SO WHO FARED BEST

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - RESULTS -

Work

As both the iPhone and the Lu­mia 920 lack mul­ti­task­ing, the fight was be­tween the HTC But­ter­fly and Black­Berry Z10. While we are so used to the mul­ti­task­ing on An­droid, the user in­ter­face, typ­ing, brows­ing and multi-task­ing won it for the Z10 . Scores:

Ap­ple iPhone 5: 18 Black­Berry Z10: 20 HTC But­ter­fly: 19 Nokia Lu­mia 920: 17

De­sign & Built

The Lu­mia 920 was out first as it was a bit too broad to hold and op­er­ate. We liked the iPhone and Z10, but our vote went for the HTC But­ter­fly as even with a 5-inch dis­play, the phone is very sleek. The red on the top and sides make it stand apart. Scores: Ap­ple iPhone 5: 19 Black­Berry Z10: 18

HTC But­ter­fly: 20

BAT­TERY

None of the smart­phones lasted more than a day be­tween charges. We had to reg­u­larly close apps when it came to An­droid and Black­Berry. How­ever, the Ap­ple iPhone 5 eas­ily gave us a day with heavy us­age even on a 3G net­work. Scores:

FUN

If we go by cam­era, the Nokia Lu­mia 920 is the win­ner hands down. But the over­all ex­pe­ri­ence of watch­ing videos, ac­cess­ing mu­sic and play­ing games was the best on iPhone 5. Its 8MP cam­era is good too, es­pe­cially with its new Panorama. Scores:

APPS

The num­ber of apps in their stores pushed the Black­Berry World and Win­dows Mar­ket­place be­hind. While the com­pe­ti­tion was be­tween An­droid and Ap­ple, the lat­ter won due to the wide va­ri­ety of apps avail­able for its plat­form. Scores:
