> In reply to Murmur @ 2014-02-22 18:53 from TdC6 - click to readThe good thing about iPhone 5 is that it take very short time for battery to be 100% , when charging, I have used so many phones IPhone 4s & 5 are the best. I will rate Iphones 5 80% , Nokia Lumia 920 70% , Samsung galaxy 4 50%. Is time samsung come out with their own OS and stop using Android.

The Best Alternative to Iphone 5 has been discovered at last-Lumia 925

My long search for the best alternative to Iphone for a cheaper price ended a few weeks ago when i discovered the Nokia Lumia 925 on GSMCURVE.COM .The Nokia Lumia 925 is even better as it has some of the advanced features which Apple is planning to add this feature in its next Iphone.Here is my honest review of the Lumia 925 showing you that owning a Lumia 925 is even better of than Iphone 5 and you wont have anything to loose but have better specs for a much much cheaper price.Iam going to outline why Lumia 925 is better

-Both have 2G,3G,4GLTE with the same frequency bands except that the Lumia 925 does not support CDMA

*Both have capacitative screens
*The Lumia 925 is far much better than Iphone.Lumia 925 has 768*1280 pixels whilst Iphone 5 has 640*1136 pixels
*screen size of Lumia is better as it is 4.5 Inch whislt that one of Iphone 5 is only 4 inch.It would be advisable to have a phone with bigger screen if you are more into typing documents and reading e-books
*Screen protection of Lumia 925 is better if not far much better than that of Iphone 5 as Lumia has Corning Gorilla glass 2 whilst Iphone 5 has only Gorilla glass
*The Lumia 925 has got a charming feature called Puremotion HD+Clearblack display which makes it a breeze when using the phone for functions which require excellent screen view.Unfortunately the Iphone 5 does not have it at all, maybe Apple might add this feature to some of its future models.So it is better to experience what Apple users are going to experience in some years to come now

*With Lumia 925 you can use your favourite MP3 songs as ringing tones whist with Iphone 5 you only use Proprietary ringing tones(those which come with the phone)
*Sound quality is one of the best out there if not the best so far.Lumia 925 has got a special feature called Dolby headphone sound enhancement which makes even boring music to sound so melodious and beautiful.Unfortunately the Iphone 5 does not have this feature now

Online cloud Data storage

*Limia 925 gives you an opportunity to store up to 7GB free with the Skydrive storage Unfortunately the Iphone 5 does not have this feature for free,actually you have to part with a fortune to have this service with Iphone 5

Battery Life
This is the most interesting part.
*Lumia 925 has got a powerful battery of 2000MAH whilst Iphone 5 has a battery capapcity of only 1440MAH
*Battery Standby for Lumia 925 is up to 440hrs whilst that of Iphone 5 is only up to225hrs
*Talk time for Lumia on 2G network is whooping 18hrs 20minutes and unfortunately the Iphone 5 on 2G networks has a talk time of 8hrs only
*Talk time on 3G for Lumia 925 is 12hrs whilst talk time for Iphone 5 on 3G is only 8hrs

*On face value the Lumia 925 and Iphone 5 Camera might seem to be the same for most people because both have 8mp autofocus cameras and same resolution but that is not the truth at all
*The Lumia 925 has a special feature called Dual Led Flash which the Iphone 5 might include in its future Iphones.The DUAL LED FLASH feature with Lumia 925 is there to produce a brighter flash and hence outstanding picture quality which is far much better than the iphone 5
*Lumia 925 has got a special feature called Optical Image Stabiliser which enables the capturing of outstanding picture and video quality which is far much better than the Iphone 5 which does not have this feature
*For those who are more into video conferencing and Skype video calls,the Lumia 925 is better as it has a 1.3mp front camera whilst the Iphone 5 only has 1.2mp camera

Processing speed
*The Lumia 925 has got a much better processing speed than the Iphone 5.Lumia 925 has got 1.5ghz whilst Iphone 5 has only 1.3GHZ

*Thats one of the most important reason why i wont buy an Iphone 5.The Lumia 925 has got Fm radio whilst the Iphone 5 does not have this feature at all.Coupled with the fact that Iphone 5 does not have the Dolby Headphone Sound Enhancement, that gives me every reason to be proud that i own a Lumia 925

Thats the most important reason why i finally settled for this
*Iphone 5 16gb unlocked price is around $540 for the cheapest whislt the Lumia 925 is only $364 for the cheapest

I have purchased a iPhone 4s about 28 months back, at the begining i would not know nothing. thought i had made a mistake. later checked the apple store's. The way the phone is updated is awesome. Games never lags. application's never hang. I also have noticed a lot of this, no matter what phone's the other guy's have. and no matter what clothes i am wearing and no matter whereever i am. as soon as I whip out my iPhone. I have noticed that the other's tend to hide thier phones away. because deep inside they know that thier phone is not worth's an iPhone thingy. You have to own it to know it........LOL
