From these samples you can see that the resolution of both cameras is about the same. What is not the same however is the noise in the pictures. At 200% magnification you can clearly see that the noise levels in the Nokia N93 pictures are significantly higher.

From the close-up samples we can see two things - the Sony Ericsson focuses better at close range and the two cameras render the colors in a different way - K800 photos have warmer look while N93 photos have cooler look. The real colors of the scenes are somewhere in between.

In this scenario Nokia N93 performs better - there is no sign of purple fringing and in general it handles better the overexposed areas.

Nokia N93 video samples

One of the main selling points of the Nokia N93 marketing campaign is its "DVD-like" video recording quality. Of course providing VGA video capturing at 30 frames per second is something unique in the mobile phone world and this alone deserves respect. We leave to you to decide how close these video samples come to DVD recording quality.

One of the main selling points of the Nokia N93 marketing campaign is its "DVD-like" video recording quality. Of course, providing VGA video capturing at 30 frames per second is something unique in the mobile phone world and this alone deserves respect.

The captured video is way better than the ones made by Nokia 6233 which also shoots video in VGA resolution but at half the framerate. Comparing the results to those produced by some of the latest A-series Canon digicam models like Canon A620, the videos captured by Noka N93 lose a bit. The results from a real digital camcorder, however outperform the videos of N93 by a wide margin. But after all, nobody expects from a mobile phone to beat a real dedicated video recording device.

In the end, we leave to you to decide how close these video samples come to DVD video quality.
