Samsung Galaxy S III vs Nokia Lumia 900

0. phoneArena 26 Jun 2012, 05:34 posted on

For the last couple of months, the Nokia Lumia 900 has established itself as a viable competitor thanks to the combination of it stellar design and killer $100 on-contract price. But as we know all too well in the smartphone industry, there’s always a snake hiding behind the bushes waiting to attack. With that in mind, the Samsung Galaxy S III is undoubtedly ready for the challenge, as it’s undeniably one of the most highly anticipated smartphones out there...

people who want to be able to see something on their displays under direct sunlight. kapish? and thanks to clearblack Nokia's displays are the best (I'm not talking about the resolution). Check displays comparison in 808 review on gsmarena. You will understand WHO CARES AND WHY.

Exactly.. Every review I have seen on here shows white background. Which also takes up more battery not to mention make the phone visually very unappealing as opposed to black background...

"Bluetooth Yes, v4.0 with A2DP, EDR"
bluetooth is 4 not 3
and sgs has 50 gb dropbox on most carriers and retail

you are stupid troll you know?
Htc has been making same looking phones for years and Nokia has just released 2 phones which look similar. You've got some serious problems with reality (or your eyes) kid.

Lumia is too good in fastest uses. S3 is quad core but its lot of problem. Just people looking specification only no one try to see the purformance. That is why I like Nokia and window only. Keep it up Nokia.

Why don't you try them both side by side? You will see the S3 will blow every Lumia away

As far as me nokia 900 and samsung GS3 comparison is really unfair.We should give nokia one chance with windows phone8.

i know someone who own both phones and his conclusion, surprisingly, is he like lumia 900 better but by a hairline.

Phonearena, the Lumia is also an LTE device, you made it read like only the S-III had LTE draining the battery.

The comparison is not fair. Direct rivals are GS2 and Lumia 900. Anyway, I prefer Nokia for two facts: 1. It is Nokia, 2. WP.

I can't wait for my Lumia to come.. Had a Galaxy S2 and after ICS my samsung was a disgrace. Force Closes Java Exexption errors, Apps for ever downloading Random Icons and Widgets on your desktop. I would rather prefer a closed OS where everything is kept strict rather then a open one where people code alot of junk in to auto download Rubbish on your phone. So yeah after ICS No thank you keep the Android to the Spy and Spam ware Coders. I wills tick with C# coding and it's closed foundation.
