AnonD-32581, 05 Dec 2012than why is it the most popular phone and most demanding phone out there?In what universe is the 920 the most popular and demanding? Lol
No wonder, nokia faked their lumia 920 shots. The real deal was mediocre at best. Camera should be the seeling point of the 920 but it turns out its a dissappointment.
Let's boycott Nokia's wp8.
So that they will adopt plan B-"Android"
Anonymous, 04 Dec 2012Mono audio recording in the video camera? What a joke, seriously...Yeah, the same as iPhone 5. :-(
Screen quality is superb. No issues
Xpress Browser is available for the Lumia 920 , if you just go through betalabs.nokia.com
Gsm arena forgot to let you guys know that Nokia is aware of day time camera quality and are addressing the issue. Once that's sorted it will be best smartphone camera
Wow, talk about the hype bubble bursting!!
Screen is average, the main feature is camera and if your honest with yourself iphone 5 kills the 920 camera, and maybe even sgs3 is better than the Nokia.
Then to top it off, it's ugly, huge, double the weight (all the extra weight and not better screen or camera?). Complete fail. 225 GPU?? Great... iPhone and SGS3 smash this phone into next week.
it's not pure view, but it's PURE BRICK :pppppp
Really disappointed about daylight camera performance and even more about audio quality. Was waiting for this for 4 months now and nothing. Guess I'll have to wait for Optimus G to come to Europe and then depending on its pricing go for it or for Nokia N9 (you just can't go wrong with that one).

camera quality in daylight is bad, shame:(
love my 920 lol i still have my old iphone 4 but after using 920 it looks and fell like a cheap toy and audio is great if you turn onn dolby headphone sound enhancement i felt it was better than my iphone because of the bass because if you have a iphone you know what happens when the the volume is all the way up it started making your ears feel like they are going to pop after 5 or six minutes

However, the Widgets introduced to the touchscreen interface by Maemo/Android certainly are a great boost in the usability. The tiles in the Windows Phone are just like a mix of icons with widgets, much better than just a flat and boring menu with nothing more thain plains icons that doesn't show any kind of information.
(But I got to agree that the audio quality and mostly the camera are disappointing)
My God. iRiver mp3 player for 30$ plays better than this so called "smart-phone". And what happend to camera? I expected much better quality from Nokia and 8Mpix, even old E5 makes better pics.
About Windows. No, tiles are not the way the user interface should be done. It is just not usable, not clear, stupid and ugly.
You can of course believe Ballmer, that tiles are great, and you can also use axe to shave your face. But you feel inside, that there are somehow much better ways to do this. That's why Apple reinvented touch controllable UI and the rest of the world just follow the best UX pattern. Period.
"We'll go right ahead and rip the band aid off for you - the photos are average." "Videos have the same oversaturated colors and smudgy details that troubled the still camera." "Audio is recorded in mono" "Sadly, the Nokia Lumia 920 audio output wasn't particularly great or worthy of the flagship status of the device."
808 still the best camera phone.
Mono audio recording in the video camera? What a joke, seriously...
I must say I'm disapointed after reading this review, mostly from the screen and the daylight camera performance... Now, I'm really confused on what smartphone I should buy...
Anyway, great review by GSMArena, as always...
