Update: See how the camera on the iPhone 4S compares with the one on the Xperia arc here.
We have assembled for you here a collection of pictures taken using the Nokia N9 and the iPhone 4S. Both shooters feature 8MP sensors and high-end optics. Nokia wowed us before with the epic 12MP sensor on the N8, will the N9 repeat the same success?
Based on the sample pictures that you will see after the jump, the answer is a disappointing no.
In every situation, the iPhone 4S outperforms the Nokia N9, especially in the sharpness and colour reproduction departments. The iPhones shooter is also better at capturing details.
The Nokia N9 performs better in certain low-light and high-contrast conditions but generally the iPhone 4S is better overall.
Some may argue that the iPhone 4S over-saturates colours, while this is true, the result is a generally more rich picture overall, and most can live with that trade-off.
What do you think?
In all pictures: Left — iPhone 4S. Right — Nokia N9
