Stealthy black is the colour of the day, says me. So we rounded up three stealthy black Nokia phones to compare their shapes, sizes, curves and differences. Our eyes are attracted to one particular black beauty though, which is the new Nokia Lumia 800. Put side-to-side with an N9, there’s not much that sets them apart aside from a few details. Lets go…
Left to right we have the Nokia N9, Lumia 800 and N8. In the photograph it looks like the N8 is taller but I assure you it’s not. The N9 and Lumia 800 both have a couple of millimetres on the imaging king there. In the centre you can see the Lumia 800’s back key, home button and search button. This means the 3.7″ display size is slightly smaller than the N9’s 3.9″.
On the the centre handset here (Nokia Lumia 800) the extra button is a dedicated camera key. This is a welcome addition for photography focused users.
Here is a good example of just how sleek the Lumia 800 is in comparison to the N8. Although the N8 has a huge 12MP Carl Zeiss camera, it takes up a lot of room on the exterior of the phone with that large sensor and Xenon flash. Also we can see another difference in the N9 and Lumia 800 – the duel LED flash is positioned parallel to the camera lens instead of above. (Aha you see, the Lumia 800 is on the left this time, did you notice?)
So there you have it. There’s our stealthy black comparison of the Nokia Lumia 800, Nokia N9 and Nokia N8. You can check out the rest of our pictures on our flickr(new) stream below. Also, what are your thoughts on the Lumia 800? Do you dig the subtle differences between it and the N9? How do you think it would look and feel with the camera from the N8 attached? Let us know!
