Vettichira Dymon, 21 Jan 2013who told u this fake news,,,my friend have this phone his l920 sapportting full hd like 1280*1... morefull hd screen resolution like xperia z dude!! Arc s with mx player can load any 1080 p video
I own this phone since two days ago and I love it, many many cool features it has.
Lets start with windows phone 8:
Microsoft has put the same OS of our desktop in mobile version, it even has the same directory path like C:/users and also program files just like windows PC.
The OS has many apps, enough for make the switch towards it.
As any new OS, there are still some issues that needs to be taken in account:
Notifications: There's now way to get past notifications, current notifications are displayed on the top but of you don't have a live title for that app that has an alert for you, you will not know if you get that top alert go. In order to not miss anything you have to place live title the app you want to get notified so when you see your home screen, that live title will have a number indicating the number of alerts from that app.
Apps: I was an early adopter for android when it came out in 2008 and I'm now one for windows phone 8 and I can tell that this OS has started way more prepared for the battle, WP will gain a lot of users because of the great buzz it's having and because its very eye candy.
and now let's talk about the hardware of the Lumia 920:
very good design, I really like what Nokia has done here, the camera is pureview so when you zoom in when you are going to take a picture, it will be less noise and won't appear to be that zoomed in.
note: you have to take the photo to actually see the final result.
low light camera is very very good, I take photos in the night and they look like were taken in the afternoon.
screen: retina display is very good, looks really nice and has that wow effect when you see it for first time.
the screen can be used with gloves and has sunlight readability, which means the screen is still viewable in direct sunlight.
battery life is so so, with hard usage I get 6 hours, with light usage like 12 hours and in stand by the phone reaches 30 something hours, congrats to Qualcomm and Microsoft for that stand by time.
(Stand by means not using the phone but still connected to 3G and running background apps like whatsapp and Skype.)
build quality is very good, I like the unibudy design but the weight is something to take account before buying, of course one will get used to it so its not a big deal.
so far that's it, I really recommend this phone, specially all the features it has like smart shoot, offline maps and offline turn by turn navigation, OFFLINE TRANSLATOR for the language you want, image and voice translation and music&TV identifier with Bing.
I haven't used NFC or the wireless charging as I don't have accessories for it.
bottom line: windows phone 8 is ready for prime time, all basic phone features that were missing in wp7 like USSD and reply by SMS are now here.
These is the phone that I will show to my friends and compare against theirs.

Jean.androidfan, 20 Jan 2013to everybody telling the android os lags this is a prove from a non android fan authority test... morebrader,
so according to this video, are you telling me that a quad core android are slower than dual core wp?
that is a speed test of browser and apps.
the android usually got lag because the background tasks (that's why it is need a quad core chip to support), and there's no use denying it because i'm an android and lumia 920 user, and i prefer my lumia now.
Advisor, 21 Jan 2013Windows Phone disappointed me so much. I am going to write down my experience with the phone o... morewell, actually you can just press the home button without closing what you are doing now, and it still running on the background, and just press the back button (for few seconds) and you can resuming what you are doing.
and about the wifi and bluetooth shortcut, you can just download an app for that and pin it to your live tiles.
come on, be a smart user... a smartphone without smart user is useless

Jean.androidfan, 20 Jan 2013maybe it's beautiful but totally fake ! Wp8 won't support full hd! LOL! Xperia z or nothingYour name suggests that you are an android fan, so please stay honest with it and stick to their forum, no need to peek here to see whether Lumia 920 is destroying android or not, android fans seems scared.
For my Indian friends,
Lumia 920 comes with Software version number 8.0.10211.204, it means we are updated to Portico Update, no need to check daily. Enjoy.

Windows Phone disappointed me so much. I am going to write down my experience with the phone overall, this will help people know some fundamental facts about the phone and the OS. It's sorry that it came out negative review:
1. Windows Phone doesn't let you quickly turn on/off blutooth/wireless. Which sucks because every time you need to turn them on/off you need to go to settings which is a long route. Also, the worst thing is when you open Internet Explorer and you forget to turn on your wireless, so you have to close the browser then go to settings and turn wireless on and then open IE again which will start from the main page.
2. Windows Phone is not a multi-tasking OS. For example, if you open Internet Explorer and suddenly you wanted to check your inbox messages you can't check messages until you close down internet explorer which sucks. Or if you playing a game and you want to send an email, you can't pause the game and come back to it later, so once you press windows icon or go back you will lose the app you have opened.
3. No silent mode. If you are in a class or a lecture, you can't put your phone on silent mode. The only option you have is vibrate to death. (so your teacher: turn the phone off Micheal).
4. No missed call notification. If you get missed call the phone won't give a LED notification, which also sucks.
5. Skype: you can sign in but you can't sign out, so you will get messages and calls all times and you can't even prevent it.
6. Too many apps ask to know your location in order to install the app. NO Privacy at all.
7. No clock screen saver. So you need to press the button to check out the time.
Now regaring the phone Lumia 920, it is perfect, everything is nice except the camera is normal and not as superb as described by reviewers. The camera does not zoom at all. I mean you can, but if you zoom 1mm you get blurry image.
Windows Phone ruined the Phone.
I am a Nokia fan since I was born (since the first Nokia phone). I have never used any other phone other than Nokia. So don't throw comments to me that I am a hater or an Android fan.
It is so sorry to say that WP8 doesn't have the fundamentals of a phone. Microsoft thinks this phone is some sort of computer tablets. It is a Phone guys.
Nokia N9 is still the best so far in my opinion.
