Black Lumia 920 being shown off on camera (video)

For those of you in love with Nokia's new devices, we bring you a pretty long video in which you can see the black Lumia 920 being man handled around a studio. The video pretty much describes everything we know about the Lumia 920 and demos its most popular features: NFC pairing, wireless charging, and the low light camera performance and image stabilization technology. Interestingly enough we can also see a few glimpses of the brand new OS, that Microsoft has been so secretive about.

Just in case you forgot Windows Phone 8 is set to be launched pretty soon, either at the very end of next month, coinciding with other Microsoft releases *cough Surface cough Windows 8*, or in early November. In either case, the OS and the new devices are expected to hit US carriers in early November, the same time they roll out in Europe.

It's quite a good rundown the only sad part being that it's not in English. Still, it should give those of you desperate for Lumia news, a few minutes of happiness.

So what do you think? Is it just me or is the yellow one a lot more sexy?

What a lot of people haven't considered is the effect on the readability with light colour themes.

If you stick with the OS colour theme that comes with the yellow phone you will find the writing very difficult to read in comparison to the colour themes. The most readable colour scheme is a dark background with white writing and the best combination according to motorway sign writers who studies this stuff for drivers who had to quickly absorb highway signs is white writing on a blue background.

I know you can change the colour theme but if you are wanting that Nokia complete device look I doubt it will look as effective e.g. Blue theme on a yellow phone.

I know this through personal experience with my magenta Lumia 800 and even with the difficulty I have kept the colour theme.

If you don't believe me go into a store and try and look at the detail of a calendar appointment (the white text) on a phone with a birght (e.g. yellow background) and then try a darker background.

As this is your money and you should be happy with the total user experience and I thought this might help avoid any disappointments.

You're right. White text on yellow tiles isn't going to be the easiest thing to read. This is obvious to me though because i'm a graphic designer, but you just have to look at images of the yellow 920 to see it anyway. It's the one thing that puts me off the yellow 920, because otherwise i'd get it.

So i might just go with black, even though it's boring. But atleast its matte black and not a cheap looking shiny surface like on the red and yellow.

You know the Lunia 920 is a heavy as a house brick right?

iPhone 4: 4.8 oz
iPhone 5: 3.95 oz
Lumia 920: 6.5 oz

House Brick: 6 lbs.

Remember, 8 oz is a half of a pound.

"Heavy as a house brick" is an extreme exaggeration. I can live with 1.16 ounces more than the iPhone 4.

Edit: Looks like the number for Lumia 920 is actually 6.5 oz. Still, doesn't change my mind...

This looks like a good option for the people who don't like the glossy finish on the coloured 920s but I still think I'll have to get the yellow one

I'm looking for the blue, black or red one; yellow is fun but maybe too shiny? I need to see the device in my hands to decide

My fav color is yellow so been stoked about yellow since day 1. I love my black lumia 900 but I want yellow
Yellow is indeed nice, i just wish it wasn't glossy - it's yellow and glossy ... doubly flashy.

I agree.. It reminds me of a yellow high end sports car, and I'm ready to take it for a spin.

Just think about readability (see my post in this thread)

i've been waiting forever to see it in black. i wanted it to be glossy like the other ones but its matte . i'm still going to get it though

I prefer the black over yellow, but what I'm really after is the grey one.

Don't be so harsh. I thought he did quite well for an Asian.
