Video Recording Battle! Nokia 5800 vs iPhone 3Gs

This is part 2 of our 3-megapixel battle between the Nokia 5800 and iPhone 3Gs.

In this simple battle, we will see the pros and cons of both video camera in a few aspects:
– Recording at infinity distance and zooming
– Focusing and macro recording.

First up, let’s see how both devices fair in recording and zooming.

iPhone 3Gs

Nokia 5800

Verdict: The Nokia 5800 XPM produces clearer and smoother video and has the zooming capability with louder audio reception. iPhone 3Gs on the other hand, cannot zoom and has a less sensitive mic.

Second test: Focusing and macro capabilities.

iPhone 3Gs

Nokia 5800

Verdict: iPhone here has the upper hand as it allows pre-focusing (which is very good for recording at very very short distances) while the Nokia 5800 does not have focus at all (resulting in blur objects and close distances).
