The Lumia 920 is crowned best smartphone of 2012 by most tech websites and magazines. It will even beat some of the latest 2013 1080p Android phones. The reason why they don't compare Lumia 920 to these phones because it would be ashame to see these phones lose out to the Lumia 920. And when Nokia releases their 2013 successor to the Lumia 920, it will sure obliterate all other current smartphones. You'll be surprised to see one day Nokia back on top again. Windows Phone marketshare and Lumia sales are growing more and more, slowly but steadily. I will never underestimate the power of Nokia, especially how innovative and ingenuine they are.

Yes Sony are usually good with cameras, but i'm afraid they did a poor job with the camera on the XPERIA Z, like this review shows.
Sony Xperia Z, just like all Xperia, is a mediocre phone just encased in a glass cover. Everything about it is mediocre, camera, audio, features, performance, battery life. There is not one aspect which it tops the other smartphones.
anonymous, 02 Apr 2013S4 won eveything!!! by far!Well, indeed.
But, still, I'll wait for the 9500 (nor the 9505) tests to see if the Super SGSIII is worth a dollar or two.
And, of course, other reviews since that one of GSMARENA is a little too much biased for my liking.
Ok, maybe i've misinterpreted you, but, stating that Sony and HTC are the real players is a little too much.
Agreed that GSMARENA is a "bit" biased and that the One and the XZ are great phones, but indeed is the SGSIV and the Nokia, like it or not.
Just compare WP models from Nokia and HTC. Ah, ok, you can argue me and reply that it hav no Apzz and Gamezz but, beside that lameness of WP and all the crap Nokia did since 2008, their bulid quality is still superb although.
Alfonsan, 02 Apr 2013Well, it's pretty clear that your cars "expertise" is as vast as the smartphone one.... moreI just wonder how many people laughed on your Nokia - BMW reference, and that's my last reply to you. ;)
Sadistic, 02 Apr 2013Nonsense, Nokia has only taken the wrong path, just sayin´
And about the "no one... moreYou need to learn to read and understand posts properly, before anything else.
It's quite obvious I wasn't referring to Apple with "nobody cares anymore" part.
"Taken the wrong path" is massive understatement when it comes to Nokia. Either way, they are not serious smartphone contender at all anymore, so that says pretty much everything.
Yes, they were giants once, and there is reason for me saying that IN YEAR 2013, it is silly to put them in any serious comparison.
Being fanboy is sometimes hard stuff, isn't it...
Well, it's pretty clear that your cars "expertise" is as vast as the smartphone one. Well, enjoy your Nissan then, since what's "under the hood" defines a car, according to you.
mr.torture, 01 Apr 2013Putting Nokia in ANY serious smartphone related comparison in year 2013 tells pretty much ever... moreNonsense, Nokia has only taken the wrong path, just sayin´
And about the "no one cares" iPHone, well, Apple's sales pitch speak volumes about their "no one cares" and HTC and Sone, each day closer to bakruptcy tells me that they're not exactly the ones to go now.
And by the way, i can see the Great build quality of Sony... yes, superb it is. Just manage to plug in and out your headphone a couple of times to see what happens. IP57 MY ASS.
Alfonsan, 01 Apr 2013Sorry bro, but your comparison is poor and incorrect. Sony = Nissan and Samsung = Hyundai. And... morePutting Nokia in ANY serious smartphone related comparison in year 2013 tells pretty much everything about your credibility to be replied to, but still, I'm always having fun replying to silly posts.
Arguing Sony's build quality, design, tech pedigree, is ridiculous per se, whether you like that company or not.
On the other side, yes, Apple build quality could be described as "BMW" if you already choose to make that reference. But under the hood, it's quite poor machine, not worth spending words on that subject anymore.
Currently, considering complete build quality + software package, HTC and Sony are players to go with.
And yeah, enjoy your "nobody cares about anymore" BMW.
Samsung may be the best phone, it certainly is has all the potential, but Sony is the phone you want to be seen around. In my opinion, Sony has a better camera, after all it has sony lenses, so I disagree with gsmarena camera results.
Anonymous, 01 Apr 2013If SuperAmoled more superior than LCD then explain me
- white doesn't looks a real white ... moreDid you read the review of the Galaxy S IV at all?
Did you just blindly look away from the Adobe RGB color mode the Galaxy S IV have?
Adobe RGB gives pretty much the best / real colors available.
EDIT: Just because you have tried a phone with a faulty Super AMOLED screen doesn't makes the rest to be like the one you tried.
I have the Samsung Galaxy Note where white are white and black are totally black.
If SuperAmoled more superior than LCD then explain me
- white doesn't looks a real white and more dull.
- Black on SuperAmoled looks inky black not a pure black.
- Yellow on SuperAmoled looks orange
Nick, 01 Apr 2013Boy, the Sharp LCD TFT panel wipe the floor with your beloved SAMoled panel that's a fact!!! ... moreLOL, in witch ways does TFT LCD screen wipe floor over the Super AMOLED screen?
Doesn't matter who have made the screens, TFT LCD is TFT LCD no matter how many arguments you have. Yeah yeah, OMG, it's Sharp who have made the best screen to XPERIA Z, but that doesn't matter, because as long it's TFT LCD, it will be horrible compared to the other IPS LCD and Super AMOLED screens no matter what.
TFT LCD screens will always have horrible colors and viewing angles compared to IPS LCD and Super AMOLED.
I don't even believe you have tried any phones with a Super AMOLED screens at all.
I was thinking the same as you when i was buying the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10i phone. I though the screen was pretty good, but in reality it was horrible.
