iPhone 5 has made its way to the market recently. The phone has been officially launched and will soon be available for purchase as well. But there are rumors that phone has nothing new to boast about. Adding, one of the hot cakes of discussion was Nokia Lumia 900 prior to its launch. There were a lot innovative ideas culminated into this product. Let’s see how long these rumors survive.
DESIGN AND OVERVIEW:
Going true with the rumors, iPhone 5 is thinner and taller than the iPhone 4S. The new iPhone is 18 percent thinner with 0.37 inch thickness and also 20 percent lighter for a total of 3.95 ounces. Also, the glass back is replaced with a metal one corresponding to the fact that many users broke their iPhones accidently. Comparing with Nokia Lumia 900, the smart phone is praiseful for its beautiful design and polycarbonate body. But it is a bulky phone weighing 5.64 ounce and having a thickness of 0.45 inches.
SCREEN AND DISPLAY:
With the new iPhone 5, the Retina display has expanded from 3.5 inches to 4 inches at 326 pixels per inch. With a resolution of 1,136×640, the phone offers a wider aspect ratio of 16:9, which will result in greater space for messaging and apps as well. Apple has also promised for wide-screen movies, owing to 44 percent more color saturation.
On the other hand, Nokia Lumia 900 comes with a 4.3-inch capacitive touch screen with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. The screen is raised slightly above the body to give an impression as if it is coming out to you. Also, to keep the phone display bright in sunlight, the phone manufacturers have developed ClearBlack technology, for adjusting brightness, color and contrast details by using a polarizing filter to cut off the reflections while the Corning Gorilla Glass protects the AMOLED display.
With iPhone 4S proving to be a milestone in the camera industry for phones, iPhone 5 with its 8 mega pixel camera’s improved low light image clarity and panaroma shooting mode has a lot to offer to the fans. Nokia, with its 8MP auto focus camera lens with Nokia’s customary Carl Zeiss optics next to an unobtrusive dual LED flash is good but not brilliant. The image quality in low light is not up to the mark and the image bursts out on zooming.
iPhone 5 is Verizon and Sprint LTE supported. But due to limitation of the technology, both these networks cannot handle voice and data at the same time. The only way to do both is to be on Wi-Fi. Nokia is also limited to EE LTE for now and the services are yet to be announced by the company.
Nokia Lumia 920 is equipped with a 1,830 mAh battery can provide a video playback for 7 hours. The capacity of battery of iPhone 5 is yet to be announced but the apple officials claim it to offer a handy amount of 10 hours of video playback and 8 hours of web surfing.
NFC enables you to exchange data and allow communication between two devices with just a touch or in a close proximity. Apple’s iPhone 5 didn’t disclose about any of the availabilities of the technology and might be missing here. However, Nokia is fully supported with NFC on similar Nokia devices.
While Nokia Lumia 900 is priced at around $660 for 16 GB, iPhone comes with different price tags of $199 for 16 GB, $299 for 32 GB and $399 for 64 GB variants.
The technical specs of the iPhone 5 are yet to be announced. The phone debuts the operating system iOS 6.0 while Nokia Lumia 900 uses the Windows Phone 7.5 (tango) version. But going with the information we have, both the phones are customer specific and will share their own fans. However, Nokia with some advanced modifications might be able to raise its market value.
