Difference between Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820

Key difference: One of the first smartphones under the brand is the Nokia Lumia 920. The Nokia Lumia 920 was one of the first phones to be developed running on Windows Phone 8. It was launched in November 2012 as its flagship phone. The Nokia Lumia 820 was launched at the same time as a slightly cheaper alternative to the Nokia 920.

Nokia is a Finland-based multinational communications and information technology corporation. Nokia’s phones have been famously known as being simple and durable. In 2012, it was the world’s second largest mobile phone maker by unit sales, following Samsung. However, the sales of Nokia have been decreasing as more and more of the market shifts towards smartphones such as iPhones and Androids. In an attempt to offset their decreasing sales, Nokia tied up with Microsoft to release its own line of smartphones, the Nokia Lumia running on Windows Phone Operating Software.

Nokia Lumia 920 has a 4.5 inch display with a resolution of 768 x 1280 pixels. It is powered by a Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon Dual-core 1.5 GHz Krait and a 1 GB RAM. The phone has 8 GB internal memory and an external memory expandable up to 64 GB. It features an 8 MP primary camera with a resolution of 3264 x 2448 pixels. It also has a 1.3 MP front-facing secondary camera.

The phone is available in a variety of bright colors, such as black, gray, red, yellow, and white. The newest and most distinguishing feature of the Lumia 920 is that the phone is capable of wireless charging. However, the wireless charging mat is not included with the phone and has to be purchased separately.

The device has been criticized as being heavy and bulky. Another issue with the phone, in fact all the Windows phones, is that it comes with the Internet Explorer browser built-in, which can be quite lagging at times, and the phones do not support any other browsers. Furthermore, the collection of apps available on Windows is quite limited, especially as compared to the apps available for Android and Apple.
