As it can be seen, the Nokia Lumia 800 may be cheaper than the Apple iPhone 4S for most contract plans. But the Apple iPhone 4S has superior display and features like Siris, iCloud and iOS 5. Let us not forget the Apple support, constant software upgrades, Apple community and Apple App store with the variety of wonderful apps on the App store – a lot of them free too.
The Lumia 800 and iPhone 4S is available through major UK retailers and service providers. The iPhone 4S is also available through Apple’s online store.
