The wait for Nokia Lumia 920 is withering away as the month of November draws closer. Tagged as the potential savior ofÂ Nokia, the Nokia Lumia 920 has a lot to prove. Nokia may have been the market leader once but those seem to be the times of antiquity. Losing its way, Nokia seemed to have been stuck in a black hole of mediocrity. However, there could be a savior rising from the ashes in the shape of Nokia Lumia 920. Clearly there are reasons to put faith in it. Let us take you through the five reasons why you should look out for Nokia Lumia 920.
Microsoft Windows 8 For A Refreshing Change
We are not fond of monopolies and oligopolies popping in the mobile industry. Android and iOS seem to have extended a pretty forceful reign over other OSâ€™s but we feel it is about time that a competitor rose from the ranks and offered something new. Nokia Lumia 920 seems to be just the right candidate so letâ€™s dive into the details of how this phone challenges the competition.
As one of the very first smartphones with Microsoft Windows Phone 8 OS, Nokia Lumia 920 is certainly gambling its life on a new OS. This may set a new trend or put you off once and for all.
Luck favors the brave, though. And Nokia Lumia 920 certainly earns credit for its courage and guile. We are huge fans of Live Tiles, so it would be really interesting to see how well the highly customizable W8 proposition pans out on a 4.5-inch LCD screen.
Wireless Charging On A Platter
We recently covered how Nokia refused to be innovative in its methods of operations of late. We alsoÂ wrote how wireless charging was one such amenity that NokiaÂ could have incorporated to stand out among the rest. It seems like Nokia paid heed to what we had to say.
Wireless charging with Nokia Lumia 920 takes an interesting course. This is achieved as you place the phone on a Fatboy Recharge Pillow â€“ a wireless charging plate. This frees you from the hassle of plugging your phone in charger providing you convenience at its very best.
A Display That Locks Horns With iPhone Retina Display
We are almost always on the lookout for iPhone â€˜killersâ€™, are we not? It looks like we have a challenger with real potential to go up against the mighty Retina Display. Android fanboys often try to cook up tales about how SuperAMOLED is better than Retina. However, in actuality, the display features on Nokia Lumia 920 help it qualify as the only real competitor to date.
Firstly, 4.5 inches is a healthy size for a display on Windows 8 phone. You can well imagine how brilliant a view the Live Tiles would be on a spacious screen. We are also pleased by the fact that Nokia has incorporated an IPS LCD that is powered by PureMotion HD+. This particular feature promises to enhance picture clarity and produce crystal clear photos and well-refined videos.
You would be pleasantly surprised to know that the display boasts a pixel density of 323 ppi. This might hurtÂ AppleÂ fanboys a little as they fancy boasting about the generous pixel density on the iPhone. Moreover, features like light sensing technology and polarization filter speak for how brilliantly the phone will manage the viewing angles and sunlight legibility. Did we mention it is super sensitive as well?
An 8.7 Megapixels Snapper That Shines Even In The Dark
The 8.7 Megapixels camera on the Nokia Lumia 920 is a super star, to say the least. We feel that it is a rare commodity on smartphones these days. Sure, it isnâ€™t as scarce as the 41 megapixels giant on Nokia PureView 808 but we do have our reasons for it.
A number of smart features have been incorporated in the camera department. PureView technology along with Floating Lens functionality feature on the Nokia Lumia 920. While the PureView will sharpen the snaps you take, Floating Lens will play the steady cam and offer noise and stutter free results.
Most importantly, we are very pleased with how amazingly well the snapper performs in low lighting. Smartphones usually get away with decent photography in daylight but the real test begins in low lighting. The camera prototype tested by The Verge clearly proved that Nokia Lumia 920 is the best in regards to low light photography due to its Optical Image Stabilization.
Sufficiently Satisfying Performance On Offer
A Dual core Krait processor, clocked at 1.5GHz will keep operations running at a satisfyingly brisk pace. Moreover, the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chipset also promises to maintain the flow of tasks. 1 GB of RAM and sufficient storage in 32 GB will also complement it well.
Interestingly enough, the Snapdragon S4 chipset is said to help with battery efficiency. Nokia Lumia 920 is lucky to have a Dual core processor on board as this feature is absent on the Quad core variants. Besides, we are certain that the phone possess enough power under the hood anyway.
Finally, 2000 mAh battery comes across as the largest on a Nokia smartphone. This goes to show how desperately Nokia is trying to make the Nokia Lumia 920 reap the rewards. With wireless charging as an added advantage, the battery promises to fair well with a bit of assistance from the S4 chipset.
