Samsung Galaxy S3 vs Nokia Lumia 920: final thoughts

The Nokia Lumia 920 is a very impressive device and it does make Windows Phone 8 look very tempting. Is some ways it blows the Samsung Galaxy S3 out of the water, however for the most part both of the devices are equally matched.

The Nokia Lumia 920 comes with a camera that is superior to that of the Samsung Galaxy S3 and it has a better exterior build than the Samsung device. On the whole the display is also better, but on saying this, the difference between the two of them is not too big.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 wins when it comes to offering storage choices, it offers better multi-tasking and it has the more dynamic ecosystem when it comes to apps.

The Windows Phone 8 OS does have lots of appealing qualities, one of these being presentation and another is the People Hub. However it is lacking when it comes to apps.

The Lumia 920 does offer everything needed to tackle smartphone tasks; however it lacks diversity and choice.
