Nokia Lumia 830 versus Nokia Lumia 930. Outside and inside (with and without flash)

I said I would wait for Lumia Camera before using the (last) Nokia Lumia 830, in any other comparisons. But I failed, being way too curious about the quality of the sensor and current software – after all, it can only get better, right?

Nokia Lumia 830 (10MP) compared to Lumia 920 (8.7MP) and Lumia 930 (5MP PureView)

Today, I tested the new Nokia Lumia 830 against his much older brother, the Lumia 920, introducing OIS to the PureView concept. And I compared it with the recent Lumia 930, offering PureView oversampling, which the Lumia 830 doesn’t offer: something’s gotta give if you want an “affordable flagship”.

Apple’s iPhone 6 compared to Nokia, Samsung and LG smartphone camera flagships

An acquaintance of mine was among the first Dutch buyers of the iPhone 6 – and he was happy to go for a short walk with me last wednesday to capture some scenes to compare. We had less than one hour. I was carrying six other smartphones: the “usual suspects” so to say. Nokia 808 PureView, Lumia 1020,
