Laptop magazine has done a comparison between Lumia 1020 and SGS4 Zoom not only as a camera but as a smartphone as well. They have declared Lumia 1020 the winner with wins in 4 aspects including camera and especially mention its camera performance is heads and shoulders above that of SGS4 zoom’s.
After taking four of seven rounds, the Nokia Lumia 1020 comes out on top as the best camera phone in the land. Not only is the 1020′s design less obtrusive than the bulky Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom’s, but Lumia’s camera performance is head and shoulders above the Zoom’s, too. And with a battery that won’t leave you flat when you need it, the Nokia Lumia 1020 is a winner in our book.
Have a look at daylight and low-light comparison samples below and what the reviewer feels about the comparison.
Nokia went all out when it comes to the Lumia 1020′s ability to capture gorgeous photos. Its 6x optical zoom and 41-megapixel sensor allow users to see a heretofore unprecedented amount of detail in a photo taken using a smartphone camera. Unlike the Galaxy S4 Zoom, the Lumia 1020 was able to easily capture the minute details of our subject’s face – facial hair and all. Like previous Lumia cameras, the 1020 is especially adept at capturing photos in low-light conditions.
When we captured a photo of a young woman in a dimly light room with the Lumia’s flash off, we were easily able to make out the details in her face and the design of her blouse. Switching on the Lumia 1020′s xenon flash allowed us to uniformly light our entire subject, rather than just a portion of the scene.
