    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 ?
    What was that browser test ? ... You should beat S3 easily in SunSpider browser test:

    Easy .... challenge them into the drop test from the shoulder down to the floor. They will stop bothering you after that.
    If you've seen a few posts here you'll realise that a drop will most probably break the screen on Lumia 920 too.

    Probably, but the S3 won't break the floor.

    Well, it might break the phones and even the floor, but you probably beat your friend, so it might be worth of it ... :)

    Well basic science dictates the heavier the phone, the more damage it's likely to take if it falls. Both the S3 and L920 are equally as durable.

    Of course we lose the reboot challenge -- we don't have to reboot as often, they must get more practice with it!

    screen test: See which looks better outside in full sunlight. See who can use it better with gloves on.

    local scout. Bing vision to scan book or dvd covers. Scan and translate text. How fast to id a song - 2 taps (search + music). Cinemagraph. Smart photo to remove moving objects.

    The heavier the phone, the greater its inertia. Having greater inertia will only ensure that you need more kinetic energy against it to stop it after a free fall. It doesn't dictate necessarily if the object itself will shatter first. With an object of infinite mass, the impact to the object it hits, will be so immense that most likely due to infinite inertia required to stop the object, it will go through anything that comes in its way.

    "Weight test" with 920 vs. S3. If you ask me, 920 wins. I dont like big phones that are really light at the same time. It feels like a toy. Actually, no. Even Fisher Price toy phone weight more :D So it's even beyond a toy! :D

    And S3 is a great device most certainly. If 920 would beat it in every aspect I guess 920 was the most sold smartphone up to date? :P

    Just wondering... How did you watch Avatar on your phone? in other words how did you get the file on your phone?

    920 wins over S3 in following aspects..
    Looks
    Build
    Music quality
    Lock screen apps
    Kids corner
    Faster browsing
    Low light photos
    Image stabilization during video recording
    Lenses

    920 looses to S3 in following...
    Daylight photos
    Multi-tasking
    Battery life
    File management
    Wifi direct

    Both phones are excellent in their own regards but 920 inches ahead because of above mentioned features and UI..when I say UI I mean the swiftness, freshness and app integration, e.g you launch peoples hub and you are already,working in Facebook and twitter..similarly you open music and already have the other related apps linked there...

    Windows phone 8 OS is not a finished product yet...wait for the first couple of major updates and difference would be apparent

    (I realise this *is* WP-fans-central but...)

    How about you just admit that the GS3 is a pretty awesome device and move on?
    I love my Lumia, and WP8 is arguably good, but let's just admit that it has shortcomings. A lot of them.

    GS3 is pretty awesome device (subjective opinion) but it isn't any better than Lumia 920 as a device (subjective opinion 2) - hence a discussion.

    Nokia City Lens is pretty cool. I don't think it is available on other OS's? Xbox games?

    I'll make this simple:

    You let them drop their phone on yours. Then you drop yours on theirs.

    Now you've won.

    I prefer IPS LCD and all LCD rather than SAMOLED I don't like the saturation I think it to unrealistic and too much.

    I also been using LCD screens for all my phones so I very use to LCD than SAMOLED. I recently went to go look at HTC 8X and Nokia Lumia 820 I didn't like the SAMOLED on the 820 and preferred the HTC 8X (it was the only thing I could compare with due to the store not having the Nokia Lumia 920 )

    It a personal choice and I know what screen tech I would always choice from which make it slightly more easier to choice a phone

    The store was O2 and I also tried carphone warehouse which had less WP8 devices than O2.

    No, "GS3 is the greatest phone ever" would be a subjective opinion.

    Take nokia out under the bright sunlight nd you will feel Nokia ousting Samsung. Take a picture in near dark place without flash but with a steady hand, u can try taking a picture of text from a book in dim lit room and feel the difference. First phone with optical image stablisation. Better pixel density of the display screen. S iii is not proper 4G. Siii's 3G modem is 21Mbps whereas nokia is 42.2!

    If you two are on the same carrier, reception. Go somewhere with terrible signal and see who gets no signal or drops a call first. (Don't compare bars, each phone interprets signal strength differently so it's not a good way to compare.)

    If you've seen a few posts here you'll realise that a drop will most probably break the screen on Lumia 920 too.
    I must be lucky. I dropped my phone three times since I bought it.

    Take it outside, they will see how suck SuperAMOLED is. Say sth like "I dont know that your S3 required an umbrella to use outdoor".

    Why even care if your phone is out performing someone else'. Just enjoy the phone you like and move on.

    Thank you for that.
    I really don't get it why some people need to be reassured of their phone's superiority to feel good about their purchase.

    Reboot test, movie test and weight test? My Lumia 920 reboots much faster than my s3, the movies are much clearer (though I assume with all the blur and heavy colors in avatar it would look better with a saturated junk screen) Try something more realistic. Also, as far as weight goes, why do you want a phone that feels like a fisher price toy? My phone is reassuring, attractive, vibrant, strong, and beautiful. Their phone? Rehashed garbage doing whatever it can to stave off android's ever-present lag and failing.

    Umm Seriously? There's no perfect phone. But there is a perfect phone specifically for you. Doesn't matter if the S3 is better at something, as long as your phone is the best at what you think matters to you.

    Judging by your post, I doubt if you have kids. If you don't, then bragging about Kid's corner is pointless. Also, there are at least 45 alternatives to Photo Beamer on Android. Doesn't see how one phone can win in looks. I find the z10 looks awesome, some find the 920 looks amazeballs. Doesn't matter what others think as long as you like it.

    Gloves-on test.

    My wife did an accidental drop test from about 5 feet a couple weeks ago and the screen shattered - I wouldn't recommend that as a challenge.
