Summary: With one of the best camera experiences on the market — and the best low-light photos on a modern smartphone — it’s easy to recommend the Lumia 920 to a certain demographic. While we’re disappointed that the phone only comes in black, we look forward to a time in the future when we can purchase the yellow (or red, or white, or cyan, or…) version. By then, perhaps, 46 of the top 50 apps will be available, and we’ll be singing a different tune.
Lumia 920 review: It’s big, it’s really big, but oh so sexy
8 March 2014
Excerpt: Turns out if you say “I haven’t used a Windows Phone” loud enough someone will send you one. While floating about in my quasi-world of “I know everything imaginable because my iPhone is awesome” a giant Nokia Lumia 920 landed on my lap. I can’t stress this enough — this phone is big. I am not sure what Nokia was trying to do here — take us back to the old days where phones were as big as a person’s head?
Summary: The Nokia Lumia 920 is the company’s third attempt at launching the definitive Windows Phone. In April, Nokia and Microsoft tried to convince the world that the Lumia 900 and Windows Phone 7.5 was that device, but that claim had a shorter expiration date than anybody realized. Its days were numbered, as Windows Phone 8 was an under-the-hood overhaul that wasn’t compatible with the phone. The Lumia 920’s launch was mishandled at best.
Pros: PureView camera takes incredible low-light shots, Large, responsive screen, Nokia software enhancements
Cons: Very heavy and bulky, App ecosystem remains deficient, Some issues with LTE reception
Excerpt: I have to say the AT&T Nokia Lumia 920 Windows 8 Cell Phone gives me hope. I was wondering what Windows 8 phones would be like and so I had my editor ask the fine folks at AT&T for a couple to try out. I really like the way Windows 8 works on a cell phone. I really like it. That said the Nokia Lumia 920 is a step in the right direction but I don’t think I’d say it was there yet.
Summary: Locally, the Lumia 920 is by far the best that Windows Phone 8 and Nokia have to offer. And based on our rather short time with it, we can definitely say that it deserves to carry the flag for the Finnish company.
Summary: This is a beautiful phone with a few flaws, most of which can be fixed through software updates. Ignore the complaints about how heavy it is. You can slip it into your pocket and never know it's there. The integration with contact lists from Facebook and LinkedIn is so nice it alone makes me want to stay with WP.
That said, this is my new phone. For its battery flaws, once I shut off LTE, it's as reliable as any 3G phone. I can't tear my eyes off the screen.
Conclusion: All of the data AdDuplex gathered and analyzed is collected from 494 Windows Phone apps that use AdDuplex SDK v.2. While it might not be a representative sample by itself, it is certainly a piece of information which provides some meaningful indications month after month.
Excerpt: The Lumia 920 takes everything that Nokia learned from the Lumia 900 and 800 (and arguably the ill-fated N9) and super-sizes it. The overall design and engineering is excellent the 4.5-inch 1280 x 760-pixel display is crisp and vibrant. WP8 isn’t the radical reinvention that WP7 was – like the Lumia 920 itself it’s the same thing only more so. The optically stabilised camera has good low-light performance alongside crisp general photo taking.
