Which one is built best?

First, we will talk about the Sony Xperia X1 which sports a glass back and metal frame. There is not an ounce of plastic to be found in the whole construction of this smartphone and it’s also waterproof and dustproof which will help in case of accident. On the other hand the Nokia Lumia 1020 is covered completely in plastic and the only saving quality on the phone is its huge camera lens.  So in this battle of the smartphone the award for best built goes to the Sony Xperia Z1.

What about the display?

The Nokia Lumia 1020 has a 4.5 inch display with 768X1280 pixels and has a pixel density of 332 pixels per inch. Even though the Nokia is smaller in size and that is probably why the pixel numbers are lower, the Sony’s Xperia Z1 clarity makes it win this round as well.

Which phone has the most power?

Keep in mind that since the Nokia smartphone has a Windows based operating system it does not need the power of the Sony Z1’s Android based phone but still the lower stats makes the Sony come out on top again.

The Sony Xperia Z1 has 20.7 mega pixel with Exmor RS sensor, which has the same stats as the Sony Cybershot HX50 handheld camera! It also has an unheard of 2 mega pixel front facing camera as well as being able to shoot 1080p video at 30fps. Now for the camera on the Nokia Lumia 1020 you will truly be amazed. The Nokia has 41 megapixels with a Carl Zeiss optics lens and is extremely good at zooming in close up to objects.
