We have seen the Sony Xperia S go up against the competition when it comes to still images, yet we haven’t seen too many video recording comparisons. This is where Dutch site Beste Product comes in. They shot 1080p video with the Xperia S and iPhone 4S side-by-side to compare both video footage and audio capture. They also did the same with the Nokia N8, but shot in 720p instead so it was a fair test (the Nokia N8 cannot shoot in 1080p).
Trying to determine a winner in these split-screen scenarios is always quite tricky. The Xperia S seems to show a bit more detail than the iPhone 4S and definitely performs better under low-light conditions. However, the difference in quality wasn’t night and day to our eyes, much like the Nokia N8 comparison. What do you think? Check out both videos below.
