The flagship product of the Windows Phone arena from Nokia, the Nokia Lumia 920 has now been made available in the United Kingdom by the Vodafone cellular operator. Earlier, the operator promised to release the Lumia 920 Windows 8 phone by the start of the Year 2013, and here it is now.
Customers can purchase the Lumia 920 from MobilePhonesDirect and Digital-Phone retailers in the United Kingdom. These retailers are offering the white and black version of the phone with free monthly plans from Vodafone. There are reports of red version of the Lumia 920 getting launched in the upcoming 10 days, but we aren’t for sure.
The phone runs on a powerful 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon processor, an Adreno 225 GPU and 1GB of RAM. With respect to other aspect, Lumia 920 offers 32GB of storage with no MicroSD slot, LTE, WI-Fi, Bluetooth 3.1 and DLNA connectivity, along with Dolby Headphone sound enhancement, built-in GPS and 2,000 mAh Li-Ion battery.
The phone uses Windows Phone OS 8, the rear 8 MP camera module possesses excellent low-light imaging capabilities. There was a test conducted by Engadget of Lumia 920′s low-light snapping capabilities, you can read about it here.
The phone is very likeable with a very nice hardware, though the specifications might not be the very best that you get in an Android phone, there is no noticeable slowdown in the operation of phone.
The aspect that really lets down the Lumia 920 phone is the lack of quality apps in the Windows Phone App store. Windows Phone OS has received nice reviews across the world, but that hasn’t translated into real-usage acceptance among customers. And when the number of customers seems very low in comparison to iOS and Android, things don’t look promising for Windows Phone.
What we say is if you like a phone with good hardware, social capabilities with all basic functionality requirements covered, and don’t care much about apps, there isn’t much to complain about the phone.
