Nokia Lumia 920 vs Samsung Galaxy S III vs HTC One X specs comparison

Nokia Lumia 920 vs Samsung Galaxy S III vs HTC One X specs comparison
Now that the new Windows Phone 8 flagship is announced, let's see how it fares against the best Androids out there, from stalwarts like Samsung and HTC. Granted, we have the LG Optimus G to look forward to that has obliterating specs, but we'll size them up against it when we get it for preview.

For starters, the Lumia 920 eschews the "thin and light" mantra of today's flagship Android phones for a bulkier exterior with more heft, trading an ounce or two more for optical image stabilization with spring mechanisms around the entire camera module. The display is also shaping to be killer, with its record refresh rates, high brightness and ClearBlack filter for maximum outside visibility.

Spec-for-spec it also doesn't bend to any of the flagship Androids now, so that advantage of phones with Google's OS seems over now. Things that could make you hesitant are the unibody construction with microSIM that didn't turn out well for the HTC One X sales, as there is a sealed battery and no microSD slot, but the Lumia 920 comes with the generous 32GB of internal memory, and SkyDrive allows you to sync directly with its 7GB after capturing a shot, for example.
