Looks like a modest update.. should have been called 4s.1
Lumia 920 wins imo.
Lumia 920 wins imo.
Looking really good for WP and Nokia.
This launch might just gather ever so little more attention and customers for Lumia 920.
Same camera on iPhone 5 than on iPhone 4S, just thinner. Lumia 920 also has larger lens at 920 f/2.0 compared to f/2.4.
Lumia 920 has 35% more pixels. Even at 4.5" (compared to 4" on iPhone 5) the Lumia 920 is still has higher pixel density at 331ppi vs 326ppi on iPhone 5.
Best part was when they mentioned 21MP and i was like oh fock, did Apple just beat Nokia on it's own game. It was just about iPhone being able to take panorama shots and so it can essentially take 21MP pics... lol.
Panorama pictures on your phone, that's like never seen on phones since 2007.
So let me get this straight...
CPU ... Faster, but nothing spectacular.
the big surprise is that Apple was able to keep such a lid on an updated iPhone 4s. I just wonder if the masses will buy in to it, or see it for what it is. If the thing sells like hotcakes (3g & 4 numbers), then im afraid both WP8 and Android will be SOL. If it tanks (and by apple tanking, I mean, doing very well if it was another phone), then this could be the dawn of death for iPhone....relegated to "just good enough", and seen as just an ipod with a phone. Which makes me wonder if Apple really wants to sell the iPod touch, or are they going to try and move iPhone in to a AAA mp3 player market, and just keep the nano & shuffle as their only dedicated music players.
Are you sure it's faster? They barely said anything about the A6, or did I miss something?
All we know is the Apple A6 has Cortex A15's inside. That is comparable to WP8's Krait or Samsung's upcoming Exynos architectures. My guess is the iPhone 5 CPU isn't faster at all, but similar or even slower in a few select areas.
The GPU is another matter. I'm still willing to bet it will destroy everything currently on the market, including those in upcoming WP8 devices I think the GPU is the only spot the iPhone 5 is likely to be superior, but officially that is still just speculation.
