Nokia's smartphone, the Lumia 920, comes with a significant spec increase over the previous generation. While the Lumia 920 predictably bumped the display size up to 4.5-inches and runs Windows Phone 8, it also adds in some more unique tweaks like wireless charging and an 8.7 megapixel "PureView" camera.

Description

The Windows Phone 8X is HTC's flagship Windows Phone 8 handset featuring Beats Audio processing, a built-in amplifier, and a 4.3-inch Super LCD 2 display with 720p resolution. The 8X is powered by a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor paired with 1GB of RAM, has 16GB of internal storage, front- and rear-facing 1080p cameras with an f/2 aperture, and NFC support.

The Samsung Galaxy S III is the successor to the popular Galaxy S II Android smartphone and is upgraded in almost every way from its predecessor. It features a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display, 8-megapixel rear camera, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
