Best smartphone on the market right now. No really, it is. If you haven't tried out this phone, go to your local store and try it, because I swear you'll love it. I left Android for Windows Phone, because it's nice, colorful, fun, and not the same boring icons. Plus 920 itself is a top phone.
A good phone from Nokia after so long time
All the best Nokia!!!
The only shortfall of this phone the following:
1. The lack of SD Card
2. There is no menu to input (STATIC IP Address) very important to me...
3. based on my experience (very slow facebook, very slow skype) updating to internet, maybe because of application itself...
But over-all I like this phone over my S3 & iPhone...
anurag, 29 Jan 2013i plan 2 buy, guyz shud i?must buy item for 2013 year!!!
i already get the yellow colour 920~
Extraordinary news from Nokia! They are working on a project about a material called 'graphene' which can make a layer one atom thick and is the strongest thing ever made. They will use it in their future smartphones.
Just try to imagine how the trends will change!
anurag, 29 Jan 2013i plan 2 buy, guyz shud i?Don't worry just purchase it
Anurag, go ahead, i have been usig it for nearly 2 months. Its smooth and better in all respects than iphone which is a laxury item for a show off. Samsugn S III is also very good one. I believe window phone would impoove much more with the coming updation and with that NL 920 will be the No.1 smart phone.

Just imagine someone saying "I owned this device. It's boring, you can't do this and you can't do that."
Well people would think other good reviews are all BS and an actual owner had nothing positive to say.

does it comes with office communicator in itself like some other nokia devices or we would have to get it from somewhere??
I dont get it why would anyone choose a closed source OS with an ugly looking phone, with unrealistic color contrast captured by its camera, 1.5ghz dual core cpu, no sd slot over an open source and much more popular OS like android, with a quad core 1.4ghz, oled screen, with actual sd slot and hilariously even though its packing almost twice as much computing power than that closed source gadget it also manages to outlast it in battery.
Granted the lumia might have a bit better sound quality, but its far from premium sound quality and that alone is not even close to make up for the fact that its specs are just outdated since the first day this "flagship" phone released.
Nokia did some stupid things while designing phones in Symbian era, i guess they didnt change at all.
how do you set your own message tone, there seems you cannot do it, can you do it with the portico update?
nokia going windows was fine, but!!!! I also think dropping meego was a huge mistake....
I was referring to the new advertised technology that Nokia are using in their handsets to gain recognition and to compete at a higher level against the other major competitors on the market.
The overall Lumia 920 sales figures will reflect what the customer thinks of the merchandise, it's early days yet as the phone has only been out for short of 2 months.
Yes there are a lot of freebies on offer with Nokia that you don't get with Apple iphones, having owned Apple computers I don't see anything new in owning one of their phones, I find there is nothing special about them.
As for Android, there's a lot of 'custom' choices an owner can have which makes owning one of their devices a little more interesting, but Android is a complicated operating system, but has many many great free apps on offer.
I found the Windows enviroment on a mobile phone easy to navigate, no complications or headaches.
If Nokia developers can learn from Android and take what makes the Android phones popular ie lots of free apps and custom settings, the Lumia will be a great device in the future, it has a lot of potential.
I don't think my review was boring...I think it was realistic in terms of me having used the device as a 1st hand owner / consumer. We can all read the great reviews and specifications this phone has on this website and others. No-one can take that away from Nokia and what they have produced.
That's what prompted me to buy on in the 1st place.
I don't see the point in repeating all the 'good' topics / points about the phone when they've already been covered on the main specification listings on this website and others. That's what prompts the customer to make their purchase on.
There just seems a lack of support and choices in customability / apps for the Lumia at the minute. If there was as much for the Lumia as the Android devices, this phone would be a top seller.
I was quite hoping someone was going to reply with a solution to the minor points I'd picked up on, but again it's early days.
AnonD-106478, 28 Jan 2013As for the 'hype'...it was all about knocking Samsung / Apple off the top of the phone ratings... moreBy "phone ratings" you mean in sales? I don't think how much the device has sold necessarily has anything to do with how good it is. As I told you, this device gives much more options compared to the iPhone. (I didn't even count Office, free navigation app, free music streaming, etc.) but hasn't sold as much as iPhone, and that is irrelevant to the end user and the review you gave.
I agree that there are few weird shortcomings (like not having a separate volume control for ringtone and music) but again, the device is far from the original review you gave.
I feel you commented having an Android mentality. Just expecting a file explorer (which I haven't looked for, but I assume you can find an app for in Marketplace) gives me that vibe.
And no, I don't have any interest in arguing with you. Just felt like expressing what I think.
P.S. the iPhone is actually still more expensive despite lacking a lot of what I pointed out. So your review would have been better balanced if you counted all that positive stuff and didn't come up with downright "boring" to describe the device.
