I've had the Lumia 920 for nearly 2 months and it's been awesome so far.
It's been years since I've used a windows product, and the WP8 OS is a worthy welcome back. OS is super smooth and best of all, stable. MS really got it right this time. There's still some kinks to be worked out, such as a proper notification centre (swipe to the left from homescreen is where it should be), and closing open apps from multitask view is a much needed addition too.
Offline maps speaks for itself and is lightyears ahead of the competition. Nokia music has been a surprise hit for me. Just awesome. All the latest music, a free download to listen to offline.
The camera however, is just good. I had an N8 before this and photos were nothing short of stunning. The Lumia 920's camera isn't an usurper. However, it really does excel in low light conditions and has delivered some fantastic dusk shots. OIS is great too. I recorded a video inside a plane taking off from JFK airport a few days ago, totally smooth and the colors captured were beautiful (anyone travelling knows that it's very very bumpy taking off and landing at the airport).
Overall, it's still a very underrated phone. GSMArena does great reviews (if not the best) but they downplayed some of the best qualities this phone offers.
I also have a Nexus 7 tablet running some of the best specs and latest software. It has nothing on the Lumia. Really. Too many similar, vague and useless apps to be of any real argument. Android 4.2 is bearable at best. It's the only and likely last droid product I ever buy into. Lag and OS stability kill the overall experience.
Only a matter of time before WP8 really takes off. The majority of people in the world don't really care about phones. But this is as easy to use as the original iPhone and works with the majority of the world's computers, so, yeah... Lumia 920 FTW!
The Nokia Lumia 920 is just by far the best handset that is available, splat!! No doubt about it, its the easiest handset to use! I know I sound biased but, come on, not even the HTC Droid DNA and Samsung Galaxy Note 2 can beat its simplistic ways of usage! The screen is bar none the best I've ever laid eyes on, I mean retina display and super amoled plus are vivid and all but, there's something about the Clear Black Display that boggles my mind! its not eye restraining at all, not like the retina display and amoled,they're just too eye restraining and the colours look too over saturated. Now, to the software. Windows phone 8. I've got to admit that I was A TAD BIT disappointed because The Modern UI hasn't really changed much from the Metro UI, all they did was resizable tiles, but that's just the UI, overall the OS has that mature feel, in fact, its even more mature then IOS AND ANDROID, it doesn't have the glitz and glamour of the latter OS's but somehow, it feels more finely tuned. Power wise, its doesn't have the raw power of the above mentioned phone but, this phone kicks serious ass. Not one time the 920 showed any sign of lagging whatsoever, whereas the "QUAD CORED" phones still show lag and sluggishness. Overall I would give the Lumia 920 a 9.8 due to the lack of apps in the app store. But who the fuck gives a shit about apps when the device itself is already a killer!! nice Job nokia, nice job!!
Vish, 11 Feb 2013It should have FM Radio the basic entertainment system for indian people.I heard its coming. Nokia have the software built in
It should have FM Radio the basic entertainment system for indian people.
Nokia should produce some AFFORDABLE quality phablet with giant size battery +user REPLACEABLE facility for all heavy net browsers instead of less portable TABLET.
.....from the Year 2013, PHABLET might go neck to neck with FLAGSHIP smartphone markets but never tablet would be
