The camera hardware is also mostly the same as the Lumia 920 (although it uses a 6 lens Carl Zeiss arrangement rather than a 5 lens) meaning that it has an 8.7-megapixel sensor with optical image stabilisation and dual LED flash.
Naturally, there's autofocus too and the ability to capture 1080p HD video at 30fps.
There's also a front-facing 1.2-megapixel camera for video calling or still pictures.
Many of the upgrades to the camera come in the form of software tweaks, largely delivered under the umbrella of Nokia's new Smart Camera mode/app.
Essentially, the app brings a host of new preset modes to the phone, such as Best Shot or Action Shot or the ability to remove moving objects.
Best Shot allows you to choose from one of ten frames taken for every photograph so you can select your favourite, or the most in focus, of the bunch. Similarly, Action Shot uses the same ten-frame approach, but allows you to select or deselect how many you would like to show to create an 'action' effect; there's also a mode that allows you to blur the background, or removing any moving objects from a picture.
The launch of the Lumia also brings the previously seen Data Sense app to the handset as standard. Although first announced at the launch of Windows Phone 8 at the end of 2012, the data usage tracking app has not been readily available in the UK.
Other notable Nokia apps, such as Nokia Music and its HERE Transit, HERE Drive, HERE City Lens, HERE Maps are all still present on the phone, adding some value.
