The smartphone developers never fail to surprise us. Now there are several handsets that come with futuristic features and excellent specifications to woo the buyers across the world. This year we have a even bigger choice to make -- Samsung Galaxy S4, Nokia Lumia 920, Blackberry Z10 and the Apple iPhone 5 (the only one that was released last year), which to buy?
Among the 4 smartphones, Samsung's new Galaxy S4, which looks much the same as last year's Galaxy S3, is the last to hit the market with the US release data on 14, March. To give all of you a clear picture of these phones, I write this comparison post. Hopefully it will give you some help on which to choose.
S4 did the smallest change of the looks. It hasn't been updated much from the S3's look. Guess many Galaxy fans will be disappointed. Crucially, it keeps the plastic construction -- something of a contentious point for those who argued the S3 felt cheap. iPhone 5 uses metal chassis, which feel very classy to hold and quite a lot more sturdy. The Lumia 920 has a one-piece polycarbonate body with rounded edges, which also feels more solid than the Galaxy S3 did.
iPhone 5 still use a single home button at the bottom on the front, a feature that prevails on all the iPhone models. But the iPhone 5 is longer and thinner than its predecessors in appearance.
Samsung Galaxy S4 gets the largest screen among the 4 phones with iPhone 5 having the smallest 4-inch, 1,136x640, 326 pixel density screen. Samsung said that Galaxy S4 would sport a bigger 5-inch display than the S3's 4.8 inches.
While the screen of BlackBerry Z10 is 4.2-inch, 1,280x768 pixel resolution, 356 pixel density. The Lumia 920 has a 4.5in screen and a huge resolution of 1280x768 (roughly speaking, that's a 16:10 aspect ratio). Pixel density works out at a once-considered-outstanding 332ppi.
The Galaxy S4 boasts its astonishing eight processing core, which is double the amount you'd find on the S3, or even the any other cutting-edge smart phone right now. It's clocked at a mighty 1.6GHz too, so you can confidently expect it to output some monstrous power. The Lumia 920, meanwhile, uses a much more understated dual-core processor. There's not that much you can really do with a Windows Phone that'll stretch it though, so it's difficult to hold the weaker processor against the 920 too much. The A6 processor that powers iPhone 5 clocked in around 1GHz, and the system on a chip has three GPU cores. BlackBerry Z10 has a 1.5 GHz dual core processor.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 comes in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB models, just the same as iPhone 5. However it differs from iPhone 5 in that it has a microSD card slot that takes 64GB cards as standard.
Nokia offers the 920 with 32GB of storage (plus 7GB free with a Microsoft SkyDrive account), but despite Windows Phone 8 allowing the option of memory expansion, the Lumia 920 doesn't have a memory card slot.
The storage of BlackBerry Z10 comes 16 GB.
