Nokia Lumia 620 And Huawei Ascend W1 On The Plane To Italy For A Price Not Too High


Behold your breath as two solid Windows Phone 8 models are about to get catapulted in Italy. Nokia Lumia 620 and Huawei Ascend W1 with  3.8 inch screen and 4 inch screen respectively would hit the Italian market for the price of $325 and $ 259. Both the phones are off contract.

Launched at CES 2013, Huawei Ascend W1 is not exactly a powerhouse of features, it has a screen with 233 ppi pixel density and a dual –core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor which  doesn’t give it edge over other competitors.  But yes a 5 MP rear facing camera and a .3 MP front facing camera sure make it s keeper.  The phone doesn’t doses off soon as it has 1950mAh battery and you could put a lot of content in there, thanks to 32 GB micro SD slot.

In the interim, the Nokia Lumia 620 is certainly some piece of technology with 246 ppi pixel density, a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8227 and  Adreno 305 GPU which makes it a graphic wonder. To add to it comes with 64 GB storage (micro SD slot) and a 5 MP camera which takes videos in 720p at 30 fps.… 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.
