The Nokia 920 simply feels like a quality product. You could run it over with a dump truck and it would come out unscathed. The design is outstanding. Well balanced and feels great in your hand. Nokia also built Wireless Charging into the device bringing this feature mainstream.
The display is gorgeous with more PPI (768) than the iPhone and SGIII. In addition, the refresh rate for the screen is a market leader as well. Creating no lag on the phone. Nokia has also brought the sensitivity to a new level allowing the screen to be used with gloves. The best in the business for displays.
The camera is also a market leader with Image Stabilization for Video that literally makes a mockery of it's competitors. The 920 takes low light pictures that are amazing and no other phone can match it. Daylight photos are excellent, but not out of the realm of it's competitors.
Reception is on par with competitors and I've had no issues. Performance is fantastic with no lag whatsoever. Snappy describes it.
Software is intuitive and simple to use. It's a refreshing OS that makes Apple and Android look dated. Music and Video Apps need improvement and more features.
Battery Life is on par with competitors. I've had no problem using it an entire day and into the night before recharging it.
Ecosystem. The Windows Apps store is lacking for Apps. However, many substitutes can be found for most applications. The exception being a few well known Apps that are missing, but should be coming. The Ecosystem other than Apps is fantastic for anyone who has utilized MS services. SkyDrive, MS Office, Sharepoint, Xbox Music, Nokia Music work fantastically well together.
This phone takes it one step past Google and two past the iPhone 5. Clear Winner.
