One of the latest examples of this is the clash between Nokia’s Lumia series and Samsung’s Note series. Out of which Note 3 and Lumia 1520 have emerged as the most-fierce competitors.

Galaxy Note 3 is powered by Google’s Android 4.3 Jelly Bean operating system with TouchWiz UI on top. It runs on 1.9GHz octa-core processor and a 3GB of RAM. It is installed with a 5.7 inch screen and is thinner and lighter than its previous version.

Samsung has incorporated a 13-megapixel rear camera in this device. Galaxy Note 3 fosters a feature that will allow users to disable the phone when it is stolen or lost as well as remotely track or erase the data from the lost phones.

On the other hand, Nokia Lumia 1520 is installed with six-inch full-HD (1080x1920 resolution) LCD display and includes a 20-megapixel PureView camera accompanied by dual-LED flash. It features quad-core 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor along with 2GB of RAM. The Lumia 1520 possesses a front-facing two-megapixel HD camera.
