I have the white lumia 920. I looks great. Yes yellow is also a very great color. But when it comes to red, its not just right. I found it a bit more bright than expected. The red color in poster seems nice but in hand it feels like red lipstick. I was sure of getting the red one but ended up getting white. Anyways thats my look of it. Now I had been playing with it for the past two days and here are my comments,
Screen sensitivity is so great even the touch buttons are super responsive
Display is gorgeous. Blacks are reproduction is great
It took me less than 10 mins to configure my twitter, facebook, corporate mail, Yahoo, gmail and I had no trouble migrating from Galaxy s2 to 920. Believe me It just took 10 mins.
As its nokia you get the whole range of nokia apps such as weather drive, maps, music Which are great. Nokia music works great just type in the song name and almost 99% it has it and you can download in for free for another year. Just configure your nokia account.
This phone needs only IE. IE is more than enough to get through ever website with ease.
When it comes to camera, believe me picture in low light are really great. If you take a pic in pitch black it not gonna give you anything but provide you have a very little light the photo looks like its taken with a professional flash (actually flash is not used at all). No phone can do this and am sure of it. You need see to believe it.
The phone usage storage size is around 29GB out of which I can use 26 GB. I have downloaded like 200+ songs from Nokia Music it still uses just 500Mb of the storage.
Sunlight readablity is awesome just keep it in auto mode and you dnt have to worry about blocking the light with your hand to read under direct sunlight
Mix radio puts me to sleep in the night I dont know how it is able to come with such a song selection. It plays what I like.
The more we get addicted to nokia music the more we lose battery :(. I find battery usage is roughly 8-12 hours for heavy use. I mean constant downloads and screen usage. And if I keep the network open and use the phone moderately i got around 16 hours. With moderate network use we can get through a day easily
Watching a 2hour movie with 1080p resolution costed me 20% of charge.
Charging is quick 1.5 hours to get you from 5-80%
Am not going to talk about apps we all know that.
Google users might find the search results from bing pathetic so the hour glass button in the phone is of no use for me now.
So regarding the heat problem yes while using nokia drive with network is causing the phone to heat up. Constant 720p 3D rendering and network components is causing the device to heat up and its understandable. But I used it for 30 mins and it was hot but not as the users describe here. It was hot but acceptable hope we get some tweeks.
Frequent screen rotation. When you are using your phone lying in bed you are going to face problems with keyboard orentation and thats gonna irritate you as it doen't have rotaction lock yet Some applications like wikipedia app offers it but its purely dependent on app.
So watching movies, Blacks are so black that dark scenes become a problem to catch it You can correct it by setting the brightness high but i would love to have a brightness control add in the player.
Music seeking controls are not available in Nokia Music player. You have to go to Xbox music to seek it.
Some time the volume control doesn't work. I'll have to restart the phone to make it work again. Well I didn't have time to dig into the reason.
Camera is a magic but in low/moderate light i get red coloration again I'll have to dig into that too.
Phone speaker is not the best and headphone clarity is good depending on you Dolby setting in nokia music.
No DLNA app by default till now by nokia says it will make playto app ready by Q1 2013 fro lumia 920 :(.
Final say is is really awesome. It suprises me in every was like pulling random pics from FB to mix radio. Inspite of all the problems i face am actually glad that i made the switch from boring android to eventful lumia. Also now i can start using my S2 as a development platform and play with it as android will always be developers heaven ;) and use my lumia for all the normal day to day use.
