We know the Nokia Lumia 920 is the most versatile and compelling smartphone out there but it’s not every day you get the chance to compare it to the new Samsung Galaxy S4. This hands-on video of them both recording video on the go shows why the Nokia Lumia 920 running Windows Phone 8 clearly has the edge.
We’ve seen the Nokia Lumia 920 set up to compete against similar smartphones before, testing the video quality and the Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) of the two smartphones. WP7Forum.ru has posted a video of the Nokia Lumia 920 going up against the Samsung Galaxy S4 in the Optical Image Stabilisation stakes.
OIS works by detecting camera movement using a highly accurate sensor to detect the degree and direction of movement. But that’s pretty much where the similarity between Nokia’s OIS system and broadly comparable OIS systems ends.
The video is in Russian but it’s easy to understand what is going on. Both smartphones are strapped to the top of a toy car and then both record the journey as they’re pulled along the floor. The footage at the end of the video shows how effective the Nokia Lumia 920 is delivering infinitely better footage than the Samsung Galaxy S4.
