Giant Lumia 920 is an epic Minecraft project that took 14 days to complete
We were sitting yesterday with our grandma, and she seemed very thoughtful (more than usual). When we asked her what's the matter, we were almost shocked to hear the question she shot at us. Her exact words: "I've been thinking lately... is there a common thing between cell phones and Minecraft..." We were just about to reply with "Since when did you start caring about cell phones?" when the unsound thought that she might actually know what Minecraft is hit us like a cart pulled by at least a couple of donkeys.

Oh, Minecraft! You, blocky game that can unleash the creativity in every one, even in that moron from the block that uses his toothbrush to polish his shoes... We admit it, we actually didn't know that Minecraft is so popular that Nokia would like to use it to promote its latest and greatest product - the Nokia Lumia 920. Apparently, Nokia has partnered with this Minecraft master, Gokuroyu (or Darek), who has spent 14 sweet days designing the Lumia 920 from his dreams. And make no mistake - this is not just a a giant recreation of the Lumia 920. It is inside where all the magic happens, as Gokuroyu (we enjoy typing that name) has used crazy doses of imagination to design various innards like the internal memory, CPU, the Nokia Music feature, camera and so on. For example, the internal memory is represented by a large library, while a night club plays the role of Nokia Music. Great stuff, we tell you!

There's even a short interview with the guy over at Nokia Conversations, where he claims that his first phone was the Nokia 3210, his current one is the Nokia 5800 XPM, and that he's desperately saving money for a Lumia 920. The kind of stuff he's supposed to say, we guess. Anyways, hop through the source link if you'd like to read it!

That's pretty cool, although it would be cooler if the screen could glow.

With this sort of effort and creation, I think Nokia could give him a 920, or at least a hefty discount off one!

Windows or Symbian? I'm still debating, which mobile would be better? The lumia 920 or the original 808 pureview? Suggestions? And yes my main thing is the camera, but I'm not sure which mobile would suit me the best, I come from Android background and I hate all the spyware and malware Android gets within weeks of use

i'm not gonna make it simple all i'm gonna say nokia 808 purview excels far beyond nokia lumia 920 while
if you wanna smooth and simple get a lumia920

if you wanna something that a a similar system to android with widgets and stuff like that symbian is for you also it's doesn't have a very pleasant web page experience

it's your choice

Now one last thing, does nokia city lens work properly on the 808 pureview? That's also ground breaking for me, since when I travel I like to get lost lol :)

pretty much right

just keep in mind the 808 doesnt have the amount of apps that android has and your probably used too, plus with no future support in the future (how it looks) dont expect much change you major updates. that said the 808 is a great phone with a camera thats nearly unbelievable for a phone.

but if you need a ecosystem and apps, the lumia 920 might be a better choice, its camera wont blow you away like the 808 but its ahead of other flagships. plus with windows growing you can expect updates and more apps becoming available

i have the 808 as the best camera was a big plus for me, im used to symbian and once you do the simple hack, you can customize your phone to almost android level (themes, wallpapers,widgets, menu layouts). the web browser is pretty bad when not using wifi, but opera and there are a couple other alternatives.

ive ranted on but sum up if apps aint a big importance and you want the best camera and mature os the 808 is the perfect choice. if you need a ecosystem and apps the 920 would be a better choice

I'm not that much about applications but I do want a phone that will have a good gps; mainly aiming at nokia city lens, do you know if there are issues on the 808 pureview when you use city lens?

ive only used it a few times so i dont have extensive knowledge on how good, but the first time i used it it took awhile to load. but after that first use it became more fluid. and when i did use it i found no problems was accurate and simple to use.

just the first time you use it you may find it to load slow thats all ive experienced. i stick to maps mainly myself

hmm I wonder if Nokia made an 809 windows brand 808 would it sell well to the shutter bug crowd.
