    Exclusive Lumia 820 and 920 thread...(u can be specific about each device)

    You loved vs You hated!


    I loved: The sleek new avatar, colours, the OS of course.

    I hated: The specs are slightly mediocre in this day and age don't ya think...


    Again, it just a question.

    I think the specs are fine, the only thing that bothers me is I can't decide between white or red.

    My friend, I have been using a Flagship phone by Moto. With good specs. And believe me, this OS, Android, doesn't deserve this hardware. It is 1.2 GHz, dual core, and IT STILL LAGS.

    The reasons I wrote that was since there are other phones that have had these specs a while ago. And since the people have already seen quad cores, announcing a dual core NOW, is like slightly taking a step backwards. I could be wrong.

    I really liked the curved glass on the 920 and thought it was a missing ingredient from the 900/N9 models.

    I don't like the glossy finish on the phones. I would be wiping fingerprints every other day, plus I think a matte finish looks more high-end

    I would have preferred a more subdued/muted color like they did with the N8 series

    I think Samsung beating them to the punch with the Ativ S unveil killed a lot of the excitement. If it hadn't been for the Ativ S, we'd be fawning over the high-res screen and dual-core processor of the 920. But now we're looking at something with equal or lesser specs to a Samsung phone we saw last week.

    Also, regarding the 8 megapixel "Pureview"...in the epic words from Top Gun, "Son, your ego is writing checks your body can't cash."

    Finally, where's the cyan?! That was the best Lumia 900 color.

    My only concern is if it (920) will be too bulky coming from my 800. On the other hand I would love that big screen.

    For the 820 I don't care much for the pop on back covers...

    Loved: 332 ppi screen, Pureview camera enhancements
    Hated: Glossy finish (feels cheap), 10.7 mm thickness, 185 gm weight (really?)

    Loved:
    Optical Image Stabilization for smooth video and great night photography (even WITHOUT flash!)
    PureMotion display. Most touch sensitive and a refresh rate that is twice as good, reducing blur
    SmartShoot - Photo Bombers have been pwn3d
    Cinemagraph - add animation to pics. Hello Harry Potter albums!
    Wireless charging - and deals with Virgin and Coffee Bean. Love to just lay phone on table at coffee bean and have phone charging
    NFC - touch the phone to JBL speaker or headphones to link them

    Dislikes (not hate):
    No SD card expansion for the 920.

    Loved:
    +The much improved camera on the 920 with the motion control and all that.
    +The higher res screen
    +The lovely curved glass that 800 owners got but 900 owners didn't before
    +More onboard memory
    +More RAM
    +Dual-core processor (which will make no difference in normal use, but should allow for some more capable apps, better games)

    Hated:
    - The damn glossy finish. Looks like cheap Samsung crap. That is pretty close to a dealbreaker all by itself for me. Nokia needs to go back to the much more practical and classy matte finish.

    -The flagship phone is even bigger and heavier than the L900 I have now, at a time when I am questioning whether or not I want a huge roofing tile in my pocket all day. I want to see a premium, smaller phone from Nokia, not just cheap decontented ones. Make a true iPhone competitor in the the slim 4"-4.1" size factor, but with better than 800x480 resolution.

    Overall, a really nice effort on their part, but I'm not in the market for another phone for 18 months, so this is just a blip on the radar for me. There will be much better choices out by the time I have an upgrade available. I just hope they aren't all gigantic 4.8" screened monsters wrapped in glossy plastic, otherwise I might be getting an iPhone 5 instead. :blush:

    Are all the 920 colors glossy? I read on engadget that the gray and black cases have a matte finish...

    Their spokesman on the subject said they did not want to defile the cse. I can somewhat understand it and while it would be nice to have its not a big deal to me with the 32GB of storage memory. I think they cold have kept the same size and put it somewhere in a manner just like the sim card tray.

    Liked: upcoming Nokia apps, features, camera technology, and the hands on view

    Disliked: the rehashed look and no wp8 goodness

    Hated: being able to come here and look at who replied last and know the context of their post before entering, and to once again have another event be ruined by redundant posters who think we didn't hear them the first time they said they weren't pleased

    I'm about 98% sure that this is because of Skydrive. Who's going to use SkyDrive if they have a sd card.

    Now before anyone says "well what about the Ativ?" I think Samsung had a little more leverage than Nokia. Nokia NEEDS Microsoft right now. Samsung has Android on lock. If Microsoft told them "no removable memory" they could have just said "Pass, we've got Android anyways. We dont really need you Microsoft"

    If this was about SkyDrive, the 820 wouldn't have an SD card slot either. But it does. This is about the Lumia 920's unibody case and nothing more.

    And Samsung isn't going to tell Microsoft to go pound sand. Samsung has a sizable laptop and desktop business, remember? Even if they abandon Windows Phone, they're still a major partner with Microsoft.

    Y'all know the 820 is only expandable to 32gb right? So they both have the same memory. Are y'all asking for more memory?
