RCT SCORE 5.6 / 10

RealClear Summary


Taking its place as Nokia's flagship Windows Phone 8 model, the Lumia 920 brings Nokia's PureView camera technology to the table for better low-light images through the camera's 8-megapixel sensor and optically stabilized lens. The 4.5-inch display boasts a resolution of 1280 x 768 and the capacitive touch screen can be operated wearing gloves.

It also offers wireless charging, NFC, a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor ad 32GB of internal memory (plus 7GB worth SkyDrive cloud memory from Microsoft).

Reviewers were really all over the map on this one. Some loved the hardware while voicing the usual concerns about the lack of apps currently available on the Windows Phone platform. Others were really turned off by the Lumia 920's design (too big and heavy).
