The release of Nokia Lumia 920 was bound to become a headline grabber for more reasons than one. Lumia 920 smartphone is seen by many as Nokia’s last-ditch effort at surviving in the smartphone industry. While the speculations leading to the release were saturated with online leaks, the final product seems to pale in comparison with the expected one. While it’s true that Lumia 920 doesn’t have any singularly astounding feature, it certainly comes with a collection of unique features that puts Nokia Lumia 920 among smartphones leaders.
The Look And Feel:
The Nokia Lumia 920 comes with a poly carbonate body and a glossy finish that strangely doesn’t slip off your hands while using. The color and design, similar to previous Lumia models, is bright. Since the colors are moulded in to the polycarbonate body it is unlikely that the color of the smartphone will fade. The phone certainly feels sturdy and solid with ceramic keys that are designed to keep the phone scratch free.
The Lumia 920 features a mammoth curved 4.5 inch touch screen display with 1280 X 768 resolutions. The claim that this phone has one of the brightest displays is something we need to work on. One more feature that has managed to grab everyone’s attention is the fact that the phone comes with a new ClearBlack display filter that helps in cutting down on glare.
Nokia has added an extra touch to its touch screen. With the touch screen looking as impressive as ever, its response to touch is simply superb. The PureMotion HD Plus technology in Nokia Lumia 920 makes videos appear flicker-free and extremely brilliant.
The Power and Performance:
One major selling point of Nokia Lumia 920 smartphone is the fact that it’s one of the first smartphone to work on Windows Phone 8 Operating System. Apart from Windows Phone 8 OS, the phone also comes equipped with an impressive dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor.
The Wireless Charging and Battery:
The 920 comes with an impressive 2000mAh battery. The wireless charging feature has been resurrected in Lumia 920. The wireless charging, working on the Qi standard, charges devices using magnetic induction. Nokia, in partnership with third party manufacturers, has come out with an array of charging accessories. These include a charging pillow and a speaker set. The speaker set helps you listen to music while continuing to charge your phone.
The Camera and Connectivity:
Lumia 920 comes with an 8 mega pixel rear camera. While the 8mp sensor is not something we can boast of, the photos seem to be remarkably blur-free even when they are taken while walking or travelling. The reason behind this super steady camera is its f2.0 aperture and image stabilization capability.
This phone comes with a single slot to access SIM card. You won’t be able to add to the existing space since this phone doesn’t come with a SD card slot. This phone supports 4G connectivity and NFC connectivity.
All the Extras:
Lumia 920 has some more interesting features in its kitty. Point this smartphone’s camera at any place in the city to get detailed information about that particular block. This phone comes with a data use monitoring system, Skype integration and a powerful backup system.
While we are yet to be convinced if the wireless charging accessories will be a hit among users, the charging technology may get a boost if this technology is widely accepted by accessory makers. It remains to be seen if Lumia 920’s camera is impressive enough to thwart the competition from Apple and Samsung.
At the outset, the Lumia 920 is certainly a good phone to own even though there is nothing in this phone that makes it stand out from the rest. The two factors that may determine Nokia’s efforts at capturing the smartphone market are the price and support for apps. Until then, following Nokia’s moves closely is the only move we can make.
