Nokia Lumia 920 Review
Far from perfect, there are a few nagging issues with call quality on the Lumia 920, but still, we’re able to carry out conversations. Specifically, these include the hint of muteness attached to voices through the speaker, muffled tones using the speakerphone, and that it doesn’t offer wind noise reduction.

Using the Nokia Lumia 920 in high coverage areas, we didn’t come across any instance of its signal strength fluctuating dramatically, nor did we have any dropped calls during our testing.


Stuffing a 2,000 mAh battery in its closed body, the Lumia 920’s battery life is nothing more than average – delivering at least a day of normal usage on a full charge strictly with HSPA+ connectivity. Naturally, using it with 4G LTE connectivity will drastically lessen the tally. Rare to find even now, the Lumia 920 is unique in the fact that it offers wireless charging – employing the Qi standard we’re familiar with.


Frankly people, this isn’t the most cutting-edge or compelling device in recent memory, as we can name quite a few notable ones that are superbly premium in all categories. Regardless of that, the Nokia Lumia 920 simply has the luxury of being attached with the notion of having a whole lot of value for the buck. Naturally, we can overlook the fact that it’s rather hefty looking in size – mainly due to it sporting one solid build quality combined with its stylish color availability. Those elements alone help to splash a dose of youth and vigor to make people take notice of it from afar.

At $99.99 with a 2-year contract, there’s no denying that you’re getting something feature filled from head-to-toe, and as well as inside-out. Of course, the Nokia Lumia 920 stands apart from its other Windows Phone 8 colleagues thanks primarily to two specific items – its PureView camera and Nokia branded apps. With the former, its low lighting performance is something to behold, since it currently seems unmatched. On top of that, you gain a very useful image stabilization feature with video recording. And lastly, Nokia’s set of apps help to strengthen its worth over the offerings we’ve seen already with the competition from HTC and Samsung.

It’s still cloudy to affirm whether the Lumia 920 is indeed the flagship handset for Windows Phone 8, but regardless, it’s definitely taking the crown for the moment. Ultimately, when you factor in all the lovely things about the handset combined with some other surprising ones, like wireless charging, the $100 pricing attached to it surely amounts to something both tangibly complete and valuable. Just like those tasty Skittles candy, you can really taste the rainbow in Nokia’s offering.
