Nokia Lumia 920 and the PureMotion HD+ Display

Nokia Lumia 920

The Nokia Lumia 920 will have a 4.5" WXGA, 1280x768 PureMotion HD+ display. It is being billed as the fastest and brightest displays and has the most sensitive touch responses.

We've been impressed with Nokia's ClearBlack technology found on other Lumia Windows Phones, such as the Lumia 900, and from what we have witness during today's press event the PureMotion technology definitely takes things to the next level.

The PureMotion HD+ technology works to improve three key areas of screen quality; display speed, display brightness and touch responsiveness.

Now I won't pretend to understand the science of what drive PureMotion but in reading Nokia's White Paper on the technology, PureMotion addresses the inadequate moving image quality in mobile displays. It leverages the high speed rendering capabilities of the graphic engine which results in smoother videos and the elimination of blurred displays while scrolling, navigating, playing games, using the camera viewfinder, etc.

PureMotion WXGA Screen

The Lumia 920's screen will also have a pixel count of 1280x768. The HD+ in PureMotion refers to the fact that the Lumia 920 will have 7% more than a 720p display and 60% more than DVGA. The screen will be able to show content rendered at 60fps without blur. The 15:9 aspect ratio is also believed to be the best balance for content view and user interface controls. The user interface controls are closer to your fingers and less contortion is needed.

With regards to screen brightness and functionality outdoors, PureMotion taps into the low reflectivity of the ClearBlack technology and adds a high luminance mode for backlight LED-driving and contrast enhancement.

The end result is a more functional and readable screen outdoors on those bright, sunny days. With the example below you can pick out more detail in the background (as well as the overall image) when comparing the Lumia 900 to the Lumia 920.

Finally, PureMotion HD+ technology offers the most sensitive touch. The super sensitive touch that Kevin Fields demonstrated during the Nokia Press Event will allow you to manipulate your Lumia 920 with gloves on. It will also allow women to utilize their finger nails without the need to make contact with their actual fingers.

PureMotion improves touch

The technology adapts its sensitivity according to user input method, making touch usage faster, more natural and accurate. My only reservation with this aspect of PureMotion HD+ is how will pocket carry come into play? More than like you will just have to make sure your Lumia 920 is under a lock screen or turned off before pocketing it. If not you may accidentally activate something through your pants.

PureMotion HD+ sounds very appealing and from what hands on time Dan has had with the Lumia 920, he considers it a really nice. It's definitely a new feature from Nokia that makes the Lumia 920 attractive.

Mafijoco says:

i am a bit sceptical as to  the automatic stuff happening with the screen. Will that affect the speed of the os , i mean i think the S4 is doing all the stuff so  less mhz for the os ?
If you can ask daniel as to how responsive the os is better , worse or same  as to  Mango?

sholokov says:

We have two cores. Maybe one is dedicated to OS. Is that technically possible?

Neusyn says:

I'm not sure but I thought MS knew how to process programs to a specific core only. I remember that in Vista. So I would think it's possible but I doubt that's the case.

dnasmyth says:

I program PCs not phones, but they claim it is hardware accelerated with mean a graphics processor not one of the cores.

ayejay0601 says:

How does the screen look compared to the Retina display?  Of all the features of the iPhone, the only one I am really jealous of is the Retina display.

Gorki247 says:

Apparently, the Lumia 920 has a 331 PPI display which is higher than the ‘retina’ display of the iPhone 4S.

kenosando says:

Yes, it barely edges out the iPhone 4/4S display at 331 PPI compaired to 329 for iPhone. Essentially, this is same screen (IPS LCD) the iPhone has, just bigger, and more surrounding technology (refresh rate, latency, reflective properties, etc.).

Curtieson says:

Wiki lists the iPhone 4/4S as having 326 PPI. (FYI to others reading)

KoreyTM says:

Sounds good to me. The iPhone can take its "Retina Display" and shove it. Ours is better. lol

procen says:

I read that it has a 331 ppi display and it's higher than a retina display.

mabdinur85 says:

Well in a simplistic answer ... the Nokia 920 has 332ppi, whereas iPhone4/4S has 326ppi. Apple stated that anything over 300ppi is Retina Display in their marketing lingo. But keep in mind the iPhone Retina Display is 3.54" whereas the 920 is a 4.5" display, so a bigger display pegged with a higher resolution makes 920 have a great display atleast on paper. Just so that you can learn how to do the math; ppi = [sqrt(length^2+width^2) / screen_size]. Frankly this is the issue with Nokia; in this whole keynote they didn't dilute things down for people into the hype of $10 words like Retina Display or Megapixels. The whole keynote was devoid of telling users that megapixels don't count, that PureMotion HD+ was blah but nothing of essence that everyday users can hold as tangible progress. The entire PureMotion HD+ concept is a big deal, it uses Software to inspire hardware ... it increases the screen luminance in glare induced conditions increasing visibility added with Clear Black Display polarizers. The refresh rates on these screens are greater than industry standard for cell phones ... I loved the product; I just think the message could've been delivered with more spit and shine.

Daniel I'm sure you're sick of the questions at this rate but how does the 920 feel to hold? Is it big/cumbersome or could you see yourself carrying it around without much difficulty? 
I've an 800 so I'm not sure how I feel about going so much bigger.

nizzon says:

Good question. I hope Nokia comes out with a smaller high end phone early next year or something. 920 looks too big for me. :(

dasfoto says:

It's only a tenth of an inch wider and a tenth of an inch taller than the 900. Percentage-wise that's only 3.3% wider and 2% taller. I can't imagine it would feel that much different.

RSB54 says:

I'll be waiting for the same, no desire for a phone this big no matter what the specs.

JPDVM2014 says:

Unfortunately, people wanting smaller phones are in the minority. I wouldn't hold out hope for a smaller flagship phone. 
 
 

Bushybro says:

Motorola failed, Nokia wins in the innovation department. Next to the slaughter, iPhone

Aldoron says:

If Motorola made a WP, I probably would have bought one. Nokia will be getting my money next.

lemonsteveo says:

Yeah, they brought a bigger battery, woopidoo...

Ho Hey says:

Return of pocket dialing

NarcoSleepy says:

I can't wait to butt-dial all of my friends!

lippidp says:

I think that was more a symptom of the "call" button of old rather than stylus-based touch screens. Pockets are not friendly to phones. Put it in a holster on your belt. That's what Men do.

cdbstl76 says:

Not any real men do holsters that I know. Only men who wear pleated pants and/or have a mustache use those...nuff said

sholokov says:

Real men don't have mustache? Kids ....ha

cdbstl76 says:

If you mean by "kids", not so old I still think a mustache is In, than yeah, 40 and younger are kids... Gladly

Ho Hey says:

I don't wear holsters because I don't want some idiot on the crowded buses of Chicago easily snatching my shit. Not because I'm not a "real man"

lippidp says:

That is why Men also do not tuck in their shirts.  We can't be constrained like that.

KoreyTM says:

 
+1 
 
And don't mind, cdbstl76. He's just generalizing. I'm a 25 year old who, on a regular work day, can do manual labor pulling network cable or sit down at meetings with a company's CFO, CIO, and/or CEO to plan out system deployments or assist with a sales pitch. I wear a holster. It's the most convenient way to access my phone, and it doesn't allow the phone to overheat as it sometimes would in my pocket.
 
And, I'm not sure how this applies, but I don't have a mustache.

dasfoto says:

Only if you leave the screen unlocked when you put t in your pocket. You can probably butt dial with any touch screen if you put it in your pocket unlocked.

eyesoreM says:

Proximity sensor will take care of that...

IBulian says:

Proximity sensor, at least in Lumia 800 , is active only during a call. The screen does NOT turn off in any other situation, not even if you press it agains your face :p. Too bad, I would too like the proximity sensor to be functional all the time and cut the hardware buttons as well. On more than one ocasion I've accidentally pressed the power button long enough to trigger the "slide down to power off" message to appear, even with the screen locked; hate that

trmnrs says:

The proximity sensor is also used when the phone is in your pocket and you get a text or notification. It keeps the screen off and turns it on if you take it out your pocket within 10 seconds or so

sdreamer says:

You can verify that this works by having someone send you a bazillion text messages and keep your thumb over the proximity sensor. The screen will stay off.

GTechQuest says:

Can't wait to get my 920

cgold1 says:

So excited about this display.
Glad they skipped the temptation to go with oled pentile.

IBulian says:

-100; like the pentile amoled (hooked on  my lumia's black levels), would have loved the super_amoled_+hd_super_duper_hyper_regular_RGBStripsSubpixels; or whatever it's called nowdays. Love 920, but I'm grumpy about no amoled stuff ...

procen says:

You can  get Samsung Ativ it has AMOLED display. I'm waiting for your next complaint.

trazer says:

Will screen sensitivity be affected poorly by adding a screen protector?  I don't bother with one nowadays, but many do.
 
Screen is curved?  I personally would like to see a brightness comparsion against Galaxy S3, HTC superLCD and iPhone also.  My Samsung phones are totally useless outdoors, my HTC works great.  Wondering where the Nokia will fit in.

tissotti says:

Lumia 920 has an polarizing filter so it should help with the outdoor visibility. If you can test Lumia 900, it has polarizing filter as well in form of the Clear Black technology by Nokia.
 
And if Lumia 920 supposedly has brighter screen than Lumia 920. 

cdbstl76 says:

Nothing today is better than the 900, so if 920 is better when it hits the market...well, there's your answer

TechAbstract says:

Lumia 900 has the best screen for reading outdoor. Couple sites already tested it. 920 should be better than 900 because of brightest screen.

moc426 says:

Well damn, this looks very impressive. I feel like I can't resist but to sell my 900 and get this.

Take my money already!!

BK-one says:

Date,carrier(s)?? This is where they are missing the point of an event.

SaviorXX9 says:

O.k.... This is it! This is my new phone. Sorry, Samsung. Bring it to AT&T!!!!!

NIST says:

I'm always 'activating something through my pants.' if ya know what I mean. *wink wink

eyesoreM says:

I have no idea what you mean. You'll have to elaborate ;-)

SleepyTheDon says:

Why does the Sammy WP8 appear to be more tempting

NIST says:

Probably the goofy colors and the plastic IKEA look of the phones. The metal accents are more 'adult' looking while the Nokia line is more playful, almost toy like looking. However, the Nokia is a better device. I just wish it was the size of the Sammy given the awesomeness of the PureView camera.

Neusyn says:

The only big draw towards the ATIV S is the microSD slot; if it supports microSDXC cards that'll be 96GBs on a phone potentially. And that attracts me since I don't get the best signal in the mountains.

NIST says:

That is a huge draw. If the Lumia920 came with an SD card slot, it would be nearly perfect

lemonsteveo says:

Perhaps something to do with the optics and lack of room inside? Just guessing, since the 820 has a slot but without the stabilization hardware.

Can we officially call the whole announcement a train wreck?  Nokia share price is negative fifteen percent, and falling.
Apparently the remaining investors weren't impressed, are throwing in their chips.
I have to say, withholding a ship date and pricing until "sometime in Q4" is pretty disappointing.  That smacks of the old pre-Elop Nokia, where they had trouble getting devices out the door.

tissotti says:

I woulnd't follow Nokia's stock too much and it this point it's Microsoft's job to announce when the OS is ready. Nokia can't say anything, just like Samsung couldn't 
When the OS is ready, Nokia is ready to ship. Nokia did say Q4 though.
 
Nokia's stock is so low that big investor groups are not allowed touch it. Meaning there are players who can play with the stock. 
Nokia's stock is one of the most short sold, almost 35% of all transactions are short selling the stock. 
Meaning today many where closing their stock they had shorted. It can raise 15% tomorrow or go 20% down again. That's been Nokia's stock for past year. 

But if nothing is close to ready, then why bother announcing?  Most people would have forgotten about these phones until late in Q4, when they're likely to hit retail.

GMJeff says:

Because iPhone 5 is right around the corner and Microsoft and their vendors like Samsung and Nokia want to let consumers get eyes on their devices to sway some possible apple purchases.

lubbalots says:

There won't be any swaying if they have to sit and wait 2-3 more months.

dasfoto says:

So you're saying most people will pick an inferior phone simply beause they can get it 2 to 3 months earlier? Not saying the iPhone5 is inferior, But if thay can just convince 1% of the potential iPhone5 buyers to wait for the Lumia 920, This press conference will have been worth it.

JPDVM2014 says:

Finally, someone gets it...this is exactly why these manufacturers are announcing early.

How do you sway an iPhone 5 purchase, without offering something that you have in return? 

fwaits says:

Not everyone is out of contract waiting for the Day 1 iPhone release either.  Or maybe they see the Lumia offerings and start reading up on them more and decide, wow this looks like a cool device, I think I want it, so they wait another month or 2 for it to release on the carrier of their choice (assuming it fits in with their preference here).  Why advertise a movie and show trailers months before it comes out?  To build some hype and get some interest going in people's heads.

lemonsteveo says:

Free purity headset for each preorder, that would sway me.

"Closing the stock you shorted," a.k.a. "short covering" makes the stock price go up, not down.  Could be "buy the rumor, sell the news".  I don't blame investors for being disappointed, though.  We need to know what carriers are going to have the phones available on what date.  I can assure you that Apple will announce pricing and availability next week.  I mean, Nokia needed to announce now to get people to hold off on iPhone 5 purchases until the Nokia is available.  But let's get going here.  This thing needed to be available the day iPhone 5 comes available, and that appears not to be happening.
 

jabtano says:

In a way yes, bought at $5. per,$3.per then again at $1.69 per as soon as saw this event I wanted to dump it all but held even though I think it's a mistake. both MS and Nokia had a chance today to make an statement they failed. WP8 needed to be out yesterday. Apple iphone5 is six days away and I bet yea within 7 days it will be in the stores. When your in the back of the pack there is no holding time you make bold steps and get it out there before someone else steals the thunder. to little too late again......

venetasoft says:

Stock Exchange = Casino = Don't waste your money, it s completely disconnected from reality.They only want to f##k your money, just stay out ;)

el-ojo says:

It's super dupper LCD IPS, No OLED. But the 820 will be CB AMOLED

SleepyTheDon says:

I love my 900 but I think im gonna switch to Galaxy S3(WP8)

MerlotC says:

A couple things I havent seen mentioned I'd like to know. Does the 920 have the Pureview rich recording feature and is there a gyroscope?

MerlotC says:

Thanks. The rich recording was what I most wanted (for taking to concerts) ...oh well.

kenosando says:

There doesn't appear to be Rich Recording like the Pure View 808, but it does have 3 microphones instead of the usual two. One aspect of the Lumia 920 Pure View is the OIS (optical image stabilization) which uses the gyroscope to reduce camera shake.

MerlotC says:

Really, 3 mics?...hmm, that could make a difference. The main feature that I liked in the rich recording demos was that it doesnt distort at high volume like when recording a band. I wonder if that is still the case with the 920, although I would of thought they would have mentioned that as a feature.

TechAbstract says:

Lumia 900 already has best screen for viewing outdoor.

peterjr1boom says:

Yellow tiles look so lush :3

JD Miles says:

With such great  video I would like to have seen an output like HDMI for output to the "big" screen, This is a phone I am drooling over with the great photo/video and it is a super bonus to tie all screens together with the windows 8 ecosystem.

kenosando says:

Nokia Play To is an app in the Marketplace that lets you output to DLNA-capable displays. Granted, there aren't too many out there, but there is that option.

dasfoto says:

Yup. I've used Play To going through my Xbox 360. Worked great.

LeiChat says:

Through your Xbox? Can you explain please?

Gorki247 says:

Currently only available to dashboard beta users, but once the new dashboard is released to the general public, you'll find that the Xbox now has DLNA support. There is a new Play To feature which works perfect with the Play To app on your phone (I guess it's no coincidence they gave it the same name), so you can stream all your media to your Xbox.

Just tried it and it works great. Thanks for the tip. And it really worked fast.

alrutani says:

There is a problem with Lumia 900 start screen when scrolling down it lags before reaching the bottom end like android. I hope they fixed the issue in 920.

Neo Nuke says:

If you're downloading stuff in the background or have low memory ot tends to do that.

ejlee072006 says:

Im sold... Im not waiting for 7.8

TechAbstract says:

All the cool apps and best games will be on WP8 I bet.

texas713 says:

As soon as my contract is up I'm ditching Samsung for Nokia

sfleuriet says:

Great article. Looks to be an amazing handset

jenjen4u says:

This is a lovely phone and ill probably get it but i dont think this phone has "enough" to make non windows phone users seriously consider it as their next smartphone especially when iphone5 is coming out too.

dasfoto says:

it will be interesting to see what the iPhone lacks compared to the 920. With a lot of people, though, it won't matter. The 920 can be far superior to the iPhone 5 and people will buy the iPhone5 just because it's an iPhone.

ayejay0601 says:

Its not the iPhone crowd that we should be targeting; its the android crowd.  Android controls a much larger share of the global smartphone market.  This phone and this software is really superior.  In fact, this is the first time a Windows Phone has had superior hardware to its competitors

jenjen4u says:

Yeh exactly what im thinking, in my opinion i strongly feel like this is a great product but at the same time i know its just not enough, there needs to be something like a windows phone with a holographic or transparent screen just to make the rest of the world turn their heads and wish they had a windows phone coz most people are just to lazy to research and realise there are better phones other than the iphone

1Rahtid says:

The average consumer shouldn't have to go "research" a smartphone to understand its capabilities. Its the job of marketing not only to bring that information to them but also to ensure that they mentally connect smartphone to a particular company through brand awareness. So far Microsoft has been a total fail at this aspect of product lifecycle. Until Microsoft step up the game Windows Phone, regardless of version, will be overlooked by the majority of consumers. If I were able to directly advise Microsoft right now, my one piece of advice would be go steal Apple's marketing executives and then pay close attention to what they say.

jenjen4u says:

Umm i think you dont get what im on about i know that an average consumer shouldnt have to do research but that is exactly why im saying for wp to have a significant impact in the mobile world they'll need something more than pureview tech from nokia coz most people probably wouldnt give a damn about it unless they googled about it... And youre right microsoft need to do more with the way they market their products. As for me i like to do my research coz it has always led me to make purchases i never regret

RawrrSavior says:

Very true unfortunately...

ejlee072006 says:

Apple users will always be apple dude...soon apple will be the same fate like winmo,webos,rim WP just started

UltimateKGB says:

I will never buy another Apple product after my iPad, Apple are bullys and it was boring

jenjen4u says:

And yeh to android users too but whatever i know its an uphill climb and i appreciate the technology of pureview but not many people out there will thats the problem

diod123 says:

I disagree - if advertised properly PureView will draw a big crowd. People want their pictures to look good its just that simple. If there is an option available so people don't have to drag around a seperate camera, people will love it. From what I have read, written by people that know photography, this is the best camera on a phone on the market.

natakur says:

Also, do any other phone cameras on the market do pinch to zoom? Can't think of any, correct me if I'm wrong. Do iPhone or SGIII have it? If there isn't I think it is a really great feature and should not be overlooked. 

jenjen4u says:

yeh i agree that people who know their photography will seriously consider this, but still alot of people dont understand the tech behind this phone is amazing and thats the sad truth, you know i bought a canon s95 and showed my family and friends they asked me how many megapixles i told them and they wernt impressed just because it was under 16mp, when they realised my pics came out better on my canon than their 16mp camera they started borrowing my camera -_-". This is an example that alot of people just wont understand the greatness of 920 =[... It just shows that nokia will need to do more IF their aim is to convince the world. whatever it is i hope they are successful coz i really like this 920 and 99.99% sure will be getting it unless there is more coming from nokia by end of the year. I just hope my family wont give me weird looks when they see me holding a bright yellow phone to my head =D

Gorki247 says:

I had an iPhone 4 before I switched to my Windows Phone and I never looked back. iOS is starting to look and feel dated.

jenjen4u says:

Oh yay there is hope =]

NIST says:

I just watched the Motorola presentation and I think Nokia killed all of the 3 Razors that were introduced today.

lemonsteveo says:

Lol, Nokia brought 2 swords to the fight, Motorola came up with 3 razors...

Neo Nuke says:

3 razors died 3 deaths by a thousand cuts.

TonyDedrick says:

Really need to get over this fanboyism. No, not all Apple users will always be Apple. I had a 3G and have had about 2 or 3 different iPods and currently have a Samsung Focus and a Infuse. So I'm a "whatever gadget fits my needs" kind of guy. And I have to think most who use any of these kinds of devices will use the one they like and best serve their needs, regardless of what brand it has on it. Certainly, that's not to say Apple (and Android) don't have their zealots. They do (as do WP). But we really need to stop getting carried away (fanboys of any brand) with trying to generalize those who don't buy the products we don't like. 

jenjen4u says:

My comment wasnt really meant to be about fanatics its more about if microsoft nokia or whatever company wants to impress the rest of world then in my opinion they'll have to do so much more. As i said i appreciate what nokia revealed today, but its not "enough" for the masses to start hyping about nokia or wp, so im basically saying if microsoft want to have a bigger impact in the mobile world then they need something to really shock the world.

procen says:

You want to shock the world and a big hype? Give everyone a free Nokia phones.

LeiChat says:

Looks nice and some of the tech is cool but after the Samsung I was hoping it would be a little thinner. Compared to the 820 there seems to be alot of excess space below the windows buttons at the bottom too. :(

Decision isn't made yet for me, gonna wait to see what HTC offer I think.

shafiqueek says:

That couldn't be helped, big battery, inductive charging coil and PureView take a lot of room, I'm actually surprized they managed to keep it so slim

mabdinur85 says:

My take on PureMotion HD+, as I stated in a comment above in small detail it is Software inspiring Hardware as opposed to the more usual route of Hardware defining Software. In this case the higher refresh rates are yielded from jucing the screen temprorarily to have an increased rise time, hence resulting in lower response time of the display ... lower response means higher refresh. In this case although it is for Grey to Grey transitions which are the fastest transitions to begin with rather than the ISO standard of Black to White and vice versa. In any case Nokia states the screen should hand 60Hz refresh rates, although I doubt the current need for a mobile phone screen like that, it seems a generation ahead of it's time. I wonder if the PureMotion HD+ like PureView uses proprietary Nokia Algrothms, or is a in built Driver from the screen manufacturer. The trade-off seems to be power consumption due to an increased peak average power, I wonder if this is a dynamic feature that runs only in high FPS demand situations or is it always 'ON'? As I mentioned before luminance is increased when glare conditions are sensed through the ambient light sensors, in the whitepaper it also says chromanance is also adaptive changed to compensate ... I would fathom this is a Nokia Agorithm that falls under the PureMotion HD+ stack. I really like the Synaptics Super Touch feature which is pretty cool and useful. If I had to guess it uses pattern recognition to determine the object making contact and plot it on an X,Y grid. Check out: http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/advancedcontent.htm for more on overdrive / RTC.

danygandhi says:

What about oleophobic coating, does Nokia fix it in the 920 because lumia 900 is a fingerprint magnet. It negates the clear black display as the smudges reduce the screen visibility in sunlight.

920 is mine...all mine *-*

erzhik says:

WP can't go after Android or Apple, because those fanbases are already set. What WP needs to do is go after new smartphone users.

JPDVM2014 says:

Agreed, but who they really need to go after are the sales people. A lot of people just go into a store and ask the employees what phone to get. There was s hope for certain iPhone and android users. My wife has had 2 android phones, and every time she complains about her phone, which is relatively often, I plant the seed of WP. Lol. I think I almost have her convinced.

IBulian says:

I'm sure they'll go for a slice of each : android, ios and new users and see what sticks ;)

TonyDedrick says:

You put out the best product, market it and hope that intelligent people who do their research and look for the best thing out there that will accomplish what they need.

WP is a fantastic product. Even with a lot of the hangups I've had from the beginning, I am pretty certain my next major phone purchase will be a WP8. MS just needs to get off their ass and do a better job at convincing those of us who don't frequent or even sniff sites like this that WP is a phone worth at least considering. No one I know even considers it as a viable option. Its merely a "Meh" when they are inquiring about getting new phones and I try to inform them about WP.

jmshub says:

While Android is the big share of smart phones, I have to wonder how many of the users are actual fans. It seems to me that a large share of Android users are simply people who bought a smartphone on Verizon before iphone, or whatever. It seems, at least to me, that a lot of them are ambivilent about the OS as a whole, and would be receptive to a more intuitive OS. That is the crowd that Nokia and Microsoft need to court...and with Nokia's recent comments on Samsung and jelly beans and whatnot, it seems like that is exactly what they intend to do.

Neusyn says:

MicroSD expansion slot? I don't see that! That makes me say no, everything else im in love with.

NogueiraJr says:

E no Brasil? Quando chega?

shotokq says:

So t mobile will be getting a low end nokia phone? Still 820 is nice but I will be happier with the 920. We should all complain about that cr@p.

Dante_Virgil says:

I love that phone, I really do, unfortunately I won't be buying it and for one reason and one reason only - no MicorSD slot. That's a big letdown as it is fantastic piece of technology. Shame on you Nokia. How 820 got MicroSD and 920 didn't ? Yeah 920 has 32GB instead of 8 but still 32 GB is far too little for some customers like me. I'm really disappointed 

hwangeruk says:

Nokia, make it plain:
 

  • We have a better screen than iPhone
  • We have a better camera than iPhone
  • Our phone connects to Facebook without running an app - like BBM but Facebook
  • Our phone connects to Hotmail (or GMail if you really want to)
  • We have wireless charging
  • You can get it in yellow.

 
They need to be more direct. But you watch, it will be "amazing every day" or some other lame phrase coming out for the adverts. Lets guess:
"moon on a stick on a whim"
"you can dream, you can Lumia"
"the future in your Lumia hand" hehrhrhr I dunno I can't talk this marketingese BS language.
Just tell people why its better. Period.
 
 

erichon99 says:

just saw a youtube video from this non-English speaking guy. He claims that the pricing of the 920/820 will be announced shortly after the iPhone announcement. I haven't read through all the comments to confirm this, but makes sense to me.  Hopefully pre-orders will also coincide

mans550 says:

Just to change the subject a bit. I saw BBC news report about an hour ago regarding Nokia where they focused entirely on falling shares. Its now serious time to help support windows phone. many people believe that Nokia and windows phone are rubbish, comparing us to the likes of RIM. I urge everyone to show you love of windows phone and Nokia by sending positive comments to people around you and make your voice herd over the internet that windows phone and Nokia are here to stay ;)

Best screen, best camera, best OS, best phone, the 920 period.

cedarlog says:

thats a revolutionary display

zacman says:

Engadget hands-on reports that the OS is choppy when switching to the app list and starting apps. Can anyone confirm that?

Loxias says:

The Verge's 920 hands-on says it was snappy and responsive.  Haven't read what Engadget had to say though.

At long last...this is the Windows Phone I have been waiting for. Ever since the Lumia 800 I have been waiting for a STRONG next-gen Windows Phone wiht the Lumia 800 design queues....and here it is. Praise the Lord...and take my money!

Looking at the spec sheet on nokia's website, the 820 does not support t-mobile's network. As a matter of fact neither the 920 or 820 do. What's up with that?

procen says:

If tmobile don't have any new Nokia phones we are screwed.

99.99% Of mobile devices on the market today weren't made for fanboys, geeks, enthusiasts, nerds or whatever you call yourselves these days. And that's why yall will complain until Jesus returns lol. I think that's the bottom line.

Gken says:

I'm glad I waited for wp8, this phone is gonna be epic.

blessthejon says:

Well, im gonna wait a bit. Hopefully they make one with a physical side qwerty keyboard. With like all the awesome features of the 920 like the screen and camera.

Check the vid at 1:50. The guy uses car keys to operate the screen. Although not advisable, but thats one hell of a sensitive capacitive screen!!
