Last week, Apple released its new phone– iPhone 5, it’s almost same as we imagined before, you can see our previous blog “What will iPhone 5 be?” , honestly speaking, not surprise found, no change made, and no innovation introduced at all.
Now, there are many other wonderful smartphones in the market beside Apple iPhone 5, such as Samsung Galaxy S 3 , Nokia Windows Phone 8 Lumia 920 and HTC One X which fade no way to iPhone 5 in specs and even user experience. Today, we would like to make a comparison among Apple iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S 3 and Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC One X, spec to spec, to let you know which one meets your requirements most.
Operating system Comparsion：
The new iPhone 5 features iOS 6 - the next generation version of Apple’s mobile operating system. Compared with the old iOS 5, it adds Passbook – Apple’s new e-tickets app – plus FaceTime over 3G (depending on the network) and Apple’s own mobile apps including turn-by-turn navigation .
Both the HTC One X and the Galaxy S3 run Android 4 with custom user interfaces; Touchwiz on the S3 and Sense 4.0 on the One X. Samsung has said that it plans to update the S3 to 4.1 (Jelly Bean) before the end of the year. HTC has also promised its arrival, but has yet to name a timeframe.
LTE and network promise:
A this point, LTE on the iPhone 5 was an inevitability, and a feature that’s been in the hopper for some time. Verizon has already sworn that all its new smartphones will have LTE, and AT&T and Sprint are expanding their respective networks.
NFC, is a set of standards for smartphones and similar devices to establish radio communication with each other by touching them together or bringing them into close proximity, usually no more than a few centimetres. Present and anticipated applications include contactless transactions, data exchange, and simplified setup of more complex communications such as Wi-Fi. Communication is also possible between an NFC device and an unpowered NFC chip, called a “tag”.
This technolgy is more and more popular, and most smartphones become support it. You can see Samsung Galaxy S 3, Nokia Lumia 920, HTC One X all support it, while iPhone 5 can’t, even never mention it on its release. How incredible!
Battery life: Nokia plans to equip its Lumia 920 with a 2,000 mAh battery, which should provide a good amount of run time, especially considering that Windows Phone has traditionally been a very economical operating system. Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy S3 comes with a slightly larger 2,100 mAh battery that lasted for well over 9 hours playing video. Apple is coy on the iPhone 5′s capacity, but promises that its will offer 10 hours of video playback and 8 hours of Web surfing over LTE.
We don’t give any recommendation on the phone smartphones, as “Love at its birth, and hate to grieve.” You can choose yourself.
