The Nokia Lumia 920 offers a rather simplified photographic experience by compact camera standards, but it does take good pictures in daylight and even better ones in low-light conditions thanks to the effective built-in image stabilization system, where most rival smartphones struggle to deliver remotely usable results. It may not feature all of the latest bells and whistles, but the Lumia 920 definitely lives up to its PureView branding.

The phone’s design is also very nice but then it’s a very heavy handset and all but the black model have slippery, fingerprint-attracting shiny finishes. And, extras like wireless charging and NFC are great but then there’s no memory card slot and you can’t swap out the battery. Meanwhile Windows Phone 8 is mostly very nice but lacks apps.

Overall, the Lumia 920 is a great piece of hardware, and one of the best Windows Phone 8 devices you can buy, but does come with a few downsides, mostly related to the infancy of Microsoft's operating system. Still, if you're willing to try something new, you can't go wrong with the Lumia.

Many of the frustrations we used to have in Windows Phone are now gone with this latest version, and Nokia has given the OS a very good stage with the Lumia 920. The speed and multitasking improvements, connections to Xbox and SkyDrive, and Start Screen experience are all much better, but there’s still a critical lack of apps and they too often feel as though they’re not as good as what’s on other platforms.

We had high hopes for the 920, and while individual elements are great, we have come away bitterly disappointed with the overall package.
