The same can be said about the images of Fenway's Teammates Statue, which is an ode to famous Sox players Ted Williams, Johnny Pesky, Dom DiMaggio and Bobby Doer, as well as David Halberstam's 2003 book based on the four men, "Teammates: A Portrait of Friendship." Look at the bricks and you can see a clear difference in both color and definition.
I truly expected the Lumia 1020 to stand out when zooming in on small areas of images. But look at the zoomed-in image of the plaque on the Teammates Statue. The Lumia image might be clearer, but the difference is negligible.
The images of Fenway's interior face, behind home plate, are probably the most similar. It's difficult to say which device provided better-quality photos, but you can notice a slight difference in color between the two sets.
Fenway's Green Monster in left field, the only wall like it in all of professional baseball, looks more "lifelike" in the iPhone images, and again, the iPhone photos look clearer. Look at the "B Strong" circle or "Fenway Park, Stay Strong" banner; the colors are more crisp, and they're slightly less pixelated in the iPhone photos.
The images of the vintage Red Sox sign inside Fenway's third-base concourse, which is meant to commemorate the year Fenway was built (1912) and then reconstructed (1934), show more of the same.
To sum that all up, in my tests the iPhone 5S iSight camera provided better images across the board than the Nokia Lumia 1020 PureView camera, demonstrating that it really isn't only about megapixels when it comes to smartphone cameras.
