A lot of people have been talking about iPhone 5...I have to admit...I'm pretty excited about it as well...but when I saw the Nokia Lumia 920, which runs Windows Phone 8, somehow, I think Microsoft is moving at the right direction.
And I dare say if there is one phone I would want to own...this is it: Nokia Lumia 920.
The Nokia Lumia 920 has a 4.5-inch curved glass display with 1280-pixel-by-768-pixel resolution, a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The specification is really not a big thing...what really makes the Nokia Lumia 920 stands out is the features, design, and technology that goes beyond raw performance.
This Windows Phone 8 handset has a PureView camera which means the sensor in the Lumia 920 is a more typical 8.7 megapixels. Nokia claims that the 920's camera captures five-to-ten times more light than other phone cameras. This is an important feature as I'm pretty pissed off with the low quality photos taken in low light condition with my iPhone 4. The Lumia 920's camera also has so-called “floating-lens” technology for image stabilization, which means you can still take amazing snapshots even when there is shaking. (another thumbs up!!)
The Lumia 920 has a “Pure Motion HD+” display. Nokia says the screen offers blur-free scrolling and enhancements to sunlight readability, so the phone can react to minimize sunlight glare. The screen also works through gloved fingers, so there's no need to buy special smartphone gloves.
And guess what, Nokia Lumia 920 supports built-in wireless charging and near-field communications. The image above is the Fatboy wireless charging pillow.
The design of the Lumia 920 is similar to that of Nokia's previous high-end Windows Phones, with a scratch-resistant polycarbonate shell around the curved display. Nokia is expanding the available color schemes on the casing to include yellow, red, and gray, in addition to the existing cyan, white, black. and pink found in Nokia's Lumia 900 line.
(not a fan of yellow stuff but definitely am interested to see the new addition in colors.)
Well, Windows Phone 8 is amazing but Nokia needs to be better than the competitors such as Samsung and HTC as well as other big names.
How NOKIA LUMIA 920 stands out from other Windows Phone 8?
Nokia Maps will be integratedon this phone, as it will be on all Windows Phone 8 devices, but the Lumia 920's Maps app will also included an augmented reality feature called City Lens. Similar to Yelp's AR mode, CityLens lets users hold up the phone's camera to their surroundings and see information on nearby businesses. And on the Lumia 920, Nokia's Drive app will provide turn-by-turn directions with fully-offline maps.
Smart shoot and CinemaGraph are definitely helping one to create much better photos....I am really looking forward into this.
|Smart Shoot...before and after...the magic of app?|
Smart Shoot scans for unwanted people passing through photos, and can remove them from the image. Cinemagraph can add a touch of motion to parts of an image, such as a flag waving in the background.
Pricing for the product has yet to be announced...but if you want something different and better than iPhone, forget about Android or Samsung...here is the new beast in town....Nokia Lumia 920!!
