Our winner so far: The GS3 offer the largest screen, but in terms of clarity, the Nokia Lumia 920 theoretically takes this round for its high pixel density and antiglare properties, followed by the iPhone 5, which we already know is excellent. Camera prowessThis is a tough call since all three phones bring their A-game here. The iPhone has set the benchmark in terms of camera phone performance for quite a while and the improvements to the iPhone 5's imaging system will no doubt cement its lead agains the Lumia 920 and the GS3. These include improved low-light performance and a new panorama shooting mode that catches up to Android.
Of course, Android devices in many cases surpass the iPhone, Samsung's Galaxy S3 has a sensor that offers the same 8-megapixel resolution as the iPhone 5, plus it features tons of fancy shooting modes like panorama and multishot burst mode, Apple's new iPhone lets you take photos while you're shooting video, a feature Google introduced in Android 4.0 9 months back, The Nokia Lumia 920 is the real dark horse in the smartphone camera race, On paper, its 8.7-megapixel camera and PureView technology challenges the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S3 with sharper photo resolution strongfit designers series hard shell case for apple iphone 6 and 6s - allium ditsy by rosie simons and processing, It also will be able to run special apps within the camera application itself, allowing you to upgrade its functionality greatly over time -- at least that's the theory..
Our winner so far: We've seen the iPhone 5's camera in action, but we still haven't had a chance to compare its camera to either of the other two phones. The automatically-adjusting low-light capabilities of the iPhone 5 especially trumped those of the iPhone 4S, which was already the industry standard. We have yet to see how they all perform in different lighting scenarios. Yet if previous shoot-outs are any indication, each phone will persevere over the others depending on the category. Because Nokia's Lumia 920 is still unproven and the Lumia 900's camera wasn't awe-inspiring, we're tempering our hopes with doubts.
LTE and network promiseA 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, Our winner so far: Samsung strongfit designers series hard shell case for apple iphone 6 and 6s - allium ditsy by rosie simons phones have long been LTE-capable and the Nokia Lumia 920 will be Espoo's second LTE phone, Apple is just now catching up, Battery lifeNokia 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..
Of course, if you're constantly using battery-draining features like S-Voice on the Galaxy S3, or streaming video, no phone will last as long as you'd like. Our winner so far: It's hard to say since we haven't put the Lumia 920 to the test, but the Galaxy S3 is a sure bet for most, plus it offers a removable battery. So far, the iPhone 5 has also lasted a full day on a single charge. We'll conduct formal battery drain tests on the iPhone 5 soon. NFCApple's iPhone 5 needed a few features to shore up some weak spots: a larger screen, LTE, and, to a lesser extent, NFC. It got the first two, but Apple didn't mention anything about NFC for the iPhone 5.
