Both phones are by no means high-end devices and both Microsoft and Apple don’t offer anything revolutionary here. The iPhone 6, however, is thinner and lighter, has a better processor and a slightly more dense screen.
Lumia’s 830 camera module, on the other hand, should deliver better images as it features a 10-megapixel PureView sensor with Optical Image Stabilization. iPhone 6’s camera lacks OIS and offer less pixels.
With iPhone 6, Apple finally offered NFC to its consumers and this has been described as ”huge innovation”. Well done guys, but Nokia 6131 had NFC more than 8 years before iPhone.
Of course, the iPhone 6 is far more expensive than the 830. If you choose the 16 GB version (it will be useless if you download many apps, games, multimedia and take photos) you need to pay $219 more than the Nokia Lumia 830 which has a microSD for expansion.
So, what is your opinion about the Iphone6 and the Lumia 830? Are you willing to pay $219 extra for having an Apple on the back?
