Comparison, Nokia Lumia 920 vs. HTC 8X

By -

Microsoft launched its new commitment to the market within the market for mobile operating systems. And several have been companies that have opted for the new icons: Nokia and HTC are two examples. Within the new range of smartphones find terminals as interesting as Nokia Lumia 920 or HTC 8X . At first glance, the differences may seem minimal. But the reality is different between the two advanced mobile there are differences, and some very noticeable. The HTC 8X and can be obtained in Spain by Vodafone , while the Nokia Lumia 920 is about to land in our market. So before you decide on one or another model, let’s review the following points:

Design and Display

The first major difference can be found in the screen size using both models. Nokia Lumia 920 has a multi-touch screen 4.5 inches diagonally and get a maximum resolution of 1,280 x 768 pixels .Furthermore, it has different technologies like PureMotion call that will make the screen refresh is greater than average. Or, get a brightness of 600 nits and resistant to scratches or damages due to treatmentGorilla Glass . Finally, this model has one of the market-sensitive screens: the user gets run though your hands with gloves . The same can not be said of the latest model of Apple, the iPhone 5, which seems to have a panel less sensitive than the previous model .

Meanwhile, the screen of HTC 8X is somewhat smaller in size: 4.3 inch and get a resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels . His panel is SuperLCD 2 treatment and also has Gorilla Glass to make it more resistant to wear everyday.

In terms of design, the two-piece chassis equipped teams. And that of course because of its size, theNokia Lumia 920 is more bulky and can weigh something greater. Yes, the two teams will be available at a variety of colors for maximum customization terminal.


The two protagonists of this comparison are full of connections. 8X HTC , for example, allows users to browse the Internet via WiFi hotspots or 3G mobile networks. Also, a story in technologies that can share files, are NFC and Bluetooth 3.1 .

Meanwhile, the Nokia Lumia 920 also has WiFi and 3G high-speed, in addition to presenting the system NFC or Bluetooth 3.0. However, there is another technology between the characteristics of the Nordic model. And it is the ability to share music, pictures or videos with other compatible equipment with DLNA .

For the rest, both teams have a MicroUSB port for charging or sync content with a computer and a standard audio output of 3.5 mm where conventional connect headphones or external speakers. Finally, both models have a GPS receiver that will work with the mapping of Nokia or Nokia Maps . As a bonus, the Nokia Lumia 920 has FM radio tuner , a feature that the HTC model no.



Another paragraph in which you will notice big differences is in the field of photography . First, with Windows Phone 8 , new terminals are able to make use of a front camera for video calling. And in both cases we are concerned, this is a web camera in front of the colorful designs.

Meanwhile, the main chamber of HTC 8X equips an eight-megapixel sensor resolution, accompanied by an LED flash and offers the ability to record HD video at up to 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, known as Full HD resolution.

In addition, the Nokia Lumia 920 is presented as a camera phone converted , but not reach the levels of his brother PureView Nokia 808. In this case there is a sensor of 8.7 megapixels and a lens from the prestigious German manufacturer Carl Zeiss . To this must be added that has a Dual Flash LED type light scenes better in dim light. Similarly, the Nokia Lumia 920 also has PureView technology inside, which will earn higher image quality than its competitor. However, when recording video, the forces are very couples: You can also capture full HD clips.

Meanwhile, the front camera will offer a good experience both as video calls can be made in up to 720p high definition in the case of Nokia or Full HD for HTC.


Power and memory

The arrival of the new Windows Phone 8 were expected. And these could use more powerful processors.The two models have within a processor Qualcomm Snapdragon dual core and a working frequency of 1.5 GHz . addition, the RAM of the two smartphones reach GigaByte.

However, the first major difference is the space for storing files, even to double the amount from one model to another: the HTC 8X has a memory of 16 GB , while the Nokia Lumia 920 reaches 32 GB . And this must be taken into account because none of the two models offers the possibility of increasing this number using memory cards-no MicroSD slot. Yes, thanks to the service SkyDrive , users can enjoy up to seven GB free in the cloud , as long as the computer is connected to Internet, either via WiFi or 3G.


Windows Phone 8 comes with improvements including: adapting the icons to the home screen to consumer tastes, to customize the main menu background or to make use of Room, private spaces and virtual-to-be in contact with different users . However, all this must be added the Nokia terminal also includes software itself: Urban Vista Nokia, Nokia Drive or Nokia Urban Transport , will make the GPS module is an indispensable tool in the daily commute.


While HTC does not offer information about the autonomy of its HTC 8X with 1800 milliamp battery , Nokia said that its Nokia Lumia 920 has a higher capacity battery (2,000 milliamps) and get to work 18.6 hours in conversation and up to 460 hours of standby time. Also, if it is used as a music player, you can get a figure of up to 74 hours non stop. Finally, another virtue of Nokia Lumia 920 is that it can be charged wirelessly through induction charging . And Nokia already offers various accessories for this task.
