Let's take a look at this new Windows smartphone. Despite the initial slow take-up of Windows smartphones by the general public - that's you and me folks - Nokia have been very excited about the new Nokia Lumia 920. So what's all the fuss about? Does it live up to the hype? Well those all-important first impressions are excellent. The colourful stand-out polycarbonate casing both looks and feels really solid, helped by a heavyweight feel and ceramic buttons on the side, together with a curved back which makes it a joy to hold. It is dominated by Nokia's new high contrast IPS display with a resolution of 1280 x 768 pixels which Nokia describe as "better than HD". 4G and wireless charging The phone is 4G LTE ready, has all the connectivity options that a top smartphone is expected to have these days including NFC, Wi-Fi, stereo Bluetooth, GPS and USB connectivity. However we particularly like the wireless charging feature.

Tapered screen We love the way the 4.5 inch screen tapers off at the edges, a novel touch which really works and the enhanced IPS screen which Nokia refer to as PureMotion HD+ certainly delivers a punch. Images are sharp and lifelike thanks to 332 PPI, even outdoors in bright sunlight thanks to the Windows 8 phone automatically boosting brightness contrast and colour. It is without doubt one of the best screens we have seen. Carl Zeiss lens Of course that screen wouldn't be any good without a decent camera. Luckily cameras are often a strong point of Nokia phones and the 8 megapixel autofocus offering here does not disappoint. It features an f/2.0 Carl Zeiss lens which is an absolute delight and really shows off the screens sharp crisp display beautifully. This is complemented by 1.2 megapixel front facing video calling camera. Powerful performance The Nokia Lumia 920 features the 1.5 GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 processor much loved by many manufacturers at the moment and it suits the Nokia Smartphone perfectly, offering zippy performance. The Nokia it ships with 32 GB of internal flash storage but this cannot be expanded as there is no memory card slot. We recommend that you check the memory size before purchase because it is rumoured that UK models will only be supplied with 16 GB. Windows Operating System One particular feature we think users will like with Windows phones is that the operating system is supplied exactly as Microsoft intended it to be, without any manufacturer bloatware included. Nokia do include a few apps of their own but these are easy to delete if you wish to do so. You may wish to retain Nokia maps however which is outstanding and complements the Nokia Drive SatNav system perfectly. 200,000+ applications Other included apps include Internet Explorer 10, Skype integration, Facebook and Twitter, Hotmail and Bing search which includes voice search. Microsoft's app store is limited compared to that of Android and iPhone's iOS but there is still more on offer than you will ever need - now approaching a quarter of a million in fact - and Nokia also complement this with their own high-quality selection of apps. All you have to ask yourself is just how many apps you think you will actually need! Our Summary We like this Windows phone, in fact the build quality, screen and camera are all seriously impressive. It will certainly win over many android and iPhone fans who will not be disappointed in any way with this excellent smartphone, and Windows fans will find it's an absolute delight. If you fancy a change put the Nokia Lumia 920 at the top of your list

    On the Nokia Lumia 1020, the 41MP primary camera allows you to capture not one but two photos at the same time. The first one is the full resolution image that can be stored in your device and the second one is the 5MP photo that you can share on social networks.

    The main feature of Lumia 1020 is 41MP camera and the features surrounding it.The Nokia Lumia 1020 is definitely the best smartphone for Windows Phone 8 consumers.

    / Although I think we might start to see a rise from MS/Windows I don’t think it will be a large enough mrkaet share for Android to worry about.With the death of Blackberry impending it is pretty much a race between Android and Apple with Windows trailing far behind.As with the troubles Android is having? They are working on the design, hopefully will get past the lawsuits with Oracle, and Apple will just layoff of Samsung with their frivolous Patent lawsuits.
