So I had another go at the iPhone 6, the Plus version even this time. Again, it was a colleague who could borrow me the device and I could actually use it for about an hour. First of all: this is a big device, way bigger than I expected it to be.
How big is obvious when I lay it on top of the huge Nokia Lumia 1520 – you’ll still be able to make out the yellow case, but I was surprised to see how much it’s covered by the iPhone 6+
Like I said, I had one hour to get some shots. You’ll see the original scenes coming from the three devices: iPhone 6+ first, Lumia 1020 second and Lumia 1520 third, followed by the crops I got from the same scene in the same order.
In my previous comparison, I blew up some of the 5MP results I got from the Lumia 1520 and 1020, to about the 8MP size (3264 x 2448 pixels) you get from the iPhone 6.
Since these 5MP shots from Nokia are oversampled from their original 20MP or even 38MP results, I’ve seen they can withstand such a treatment very well – and it’s much easier to compare similar sizes.
So that’s what I did for all Nokia shots this time: I blew them up before I cropped them. You’ll find the originals shots on Flickr, as always. The shots were resized from their original formats though.
Like I said, I didn’t have much time, but I think I got an interesting diversity of five scenes in total. Most of them were captured in one of my favorite locations, the National Instituut for Video and Sound in Hilversum.
Remember: the order is iPhone 6+, Nokia Lumia 1020, Nokia Lumia 1520. All settings are on auto. You’ll see the shots and crops first, and to make you come to your own conclusions first, I’ll save mine for last.
