September has been a big month for Apple as it launched its new iPhone 6 series. But during the same month, Sony and Nokia also unveiled their new flagship smartphones that are equally tech advance as the Apple's newest flagship handset.

But before you go to your nearest physical or online store, you better check out the tale of the tape first between these two top caliber handset.

Both Nokia Lumia 830 and Sony Xperia Z3 share some features that make them both compact and affordable. But it is still better to know the two handsets deeper. So here is the comparative article about Lumia 830 and Xperia Z3's specifications and feature.

The Japan-based tech conglomerate equipped its newest flagship phone with a bigger 5.2-inch screen compared to Nokia's 5-inch display, as compared. Xperia is also sharper with 1080 x 1920 resolution which translates to 424 ppi. Lumia 830, on the other hand has IPS LCD display with 720 x 1280 pixels and 294 ppi.

Design wise, Xperia Z3 is the bigger smartphone at 146.5 x 72 x 7.3 mm compared to 139.4 x 70.7 x 8.5 mm dimension.

In terms of hardware, the Android Kitkat powered handset sports faster 250 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad core processor.

Both smartphones have 16GB internal storage capacity. They also have micro SD slot that allows expansion up to 128 GB.

While both phones have LED Flash and Digital Zoom, Japan-based smartphone also has better 2.2MP selfie cam compared to Nokia's 1MP front snapper.

Sony Xperia Z3 is again the winner when it comes to power source showdown as it is powered by 3100 mAh Li-ion which has a longer life compared to Nokia Lumia's 2200 mAh battery. Because Sony Xperia Z3 is clearly the better top caliber smartphone, it costs almost twice as the Nokia Lumia 830.
