The Nokia Lumia 920 vs. The HTC One X

Even though apps such as Viber for Nokia have made a lot of difference to the acceptability of Nokia Lumia 920 Phone, when it comes to Windows phones, there aren’t many people willing to give them a chance any more. After some notable failures, most people seem doubtful that Windows can offer a stable and easily usable mobile operating system. And this is a shame, since Microsoft’s new effort (in conjunction with Nokia), the Lumia 920, is actually a pretty nice phone. It’s got some high specs, and is a huge leap forward from the previous Windows effort. In fact, the Lumia even stands up well to one of our favorite new phones, the HTC One X, and considering how great the HTC is, that’s saying a lot. However, putting them head to head, who comes out on top? The systems are actually relatively similar, with more or less the same specs. So it’s going to come down to the details…

Where the Nokia Lumia 920 Shines…

So, the stand out details on the Lumia… We’re going to start with the camera, which is not only easier to use than the one on the HTC, but is also higher resolution. The Nokia Lumia 920 cam comes in at 8.7 MP, compared to the HTC’s 8 MP. This means ten per cent more detail on your photos, which is important if you plan on enlarging or printing them; the Lumia does take nice pics.

The other thing is the screen. The Lumia’s screen is higher resolution, you get around ten per cent ore resolution on the Lumia, meaning the picture quality is a tad brighter and clearer. You also get higher PPI (pixels per inch), making the display a little crisper and seemingly more focused.

Where the One X Shines…

Okay, you get higher maximum data speeds. That isn’t necessarily an advantage though, as most people’s data speeds are capped by their phone providers, so you probably won’t be reaching your max data speed anyway.

There is quite a large size difference as well, since the Nokia Lumia 920 is actually quite a chunky feeling phone. The HTC comes in around thirty per cent lighter, twenty per cent thinner, and twenty per cent smaller in general. That’s a pretty big difference when you’re talking about something that you’re going to be carrying in your pocket all day.

Finally, there’s the thing that we love about all Android phones, the ability to run multiple applications at the same time. That means that web browsing whilst on Skype is fine, you’re not going to lose your connection. We’re not sure why other operating systems just don’t do this well, but Android never lets us down, and the HTC One X is no exception.

Close, But No Cigar…

The Lumia is probably as close as we’ve ever seen to a good Windows phone. It operates at a high level, and it looks good too. However, the smoothness of the Android operating system (and the ability to run multiple apps at the same time) wins us over every time. We just can’t put the Lumia ahead of the HTC. So, not a bad effort, but the HTC One X wins this one.

Phil Turner bought a phone on the 3 Mobile network recently. It is working out very cheap to run.

Best Nokia phone has been launched and Viber is supported

In a competition of finding Best Nokia Phone of this day, you will not have to go that far. Nokia just released it’s much awaited Nokia Lumia 920 phone. The good thing for Viber fans is that Viber is fully supported on Nokia Limia920 smartphone. Nokia’s latest release is loaded with features that you already wanted. It has not picked up as much as iPhone but it is surely going to give them run for their money. Nokia Lumia 920 phone should be a little more expensive than Nokia 900 series earlier phones. Since those phones are selling for $450 on Amazon it will not be a surprise if Nokia Lumia 920 costs a little more than that. Even for $550 it will be a good alternative to Apple’s flagship iPhone smartphone.
