Nokia Windows Phone 7 Lumia 800 vs Huawei Honor http://www.modem3g.com/huawei-u8860-huawei-honor.html http://www.modem3g.com Nokia recently revealed two new phones running Microsoft's Windows Phone 7.5 Mango platform: a lower end Lumia 710 and the top of the line Lumia 800. Both phones are GSM/UMTS/HSPA only, and will initially be sold only in Europe and parts of Asia this year. That makes the devices only potentially functional on AT&T if imported to the US, but Nokia hasn't yet released plans to bring the devices to America. The company has never established a significant presence in the US for its smartphones. Nokia has indicated that may eventually build CDMA or LTE versions of its phones for sale in the US next year. Worldwide, Nokia's leadership as a smartphone vendor once established its Symbian OS as the leading platform for more sophisticated mobile devices, but that dominance has collapsed since the arrival of Apple's Phone in 2007. In China, Huawei as one of the world’s biggest telecommunications equipment and services company has also established its own smartphone brand, Now, a few android smartphone have appeared on the market, like Huawei IDEOS series Huawei IDEOS X3 U8510, Huawei IDEOS X5 U8800, Huawei Sonic U8650. And some high-end android phones have also released like Huawei Vision, Huawei Honor and Huawei IDEOS X6 U9000. Nokia's Lumia 800 is based upon the company's N9, a MeeGo Linux phone released in June of this year after Nokia announced its plans this spring to shift from Linux and Symbian to Windows Phone 7. Nokia made no plans to sell the N9 in the US, focusing on bringing WP7 to market instead. The Lumia 800 is a cross of the two. Nokia Lumia 800 vs Huawei Honor Hardware The new Lumia 800 is not a global WCDMA/GSM phone like Huawei Honor, but does match its HSDPA 14.4 Mbps download potential on European networks. It has the same 512MB of RAM and uses a faster clocked but simpler, single core Qualcomm chip, putting it somewhere between Apple's iPhone 4 and 4S in terms of general performance but considerably worse than both in graphics performance. The model is offered only in a 16GB capacity, and lacks the SD Card slot and removable battery that many previous Nokia buyers expressed a preference for over the iPhone's built in storage and battery. The Lumia 800 offers better camera specifications (8.0MP main camera) to the Huawei Honor, but has a dual flash and lacks a front facing camera for video conferencing. It also supports 720p video capture, nor HDMI video output. It lacks a gyroscope for accurate motion control. Nokia uses an AMOLED display that is slightly smaller than the Huawei Honor, but offers the same 480x800 resolution display. Huawei Honor U8860 Pre-order Nokia rates the model as having a 9.5h 3G talk time and 13h 2G talk time, but Huawei honor only listed the battery capacity is 1930mAh which is bigger than Lumia 800’s 1450 mAh, although the battery life tests between Huawei Honor and Nokia are not standardized and therefore not necessarily comparable. Compared to the previous N9, the similar Lumia 800 includes half as much RAM and no 64GB storage option, but a slightly larger (but still integrated) battery. This indicates Nokia is aiming at establishing even its higher end model at a price point affordable to the mass market. It plans to sell the model for 420 Euros (about $580), making it about twice as much as Huawei Honor (which is about $399 in huawei device online store).
