Product Review: Nokia Lumia 920

The Lumia 920 dominated Nokia's presentation at Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 press event recently, with the smaller Lumia 820 barely getting a look-in. It forges new Windows Phone ground with wireless charging support and a highly sensitive screen you can use with gloves.

When Nokia unveiled Lumia 820 many customers across the world were amazed with it function but the gadget isn't meant as the Finnish firm's flagship handset - that accolade belongs to the Lumia 920 - but this colourful Windows Phone 8 smartphone is impressive nonetheless.

The Nokia Lumia 920 includes the latest Nokia PureView camera, capturing five times more light than competitor smartphones for bright pictures without flash, even indoors and at night. It also features built-in wireless charging, making it easy to keep the battery topped up throughout the day, as well as a better-than-HD display. The Nokia Lumia 820, Nokia Lumia 810 and Nokia Lumia 822 offer exchangeable covers in a range of vibrant colours, including the option to add wireless charging.

The Nokia Lumia 920 comes in yellow, red, grey, white and black. The Nokia Lumia 820 goes two steps further with yellow, red, grey, cyan, purple, white and black models.

Like the Nokia Lumia 920, they boast the world's most sensitive touchscreen and Nokia ClearBlack display technology for easy visibility in the brightest sunlight. All phones come with the full suite of Nokia navigation applications, including Nokia City Lens, as well as Nokia Music for unlimited music svtreamed directly to the phone.

Nokia Lumia 920 will appeal to anyone who enjoy a large and clear screen; rely on turn-by-turn voice navigation, need 32GB storage, often wear gloves, want to dive into wireless charging or take a lot of low-light photos. Those who seek granular photo control, prefer a light phone, rely on voice dictation for composing e-mail and notes or ant a mountain of apps and games at the ready might skip it.

The Nokia Lumia 920 is able to take in five times more light than competing smartphones without using flash, making it possible to capture clear, bright pictures and video indoors and at night. It also compensates for hand movement while the photo is being taken. The Lumia 920's 1-megapixel front-facing camera doesn't take stellar shots, but the self-portrait I snapped was passable, and it's certainly good enough for video chatting.

The only real downside I’ve found to this gadget is its weight, nothing more.
