Nokia Lumia 920: how the new flagship compares with the competition

With Windows Phone 8, Nokia finally has had its hands untied when it comes to pushing out modern specs on its hardware. The result is the Nokia Lumia 920, with a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 32GB of device storage, and a 4.5-inch display. The Lumia 920 also includes wireless charging and "PureView" technology on its 8-megapixel camera. Add in some bright color options and you're looking at the main differentiators on the hardware side.

How does that stack up? The Galaxy S III, HTC One X each have options with LTE and the Qualcomm S4 Snapdragon dual-core processor, though they feature larger screens. They also come in a variety of different spec configurations, including quad-core processor options. Against those Android phones, the Lumia 920 essentially matches the top-tier of what's available on Android in all the important specs, unless you absolutely must have a super-sized screen, although Nokia is boasting that its 1280 x 768 PureMotion HD+ screen offers better quality. It beats them on battery life, thanks to both the 2,000mAh battery and the ability to quickly top off with wireless charging. Nokia is also claiming the image stabilization and other "PureView" improvements on the camera add up to a big differentiator.

If you absolutely must have a larger screen, Samsung's Ativ S might be more to your liking, but obviously you'll be waiting for either of two-announced flagship Windows Phone 8 devices to ship, so there's no need to make a hasty decision. Of course, compared to the iPhone 4S, the Lumia 920 wins from a pure-spec perspective, on screen-size and LTE speeds especially. That advantage will likely be very short-lived, however, as we're expecting the iPhone 5 to be announced on the 12th, just one short week away.

What do you guys think? Opinions on the Lumia 920? On Windows Phone 8 itself?

Will you be waiting for the iPhone 5? More interested in the Samsung Galaxy S3? HTC One-X?

I'm really excited about this device, and as a current WP7 user, I'm stoked for WP8.

That phone is beautiful. I personally prefer the non-glossy finish on the Lumia 900/800, but the specs/OS on the 920 are so much better.

Also, where did the cyan go?

BTW, I don't own any of those, I just think they look awesome.

Blackberry for me too. I dislike the way other OSs have things organized and I still cannot type on a touchscreen if my life depended on it.

My contract on a first gen galaxy S is up soon and if I was upgrading now itd be a S III all the way as I have been a big Android fan but adding a actually competitive windows phone choice is a good thing for everybody. It and the i5 will have started shipping by the time I need to make a choice. Itll be fun.

I'm a huge Android fanboy (currently using galaxy nexus) and have been using the Nexus line since the original HTC phone, but the 920 and WP8 story is the first to pull me away from Android. With good specs and the whole phone -> xbox deal they have, it's going to be solid.

Yeah, I find that most people haven't given Windows Phone a try, and don't really know how fast it is.

A lot of people don't like the coloured tiles, but they've grown on me. I like the simplicity, and the quick transitions and more intuitive hubs, as opposed to having pages of app icons.

Also, the integration of WP8 and Windows 8, and Windows 8 on the new surface tablets, means apps for Windows will be across all platforms.

Wireless charging? Nice.
Those look pretty awesome. I didn't vote in the poll because I can't exactly make an informed vote in the last one...my iPhone 4 is the only smartphone I've ever had...so...

I find it pretty interesting that phones seem to be getting bigger and bigger now, seemed like everyone was predicting the trend of smaller phones to continue not too long ago.

Yeah, that will be a very nice little feature.

To be honest, I'm most excited about the Lumia's camera, and WP8.


Phones have gotten bigger because they are no longer just phones. For many people they're pretty much a pocket computer, which they use to organize their lives. We do so much on our phones it only makes sense the screens would be big.

You'd think with such a massive expansion of screen size and graphics power there'd be likewise a massive expansion of battery power.

Well, no. I mean, advancements in battery technology and screen technology are two separate things, haha.

Understandably with the bigger screens and power requirements, I suppose you could say the improvements on batteries have lagged behind.

i like it.

have the lumia 900, will try to upgrade if there's a way. nokia hardware are built well.

the OS is easy to use. I prefer my lumia 900 over iphone 4s (which I use when I'm in Canada).

4G LTE is superfast, download speeds over 20 mbps. I stream Nux games on it from a slingbox located in Vancouver.

Well no? You just reiterated exactly what I posted.. :lol:

"You'd think with such a massive expansion of screen size and graphics power there'd be likewise a massive expansion of battery power." = if they're going to advance graphics on these phones and tablets and phablets they should wait for an advancement of batteries. My Samsung Note is an awsum phone/tablet but it's a first that I have to charge my device every single day, sometimes twice a day.
