PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless If there's one thing I miss in the current smartphone industry, it's design. Honest to good, real design. We basically see one boring slab after another, void of any true identity, whether it's iPhone, Samsung, or any of the others. In this boring world of grey, black, and the occasional white, Nokia is the jester, coming up with its own unique designs and crazy colour selection. Today, the company unveiled the Lumia 920 and 820 to continue this trend.

Where is the WP8 phone with a hardware keyboard? Or a real pureview phone? This is the biggest let down from Nokia since not releasing the N950 to regular users and I hope for their sake they release more than these two phones before Christmas.


This is a real pureview phone. It just doesn't have the 41MP camera sensor. Choosing the 8MP sensor instead keeps the phone slimmer.

Have you seen the 8MP picture examples from the 808 PureView. Amazing!

I expect the 920 to be no different.

You can't fool the physics. Wider and longer aperture are nice but that will not make up for larger sensor.
I expect lumia photos to have an edge in low light portraits noise wise (compared to stock 8mp) but in the details department there's no comparison to 808 (and I guess even N8).
In mobile videos OIS is a very nice addition though. Nokia is still ahead of competition but it's far cry from the breakthrough 808 was.

The 808 is still in a league of its own, but at the Nokia event they snapped some pictures right in front of us and the results were absolutely stunning.

I'd say a leapfrog over anything but the 808 (never used an N8 so can't comment)
