Alui, 06 Sep 2012Nokia shares lost about 13% in value after the launch of these phones.Nobody can explains us how is that related with the launch of a wireless charging dual-core Windows Phone 8 device with City Lens etc... but yes , they did drop.
It is a good thing the financial analyst can also influence what we buy since they are always right ... ;( and we can't think for ourselves, and it's easier to check the shares' graph than the specs sheet or make up our mind at the store .... where phone companies should compete
hello every one...
so we finally have big guys from NOKIA, well i think 920 is just great ( well the 820 too).
I see some people are worried about these things...
1. no micro sd.
well 920 got a inbuilt 32gb disk space and additional 7gb (so u got approx 40gb) , hmmmmmm i don't think many people will need more disk space than that. more than enough for an average user and just enough for a heavy user.
2. not quad core.
its true that these are not quad core but guys don't miss that these monsters have krait cores, i'm sure u guys have seen the performance of krait cores. becoz if u consider other dual cores, krait cores will be the best. so dnt worry about that.
3. NO radio.
well i haven't seen many people using their smart phone to listen to the radio, but guys i honestly dnt know about how many people listen to the radio with their smart phone. so i'll just leave it. (try using the internet radio.)
4. NO HDMI
absolutely correct, i agree. HDMI connection is important but it lacks HDMI. lets just hope that upcoming devices get it.
5. no shock proof & no water proof.
i dont know wether this device is water proff or not but i feel this device can take hit, its covered with polycarbonate
Obviously, Nokia's focus in the design is to make the phones really stand out against the competition of black and white smartphones.
The new Lumia's have very competitive specs sheet, certainly on par with the others but I really miss their metal-clad E-series phones. When the Ativ S was announced, E Series immediately came to mind.
I thought Nokia should bring back BUSINESS in the game: I want METAL LUMIA!!!!!
First of all i love this phone! Great design and great innovations, but something is missing and i just don't no why:
1) QuadCore: it doesn't worry me too much because i think it will be sufficient
2) MicroSD: why not??!!
3) HDMI: again why not?!! my current sonyericsson xperia arc s has one...
4) FM transmitter: i simply don't get it even my old nokia n32 has one...
Great smartphone but why the hell didn't Nokia put the above mentioned hardware on it?
the price for the 920 in Belgium is going to be 599 euros. I'd rather go for the samsung ativ, it's got a sd card slot for 559 euros
DM, 06 Sep 2012No one can come even close to Nokia when it comes to Mobile Hardware design........LOL..Xperia's design is much better. this is just a yellow brick
Anonymous, 06 Sep 2012These Lumias are for sure a pair of excellent phones, but do not have what it takes to make a ... moreGood points,I wonder though why would you still need an SD card when you have a whopping 32GB reserved for you?
TruthSeekr, 06 Sep 2012These are only the beginning...like someone else said WP8 isn't even available yet. Of course ... more"And with a feature-list like this (pureview, HD+, built-in wireless charging) they've got a winner. Maybe two."
A smartphone isn't just the hardware it is made of, the software is just as important as the hardware.
They have showcased pretty impressive novelties, but do not forget they are pushing/forcing along with those novelties the WP8.
If they stuck to being a true phone manufacturer (that is, one that doesn't make exclusive deals that binds them to some marginal OS, but rather one that makes products according to their consumers tastes) their phones would probably sell like hotcakes in their Android variants.
But they haven't and now, first of all, they need to convince the crowd to buy WP8 and only then showcase their hardware.
Anonymous, 06 Sep 2012These Lumias are for sure a pair of excellent phones, but do not have what it takes to make a ... moreNice,
But i like what Nokia have given us for specs.
Balance. I would of liked a microSD slot for the 920.
But Nokia say i don't need it, then i agree.
I'll learn to be ok with that.
Thank you Elop finger nail smooth and i can wear gloves
to use my phone!
I usually wear snow gloves for a fashion statement , but i can use my phone at the same time, lag free haters!
No one can come even close to Nokia when it comes to Mobile Hardware design........
Based on the fact that my lumia 800 attracts attention, friends are all impressed with the beautiful design, and everybody who has handled my phone irrespective of the os they use, are impressed and they'll be like WOW this thing is beautiful, the images are so sharp and its snappy and the camera is clear e.t.c and many of them were surprised to see how a phone with real social network integration works Yeah based on that fact and my love for Nokia, I am getting lumia 920 as soon as it is released
xenon flash uses more battery than led flash... consumers usually complain on batery life thats why company used led instead of xenon for user friendly device
Jason, 06 Sep 2012I just don't understand. Is it really that difficult to put a Xenon flash there instead of a ... moreNo, it's super easy to put Xenon flash - you just make the phone thick. Nokia obviously didn't want to do that with the new Lumias, but the 808 PureView was already going to be pretty chunky because of the camera, so they went ahead and put Xenon.
