Difference between Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC One

Key difference: One of the first smartphones under the brand is the Nokia Lumia 920. The Nokia Lumia 920 was one of the first phones to be developed running on Windows Phone 8. It was launched in November 2012 as its flagship phone. HTC launched its flagship phone HTC One in March 2013 with a brand new Qualcomm quad-core processor. It is expected to give direct competition to iPhone and Galaxy S3.

Nokia is a Finland-based multinational communications and information technology corporation. 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 920. The Nokia Lumia 920 was one of the first phones to be developed running on Windows Phone 8. It was launched in November 2012 as its flagship phone. At the same time, Nokia launched Nokia Lumia 820, as a slightly cheaper alternative to the Nokia Lumia 920.

Nokia Lumia 920 has a 4.5 inch display with a resolution of 768 x 1280 pixels. It is powered by a Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon Dual-core 1.5 GHz Krait and a 1 GB RAM. The phone has 8 GB internal memory and an external memory expandable up to 64 GB. It features an 8 MP primary camera with a resolution of 3264 x 2448 pixels. It also has a 1.3 MP front-facing secondary camera.

The phone is available in a variety of bright colors, such as black, gray, red, yellow, and white. The newest and most distinguishing feature of the Lumia 920 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.

The device has been criticized as being heavy and bulky. 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.

HTC launched its flagship phone HTC One in March 2013 with a brand new Qualcomm quad-core processor. It is expected to give direct competition to iPhone and Galaxy S3.

In terms of hardware and software, HTC One sports a 4.7 inch Super LCD3 screen, with Full HD1080p, 468 PPI and corning gorilla glass 2. The HTC One comes with Android v4.1.2 Jelly Bean that is upgradable to v4.2.2. The case is an all-aluminum frame with an antenna built into its backing. It includes a 1.7 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, Adreno 320 GPU and 2 GB DDR2. The phone is available with non-expandable, 32 or 64GB internal capacity. It offers a 4 megapixel 2688 x 1520 pixels primary camera with autofocus, LED flash and BSI sensor, along with a 2.1 MP, [email protected], HDR secondary camera.

The main feature is the new pixilation system that is opted in the primary camera of the phone, which provides each pixel size of 2.0 µm and sensor size of 1/3'. The One also includes a new camera app known as ‘Zoe’, which records a short video alongside every photo taken and allows the resulting photos and videos to be automatically combined and synchronized with music to produce a multimedia presentation known as a Zoe.

The One also offers a new feature on the home screen known as the BlinkFeed. This is a newsfeed that automatically upgrades every two hours if connected with a mobile service or more frequently when connected via WiFi. The BlinkFeed takes up the main home screen and cannot be removed, resulting in the home screen as not being as customizable as in the previous phones. The price of the phone has not yet been released.
