    Nokia wins Hands down… Better you should have compared Nokia Lumia 710 VS HTC Radar…

    Samsung is pathetic only good @ Hardware but not so good when it come to body and Softwares

    • Shameer

       Nokia has no secondary cam. Design is also poor. Nokia is still struggling to make a place in the smart phone sector. Lately they launched some phones copying HTC’s sense Interface and with NFC which ihas been there before in Samsung Nexus and some other phones. Nokia has also put mutiple home screen and customizable Interface copying Android phones.

      No doubt SAMSUNG is the No.1 in Smart phones followed by i phone.

       ANDROID and  i OS are the best.

        nothing is like that even nokia is good in smart phone…

      • sir_tech

        Trying very hard naa. What HTC phones they copied? And the sense UI is senseless people. Ohhh god when they gonna remove that BIG clock which occupies entire screen.

        Have you ever used windows phone? It performs better than those android phones with dual cores. Android is laggy and clunky.

      • AmazingMe

        Android sucks compared to WP7.5

  • Ijas123

    Thumbs up for radar

  • Nokia has killer hardware, Samsung has good & goreous displays so choosing among them is gonna be a hard task for anybody who is planning for windows phone below 20k

    I don’t about the price of the Nokia Lomia.. both have almost same features.. so price is the important. Samsung Omnia W is coming with approx Rs. 20000….
