocuing meaning you can take pictures faster.

    So I'll summarize by saying it's easy to take a good pic with the iphone 5, but with some effort and manual settings, you can take a GREAT picture with a lumia 920

    having owned both, i would say that the iphone camera is just hands down faster at taking snapshots, but if you want an in-depth well set up shot that you wanna remember for years to come then the lumia 920 is better in every sense in regards to the hardware of the camera itself.

    Depends on your taste :d, the 5S is an improvement over the 5 in the camera department, night shots are acceptable, not great, but good. In the daylight you cannot see too many differences, in the dark it is still the best, personally I will buy the 920 in a couple of months because of its OIS and and HAAC microphones.
    Btw, if you are a complete useless banana at taking photos and only need them for Facebook or such I recommend the 5, it's a nice phone but not my style. With the 920 you need to fiddle with the settings but when you are done you will take a beautiful photo.
    Only noticed now that you wrote vs iphone 5.... I talked about 5s ...... The 5 has worse night performance.
    In the end they're both capable but it depends on who uses them.
    Here you can find lots of samples:

    Flickr: Camera Finder: Apple: iPhone 5

    Yea, with regards to 5s, it's probably better in daylight shots now than 920. But the sample night time images I've seen are still not as good as 920.

    Interesting. The 920 looks better to me. It is noisier but has more detail.

    The iPhone is doing some smoothing which drops noise out but makes things pasty. Playing in Paint.Net and if you sharpen and de-noise the Nokia image, it becomes similar to the iPhone - i.e. less detailed but less noise. I'd say Apple have some algorithms running that manipulate the photo. I prefer more detail in the first place which you can blur if you like.
