So, here is what happened in a car accident a few months ago. Some crazy driver turned in front of me causing the accident. However, she lied to the insurance company about her path, and used the picture she took with her iphone as an evidence.
Then, I sent the pictures I took with my N8, and my pictures were able to reveal the faint road marks of her car, and the insurance company confirmed that she was at fault based on my 12 megapixel pictures, which showed significant details when zoomed in. The pictures that my brother took with his android phone were just blurs like the iphone picture.
So, basically if I had an iphone or android phone, I would have been totally screwed. Not only I would have been found responsible for the accident, but also I would have that on my record, and my insurance rate would go higher. However, thanks to my N8, I am victorious. I spent $380 on that phone, which was an investment very well paid off!!! This was the second time my N8 saved my butt. (The first time was when it helped me drive blindly down the mountain from Lake Arrowhead in absolute fog and rainstorm via its unique offline voice-guided navigation system: http://discussions.nokia.com/t5/Maps-Navigation-an
So, some people might think that lots of megapixels are not really necessary and that they are just a luxury. Only when you have this kind of experience is when you realize how much important a good quality camera is to have with you all the time.
Now that Symbian is gone, I hope that such impressive camera technology (and better) will come to Windows Phone soon.
Long Live Nokia
You would not be disappointed with camera performance of Lumia 920 which will also produce much better night shots.
If I've helped in any way, a click upon the white kudos star would always be appreciated.
Yes, I have seen my friends' Lumia 920 shots. They are very impressive, especially at low light. But at regular light, nothing can beat N8 except 808 PureView. I can't wait to see the rumored Windows phone that is supposed to combine PureView phase 1 and phase 2!!!
