Camera Blind Test: Microsoft Lumia 950 XL vs Lumia 1020

This is the third installment of our Camera Blind Test for this week since we have ourselves a threesome of smartphones that have given their rear cameras some serious equipment. We first compared the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL against the LG V10, then the Lumia 1020 and the LG V10, now we pit the two Lumia cousins face to face to see their respective performances in the imaging department.


As a quick rundown of their shooting hardware, the Lumia 950 XL has a 20-megapixel PureView rear camera with Carl Zeiss Optics and is accompanied by a three-piece (RGB) LED flash. The Lumia 1020, on the other hand, rocks a 41-megapixel rear shooter with Carl Zeiss optics as well, but uses a Xenon flash to light its subjects.

Just like before, sample photos will be labeled with A or B so you won’t know which device took which picture. We will be revealing the results next week after tallying all your votes.
