It seems the Nokia Lumia 1020 (and probably all Lumia Pureview handsets) have a major Achilles heel, and that is the Panorama Mode on the camera.
Phones4U’s Community Team has put the camera up against the Sony Xperia Z1, Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One in a test of a sweeping and dramatic landscape perfect for the panorama mode, and unfortunately the Nokia Lumia 1020 woefully underperformed, capturing only a small arc of the 360 sweep, and producing a picture which was under representative of the usual quality of the camera while exhibiting stitching artefacts.
This is not the first time the poor stitching of the panorama mode in Windows Phone has been noticed. Have our readers run into the same issue, and can you recommend a Lens app which performs better? Let us know in the comments below.
