The iPhone detox: My week with the Lumia 930 – Day 6

Unsurprisingly, the Lumia 930 has a pretty great camera. The phone boasts a 20 megapixel PureView sensor with Carl Zeiss optics, which is supported by Nokia's photography apps. Nokia Camera is definitely the highlight of the app selection, giving users manual control over flash, white balance, focus, ISO, exposure and shutter speed. Quite frankly, the majority of images I've taken with the Lumia 930 look fantastic. The camera's one downfall is low light imaging; it really struggles to focus when taking pictures at night. You can set the focus manually, but even then the sensor seems to pick up a lot of noise.

But rather than keep talking about the camera, I thought it best to actually show off a few photos! Firstly I've included a comparison between the Lumia 930, iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S5 and Nexus 5. These photos were taken using automatic settings on a busy street around 5pm. Secondly, I've included an album of miscellaneous photos I've taken using the Lumia. Full screen these photos for best effect.

Again, if anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask!
