Anonymous, 03 Dec 2012the design look good the screen and the camera and also the specs..but the os (wp8) is suck.. ... morejust like android.I have galaxy S2 and S3 but get bored fast.now I use Nokia 808,It has the best camera and all the apps I need.
The review seems to be taking a while. It's been out for a few weeks, not a week.
taking too long to review, damn this...how many days and weeks maybe months for us to wait GSMARENA?
The review has took to long. I have had my lumia for nearly 4 weeks. To be honest i don't think it will matter how gsm review it now. There to slow of the mark. Our is that the intention here. I guess we will see what is said. Nokia lumia 1000 (oh that sounds good) be out for goodness sake.
Nokia lumia 920 is one of the best phones I use ,I used the iphone 5 and the s3 sure they lighter but when you have the lumia in your hand it makes no difference ,and wp8 is developing apps and would be around the same amount as android and Ios in a few months...just one thing missing from this phone in my opinion and that is it should of been a quad core krait .....that would of defintly made it the phone of the century ,LG is looking pretty good I must say goodjob ...samsung is defintly king but watch out here comes nokia.Nokia is thinking about making a tablet once they back on the map ,and I think the lumia 920 has done that so a tab is next people .
Not sure why GSM guys have not posted a full review of Lumia 920...whats stopping them in doing so can be anybody's guess..!!!!
the design look good the screen and the camera and also the specs..but the os (wp8) is suck..
its os is have a lot of features
missing for the people whats a true smartphone...
this phone only good for taking pictures,messaging and social media that can offer of other os there..
people buy it because its new look of os that you get bored after using it after 3months...
people buy it also because it is nokia and bcause the smooth flow of its ui..
but when you notice it...
the os the browserthe whole system of wp8 is still INCOMPLETE called smart..
a great device...welcome back Nokia ....its preorders have exceeded the iphone 5's orders...
weren't there rumors about nokia producing a tablet?, is this gonna happen soon
hooray! it is coming to Indonesia at 6.500.000 IDR or 520 EUR in 22 or 23 december. Now the pre-order has begun at only 480 EUR or 400 EUR (with contract). can't wait to see them in my country :D

Anonymous, 03 Dec 2012Google is blocking WP8 from accessing maps.google.com, not Nokia here. Google is very anti com... moreOf course not Nokia is blocking access to Google maps; Microsoft is blocking the access to Google maps not Google, Goggle will just gain WP 8 users to use their system. Microsoft designed on purpose their web browser to be incompatible with Google maps. Each browser must have a signature and runtime for the scrips the website is based on and Microsoft decided to sign the browser differently from Windows OS tablet and desktop also to lack the implementation of runtime for scripts that implement Google maps.
So it in not Google which blocks the access to Google maps, it is no Nokia, it is Microsoft which blocks the access to Google maps creating in WP8 an incompatible web browser with the code that implements Google maps. If Google would block the access to WP8 then no other third party app would work with Google maps. All Microsoft would do is not not sign the browser with other name than Windows 8 for desktop and then Goole would not know whether the connection is with WP 8 or Win 8 on desktop. So Microsoft is the one which wishes to promote Nokia maps blocking Google maps.
Google is blocking WP8 from accessing maps.google.com, not Nokia here. Google is very anti competitive. The only app they have is Google Search.
There are detractors here and the silence about compass in default maps and the silence about the block to Google maps in WP 8 web browser I mean IE is a fact which gsm arena has to speak about otherwise all reviews they make are waste of time to pay attention for.
AnonD-73681, 02 Dec 2012You really have no idea about Nokia maps and offline navigation.
1. They are two separate app... moreI wrote about Nokia HERE and it does not have compass integrate on map although the hardware has it.
Why don't we focus on the maps which are on default with the phone as you unpack it and such maps do not have compass.
Why Nokia using WP8 cannot access web version of Google maps in its web browser and nobody seem to have try to see google maps in WP8 Internet Explorer browser? Nobody was curious to see and find that you are blocked to use Google maps on WP 8 not even on web version and why all al okay with such restriction is very distrurbing.
