The Nokia Lumia range has been the go to brand for any consumer wanting to invest in a Windows OS smartphone. The new Windows 8 operating system is due to arrive soon and as one would expect Nokia have new models lined up for this launch including the flagship Nokia Lumia 920. Other brands however have models planned for this exciting platform including HTC whose new 8X model has been named as the flagship Windows handset. On closer inspection however it seems that Nokia’s latest offering holds the upper hand over this phone in some key areas.
Exact details about the specification of the new HTC 8X are still a little vague but reports suggest that two different version will be released both offering different storage capacities. The two sizes that will be launched are 8GB and 16GB which do seem a little on the small side for such a high profile model. What is more concerning is that the model features no SD card support meaning that users wanting more in the way of storage will have to rely on a cloud storage service. The new Nokia Lumia 920 also does not boast a micro SD card slot but the model is much better equipped in terms of capacity with a 32GB offering, quadruple what the basic 8X handset offers. 32GB should prove plenty for most users and there is of course cloud storage options available if required.

Mobile phone displays are growing in size and both of these models sport 4 inch plus offerings. A down side to increased size is that quality can often be sacrificed but the Nokia Lumia 920 has some great technology in place to ensure that this is not the case. The model offers the larger screen of the two phones at 4.5 inches but it uses new Puremotion HD technology to enhance video playback. In addition to this Nokia have once again used the Clearblack screen to eliminate glare and help the phone deliver great results even in bright conditions. The HTC 8X boasts a smaller 4.3 inch display relying on Super LCD 2 technology to produce its clarity.
Despite Microsoft naming the HTC 8X as he flagship Windows 8 device Nokia are seasoned veterans on the Windows platform and their new Nokia Lumia 920 outclasses its rival in some key areas.
