Nokia Lumia 920 gets compared vs the Sony Xperia Z (video)

0. phoneArena 30 Jan 2013, 05:56 posted on

The reviewer points out that the Lumia 920 still feels "beefier" than the 5" Xperia Z, which is indeed very thin for a waterproof handset, and points out that both have good things going for them in the camera department - the Z with its HDR video function, and the Lumia 920 with the OIS mechanism inside...

Nokia Lumia 920 in Faster?

Nokia L920 is about as fast as an android phone on the same processor

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m4LFVRYoBYo&feature=youtube_gdata_player

Considering snap dragon quad, the Z will launch apps much faster, play fhd videos smoother, and have a superior browsing and gaming capabilities.

IE 10 on WP8 is actually much slower than fastest Android browsers.
HTML 5 test scores are 320 for IE, and 490 for dolphin browser with Jetpack engine.

As for your other notions, ill just say, they're beyond retarded.
You're an embarrassment

I don't know dude. I have the quad core SGS3 and it works fine directly from boot up, but it doesn't take long for it to start lagging, and I am using the standard set up here, so no skins or resource heavy apps. Three in the UK have the L920 available tomorrow, the new Blackberry Z10 available today / tomorrow and the Z available some time in Feb. I fell in love with the Lumia 920 since the day it ws launched. Nothing turned my head until the Xperia Z came along. It is a beautiful piece of kit with great specs. Trouble is I've extended my contract to a rolling one month contract until the right phone comes along and in all honesty, as lovely as the Z is I'm not prepared to wait another 14+ days, which sort of tells me that there isn't a lot between these phones in real life day to day use terms

If you're going to include a section where the Lumia 920 excells, don't half as$ it. It makes your post worthless and bais.

And finally the design looks much better, SONY should patent this edge2edge design, unlike the ugly iPhone and S3 designs! This looks contemporary.

- 2000 mAh non-removeable battery, 11hrs TT

- Mountable as a Windows PC device, via micro USB

- Bluetooth 4.0

- Strong Polycarbonate outer shell

- Wireless Qi charging mechanism

Sony Xperia Z:

Wtf?
Your point, genius?
Is that supposed to be some kind of a comparison?
What's with the RAM and battery numbers?
Why did you skipped details on Exmor RS with stacked sensor and HDR?
Or a white magic display with four sub pixels?
Or dragon trail fully scratch proof panels on Xperia?
Or the processor?
Or the mobile bravia 2 engine?

L920 mountable as a windows pc device?
Really?
Please elaborate about that brilliant statement!

hey, blockhead
sony uses TFT display. Old tech. It's not even an IPS panel. Not to mention amoled.
1080p on 5 inch? For what? More vivid porn?

Nokia's display crushes sony's on every level, except resolution.

better camera? you must be kiddin g me. Sony has been chasing Nokia's tail since they stopped Cybershot series (but you're too young to remember those times). HDR, Stacked Exmor sensor? So what? How many times has sony promised a groundbraking camera technology? and whatr? And nothing so far. Sony relies heavily on raw cpu or gpu power and software tricks where Nokia uses superior optics and a completely different approach to a photography.

My favourite. GLASS:D
apple did the same and look what they are using now. Aluminium? Am I right?
Dragontrail glass? The same overrated glass as the gorilla. It';s good but it catches sratches anyway.
Dragontrail will be no different. It's just a GLASS. After a week or so your brand new "z" will look like crapp. Making back of glass???? Have you lost it man?? Think it over dude.

2 advantages over 920.
dust and waterproof (to some very limited extent of course). I wonder why Nokia hasn't used their nano water tech proof so far. They showed it many month ago and nothing so far.

Wireless charging
Stronger Build Quality
Better screen + technology
Better low light images
Better image stabilization
Less expensive (w/ more storage)

That is a conservative list of qualities where the Lumia 920 is superior than the Xperia Z

posted on 30 Jan 2013, 12:53

84. darac (Posts: 2156; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)


Okay, I give you that.
Apart from the build quality and the screen.

You don't know how "strong" xperia is.
As for the screen, you only know Nokia has wider viewable angles - for the rest of the readings like contrast, brightness (xperia is using white magic technology i believe), color accuracy etc. ,you just don't know yet

posted on 30 Jan 2013, 13:04

88. darac (Posts: 2156; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)


..Oh and also the camera.
You can't claim the superior low light performance yet.
Sony uses next generation Exmor sensor - stacked RS.
It aims for even better low light sensitivity.
So let's just wait and see when they compare

Where did these Sony fanboys come from? They seriously appeared overnight. Sony announces a handset that has nothing going for it that isn't already on a current handset and they're all suddenly jizzing themselves. I can't wait for the device to launch so they can all shut their stupid faces and move on to the next fotm Android phone.

That's the problem with Americans. They always have the idea that a product must be successful in the US to be successful in the world. Unfortunately, that's not the case. Like it or not, Sony holds the fourth place in smartphone WORLDWIDE, not Nokia. China, is the next big market and they have limited appetite for Apple. Don't talk about Motorola. They are an unknown outside the America. And your question of the sudden outburst of Sony fans. They are always there. That's how Sony got fourth.

No my comment still stands. Even if Sony can manage to be 4th place in the rest of the world their fans were never this vocal on a US based website. Sony handsets were always sub par and still are.

Too bad. The world does not stand with your comments. The last rankings report, Nokia was in the 10th place in the smartphone market. I wonder where are they now. Sony quality is extremely outstanding, using glass instead of the glossy, glorified and cheap "polycarbonate" plastic. And everyone agrees, even your American websites, that Sony is recognised for their outstanding design and build quality.

29. TerryCrowley (Posts: 184; Member since: 31 Jul 2011)


Yeah but the world does. Nokia's position in total number of smartphones shipped worldwide doesn't mean a damn thing to me. Unlike you and everyone else on this website, I'm not a fanboy. I use devices I like. Your fanboyism is showing though if you think glass isn't as "glossy" or "glorified" as poly carbonate. The biggest difference between the two is that one is actually durable while maintaining a premium feel and the other will break after a few drops. Nobody gives Sony recognition because it deserves none. Neither does Huawei or ZTE or other cheap handset making manufactures like Sony.

Anti- Sony more like...

I'm sorry but "Nobody gives Sony recognition because it deserves none. Neither does Huawei or ZTE or other cheap handset making manufactures like Sony." is going too far. I'm fine with you saying you dont like it, but this is so wrong in every level. When most people think Sony, they think premium. Also every phone companies are giving sony it's recognition for it's exmor rs sensor, since most phnes coming out this year contains the Sony sensor

Also Xperia Z is using dragontrail glass, which is stronger than gorilla glass... :S

you gotta be kidding ... Check every Movie that been preduced in America or UK like James Bond,the Avengers,Spider man,Iron man and even in Music production Sony products are used in it either Camera,Speaker,Studio or Tvs.. Sony's name written in every Movie and Music production .. and in case of Mobiles Every tech website admit that Sony make the best in term of design and about Xperia Z it's made of glass (Dragontrail) glass google it and you will see how much effort Sony put on their devices
