Apple has announced the new iPhone 5 and just last week Nokia announced is new flagship the Lumia 920. So how do these phones compare, and which one should you get?
Probably the biggest difference of course is the ecosystems. You have Apple's iOS vs. Microsoft's Windows Phone 8. It is a difference of 600,000 apps but Microsoft is adding apps quickly and most of the important ones are there or are coming this year. Instagram is promised shortly for example. But if Apps are your thing, the iPhone is always the safe bet. The iPhone is also thinner and weighs quite a bit less. So what does the Lumia 920 bring to the table? First and foremost its the revolutionary PureView Camera. Largest sensor, best aperture, and for the first time in a smartphone we have hardware image stabilization. This will create blur free photos even in low light situations. It will also improve your videos. But also a first is Nokia's PureMotion HD+ display. Beating out the iPhone Retina display not only in pixel per inch but features such as Nokia's ClearBlack, industry leading 60hz refresh rates to create the most stunning smooth display. In addition you have NFC and wireless charging with the Lumia 920. And an overall better battery. Look at the chart below, but for most users I recommend the Lumia 920. The iPhone is out this month with the Lumia 920 expected in November.
