Nokia Lumia 920 Full Review
October 31, 2012 at 02:48 GMT | By Dialaphone
Microsoft is re-launching its Windows Phone platform, completely rebuilding the operating system from the ground up so that it functions better than it ever has before. Windows Phone 8 could prove to be the weapon the software giant needs to really make its mark in the smartphone world and begin to take a significant share of the market away from Apple and Google.
Nokia has been a long-term partner of Microsoft, with its earlier Lumia devices synonymous with the Windows Phone 7 platform. However, with the imminent launch of Windows Phone 8 the field has opened up and HTC and Samsung have both joined the fray with upcoming WP8-powered handsets of their own. Nokia will undoubtedly be looking to re-establish itself at the vanguard of Windows Phone devices, but will the new flagship Lumia device stand up to the competition and set itself apart?

Earlier Lumias such as the 900 and 800 featured a distinctive unibody chassis and that design element has been continued through to the Lumia 920, with the smooth backing and rounded edges providing an excellent, minimalist frame which is both practical and looks fantastic. Although feeling quite large in the hand, the Lumia 920 is comfortable to handle and also feels solid and well built.
Manufactured from a polycarbonate material which aims to boost signal strength, the handset's outer shell is virtually unbroken across its entire frame, with physical buttons mounted on the right hand side of the device and being almost flush with the casing. The SIM-card tray fits into the top edge with a mechanism similar to that seen on recent iPhone devices, and a microUSB socket is mounted centrally on the bottom of the handset.
