Nokia has sought to address the shortcomings and limitations of the Windows Phone platform by packing immensely good cameras into its high-end devices, and the fact that the Lumia 920’s snapper is still widely considered the best in the business is a testament to that fact. Nokia’s so-called ‘PureView’ technology with OIS is back for another round in the upcoming Lumia 928 handset, which looks a modest refresh on the current flagship, and to show you just how good the 928’s shooter is, Nokia has put together a little comparison video pitting the camera against that of the Samsung Galaxy S III and Apple’s iPhone 5 in low lighting conditions.

Although things have been somewhat quiet from Nokia and Windows Phone 8 in light of the upcoming smartphone releases from Samsung and HTC, the camera of the Finnish company’s Lumia 920 is still considered among the best in the business. Conversely, the Samsung Galaxy S Series’ snappers have tended to underperform, and while Nokia’s flagship completely smoked the Galaxy S III in terms of still camera performance (particularly in low light), the Galaxy S4’s much-hyped 13-megapixel offering brings the kinds of improvements you would expect of a next-gen handset. To test one category, one user has taken the opportunity to produce a stabilization comparison video of Samsung’s apparent best video camera against that of the 920, which of course includes that much-lauded PureView technology. Which came out on top? Find out, after the break!

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is finally here, and having already compared the device against the HTC One and iPhone 5, we’re back with another face-off. This time, the new handset will be pitting its wits against two devices which have been presented with the mammoth task of rejuvenating the fortunes of two once-mighty brands in the mobile industry. Both Nokia and BlackBerry have enjoyed vast successes over the past decade, but as both have struggled in the wake of iOS and Android, the Nokia Lumia 920 on Windows Phone 8, and the BlackBerry Z10 on the BB10 OS, have some real ground to make up if they are to compete with the Galaxy S4. Here, we compare them with yet another like-for-like table of the vital specifications.

With the likes of Apple and Samsung dominating the smartphone industry in the last few years, there has been a lot of attention lavished on Nokia over the last couple of weeks as we wait patiently to see if their flagship Lumia 920 device can make any kind of substantial impact in the mobile space. Early indications suggest that the Windows Phone 8 powered device has been received extremely well by consumers but could this be due to the physical design of the device or could the embedded software be a major part of the appeal? Nokia’s lead designer Marko Ahtissari has taken a few minutes to share his thoughts on the product and what he calls a “really beautiful balance between the digital and the physical”.

Although the tech coverage was dominated by Microsoft and Windows Phone 8 yesterday, Google also announced some significant new releases of its own, and among them was the LG-manufactured Nexus 4 smartphone. While it’s perhaps lacking in one or two key departments, it still has enough about it to qualify as high-end, and as such, what bigger test for a top-drawer smartphone than to compare it with the iPhone 5 on iOS and the Lumia 920 on Windows Phone 8?
