Not change anything but the processor? They are using better ram, a much more powerful cpu and gpu, bigger screen, higher screen resolution, new software features, bigger battery, testing using an a7 cpu with an a15 to save battery. Samsung has changed the most on their flagship this year so far, HTC has changed it the least. All they didn't change was the body on the s4 because you don't change what isn't broken.

If any company is copying Apple it is HTC (inb4 down votes) its true HTC is a wannabe apple.

I love my l920 and even love WP8. It doesn't need a different OS to be great.. Talking about one trick pony how about the comments that are made by fanboys?

but there isnt anything special its great you love the device and the little they provide but you can't get on other people for wanting more in their device just like someone cant get on you for wanting not so much or exactly what windows offers but the comparison game here when it comes to the lumia stops at camera. they had a great run with the touch screen being able to be used by virtually anything but even the s4 now is useable with gloves and heck now even without touching it. just please give credit where its due the lumia is a good phone for who enjoys it

thats the life of technology. if someone brings something new to the table, they go and compete with it in the near future. thus having succesors, improving specs, features etc.

unlike iphone that still wont let me share files thru bluetooth.

Well, at least S4's capture is realistic. The toy car is squeaky so you'd expect it to be shaky. Lol. But stabilization-wise, you gotta give it to the Lumia 920 and that's the only good thing in that phone. It's never gonna be a deal breaker. Still buying the S4.

can your eyes even handle watching shaky videos? really.
lumia 920s ois IS a deal breaker.you will use that feature until the very end. you just cant admit it.

go ahead and buy S4. the only feature i could think of is the processor for playing intensive games that require power and battery.

its better if you buy a 10" tablet now. S4 is already a 5incher. probably S10 will be a 7" tablet then.

So you bought a phone just because it has a good camera? Your telling people to buy a tablet and a nokia so you get a good camera and a powerful device. How about you get an actual CAMERA and not some POS phone camera. Yes those still exist believe it or not and they destroy your beloved L920.

how about buying a quadcore desktop instead of an octacore smartphone?.

WP on nokia is better than any other WP device. just like how stock android is better than customized android. and the rest of android phones are just improving/buffing specs. the good thing on nokia is that it gives people more convenience in everyday life scenarios. but it is placed into different phone variants not just on one feature packed super phone. besides you dont even carry a real camera everyday.just a phone.

Of course my eyes can handle that, what's up with your eyes dude? In the first place, I seldom record videos and if I were to do one, I wouldn't tape it to a toy car.

S4 is more than a super-fast processor, I think you should go and read reviews about it.

I hope your boring L920 can last "until the very end".

day to day use you wont notice much difference, these specs you like to throw at people show what there for..........just to brag. your not buying a phone you will be happy with your buying it to talk down to people and brag about these specs.

big difference is wp8 doesnt need octocore or quad to run smooth

easy example for your little mind, android is like a Lamborghini gallardo v12, fast yes but when put against the smaller engined nissan gtr it isnt as fast. basically the nissan uses less but gives just as good and better performance

Well, when Victor H. makes test it doesn't look like this. Victor, in your tests Lumia 920 (and Nokia) is always the worse and disapointing :)

So, I am surprised that you put this comparing here.

When I am looking reviews with camera comparing I mostly find these that say Nokia is the best. Only on PA and at Victor's reviews Nokia is not so good... :)

Last time nokia use a Nikon shoot to represent their phone camera. Now this!!

Face the fact if you are a serious photographer you would never pass a phone cameras for professional shooting.

The rest are just casual shots which any modern phone camera would do fine.

errmmm boy....even super duper digital stabilization can't hold a candle to a hardware mechanism imp-lemented in Lumia 920.
The same with optical zoom and digital zoom (808 is an exception but to some extent). So stop whinning and accept the facts,

what can you do if we excel in camera and hardware?
while we are on par on processing speed?

and sammy fans put up specs that mean nothing in day to day use

face it on dual core wp8 is smoother the android on quad plus nokia gives the advantage of excellent camera hardware. your android devices are just becoming carbon copys of each other in terms of specs and other no real advatages

everything on the s4 will be available via 3rd party apps for others but theres no app for that can give a device the same image stabilisation as the 920

Microsoft must be paying Nokia a pretty high sum of money. If Nokia was smart they would of ditched windows phones a long time ago.
