Nokia has just announced their new flagship phone, the Lumia 920, we’ve put it up against Samsung’s crowning jewel the Galaxy S3.  The two phones are close in size the S3 boasting a 4.8″ display and the 920 a 4.5″, although Nokia’s device does come with a Pure Motion HD+ Plus screen with ‘better than HD resolution’.

Nokia Lumia 920 VS Samsung Galaxy S3 – Video

The Nokia Lumia 920 packs an impressive 1280×768 pixels into its 4.5in IPS LCD screen, besting the Samsung Galaxy S3 in the ppi department.

The two devices obviously are sporting totally different operating systems the S3 Android 4.0 and the 920 Windows Phone 8. We’ll have to wait and see how the two stack up when the S3 gets Jelly Bean and when Windows Phone 8 comes out for review.

Under the hood, the Samsung Galaxy S3 has a 1.4GHz Quad-core Exynos processor while the Nokia Lumia 920 sports a Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 1.5GHz dual-core processor.  So the S3 should take it on this one.

We’ve got our hands on video here putting the two phones head to head, we even snap a few photos but clearly Nokia’s PureView is an industry leader.

    If you compare cameras please make sure the data is comparable. Sensor resolution never made image quality. To measure the maximum resolution you should use test charts in very bright conditions.

    Even the comparison of S3 and Nokia under the same conditions does not make sense if you don’t say anything at least about the shutter speed. You can not compare the automatic mode under difficult conditions with high dynamic and judge about the hardware. Probabely Samsung wanted the night shots to have perfectly clear lights.

      Automatic mode is for most users…. Enthusiasts or professionals do not use mobile phones for photography.

      hence the Nokia’s imaging capability is more towards photography with more control over the settings and better optical hardware.

      First; for comparison, you choose those settings which are offered by the device at lower level.

      Second; there are no details provided for the above comparison and only the shots were evaluated from both cameras to tell which were better. There was no need to talk about shutter speed or aperture or ISO or any thing else. You were just presented the shots taken in the same lightening conditions which were good to be compared.

      Third; The optical hardware is ACTUALLY better in Lumia 920 (OIS, larger aperture, carl zeiss, etc) than Galaxy SIII or any other smartphone, that’s why the hype is more towards to be true.

    The effect of “pureview technology” looks like the HDR mode on the S3 camera for me.
    Photos taken with the S3 at low light conditions in HDR mode should be pretty close to the quality shown on the Lumia.

      That’s a good point, I can’t wait to see some detailed comparisons
