Three phone manufacturers that expect to do well this Christmas are Nokia, Apple and Samsung. So which of these three and their star flagships would be your choice for finding under your tree on Christmas morning? The Samsung Galaxy S3, iPhone 5 or Nokia Lumia 920?
Samsung Galaxy S3 vs Nokia Lumia 920 vs iPhone 5: ultimate Xmas gift down under
The Nokia Lumia 920 comes with a camera of 8.7 megapixels and it has a superb design. It weighs in at 185 grams, which is heavier than the Samsung Galaxy S3 at 133 grams and the iPhones 5 at 113 grams. However on the plus side it has 332ppi, which is better than what the iPhone 5 and the S3 offer.Another thing to consider when choosing a device is the operating system. When it comes down to operating systems, WP8 is currently at third place but it has one of the best interaces we’ve seen to date. In fact we would say that it is easier to pick up than even iOS which is as streamlined as they get. The Nokia Lumia 920 is available through Telstra exclusively for now.
If you want the iPhone 5 the best price happens to be in Australia. Virgin Mobile offers it for $47 a month over two years for a total of $1,128 on their Big Plan 29. This happens to be lower than you can get it for it in the UK or US and you don’t have to pay anything out upfront. The iPhone 5 is now readily available thanks to the shortage of stock being worked out here in Australia.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 comes with basically everything that the iPhone 5 has to offer in terms of hardware but is an Android. So the choice between the handsets is down to whether you want iOS or Android. Of course the displays are different in size and this will be the deciding factor for some people too. Optus has the Samsung Galaxy S3 for around $51 per month and if you are with Telstra it will cost you $60 on the Every Day Connect plan.
So which of these top handsets would you like to unwrap on Christmas morning, the iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S3 or the Nokia Lumia 920?
