Top Five Windows Phones : Glimpses and First Impressions


One thing is for sure, the Windows 8 OS has shaken the market with its arrival few weeks back. All the big companies, handset makers are trying their utmost to capture the ground that the newest OS has created for them.  As expected, the Finnish handset maker Nokia came out with the first Windows 8 OS running handset, the Nokia Lumia 920. But the other big players like HTC and Samsung are gearing up for some real action in the foreseeable future.  Today, I will give you a feel of top five Windows 8 phones that, according to me, will rule the smartphone arena for quite some time. 

Nokia Lumia 920


First ever dual core Windows handset is considered by most as Nokia’s last attempt for survival. The handset has a 4.5 inches IPS TFT capacitive touchscreen with 16M colors, Dual-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm  Krait processor, 4G connectivity, NFC, 32GB built-in storage &1GB RAM, 8MP PureView camera & 1.3MP front camera, and 2000mAh battery.  Virtuoso.

Nokia Lumia 820


The little less powerful version of the 920, the Nokia Lumia 820 sports a 4.3 inch capacitive AMOLED touchscreen, 8GB built-in storage, 8MP Carl Zeiss Tessar  primary camera, VGA secondary camera, a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Krait processor seconded by a 1GB RAM, 1650 mAh battery. Like the 920 it is also a 4G handset. Magnificent.

HTC Windows Phone 8X


HTC is planning to rope in HTC Windows Phone 8X in a few days, which will be having a 4.3 inch S-LCD2 capacitive touchscreen, an 8MP HD primary camera and a 2.1MP secondary camera,  this 3G handset will sport the same 1.5 GHz  Qualcomm Krait processor as the Lumia 920 does. Then there will be 16GB internal storage and 1GB RAM. For those who like fast data transfer there is NFC as well.  Excellent, that is the word.  

HTC Windows Phone 8S


This handset is the smaller version of the 8X. It houses a 4 inch S-LCD capacitive touchscreen, 4GB internal storage, 512MB RAM, 1GHz dual core Qualcomm Krait processor, 5MP main camera with 720p HD video recording, VGA secondary camera, 1700 mAh battery,  and yes there is 3G connectivity for faster Internet. I would call it a good low end Windows 8 phone. Classic.

Samsung Ativ S

At last the handset comes that is my personal favorite, the Samsung Ativ S I8750. I have a very strong feeling that this handset will do better than all the above mentioned handsets in the domestic market. It houses a 4.8 inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 3G connectivity, NFC, 16/32GB internal storage avatar, 8MP primary and 1.9MP secondary camera, 1.5GHz dual core processor seconded by a 1GB RAM, and a mammoth 2300 mAh battery. Magnum Opus.  

Wait for a few days folks and choose the handset of your dreams, the all new Windows 8 OS will keep enthralling you all the time. The season belongs to the Windows 8.

  1. Got my 920 on Friday then headed off on a small weekend vacation where I got to play with my new phone quite a bit. Overall I love it- HOWEVER- I’m majorly disappointed with the camera. I don’t know if I just got a buggy phone or what, but the images are horrible compared to my iphone (which I gave up for this phone). I do professional photography and because of that I’m probably pickier than most, but my biggest gripes come from the comparison of what I’m getting from this phone vs the iphone. The compression seems extreme and the white balance is a mess on most my photos.
    I discussed my problem with some other sites also but still didn’t get any suggestion. Anyone else disappointed with the images they are getting from the 920? Or any suggestions for me that what should I do???
