High-res results from the Nokia Lumia Icon

Not able to get my hands on the Nokia Lumia Icon to test it for a longer period, I asked my followers on Twitter if there were any passionate mobile photographers in the US planning to buy one on Verizon - but to no avail. I was happy to be able to test the Nokia Lumia Icon (even if for only  ten minutes) during the Mobile World Congress, but I had to admit I wasn't too thrilled about my own crops.

Thanks to a tip from @Chanimehro from India (who also takes care of the PureViewClub on Google+), I'm happy to be able to share some high-res shots and crops from Juan Carlos Bagnell here, blogger at SomeGadgetGuy. He's known as @SomeGadgetGuy on Twitter, but as SomeAudioGuy (?) on Flickr, where he shares a few of the high-res results he got from the Nokia Lumia Icon. Irresitable to downlaod and crop a few of those of course! :-)

The Nokia Lumia Icon has a 20MP sensor like on the Nokia Lumia 1520. In high-res, it will give you a 19MP shot when you choose the 4:3 aspect ratio and 16MP in 16:9. Some of the shots on his Flickr page seem to be cropped, so I'll only use the 16MP shots he's sharing. Those I resized to 640 x 360 pixels, and I cropped the exact same size from the originals. Piece of cake :-)

Click on the shot to see the original on Flickr. You'll find all his Nokia Lumia Icon shots here.

You will find all these shots on Juan Carlos Bagnell's set on Flickr. I'll share a portrait of him here as well, while I'm at it. Thank you Juan, for letting me choose and crop your shots, I think it's really interesting to see how the Nokia Lumia Icon performs!

Nokia-Lumia-Icon-Samples-5_1024pxI'm quite impressed I must admit. These shots certainly prove to be better than what I got from the Lumia Icon during my 10 minutes at the Mobile World Congress, and I still hope Nokia will bring a version of the Lumia Icon outside the US somewhere this year. But I'm looking forward to what you think - please don't hesitate to share your thoughts below! :-)
