Nokia Lumia 920 admirably survives torture test

Remember those stories of those old Nokia phones that are so durable that you can even use them as a makeshift weapon to ward off attackers? Well here’s another seemingly tough and durable handset from Nokia, the upcoming Lumia 920, which survived after PhoneBuff performed a number of torture tests onto it. First is the customary drop tests from different heights which the Nokia Lumia 920 survived with just some predictable corner scruffs. No scratches nor cracks and the phone worked normally. Impressed? Using the same device, the guys from PhoneBuff went ahead and scratched, slashed and hammered the phone. A set of keys was used to scratch the front and back with minimal effects on the phone. Not satisfied, a big knife was used to slash all over the phone with only slash marks showing on the side. Finally, a mallet was used on the Lumia 920 to no effect and to top things off, the phone was used to hammer in a piece of nail onto a wood. The phone is still working a-ok! Now that’s impressive. The Nokia Lumia 920 is made of a glossy polycarbonate unibody, with buttons and the camera deco made of zirconium, and the curved Corning Gorilla Glass protecting its front. It will be really difficult to put scratches on this phone so a case is not required (like the old Nokia phones). Not only is the Nokia Lumia 920 tough based on these test videos, but it also packs a lot of cool features that would make this one of the phones to desire once it becomes available here. Here are a few features you can get out of the Nokia Lumia 920: PureMotion HD+ screen which is the fastest among smartphones. Nokia claims it’s also the brightest display around Steadiest camera thanks to floating lens technology High-power dual-LED flash for shooting from a distance in dark environments Wireless charging support Responsive screen via Synaptics ClearPad Series 3 technology which lets you use the touch screen...

Nokia Lumia 920 gets official, packs a lot of goodies

The Nokia Lumia 920 is now official as the Finnish company unveiled one of their first Windows Phone 8 device to the public during their recently-held Nokia World 2012. This new flagship phone will be packing a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 CPU (Krait) which is fairly comparable to quad-core chips such as NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 in some benchmark tests. RAM is at 1GB while internal storage is at 32GB with no room for a microSD. It will also have the same curved glass design as the Lumia 900 in front but a glossy finish on its back instead of the premium matte finish that we love from before. You’ll get a 4.5-inch PureMotion HD+ display which has a 1280 x 768 resolution and is 25% brighter than the best panels out in the market. It’s like their ClearBlack display on steroids. Nokia also demonstrated the screen’s “Super Sensitive Touch” which lets you play with it even when you’re wearing gloves. A very practical feature not found in capacitive touch screens. Nokia puts the PureView name on the 8-megapixel Carl Zeiss optics of the Lumia 920 even though it’s not the same as the Nokia PureView 808. It promises good hardware image stabilization and impressive low-light performance though from what the company calls “floating lens”. You’ll also get NFC support here, LTE connectivity, and Nokia’s largest battery ever (2000mAh) plus wireless charging via Qi technology and a number of wireless charging accessories that they also showcased.
