advice, 05 Dec 2012so after the review ,let's discuss the pros and cons of the lumia 920:
1.capacit... moreWell, lets try again :>
1. Capacitive touch screen, that works with gloves, pen(cil)s, fingernails etc.
2. 1280x768 of real pixels, not a poor Pentail crap of SGSIII or sad joke of 640x1136 in iPhone5.
3. Competitors have larger screen because their are technoligically incapable of build a display with over than 300dpi.
4. Display with double refresh rate, than competitors
5. Beautiful design that doesnt look cheap like SGSIII (battery cover bending under the finger (LOL))
6. Extremaly solid construction - no scratches on body (iPhone), doesnt brake if dropped on the concrete (SGS III) - well, the phone doesnt brake even if hit with wooden plank (see GSMArena Blog)
7. Windows Phone 8 - fast and smoothly working OS, that doesn't need 16 CPU cores and 8 GB of RAM to not lag
8. Optical Image Stabilization which kicks a** when its about making videos, and making night/dark/party stills.
9. Wireless Charging (which competition doesnt have - shame)
10. Navigation that actually works :) No need for data connection (extremaly importent when abroad) (Crapdroid and iCrap still doesn't have that)
11. MS Office !
Ok. Now Cons:
1. disapointing audio quality (very important, when u travel in a city bus surrounded by crowd :> )
3. Problems with image processing software (Nokia allready adressed this issues, and promised and update/fix)
4. Low app base comparing to competition
5. moderate battery performance
The question is, with all those pros in mind, who would buy overpriced iCrap or overgrown Iron with touchscreen? Only apple and android fanboys, right?
Is it really necessary to emphasize it is heavier than Note2? 183 vs 185 grams? What about those 50+ grams of protection cover that every Samsung and iPhone needs? And Nokia phones make it through a couple of hard work years without protection just fine.
Anonymous, 05 Dec 2012The still camera was dissapointing. And WP8 doesn't support file management or USB host mode, ... moreYou're wrong, RKKy. WP8 DOES support file management for all content you create yourself (Documents, Videos, Photos and so on). Just plug it in via USB, and you're good to go. No Zune/Client needed.
I've had much better results with the camera than this review has shown. PARTICULARILY for indoor/night photography.
It may be N10 .....the next N-series with Windows!!!
that will be the real best Nokia flagship after N95...mark my words....it will turnaround Nokia's fortunes :)
If its not N10, then Nokia will have no option but going with Android, again I have to repeat again the real n the best Android flagship ever will be from Nokia.
PS: In any case beware Samsung, ur fake glory days are nearing to an end...make as much money as possible until the real player enters! :)

So it means my calculator better than android ? :)
"Can you watch a video/youtube and at the same time surf webs or play games on iOS and WP?" --> dudeeee... Tell me one thing, what is the purpose u r surfing the web while the movie or youtube running in background n still keep playing.... U missed the movie dudeee :p hahahaha....
"And no mass storage at all. I cannot copy /send a file to my friend at all. And many many lacked features." --> many features but feels lagging on ur device? Dude u r really android fan boys... Pls try the iphone or wp8 first the u can learn then make an appropriate comment :)
One word, android still way to laggy compared to ios and wp dude. imho ya :) no heart feeling just accept the fact hahahaha.... Cheers :)
I work at orange romania. Today we have received from nokia a prototype for network tests. 12 mp, quadcore. This is all what i can see in 3 minutes because it goes in the hands of our m.f. Bosses. Its case is still ugly, undifined as design. Programmed for march
Gsm arena decribed the phone as luminary. That's actually very good GSM arena . Oops i nearly swallowed my gum. . Any luminary is a bringer of light. Leading the way forward. . Perfect
The still camera was dissapointing. And WP8 doesn't support file management or USB host mode, features that I use.
I guess I'd have to wait for the galaxy S4 for a decent upgrade.
hey nekko, 05 Dec 2012Build quality is.... Dissapointing (the are other ways to toughen the phone apart from making ... moreHave you ever touched this phone man? NOT.. for shore.Yet you talk about build qualty. When you hold this phone against s3, you feel like you have a very classy high end device in one hand (nokia quality is written all over) against a cheap plastic lowcrap toy, in the other hand(the crappy sh*t3). Camera, battery and the other that for you are 'dissapointing'. Are infact very good. Better then scrap3 anyway. Go learn some technology before trolling here like all fartdroids...
After a while, it's rather difficult to differentiate one WP device from another, even if the one in question is a Nokia. In such a scenario, I believe Nokia's standout features need to be heavily and aggressively marketed. This is where Nokia fails, I'm afraid. They need some inspiration from Apple in this regard.
Nice wordings used in the final concluding para :)
everybody is expecting DSLR performance from 920's camera even though I don't see its competition doing much better in day light, not to mention in low light and shaky situations(which the review didn't emphasise that much)...it was obvious that 808 would not loose the crown to soon, but noroid fans expect from nokia to fly them to the moon or something-it is just a phone people and when samsung will sell a phone which will make juice from apples while washing my laundry and vacuums I'll be convinced. the fact is nokia deliverd a worthy opponent, clearly not on everyoanes' taste
Anonymous, 05 Dec 2012Exactly! I will be playing GTA Vice City on my iPhone 5 tomorrow :)I will play Gta 5 tomorrow on my PC. So? What's your point? Every time i look here i see only pathetic comments...
willboyce, 05 Dec 2012Android is hardly a plan b. Its more like last chance saloon.i will be happy if nokia die rather use android. wht new thing bring nokia using android. pls explain
I pretty like the way this review is written. The conclusion is, on one side, clear & useful on the strenghts and weaknesses of the phone/OS, and on the other side there is an emotive (dramatic ?) touch in it.
A pleasant review, thanks !
Anonymous, 05 Dec 2012Exactly! I will be playing GTA Vice City on my iPhone 5 tomorrow :)I played it on my PC about 10 years ago, with mouse and keyboard instead of touching a glass surface. How about that?
Squalleonhart, 05 Dec 2012"Reality android n ios is better". Im agree if ios is a good os, but android? Seriou... moreIf you only need smoothness or responsiveness, you can buy a calculator instead of a smartphone.
Can you watch a video/youtube and at the same time surf webs or play games on iOS and WP?
And no mass storage at all. I cannot copy /send a file to my friend at all. And many many lacked features.
