Nokia Lumia 920 climbs atop a London crane for another low-light bonanza
Nokia UK made another one of its famous publicity stunts, this time giving a Lumia 920 to the London crane operator Eugene Benjamin, who took it atop his tower cabin to shoot pictures and video of the foggy London scenery below.

The handset fared very well in the cloudy circumstances, and a side-by-side comparison with a pro Canon C300 cam at one point shows that you can easily leave at least your point-and-shoot at home with the 920 in your pocket.

Nokia City Lens also made a cameo, augmenting reality to show the crane operator info about the nearest food places below, and last but not least, the guy was operating the touchscreen most of the time with his gloves on, which demos how useful the supersensitive display actually is in real-life scenarios.

Yes, and you and the others with Android and iOS (don't hate Android but i'm surprised with the irony of how you compare a manufacturer with the OS') will be 100% happy drooling over what the exclusive crane operators are holding on to..

When someone with Android phone is atop the crane platform, he has to rip a finger hole in his glove just to use the crappy phone. Now crane operators and others in cold countries are happy using their Nokia 920,

Or, in fairness, use the gloves with the capacitive finger pads (or sew metal thread into the fingertips of the existing gloves). I'd rather have the Nokia though

It maybe true using a capacitive glove capable of sensing electricy, but what if your swiping your android or ios device and you accidentaly hold a live wire while trying to call your wife. Definitely, you'll be electricuted. While in Nokia 920, you can hold a live wire using working glove and play fruit ninja at the same time.

The Lumia 920 is virtually sold out across the entire United States, so I'd say there are more than a few people buying them.

mate your always trolling, you admitted it before

besides your just saying use the 920 as a backup for the sake of it.....why would he buy a new phone as a backup. logic is that would become his primary phone especially as its ahead of his gs2 and refreshing. people enjoying new

bingheads ouch my feelings....but seriously that all you can come up with. troll go back under your bridge

I've trolled before, but I'd rather him have a good ecosystem on his primary phone than just a meh one

yeah sure mate, because what you class as ''meh'' is what everyone does right...please everyone prefers different os's phones etc. not all are like you ...luckily

so stop the crap, your hating for the sake of it. his original comment was

''I really want to switch to lumia 920 but i still love my GS2...''

and i said give it ago, keep you old phone as a backup.. you then had to be troll and turn a reasonable comment into hate. cheers for been unnecessary again

Give it a try. I switched from Android and haven't looked back. There's a few little things missing from Android but they're not deal breakers

If ever I was to leave android and switch to Windows Phone, then Lumia 920 is to be blamed....!!

Wish this piece of hardware came with Android :(

What a marvellous piece of technology...
