Pentaband LTE support
Nokia has led the way when it comes to pentaband 3G radios in its phones, so it was a natural progression to build the world’s first smartphone with pentaband LTE. This means you’ll be able to use LTE, which is capable of speeds up to ten times faster than traditional 3G networks, with more carriers, in even more places around the world.
Super sensitive touch
Maybe it’s not surprising when you consider Finland’s sub zero winters, but the Nokia Lumia 920 is also the first smartphone to have a touchscreen so sensitive, you can operate it with gloves, mittens, nails and even certain pens. This new super sensitive touch technology is the biggest leap forward for capacitive touchscreens since multi-touch gestures were introduced. It’s also worth noting that this super sensitivity doesn’t make the screen any more fragile, affect the water resistance, or increase the likelihood of coins or keys in your pocket accidentally making calls on your behalf.
Optical Image Stabilization
The Nokia Lumia 920 is the first ever smartphone globally available with Optical Image Stabilization. Thanks to a camera module pairing both sensor and lens-based optical IS, still images and HD video captured with the Lumia 920 will be steady, even if your video shooting hand isn’t.
60 FPS HD display refresh rate
The Nokia Lumia 920’s PureMotion HD+ is the latest technology advancement in smartphone displays. We’ve already talked about its sensitivity, but it’s also one of the brightest and most pixel dense displays out there. What’s more, it’s the first smartphone in the world to deliver a full 60 frames-per-second (FPS) without any blurring. This means no more lag or pixelated video and ghost images appearing as your screen moves. Thanks to an IPS type LCD display, which is given a higher voltage difference when changing states, you’ll enjoy a clean transition from frame to frame, even when operating at top speeds.
Integrated wireless charging
The Nokia Lumia 920 is the first integrated wireless charging smartphone, available worldwide, with the technology built right into the handset. Compatible with the Qi wireless standard, the Lumia 920 not only uses a wide selection of Nokia wireless charging accessories, but can be charged anywhere using Qi, such as the Virgin Atlantic lounge in London’s Heathrow airport.
All of these things make me feel good that i made my own decision to go with a phone thats truely innovative and not just the popular phone.

That I can put on gloves and use the phone is quite remarkable actually to me.

I loved the Palm Pre. Then HP had to drop a deuce on the Palm legacy and kill off webOS and any hope of having a Pre 3, 4, 5...
The Lumia 920 is a fantastic device, but it has had its fair share of issues. I think some of them are overplayed, some are legitimate and others are just the result of people unfamiliar with Windows Phone.The views expressed in the proceeding post are my own and not affiliated with those of my employers past, present and future.

I find the most precise way is to use my keys as a stylus.

Two experiences I've had with super-sensitive touch screen on 920:
1. When using something besides my finger, it helps to hold it against the screen for about 3 seconds before I try to make any input. It seems that the screen is able to recalibrate for the non-finger input.
2. In cold temperature (below 30 Fahrenheit) I haven't been able to get any non-finger input to work at all. Kind of defeats the purpose for me. Fortunately, I have some of these gloves that seem to work on any touch screen at any temperature.

To be fair...
Super sensitive touch - Actually, Sony kinda beat them to it with their Xperia floating touch technology. And guess what, it works with gloves:
60 FPS HD display refresh rate - Nothing new, iOS had this for years, even Android is getting there now.
Integrated wireless charging - Also nothing new.
