Phone reviews are always subjective, so what I am writing here would be against other's opinion.
Firstly I want to talk about the phone physical build. Lumia 920 is one of the best built phone from Nokia. No other company than Nokia can come up with such solid built phones. I have been using variety of Nokia phones till now, and what I really feel good about Nokia phone are it's solid feel and Lumia 920 feel really good at hand. It is so ergonomically designed that you wont hurt your hand.
The operating system i.e. Windows Phone 8 is one of the coolest and robust OS release by Microsoft. Windows Phone has enough softwares to meet my needs, I really get amazed by people talk about less apps comparing to Anroid or iOS, I feel that with the current pace at which Apps are growing they will surely reach the top pretty soon. To be frank for any app which is not present I always have the IE10 to browse to.
The camera - No words to describe it is the best camera till now, the Pure View camera technology with OIS, it is best thing to have in a modern smart phone. I would say give 10/10 for that.
The phone's display is also one of the highlight - The pure motion HD+ gives the most pleasing reading experience on phone. The phone glass panel which takes less finger prints and oil gives a superb feeling while scrolling, gaming etc.
Music + Video - I watch mainly Youtube videos and this gives me a wonderful experience on that. And for videos which are there on my PC, most of the video formats can be played by the phone.
the battery is by far the longest I've experienced BUT there is a catch.
It lasts me for 2 FULL DAYS under following conditions
1) switch off location services when not in use
2) switch off bluetooth when not in use
3) switch off NFC (always off)
4) use 2G data instead of 3G.
with 3G, the battery fails to make it even through a full day. But with 2G, it makes it for 2 days with the regular GMAIL and Exchange mail push @ 1 hour sync.
Regular usage involves: facebook, web browsing, photo and video for about an hour each per day.
I agree, it freezes for no reason and the biggest problem is you just have to live with it. Since the Battery is non-removable, the way to switch it off /reboot is to hold the power key pressed for 10 seconds simultaneously with the volume key pressed on the minus side. This is what I was told at Nokia Care. It did work this way, but why it freezes, God knows !!
I think these peoples are saying not gud Lumia 920 without hand experience.currently iam using L 820 its a very gud phone one the issue iam facing battery backup,i can get 20 hour only (daily i can checked internet,call,music,videos,camera)
vivekpandit, 09 Feb 2013I hv taken lumia 920 7 days back, but today its not geting on, what should I do.Nokia premotor says: nokia has just stopped sales the 820,920.will come aftr updating.will solve issues battery and camera clarity.
richi, 09 Feb 2013it has wireless charging, i bet the other smart phones will take 2 - 3 years more to develop.nexus 4 indroduced wireless charging 3 months before 920 released
Iels2003, 09 Feb 20131 Now customisation of notification tones
2 very poor calendar ( black , small )
3 SMS limi... moreThe phone itself is the only one boasting floating lens technology, one of the rare ones supporting wireless charging and the only one currently having a screen with a refresh rate of 60Hz with a super sensitive touch screen. Nokia did a great job!
What you're complaining about is the OS, aka the operating system (it's the software if you still don't understand). Any complaints about that should go directly to Microsoft.
Besides, Windows Phone OS WILL get an upgrade that will solve many issues and introduce new features!
Does the bluetooth of this phone works normaly, someone told me that this phone does not have a bluetooth at all, you can only download frm pc
shubh.., 09 Feb 2013nokia lumia 920 - is a biggest joke from nokia hi hi hinope, u're the joke here
richi, 09 Feb 2013it has wireless charging, i bet the other smart phones will take 2 - 3 years more to develop.Yeah the wireless charging is great, it works perfect. The google nexus 4 from LG has it also. But it's true it's something new at the moment. I got my wireless charger for free, just put it on the charger and it begins immediately.
the Main demirit of 920: the battery backup is the shitty-est in the history of smartphone industry. Now tell me guys, do you really think that Nokia knows magic and "Only Nokia phones battery backup is gr8" ? Hmm. It proves that Windows Phone OS is more battery hungrier than android and actually nokia knows no magic. I haven't seen any Windows Phone user yet who is extremely happy with his battery 'pack' up. Lumias arent power ranger. So whats the point of saying windows phone os consumes less juice than android when your windows phones cant serve more juice than similar android gangs?
I hv taken lumia 920 7 days back, but today its not geting on, what should I do.
[deleted post]First try and than say.
I have Iphone 5 , SG3 , Note 2 , and HTC one and I now what I say.
Lumia 920 have to goo long way to be on pare with top phones.
1 Now customisation of notification tones
2 very poor calendar ( black , small )
3 SMS limitation ( from contact only one number )
4 houndsound don't work
5 watsupp is very basic ( now sound , very poor smiles , now back ground )
6 phone is always on during charging ( limit buttery live )
And this is a best phone ????
Niece marketing strategy and excellent bild quality and a lot of limitation .
To be competitive Nokia need much more than this .
