The Lumia 920, Nokia unveiled back in September, is the company's current high-end Windows Phone 8. Powered by a Snapdragon S4 dual-core CPU at 1.5 GHz, the Lumia 920 supports a wide range of wireless technologies and frequencies which include quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE, qudband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA at 850, 900, 1900 and 2100 MHz as well as pentaband LTE at 800, 900, 1800, 2100 and 2600 MHz. This makes the Lumia 920 virtually a world traveler and world phone. Other than that, it also supports Bluetooth 3.0, WiFi a/b/g/n, NFC, Qi Wireless charging, a magnetometer, aGPS, WLAN Network Positioning and Glonass. The PureMotion HD+ capacitive multipoint-touchscreen measures 4.5" and supports a screen resolution of 1280 x 768 pixels.

The screen features a polarization filter, light time-out, ambient light detector, brightness control and is protected by Corning's Gorilla Glass. Bellow the screen and on the side, the 920 features the Windows Phone typical hardware keys for camera, power, volume, search, back and for sure the redesigned Windows 8 Start key center button. The last three keys are backlight illuminated and touch resistive.

The primary autofocus BSI camera has 8.7 megapixel and also allows to record 1080p full HD videos up to 30 fps. It comes with a short pulse high power dual LED and for sure it's Nokia's typical Carl Zeiss high-end Tessar lens. The so called Nokia PureView camera comes with a couple of extra features, including touch to focus and capture in a single tap, landscape orientation, geo-tagging, auto and manual white balance settings, still image Editor and an optical image stabilization. The front-facing secondary camera resolution features a resolution of up  1280 x 960 pixels.

At a massive size of 130.3 x 70.8 x 10.7 mm, the unibody device weights heavy 185 g, including the extra strong 2000 mAh Li-ion battery which isn't removable at all. However, the battery is said to give the device a maximum 2G talk time of 18.6 h, maximum 3G standby time of 460 h, maximum 3G talk time of 10.8 h and music playback time of 74 h. The Lumia 920 comes with 1 GB of RAM and 32 GB of flash memory, which can be expanded through Microsoft's SkyDrive cloud service. Not supported is the expansion with microSD memory cards.










The Nokia Lumia 920 is now available across the world in different colors which include yellow, red, white, grey and black.

Hey Arne, great photos, as always. But tell me, does it really feels as heavy and bulky as the figures say? I mean, if I compare it to your 8X photos, it really seems to be more bulky.

Also if I compare just the specs. Lumia 920: 130.3 x 70.8 x 10.7 mm and 185 g; 8X: 132.35 x 66.2 x 10.12 mm and 130 g. I'm especially concerned about the extra 50 g which is a lot for a smartphone!

Hi Francis2, thanks for asking. Well, as you have already seen on the photos you've compared, there's no real difference in the height but there's one in the width. Overall it's not to bad at all but indeed, it makes the Lumia 920 a little bulkier than the HTC 8X. The real drawback for me is the weight! 185 g is a lot and indeed it's a little bit to much to carry the 920 in my suit pants or office jacket. If you carry it in your leisure Jeans, it's fine but for an office dress it's quite heavy.

Nevertheless, I have to admit that I really like the 920, thanks to all the Nokia software and app enhancements.
