Samsung Galaxy S4 as compared to Nokia Lumia 521

News   •   Jun 09, 2013 07:00 BST

It can be said that Samsung Galaxy S4 and Nokia Lumia is incomparable from each other in terms of specifications and features. It is surprising to see the latest promotional advertisement that pushes Windows Lumia 521 as against Samsung’s Galaxy S4 Android smart phone.This comparison focuses on Samsung Galaxy S4 quality vs. Nokia Lumia 521 tackiness. Keeping things straight, both of these phones offer a lot considering their prices but to compare Galaxy S4 to Lumia 521 is absurd. Specification wise, these phones are not the same. The market for high priced phones is broad as much as for affordable phones. Consumers have the option to choose from the variety of phones available.

Reviewing the specifications of both phones will tell readers why it is not a good move to compare the two. Samsung Galaxy S4 is equipped with a 1.9 GHZ Qualcomm snapdragon quad core processor, it also has a 5 inch AMOLED display that comes in a 1920X 1080 resolution.; 2GB RAM and comes in 16, 32 or 64GB internal storage. It is supported by 2600mAh battery and it is powered by the latest Android Os 4.2 Jelly Bean with Samsung’s Touch Wiz user interface.. Its 13 megapixel rear camera gives clearer and sharper picture.

Going to Nokia Lumia 521, it has a processor which is 1GHz Qualcomm snapdragon dual core,  4 inch WVGA LCD Display that comes in 512mb or 8GB of internal storage. It has an expandable microSD. There is also a 5 megapixel camera that uses a modern lens and runs in 1430 mAh battery.  

Specification wise, both offer great features but their prices are way different from each other. The promotional ad for the Nokia Lumia 521 focuses on the price. It points out the price difference and states that there is almost $600 difference. It is understandable that the prices of smart phones differ with each other and there are other smart phones that are more expensive than the Galaxy S4. Microsoft used the most expensive price for the S4. If the promo ad is to be believed in, a $600 difference from their price can go a long way. This means that money can be spent on other things that will perhaps benefit the family. The promotional ad stated many things such as the amount saved from buying Galaxy S4 can be used to buy  different basic necessities. This can be true but it’s quite meaningless to compare both. The S4 is already a hit when it comes to smart phones while Nokia Lumia 521 has proven its appeal when it comes to sales. They are different devices that are intended for different customers at different market.

The price is the selling factor of the Nokia Lumia but it is a useless basis when comparing the two. For consumers who want to have a quality and good phone not to mention great specifications, they should know that when it’s quite expensive they will get all the things they want to have in an Android phone like the Sd4. For others who want to save the money and is looking for a good phone, the Lumia can be good for them. There will always be a room for the S4 and the Lumia.
