Reviews Word on the street

Nokia N9  vs Lumia 920 

It has an excellent rear 8.7 MP camera with a Carl Zeiss lens and backside illuminated sensor that excels at low light photography.
Lumia 920

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.
