Nokia 9 PureView Camera Test after 3 Months

what’s up everybody this is Danny and today I’ve teamed up with hmd global to share with you my three-month experience with the Nokia 9p review I’ve been getting a

a lot of requests to take a look at this camera especially after the updates I’ve been using it on and off since launch so let’s talk about what makes these

five cameras on the back so special but also let’s talk about some of the things that I want to see improved in the future for this camera tech moving

forward it’s an odd-looking array of cameras on the back but I love that blue color it’s got a nice build all around with metal and glass a 5.9 nine

inch high resolution 1440 by 2880 OLED display also a 3220 milliamp-hour battery and depending on how many pictures you take in a day it should last you through

the entire day it’s also got an in-display fingerprint scanner which got better with the update a clean build of Android which recently got updated to Android 9pi which

I love no bloat here this is an Android one phone and it’s also got a 20-megapixel front-facing camera that takes some decent selfies but the real reason that

you would consider this phone is this crazy camera setup here on the back this is not traditional in the sense where most phones today you would see a telephoto

and maybe an ultra-wide sensor all of these lenses here are 12 megapixels with F 1.8 aperture there are two monochrome and to RGB sensors and that time-of-flight 3d

camera for more accurate depth information what’s incredible is when you hit that shutter button all five cameras capture simultaneously and I think that’s a world’s first and in theory

this should give you some of the most detailed pictures since all of these images are combined giving you up to twelve points four stops of dynamic range and also

there’s no need for an HDR mode because every shot is HDR if you just take one look at the back of this phone then you know that this was

built for photography enthusiasts and even when you first start up the phone it suggests that you download a raw editor if you want to take the best pictures

that this phone can take then go into the settings and enable Raw because this is where this camera shines the JPEGs have improved quite a bit since the recent

updates they’re usable for sure but when you capture the photo they will catch raw and the JPEG at the same time so if you don’t know what a RAW

images it is an uncompressed version of that capture giving you all of the details and information so you do need to learn how to adjust it I love

Snapseed so that’s what I use you can get back all of the highlights add more shadow detail adjust the color and saturation to your liking and add more contrast

you can get a great looking photo after this and here are a few examples of what I’ve edited I am no professional when it comes to editing raw

photos but the images look great and what I like is that the JPEGs tend to be a little bit over sharpened it’s a little bit too sharp for

my taste but with raw and you get a nice blank canvas so you can add back the sharpness to your liking so there are clear advantages for raw capture

also, another advantage for raw on the Nokia 9 peer view is the noise reduction the JPEGs look decent too with nice colors and accurate white balance but the noise

the level is higher with the JPEGs where the raw has almost zero noise in the shot so low-light photography, for the most part, impressed me on the Nokia 9

peer view all of these cameras snapping at once on the raw images does create a nice image for tuning after the capture at night a lot of times it’s

backward where the raw has a little bit more noise and you have to adjust the noise out of it but this time it’s a little bit different also I’m

into monochrome or black-and-white photography and with the true monochrome lenses you can get some super detailed images with incredible contrast I know you can apply a filter to get

the black-and-white look but if you’re into this is a great bonus there’s also a depth mode that you can enable that allows shots to add depth information

to any shot that you take you can use portrait mode if you want to but leaving this on will capture depth for every photo so leaving this on it

will capture the depth information the raw and the JPEG at the same time with the co imaging processor that’s in the Nokia 9p review while this mode is not

perfect I’ve had some pictures where it still messes up some edges but when this mode hits it hits and Nokia says that it captures over 1200 layers of

a depth so you can refocus after the shot and then you can go into the depth slider and create as much ground separation as you want I even shot this

bird from really far away and even though it missed in between the fence I thought it was really impressive that it was able to capture the information necessary to

separate the bird from the background so you combine all of this with the promo to adjust to whatever settings that you want and you have one of the

most powerful cameras on a mobile phone today but the Nokia denies strongest feature can be its greatest enemy because in my three months of usage my issue is not

what the photography but how long it takes to process after I take the photo depending on how many pictures that you take back-to-back you will have to wait on

the processing to even preview that picture and it ties up the Snapdragon 845 processor and drains the battery life so that’s why I explained earlier what this camera

does because once you understand how much information that this camera is capturing at the same time that you can understand why this is happening Nokia did a great job

by really squeezing every bit of computing architecture from the snapdragon 845 and work very closely with Qualcomm to maximize the isp DSP CPU and GPU to optimize this chipset

to its maximum potential I can’t wait to see what this type of camera tech can do with the Snapdragon 805 and beyond since those processors are more powerful and

perfect for this type of application once this tech goes into a more capable processing system and maybe combine that with us 3.0 storage for faster loading times of raw

images it would be more compelling than what it is now and especially if they added maybe a wide-angle to the mix that could get interesting while I feel

like this camera system is not for the average smartphone user that just wants to snap a picture on auto and have it ready to share I feel like the

photo enthusiasts like myself have something to be excited about with this tech it can only get better from here so I hope to see a Nokia 10 peer view

or whatever they call it next with also the average user in mind as well then I feel like it can be a more mass adopted phone but I’ll keep

using this especially with some software updates that are coming down the road because software updates can help some of the things that I was talking about so if things

majorly change then out visit this phone and make another video so I can inform you what’s going on with the Nokia 90 review so let me know what do

you think about the Nokia 90 review are you interested in this phone and this camera setup or would you just rather have a traditional dual or triple camera setup

with the wide and telephoto option let me know what you think if you have any questions leave the questions in the comments section below and I’ll do my best
