Default HTC One VS Lumia 920

Hey guys couple questions the lumia has an IPS LCD display and the HTC One has an LCD3 display, what are the advantages of both if any? Wouldnt the IPS perform better in sunlight?


Is the beats branding on the HTC actually mean anything or is it just marketing and also wondering about Dolby Sound enhancement for the Lumia? which is better to have?

The HTC One has IPS as well. In terms of angle viewing and sunlight visibility, it should be equal, if not better then the Lumia 920. Quality wise, the HTC One definitely has the better display hands down, unless you want to use thin gloves with your touchscreen.

Beats does change the sound of music playback. I found it improved the sound of the songs I listened to on my One X, but others didn't like it. I can't comment on the Lumia's sound quality since I've never listened to music on one

+1 for beats. I know their headphones are just marketing crap, but the built in equalizer and amplifier from beats make a difference

Yeah the marketing hype for those headphones is crazy stupid. I have a pair of Bose AE2's that blow those things out of the water and cost a heck of a lot less. I do see a lot of people with Beat's having iPhone's though, maybe there's a connection in regards to overpri..nvm...

The sound on the lumia 920 is OK, it lacks clarity compared to One S/X/M7 (for names sake as One is just so confusing), SGS3/GN2, Xperia T/Z or loudness but there is a good amount of bass. Overall it is good but I feel it could have been better tbh.
