Nokia Lumia 920Conclusion

This is a beautiful phone with a few flaws, most of which can be fixed through software updates. Ignore the complaints about how heavy it is. You can slip it into your pocket and never know it’s there. The integration with contact lists from Facebook and LinkedIn is so nice it alone makes me want to stay with WP.

That said, this is my new phone. For its battery flaws, once I shut off LTE, it’s as reliable as any 3G phone. I can’t tear my eyes off the screen. I was at the iPhone 4 launch when Retina Display was introduced and Steve Jobs wouldn’t stop gushing over it. Well, Retina Display just took a sharp stick in the eye.

I live in an extremely iPhone-dense region, but you wouldn’t believe how many people have stopped to crane their neck at the Lumia when I’ve used it in a public place.

With its 4.5″ screen, it suits my fat fingers just fine. The main reason for replacing the iPhone is the screen is too small, and I am not alone in feeling this way.

Pros:

  • Gorgeous screen that puts the iPhone and Galaxy S III to shame.
  • Extremely fast and responsive
  • True multitasking
  • NFC
  • Nokia Maps & Nokia Drive

Cons:

  • Heaviest smartphone on the market
  • Gets very hot
  • Battery runs down fast
  • AT&T LTE stinks
