Difference between Nokia Lumia 820 and XOLO X1000

Key difference: One of the first smartphones under the brand is the Nokia Lumia 820. The Nokia Lumia 820 was first of the first phones to be developed running on Windows Phone 8. It was launched in November 2012, as a slightly cheaper alternative to the Nokia 920. XOLO has launched the XOLO X1000, an Intel-based smartphone. The XOLO x1000 runs on a single-core Intel Atom Processor Z2480.

Nokia is a multinational communications and information technology corporation based in Helsinki, Finland. Nokia’s phones have been famously known as being simple and durable. In 2012, it was the world’s second largest mobile phone maker by unit sales, following Samsung. However, the sales of Nokia have been decreasing as more and more of the market shifts towards smartphones such as iPhones and Androids. In an attempt to offset their decreasing sales, Nokia tied up with Microsoft to release its own line of smartphones, the Nokia Lumia running on Windows Phone Operating Software.

One of the first smartphones under the brand is the Nokia Lumia 820. The Nokia Lumia 820 was first of the first phones to be developed running on Windows Phone 8. It was launched in November 2012, as a slightly cheaper alternative to the Nokia Lumia 920. It has a 4.3 inch display with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. It is powered by a Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon Dual-core 1.5 GHz Krait processor and a 1 GB RAM. The phone has 8 GB internal memory and an external memory expandable up to 64 GB.

Nokia Lumia 820 features an 8 MP primary camera with autofocus and dual-LED flash, as well as Carl Zeiss optics. It also has a VGA secondary front-facing camera for self photo shots and video calling. The phone is available in a variety of bright colors, such as black, gray, red, yellow, white, blue, and violet. In fact, the phone comes with back panels in these colors allowing the user to change the phone’s color every few days.

The newest and most distinguishing feature of the Lumia 820 is that the phone is capable of wireless charging. However, the wireless charging mat is not included with the phone and has to be purchased separately.

However, the phone has been criticized as being chunky and heavy. Another issue with the phone, in fact all the Windows phones, is that it comes with the Internet Explorer browser built-in, which can be quite lagging at times, and the phones do not support any other browsers. Furthermore, the collection of apps available on Windows is quite limited, especially as compared to the apps available for Android and Apple.

XOLO is a subsidy of Lava. XOLO has launched the XOLO X1000, an Intel-based smartphone. The XOLO x1000 runs on a single-core Intel Atom Processor Z2480. It has a processing speed of 2 GHz due to its hyper threading capabilities, as well as a 1 GB RAM. It is a single-SIM phone with 8 GB of internal memory. It comes with Android OS v4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich), which is a bit outdated, but the company has promised an update by the end of 2013. The phone also features a 4.7 inch Sharp TFT LCD with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. The phone hosts an 8 MP primary camera with burst mode, and a 1.3 MP secondary camera.

The information for the detailed table about the two phones has been taken from the Nokia website, cnet.co.uk, the XOLO website, fonearena.com and thinkdigit.com and GSMArena.com.
