The Verge’s review of Lumia 920. Overall score 7.9/10 and gets 9 for Display and Performance.

Time for Lumia 920 reviews to pour in. First up is The Verge’s review. They have given a final score of 7.9/10 to Lumia 920 and considering the fact that they have rated Ecosystem abysmally low to 5, it is a respectable score. Lumia 920 fetches 8 for Design, 9 for Display, 8 for both the cameras and 9 for performance so clearly the lowering of overall score has something to do with 5 for Ecosystem. Though this is much harsh to only consider only no. of applications as a measure of Ecosystem when out of huge number of iOS and Android apps, most of them are never downloaded. Also the too heavy and bulky rant is out of our understanding as it hardly some 30-40 gms than other Flagships and feels much solid and premium due to that. Also, for that weight you get many innovations available only on Lumia 920.

Anyways they conclude their review like this,

The Lumia 920’s hardware and design is top-notch, the screen is lovely, and the camera is a marvel in low light — but you can’t ignore just how big and bulky the phone is. The software and hardware tradeoffs inherent in the Lumia 920 could be worth it if you’ve bought into the Microsoft ecosystem, but for most people I don’t think it’s a sure bet.

Great to see Lumia 920 getting praised from harshest of the Nokia phone critics :).

    Most of the mainstream tech media is part of groups the work for hedge funds. Right now they want you in iPhones and Androids so they can harvest your info. Black gold as they call it. I’m going Nokia. When you know those websites are fake, have fun with them in the comment sections.

    Well if they gave iPhone 5 a 10 for ecosystem then for any WP8 phone they should give a maximum of 3 considering the apps proportion.

  4. camera better than apple still same points
    screen better than apple still same points
    ecosystem …. meh what about the nokia exclusive apps. it should get atleast +1 point over htc 8x.

    Seems to me they deliberately wanted the score to be less than 8!!

    Totally agree with you with respect to the app catalogue, I for one use probably 10 apps a day maximum, I do not need 100,000s of apps. The reviewer also conveniently forgot to mention the super sensitive display too, that lets you use the device whilst wearing gloves, that’s a big step in screen technology, especially with winter coming 😉

  6. the whole OS just needs apps. big names and breakthrough experiences. that is it really

      Too true. It was the same for the Palm Pre, in my opinion the best phone OS around at the time, similar to the Blackberry playbook………….it just needed apps. I do not understand these companies like Microsoft all they have to do is pay big bucks in the beginning to buy apps for the major applications normal users want, Skygo, slingplayer, Gtalk, google+ etc etc get them ready BEFORE they launch a new phone and then viola on launch day the techie folk are happy with a snappy, clever phone and the needy app folks have their familiar apps from the start.

      If Microsoft, Google, Blackberry and Nokia etc do not learn this basic concept they will never beat the mighty Isheep grip it has on the public, its sad but true.
