Nokia has been in news for a number of reasons in the past. And more recently, the company managed to grab the limelight with the introduction of the new Nokia Lumia 930 with its hightened specifications and features.
The new Lumia device also comes less than a year after the launch of the Nokia Lumia 925. The new Lumia 930 was previously announced by Stephen Elop on stage at Build 2014 in San Francisco.
As of now, the new device not only carries alongside it the hopes and ambitions of Nokia, it's also the device that's meant to show off Microsoft's new Windows Phone 8.1 OS to its full potential.
So, for the time being, keeping aside all other major players in the market like Apple and Samsung, let's highlight a bit on how both these devices stand up against each other under the same roof.
Here's a detailed comparison between the specs of both the devices kept side by side.
While readers will argue that there's not much to choose fron between the devices in this respect, but, on the contrary, there is actually a lot more than it meets the eye. And most of that is made up by the presence of the Windows Phone 8.1 platform.
While the Nokia Lumia 930 is set to arrive running the latest Windows Phone version -- dubbed Windows Phone 8.1, the Lumia 925 offers Windows Phone 8 out of the box. It is to be noted that the Lumia 925 can also be upgraded to Windows Phone Black OS.
Display and Dimensions
The Nokia Lumia 930, in this regard, sports a 5-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touch screen, while rendering 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution. The device's overall dimensions measure up to 137 x 71 x 9.8 mm, and weighs in at 167 grams, which is certainly quite heavy.
The Nokia Lumia 925, comparatively, comes with a lesser 4.5-inch AMOLED capacitive touch screen, while rendering 768 x 1280 pixels resolution. The device's overall dimensions measure up to 129 x 70.6 x 8.5 mm, with the device also being comparatively lighter, weighing in at just 139 grams.
The Nokia Lumia 930, in the camera department, offers a 20-megapixel primary camera, sporting a mammoth pixel resolution of 4992 х 3744 pixels, with autofocus and dual LED flash. The device also has a secondary 1.2-megapixel camera on board that's more than enough for conducting video chats.
The Lumia 925, on the other hand, sports a lesser primary 8-megapixel camera, sporting a pixel resolution of 3264 x 2448 pixels, with autofocus and dual LED flash. The device also has a secondary 1.3-megapixel camera on board that's more than enough for conducting video chats.
Taking into consideration the kind of engines phones come running these days, it's hardly a big surprise that both the Nokia Lumia 930 and its predecessing Lumia 925 have been equipped with powerful processors for carrying out activities efficiently.
While the Nokia Lumia 930 is equipped with a 2.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, its Lumia 925 counterpart offer a dual core 1.5GHz Krait processor with Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon.
While the Nokia-made Lumia 930 juices up the Windows Phone 8.1-powered device via a 2420 mAh battery, the Lumia 925 comes sporting a lesser 2000 mAh battery.
As of now, while the new Nokia Lumia 930 is awaiting an official price tag from the manufacturer, the Lumia 925 is currently available at a price of Rs. 25,126.
While there's a lot to look forward to with both the Lumia devices from Nokia, it can be easily assumed that the Nokia Lumia 930 will be on top of the charts compared to the 925. And that will be purely because of one single reason -- the Windows Phone 8.1 offering (apart from a massive and dedicated camera).
And although there's still a lot to be found out as to how the new device turns out among the Indian customers, it can be said that the device will be a top choice if indeed users decide to go for the device.
