Here’s TheNextWeb with a very nice review of the Nokia Lumia 920. This is more like the reaction we were expecting. On the overall experience of using the Nokia Lumia 920, not dragging on the whole thing because of one caveat that seemed to be ignored in another similarly sized/weighted device with much less innovation.
On the all important weight:
Nokia doesn’t expressly state why the device is heavier, but with a larger battery than most smartphones and the inclusion of a floating lens in its PureView camera setup, it doesn’t really need to make excuses.
If you like a lighter device, the Lumia 920 may disappoint, but after a couple of days of use, you do become used to it.
I’m not sure why the company needed to resort to using DSLR cameras (in the ‘fake’ advert), because the optical image stabilisation features are seriously good.
Nokia still needs to add that ‘vibrancy’ apparently.Whilst colours may be in a more accurate colour, they appear ‘cold’ – though pictures are said to be sharp/little noise.
In my tests, I was able to squeeze two full days out of the Lumia 920 on more than one occasion. This was with minimal calls and texts and an emphasis on app and web use. However, you’re easily going to get a full day’s intensive use out of this device with sustained use.
TheNextWeb says the Nokia Lumia edges out it’s Lumiawannabe counterpart 8x on imaging, ecosystem and overall design
Cheers Kan for the tip!
