Nokia had a lot to be excited about on Wednesday with the debut of the Lumia 920 with PureView technology, but unfortunately their marketing team botched the whole operation by supplying video and images that were not taken with the Lumia 920 as evidence as to why the new technology is great. It seems companies never learn that once a video is available on the internet, every minute detail can be pored over and dishonesty will be discovered.
Nokia has apologized for the deception and invited The Verge to Central Park in an event that allowed them to test the Lumia 920 against several other leading smartphones on the market. The Verge was only allowed to take still images, as Nokia said the PureView video technology is not ready yet. However, as you can see above, the Lumia 920 really does outperform all other smartphones available on the market. The HTC One X did the most admirable job of keeping up with the Lumia 920, but only when it was specifically set to its night mode that allowed for low light capture.
What do you think? Obviously Nokia should have been upfront about its marketing materials, but it looks like the technology really is as good as Nokia has touted on Wednesday.
