    You would think the most innovative smartphone would trump all its rivals, i constantly get into friendly fights with my cousin and so far I'm the one with a stick in my ***.

    So far I've won in the max volume round, touch test, photography test,looks test.

    Failed in the reboot test, browser test, movie test, & weight test

    But was seriously let down by the hd screen on the lumia, The avatar movie on the S3 looked amazing, satturated colours on the s3 seems to have done the job very well.

    Are there any nice features which an lumia 920/WP8 Can do that a S3/Android cannot ?

    Easy .... challenge them into the drop test from the shoulder down to the floor. They will stop bothering you after that.

    There's an similar app in android market, though not comparably good but still gets the job done, circle the parts that you want to be moved, and there, you've got a gif, though i'm not sure if you can save it as an image on the PC.

    Photobeamer, yeah! forgot about that, can anyone confirm that there's no similar app in android coz i'm pretty sure there might be one.

    Lockscreen wallpapers gets countered with wallpapers.

    Kid's corner, I'll try that, though I'v never used it probably because i never give my 920 to anyone! :D

    Never understood rooms, maybe i'll check that out too!

    Thanks!

    I know right, so i was laughing before the test saying how my PUREMOTION HD + is going to own the s3 in no time, so we both had our brightness to the max and compared the same movie side by side, and was hugely dissapointed.

    Watched avatar and while my blue had some white tinge, I hate to say it but the blue on the s3 was amazing,

    I really hate loosing to an older phone.

    Is there any mode i can switch to ? He had some settings for movies.

    You can try this for yourself, maybe i can have screenshot of both screens in 2 days time.

    Though I'm pretty sure mine would win hands down, but still don't have the balls to test this,

    You are getting confused between over saturated colours that are not natural and what catches your eye.

    The S3 with SuperAMOLED has deep blacks but unnaturally bright colours of every other kind. The S3 is just more eye catching but it isn't realistic.

    So that test really depends on what you want from a display, which is bright over the top colours that pop or realistic colours that look like real life.

    Its not about having unique stuff. Its about doing stuff uniquely. Cinemagraph and lock screen wallpaper look alike might exist but they cant do how it is done effortlessly on Lumia. Lock screen live wallpapers ARE NOT same as Android wallpapers by a mile and a half.

    The 920 can stand, just kidding You obviously have a great build quality and finish. Besides the nokia offline maps can beat S3's goggle maps hands down when you are stuck away from civilization.

    ^ not in the US.. I've found that gmaps has better indexing overall.

    Screen readability in sunlight
    Quality of audio recording, particularly at concerts
    Stability of video recording while walking and panning (OIS)

    In regard to movie watching... some would say you won. It really matters how you define better. For example, make two movies or take to pictures of the same vivid scene in bright sunlight. Then compare the results. Define the winner to be the device whose displayed colours most closely reflect reality. The 920 will win.

    You could also attempt to recreate a few of the "smoked by windows phone" scenarios.

    Avatar is not the be all end all of display tests. As others have said, some displays have more saturated colors than others. In many cases too much saturation is a bad thing. Pictures of people for example don't look good when the colors are way off. Do another test with a picture of some hot model chick. She will probably look orange like snookie from jersey shore on the S3. ;)

    You can also just stop caring what other people think of your choice of mobile phone, and realize a pissing match between phone specs is really lame.

    Definitely true - it all depends on preference. If you go into a store and compare the Lumia 920 to a Lumia 820... you might find you prefer the Lumia 820 because of the brightness of the AMOLED and how it affects the saturation of colors - general consensus seems to be much brighter colors on the 820 (or any of its variants). PPI isn't going to affect that whatsoever... I think it's just the screen technology in general, not number of pixels. Galaxy S3 is AMOLED.. or Super AMOLED (that may just be marketing.. not sure though) so it's going to be brighter with more saturated colors. (Fairly sure the Lumia 900 has the same screen as the 820 and look at it compared to 920 in terms of color saturation: )
