On the design front both undeniably look amazing, and top the order list. Clearly, it is a tie for Nokia Lumia 925 and HTC One !

The real comparison shoots on the camera front, as both manufacturers claim of packing the devices with top-of-the-range camera tech. So how do they measure up?

While  Nokia Lumia 925 packs 8.7MP it stands against the 4MP on the HTC One. Any smartphone user today understands the fact that it is not about megapixels only that pan out the photography.

Both manufacturers set claims to strong low-light camera performance, and both sport larger-than-normal 1/3″ image sensors and f/2.0 apertures to help towards that.

Nokia uses advanced Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) to eliminate the effects of a hand shake. Going by this aspect Nokia Lumia 925 is a winner but the truth is both cameras take fine low-light images!

On the display front Nokia Lumia 925 sports a decent 4.5-inch 720p AMOLED display and HTC One has a 4.7-inch 1080p LCD display. Nokia uses a more advanced AMOLED technology than the older LCD technology found in HTC.

This quality found in Nokia allows it to offer deeper blacks and more vibrant colours than the HTC. Last but not the least you can use Nokia Lumia 925 even with gloves on!
