Nokia officially unveiled the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 a few days ago. The Finnish company is determined to prove to the world that the Lumia 920 is "the" smartphone to get this holiday season.

After conference, Nokia held a party featuring a challenge for the Apple iPhone 4S and Samsung Galaxy S3.  Any phone that could take better pictures than the Lumia 920 of a flower inside a dark hole, without using flash, would be declared the winner.

The image on the Samsung Galaxy S3 was so dark that viewers could barely make out what was in the picture, and the Apple iPhone 4S's shot came out looking even darker, while the Lumia 920's shot came out clear and vivid.

The Lumia 920 is better positioned than the other devices to win this competition. It has large BSI sensor, lens stabilization, and a host of camera-based software on the back end that should allow the user to take some great looking shots.

Smartphone cameras are slowly catching up to the top of the line DSLR stand-alone sharpshooters.
