Samsung Galaxy Camera vs Nokia Lumia 920

One is a Windows-powered smartphone built by Nokia to be the finest calling, texting, and browsing machine running Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform. The other is an Android-powered smart camera built to take on the vast army of unconnected point-and-shoots covering the land. In almost every conceivable way, these machines are as different as two mobile devices can be. So why on Earth would we choose to compare them?

Because you asked for it.

More precisely, you asked us to compare the Galaxy Camera with the 808 PureView, the prototype release for Nokia’s premium cameraphone brand. Well, that’s coming -wait till the end of the video for our promise on that- but in the meantime, we thought we’d try something a little different. We’ve already demonstrated that it’s possible -though not necessarily enjoyable- to use the Galaxy Camera as a smartphone, so why not pit its optics against a smartphone that Nokia touts as one of the best in class when it comes to cameras?

We couldn’t think of a reason not to do it, either. So click the video below for a photo, video, hardware, and software face-off between the Nokia Lumia 920 and the Samsung Galaxy Camera.
