I've seen the video of the S4 on the flying drone and personally feel the Lumia 928 video is way better and steady(even though it has a little jello-effect). But I would rather wait a bit longer before I buy a Windows phone coz the variety of apps is not even close to Android.

Nokia we are buying cellphone not camera. Don't think that by innovating the camera we will switch back to your product. My gosh! Lumia 928 is only comparable to Galaxy S2 and Galaxy S2 is even better than Lumia 928. Nokia is so clever. Just by little innovation, Nokia is selling their products on higher rates. Crazy!!!

Just to let you guys know, any camera or phone mounted on a drone without a gimble would make the same shaking effect no matter how good your image stabilization works.

Well I did not like It.!? the lens shaking makes the video moves like jello Nokia invented a floating lens technology but i this it fails to hit the target, for the last 3 years and with this war of cell phones between apple and android and struggling nokia, at last i moved to iphone 5 and really I found that ios is the best i tried to like android for the last 2 years but i failed to like android and so sadly nokia is moving in a wrong way, because microsoft also failed with windows 8..

B-)
