It has an excellent rear 8.7 MP camera with a Carl Zeiss lens and backside illuminated sensor that excels at low light photography.

Throw in the fact that it has good viewing angles and a strong iridescent glow, it’s more than visible in outdoor conditions with the sun present.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Camera

Most other cameras simply discard info from the 4:3 sensor to make it produce a 16:9 photo and lose 25% of the resolution.
by GSM Arena (Dec, 2012)
What's hot: Fast, beautiful, excellent display, great camera.
by MobileTechReview (Nov, 2012)
Above all, we have to admit that we’re most impressed by its low lighting performance, which shows the advantage of its F2.0 lens and image stabilization.
by PhoneArena (Nov, 2012)

Screen

The new display tech automatically adjust the screen settings to fit the ambient light.
by GSM Arena (Sep, 2012)
The viewing angles are quite good too and while there's notable brightness loss when you go to extremes, everything on the screen remains legible.
by GSM Arena (Dec, 2012)
The extra width you get with the 4.5-inch display makes travel between keys slightly more comfortable and we found we made far fewer mistakes on the Lumia 920.
by TechRadar (Nov, 2012)

Apps

You can load your own music from your iTunes library on Mac and Windows machines via the included USB cable, or mount the smartphone as a mass storage drive in Windows and drag and drop music, videos and documents onto the phone.
by MobileTechReview (Nov, 2012)
Typography is key and fonts look sharp and finely tuned, and the side-swiping UI in apps is fun and easy to use.
by MobileTechReview (Nov, 2012)
Games hub is where you'll find downloaded games (some XBOX branded and various not branded).
by MobileTechReview (Nov, 2012)

Carrier

Software: Being the AT&T smartphone it is, we’re naturally exposed to the carrier’s usual set of apps, which include AT&T Code Scanner, AT&T FamilyMap, AT&T Navigator, AT&T Radio, AT&T U-verse Live TV, and myAT&T. As we mentioned earlier in the review, the Lumia 920 features Nokia’s “pure experience” apps that consists of Nokia City Lens, Nokia Drive, Nokia Maps, and Nokia Music.
by PhoneArena (Nov, 2012)
Amazon is currently offering the 32GB smartphone for $20 with a two-year AT&T contract, while the 16GB iPhone is going for $200 ($300 for the 32GB version) on contract, but is available at three of the major carriers.
by GSM Arena (Dec, 2012)
In the US AT&T is the exclusive carrier, offering the Lumia 920 for £149.99 upfront on a two year contract, while SIM-only prices are expected to settle around the $600 mark.
by TechRadar (Nov, 2012)

Video

At 4.5" and with an appropriately higher resolution, the Lumia 920 screen is far better suited to video watching and gaming (the number of game titles in the stores is a different story altogether) than the 4" unit of the latest Apple smartphone.
by GSM Arena (Dec, 2012)
The 4.5-inch display is also a good'un, crisp and clear it makes watching movies, surfing the web or Facebook stalking an enjoyable experience.
by TechRadar (Nov, 2012)
This is definitely a nice camera to shoot with and it's good enough for print photos and YouTube video uploads.
