Call Quality and Battery Life

HTC One vs Nokia Lumia 920
There are no huge issues with the calling quality on either the HTC One or Nokia Lumia 920, but the HTC One has the edge here. Sound in the earpiece is almost equally loud and clear on both.

Outgoing quality is better on the HTC One, with better noise cancellation and wind noise reduction, so it is easier to focus on the clear and natural sound, while callers reported hearing us a bit muted from the Lumia 920.

At an era of large displays, battery life is always an issue and while the HTC One comes with a larger 2400mAh battery and the Lumia 920 features a 2000mAh juicer, in reality both last around a full day of average use and struggle to last into the second. Both batteries are not user-replaceable, but the Lumia 920 comes with support for wireless charging, a nice extra.


Conclusion

HTC and Nokia are in a somewhat similar positions with the One and the Lumia 920. HTC’s ailing financials pushed it to deliver its best, and for Nokia the Lumia 920 is an equally important, flagship Windows Phone device.

The HTC One is the more recent device of the two, and while it won’t be an apples to apples comparison (they run on different platforms), it outdoes the Lumia 920 in almost every department. Screens are comparably good, but with a sleek, refined design, much more capable processor, an amazing sound output and recording, and a good camera, the HTC One has the definite edge.

What a hack of a review! And that's being kind. Did you really look at the low light video test? What a clever and deceiving videos. The HTC phone video captures all the lights in the room to brighten up the recording. The L920 phone is faced to the floor for a number of seconds showing total darkness then when brought back on the dancers it barely captures all the light in the room. Take a real good look at the videos. These folks at phonearena went out of their way to make the L920 look bad. I suppose it's their site they can do whatever they like. But I don't have to bite on their deceitfulness.

920 is only superior to htc in terms of camera.

HTC one may excel in specs, but the day to day performance would be the same it will still do the job of being a smart phone.

lumia 920 has similar spec to the iphone5. But their comparation showed iphone5 is equally good as htc one while lumia 920 is outdoes by the htc one in almost every department. what a joke.

I think it's a good and fair review. The 920 was incredibly innovative when introduced, but time passes and any phone 6 months old loses some of its glory. Anyway 920 still is an amazing device, but HTC One takes the lead.

In terms of real daily use, any of the two would serve its owner very well and the main difference would be the OS, some prefers more modularity and personalization (Android) some prefers more social integration and strait usage (WP).

I agree...
I like the 920...but this time, i'm going to go with the One. It is better.
One thing though, i don't like how they designed One, most may beg to differ, but that's my opinion.
Still, 920 will always be the phone that pioneered the engineering of OIS.

WP, Apple and BB just can't hang with Android. That lumina already looks ancient. To bad Nokia is in bed with Microsoft because I bet Nokia can make an awesome Android phone without being tied down by Microsoft. It would change peoples mindset overnight.

Misrosoft owns Nokia, they are in contract for another 2years of funding.
Nokia have landed in a death grip!

Long time since your last criticism, really missing your post without any type of argumentation, only full of hate, I see where it comes from, but, go outside, pick a little sun...

Why do you want Nokia to build an android device? Aren't you satisfied with the current OEM android has? I have a lumia 710 and a nexus 7 and open a PDF of calculus book with 1300+pages on both devices using acrobat reader. And the performance is almost identical even if your searching a specific word or number.
