Michael from Pocketnow takes a look at the Nokia Lumia 920 and puts it against the newly available Samsung ATIV S. Whilst it was the first WP8 phone announced, it is only beginning to trickle in to some networks.
- Lumia – better camera, better design (more high end in appearance- it’s a more aspirational design and apparently makes the ATIV look dull and less impressive), more natural screen colours, polarised for better outdoor viewing, more fluid display (don’t forget super sensitive) higher pixel density. Has wireless charging. Lumia’s low light photos CAN’T be beaten. Software differences – Samsung’s apps does not hold a candle to the Nokia apps on the Lumia 920. Windows Phone runs consistently well on both devices.
- ATIV – larger screen, removable battery, additional microSD, nice screen with wide viewing angles, good camera (just not as good as Lumia, but produces sharper pics in ample lighting – Lumia is waiting for update to fix this). Some good basic specialised apps. Windows Phone runs consistently well on both devices. ATIV does have a later build of the software which allows constant WiFi on. Brings a 2011 sensibility to a 2012 WP line up.
As other reviewers go, the consensus is that the Nokia Lumia 920 is the BEST Windows Phone to go for.
