Nokia Lumia 920 vs iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S3 vs Note 2 – There Is No Competition In This Department

by Mihai Matei on December 7, 2012


When the Nokia Lumia 920 has been officially unveiled, the Finnish manufacturer showed the world a video depicting the Optical Image Stability capabilities of the smartphone’s on-board camera. However, as most of you probably already know, that particular video became a bit controversial shortly after release, simply because there have been good reasons to believe it was faked.

Nevertheless, Optical Image Stability does exist on the Lumia 920, and as we’ve seen before, it really does make a difference when recording videos. We’ve previously talked about a video comparison between the Lumia 920 and the Galaxy S3 where we’ve seen OIS in action, but today we’re going to add two more gadgets in the mix.

The guys over at BesteProduct have strapped all four gadgets mentioned above onto one pole and then fired up the video recording process. The person holding the smartphones then hopped on a skateboard and rode it on a paved road, downhill. Let’s take a look at the results.

This is the second time we get confirmation that Optical Image Stabilization on the Lumia 920 does make a difference when recording videos, regardless if you put it against the SGS3, the Galaxy Note 2 or the iPhone 5. The Lumia 920 comes out on top in terms of video and audio recording quality. HAAC does make a difference as well and if this particular video isn’t proof enough, then check the one where the HTC 8X and the Lumia 920 have been taken to a Deadmau5 concert, if you haven’t done so already (hit the link).


That being said, this is another definitive win for the Lumia 920 and we’re really starting to love this gadget even more. It has its downsides as well, but in all fairness, Nokia has packed so many features in its flagship phone that it’s difficult not to love it.

Any thoughts regarding the matter, and would you buy the Lumia 920 based on its video recording capabilities, or other features? Drop us a line and let us know.

Thanks Phone Arena for the heads-up regarding the Lumia 920 vs iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S3 vs Note 2 OIS video.
