808 PureView vs iPhone 5 low-light and daylight photo shootout. Didn’t we know the results already.

Gizmodo has done shootout of iPhone 5 with many devices including 808 PureView and as always happens, they have to say this in the conclusion.

But if you’re serious about good-looking memories, you should keep a point-and-shoot around. We’re dreaming someday Apple will adopt a camera as good as the 808 PureView or the Canon S100. Sigh, someday.

So, now coming to the shootout between 808 PureView and iPhone 5. There are two tests done, one in day-light other in low-light conditions. We will quote Gizmodo’s comment below each test result, so that you can understand how impressed they are with mighty 808 PureView.

Low-light test results:

Gizmodo says,” Nobody’s ever going to buy an Nokia 808 PureView in the US, but boy does the 41-megapixel 1/1.2-inch sensor on its camera deliver. In the camera’s low-light setting, it doesn’t shoot at full resolution, and instead uses the extra photodiodes on the sensor to help reduce noise. The result is this lovely sharp image.”

Though, we don’t agree with “who will buy in US” comment as lots have already done that, even when it is sold unlocked.

Daylight test results:

Gizmodo says, “And the comparison in the dark doesn’t begin to tell the story during the day. This is what the PureView’s 41-megapixels can do. Hopefully we’ll see this badass camera in a good domestic smartphone sometime soon.”

    Nokia killed Wellness Diary for Symbian recently, saying they want to focus on WP. Is clear Nokia doesn’t want to support Symbian anymore. How long is taking for the release of FP2? When was the last updated for devices like the N8? The camera is great but the photo editor is so poor, we’ve asked for improvements but nothing yet. Did you try the frames or the crop option on the 808? Most of us just edited the pictures ‘outside’ the phone or at least published them with minor adjustment. Nokia killed this device before its time and is a shame.

      Photo edit options on 808 PureView are far better than those available on any of the smartphone.

      FP2 was released but pulled and will be available soon. N8 has been just been refreshed with Belle refresh :P. And mind you, both are big updates.

      But I do agree that they should have done more for promoting the amazing devices that 808 is. Just wishing, we could have been in parallel universe with Symbian still the leader and 808 the Flagship.

    What the hell? They consider that 808 isn’t a good smartphone? I don’t think so and I supose that lot of people think the same as me, that 808 is a powerful device (apart from camera) with lot of functions

    • As understood by me, by “domestic” they meant some camera smartphone with carrier supported subidized prices, which is the norm in US market. Currently 808 PureView is sold unlocked at even a higher price than SGS III :P.
