Most of the hype behind the Nokia Lumia 1020 has been about its 41-megapixel PureView camera, but the company also has some new sound recording technology inside the Windows Phone 8 device. In a new promo video, Nokia shows how the phone's rich recording technology compares to two thinly disguised competitors.
The video, as posted on YouTube, shows a DJ doing his DJ thing on a stage. A disclaimer posted before the video starts states that the video was taken with two prototype Lumia 1020 smartphones, along with clips of the same scene, recorded in the same spot, with "Competitor S" (we would guess that would the the Samsung Galaxy S4) and "Competitor A" (most likely the Apple iPhone 5).
As you can see in the video, "Competitor S" recorded the DJ on the high end of the pitch scale while the same scene filmed by "Competitor A" seemed to have its sound recorded from a great distance. The Nokia Lumia 1020's video clearly had the best sound recording, with some deep bass and overall better sound.
The Nokia Lumia 1020 has three microphones inside that record in full stereo and if this video is any indication of what the smartphone is really capable of, we think that video recording with sound will be a much better experience with this product.
