Reality

Lumia 920

No real surprise from Nokia in terms of design. Nokia Lumia 920 looks like its predecessor, the Lumia 900. With a bigger screen – 4.5 inches (11.4 cm diagonal) against 4.3 inch (10.9 cm) – it takes at passage 2 mm in width, but slightly finesse wins (10.7 mm against 11.5 mm). Enthusiasts iPhone 5, ultrathin, lightweight and very long, go your way! Accusing a weight of 185 g, the Nokia Lumia 920 offers a neat piece shell with its polycarbonate (plastic with a high impact strength and heat), but does not discreet pocket. It is also difficult to use with one hand.
High Definition Screen and comfortable memory

The large screen of the Nokia Lumia 920 using AMOLED technology, abandons its predecessor in favor of IPS technology with wide viewing angles. The display loses contrast, but it is still very acceptable (1000:1) and gaining brightness (400 cd / m²). In a high-definition (1280 x 768 pixels), its display quality is as good as that of its competitor Windows Phone HTX 8X. Operating with a micro-SIM, the Lumia has a standard connector and limited to micro USB and a 3.5 mm jack. The generous internal memory of 32 GB (a little over 29 GB available to the user) is not scalable – in the absence of MicroSD card reader (although this type of equipment is now possible on the new Windows phone). However, users may store in the cloud (SkyDrive) up to 7 GB of files.
Very pleasant to use and autonomy acceptable

In terms of battery, the Nokia Lumia 920 smartphone carrying a strong battery 2000 mAh battery for better surfing on 3G (5 hours) and video playback (6 h 30) that the 8X, but less well in calls (9 h 28). These results remain modest in the face of competitors like the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, but sufficient to pass the course of the day.
Photo as gifted in video

Featuring an 8.7 megapixel sensor, the Nokia Lumia 920 impresses with photo and more video. Boarding house technology PureView is the undisputed champion of successful shots in low light. The photographs are certainly noisier than those produced in full light, but the result is stunning. However, with sufficient light, the iPhone 5 offers, we believe, an image with more dive therefore more flattering. With few applications, Nokia complete the whole as Creative Studio to retouch your photos or Panorama views of together. Finally, only smartphone currently equipped with a stabilizer like compact cameras, the Nokia Lumia 920 can produce superb high-definition video (up to 1080p).

But this new innovative smartphone to other members of this tribe with some original features such as wireless charging. Nokia sells Indeed, three accessories of 70 to 90 euros, which is connected to the mains and which consist of an induction plate on which it is enough to put its mobile to recharge. Practice but a little expensive. Finally, the Nokia Lumia 920 has a touch screen that can be used with gloves. It is not silly, with the coming winter.
