Nokia Lumia 920 Vs Apple iPhone 5 Vs Nokia Lumia 820: Can This Friday Windows Phone go up Against the iOS?

Well, Microsoft did finally unveil the Windows Phone 8 a couple of months ago, giving fresh hope to the former world leader in mobile phones, Nokia. And from what we’ve been hearing, Nokia has managed to make the headlines in a good way with its latest smartphones, the Lumia 920 and the Lumia 820. Now, we can’t quite compare OS to OS, because that would be an endless discussion, but we are pitting these two phones against the iPhone 5 to see if it does make for worthwhile competition to Apple’s bestselling smartphone.

Nokia Lumia 820: The Lumia 820 is a more affordable Windows Phone 8 based smartphone. It has a 4.3-inch display with a 217 ppi resolution, which is a lot less than the other two contenders, but does a decent job in reproducing images nevertheless. Powered by a 1.5 GHz Snaprdragon processor and 1 GB of RAM, the Lumia 820 is also equally powered to run the OS smoothly. The internal storage in the Lumia 820 is just 8 GB, but Nokia has been considerate to include a microSD card slot on this device. A 1650 mAh battery does sound a little on the lower side, but we’re expecting it to run on a single charge for a whole day at least.

Nokia Lumia 920: This is the flagship Windows Phone 8 smartphone from Nokia and boy, are we in love with it! And not just for its ultra-sleek form factor and quirky colors, but also because of what lies beneath. With a 4.5-inch full HD display, the Lumia 920’s screen with a 332 ppi resolution is an absolute beauty. Add to that the 8 MP rear camera with Nokia’s PureView technology, and you can be assured of turning into a huge shutterbug with this phone. Powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon processor and 1 GB of RAM, Windows Phone 8 works almost fluidic on the Lumia 920. The 2000 mAh battery keeps it up and running for well over a day, even with heavy usage. Our only grouse with the phone – the limited 32 GB internal storage with no microSD card for memory expansion.

Apple iPhone 5: Apple’s latest iPhone is unsurprisingly thinner, faster, and more powerful than the iPhone 4S. However, we do wish it came with a bigger screen than the same old 4-inch feature. With a 326 ppi resolution, the Lumia 920 does win more points than the iPhone 5 in terms of display quality. Powered by the Apple A6 dual-core processor and 1 GB of RAM, there’s no doubt that iOS6 works like a dream on this phone. Its 8 MP camera is of course one of the best that you can find on a smartphone – especially with its HDR and 360-degree panorama modes.

Oh, and before we forget, if you’ve been vying for either of the Lumia smartphones, they’re releasing in the Indian market on 11th January.  Nokia Lumia 920 may have a price point of Rs 35000-40000, while Lumis 820 may be priced around Rs 20000. So, get ready to do some smartphone shopping soon.… Read the rest

Savory Nokia Lumia 920 Vs HTC Windows Phone 8X: Is Nokia Back With A Bang?

We may have been skeptical before, but we know for sure now that people are liking the Windows Phone 8 OS. Now, it may take a while before it can catch up with the likes of Android and iOS, but with the latest offering, Microsoft has definitely taken a step in the right direction. Today, we’re looking at two of the flagship Windows Phone 8 based smartphones from Nokia and HTC.

On the outside: Windows-based phones look bright, colorful and cheery. Both Nokia and HTC have given their phones a colorful exterior and they do catch your eye at first glance. But, we have to give a slight edge to the HTC Windows Phone 8X for its slimmer and lighter design – the Nokia Lumia 920 is quite a heavy phone in comparison. The Lumia 920 features a 4.5-inch IPS TFT display, while the Windows Phone 8X has a slightly smaller 4.3-inch S-LCD2 display. In terms of resolution, they’re almost similar, but HTC has a slightly higher ppi display.

On the inside: In terms of power too, both phones are identical, with a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM, as well as an Adreno 225 GPU chipset. However, the Lumia 920 does come with 32 GB of internal memory as opposed to the Windows Phone 8X’s 16 GB provision. This is an important factor to consider, especially since neither of the phones have a microSD card slot. The Lumia 920 also has a slight edge over the Windows Phone 8X due to its 2000 mAh battery, against HTC’s 1800 mAh one.

Camera: This is an area where HTC would find it hard to beat Nokia. While both phones have an 8 MP rear camera, the Lumia 920’s camera has advanced features like Carl Zeiss optics, Nokia’s PureView technology, and optical image stabilization. However, in terms of front-facing camera, we have to give it to HTC for including a 2.1 MP front-facing camera in the Windows Phone 8X. On the other hand, the Lumia 920 has only 1.3 MP resolution for its front-facing camera. Both the rear cameras can record videos at 1080p resolution, but Windows Phone 8X’s front camera can also do the same, while the Lumia 920’s front camera can capture video at 720p resolution.

Other features: Both phones offer similar connectivity options of LTE, 3G, WiFi and Bluetooth. However, the Lumia 920 can even act as a WiFi hotspot. Windows Phone 8 works amazingly smooth on both these devices.
