Nokia Lumia 920 vs HTC Accord vs Samsung ATIV S: which one do you like most?
posted by Ray S. / Aug 31, 2012, 7:42 AM
Of course, we should keep in mind that the Nokia and HTC handsets aren't official yet, so there might as well be surprises when the companies announce their phones, but judging by the leaked photos and info, things do look pretty close to the real thing.
Granted that it's too early to draw any conclusions yet, it looks like Nokia will launch a device that's made in similar fashion to the company's previous top devices, the Lumia 900 and 800, which is a good thing. However, this design no longer has the wow-effect that it had a year ago, so Nokia will probably count on the marvelous PureView camera technology that will almost certainly be in the Lumia 920, as well as Nokia Drive turn-by-turn navigation.
The HTC Accord, on the other hand, represents a change in the company's design approach. Truth be told, the recently leaked render of the Accord reminds of a Lumia 800 or 900, due to the rectangular shape and colorful body. Even if HTC has been inspired by Nokia when designing the Accord, it'd still be a good thing, this design is a step in the right direction for the Taiwanese. That's as long as the looks of the Accord aren't too similar to Nokia's phones.
The ATIV S, however, has a very different appearance with its typical Samsung front and classy aluminum back cover that matches WP8 perfectly. There's nothing else that special going on with the ATIV S, except for its giant 4.8" Super AMOLED screen, so it probably won't be able to stand out from the crowd, but that is something that customers will decide.
So, let's presume that the latest leaks aren't fakes, and that the Nokia and HTC devices will indeed look like this. If that's the case, which of the three Windows Phone 8 handsets do you like most? Vote in the poll below to let the world know!

Its so obvious Every Time people talk about windows phone... It's lumia that comes to mind..... why would i buy a Samsung... i'm not saying that they are not good at making windows phone but is just too late for them to make a comeback with windows phone... beside Nokia built quality and design is much better. If Nokia comes up with an Android phone .... I won't buy a Samsung... Nokia is the way to go.

yeah... when it comes to windows phone..its all about nokia now...even samsung and even HTC make windows phone and windows mobile devices first... i agree with the writer, nokia should re design the new lumia to have a new "wow factor"... but if they push the pureview tech on these designs, i think it will be different since it will surely have a bump on the back... the leak photos dont really convince me at all..but i was convince by the other one, the 820..coz if its truly a lumia pureview, it should have a bump, but it doesnt have... i hope the 920 carry the 808 pureview camera (21 mp is pretty decent.. still higher than the new nikon and galaxy camera running android OS at 16mp) and the 820 will carry the N8 sensor but better(even N8's camera still sit on the top spot camera phone).. the lumia 820 looks like N9 ans N8 together to me... coz the camera side of the 820 is on top (on the leak photos) like the N8.. but i do wish they bring the N8 design back..i really like N8 design... its aluminum body is way better than samsung ativ s!

That is presuming that Nokia will do everything right! There is always possibility for Samsung/HTC to gain traction and for Nokia to lose it for various possible reasons Samsung/HTC might give better battery backup in the future Samsung/HTC might provide a cost advantage etc. etc..... We will just have to wait and watch

@joey_sfb: Anyone with valid U.S. legal tender. I know what you mean. I have a C7 Astound, 701, and a 5230, and they're hard sells at the price they should command. Folks would rather spend that money on newer or less-obscure hardware.

Actually.... I think 65 out of 100 smartphone buyers prefer Android. :-) Back to the article's question, I think the 'winner' will be dependent on who provides the best overall user experience - things like call quality, multi-media, browsing, and, and, and. It probably would be better to run the article/poll after all 3 handsets were available. Right now, it is more of a popularity contest.

I prefer the giant screen of the ATIV. The 2300 mAh also got my interest. Nokia had it's pureview camera going on so it might attract buyers.

0.3 inch will hardly make any difference. The interface of ATIV is so simple compared to sophisticated interface of Lumia and Accord

Ahhhhh! Doesn't the interface looks the same for all WP smartphones? How is the ATIV interface look different from that of Lumia and Accord. Yet people thumb u up for such a ludicrous comment. They all look the same, the only difference will be the hardware and added "Apps" sort to speak. But I stand to be corrected, I could be the stupid one here.

When it comes to WP, it really all comes down to design, as they are all usually the same specs (aside from screen size). With that said, Nokia makes the best looking WP devices. Though Samsung is making a stand with the Ativ, giving it an aluminum chassis instead of the usualy polycarbonate, that's a first. Wonder why they didn't do that with the GS3...
