Technology is a free flowing concept that doesn't really an end. And it's free flowing, it doesn't stop for anyone with new innovations being made almost every day. Most of these innovations, of course, are currenlty happening in the smartphone sector with new devices with heightened specifications and features arriving almost every day.
While the mobile phone scene in the Indian domestic market is currently one of the hottest prospect, as far as trade and economy are concerned, it can anyway be seen how the market also has a host of manufacturers to compliment its overall importance.
There have been a host of devices that have been launched into the market to date, but two recent such smart devices that caught our attention are the Nokia-made Lumia 930 and the highly touted Samsung Galaxy S5.
As of now, the Samsung Galaxy S5 release date is quickly approaching with the Android-powered device currently awaiting worldwide release on April 11th. The Nokia Lumia 930 on the other hand, is also set for a release in June, running the new Windows Phone 8.1 operating system.
And while these are just early days, it can be assumed that both these devices have the capability of making some noise in the market. And if you indeed have plans on investing on any of the devices, you might as well make a detailed comparison between the two before investing.
So let's take a look at the specifications comparison between the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the Nokia Lumia 930.
This is probably the biggest difference between the two since both of them offer entirely different eco-systems to work with within the device.
While the Nokia Lumia 930, as we earlier stated, is set to become the first phone to come running the Windows Phone 8.1 platform, the Samsung Galaxy S5 is set to offer the latest Android KitKat offering out of the box.
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 Samsung Galaxy S5, comparatively, comes with a slightly more 5.1-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touch screen, while rendering 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution. The device's overall dimensions measure up to 142 x 72.5 x 8.1 mm, with the device also being comparatively lighter, weighing in at just 145 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 Samsung Galaxy S5, on the other hand, sports a lesser primary 16-megapixel camera, sporting a pixel resolution of 5312 x 2988 pixels, with autofocus and LED flash. The device also has a secondary 2-megapixel camera on board that's more than enough for conducting video chats.
Going by the kind of engines phones come running these days, it's no surprise that both the Nokia Lumia 930 and the Samsung Galaxy S5 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 Samsung counterpart powers up the Galaxy S5 via a octa core processor Adonis Prime2 (Quad 1.9GHz + Quad 1.3GHz) + XMM6360.
While the Nokia-made Lumia 930 juices up the Windows Phone 8.1-powered device via a 2420 mAh battery, the Samsung Galaxy S5 comes sporting a greater 2800 mAh battery.
As of now, both the devices are awaiting an official price tag from their respective manufacturers. So we will keep a check on how the devices will be eventually marketed.
With each passing year, Samsung introduces a new variant of the its Galaxy flagship with new features and specifications. And it goes without saying that every year it recieves a lot of recognition both from the tech world and fans apart. This year, as well, we are expecting the same.
But the Nokia Lumia 930, running the highly talked about Windows Phone 8.1, is also setting up to compete against all the big names in the market. However, if users can look past its "not Android" tag for a while, the Nokia Lumia 930 can be a really good buy. By our guesses, the Lumia 930 might just sell out a bit more thanks to all those of you intrigued to find about the new operating system it is running.
