Camera shootout: Nokia 808 PureView vs Apple iPhone 4S (pictures)
In this last shot, the 808 PureView's image is somewhat underexposed, though it handles the contrast between light and dark areas better.
When shooting in difficult light, remember that each handset brings different features to the table. Unlike the iPhone 4S, the 808 PureView lacks a High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode, but it does have a bracketing mode, a feature found in most dSLRs. You can take a maximum of five images at up to +/-2 stops, then process them into HDR photos using additional software. If you prefer a strict HDR mode, however, check out the HTC One X. It performed well in our camera shootout against the iPhone 4S.
We'll be spending more time with the Nokia handset and taking more photos, so do look out for a full review soon.
