Lumia 920 is Nokia’s new top model with Windows Phone 8. The idea is that it should be the fattest Windowsluren on the market, which provides both advantages and disadvantages.
Nokia’s change of strategy from Symbian to Windows Phone are well known now. With Lumia 800 and 900 later they showed Lumia could still make good phones and in all honesty, it felt as if Nokia was the only manufacturer that really focused on making really good phones to the system.
Now times have changed and Windows Phone 8 is out on the course, but the question is whether or not the Nokia took in a little too much this time.
Before we move on somewhere else, we must take up the most obvious part of Lumia 920, namely the shape. Nokia has invested in a series of colorful and bright-polished shell in the same form as the previous phones in Lumiaserien (and n9 before them). Our specimens, the bright yellow model, for almost reminiscent of a kind of Finnish legobit. The build quality of the legobiten is, as usual, impeccable and color will definitely make it stand out of whoever uses it. But at the same time, the phone is, by today’s standards, almost extremely thick. The direct competitor with Windows Phone, Samsung’s Ativ’s, is much thinner and the entire fifty grams lighter even though it has a larger screen. In comparison with htc’s 8 x, with a slightly smaller screen, the difference in weight even more. According to Nokia depends the thickness of all parts for the camera would fit without sticking out, but really was the importance comes from we don’t know. Regardless of how the rest of the phone is perceived will probably many to experience Lumia 920 as too large, and the size makes the phone seems a little heavier than what it actually is.
We see beyond the size, there is not much there-against. The build quality is of really high class and it feels as if every detail on the outside is well thought out.
With that said, so does the Nokia certainly not saved to pull any punches when it comes to specifications. The 4.5 inch big screen is the ips-type with something Nokia calls for Puremotion hd +. In addition to a long name, it means that the screen has a much higher rate than many other screens and like earlier Nokia phones with amoledskärm is darkness something tight. In normal use, such as exchanging emails and Web browsing, screen technology not by too much. But when we start a little more colorful or graphics heavy games and especially movies, it becomes very clear that the screen belongs to the top tier among mobile screens. As a small bonus, the screen is also extra sensitive and can therefore be used with a little thinner gloves.
Screen in combination with the dual-core Snapdragon processor makes the time we expose the phone runs really well. Not that Windows Phone 8 has been perceived as a resilient system on any other phone we tested, but in performance tests position themselves Lumia 920 just above the competition with the same system. Another nice bonus is that Lumia 920 and 820 supports 4 g Web browsing in all Swedish online.
The camera is the other big thing when it comes to hardware in Lumia 920. Just as we can expect from Nokia, it is about really good picture quality to be a mobile camera. Nokia has recycled Pure View technique, though this time it’s not about the forties megapixel as in Symbianluren 808, but now it’s out on really good pictures in low light without a Flash and a built-in optical image stabilization that works really well. In dark environments belongs to Lumia 920 top among mobile cameras, while images in daylight put it a little more on the same level as its competitors.
In addition to great pictures and rattle-free fit video, Nokia has also built up a little funny software features like Smart Shoot, which takes a series of pictures of a group of people and let you pick out the best picture of each person before it all merged into a single image.
Most features for your money
Among the software otherwise we will find among other things Nokia Drive, which gives you full navigation capabilities in tele-phone in addition to the usual Nokia maps is included in all Windows Phone 8-mobiles. It included also the navigation for public transport and pedestrians see City Lens, which adds a layer over the camera sees with information about nearby restaurants and the like. Some shopping centres are also with map of in-husnavigation. There are also built-in Nokia Music service, image editor, a city guide and much more.
When it comes to built-in apps and software solutions is the Nokia simply the producers definitely put most effort into offering a good package, which weighs pretty heavily until the development of apps for Windows Phone started better.
If you overlook the relatively gigantic shape of Lumia 920 is definitely the phone that offers the most features for your money of current phones with Windows Phone 8.
