    Overall, a favoable review. Same hashed, and re-hashed, complaints about apps and device size...

    "The Lumia 920 also wins as a GPS unit. The Maps app in all Windows phones comes from Nokia (which owns Navteq, one of the Big Two in map data). And it is really good. It shows traffic, aerial photography, public transportation, the works. And it has none of the problems that plague Apple’s Maps app. It even lets you download map data to your phone, so you can search and navigate when you’re offline or don’t want to rack up astronomical roaming fees.


    The one thing the Maps app doesn’t have is spoken navigation instructions. On its own phone, however, Nokia supplies an app called Nokia Drive, which adds spoken turn-by-turn directions — another win for the 920"

    Pretty fair and on point I'd say. Much more so than most of the reviews I've seen.

    I generally enjoy Pogue's reviews. Also, I've found him to politely answer his emails, and note errors to his articles, if warranted.

    He is, and he's an Apple fan, so it's a good sign that he gave the 920 a fair shake. Though he's always been pretty solid. He's a real journalist, not a stupid hipster blogger like most of these technology writers.
