    Data connections should not be part of the comparisons. Till the day comes people stop comparing things to the iPhone the iPhone always wins. The only iPhone killer is the next iPhone.

    How about we just write about the Lumina so people can learn. I happen to still like it even if it does not compare well to the gold standard.

    Steve, wait till next week. I have one to test from tuesday next week, for 4 days. Maybe you trust my findings, no?As far data connections, I beg to differ. And you know exactly what I mean. My SII or Note are lightning on 3G or HSPDA (H+).

    That's my point, connections are different for everyone and not fair to add the variables are tremendous.

    I'll write up a review on Sunday. I am still on HSPA+. LTE is supposed to be available next month.

    This comparison is a little limited, in that it only features the two phones against each other in areas the author believes is important. I agree that the winner should be iPhone in a direct comparison, but the score should be much closer. For example, in the screen comparison the Nokia washes out less in sunlight than the iPhone - which Mr. Kovach actually mentioned - but no points awarded. Also important is Microsoft Office integration, which was not mentioned. I guess in a world where multimedia is the only area in which we compare devices, he would be correct - but here in the real world these little monsters are used for a lot more. Where's the PIM comparison? Word Processor, or note-taker comparison? Construction quality? Did he do a drop test? Processor speed comparison? How well do the devices work without data plans? How is the calendar? How logical is the picture/video organization?Frankly I think the iPhone would still come out the winner, however this is only a partial comparison. Mr. Kovach's material is usually a little more thorough.

    Or, come to think of it, how do they compare re: phone calls? They are, after all, phones - and no telephony comparison? By this same logic (picking and choosing what areas to compare devices), I can compare an iPhone to a 2005 feature phone and the feature phone could win.

    He fails to mention functionality ... And Office on the Lumia is a winner right across all OS's. That's what attracts me. And also some other points, principally the fact that we now have another, and growing, OS to consider.But then we know, also, where Mr. Kovach's preferences are...he can't hide his affinities, or his bias.
