The Nokia Lumia 920 is kind of the flagship handset in the Nokia Lumia Mid Range device list. It stands out from the rest in terms of Superior Tech Specs and an amazing design concept.
The Nokia Lumia Range is a massive success and has sold over 8.2 million units in the last quarter of 2013. This drills down to the fact that the Nokia Lumia range appeals to a very wide section of Smartphone users. We are talking from the low cost Nokia Lumia 520, the trendy Nokia Lumia 820 and to the high end Nokia Lumia 1320.
Here is a quick review of the Nokia Lumia 920 and pricing in Kenya.
Body & Design
Frame Size: 130.3 x 70.8 x 10.7 mm
Weight: 185 g
The Nokia Lumia 920 has a compact polycarbonate construction. There is a notable absence of creaking parts on the Nokia Lumia 920.
The Lumia 920 features a smoothly curved backside that makes it slide perfectly into your palms. The design concept is intuitive as it makes one-handed operations a cinch despite the Nokia 920 having one of the largest displays in Windows 8 OS devices.
Screen Size: 4.3 Inches
Screen Resolution: 768 x 1280 pixels
Screen Resolution Density: 332 ppi
Screen Protection: Corning Gorilla Glass 2
It is kinda interesting that Nokia chose an IPS display over an Amoled screen. Amoled screens have a unique color vibrancy that is often lacking on IPS displays. Nevertheless, the screen visibility is okay, and you will love the screen sensitivity of the Nokia Lumia 920.
CPU: Dual-core 1.5 GHz Krait
RAM: 1 GB RAM
GPU: Adreno 225
The Nokia Lumia tech specifications closely mirror those of the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini.
Bonus: You will love the wireless charging feature (see the video below).
Internal Memory: 32 GB
Card Slot: No
Unlike the other Lumia Devices, the Lumia 920 is only available in a 32GB version and lacks a micro SD slot. Approximately 27 GB is available to the user. This is more than enough for your Apps, Tunes and Cat Videos.
Operating System: Microsoft Windows Phone 8
The Windows Phone 8 is, however, upgradable to Lumia Black.
Rear Camera: 8.7 MP
Front Facing Camera: 1.3 MP
LED: Dual LED Flash
The 8.7 MP pure view rear camera on the Nokia Lumia is amazing. The Camera is optimized for low light shooting and, therefore, perfect for that crazy night out with friends. The 1.3 MP front facing camera also gives an amazing self-shots experience.
Battery Capacity: Non-removable Li-Ion 2000 mAh battery
The 2000 mAh battery is exactly similar to the one found on the Nokia Lumia 720. However, the awesome bit with the Nokia 920 is that it features wireless charging. There is therefore no hustle of untangling your charger every time your handsets pins for a charger.
All you have to do is place the Lumia 920 on its wireless charging pad and watch as the power mat replenishes the battery juice.
