Nokia Lumia 920 review: Windows Phone 8 and (a little bit of) camera magic

It's Nokia's greatest Windows Phone yet. The Lumia 920 packs a superb screen with great visibility and sensitivity, but the camera gives a mixed performance.

Pros
  • Rich display
  • Smooth video capture
  • Best-in-class low-light camera performance
Cons
  • Some softness in photos
  • Device feels unwieldy
  • App selection still lacking
  • Sluggish refresh on social networks
