I have had Lumia 1020 with 41MP excellent camera for already 5 years or more. Welcome to 2017, gsmarena, bhahahah!

How come the production date down on the right is 2016/02 ? Pretty much photoshop.

having a larger sensor doesn't mean you'll have bad low light quality even if the aperture in't big this can be compensated with image stabilization for anyone who knows anything about photography knows that the main way of enhancing low light performance is slowing down the shutter speed. What companies do with lower resolution sensors and "bigger pixels" is always enhanced with a lot of software. This route is taken only because it's easier to work on processing the image instead of developing a sensor that can compensate well enough to keep the shutter open for long enough. Bigger pixels are just the easier way not the best.

Otherwise it wouldn't be as fast/accurate for longer focus, say architecture and landscape shooting. The 808 lens is proper for general use. The "kit" lens for any SLR can't do macro either, that's for specialized lenses. I usually shoot 85mm on APS-C and (auto)focusing anything closer than say 10 ft fails a lot, anything closer than 5 ft being impossible.

AnonD-655832, 01 Apr 2017The chipset supports it so even if it's not real one will do it ... moreVery true. Good read thankyou.
It will be interesting to wait see what quality smart imaging comes from Nokia flagship and Pixel 2 this year.

Joselius, 02 Apr 2017You record your wedding with phone? Lol. He didn't said he recoreded his wedding with a phone. 480p could be the resolution of an older DSLR or a compact camera.

Another thing to note is that Pureview 808 camera is not as good as it seem. It is notorious for focus error. The autofocus cant seem to focus accurately on subject. It also have a very large minimal focus distance. It cant focus on anything less than 20cm from the lens. This making it a horrible camera for macro shot. The Lumia 1020 did better overall for this. If only it can record 2K and 4K. The standard back then was lower.

30mp? You need 32mp in 16x9 format for my 75" 8k tv in year 2020. My 480p wedding video now look like crap on my 65" 4k tv. Need to be more future proof.

Sony The Innovator, 02 Apr 2017Okay thanks for that. Idk why, but seems like I'm pretty dumb at... moreYup, but mostly people take picture using phone just for social media, so 1/2.3 is more than enough

LG superfan, 01 Apr 2017Nokia lumia 1020 had 41mpThat is a 41 MP camera phone, noy a 30 MP one. There is a difference, and how many 40 MP camera phones did you see in the past few years?

If cheap, buy this

Anonymous, 01 Apr 2017are you afraid of todays date? do you have a trauma or something... moreNo, it simply is an awful date in general. Where i live, most people dont really joke about anything but when your an active internet user like me and you find out 90% of all articles are a joke, it just makes you feel like it is waste of time to even open an internet browser on that day and even more so when some jokes should be believable and represent actual products (unless completely overrated) but they arent :(.

Anonymous, 01 Apr 2017Nokia had a 40mpOf course they had, but that is 40 MP, this one is 30 MP, there is a difference. And how many 40 MP camera phones did you see in the past few years?

For all we know this is just a prank from xiaomi... Cause.. April fools day.

I think 30MP is definitely the sum of the individual camera resolutions especially since Xiaomi already dabbles in dual-cams. Otherwise, I don't think anyone (even Nokia/HMD) would inch towards a super-high resolution camera again (a la 808 Pureview/Lumia 1020). The Google Pixel's HDR+ camera is right way forward.
