Nokia Lumia and HTC 8X are the recent phones launched by the Nokia and HTC respectively. Those who are in confusion or undecided on which one is the better in Windows8 smartphones, let us see the hardware comparison of these two gadgets.
Firstly, The Nokia Lumia – here we are considering the Nokia Lumia 920 in this review to compare with HTC 8X- this phone has and overall dimension of 130.3×70.8×10.7 mm and weighing around 185 grams is quite a sturdy and bulky one compared to the HTC 8X with almost similar dimensions yet weighing only 130 grams. Hopefully, lightweight phone lovers can consider this point.
The screens of the Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC 8X are 4”, both giving a superior HD quality video display. Both handsets have a strong glass on their display screens so the users don’t have to worry about any scratches on the screen as they have Corning Gorilla Glass 2 at rescue.
Now coming to the processing speeds of the HTC 8X and Nokia Lumia 920, both these phones use a Qualcomm based Snapdragon S4 Processor which is a Dual core 1.5GHz processor which is very fast for the users multi tasking requirements.
Think about the memory for storage in Nokia Lumia 920, it comes with an internal memory of 1000MB and is also expandable to 32GB in Skydrive format, whereas HTC 8X has just 16GB of internal memory this is a place where this Windows 8 phone would be falling behind. The batteries of the phones last quite long where the Nokia Lumia 920 has a 2000mAh battery and HTC 8X having an 1800mAh battery, yet both giving almost the same working durations.
One noticeable feature of the segment of battery is that the Nokia Lumia 920 is having a unique feature of charging wirelessly, which the Nokia seems to be marketing a lot out of this special feature. The Windows 8 phones, Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC 8X are WiFi enabled for easier access of Internet through external supplies.
Coming to entertainment segment both the phones support almost all major formats of audio and video files. But quality wise, the HTC is boasting to be the only Windows phone with Beats Audio enhancements. And also the camera, both the Windows 8 smartphones are having 8-megapixel cameras, but the HTC 8X claims to have the widest coverage angle than any other smartphone in any segment. This is a double bogey for the HTC 8X over Nokia Lumia 920.
HTC 8X is priced to be just above Rs.33000 and the Nokia Lumia 920 is priced above Rs.36000. so we can now understand that these both Windows 8 phones are heavily priced. But claiming all the features and all the performances, HTC 8X and Nokia Lumia 920 are no less to each other giving tough competition to choose the best of these both. Nokia has taken the range of Lumia series as a prestige as it is loosing its market share in smartphones segment and HTC is determined to increase its share. But ultimately there is only one winner and that would be HTC 8X because of its price, camera and the must mentioned feature of Beats Audio. But Nokia Lumia is no less as there is a new innovation of Wireless charging coming up with this windows 8 smartphone.
