The much-awaited Apple Inc.(NASDAQ:AAPL)’s iPhone 5 may be all set to dethrone the iPhone 4S on 12th September. However, this also means that users may be able to snap up on an iPhone 4S for a bargain price. Nokia Corporation (ADR)(NYSE:NOK) is having hopes to make users think twice before buying Apple’s iPhone. Let us watch what the Finnish mobile giant has in store with the Nokia Lumia 920.
Design and Build
Apple iPhone 4S is approaching its first birthday but it still has enough sophistication, thanks to its impeccable solid glass and aluminum design. On the other hand, Nokia Lumia wears an eye-catching polycarbonate unibody shell. The phone comes in a veritable rainbow of refreshing hues and colors. Its durable construction means that users would not have to go through the pain of iShatter effect on dropping the phone.
Lumia 920 comes with a pixel-packed 1280x768 resolution that places it just a few pixels short of the Retina Display in iPhone 4S, an imposing feat considering the fact that it is a whole inch bigger. With the capability of automatic adjustment of colors and anti-glare technology to boot, the Lumia 920 comes with an IPS LCD display that is expected to do justice to Windows Phone 8’s bold colors and brusque clean lines.
