I admit from the outset that despite being a mobile phone addict, I have never been tempted by the iPhone.
The iPhone announcement did little to increase my enthusiasm. I am, on the other hand, quite a supporter of the Windows Phone OS. Observing the difference of opinions online over the specs for the recently released Lumia 830 (disappointment) and the iPhone 6 (lauded), I thought it would be interesting to compare their specs.
I make no comment on these but will simply let the details speak for themselves:
