Nokia Lumia 920 Review

Well people, Nokia have listened intently to all the concerns and followed through appeasing the masses by incorporating a PureView camera into a Windows Phone. Culminating all into the Nokia Lumia 920, the successor to the Lumia 900 from earlier in the year, there’s a lot of excitement regarding this flagship device – but most importantly, will it actually stir enough noise to entice consumers to take grasp of it?...

And it would be even more non-biased if the score was 10, right? :))

There is no such thing as a non-biased review, b-c the reviewer say what HE thinks, and every1 has his/her own opinion. maybe in this case you and the reviewer have same opinion. But most people want lighter phones than 180gr given the screen size is only 4.5".

you cant help but find negatives with anything other the android can you. and you cant say most people want a lighter phone, as if the weight of the 920 is a problem for you to pick up you really need help. plus people manage with the size and weight of the note 2 why is it different when it comes to the 920.

I found the Lumia 920 weight to be perfect. It actually feels like a solid phone, not some toy that falls apart after six months of use. Aside from that it felt really well in my hand, didn't slide or feel out of balance. Now that's my point of view of the weight... ITS AN OPINION. Kids gotta quit assuming that everyone prefers a lighter phone.

Just like how the OG Palm Pre was the most un-biased at all for getting a 9.9!

I read from Ativ S review user comments, that Lumia 920 would get a score of 9, as phonearena has become predictable and how the true score is.. (second comment in Ativ S review)

I'm also a little bit dissapointed with PA. Lumia 920 has problems with call quality. Its camera is exceptional only in the field of low-light photos. In other areas even not so great HTC 8X is often better (yet Nokia still weights 185g mostly because of the camera). Moreover while it is relatively a cheap phone in U.S., it is incredibly expensive in other countries. Perhaps Nokia is still in our hearts. But that still makes this score (9/10) unjustified.

I thought it will be overpriced. But credit where it's due, this a great package for the money

I've seen this display IRL. Doesn't pop as much as the display on the 900, but it's pretty good. And the resolution more than makes up for it. BTW, who actually looks at their phone from that angle anyways.

...how is it confusing? There are user guides and tutorials not only on the phone, but online as well. You can also call Nokia and they offer FREE human assistance for setting it up!

Also in-store. Since AT&T was requiring a lot of its "frontline" reps to use the Lumia 900, most of the tenured store reps have decent familiarity with Windows Phone.

no you not understanding, android will confuse more then wp8 as like all you android users go on and on about the amount of setting and customisation will be confusing. also they say how wp8 is so simple, so you cant at one time say its simple then say its confusing when it suits.

You are telling about early years of android....just go and have experience with jelly bean....nothing confusing......every thing is on the go.....am using android from 2.2...at that time it was little complex....but now its very fast, easy to use...
