The Nokia Lumia 920 PureMotion HD+ screen explained: is this the best phone for Snooki?

0. phoneArena posted on 06 Sep 2012, 08:44

With the Lumia 920's large 4.5" high-res screen, Nokia tried to address at once several issues that plague smartphone displays - poor sunlight visibility, motion blur, and the inability to operate them with anything but bare skin...

I just see a bunch of people jealous because their phones don't have this technology.

Nokia is doing what everyone does. Pushing attention on it's screen and neglecting everything else. A nice screen alone IS NOT enough!

What about?
- full multitasking
- local PC syncing
--> otherwise I want someone to explain me wtf the Sync Center option in Windows Mobility Center in Windows 8 is used for!
- full bluetooth transfer
- full 2-way call recording
- loud loudspeaker (so we FINALLY it when someone calls us)
- good camera (the camera in the Lumia 800 is even worse than the EDoF-model from the 701)

I also have a lot of question on the following.
- wireless charging is all very well, but not if takes 1 full day like the current Lumia 800

BTW... Nokia, where IS my Lumia 800 that I send to repair 2 months ago, which I declined to repair for the ridiculous sum of 326,66 euro and which was to be returned to me unrepaired???

nokia is one of few company's coming out with new tech, your comment saying about the screen is what there pushing attention on is stupid, you should read up on there 2 devices.

the camera on the 920 is shaping to be one of the best available (second to the nokia 808) bluetooth transfer should be include and hope they have but nowadays bluetooth isnt used as much

syncing etc, well if you dont know how to sync your phone maybe you shouldnt be using that phone

i understand your entire comment, moaning about a phone before even giving it a chance

maybe if you stop complaining and do some research on the internet you will find the answer to your question

Yes it is. But it doesn't run Windows Phone.

So keep quiet about it.

I mean, it would be a real embarrassment for Nokia if an old 1,3GHz Symbian phone appears to be better then their brand new all singing and dancing WP8 flagship slap.

Wait till the phone is out and the purple tint keep cropping up! Or when it can't connect to hidden SSID's or when the ringtones are so bloody quiet that you keep missing phonecalls/texts etc...

do you just blindly hate anything nokia do?

least they are bringing new stuff to the phone market. we need more then just android and iOS. with 3 OS's we should see more development

until the phone has been tested and reviewed cant you keep your negative moaning to yourself or even better not read and comment on articles about nokia

"do you just blindly hate anything nokia do?"

No, I LOVE my Nokia 701. It's fast, looks fantastic, has full bluetooth, full multitasking, a real notification light, a charging/charge ready light, a loud loudspeaker and thus great for navigation, full automatic 2 way call recording, great FM transmitter, fantastic reception and call quality. And Symbian looks fantastic with really usefull widgets and tools (e.g. the situations app is truly a masterpiece).

This is the very best all-round smartphone I ever had. IMHO Nokia shouldn't have dropped Symbian because it still is the most featurepacked smartphone OS around.

I also have a Lumia 800 (in repair since end of June), Nokia N8 (a friend uses this now), Nokia X7 (bought for my niece her birthday) Xperia U (gave this to my mom after her phone broke down), Asus Transformer TF101 (sold), Samsung Omnia (WM6.1) (My dad uses this now), played with a ZTE Orange, Galaxy Mini (bought it for my stepmom for her birthday as she wanted a white phone on a restricted budget), Galaxy 2, iPhone 3/4, iPad 1/2, Samsung Wave (One of my friends has this now).

So don't tell me I'm not open minded. I still have 3 Nokia's in my possesion (N8, 701 and Lumia 800). So I DO speak from experience. Before that 701 I had 2x Nokia C7's (I sold one and exchanged the other for the 701). I loved them and I love the 701 even better because it's a lot faster.

I have experience already with Windows 8 RTM (on my Lenovo R61 thinkpad) and also with WP7,5 (Lumia 800). If you can read Dutch you can find my experiences with Nokia Care at:


These are FACTS (including sales ticket, repair forms AND recorded telephone conversations).

So don't tell me to give Nokia a change. I've supported them with my bloody wallet! How about you?

"least they are bringing new stuff to the phone market."

Yes indeed, Nokia brought significant improvements on Symbian but they abandoned it. And Meego Harmatan was also true innovative but they abandoned that too.

WP7/8 is from Microsoft NOT Nokia. Nokia brings nothing significantly new to it (except marketing crap). A good 8MPixel camera is STILL a 8MPixel camera no matter how much you glorify it. And Nokia's outstanding Navigation software is currently better executed on Symbian than on WP with activation straight from the contacts and calender and more settings (like avoiding of tollbooths and ferries for instance).

It's an illusion to think that you'll see MORE development with more "ecosystems". Developers will always choose the most lucrative platform and that currently isn't WP.

Fact is. I've supported Nokia by BUYING 4 successive models for myself (3 Symbian devices with good to very good experiences) and one WP flagship model (the Lumia 800 was the most expensive Lumia until the Lumia 900 came to market) with VERY bad experience.

That's support! That's giving them a change and they blew it with the WP7 model!

yeah you can name devices you mite or mite not have had , ive always gone noka from 3310 to 6230, 6630, n95,n8 and currently i have the 808 pureview. so in short yeah i support nokia with my wallet to.

yeah i agree and have always said they should of continued with symbian it was finally at a point with belle fp1 where symbian worked without problem on a touchscreen phone. symbian anna always felt like it had been rushed and adapted poorly.

as for windows i never went and got a wp7 device becuase it still had too many limitations for my liking but why list potential problems with these new devices , insted why not wait till we see the final product and try it out.

I would. If Nokia didn't hassle me out of 499 euro's+326,66 euro!

As it is I can't afford to spend ANY more money on them. I require the SAME features as Symbian currently has. Windows Phone 7 AND WP8 does NOT come close.

A few examples that I KNOW off.

WP8 will still have the SAME multitasking as WP7. Sure, a few more apps will be granted to run as background tasks but it still not the same as Symbian, Windows Mobile or Andoid for that matter and will still be limited to MSFT only apps (fortunately Skype is now from them too so THAT will run with multitasking)

In fact Microsoft has introduced similar "task switching" to Windows 8 (desktop OS). Which is just one trick to make it "appear" faster. It´ll run this way strictly under Metro UI (or whatever its called) and use normal multitasking on the "classic" desktop.

Bluetooth will STILL be limited. You STILL need that Live account to do anything.

The thing is client confidentiallity dissallows me from using the cloud to store Client telnos. and addresses. These are now transfered from Outlook via USB/bluetooth through Nokia Suite on my phone.

Because I drive a lot I require full call recording to collect callers name and address for client-emergencies. Sure I can let them call me back or call them back myself but that increases costs (both for me and my clients) and decreases efficiency.

Just these 2 things alone detain me on Symbian. I just have no choice. I do know that through aditional software I can locally sync contacts and calendars on Android devices but the call recording thing is a hit and miss gamble which I'm not willing to bet on. So I keep informing myself. Currently ZTE models and some LG models are able to record calls (e.g. 4XHD) without hacking/rooting/whatever.

Windows Phone 8 does neither! The iPhone does sync outlook data through iTunes but unfortunately doesn't record calls. The same with Bada (Samsung Wave).

But hey, Sure I'll wait and see. Just watch my words. Crippled BT, crippled multitasking, no call recording, no local syncing (although syncing tools are included in Windows 8). But I'm convinced that Navigation will improve upto Symbian level indeed. The camera will be good. And the available colours will add some 'fun' level to it, defintely. It's just not good enough for an independent seflemployed professional.

So overall this is one of the best displays around having an upperhand in almost every category!

Windows Phone has true multi-tasking, but the question is do you want that! If you look at the OneX that has true multi-tasking, that Phone closes the apps if they are not used for some period. You know why? otherwise if would have "drained" your battery. So the way Windows Phone works with multi-tasking, what is called "tomb-stoning" is by design. It takes care of your tasks so your battery lasts longer. Its just a smart feature of the Windows Phone OS.
