Preview: iPhone 5s vs Nokia Lumia 1020

Apple announced the iPhone 5s recently, so let’s compare some of the features with Nokia Lumia 1020.

The design is pretty much the same from last year except there’s a new button with a built-in fingerprint scanner on the iPhone 5s. The iPhone is going to be thinner and overall smaller than the Lumia 1020.

The iPhone 5s also has smaller 4-inch 1136 x 640 screen compared to the 4.5-inch 1280 x 768 display on the Lumia 1020.

Apple spent a lot of time talking about the camera during their keynote, so let’s take a closer look.

The iPhone 5s has an 8 megapixel camera with f/2.2 aperture. The pixels are now larger at 1.5 microns. In comparison, the Lumia 1020 has a 41 megapixel camera with f/2.2 aperture. The micron size is 1.1. So, what’s better? A lot of smaller pixels? or a few of bigger pixels?

The iPhone 5s has a dual LED flash that they call True Tone flash. It’s made up of two LEDs, one white and one amber. The iPhone determines just the right percentage and intensity of white light versus amber light you need for more accurate colors.

The Lumia 1020 has xenon flash. It’s brighter and freezes people in motion in really dark environments. It’s definitely going to be interesting to see the difference between the two.

Both devices have image stabilization but in different ways. The iPhone calls it “Auto image stabilization” which is actually digital. The iphone will take 4 photos and combine them to give you the sharpest image. The Lumia 1020 on the other hand has optical image stabilization where the lens physically float to reduce camera shake.

One feature on the iPhone 5s is slow motion video. It can shoot 720p videos at 120 frames per second. This means you can replay the videos at one fourth the normal speed.

The iPhone 5s is going to be $199 with a 2 yr contract, but that’s with the 16 gig internal storage. If you want 32 gigs, it will cost $299. The Nokia Lumia 1020 is now $199 and it already has 32 gigs of storage.

Remember When Nokia Also Made Paper, Golashes, and Gas Masks?
Nokia began as a paper company. It was 1865, and the mining engineer Fredrik Idestam established a wood pulp mill next to the Tammerkoski Rapids in the southwest of Finland. A few years later, he opened a second mill, this one located on the banks of the Nokianvirta River — a river, apparently, named for an animal: a small mammal related to the weasel and the wolverine.
But the company that derived its name from a weasel-y creature wouldn’t be a one-product outfit for long. It would soon acquire a rubber factory, and a telephone-and-telegraph-cable manufacturer. It would dabble in electronics and clothing and forestry and robotics. 
Today, with the news that Nokia will sell its handset business — and its patents along with it — to Microsoft, it’s worth remembering the many, many other times that Nokia has shifted course during its 150-year history. Nokia has been pivoting since before pivoting was a thing.
