Recently Nokia introduced a phone Nokia Lumia 920 running on latest Windows phone 8 operating system. The operating system with the powerful processor of 1.5 GHz provides a smooth user experience to its users. Lumia 920 comes with some new technologies like Optical image stabilization using floating lens system and a wireless charging, Nokia Lumia 920 comes support induction charging. So here we go -
The Bold and Beautiful design - All the features of Lumia 920 comes inside a single piece of body made of a polycarbonate material called a mono block type body. This body looks really awesome but the only drawback is we can not manually remove its battery without going to its service center. Over all the design is something new, different from other phones. The high contrast color combinations makes it BOLD and beautiful. honestly, to me the Nokia Lumia 920 looks better than Samsung galaxy S3.
The Lumia 920 weighs about 185 gm, which is a lot more than that of its competitors - Samsung Galaxy s3 ( 133 gm ) and iPhone 5 ( 112 g ), It amazed me that Lumia 920 weighs more than what Samsung galaxy Note 2 weighs - 180 g. Nokia made the design so well, that you'll quickly become comfortable to handle Lumia 920 in your hand. Thickness-wise, 10.7 mm is a considerably thicker than that of the Galaxy S3 ( 8.6mm ) and Apple iPhone 5 ( 7.6 mm ). The Lumia 920 has a dedicated keys to turn on the phone ( power key ), A dedicated Camera key to quickly resume camera and snap pictures and a Volume control key.
So overall the design is so good, comes in 5 different colors ( Red, Yellow, White, Grey, Black )unlike only 2 as of galaxy s3 and iPhone5. The new BOLD design is getting appreciation from large base of users worldwide. So we can neglect the fact of heavy weight compared to its looks and feels.
The High Definition display -Lumia 920 got a big 11.43 cm ( 4.5 inch ) Capacitive Multi touch screen powered by a Pure motion HD+ display technology. The display of 1280 x 768 pixels provides a sharp 332 ppi pixel density which is better than that of the Galaxy S3 ( 306 ppi ) and iPhone 5 ( 326 ppi ). The display features more than 16 million colors and screen update date of 60 Hz means a seamless ( smooth ) experience of animations etc. The Lumia 920 display also packs with a Sunlight readability enhancements which makes it easy to read text under direct exposure of sun light. The HD screen uses Nokia's clear Black technology which uses sequence of polarizing layers to cut down the reflection making the device readable under bright sunlight. Also the screen is super sensitive.
The Nokia Lumia display got a lead, when compared with other smart-phones in its category. Nokia Lumia 920 got really high pii ( pixels per inch ) density even more than that of iPhone 5, That means more number of pixels packed in screen which provides a smooth and clear visual experience. Here are the display resolutions and screen size of other smart-phones in this category.
Powerful Snapdragon™ S4 Processor -The Lumia 920 is powered by a wonderful Snapdragon S4 Dual core processor clocked at a 1.5 GHz speed. As the lumia is running on a Windows Phone 8 it doesn't power to give smooth user experience. That is why the dual core 1.5GHz processor can easily power up the heavy HD games, and give really smooth interface for windows animations, and handy to quickly snap pictures by its HD camera. The another wonderful thing about the processor is both the processors are asynchronously tied up so each core runs independently resulting in seriously low energy consumption. Also a powerful 1 GB of RAM is powering Nokia Lumia 920.
As the Samsung got a quad-core processor, Lumia 920 falls bit behind the S3 in the matter of power. As the Windows OS requires less power to run the processor is a LOT powerful than required.
Photography and Video Recording - Primary Camera ( Rear ) - Nokia Lumia 920 got a primary camera of resolution 8.7 mega pixels with a dual LED flash light. The camera is powered by Nokia's Pure-View technology. This camera also comes with the features like - touch focus, Geo-tagging and more.. This camera can record videos up to FULL HD ( 1080p ) quality at the rate of 30 frames per second. The primary camera comes with new Optical Image stabilization with floating lens technology.
Secondary Camera ( Front ) - Yes, just like other smart phones Nokia's Lumia 920 also has a secondary camera on its front side, useful for video conversations, etc. The secondary camera is just 1.3 Mega Pixels and can record videos of HD quality ( 720p ) at the rate of 30 frames per second, best for HD video conversation.
Some of the great features of Nokia Lumia 920 - The induction charging is something revolutionary feature introduced in nokia lumia 920 smart-phone, which allows you to charge Nokia Lumia 920 battery without connecting it to wired circuit ( wireless ). Unlike digital stabilisation Optical Image stabilisation technique provides more stability to the lense and creates more accurate and clear images or Videos, in Lumia 920 Nokia used floating lens technology to optically stabilize images. It also paked with some other great features such as - Lifetime free voice-guided navigation support and the latest Windows Phone 8 Operating System.
What I disliked in Lumia 920 - Nokia's Lumia 920 surprisingly weighs about 185 g which is LOT heavier than its competitors( Samsung Galaxy s3 - 133 g and iPhone 5 - 112 g ). But No wonder this phone is heavier as there's a lot of stuff going into it. Some might find this phone heavy in their hands but the smooth user interface, also specially the induction charging ( Wireless ) will make it a wonderful phone.

The Nokia Lumia 920 doesn't support external storage, however the phone itself comes with 32 GB of inbuilt service and a 7GB of online storage ( Sky-Drive ), that means the phone has enough internal storage so we don't really need any external storage. However if you explicitly need a phone with external storage ( Micro SD) support then you've an option of Nokia Lumia 820 which has external storage support up to 64GB using Micro SD, but Lumia 820 has only 8GB of internal storage.
There are few other disadvantages that you can not use regular sim card as Lumia 920 supports only micro SIM format, It doesn't have FM radio support, No inbuilt file manager, though you can download the third-party application to browse files, Non user-replaceable battery.
