Why the Nokia Lumia 920 is -still- a hot buy

Nokia Lumia 920

With the backlash against the current iOS 7 update and the stale market of Android smartphones, there is finally room for a new competitor in the smartphone market: The Nokia Lumias. The fresh design and OS offer users an alternative to the existing smartphones we've grown accustomed to in the last few years. If you've never considered buying a Windows 8 Phone, here are 5 reasons why you should get a Lumia 920 (latest Nokia's flagship until the Lumia 1020 was released).

1. It looks great

There's no denying that the Nokia Lumia range is a lot more pleasant to look at than their counterparts. The bold and bright colors both on the cover and in the interface are a fresh change from the muted color palettes of other phones.

The shape of the Nokia Lumia 920 is also incredibly sleek; the strong lines mesh the OS and phone into one coherent object. It seems like Windows 8 is a much more modern looking OS than the iOS and Android, who haven't kept up with recent recent trends of flat color design. The Nokia Lumia 920 makes a great first impression and is more likely to wow your friends and family.

2. It is something new

If you are bored of iOS or Android, it might be a good idea to give the Nokia Lumia 920 a try to experiment with Windows 8. While the services and apps you've grown use to, might not have an equivalent in Windows 8, it is a fresh breath of air to use something new and different.

It has been a while since anyone has truly made any innovations or pushed the boundaries in smartphone design and function. The Nokia Lumia 920 breaks the mould when it comes to conventional smartphone design decisions. The use of a new OS and new user interface could be the beginning of something new and exciting.

3. Ease of use

The Nokia Lumia 920 goes back to basics and makes things easier for the user. Smartphones have become increasingly advanced and complex, but the Lumia 920 has brought it back to simpler level. No more scrolling through sub-menus to reach hidden apps and settings, it is all there in front of you. Not to mention the Nokia Lumia 920 fits snuggly into your palm and feels pleasant on your hands to use.

4. Great camera and photo quality

The Nokia Lumia 920 is suited for photographers and people who love taking photos with their phone. The 8.7 megapixel camera also comes equipped with optical image-stabilization to achieve image quality that isn't possible on other camera phones. The optical image-stabilization eliminates blurring from camera movement resulting in clear and sharp photos. You can also record videos in full 720p or 1080p HD and there are tons of settings you can adjust for your camera.

5. Windows 8 OS

While the Windows 8 Phone OS is a relatively new system in the smartphone market, it is showing a lot of potential. The Windows app store has a strict criteria you must pass before you can post your app onto the store, meaning the apps are of higher quality. There are also services that take advantage of Windows 8 features such as integration with Windows Live for Games and Windows Office. The blending of mobile and desktop apps and features could lead to a new generation of smartphones.
