Will the Nokia Lumia 920 have an impact on the smart phone market?

Released earlier this November, the Nokia Lumia 920 was much anticipated and caused a lot of talk in the world of technology ever since it was in the project stage. It’s no wonder this happened, because the Apple vs. Android war left many people wondering what new features Nokia could come up with. And in fact the Finnish company did a lot of efforts to truly innovate and look at their new smart phone from a different perspective. In the past year no one can deny that Nokia lost many customers who went for more competitive devices instead, but now the company is really beginning to threaten its rivals. The Nokia Lumia 920 is now the company’s flagship and perhaps the most feature-filled device released lately. The smart phone is different from what iPhone and Android accustomed customers with, not only in terms of design, but also functioning.

 

The Nokia Lumia 920 is quite impressive in terms of measurements: 130.3 x 70.8 x 10.7 mm and 185 g. Some said that the weight is a bit uncomfortable and although it’s true that this phone is heavier than its competitors, 185 g is not exactly a burden, especially after you use the device for a few days. The screen, whose size doesn’t compare to the Samsung Galaxy SIII, is still the biggest from all Nokia phones available so far and has a 1280 x 768 resolution.

The OS, Windows Phone 8, brings very interesting changes, some of which being the colourful tiles that come as an alternative to rows of icons, Kid’s Corner, a feature coming to the aid of parents who want to control the content children can access on their phone, Nokia Music and Nokia Drive. This last feature is particularly interesting, providing turn-by-turn voice navigation.

 

Nokia Lumia 920 also brought some unique things on the smart phone market, including special gloves which allow you to use the touch screen in colder days and wireless charging. The latter caused a lot of stir among specialists and the technology is really impressive: instead of plugging in a wire, you just have to position the phone on a mouse-sized pad. It sounds very useful, but the small dilemma users have now is how to use the phone while it is charging.

The 8.7 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens is also feature-packed and not only does it take crisp, quality pictures, but it also brings interesting additions like Cinemagraph and SmartShoot. Unlike the majority of phone cameras, which give decent photos in perfect light but fail at dusk or night, the Nokia Lumia 920 camera does a very good job in low lighting, due to its PureView floating lens.

 

There is, however, one aspect that could do with some improvements: battery life. Nokia Lumia 920 may even require charging twice a day if you use Internet, the music player and games very often. Leaving aside this issue and the discussible matter of weight, Nokia Lumia 920 deserves the positive reviews it received, since its creators focuses on bringing new features rather than reinventing the old ones.
