Here Are Some Positive Observations about the Nokia Lumia 920
Nokia’s flagship Windows Phone may do better than originally thought. Demand has been higher than expected and it maybe because of a few key features that people found excellent. Here are some positive words about the Nokie Lumia 920, taken from various reviews.
- “Beautiful body and unique appearance. Excellent screen quality. Best camera for low-light photos, fashionable color schemes.” (TechSpot)
- “Overall, the Lumia 920 is a very solid phone. It feels good in my hand and fits well in my pocket. As I mentioned, it’s a bit heavy because of its support for built-in wireless charging, using the Wireless Power Consortium’s Qi standard. I’m not sure everyone will like the weight tradeoff—I don’t find plugging in a device to be all that difficult—but it is certainly a cool feature.” (PCMag)
- “Marketing aside, this screen is gorgeous. It’s a 4.5-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1280 x 768, offering a slightly higher pixel density than the iPhone 5′s Retina Display. Text is crisp and though the pixels don’t appear to sit as close to the surface as on the iPhone 5, the difference is minor. Really, the only knock I can deliver against it is that it does dim a bit when you’re looking at it at sharp angles. Given that the ClearBlack technology involved polarizing the glass, it’s not a huge surprise nor should it cause problems for users.” (TheVerge)
- “The Lumia 920′s 8MP camera is the best we’ve seen in the mainstream smartphone market. (Nokia does have a phone available with a 42MP camera, but it was never officially launched in New Zealand.) The camera takes bright, sharp pictures that look great. The downside is that there’s also software that “corrects” those pictures by enhancing certain colours and sharpening the image further.” (PCWorld NZ)
- “This is a very nice handset indeed. It feels like a high-quality device, and it feels like a sturdy device that will stand up to being lugged about in a handbag.” (The Guardian)
- “No wonder this phone is so big, there’s a lot in it. Some hands really will find it too big or too heavy, but it offers a tremendous user experience. This is arguably the best smartphone Nokia has built, and probably the most advanced phone available. It mixes solid reliability with moments of surprise and delight.” (The Independent)
- “Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 is used as the operating system. We recently scrutinized it in the review of HTC’s Windows Phone 8X. The handling is the same: The OS is intuitive in use and features a stylish user interface. The preinstalled applications are a unique characteristic in the same mobile operating system. Nokia has a fewnifty treats in this field.” (NotebookCheck)
And as a way to conclude all the positives that have been mentioned:
“The Nokia Lumia 920 build quality is great and features an elegant and minimalist design, with the most subtle branding to be found in the smartphone market.
Its excellent battery life (when the GPS is OFF) makes us almost forget about its heavy and large body, a drawback that ultimately allowed the Nokia team to add an efficient optical stabilization feature in the form of a floating lens.
Windows Phone 8 is an excellent mobile operating system, one of most responsive on the market, and we highly appreciate the quality of its aesthetics, even if the user interface would need to be improved in a few areas.
If you can tolerate the weight, and if the apps you need are available, the Lumia 920 can deliver a delightful experience coupled with an excellent battery life and ultra-fast user interface. What’s not to like?” (ubergizmo)
