Nokia once the supreme king of phones is now consistently trying to make in roads in to the highly competitive smart market that is being dominated by Android smart phones and the iPhones. The previous attempts since the launch of Windows 7 have failed quiet miserably. Nokia now shows its hardware power with the feature rich Windows Phone 8. In pursuit, it has launched the new Lumia smart phone featuring Windows Phone 8 called Lumia 920. Lets have a look
Size and Dimension:
Not sure If Nokia will be able to sell millions of Lumia 920 but the bold color choices is sure to garner plenty of looks. The bold glossy yellow, red or matt cyan stands out from the crowd but I prefer to the black and the white. The use of polycarbonate plastics make it feel premium as well as stand a longer time to the wear and tear. The phone is quiet hefty weighing 185g but it shouldn’t bother a user much. It’s pretty thick having a breadth of 10.7mm but as far as the current scenario is concerned where the size is dominated by every hardware upgrade, its dismissible to the fact that we made smartphones like the Galaxy Note and Co. a success.
It features a giant 4.5 inch IPS LCD display having a mind blowing resolution of 1280 x 768 pixels and a pixel density of 332 ppi. The sharp colorful display stands out of the world which Nokia calls as PureMotion HD + Clear Black display imparting towards the 60fps transition rate which beefs up the Windows Phone 8 interface. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 2.
It features a PureView 8.7 MP camera which vouches for it being the best camera technology out there in the market. Having a resolution of 3264 x 2448 pixels the camera features Carl Zeiss optics, optical image stabilization, geo-tagging, touch focus and dual-LED flash. It is able to record 1080p video @ 30fps and features Floating lens technology. Additionally it has a 1.3 MP secondary camera.
Processor and OS
The Windows 8 powered Nokia Lumia 920 comes with a 1.5 GHz krait Dual-core processor supported by Adreno 225 GPU and 1 GB RAM. The configuration is at par with the interface of Windows Phone 8 and is blazing fast.
Windows Phone 8, indeed a new beginning but has a lot of loopholes that need to be fixed apart from the many fixes it brings from the predecessors.

Also, the Lumia 920 comes with wireless charging technology based on the induction pad which is given as an accessory.
Nokia Lumia 920 is the best smartphone available in terms of camera but yes, it won’t be able to please the consumers due to the Windows Phone 8 limitations and apps catalogue. But if one is looking for the bestest of the best Windows Phone 8 smartphone, nothing better than the Nokia Lumia 920.
Nokia Lumia 920 is priced at Rs 38,199 .
