Just a blue door in the winter sun, captured close-up with the Nokia 808 and Lumia 920

You might have seen this door a bit earlier today. I drove past my favorite (and still closed) Beach Cafe near my work this morning, and saw the winter sun bringing out all the bright colors this small building is showing.

I parked the car and in a hurry (I was late for work...) I made a few shots with the Nokia 808 PureView and the Lumia 920, which is supposed to be "underperforming" in bright light. Well, judge for yourself. I chose for two shots in "portrait" mode, so I can share a much larger (and more detailed) result.

First the Nokia 808 PureView:

Next, the Nokia Lumia 920 (after the Portico update, I'd like to add)

I think the Nokia Lumia 920 is giving a very crisp result, with a bit more saturated colors. Not too much, but enough to please the eye. Although the Nokia 808 PureView might be more "realistic", I really like how the Lumia 920 is performing. Wonder what you think of this.

Here's a 640 x 640 crop showing the lock in both shots, showing the Nokia Lumia 920 is doing a fantastic job after the Portico update. Once more, first the Nokia 808 PureView

Next, the Nokia Lumia 920

I have to add this is just one shot, since clearly, the Lumia 920 has the better detail in this example - which is not really logical in itself. So maybe I moved a bit making the shot, maybe the lens wasn't completely clean - I don't know, it had to hurry.

Let me be perfectly clear there is no doubt in my mind the Nokia 808 PureView has the best camera overall. But I think it's really important to show the Lumia 920 is performing extremely well after the Portico update - that's why I've been eagerly waiting for it.

And yes, if you want to check the originals, they are on the PureViewClub Photostream on Flickr.
