Mac vs PC, Intel vs AMD, Microsoft vs Google, Nvidia vs ATI. There is no shortage of epic rivalries in the technology industry. But the battle between smartphone giants for dominance in the international market is one of the roughest of the lot.
Nokia’s Windows Phone is improving with the introduction of new Nokia Lumia 930. However, it’s a tough road ahead to accomplish the chequered flag. With Android has tons of great phones, including the Samsung Galaxy S5, and Apple’s flagship iPhone 5S is still a favourite, it’s important and tricky that how Lumia 930 will stack up against the flagship phones of other operating systems. Below we explain how the battle between their latest benchmark unfolds.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 and Nokia Lumia 930 are easier to compare in processor category since both rely on the power of a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The Galaxy S5 has the latest model, while the Lumia 930 has the slightly older one. The Galaxy S5 will run faster thanks to its newer hardware. However, the Apple iPhone 5S is still the only device with a 64-bit architecture thanks to the chipset in the device. The processor does make a difference in this device and a built-in dedicated motion processor is an added bonus.
When it come to cameras, the iPhone 5S has the most basic camera by the specs but it still yields solid results despite the numbers not being as impressive. The Galaxy S5 has an improved 16-megapixel lens, part of a new push from the manufacturer to compete in this category. As we’ve come to expect from Nokia, the Lumia 930 features an impressive camera. Lenses have become a major selling and talking point for Nokia when it comes to its smartphones, and this device is no exception. The 20-megapixel PureView camera obviously jumps off the spec sheet as the biggest.
The story the specs tell is that these smartphones have their own specialties. Apple’s iOS makes the iPhone one of the easiest devices to pick up and immediately feel absorbed in and features a powerful processing chip, the Samsung Galaxy S5 is packed with features that do a little bit of everything, and the Nokia Lumia 930 has a lens that would make any photography look splendid. And of course, there’s the whole issue of operating system. Get your hands on each before you make your decision. For me, Samsung Galaxy S5 is an amazing phone.
