Nokia is taking the fight to Samsung and Apple in a new video posted to YouTube.

Dubbed "The Hurricane," the video follows a roller coaster going around its track as it's being filmed by Nokia's new Lumia handset, the Lumia 928, as well as by Apple's iPhone 5 and Samsung's Galaxy S3. Thanks to the handset's 8.7-megapixel PureView camera, Nokia argues, Lumia's visuals will be much better than those of its rivals when recording video.

After showing the roller coaster moving around the track, Nokia's video compares frames to those captured by the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S3. It's clear, based on those frames, that the PureView takes the top spot, though whether it is truly a fair comparison is unknown.

Photos leaked earlier this week of the Lumia 928. Nokia hasn't officially revealed all the details on the device, and has instead decided to slowly offer up tidbits.

Notably, Nokia compares the Lumia 928 camera to that of the Galaxy S3 and not Samsung's latest handset, the Galaxy S4. It would be interesting to see how those two devices match up on an amusement-park ride.
