Nokia Lumia 900 has successfully established its fame in the last couple of months for the combination of its stellar design and killer $100 on-contract price. Just as anticipated, Nokia Lumia 900 has been considered as the best among all Windows Phone smartphones. But in the nowadays’ telecommunication industry, there never lacks of new challenges and competitors. And in the smartphone market, the new released and yet long anticipated Samsung Galaxy S III, which comes fully loaded with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, 4G LTE/HSPA+ 42 capability, a zippy dual-core processor, and a strong 8-megapixel camera, is undoubtedly a strong challenger to Nokia Lumia 900. Even though these two handsets are running on completely different platforms, we could make a comparison between them in various aspects to see which one is performing in all categories to come out on the top, including: appearance design, screen display, processor, memory, camera, multimedia, battery, connectivity, etc.
Appearance design: We all know that the first impression makes a ton of differences. That’s the appearance design. Compared with Samsung Galaxy S III, which is technically lighter and thinner, Nokia Lumia 900 is original and fresh. Besides that, the unibody polycarbonate construction design of Lumia 900 feels considerably sturdier than Samsung Galaxy S III. In common, the two handsets feature capacitive buttons below their displays, though the Galaxy S III incorporates a physical home button. Other features Samsung Galaxy S III over Nokia Lumia 900 include: the physical buttons clinging around the sides, video-out functionality with the aid of a special MHL adapter, removable battery, and expandable memory via its microSD card slot.
Screen display: This may become very easy for us to make comparison. The Samsung Galaxy S III has a quite noticable 4.8” HD (720 x 1280) Super AMOLED display, though, the Lumia 900’s 4.3” WVGA (480 x 800) ClearBlack AMOLED display is still nice and pretty. Obviously, you can enjoy better experience to watch videos on Samsung Galaxy S III or play games on Samsung Galaxy S III than that of Nokia Lumia 900.
Processor: The Galaxy S III features a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor with a whopping 2GB of RAM, while the Lumia 900 has single-core 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU with 512MB of RAM. This should indicate the former one should perform better. However, when it comes down to it, they perform very similar to one another, as every operation is accompanied with fluid movements and instantaneous actions.
Memory: The Nokia Lumia 900 has the higher free storage capacity at 13.61GB, while Samsung Galaxy S III only gets 12.05GB. But the fact is that the latter offers expandable storage via its microSD card slot.
Camera: Both smartphones feature an 8-megapixel camera, which provides quite similar still image quality for two devices. But in real test, the Galaxy S III is more capable at shooting in macro and low lighting. When coming to the HD video recording, Galaxy S III is obvious the winner with its 1080P video recording, distinct details, moderate exposure, clear audio recording, and neutral color reproduction.
Multimedia: The Zune experience on the Lumia 900 manages to stand out more than the static presentation of the TouchWiz music player on Samsung Galaxy S III. But with a larger screen display, Samsung Galaxy S III produces more adorable experience for you to watch HD videos. This doesn’t mean it could not provide good experience for you to watch videos or enjoy DVD movies on Nokia Lumia 900. Everyone would become hard to refuse a sizable device for wonderful video experience.
Connectivity: Both smartphones support 4G network connectivity. But when put into real testing, the Samsung Galaxy S III performs better to have perfect browsing experience that nearly reaches desktop experience. These two GSM devices are compatible with a wide array of GSM networks internationally. And they feature the typical set of connectivity features, but Galaxy S III trumps the Lumia 900 with Bluetooth 3.0, NFC, and 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi.
Battery: Nokia Lumia 900 defeats Samsung Galaxy S III in the battery life department. Specifically, Nokia Lumia 900 supports up to 1 ½ days normal use, while the Galaxy S III is only able to a solid one day of normal usage.Google+
