Lumia 920 Vs 900 And Verizon

Recommended Posts

I have a Lumia 900 that I use just as a wifi device. I got it off of craigslist in order to learn more about it. I am considering moving to a Windows 8 Phone on Verizon but I know they are not going to get the 920. A couple of discussion points here.

 

I wonder if Verizon will get a 920 similiar device or not. Also, I've never popped the SIM cover on my VZW iPhone 4s. I would like to be able to change phones on a whim by swapping SIM cards. My understanding is this is only possible on AT&T.

 

Lastly, I'm looking forward to the Windows Phone update that makes the 900 look more like 8. Update 7.8 is it?

Just a rumor, but there's a report of a Lumia 922 for Verizon in November which would be a modified 920. I'm hoping for things to get sorted out by the new year when I'm up for renewal so I have some choices.

 

Not sure on sim swapping, When I had my Verizon iPhone swapped (warranty) they swapped sims (old phone to replacement) and I still had to do the online activation.

I doubt that Verizon with get a Lumia 9xx derivative. I am leaning towards them getting a 8xx derivative though. Which, the Lumia 820 is not a bad phone at all.

      I just received an unlocked Nokia Lumia 925 from Expansys-USA.com. They had the grey model in stock and that is what I received. I have a black Wireless Charging Plate on order as well (uue in a week or so).
       
      The Lumia 925 is an extremely well built device. It feels dense and slightly hefty (compared to the Samsung Ativ S it is replacing). However, it is feels far lighter than 920 when held in the hand.
      The aluminum band is excellent quality, and looks like it will hold up well after usage. The backing is a soft touch polycarbonate that is thin but feels sturdy. The AMOLED screen is amazing, and comes with an setting panel that allows tweaking of both colors and contrast. I am leaving it set to the default "Enhanced" colors as opposed to "Native" or "Vivid". Auto brightness works better than any previous device I have owned. The setting to enhance daylight operation seems to really help in direct sunlight. The speaker is in the rear but sometimes feels as if sound is coming from under the display. There is an equalizer with various settings and well as the option to apply and save a customized sound. Dolby Headphones is an option that can be turned on/off. I am using it on AT&T (4G speeds only, as my work provision SIM is not on an LTE plan). Speeds and signal strength are reported lower than expected. But I have not seen a real world impact. Wi-Fi support 5GHz and seems to be very solid in both reporting strength and actual usage. The Glance features is very nice and allows the device to display the time (and some minor information like sound profile and low battery indicators) when the screen is locked. It has some options: The time can display only for 15-minutes. Then it will disappear. It knows when it is in your pocket or in a bag and turns off the display completely, yet the time returns when you remove it from you pocket/bag. It can be set to always be on, but could affect battery life. Having an AMOLED screen should keep that from being a big issue. There are settings for night mode. Set a time to be considered "night" and the clock and other text shows pale red instead of pale white. Very cool. No software updates were needed when I got the device. Only some app updates from the Windows Store. Nokia software mainly. Nokia apps complement the phone and Windows Phone 8 nicely. The Nokia Smart Camera app is there and allows everything the 1020 can do, except those fancy manual controls. The low light performance blows me away. The 6th lens improves everything about the camera. Outside of the 1020, this is the best camera on the market, along with the 925 which adds a Xeon flash (this has a dual LED). 12GB were available of the 16GB onboard storage. After setting up my apps and podcasts, but no local music storage, I was left with 10GB+. More to come! I used the device until the battery died and will let it charge overnight. Thursday 07/25 will be my first full day of usage of the battery. It'll take me a few days to get an idea of true battery life under my usage conditions.

      My review went live today. I'm starting this forum post for Q&A, followup and other discussion.  Please let me know if you have any questions about the device.
       
      Pros
      Amazing display that is well suited for multiple content types Great speakers that truly set the device apart LTE is built right in Overal design  
      Cons
       
      It could be lighter, but only since the iPad Air started shipping is weight a thing with larger tablets The screen's backlight bleed can be annoying to some, apparently some of these devices have it better or worse than others Windows RT - I believe the platform won't gain enough traction and a Bay Trail Atom running full x86 Windows would have helped this product succeed  
      I will continue testing the device and will update the forums with thoughts as I go along.

      I am currently waiting on my new Lumia 920 to arrive in the mail from AT&T.
       
      As exciting as that is, let me present my question.
       
      I've had an HTC Evo 4g (PC36100) for the past two years, and one thing I've loved about it is the ability to hook it up to my tv via HDMI.
       
      I know that the 920 has DLNA instead of HDMI, and I am actually considering buying a new tv for christmas.
       
      Which brings me to the topic of my rant [slash] my question:
      Why is it so hard to find a tv (or, preferably, a projector - I know, I'm weird) that is DLNA-certified?
       
      Retailers and manufacturers just don't list "DLNA-certified" as a feature of their products! WHYYYYYYYYY?!
       
      Is there some date that I'm not aware has passed, after which all tvs (and projectors?) are required to be DLNA-certified?
       
      Please, help me find a new tv or projector that I can connect my 920 to, so I can get my NetFlix on.

      It appears that Best Buy underestimated the demand for the Lumia 920. http://www.wpcentral.com/att-nokia-lumia-920-preorders-sell-out-online
