If you’re wanting to purchase a new mobile phone but aren’t keen on getting an iPhone or one of the many Android handsets available then a Nokia Lumia might be the right choice. There is a selection of Nokia Lumia models available to choose from with varying specifications, but all using the Windows Phone 8 operating system.
Although not the latest in the range the Nokia Lumia 820 remains a popular choice with people seeking a smartphone with impressive features. It has a 4.3-inch display with a 480 x 800 pixel resolution and also boasts:
- 8GB internal memory (expandable to 32GB using MicroSD slot)
- An 8 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens
- 4G connectivity for superfast browsing
- Dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 1.5 GHz processor
In addition to this, it also offers wireless charging with use of an accessory cover, 4G UK coverage and changeable covers to allow you to reflect your mood.
As the most up-to-date handset currently available the 920 offers some additional features that 820 users will not have available to them. These include a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera (ideal for making video calls) and 32GB storage space. It also boasts a slightly larger 4.5-inch screen with a 760 x 1280 pixel resolution. Achieving great videos should be a breeze too as it uses PureView technology and a Carl Zeiss lens to stabilise images even if there is poor light or a shaking camera.
The Lumia 920 also excels in terms of power management, so you should find you’re able to go a little while between charges. It has a standby time of 460 hours, a talktime of as much as 18.6 hours and 74 hours of music playback.
The Lumia 925 is not yet on sale, but is already attracting a fair bit of attention. As the successor to the Lumia 920 what can you expect? Well again Nokia has highlighted the strengths of its 8.7-megapixel camera. This time around users will be able to increase their chances of a getting the perfect snap with its Smart Camera Change Faces feature. This, as the name suggests, allows people to combine facial expressions from a series of shots in to a single group photo. There is also a feature called Action Shot, allowing a sequence of movements to be included in the same image.
