The three big Christmas favourites – the iPhone 5, the Nokia Lumia 920 and the Samsung Galaxy S3 – are gracing many a wish list this Christmas – which one do you want to find in your stocking?
Nokia Lumia 920 vs iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S3: best Xmas gift ideas
Nokia Lumia 920: The Nokia Lumia 920 weighs 185g, has an 8.7MP camera and looks brilliant. The Samsung Galaxy S3 is 133g, and the iPhone 5 is a wee 112g with both packing 8MP shooters. The Nokia Lumia 920 has a 332ppi screen, which beats the iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S3. As operating system is an important consideration, you should know that Windows Phone 8 is the newest OS of the trio, but it has a great UI and is easier than iOS and Android to master. This phone is available from Telstra now.
Samsung Galaxy S3: The Samsung Galaxy S3 is very popular, matching the other two on hardware, but it also has added extras like expandable storage, MHL, and the Android flexibility with customization. You’ll have to decide for yourself between iOS, Android or WP8. The other big difference between the phones is also screen size, don’t forget. Samsung Galaxy S3 can be had from $51 a month, and Telstra has it for $60 a month on its Every Day Connect plan.
iPhone 5: If you’re after an iPhone 5, then Oz has the best deals on the planet. You can snag it for $47 per month on a two-year Virgin Mobile contract ($1,128 over the two-year Big Plan 29). This is cheaper than anything you’ll get in the US or UK, and you’ll have no upfront costs. You can get the iPhone 5 from other Aussie carriers too. The iPhone 5 is the thinnest and lightest of the lot as well as the most stable in terms of software. It is also likely to get future software updates which cannot be guaranteed with the other two.
So which one of these amazing phones do you fancy this Christmas?
