- Nokia Lumia 920 in the test
- Data sheet
Who for the first time a Nokia Lumia 920 (recommended price: 649 euro) holds in his hand, soon noticed that the new top model of the Finns blows up standards. This Smartphone on the scale weighs 188 grams, it weighs more than the Samsung Galaxy touch 2 with his oversized large 5-inch screen. Even with the dimensions, the Lumia 920 has slightly more than other devices with the same screen size.
Processing: Powerful packaging
But this comes the new Lumia in housing, that needs to fear no comparison: compared with the usual suspects from Korea the construction is extremely solid and elegant.
The Apple mobile phones may seem high-quality still a trail with its metal and glass, but you trust the new Lumia higher robustness intuitively. The display is completely surrounded by solid-polycarbonate unibody, the display glass is curved at the edges tightening. The sides of the poly carbonate shell allow comfortable to access due to rounding, the top and bottom completely flat frame ensures uniqueness in a modern way.
For those who like very striking, can access to the Lumia 920 in red or yellow, for the more discreet style, there are white, black and grey housing. Regardless of the color picker, the tough material is dyed, scratches not provide color changes in the smooth surface.
Equipment: Hardware without compromises
The relatively high weight is also a consequence of the uncompromising features. That starts with the display, that is currently still small enough with 4.5 inch to give the impression that the Lumia is a small tablet. The resolution is 334 DPI at the limits of what benefits still good eyes Nokia.
The 1280 x 768 pixels maximum supported by Windows phone 8 offer an optimal stage Web pages, movies and photos. Keep, no detail on the track, the display is extremely angle-stable – the in-plane-switching technology (IPS) makes it possible. And thanks to more than 400 candela per square meter brightness it is still to use even on sunny summer days.
Also for the cold winter has made Nokia and touch screen made it more sensitive than usual. Fingers in gloves responds to the screen significantly more reliable than comparison displays, without that it would lead to incorrect operation. Any iPhone upgraders will notice that the Windows phone keyboard requires something more precise input.
A rapid Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 with two computing cores a 1.5 GHz clock frequency ensures that the Lumia 920 with nimble fingers can keep up very well and liquid converts commands. According to the specifications of the operating system, 1 GB memory is part of the display resolution.
The data store, Nokia had, however, freer choice: the Lumia 920 is delivered with 32 GB, of which 29 GB for the user are available. That’s more than enough space for most Smartphone applications; Nevertheless, the one or the other tester would have liked an extra slot for MicroSD memory cards.
Wireless standards: All aboard
Nothing to be desired, however, the wireless interfaces come up – quad-band GSM, quad band UMTS up to DC-HSDPA + are at a top-end Smartphone almost goes without saying. But the Nokia offers also Penta LTE. Also you with some certainty of following 900 and 2100 MHz on the program are in addition to the 800, 1800, 2600 MHz previously used in Germany. By the way, also a frequency major in the United States is 900 MHz.
Wi-FI is also popular in the States in a standard, which supports the Lumia 920 in addition to the b/g/n variants more common with us. Bluetooth is there goes without saying. In combination with the also built-in NFC technology, the database connection is here (pairing) often easy. Also for the fast file transfer and for upcoming ID and payment procedures it is reassuring that the Lumia supports this important NFC technology.
Thats still not wireless enough who, which can wirelessly recharge its Nokia – the necessary for this inductive coupling element is built into the Lumia 920, you have to buy the charging station but extra.
The hardware is crowned by a Carl Zeiss camera module. To photograph, you are once good default just over 8 Megapixels and the double LED Photo light. With the appearance, very good pictures can be make in good light. In bad light, the camera finally distanced the conventional competition.
An optical image stabilizer has the inevitable shaking hand against and allows for so much longer exposure times. It sheds more light on the sensor and cause that the Lumia 920 (pictured below left) the competition (pictured below right) is visibly superior. This is true whenever lack of light and especially for distant objects which helps no Flash.
But in everyday life can be just the beginning of great hardware. The software determines whether a Smartphone works. For Windows phone offers 8 with its ease of use, the informative lock screen and the flexible to the needs of own customizable start menu good conditions.
Nokia goes a step further with its offerings. To the camera, there’s about three additional lens apps. Allows composite panoramas, which however should be exciting for the fewest users.
Much more exciting is the ability to create small images with content moving in chunks known as animated GIF files. Nokia called the graph of cinema. So can be for example a nod or-schütteln on a Web page, without that you just would have to create a whole video to. It is also handy with the smart-shot lens combine the best facial expressions of more than one person from a series series.
And also from the Nokia – provided Windows phone 8 of public / Windows maps the resourceful Finns brought out once again the best for their own smartphones. With Nokia drive + a very reliable in our tests and powerful navigation available, far pushing back the request through the use of offline maps to a standalone GPS is already in the beta version.
With “City compass”, Nokia also offers an augmented reality orientation tool that gave extremely detailed in the test in Stuttgart information about restaurants, cultural sites, tourist attractions and much more in the immediate vicinity.
The city-compass to dominate even the navigation, including footpaths, public transport, taxis, also initially only in Berlin. An informed decision rather than a quiz is from the choice of the most pleasant, fastest or cheapest route.
Laboratory measurements: Strong in the laboratory
The measurements in the laboratory and connect showed then how subjectively some quick tester without measurement equipment the Lumia 920 encountered: described sometimes as low stamina is not verifiable by measurements. On the contrary, with almost six hours typical endurance in screen mode and Nokia is one of the very persistent smartphones even longer talk time in GSM networks. It meets the tendency of users to use his skills extensively…
Is on the phone than to note only peculiarity that’s quieter sound than usual for the called party. Radio, the new Windows phone 8 device is full on the height.
