The Nokia Lumia 900 is without a doubt the hottest new Windows Phone ever released. The Samsung Galaxy S3 is the much anticipated third release from Samsung. Which phone would you choose? Let’s take a look with a side by side specs comparison of both popular smartphone.
Samsung Galaxy S3 vs Nokia Lumia 900
The Nokia Lumia 900 of course run the Windows Phone operating system while the Galaxy S3 will have Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Both are excellent operating systems in their own right and of all specs, this one is difficult to compare given that it boils down to being a matter of personal preference.
Moving on, the Lumia 900 looks stunning and is a sleek device with superb design but lacks the specs of the Samsung Galaxy S3. The Galaxy S3 on the other hand has had more talk about the specs than its somewhat disappointing design.
One of the anticipated factors of the Samsung Galaxy S3 is the 4.8 inch Super AMOLED screen which gives HD in a resolution of 1280x720p. The Nokia Lumia 900 is not far behind with a 4.3-inch screen which is also an AMOLED display, but only 480×800 with 217ppi.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 will come with a 1.4GHz quad-core processor in Europe while the Nokia Lumia is powered by a 1.4GHz single core processor. The rear cameras on both phones are 8 megapixels with the Samsung taking the edge with dual LED flash and the Nokia having only a single LED flash. RAM wise both sit at 1GB, both have front-facing cameras and overall good build quality (contrary to popular belief, the Samsung Galaxy S3 is not made of plastic but polycarbonate instead).
Choosing which phone to purchase may actually come down to design versus power. The Samsung Galaxy S3 is a clear winner when it comes to specifications, while the Lumia 900 is a winner in regards to its design. Software wise, the Windows Marketplace has less apps than Android, and you can also expect less available third-party accessories for the Nokia Lumia 900 than the S3.
