Nokia Lumia 920 - Super Smart, Super-Size Handset

The latest version of Windows didn’t just bring a fresh new look for desktop PCs, laptops and tablets; Microsoft also released its new version of Windows Phone, heralding a host of new handsets, the first of which is the stylish Nokia Lumia 920.

The Lumia 920 is the largest smartphone in Nokia’s new range, packing a 4.5-inch super AMOLED display protected by Corning’s famous and virtually indestructible Gorilla Glass. The super-bright display ensures luxurious, deep colours, and the huge screen size makes web browsing and video viewing easy. That 4.5-inch display also makes the Lumia 920 a seriously big handset, which won’t suit everyone’s tastes. The phone is 11mm thick with soft, rounded plastic edges, and weights 186g, which is a substantial bulk compared to some modern smartphones, but no bigger than similarly-sized competitors.

Although this handset is pocket-bustingly big, the upshot is a premium feel and display that match any of its competitors. Style is a big part of the Windows Phone experience, and the Lumia 920 certainly doesn’t disappoint. The new phone comes in a choice of red, yellow, white and black, and accessories such as headphones, wireless charging stations and speakers are available in matching hues. The new mobile operating system is designed to be as stylish as it is slick, and this has spurred on phone manufacturers to craft their Windows handsets in a similar vein.

The Lumia 920 comes with 32GB of storage, which will be plenty for most users, but it can’t be expanded using, microSD, which means you’re stuck with that allocation. However, Microsoft’s cloud storage service SkyDrive gives you can extra 7GB free when you sign up.

Photography is a huge part of the Lumia 920’s design, and it’s equipped with a brilliant 8MP camera aided capably by a Carl Zeiss lens. The result is one of the best photography experiences you’ll get from any smartphone on the market, and genuinely means you don’t need to carry a compact digital camera. The photos from our series of tests were consistently sharp, and the image stabilisation and excellent quality sensor meant that even with an unsteady hand, gloomy scenes were well reproduced without the use of a flash.


Our sample handset came with a wireless charging station, which is an optional accessory, but so good that we implore anyone to try it. Just place the Lumia on top of the oval-shaped plastic device and watch the phone juice up. It’s really convenient, and not having to fiddle about with connectors every time you want to power it up makes a refreshing change.

The Nokia Lumia 920 is a well-built and luxurious handset that’s great to use, and is packed with unique apps and features. For everyday use we still prefer the slightly trimmer build of the slender HTC 8X, its main rival, but in terms of photographic performance and quality of the screen, the Lumia 920 a ideal for anyone looking for a premium quality Windows smartphone.
