OK, firstly I want to say that I and the team at Coolsmartphone have a fairly well rounded respect for mobile platforms other than the one we currently use (and we do all use different phones!)
I have a lot of time for Windows Phone, and have eagerly awaited news of the next gen hardware.
Even with the faked video and the alleged faked photo samples, I expect the Nokia Lumia 920 to be a great camera phone.
I was very disappointed to learn, then, that the 920 records audio in MONO when recording video. I’m not an expert in videography, but this seems like a backward step, particularly when the Nokia 808 records in stereo. So does the iPhone 4S, the HTC One X and the Galaxy S3. Even the iPhone 4 does.
This has been confirmed by Damian Danning (Nokia’s ‘camera guru’) on Twitter (@phonedaz) – tweet pictured below.
I’ve reached out to Damian to ask why Nokia came to this decision, and will update this post if we receive a reply.
What do you think? Is Mono recording a deal breaker, or even important to you? Let us know in the forums or comments below.
