Always On: Unboxing the Nokia Lumia 920

4:25 /

Molly Wood unboxes the latest Nokia smartphone, the Lumia 920. It features a 4.5-inch screen, 1,280x768-pixel-resolution display, and is running Microsoft's latest Windows 8 OS.

-At long last, it is time to unbox the Nokia Lumia 920. Previously, the flagship Windows phone until the HTC 8X came out, but this guy is still from what I hear a very good phone and a good value at 99 bucks with contract. We had to have Microsoft FedEx us once, so we don't have like a box, but should there's some kind of box in here. Oh boy. I've been looking forward to this phone actually. Yeah. All right. I wonder what color we got. I'm not gonna cheat. I'm just gonna open it and see. Oh, we got black [unk]. Guys, this is a giant brick of a phone. It is so heavy. I cannot believe it. Wow, alright, but before we end, look, texting and driving, it can wait. I'm all over this campaign of AT&Ts. Let's say what else we have on the box. Oh, look, I like this. They are actually telling me that it's the same door key with a little sign and it's Nokia branded. See what else we have down here. We have-- Oh, it looks like we have our own NFC tag. Also nice with a little explainer about what NFC is. They're trying to make this beginner friendly, which I think is actually quite smart. We have a pretty good how to on program here on NFC tags from Always On with Sharon Vaknin. You wanna check that out. We have our product and safety information here, our power brick, which is actually kind of big, although not that surprising since the phone itself is kind of big, very short little charging cable and that will do it for the box. Let's have a look at this phone. Now, I've heard that this phone is pretty big, but dudes it's so fat and beefy, and once again, continuing our beginner friendly theme, we've got stickers all over the back telling us what the various ports are and the various buttons. I can say I am kind of loving this. I was loving it until I thought it was like a real sticker. You stick it. Got that camera front and center. It's a pretty highly touted camera, 8.7 megapixels with the Carl Zeiss lens and I kind of like the orientation of the camera right here. It says, "You can get right to taking pictures. I'm gonna turn it on, go through some set up here. While we wait for it to come on, let's some specs. The Nokia Lumia 920 has 4.5-inch LCD display with a 1280 x 768 pixel resolution. That is full HD. I don't usually talk about the size and weight of a phone, but in this case, I think it's relevant to know that it weighs 6.5 ounces. It's a little bit of a brick. It's powered by 1.5 gigahertz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor with just 1 gig of on board RAM. It's totally fast, but not blazing fast. The screen is covered in gorilla glass that company says it's scratch resistant. It does support 4G LTE and of course it runs Windows Phone OS 8. The camera is 8.7 megapixels. It has a Carl Zeiss lens and a flash and I can record 1080p video. It's an impressive camera although some of our reviewers found that the photos are not as good as you might expect. There's a 1-mepixel front facing camera, which is find a little disappointing. It terms of connectors, you have micro USB for charging and data and a 3.5-mm universal audio connector. There's also micro USB 2.0 on board. Unfortunately, no HDMI support. The battery is somewhat wimpy at 200 mAh. Now, Nokia says that will give you 9 hours of talk time, but our testing has found quite a bit less than that. You don't have to live in the cloud with this phone. There are 32 gigs of onboard storage and it starts with just $99 with a new contract and is only 449 unlocked. The Nokia Lumia 920 is a pretty serious phone. It is big. It is beefy. It's got that specs to back it up though and at $99. I actually think this is a great way to get into the Windows mobile operating system. It's pretty fun to use.
