So two things are clear after this:
The 808 creates a whole new category.. non of the other smartphones even come close. Its kind of funny..
The HTC One X camera SUCKS compared to the rest.
Congrats Nokia.. 5 years of development pays off I guess. The cards are on the table now, lets see how the rest can respond, and how long it will take them to come even close to the 808.
Wow, I wasn't that far off with my inexperienced guessing.
I see that most people were spot on in linking the devices to the pics, while many were just unsure of E and F but agreed that they were the best.
So judging from the comments made, the ranking will be something like this?
1st & 2nd - Between 808 and Olympus
3rd - Nokia N8
4th & 5th - Between IPhone 4S and Samsung S3
Last- HTC One X
Can you do the same blind test in a low light environment ?
Thank you in advance.
On basis of photo quality alone, I guessed "E" and it turned out to be Nokia 808...
But one thing I was sure of: Sample C, the most inferior, would be HTC One X.
How right I was.
Like I thought.
808 has definitely the best detail. E and F are best. But im actually a little bit surprised that the 808 has better detail than the four thirds sensor, did you really capture right? Maybe the oversampling idea really rocks. B, C and D look overprocessed, too much. not natural anymore. C actually is for nothing, while B and D are not too bad, just a little bit less good than the N8. Anyway, you can clearly see the difference between smartphone cameras and real cameras, where the 808 plays...
AnonD-8295, 17 Jun 2012Nokia is running out of ideas ?? Who cares which camera takes the best picture. I am buying ... moreman! are you blind? dont you see it? they are testing the CAMERA quality. if youre not smart enough to SEE That. why dont you ask your HIGH END SMARTPHONE... it can probably tell you what does it mean!...
AnonD-8295, 17 Jun 2012Nokia is running out of ideas ?? Who cares which camera takes the best picture. I am buying ... morethere are more than 800 votes in this section and more than 1000 of comments in nokia pureview section. that means all these people care about pureview. you are the only one who does not care. so why dont you roam around somewhere else . no one is bothered here to know what you like or dont like.
Im sure the pureview is E and the olympus is F!
E = EASILY THE BEST = PUREVIEW!!!!
F looks like E with a bit of sharpening and contrast, but there is about the same level of detail.
In 3rd and 4th place, A and B are roughly similar in overall quality
C is a very clear loser.
One of these phones is matching an EVIL. Respect!
