Nokia Introduces Their First Windows 8 Phones: Lumia 920 and Lumia 820

The Nokia Lumia 920 is a great successor to the 900. The 920 follows the Lumia look with the sharp corners. There’s no mistaking this phone for something else. Nokia kept the colors bold with a bright yellow; but there are other options as well. You can get it in white, black, and red as well.

Design and Hardware

The phone has a stunning curved Gorilla Glass 4.5” WXGA display that uses Nokia’s PureMotion HD+ screen technology. The screen size might make the phone feel a bit large. I’m used to it though. As you know; it’s a plus for me. It has a dual-core Snapdragon processor and 1 GB of RAM. For storage you have 32 GB.

Nokia focused a lot on the camera. I think they’ve realized that people rely heavily on their smartphone for pictures of all types of events. The 920 has an 8 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens. They claim it works well in low light; you can get clear pictures without a flash even in near darkness. The camera’s optical image stabilization (OIS) eliminates vibration; meaning you can take a clear, clean picture while in motion. There’s a suite of add-ons to enhance pictures.

A key feature that Nokia and Microsoft are focusing on is the wireless charging. So far the accessories introduced have been from JBL and Fatboy. Pillows, soap-bar docks, wireless speakers and headphones; come in a variety of colors. You will soon be able to charge you phone in Virgin Atlantic lounges, and The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf locations.

Differences

If you’re asking “what’s the difference between the Lumia 900 and the Lumia 920?” here are few. The Lumia 920 has a bigger screen size and it’s PureMotion HD+ IPS LCD. You can add more live tiles and resize them to fit nicely. It also has more storage and more RAM. For connectivity it has Bluetooth 3.1, NFC capabilities, and wireless charging. Something I really liked is that you can use it with gloves on and it’s sensitive to fingernails as well.

And of course the differences between the Lumia 800 and the Lumia 820 are along the same lines of the Lumia 920 upgrades. It has a dual core 1.5 Snapdragon processor and 1 GB of RAM. It added a front-facing camera (VGA). It also boasts a bigger battery and you can also charge it wirelessly. While it has only 8 GB of storage you can add microSD.

There are many apps designed to work hand in hand with the Nokia handset. Nokia Maps, Nokia Transport and Nokia City Lens, they will even work offline. I’m sure more features will be announced and tweaked as the release of Windows 8 nears.

Wrap Up

So far the Nokia Lumia 920 has all the signs of a great flagship phone. With Windows 8 coming soon; it might be easier for people to transition to Windows 8 phone. We’re still waiting for an official release date and pricing. From the launch event it seems to be responsive and flowing nicely. Those looking for something innovative and bold; this is the phone for you.
