A Stylish and Powerful Smartphone
Nokia Lumia 920 looks familiar. It looks just like the Lumia 800 with the same polycarbonate body, just glossier. In fact, Nokia has managed to completely differentiate the style of its high and medium range Windows Phone range that they will be hard to miss in a crowd. Lumia 920 follows this tradition.
With dual-core processors now supported by Windows Phone 8, it was expected that all ambitious high-end and medium range Windows Phone Smartphones will support dual-core processors. Nokia Lumia 920 did not disappoint boasting of a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, the first Nokia Lumia Phone to go dual-core (it actually shares this record with Nokia Lumia 820, which was unveiled along with it).
However, what is important in a smartphone is performance not specs. Does Nokia Lumia 920 perform? Early hands-on review by lucky tech journalists and bloggers who have actually seen this phone in action, suggests the phone is very smooth, following in the tradition of current Nokia Lumia Phones in the market. It features 1GB RAM.
