If you are looking to upgrade and have not got your heart set on one particular OS, which of the devices should you go for? Windows Phone 8 and Android Jelly Bean have both got their strong points and so do the actual Nokia Lumia 920 and LG Nexus 4. Let’s take a look at both devices.

The LG Nexus 4 has Android 4.2 in the pure form and this means that it lacks the bloatware that typically comes with Android devices on carriers. The hardware packed into the device is very impressive, and more so when you take into account that the handset has a price tag of $299 and no contract.

The LG Nexus 4 has the IPS display of 4.7 inches with 320ppi and resolution of 1280 x 768 and comes with the Snapdragon S4 Pro processor along with 2GB of RAM. It has 16GB of internal storage. It doesn’t have LTE, however it does have HSPA+. The device also has a camera of 8 megapixel, NFC, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and it can be charged wirelessly. It comes in 8GB or 16GB versions.

The LG Nexus 4 is about as close to perfect as you could get in a handset, but there have been some issues with it, however on saying this, the majority of phones have issues at launch.

You may wish to choose the LG Nexus due to the 700,000 plus apps, the pure Android experience and the low price tag.

The Nokia Lumia 920 has the 4.5 inch display, which has been said to be the fastest display that on the market in terms of responsiveness. The handset comes with a dual core Snapdragon 1.5GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, a PureView camera of 8.7 megapixel, 32GB of internal storage, LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, GPS and the device can be used when wearing gloves too.

Both devices have the option to charge the handset wirelessly.

The quad core processor along with the 2GB of RAM found in the LG Nexus 4 wins on paper, however both have different operating systems and processor and RAM demands. It has been said that the Windows Phone 8 handsets have been optimised to work with this setup so you will not be able to see a difference. However if you are a speed freak then you will go for the quad core processor in Android devices.

One thing in its favor of the Nokia Lumia 920 is the camera that comes with an image stabiliser and which provides better, sharper photos than what the Nexus 4 does.

If you are a resident in the US then it has the LTE coverage on AT&T, which is excellent. The OS is customisable in terms of its tiles. However app selection is limited.

When choosing between the LG Nexus 4 and Nokia Lumia 920, consider the OS, price and whether or not you will need LTE. Both handsets are innovative otherwise.
