Why Nokia Lumia 920 Scores Over Apple iPhone 5?

Nokia Lumia 920 vs. Apple iPhone 5I love writing. And the best part about my job is getting hands on to the latest devices, even before they hit the market shelves. Getting my hands on both the Nokia Lumia 920 and the iPhone 5 was like receiving two pies from the sky, in my favorite flavor. Both the phones felt great, and I was happily wondering about the discriminating choices we got- all with latest technology, updated apps, and innovative features.

Both the inventive devices gave me the flexibility of either using iOS 6 platform or Windows Phone 8 operating system. Both of them support 4G LTE. To make options clear for you, I am penning down the pros and cons of both the smartphones’ specifications. Going by my personal choice, I feel the Nokia Lumia 920 scores high over the Apple’s iPhone 5. Read on to know why.

Since the introduction of Lumia smartphones, Nokia has not been leaving a single opportunity to show people that their device is way better than Apple’s iPhone 5 and considering some of its reasoning, I do agree.

To start, let’s consider the screen size

Apple hugely publicized its iPhone 5 to have a 4-inch screen, bigger than any of its predecessors. But then obviously, there’s Samsung S3 in the market with a bigger screen size of 4.8-inch. However, back to Lumia 920, the device has a 4.5-inch screen with PureMotion HD and a WXGA IPS LCD and a ClearBack display. Thumbs up for Lumia? Also getting down to pixels, the Lumia boasts of 1280×768 pixels resolution with 326 ppi and iPhone 5 has resolution of 1136×640 pixels with 332 ppi. I am leaving the calculations to you.

Coming down to design

Apple’s iPhone 5 looks great with a sleek body made of aluminum and glass. Added to this device is an additional row of icons on the homepage to fiddle with. On the opposite side, the Nokia Lumia 920 is more colorful with choices of yellow, red, white, black or grey body, so the look is more customized here. I got a red one and it does stand out in looks.

Next in line, camera

A flashy camera completes the picture and for these two phones, it is a tough call. The Nokia Lumia 920 boasts of an 8.7 megapixel rear PureView camera with 1.2 pixels at the front. On the other side, the iPhone 5 has an 8 megapixel camera, which also lets me take pics while I shoot videos. So on camera front, both the devices are in A-front.

Now, wireless charging

The Nokia Lumia 920 comes packed with a special charging pod, making charging a completely tangle free process. Apple’s lightning connector is also the latest and can be inserted upside down. But Nokia’s charging pod is the catch here.

The User Interface

Both the smartphones are easy-to-use and have simple sensitive interface. But in this case too, Nokia takes the lead. The Nokia PureView is great. It has everything including fingertips, fingernails, gloves, and everything else. Surely, Nokia has the technology, whereas Apple doesn’t.

Considering all features, even though Apple has managed to sell over 2 million iPhone 5 devices so far, there’s no doubt that the competition out there is tough. Nokia has all its hopes set to win the smartphone market with its Lumia series and considering all the pros, the phone surely leans me towards it more.

So which one do you prefer? Share your comments with us.… Read the rest

Hands On iPhone5: It Was Almost Like Bumping Into My Superhero From The Big Screen

Writing about iPhone 5 last few weeks was fun and laying hands on the actual device was even better. It was almost like bumping into my superhero from the big screen. Standing in the long queue was totally worth it!

To start, not only could I relate my writings with the device, but it also sounded a lot more familiar.

Also I was smiling and was happy about joining the league of proud owners of an iPhone 5 with the latest iOS 6.

So, for those who stayed unsuccessful in grabbing the device the day-one, I could help solve the mystery by listing down some of the answers to your questions.

The world’s long-awaited iPhone 5 is surely a lot thinner, lighter, and brighter. Apple gave birth to A6 chip in its latest offering. The firm heavily marketed claiming iPhone 5 to be faster than the iPhone 4S. I kept both the phones on the same wavelength and tapped on to download the same data on the same Wi-Fi. And my latest iPhone 5 did download the webpage few seconds faster than the 4S. So the iPhone 5 surely stays ahead of 4S in terms of speed boost.

The only shortcome this phone got is in its new mapping app, which replaces the Google Maps. But that is okay for me as I don’t really rely much on maps apps.

Watching videos on iPhone 5 is also a lot clearer and smoother. Swapping in between apps is also quick and instant in it. The glass at the front looks strong, though the device is light. Apple claims it to be scratch resistant and I am hoping it will be durable as many users out there have already taken the drop test. I didn’t really try the drop test. Well, to be honest- couldn’t!

The phone has aluminum encasing, which does look prone to scratches as it makes the phone too light. So, I suggest it’s better to get a stylish cover that goes well with the device.

The 4-inch screen looks slightly bigger than the 4S’s 3.5-inch display. The display till the edges does give it a bigger look. But that doesn’t compromise on the comfort level. The phone has a good grip and is easy to balance.

Features such as enhanced camera and better handling of apps do make iPhone 5 a better choice. And about the new lighting connector that came along, it is definitely smaller, but doesn’t really charge the device any faster. Both the 4S and iPhone 5 took the same time to fully charge. The only thing that I liked about this charger was that it could be used upside-down.

One another notable difference, which I am sure all users will notice, is the quality or clarity of voice while making calls. The iPhone 5 got a very good speaker clarity, which is detectable while making calls, watching videos or listening to music.

This phone is surely a sleeker and smarter choice than its predecessor- the 4S.

iPhone5 vs Nokia Lumia 920: I Am In A Fix

“It’s here…the iPhone5..yay!!”, I announced while working (and surfing) at 2am in the night when the news regarding the Apple’s most anticipated launch had started pouring in. And to my utter shock, as soon as the magic words ‘the iPhone5’ landed in my husband’s ears, who was fast asleep till such time (he just loves his sleep!!), he literally sprung up from his slumber and just snatched the laptop away from me (on which I was patiently appreciating the latest beauty which Apple had recently bequeathed to the world). So much for chivalry! He was drooling at the latest offering from the Apple’s cart. “What do you think?”  I asked.

“It’s stunning.” He replied and for the next half hour or so I was subjected to my husband’s unrelenting praise for the new iPhone and at the same time wondering where all of a sudden his sleep went. So strange that a man who would never sacrifice his sleep for my romantic  yearnings, was wide awake in the middle of the night, all pumped up for a mere phone, his fascination for  technology  and most importantly for Apple has always intrigued me. Personally, I was skeptical about the admiration my husband was showering on iPhone5. I had my reservations (which I would amplify eventually). I was actually wondering, whether I am the only person who thinks iPhone5 is a mere upgrade.  Though it is a looker but I feel Apple could have delivered better, at least in terms of technology. I was hoping or rather expecting it to bring a kind of revolution in the Smart Phone world.

And let me assure that the reason for my skepticism is valid. Fortunately, just after its announcement, I had got my hands on Nokia Lumia 920 for a review (courtesy my profession-tech journalist) and I can safely say that  iPhone5 has a worthy competitor. Let me elaborate.

Looks

The Windows 8 wonder, Nokia Lumia 920 looks bright and fresh. It comes in solid colors (my favorite is yellow) and has solid one-piece polycarbonate body with rounded edges. Some of you might say that its looks are borrowed from Lumia 800 but it is still more striking and fun than the stylish aluminum and glass body of the iPhone5.

Screen size

I am an admirer of big screens and Nokia Lumia 920’s 4.5 inch screen with a resolution of 1280×768 (roughly speaking, that’s a 16:10 aspect ratio) is worthy of an applaud. Lumia has 332ppi pixel density and sports an IPS AMOLED screen with an anti-glare filter which lends Lumia exceptional clarity. On the other hand iPhone5 ‘s 4 inch screen with a 1136 x 640 resolution( 16:9 aspect ratio) and a pixel density of 326ppi (still less clear than Nokia Lumia)  is a disappointment for me.

Weight

Here I would say iPhone 5 wins. If I am at the liberty to exaggerate then I would say that the iPhone5, weighing just 112 g is as light as a feather whereas Nokia Lumia 920 weighing 180gm is a bulky phone.

Know more about Apple’s Llghtning cable here: http://techthirsty.com/2012/09/26/3378/

Processor

The Lumia 920 runs on Windows Phone 8 and has a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chip, backed by 1GB of RAM where as iPhone5 runs on A6 chip (still very little is known about it as Apple has kept the specification under wraps, though I guess that it would be a dual  core chip). What more is left to see is how fast the apps would load or the games would run on iPhone5 as compared to Nokia Lumia 920 ( I think for which I have to wait till September 21)

Software

Nokia Lumia 920 runs on  Windows Phone 8 but as the OS has still not been released I cannot say much about it but yes it has been speculated that Windows 8 would allow third party developers. As far as iPhone5 goes it runs on iOS6 which is a breeze to use. iOS6 has a neat Twitter and Facebook integration and the new Map app is superb.

Capacity

I like having loads of stuff on my phone from movies to books to sitcoms and Lumia  (16 or 32 GB) with its plus 7GB free with a Microsoft SkyDrive account satiates my need completely where as iPhone5 comes in  16, 32 and 64GB variants without the possibility of adding more memory to it.

Camera

A good camera is what enhances the smart phone experience and Nokia Lumia does full justice to it. The Lumia 920 with its 8.7Mp sensor and optical, rather than electronic, stabilization easily challenges the iPhone 5’s 8Mp camera which undoubtedly has an impressive back-illuminated sensor and precision-engineered lens, plus the stabilization and new panorama features. Nokia has also gone an extra mile to add features to the 920’s camera app – including augmented reality with its so-called City Lens.

Wifi

It is here where Lumia 920 loses, it merely supports 2.4GHz where as the iPhone 5 have dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi (it works on 2.4 and 5GHz).

All in all  if tomorrow my husband is generous enough to ask me which phone would I want as my anniversary gift I would really be in a fix, though the iphone5 is the apple of our eyes but with the Lumia 920 ( I have high hopes from Windows 8) Nokia sure has made a comeback!

Why Amazon’s 7-inch Kindle Fire Has Become The Apple of My Eye.

The rains have set in. What could be better than a hot cuppa, some zesty pakoras and the intriguing company of Chekov (courtesy my digital companion- The 7-inch tablet). But unfortunately for me the yearning for this mysterious yet immersive world of digital literature  has come at a time when I already have too much on my plate. All sorts of occasions have suddenly popped up, be it my parents’ anniversary, our house warming party or the so- called brain storming session to crack the new campaign for a major client, I am required on a mandatory basis everywhere. Uff!  How I wish the world comes to halt so that I can make time for my 7-inch buddy!

 

And if you are one of those who are enchanted by neat technology, just like me, then you guessed it right, my 7-inch tablet comes from  Amazon’s hive. The Kindle Fire has got me hooked. It arrived last year and took the mini tablet market by storm since. The $199 tablet, which was sold out in the US,  is the second most popular tablet after Apple’s iPad. All of us know that Kindle revolutionized the mini- tablet world by being the first of its kind, and off course Google Nexus followed the suit. Kindle Fire is a tasteful 7-inch tablet and its IPS (in-Plane switching technology) makes it a book worm’s paradise . What works for me in the Kindle Fire is its 8 hour long battery life and the vibrant colorful screen.

Reading books and watching movies becomes more fun with the effervescent colors of Kindle Fire screen. (The colors look even better in the backdrop of rains and bird tweets)

The best feature of Kindle Fire is its weight. It weighs as light as 14.6 ounces, which makes it easy to carry all around the world. I am not only traveling for my personal affairs but the unavoidable  frequent business trips has made me addicted to the Kindle’s business apps (I can say that my business documents have never been more secure). Kindle comes loaded with document editing tools, which at times have helped me complete my presentations in the very nick of time.

Well, I am intrigued by short stories of Chekov for now (he must have never thought that there will be time when his massive collection of short stories would be compressed in a cool digital wonder like Kindle Fire).

Kindle Fire has undoubtedly revamped the way we read books today.

I am enjoying my Kindle time, what are you doing this rainy season?… Read the rest
