and 1GB RAM. It’s not mar­ket-lead­ing but it speeds the phone up sub­stan­tially.

Also im­pres­sive is the phone’s 8.7-megapixel rear cam­era. Nokia’s cam­eras, with Carl Zeiss lenses, have a solid rep­u­ta­tion and this model ce­ments it. Pho­tos look sharp, nat­u­ral and highly de­tailed.

Nokia’s po­ten­tial come­back phone is not per­fect, though. It is lim­ited by the Win­dows Phone 8 Store that still suf­fers from ma­jor omis­sions, its bat­tery life should be bet­ter given its size, it won’t ac­cept a me­mory card even though the soft­ware sup­ports it, and its bulk will be di­vi­sive.

The Lu­mia 920 is a stand­out smart­phone, how­ever, and the best Nokia has made in some time.
