This phone is selling like crazy.
Oh and by the way, for those who don't know... Ask yourself why Nokia re-branded Nokia Maps, Drive, City Lens to "HERE"? Its because other competitors realized that Nokia Navigation is the best in the world as they bought out NAVTEQ(the company that has all the maps of the world) for 8.1billion in 2007. Now soon you'll find that iOS and Android users will be using HERE Maps, HERE Drive and Live Sight(City Lens). So please, don't come here and tell us about Google Maps...
Boys and girls, its simple. No mobile device manufacturer can top or rather beat Nokia when it comes to innovation and user-friendliness. I mean really,what's the point of having a powerful and popular smartphone if its not user-friendly? Hence I believe that Windows Phone 8 was the best thing to happen to Nokia.

Long live le Lumia! WP8 is the hottest thing right now. Checkout its games OMW, its like my PSP. Nokia is now regaining that momentum it had with NSeries. With Windows 8 + Nokia you'll definately won't go wrong. I love it when Nokia releases a feature, the are innovative they don't get sued for copying like the others they make a feature that makes you want to buy the phone. Think of wireless charging, Night Photoshooting Xenon Carl Zeiss Optics, Windows OS, Microsoft Office and Sky Drive those are useful features than a simple sensing thingy when you hover you finger (S4 feature) its not necessary for productivity. nokia has always been innovative and with WP8 OS they'll make it. By the way Bing Maps and Nokia maps are as good as Google Maps.

They changed the shutter speed and enhanced there algorithm a slight bit for the image processing. So yes it is similar but it is not the same phone.
Devyani, 26 May 2013Can any one tell what's the difference between lumia 920 and lumia 928.. I'm just confused whi... more928 and 920 are pretty much the same device. I'll try and joint the minor variations that may help you decide.
1.) 928 sports a OLED Screen whereas 920 sports an LCD. OLED tend to have colour saturation issues (minor) but yields a slightly better battery life and better deeper blacks. Both screen host the clearback display that yields superb contrasts.
2.) 928 hosts a Xenon flash instead of LED, theoritically it gives better performance in low light conditions. Xenon flash is the flash set up in SLRs. 920 is really good in low light conditions and Xenon makes 928 even better in near no light conditions.
3.)928 hosts an amazing video capture capability with 4 microphones that capture audio really really well. It also hosts an amazing speaker at the back, its one of the loudest in the market at the moment. 920 does do a decent job at the same but falls short of 928.
4.) 928 has a a different design tat makes it 20 grams lighter than 920 but in my opinion doesnt look as great as the 920. (lots of people disagree with me so its really your personal take on looks)
Rest is all the same, so 928 is really a small upgrade on the 920 but an upgrade non the less. My personal opinion is that if you like the look of 928 go for it else the 920 isnt all that far behind :)
rahin, 28 May 2013hi all ... can u tell tht windows phn is better for what ? tell me its cons and pros..is it be... moreThat depends.
If you are looking for a value for money phone go for the 720. It has a stunning camera ande decent specs and 0 lag.
if you want a stunning and beautiful phone and dont mind 50 extra grams in your palms and pockets go for 920. It looks fabulous and the extra juice inside will enable you to play HD games in future.
If you are in America and dont mind a verizon network go for 928, it has almost all features of 920 and is about 20 grams lighter. I personally like th white 920 more than the 928 but thats your call. FYI this one has xenon so it has an upper hand in near 0 light conditions.
If you want a premium looking phone thats thin and light go for 925 when it launches, it has a slight corporate feel and as Nokia puts it makes room for a different kind of expression. FYI it has further improved 920's camera with an additional 6th lens.
920, 928 and 925 all have same hard specs underneath but the OLED screens in 928 and 925 will give them the slight upper hand in battery life.
Raj, 12 May 2013Samsung's 8 core processor is everywhere in market since 2 to 4 months.
Now Nokia launching d... moreFirst of all. Samsung doesnt exactly have octa core processor, it has 2 quad cores of which 1 works at a time. Only one works at a time.
Second, Nokia currently has its hands tied by the windows 8 OS which needs a firmware update to support quad cores. This will come only in November -December.
Third, the world might have moved to Quad cores that doesnt necessarily mean there isnt a market for dual core, Intel sells i3, i5 and i7 for desktops. You dont blindly buy the best processor, it adds cost.
Fourth, how many things is an S3 not been capable of doing because of its processor? The answer is Zero, processing power is a ploy to decieve people, it barely comes in handy. Right now Smartphones havent entered era where they need to have high processing power to be useless, it helps but is not a necessity.
