The Lumia 800 was Nokia’s first Windows Phone and even though they released the form factor with the N9 running MeeGo, it was still a major statement in the handset world. The Nokia Lumia 920 sports the same styling as the Nokia Lumia 800. It has the same smooth and rounded polycarbonate chassis and curved screen. The biggest difference is that the exterior is now glossy and it has gotten bigger in terms of size.
The Lumia 800 was a 3.7 inch device whereas the 920 has gotten a significant bump up to 4.5in.
If you’ve already got a Lumia 800 or 900 then you’ll notice in the video that from a usability stand point that things are very familiar as the button layout has not changed and is the same as the Lumia 800. If you checkout the side the power button is mounted in the same place so it’s easy to unlock the phone. Since the 920 comes with the latest PureView camera it’s great that there is a dedicated button that lets you jump straight into that app, even if the phone is locked.
We show off the basic form factor and get into a few of the differences in Windows 7.5 and Windows 8. I pop back on to the Lumia 800 every few months, the screen is way to small to keep me using it for more then a week or so, but the form factor is solid and the idea of the PureView camera might keep me interested. Now the big question is how is Windows 8?
