Nokia Lumia 900 Vs Samsung Galaxy Note : Windows Vs Android Mobile OS Comparison 1

The hunt for a stable, handy, amazing, full of features smartphone continues. If you are planning to move from Symbian Operating system, then obvious choices are either of iOS (iPhone), Android Mobile or Windows Phone (we ruled out blackberry). However choosing between the two (android or windows) can prove to a big task. We thought to compare the two so as to help our readers make a choice.

The most easiest way will be to compare between the two operating system or between android mobile phone vs windows mobile phone. However this cannot be just one comparison, it has to be a series of comparisons. The answer could be different for different segments, android may be best for high range devices but not that great for low range phones. So we will do a comparison between these two (android and windows) in different segment of phones.

Today we decided to take the top level (as of today) of both the categories. This is a windows mobile os Vs Android Mobile OS in high range device's. Or we can say : its Samsung Galaxy Note Vs Nokia Lumia 900. We will rate them on number of factors.

Samsung Galaxy Note (Android) Vs Nokia Lumia 900 (Windows)


Windows Mobile OS Vs Android

Look and Feel

Samsung Galaxy Note just looks like any other device and nothing special. Nokia Lumia 900 on the other hand gives a more premium feel. Galaxy is more kind of bulky and may be difficult to carry (that's my pov).
I guess girls won't even prefer this big phone. Nokia Lumia 900 has some classy touch and feels different.
But from durability point of view, Samsung Galaxy Note seems to be better.

Hardware and Response Time : Which is faster ?

This is the most important feature (to me atleast). On the high range segment devices, the hardware is almost comparable and pretty same. The processing power is great and lag is not noticeable in this high range phones. Both Samsung Galaxy Note and Nokia Lumia 900 performs great and you won't feel any kind of delay or slowness in the phones.

Please note that this thing is limited to high range phones (for mid and budget segment phones, android is too slow).
