Nokia recently hooked me up with a Lumia 900 smartphone to test out the camera on it and share the results on my blog.
I have to start out by saying I’ve been an avid iPhone user and supporter since the first one came out, so keep that in mind. But of course I was down to try out a different camera phone just for the sake of it. Why not, right?
Next week I’ll make a blog post with some side by side photos comparing the Lumia 900 to my new iPhone 5, but until then, here are 10 photos shot with the Nokia phone and a few bullet points of what this smartphone camera is all about.
