The mega legend Patrick has struck yet again with just getting his Nokia Lumia 1520 he has of course went out and tested the device near home in Dublins docklands and here is what he has sent us back…
Today I had a Nokia Lumia 1520 delivered to me at work. After leaving work just before 8pm tonight I started taking photos with this new phone as soon as I exited the building. As I walked the 200 metres home (I don’t like big commutes – obviously) I captured a grand total of 28 photos on the Nokia Lumia 1520.
In normal circumstances I wouldn’t make any of these images available to the public, as none of them are very good. OK maybe one of them is OK-ish, but you get the point. It always takes me a few days to get a feel for a new camera. That is quite normal for everyone.
So, upon getting home I didn’t want to do another ‘unboxing’ so I decided to be brave and give you all a real insight into how good this device really is. I currently have a Nokia Lumia 1020 with its phenomenal 41mp camera and I know that the 1520 is not as good at that, but I have to be honest and say that it is not much worse – it could be as good and maybe better in some circumstances, but that will only be determined once I get out with this camera in daylight.
Obviously these are all low light photos and I have to admit that the 1520 performed fantastically considering that the lights that illuminate the pathway along the river are not working tonight for some unknown reason.
So, if you are fed up with unboxings, then this is another way to give you an insight into the camera and how someone with no feel for this camera can still take some OK-ish photos despite the unfavourable conditions.
However, as I still have to put the camera through it paces properly, I already know one thing for sure.
This is definitely the best mobile device on the market.
