Nokia Lumia 1020 VS Samsung Galaxy S4

Announced at Pier 92 New York City,Nokia unveiled the new Nokia Lumia 1020 the first 4 digits Nokia Lumia range and the first Windows Phone that have 41MP Camera

-Design: the Nokia Lumia 1020 still using the N9 design with some improvements,Nokia decided to go all matte for all Lumia 1020 colours,it makes Lumia 1020 feels very soft and durable
Meanwhile Samsung Galaxy S4 still with its plastic materials which are very uncomfortable,slippery,and not durable

-OS: Nokia Lumia 1020 comes with Windows Phone 8 GDR 2.0/Amber it have some improvements like bringing FM Radio,Double Tap to unlock with Glance Screen,CardDav and CalDAV support
Windows Phone 8 are quite elegant,fresh,and very optimised
Live Tiles keep updating with the latest notifications and updates in real time (but still @Microsoft are very slow to give major updates for Windows Phone,Thank you very much Microsoft!)

Galaxy S4 use Android 4.1 Jelly Bean even it have 8 cores processor but it still quite laggy even on the homescreen,battery life are very unstable it makes the users are not satisfied with Galaxy S4

-Camera: Nokia Lumia 1020 comes with 41MP Sensor with ZEISS lenses/optics,it have 6 High Precision lenses to make very clear,sharp,and natural picture,it have oversampling technology on both Video and Photo,it have 1080p recording,and new app called Nokia ProCamera,the ui looks like an professional Camera
It have Aperture 2.2,2nd Gen OIS and Xenon Flash too

Samsung Galaxy S4 comes with 13 MP Camera with Single LED flash and no oversampling technology,the result isn’t natural and detail like the new Nokia Lumia 1020,it doesn’t have Xenon Flash too which is helpful for taking pictures in any light conditions

-Screen: The Nokia Lumia 1020 comes with PureMotion HD+ screen which is the fastest ever screen and reducing blur and it makes people love to see the screen,Nokia Lumia 1020 comes with Clearblack technology which are very useful if using the phone under direct sunlight

Samsung Galaxy S4 Comes with Super Amoled which is unnatural and not comfortable to eyes,Galaxy S4 screen are very slow so it can’t reducing the blur,Samsung Galaxy S4 also have poor visibility under the direct sunlight,but Samsung Galaxy S4 have Full HD display even it useless on 4.5 inch Nokia Lumia 1020,I think Full HD only can makes battery drain faster

Both have same Gorilla Glass 3 protection

-Mapping: Nokia Lumia 1020 have the Nokia HERE locations services which always provide amazing mapping in every locations,it have indoor mapping too
The Nokia HERE locations services can be truly offline and it makes you can save a lot of data,money and time,with HERE Drive+ it makes navigating to everywhere are much improved and taking the users to whole new level of turn by turn navigations which are very helpful for Nokia Lumia users,HERE city lens making us to be a local in a new place,we can explore the cities and see the review too

Galaxy S4 comes with Google locations services which provide same off line mapping but its not 100% off line,some people recognised that Google Maps still making the user lost some data and money
Google turn by turn navigations isn’t as clear as HERE Mapping services

-Storage and accessories : What I don’t like for Nokia Lumia 1020 is the lack Micro SD slot,I wonder why Nokia can’t put Micro SD card slot on Lumia 1020,some said it will kill the design but Lumia 720 can have Micro SD card slot in its unibody screen,but still its enough for me but maybe its not enough for the other people,the 64GB version also not coming to the US,Nokia Lumia 1020 have amazing accessories called Camera Grip,it makes we can have a better and stable picture in any conditions,it also comes with Extra battery too which are very helpful for the user,another thing which I doesn’t like in Nokia Lumia 1020 is the lacks of HDMI and USB on the go support which the predecessor (Nokia 808 PureView/Hyperion) have,Microsoft should add that feature,improve multitasking/bringing w8 multitasking to Windows Phone,better notifications,file manager,background picture,and every tiles on start screen can be customised with some accents to attract Symbian and Android users to Windows Phone

Galaxy S4 doesn’t have their own camera grip,but they are providing Micro SD card slot,and HDMI

That’s our comparison between Galaxy S4 and Nokia Lumia 1020
