How The Lumia 925 Stacks Up Against The iPhone 5, Galaxy S4, HTC One [Comparison]
Nokia has this morning announced its new Lumia 925, a Windows Phone smartphone with an aluminum frame that hopes to step up Nokia’s fight against Apple and Samsung. But does the Lumia 925 really have what it takes to compete with the iPhone 5, the Galaxy S4, the HTC One, and other high-end smartphones?
We’ve put together a spec-by-spec comparison to help you decide whether Nokia’s new flagship is worth the switch to Windows Phone.
So, there you have it. If specifications are most important to you when buying a new smartphone, then the Lumia 925 isn’t going to be high on your list — not when it’s up against devices like the Galaxy S4, the HTC One, and the Sony Xperia Z. It just about does enough to battle the iPhone 5, however.
Even if you’re already a Windows Phone user, the decision to upgrade to the Lumia 925 doesn’t get any easier — particularly if you already have a Lumia 920. If you look at the comparison above, Nokia’s new handset isn’t a huge step up from its older model — they have similar processors, the same amount of RAM, and they run the same operating system.
The Lumia 925 does have a better rear-facing camera, but it has half as much storage as the Lumia 920, and there’s no microSD card slot. Arguably the biggest different between the two, then, is the Lumia 925’s new aluminum form factor.
