A few days ago, Nokia unveiled their brand new smartphone (or camera phone), the Lumia 1020. It’s rumored that Apple are going to release the iPhone 6 in the fall so let’s compare the 2 phones and see who’s got what and who comes out on top:
Apparently, although not confirmed, the iPhone 6 will be the first to have a Sharp IGZO display. IGZO technology uses far less power, is far more responsive and a lot thinner than current LCD. No word on the screen size although rumor has it, it will be between 4 and 5.8”.
The Lumia 1020 will have a 4.5” AMOLED display, Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and a resolution of 768 x 1280 at 332 ppi.
The Lumia will have a 1.5GHz dual core Krait Qualcomm CPU along with an Adreno 225 GPU. It will have 2GB RAM and 32GB storage space. There will not be any allowance for removable media though so no increase in storage space.
The iPhone 6 will probably have an A7 quad-core. It will most likely have 1GB RAM and will have a choice of at least 16/32/64GB storage, possibly up to 128GB. As with the Lumia there will be no removable media.
The Lumia sports an immense 41 megapixel camera that has Carl Zeiss lens, autofocus, optical image stabilization, both Xenon and LED flash. It will also have a sensor of 1/1.5”, PureView, geo tagging and all the other normal features of a camera on a phone, The front camera will be 1.2 megapixel.
The iPhone 6 will have a better camera than the iPhone 5 but its likely to be 12 megapixel. It will be upgraded to have better low-light capture, better software and all the other features the iPhone 5 currently has. It will also shoot video in 1080p. The secondary camera will probably e 2 megapixel.
The iPhone may be carbon fiber and aluminum, making it quite a bit lighter. It’s expected to be up to the usual Apple class of looking stunning. The Lumia has a polycarbonate case but is very well-built. It even looks good considering the massive camera it features.
The iPhone 6 will have iOS 7 on it, with its vibrant colors, new design and the addition of some nice new features. The Lumia is going to be run on Windows Phone 8, a nice stable OS that offers a user-friendly experience without being complicated.
The winner ? What do you think ?
