9. Nokia Lumia 920: The Lumia 920 hints are better times ahead not just for Nokia but also for the makers or the Lumia’s OS Windows 8, Microsoft. The phone is brilliant and runs very well. In fact it is even possible to use the touch screen with gloves on!

7. Nokia Lumis 520: Probably one of the best cheap smartphone available on the market right now the Windows 8 running Lumia 520 is also one of the best.

Walmart has recently slashed the prices of the Nokia Lumia 920, offering the device for $39.99 on a two-year contract. Whereas, AT&T is selling it for $99.99 on a two-year contract.
With the slash in prices, it seems like the retailers are preparing for the launch of Nokia’s upcoming EOS. Expected to head to AT&T, the Nokia EOS is a top-end smartphone, powered by Windows Phone 8 (WP8).
With the launch of Nokia EOS, it is expected that the demand of the Lumia 920 will be affected. Launched in November 2012, the Lumia 920 is a Windows Phone 8 powered smartphone that got Nokia good fortunes.
Among other smartphones, the Nokia Lumia 925 was released on T-Mobile and the Lumia 928 on Verizon. Both the devices were rolled out with minor updates as compared to the Lumia 920.
Whereas considering the Nokia EOS, the smartphone is expected to hit the market with a huge and impressive 41-megapixel rear-facing camera with Xenon flash to offer better picture quality even in low light conditions.
Certain pictures of the device that leaked online show it to be similar in design as compared to the Lumia 920. The pictures show the smartphone with a bump at the back to support the massive camera.

Nokia Lumia 928 vs Nokia Lumia 920 : Would We See Remains of Lumia 920 in Its Heir ?

Nokia will soon bring out its brand new flagship smartphone, the Lumia 928, on Verizon in just a couple of days. And what everyone is dying to find out is just how much has changed in the new offering in comparison with the Lumia 920. Here’s our take on that, to help you out.

To start with, one of the first and most obvious differences you will come across is in the design. While the Lumia 920 has sharp edges and a blocky look, the Lumia 928 is expected to be sleeker, but with a slightly convex bulge on the back, and almost no bezels.

And then there’s the update to the display. Even though both the Lumia 920 and the Lumia 928 have 4.5-inch screens with 1280X867 pixel resolution, the former has an IPS LCD display while the latter will feature an OLED screen. This would not just help make liven up the colors on the screen, but will also make it more energy efficient.

The Lumia 928 is expected to be slightly taller and thinner than the Lumia 920, but its thickness might go up due to its camera. However, it will be lighter than its predecessor. In terms of camera, both phones have an 8.7 MP offering with Carl Zeiss optics, but the Lumia 928 comes with a better Xenon flash for improved low light photography. However, the BSI sensor in the Lumia 920 will be missing in the Lumia 928. The front-facing camera in the Lumia 928 is expected to have a resolution of 1.2 MP, as opposed to the Lumia 920’s 1.3 MP offering.

Both phones come fitted with a 2,000 mAh battery, but the Lumia 928’s is an Li-polymer battery which promises longer operations without the need to look for a charger. In addition, Nokia has also put in a more powerful speaker in the Lumia 928, as well as a more powerful mic for recording. Unlike the Lumia 920, the Lumia 928 isn’t going to be as colorful and will only come with a black or a white body.

Nokia Lumia 920 Vs Samsung Galaxy Vs Apple iPhone 5—Nokia Airs A Jibe At The Giants

Going by the latest ad campaign for the Nokia Lumia 920 that runs on Windows 8, we do feel Nokia is planning to hit the Samsung Galaxy lineup and iPhone 5 in their gut but is one advert enough? Nokia is working hard indeed – trying to hit a six that has been eluding it with the likes of Samsung and Apple in control of the smartphone pitch.

 

The Nokia Lumia seems like a game changer for the Finnish-player yet there is a lot more it has to do to make a mark.

 

The campaign on air tickles our funny bone but the message it leaves behind is the furor over two groups (the bride and groom’s camps here) fighting over the superiority of the Samsung Galaxy series or the Apple iPhone 5. All that the Lumia 920 users do is snap away and enjoy the bedlam!

 

How Nokia believes the advert to drive their message clearly is something out of my understanding. Will users indeed understand the concept of Lumia’s PureView lens being hundred notches up Samsung and Apple lenses?  Ask me and I am confused. It is time that Nokia’s campaigns highlighted what the Lumia can really do—in a way that its competitors cannot!… Read the rest

HTC First vs. Samsung Galaxy Note 2 vs. Nokia Lumia 920: The Complete Facebook Experience or a Powerful Smartphone?

HTC finally unveiled its Facebook smartphone just a couple of weeks ago, but we’re wondering if it stands a chance against the more popular high-end smartphones. Even if you are a complete Facebook addict, would you opt for a Facebook phone over a smartphone that can run the Facebook app and do much more on the device? We’re pitting the HTC First against the two bestsellers, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and the Nokia Lumia 920.

Even though its 4.3-inch screen is the smallest among the 3 devices, the HTC First has the highest resolution of 342 ppi against the Galaxy Note’2 5.5-inch screen with ppi count of 267 and the Lumia 920’s 4.5-inch screen with 332 ppi. But when it comes to power, we have to lean more towards the Galaxy Note 2 for its quad-core 1.6 GHz processor and 2 GB of RAM, which works wonders in comparison with the HTC First’s dual-core 1.4 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM or the Lumia 920’s dual-core 1.5 GHz processor with 1 GB of RAM.

For the photo lovers, both the Lumia 920 and the Galaxy Note 2 offer an 8 MP rear camera – the former coming with Carl Zeiss optics even. You will be disappointed with the HTC First’s 5 MP rear camera though. While the Lumia 920 and the First have a 2000 mAh battery, the Galaxy Note 2 promises a longer life on a single charge thanks to its 3100 mAh battery.

But, it all comes down to the price. If you’re budget conscious, the First should be a decent option to consider. But if you have the moolah to spend, you’re better off going for the Galaxy Note 2, or if you really love the Windows Phone 8 experience, the Lumia 920.… Read the rest

Nokia Lumia 928- Say Lumos To Weave Magic- May Might Bring Lumia 920’s Offspring To Life

Lumos! And a halo takes me away into the world of Nokia. In the bright light, I glimpse a Nokia Lumia 928 in making. Tring tring! My Lumia 920 jolts me back to reality. Nokia has no plans to launch a Lumia 928, err, does it?

Unbelievably, leaks doing the rounds suggest that its flagship device the Lumia 928 is set to illumine the smartphone zone this May. The snippet hardly reveals anything expect a suave white body that is set to woo back those who abandoned Nokia for Samsung or Sony.

We failed to get any official comment from the Finnish makers. One byte we managed to get is from Stephen Elop, CEO of Nokia saying, “I don’t know because we haven’t announced the Lumia 928.”

Bytes come and go but does our imagination? Here is the magic wand from our mind that has conjured these specs for the Nokia Lumia 928:

  • 4.5-inch display, 1280 x 768
  • 8.7-MP shutter
  • 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor
  • 32GB internal storage

Till its May 15, go back to sleep, perhaps you too could say lumos to Lumia dreams. For now, it is just leaks and ideas that dominate our dreams of what the 928 could offer.

Nokia Lumia 920 Shuts Samsung Galaxy S4 Up- The Shutter Stabilization Story Leaves Samsung High But Dry

I have been waiting to announce my grand buy this year. No, I do not mean the Samsung Grand. I have the Samsung Galaxy S4 in mind. Before I go gaga over its sexy physique, too-die-for features, its beamer of a display—I am a tad let down with its shutter lacking stability.

While admitting that I love the shutter’s 13-MP tag that brings my clicks to life, shaky hands at times do mar my mod. But why could the Galaxy S4 not have an optical image stabilizer?

In a lance war with the Nokia Lumia 920, my buy bows down just because of its shutter story. A video doing the rounds on the web, shows both smarties tugged on to a remote controlled gaming car, the snaps from both Nokia and Samsung prodigies left me in no doubt as to who wears the crown.

While shelling a decently lump bill for the Samsung Galaxy S4, I did not really think about the stabilization spec. Today, I rather regret that the cake could have been the tastier if this cherry made it to the top.

When I eye to capture my particularly mischievous niece on my Samsung Galaxy S4, I sigh at its shaky shots. And how would I get wow shots at night for all those terrace parties with friends?
