Nokia Lumia Icon vs. Samsung Galaxy S4 - Video Comparison

Nokia Lumia IconSamsung Galaxy S4

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is still one of the most popular Android devices, even though it nearly a year since it was launched. Now with the announcement of its successor looming, the aging flagship faces a new challenge in the form of the Nokia Lumia Icon - a powerful contender on Verizon's network looking to dethrone the once  top smartphone

Even though the Galaxy S4 is still a very capable device, it's probably not the best time to consider purchasing one so close to the announcement of its successor. The 32GB variant is priced at $149.99 on Verizon, which seems a little high considering its age. Even if you choose it contract free, you will still end up paying $650.

Comparatively the Lumia Icon costs $200 on contract, but only $550 contract free. Even with its lower price you get 20MP camera with optical image stabilization, a newer more powerful processor and a premium material build.

Samsung still has the advantage of the Android app ecosystem and flexibility, along with secondary features like its IR blaster, which turns it into a remote. But with the growing Windows Phone platform combined with the strong hardware features, it will be hard to choose the Galaxy S4 over the Lumia Icon.
