ALARM! UNPLANNED POST

CURRENTLY TEST IS NOT OPTIMIZED FOR MOBILE VIEW!

In older posts I’ve pointed to the fact that Nokia 808 is the most powerful camera-phone in terms of provided detail.
I would like to remind you that previously tested Samsung S20 and even 1-inch Panasonic CM1 can’t stand in direct competition to Nokia 808.

Here are sample pictures. Funny thing ,that Nokia don’t even has a RAW format.
But look how details preserved in a crispy manner. Nokia’s JPG engine is simply stunning.

▒ DIRECT COMPARISON

In the very beginning of the test I underline the fact that we are comparing only resolution and not the dynamic range. In this category older FSI sensor is an outsider, for sure. So without further ado, fresh and insanely priced Sony Xperia Pro-I vs Finnish golden champion of the past.

Glitchy modern browsers can easily alter image quality during page rendering or badly construe scaling factors, so i suggest to download original images from my cloud storage and pixel peep them at 100% manually.

ANGLE OF PICTURES DIFFERS A BIT DUE TO DIFFERENT FOCAL DISTANCES OF THE DEVICES AND LIMITED AMOUNT OF TIME TO DO A TEST.

▒ BOTTOM LINE

As for me i’m keeping my trusty Nokia, because amount of detail is critical for my work and PRO-I providing less resolution than Nokia 808.
But Sony proved that they have the most quality android cameraphone to date with excellent dynamic range, minimal stupid things like over-sharpening, dumb aquarel processing and other ai things, which are currently for sure in pubertal period.


SO, IPHONE, SAMSUNG, XIAOMI, HUAWEI ARE NO COMETITION FOR XPERIA PRO-I.

But for generic people it will be wiser to buy Samsung S21 or Xiaomi Mi11 Ultra .
These smartphones provide loads of functionality, good image quality at a reasonable price.
