Nokia Lumia 920 is the second generation Windows phone to be released by Nokia after the success of the Nokia Lumia 800. The Lumia 920 is a much improved version of the smart phone and it shows that Nokia has taken this segment of Window’s phone to be serious business. Below is provided the detailed review of the phone.
Design & Hardware
This is a heavy phone, and is big in size. Thus it demands attention from users who use their phones extensively. The thickness of the phone stands at a uniform size at 0.4 inch, with the body made of poly carbonate. With the phone weighing at 6.5 ounces (close to 185 gm),one would feel the weight of the phone when they put it in their pockets or simply hold it against their ear for talking. This smart phone is 5.1 inch tall and 2.8 inch wide, which makes it slightly bulkier and taller than the Nokia 900. The poly carbonate body might be slightly slippery to hold so it can be safely said that one needs to have a firm grip to hold the phone.
The phone comes with a HD screen with 1280 x 768 pixels and the density of the pixels is around 332 pixels per inch. The screen quality is brilliant to say the least, and whether you are reading texts or watching movies or simply going through pictures the phone will work as magic. With the “Puremotion+ HD” technology, Nokia has move ahead of the AMOLED screen technology which they have used in the previous Lumia versions. The screen comes at 4.5 inches and will provide you feature like amazing screen sensitivity with which one can work on the screen even if you are wearing gloves or with your finger nails and the screen brightness increases automatically once you move outside in bright sunlight. So, this phone does help reducing the “outdoor glare” which a lot of phones seem to suffer from.
The OS is loaded with the now successful TAP+ send to share feature, different colour options, kid’s wallet, cloud content syncing and other features. In the sound system, this one comes with Dolby boosting and also an equalizer which looks at improving your musical experience.
The Lumia 920 also comes with wireless charging pads using which one simply has to place the phone on the pads and it starts charging. This charging pad doesn’t come up with any internal battery and the pad will only use power once you place the phone on it. Thus, you not only stay away from wires but also save precious electricity.
Pros and cons
The Nokia Lumia 920 has unique innovations like PureMotion display, wireless charging, etc. It has got a high resolution camera. But there are disadvantages of it as it does not feature a HDMI port. It is also a bit bulky.
Though with the new Lumia Nokia looks at capturing the smart phone market meant for the Windows phone segment, still it might not be good enough as there are others like HTC who have already come with a phone to challenge the Lumia 920. Also, the bulkiness might go down well with some people. And they might end up ignoring this piece.
