Comparing The Samsung Galaxy S2 And The Nokia Lumia 800

The Samsung Galaxy S2 was released back in April 2011, this is just a couple of months after it was announced in February of that same year. On the other side of the equation, the Nokia Lumia 800 was released back in November of 2011 (released just a month after it was announced). In this article, we will talk about one of the best-selling Android smartphone to date and Nokia and Microsoft's first product together. I am talking about the Samsung Galaxy S2 and the Nokia Lumia 800. I will make a brief comparison note on two of the top-selling handsets of today. I will start with Samsung and followed by Nokia. Read on!

Let us now start my comparison note with their Operating Systems (OS). Samsung packed its handset originally with the Android version 2.3 or Android Gingerbread. Recently, Samsung was able to get the much awaited and anticipated OS update the Ice Cream Sandwich. On the other hand, Nokia pre-shipped its handset with Microsoft Windows Phone version 7.5 or also known as the Windows Phone Mango OS. It is quite hard to give a point on these handsets when it comes to their OS. This is because we all have our preferences when it comes to OS. So I will just give them a good one point each.

Moving on, let's talk about their processors and memory capacity. Samsung shipped its handset with a powerful and speedy dual-core processor which clocks at a speed rate of 1.2GHz. The handset also comes in with two memory capacity (16GB and 32GB). There is also an option for an added memory via the phone's microSD card slot. You will be able to add as much as 32GB worth of memory storage on this handset. Nokia on the other hand packed its handset with a single-core processor which clocks at a speed rate of 1.4GHz. You will also get 16GB worth of storage space on this handset. Unlike the Galaxy S2, there is no microSD card slot on this phone. Therefore, your memory capacity is limited. When it comes to packing an added core to the processor, Samsung wins by a good one point. When it comes to packing more memory options, Samsung wins another good one point.

Let's now talk about their display screens. The Galaxy S2 packs a whopping 4.3" Super AMOLED Plus touch screen with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels (217 ppi pixel density). The Lumia 800 packs a 3.7" AMOLED capacitive touch screen with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels (252 ppi pixel density). When it comes to packing a bigger screen, the Galaxy S2 gets a good one point. But when it comes to packing the same screen resolution as the S2 and higher pixel density, the Nokia gets a good point as well.

To sum up my comparison note, Samsung received 4 good points while Nokia received 2 good points. The answer is now obvious as to who wins under the said categories.
