A little earlier today, we were talking about the Lumia 920, specifically in regards to HTC thinking the phone is a smidge too thick and heavy. When we tackled that issue before, one of the big reasons we noted for the phone’s size was to accommodate its high-performance camera component. That’s really been one of the big selling points for the 920 that Nokia’s played-up, concentrating on the camera’s optical image stabilization and its exceptional low-light performance. As it turns out, though, those low-light abilities may be a curse in disguise, and the camera’s ability to take photos in normal, well-lit conditions may be suffering as a result. From the sound of things, Nokia could already be on top of this issue, working on a fix for a future update.
Nokia France’s Xavier des Horts responded to a tweet about this supposed issue, which described images taken with plenty of lighting as too smooth, or soft-looking. Des Horts only replied briefly, but did note that Nokia would work to make adjustments to the 920’s camera to address this issue.
Of course, just when it might get around to releasing such an update is anyone’s guess, but we suppose it’s enough for now to know that Nokia isn’t outright dismissing this problem, and should be taking steps to make things right.
