Nokia Lumia 920 Windows Phone Review

The Nokia Lumia 920


Nokia Lumia 920 front view

Nokia offer the Lumia 920 in a number of colours which are Black, Grey, Yellow, Red and the version we have which is white. The handset measures 130.3x70.8x10.7mm and weighs 185g. Corning Gorilla Glass 2 is used for the screen, a 4.5" capacitive model which has a resolution of 768x1280 pixels with a 332ppi density and Nokia ClearBlack technology with PureMotion HD+ for maximum quality. Also shown are the three touch sensitive buttons at the base of the screen which are back, Windows/Home and Search.

Down the right edge of the handset we find the traditional style buttons for volume up/down, screen lock/power and camera, the same layout as the original Lumia. There are no buttons or features on the left side of the handset.

At the base of the handset we can see a grill which covers the microphone (active noise cancellation) and loudspeaker. At the top of the handset we have our 3.5mm headset connector and a removable panel which covers the micro-sim slot.

Over on the back of the handset the original Lumia design concept shines through and while the material has changed to a high shine finish in the centre we still find our camera with LED flash. This is an 8.7megapixel model with Carl Zeiss optics and auto-focus is supported as is geo-tagging and 1080p video with stabilization. On the front we also find a camera, this time a 1.3MP/720p part.

Inside the handset Nokia have opted for a Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon processor (1.5GHz Krait) with Adreno 225GPU. The OS is provided with 1GB of RAM and storage on the Lumia 920 is 32GB, not expandable. The handset supports HSDPA 42.2, HSUPA 5.76MBPS, Wi-Fi-n (dual band), Bluetooth 3.1 with A2DP/EDR and A-GPS. Accelerometer, gyro, compass and proximity sensor are also present.
