THE WHOLE INDUSTRY REFUSES TO PRODUCE SOMETHING EQUAL TO THE 8... moreYeah, I know someone with a G5 and I just thought "almost as good as my old N8" - thankfully the G5 has OIS for low light. My Galaxy also takes photos almost as good as my old N8 - if I resize Samsung's pics to 5-8 megapixels so that I don't see too much of Samsung's processing. But I'm fine with it. At least the Samsung is faster and has HDR, better macro and panorama. Missing the Xenon flash, though, but my N8 is still working if I ever need it again.
On another note, Steve Litchfield just released a YouTube review of the HTC U11 and said the camera is almost as good as the Lumia 950 XL. Too bad about the rest of the phone.

As i mentioned earlier, my GF has s7 or s8, never bothered to ask as i don't like Android, but we have compared photos. They are highly comparable and 950/950XL processing is way more mature. No artifacts you can see in galaxy snaps because of their highly aggressive noise suppression and sharpening. Detail, same or even more. Of course, you CAN'T compare those Lumia cameras to 808 Pureview, but nowadays Galaxies, etc are well in reach.

My LG G5 resolves almost as good and no way near as clean as my SEVEN your old Nokia N8!
(yea it shoots better at night then the 8 ....)
Sonu4678, 04 Jul 2017I don't know much about Lumia phones probably because their camera wasn't anything extraordina... moreLoL. Old Lumia cameras was one of the best out there, in the true photogenic sense. Nothing could come even close to them Carl Zeiss lens or whatever, per pixel and tonal quality of the photos were incredible. In fact even today a Pure View and Lumia 1020 will take better shots at day time than Samsung or whatever. Samsung simply created cameras to attract customers, boosted up saturation, colours and stuffs, so that people will think WOW, these look good, same reason why TV companies keep their sets at highest possible contrast, colour and brightness on showrooms to attract customers.
You probably were not born when Nokia ruled, but that's OK. But when I read S8 has an outstanding camera I chuckle for like 10 seconds.
SpiritWolf, 04 Jul 2017So you don't know much about Lumia phones (cameras) but you know you can't compare them to now... moreI don't know much about Lumia phones probably because their camera wasn't anything extraordinary and that's why no one talks about them. I haven't heard any of the mainstream reviewers compare other phone's camera with theirs. The guy i replied to claimed that Lumia's camera is way better than S8's and that's just outrageous as S8 has one of the best camera currently available in the market.
Sonu4678, 03 Jul 2017I don't rely on DxO either. Their rating is weird, they gave htc 10 & U11 highest mark. Wh... moreSo you don't know much about Lumia phones (cameras) but you know you can't compare them to nowadays flagships? Hater OR fanboy detected.
Nokia12, 03 Jul 2017My reasons for comparison with galaxy J3 2017 1) Historically the low end j3/j2 phones hav... moreBro They Will Not Launch Under 10k J3 2017...... Already Galaxy J3Pro Super Amoled Available U Can Get Get @8k 124$..... Nokia 3 Already Hit In India..... Go To Mobiles Market N Ask About Nokia 3310 N Nokia 3 They Will Tell U How Peoples Every Day Coming For Nokia :)
And like I mentioned before I don't like saying this as a Nokia fan but unfortunately J3 2017 is much better than Nokia 3
---extraordinary battery life due to 14nm expect 90h
--- better cameras with selfie flash
--- faster gpu because of 2 mali cores
Nokia 3 has some positives like "stronger" and better looking design , stock android that will get updated to 8.0 and extra sensors like nfc, compass gyro.. but in front of positives of j3 .. j3 wins unfortunately..i was hoping Nokia 3 selfie 8 mp auto focus camera to beat all the competitors but it was pretty average unfortunately..
Indian, 02 Jul 2017Galaxy J3 2017 Price 220 Euro Which Is Higher Than Nokia 3....Nokia 3 130 Euro Phone.... U sho... moreMy reasons for comparison with galaxy J3 2017
1) Historically the low end j3/j2 phones have launched at around same price range as Nokia 3 price.. J3 2016 was launched for rs 9000 while j2 was launched at rs 9750 in india.. so it is reasonable to expect launch price of same newer model to be in same ballpark
2) aren't there some European countries where phone prices are very expensive in euros compared to some Global/Indian prices ?
3) galaxy j3 2017 price is mentioned as 169 euros in many places Google it.. .. and Nokia 3 has been launched for 159 euros in Italy.. while it is available on clove UK for 149 pounds that is 169 euros...
So I don't think Samsung will launch j3 2017 for more than rs10,000 in India.. Nokia 3 is rs 9,500
4) galaxy j5 prime is exactly same as galaxy j3 2017 apart from looks .. that was launched almost 1 year ago for 230 euros .. which is now available for 170 euros or so.. you think Samsung will launch same specs at more price now on a low end j model
I wish they would use virtual keys, like LG, like Sony, like Samsung, etc. I hate physical touch buttons, especially these one's, looks like some ultra cheap chinese buttons.
Virtual buttons rulez.
Bottom line: HMD Nokia is like a poor chinese copy of a Samsung.
IamDisappoint, 03 Jul 2017So the phone that's been subject to endless delays gets released with a half-baked UI that stu... moreYou have Stock Android Nougat to blame for that.. Other manufacturers modify and optimises Android to achieve the maximum performance given the platform.. This here is just showing how the stock Android 7.0 is NOT optimised for entry level quad core chipset
MdN8, 03 Jul 2017I know the Lumia wasn't popular and it's not really relevant nowadays the way Windows Phone is... moreVerge has a reputation for giving biased reviews so generally i stay away from them. For camera & audio, i prefer Juan Bagnell from Pocketnow and Erica Griffin & Mr. Mobile for general review.
P, 02 Jul 2017I want to buy Nokia 3 but I confused plz suggest buy or not....if u want to purchase even after seeing this review only god can save u. Go with snapdragon 430 above chipset smartphone at lease u can do browsing & mail checks. & play lite games.
Again HMD doing same mistakes as original nokia. when people are showing much anxiety towards nokia brand initially u could have released at least snapdragon 430 powered smartphone. Nokia having nice brand image in grass roots & village people. for them u r sending mediatek version & selling phones with shop keeper commissions. may be u can earn some bucks but will lose credibility.
Sonu4678, 03 Jul 2017I don't rely on DxO either. Their rating is weird, they gave htc 10 & U11 highest mark. Wh... moreI know the Lumia wasn't popular and it's not really relevant nowadays the way Windows Phone is going. But hey, at least the camera was great, the Nokia camera engineers didn't disappoint. As for tech news, I've been around for more than 10 years (just magazines before that) and this site is a benchmark, but I follow a few tech sites that aren't just about phones. For cameras alone, SmartCamClub is fun - right now on the front page: "Comparing three large sensor shooters: Huawei P10 Plus vs Kodak Ektra vs Lumia 950 XL" so it's still relevant at least for the camera.
YouTube is good for a quick fix, but check out some other sites like Ars Technica, The Verge or DPReview, just to name a few. Of course, if you have the time for that. ;-)
As for DxO, yeah, they do laboratory tests in controlled conditions. But it says nothing about how ready the camera is to deal with surprises and everyday life. I sort of prefer someone taking a bunch of phones somewhere out in the wild and taking photos of the same scene and then posting them all.
