There is a wide range of smartphones to choose from in the US if you don’t want an Android handset. You could choose Apple. Microsoft Windows or Blackberry.

The Nokia Lumia 920 is a device that is new to the smartphone market and at it has been making the media and consumers gasp thanks to the stunning looks and the camera that is top of the range.

So if you don’t want a device that is based on Android then you could take a look at the Nokia Lumia 920 or the Apple iPhone 5. Both of the handsets have specs that are similar and they are matched. However the Nokia Lumia 920 is 3mm thicker and slightly bigger overall than what the Apple iPhone 5 happens to be. It comes with a display of 4.5 inches in comparison to the display of the Apple iPhone 5 which happens to be 4 inches.

They have rapid dual cores along with 1GB of RAM. iOS and Windows are both stable, they are also user friendly and Windows Phone 8 is a refreshing change. iOS is now into its 6th generation and perhaps now is the time for things to change. For now the Apple App Store does beat the Windows Market Place.

When it comes down to cameras the Nokia Lumia 920 has the PureView 8.7 megapixel camera and this has to be compared to the 8 megapixel camera of the Apple iPhone 5. Both of the devices cameras can take excellent photos and in low light the Nokia Lumia 920 stands out. It also takes great video too.
