    Is it odd that video audio recording is in stereo, but the voice and audio recording is in mono?

    Voice and audio recording
    • Recording: Voice recording in MMS, Voice recording in OneNote
    • Audio recording file formats: AMR
    • Audio recording codecs: AMR-NB, GSM FR
    • Audio recording features: Mono with high dynamics

    I think those to are routed differently, maybe that is why ? But if this is true, that is great news! That also might mean that there is a software update coming for the 920, which would unlock stereo recording.

    The only way to know for sure, is to examine the audio track from a 928 video file. If you open it in VLC > codec information ., its right there.

    The only thing I see being a better stat is the xenon flash and the AMOLED screen (if you like actual black pixels). I personally can live without the slightly less weighted a slimmer 928 as the 920 has more color options

    the color thing is just a matter of time

    again but that doesn't explain why talk time is so more when both screens would be off.
    Actually it does. The voltage level isn't directly tied to the AMOLED being on or off. It's the core operating voltage of the phone, likely rectified/step-down to the voltage of the various components in the phone. The fact that they are using lower voltage means there is less power dissipation on the phone; i.e. less waste heat. I would guess that the CPU and radios are 1) newer die - less power dissipation, 2) more efficient with CDMA. Combine all of these factors and you can quickly see the times going up on everything. The CPU/radios likely being newer dies with less current leakage is probably one of the biggest power savings for standby and actual talk time.

    Lets not forget that the 928 battery is not the same battery. It is a Li-po vs the 920's Li-on. It could just be a better battery.

    i suppose. i'd be extremely interested with someone digging deeper and seeing if there is actually a difference in the CPU (something like the samsung s4 and the HTC one. same family but the S4 has a slightly modified chip hence why it's the only snapdragon 600 running at 1.9 vs the reg 1.7). it's still blowing my mind the difference is so big. maybe it just me i suppose.

    I saw new info about Lumia 928 in this particular website stated about the processor use which is (website = Nokia Lumia 928 Officially Announced, Coming to Verizon USA on May 16 | SymbianTweet).
    Processor:1.5GHz dual core, Qualcomm MSM8960+WTR
    Any different with the previous Lumia 920 ? what is +WTR means ? I believe the Lumia 920 does not have this. Any info is welcome. N

    So where are the Lumia 920 'size' apologists? Glad Nokia realized what an overweight brick 920 was. Hoping for an even lighter (less than 150g) Catwalk.

    Cradling their iphones with otterbox cases in yellow to look like a lumia 920 and weigh rougly the same too
    Don't think ive heard anyone with a 920 ever apologise for it being too heavy.

    I never thought the 920 was too big... I've always carried my phone on my belt, in a pouch. I guess it goes back to when I was a paramedic and a firefighter, with a belt full of stuff. A pouch with gloves, a holster with scissors and other stuff, a 4-cell Maglight (for light as well as self-defense), and one of these:

    After carrying all that on your belt for a while, even one of these will seem light:

    Well....I dont know what to expect here now. Not sure if this is this is attitude of 'some' people or just plain childish. My original post was posted with genuine intention to share what I heard from other website and asked for more clarification from the fellow wpcentral follower that might know the answer. I might be wrong, but I have a feeling the answer from Hopmedic and than continuity post from Mobilevortex is useless and not helpful at all. If you guys dont know the answer and cant provide with anything constructive, just be quiet and let other people that might know the answer help. This same goes to other, if cant help, better be quiet and dont screw up for others.

    Nazir, MobileVortex was wrong - you didn't forget your sarcasm font, you forgot your sense of humor font. The water-tight rabbit comment was meant to be a joke. Lighten up.

    Oh, and the next to my comment is a clue.

    Are rabbits water tight? Surely they must take on water the same as any other air breathing mammal.

    Well, certainly they're not as water-tight as say a dolphin, which is also a mammal but given that Nazir pointed out to us the fact that the processor involves Water-Tight Rabbits, someone must have innovated them. Has to be something genetic, I think.

    Not a fan of rabbits - Can't trust an animal that eats its own faeces and now that they are watertight... Well that's almost as dangerous as cats with opposable thumbs...

    Doesn't the 920 also have Gorilla Glass 2 ?
