As you maybe aware, I have a Nokia Lumia 925 for a couple of weeks, and I thought I’d compare it’s camera with my Lumia 920. Both phones feature an 8.7 megapixel camera sensor, with optics by Carl Zeiss. The 920 has 5 layers of lenses while the 925 has 6. Also, the 925 comes with the latest Windows Phone 8 software, GDR2, also known as Amber, which is said to have better image optimisation than the version found on the 920, namely Portico.
So how much difference does the 925’s advantages make. Let’s have a look. I have taken 3 pictures on both cameras, each with the Camera Settings on Auto, and the flash switched off. The first picture in each comparison is the 920 followed by the 925. Click an image to see it in full resolution.

In summery, the colours from the 920 are a little deeper, while the 925 perhaps has more fine details.

Very little difference between these two pictures. Perhaps in this one the 925 seems to have slightly brighter colours.

In my opinion, the car looks brighter in the 920 picture, and the leaves on the path look browner and more autumn-like. There is a little more detail in the 925 shot. The next shot is a close up of a Lego type figure painted on the a wall. Judge for yourself, but I think there is a little more detail in the 925 crop.
I hope you found these picture comparisons of interest. Please leave any comments you may have below, I always like to hear peoples feedback. I have a couple of video clips from both cameras to compare on here. So keep a look out for that.
Of course, however good the cameras on the 920 and 925 are, the real champion is just about to go on sale in certain markets, the Lumia 1020. That is one to keep a look out for.
