The Finnish giant Nokia is no more a market leader in today's date. Its arch rivals - Samsung, Apple, and some Indian tech vendors have made Nokia a loser. Since 2011, Nokia is making handsets powered by Windows. Analysts believe that Nokia could have opted for Android over Microsoft's Windows mobile OS.
According to Gartner, Nokia slipped to tenth position in the global smartphone market. However, its devices are doing quite well in the emerging markets such as India, where the company still holds the fort.
With the launch of affordable WP8 handsets - Lumia 520, Lumia 620, and the Nokia Lumia 720, it made it possible for the Finnish giant to grow some market share in India. Last year, Nokia announced its much awaited Windows 8 powered device called Lumia 920.
It was touted as a winner in the beginning, but the post-launch response wasn't up to the mark. Surely, the coming of PureView imaging technology helped Nokia to differentiate itself from its competitors. In the meantime, the company has come up with two big handsets - Lumia 925, and Lumia 928, to further strengthen its position in the market. GizBot has come with a comparison between the Nokia Lumia 925, and last year's sleeper hit - Lumia 920. Let's groove into the feature.
Nokia Lumia 925 vs Nokia Lumia 920
The Nokia Lumia 925 has been announced by the Finnish giant on May 14 in London. The device is a mash up of polycarbonate plastic and aluminum. This is for the first time; Nokia has come up with a metal styled handset. Specs wise, the device is no different from the Nokia Lumia 920. But the Lumia 925 is rather slimmer, and lighter. Critics have called the Nokia Lumia 925 at par with HTC One, as far as camera is concerned.
Nokia manufactured Lumia 925 packs a 4.5-inch OLED display with resolution of 1280 X 768 pixels (334ppi). Nokia says the device screen should be readable under direct sunlight. On the other hand, the Nokia Lumia 920 comes with a same 4.5-inch IPS LCD display with resolution of 1280 x 768 pixels (334 ppi). The former handset weighs 139 grams, while the latter handset is a bit heavy at 189grams. OLED displays always have better reproduction than IPS screen.
In the design department, the Nokia Lumia 925 is more polished, as its outer frame is being made from aluminum. The rear back panel is still made from plastic. The Nokia Lumia 920 is completely made from polycarbonate shell. The back panel on the Lumia 920 can be used for wireless charging without any enhancements, while the Lumia 925 too comes with this option but one need to purchase special covers to get wireless charging done.
With Nokia Lumia 925, the tech vendor didn't announce a better performing processor. As usual, you will get 1.5-GHz dual -core processor coupled with 1GB of RAM. Nokia will give an option of choosing either 16GB of 32GB of internal memory, in case of Lumia 925. The company is not giving an option to increase the memory space. Both handsets use Windows Phone 8 OS.
It's All About PureView Camera
Talking about the most important and it has to PureView camera. Well, Nokia hasn't come up with a 41-mega pixel shooter yet. Stuffed with an 8.7-mega pixel rear facing camera with dual LED Flash is what you get when you purchase the Lumia 925. Nokia Smart Camera is a new application which offers same level of excitement, as Samsung had claimed during Galaxy S4 launch. There is one app called Hipstamatic Oggl, which is exclusive to Lumia 925 at the moment.
The Nokia Lumia 925 will arrive in four sizzling colors: Yellow,Red, White and Black. There are similar varieties to choose when you select the Lumia 920.
