NOKIA LU­MIA 920 Screen size: 4.5 inches

Business Traveler (USA) - - TECH SAVVY -

920 hand­set was one of the big­gest sur­prises of last year – not least be­cause it is ac­tu­ally re­ally, re­ally good. It has been a long jour­ney for the Fin­nish gi­ant, which even­tu­ally opted to kill its in­house op­er­at­ing sys­tem, Sym­bian, in fa­vor of Mi­crosoft’s Win­dows Phone in 2011. The 4.7-inch Lu­mia 920 shows off just what a good de­ci­sion that was. The big, vivid screen squeezes on lots of Mi­crosoft’s “live tiles” – mov­ing icons that dis­play in­for­ma­tion from apps and con­tacts. As we have come to ex­pect from Nokia, the Carl Zeiss lens is a big strength, al­low­ing you to cap­ture great stills and video. The 920 is fun, in­tu­itive and fast, al­though, while the am­bi­tious Win­dows Phone Store is grow­ing, it still lags far be­hind pop­u­lar Ap­ple’s App Store and Google Play (the re­branded An­droid Mar­ket).
