Lumia 930 vs Galaxy S5 vs One (M8): specs comparison
Scheduled to launch in June, the Lumia 930 is Nokia's latest global flagship smartphone. With a 5-inch 1080p display and a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, the international variant of the Nokia Lumia Icon (exclusively available in the States) can rival pretty much any other high-end smartphone out there in terms of features and performance.

But can it face Android's finest and live to tell the tale? Well, while this is a complex question that would require some thorough testing of each device before it can be answered, we can actually see how the Nokia Lumia 930 ranks against the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One (M8) in terms of pure specs. And sure, specs aren't everything, but hey - you can't deny that it's just so fun to be staring at those specs sheets and comparing all the different features, one after another!
