Nokia says the Lumia 920 is better than the iPhone 5 in its camera, screen and design
With the iPhone 5 coming out tomorrow, the competition has its knives out. Samsung is already taking its shots and now Nokia is showing off why it thinks the Lumia 920 is better than the latest Apple smartphone.
I think Nokia is also doing a good job of pointing out the differences between the iPhone 5 and the Lumia 920 in the infographic below. I don't think this will impact the sales of the iPhone 5, but it's a good way for Nokia to get out its message.
Nokia is saying that it will have a better camera, screen and included accessories than the iPhone 5 and that's probably true to a certain extent. Despite the silly fake ads it released, the Lumia 920 will have an 8.7-megapixel camera with PureView technology that could produce better low-light shots than the iPhone 5. We'll have to compare the two for ourselves to really decide, though.
The Lumia 920 will also have a 4.5-inch display and that will be larger and have a higher resolution than the 4-inch screen on the iPhone 5. You may prefer the more pixels per inch on the iPhone 5's Retina Display, but the Lumia 920 will also be able to recognize touch inputs, even if you're wearing gloves or tapping on it with your nail. That's a very small but potentially very cool advantage.
The Nokia Lumia 920 will also have wireless charging, which is something the iPhone 5 lacks. I do think Nokia is barking up the wrong tree by touting accessories, though, because even though the iPhone 5 will have the new Lightning port, I'm sure that we'll see a wave of accessories for it in the not-too-distant future.
