• iPhone 5 vs. Galaxy S3 vs. Lumia 920 – Which One is Your Cup of Tea

    Posted on September 18th, 2012 Davy | No comments

    Finally, the Apple iPhone 5 has been here for real with various wonderful features. Though it owns so many premium specs, the iPhone 5 is not the only worthwhile choice for people to choose from the existing highly developed smartphone market. Many other wonderful smartphones are here for choice, like the Samsung Galaxy S 3 and Nokia Windows Phone 8 Lumia 920, which fade no way to iPhone 5 in specs and even user experience. Today, I would like to make a comparison among Apple iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S 3 and Nokia Lumia 920, spec to spec, to let you know which one meets your requirements most and which one is your choice.

    Of course, the comparison is based on the released information of all three devices, as the iPhone 5 and Lumia 920 are still to be shipped. The comparison will focus on different aspects. Certainly, you will be given the full specs of these three smartphones at first, which is showed in the below picture:

    iPhone 5 vs. Galaxy S3 vs. Lumia 920The comparison will only display the facts and specs to you. You can decide yourself which one is better for you.

    Design and build: Apple’s aluminum-and-glass iPhone 5 retains its super-industrial aesthetic, metal buttons and all. Its new, all-metal backing could look slightly less luxe than the iPhone 4S’, but it will survive far more drops. The Nokia Lumia 920 provides various colors, yellow, red, white, black, and gray. Its polycarbonate body and rounded edges produce a punch of pop sensibility in an otherwise staid design world. It’s a good look for the phone, and a smart one that really helps Nokia stand out; however, distinctiveness and the nevertheless plastic body isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. The GS3 features appealing, but shiny, glossy plastic design. It produces quite wonderful and comfortable in-hand feel, despite its much larger size.

    Screen size and clarity: The iPhone 5′s 1,136×640 pixels on its 4-inch screen still yields 326 pixels per inch and gives the phone a 16:9 aspect ratio, while Samsung’s Galaxy S3 has the largest screen of the three, an 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED, which yields a 1,280×720-pixel resolution and a pixel density of 306 pixels per inch. Nokia Lumia 920 has a 4.5-inch Nokia PureMotion HD+ display with WXGA resolution (1,280×768 pixels). No doubt, if you want to watch HD movies on these phones or play HD video games, you will be fully fulfilled.

    Camera: Samsung’s Galaxy S3 has a sensor that offers the same 8-megapixel resolution as the iPhone 5, plus it features tons of fancy shooting modes like panorama and multishot burst mode. The Nokia Lumia 920 is the real dark horse in the smartphone camera phone arms race. On paper, its 8.7-megapixel camera and PureView technology promise better performance than both the iPhone and Galaxy S3. It also will be able to run special apps within the camera application itself, allowing you to upgrade its functionality greatly over time — at least that’s the theory.

    iPhone 5 vs. Galaxy S 3 vs. Nokia Lumia 920LTE and network promise: A this point, LTE on the iPhone 5 was an inevitability, and a feature that’s been in the hopper for some time. Verizon has already sworn that all its new smartphones will have LTE, and AT&T and Sprint are expanding their respective networks.

    NFC: Apple’s iPhone 5 needed a few features to shore up some weak spots: a larger screen, LTE, and, to a lesser extent, NFC. It got the first two, but Apple didn’t mention anything about NFC for the iPhone 5. NFC, which makes it possible to share content across phones and pay for purchases, might not be a big deal to you, but it is an entire category of software capability that’s closed on the iPhone 5.

    Battery life: Nokia plans to equip its Lumia 920 with a 2,000 mAh battery, which should provide a good amount of run time, especially considering that Windows Phone has traditionally been a very economical operating system. Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy S3 comes with a slightly larger 2,100 mAh battery that lasted for well over 9 hours playing video. Apple is coy on the iPhone 5′s capacity, but promises that its will offer 10 hours of video playback and 8 hours of Web surfing over LTE.
