If you’re lucky enough to own a Nokia Lumia 920, you’ll remember the feeling of childlike glee when you slid open the box and unwrapped the sleek slab of smartphone awesomeness. Regardless of whether you’re a skateboarder in the Bronx, a film maker in Manchester or a hairdresser in Helsinki, that’s a special moment we all shared. But what else do Nokia Lumia 920 lovers have in common? We conducted a very unscientific survey to find out.
We dare to be different
We’re incredibly lucky to live in a time of amazing technological innovation. This is especially true when it comes to smartphones. Yet for all the advances, some smartphones seem, well, let’s be honest, a little dull. Whether it’s staid design or an OS that looks the same as it did five years ago, for Nokia Lumia 920 lovers predictable equals boring. We want to be dazzled. We want to be wowed. We want Lumia lushness.
We want the easy life
Gartner predicts that in 2013 a staggering 1.2 billion tablets and smartphones will be sold. This year we bought an estimated 821 million of these devices. Add to that PCs, laptops and game consoles and our lives are more connected on more devices that at any time in history. The Nokia Lumia 920 is part of a unique ecosystem of devices, from the Xbox to Windows 8 laptops, which share the same software. Having one makes life much more fun and work so much easier.
We love living in the future
You don’t have to be a geek or a tech head to relish the magic of innovation. Charging your phone with a tap, beaming your photos onto a friend’s computer screen, enjoying blur free videos. All these ingenious ideas made real in both the Nokia Lumia 920’s hardware and Nokia apps give us a special insight into the wonders of tomorrow’s world.
We crave the creative
About 20 percent of all photos taken this year will end up on Facebook. Facebook’s library already has 140 billion photos, which is 10,000 times that of the Library of Congress and 4 percent of all the photos ever taken. The simple fact is we love taking and sharing great photos and video. Nokia Lumia 920 lovers love it more than most. And thanks to PureView technology, Carl Zeiss lens and Optical Image Stabilisation, we get to share the very best.
We enjoy being super sociable
With the amount of cool stuff we can do with our smartphones it’s easy to forget that their original purpose was to keep us connected. Nowadays, there’s are a bundle of ways to do that and, thanks to the People Hub, the Nokia Lumia 920 has them all nailed. What this means in practice is that being super sociable is easier then ever.
We get a kick out of music
Frank Zappa once said “Without music to decorate it, time is just a bunch of boring production deadlines or dates by which bills must be paid.” We might not be rocks gods, but most Nokia Lumia 920 lovers would probably agree with his wise words. Thanks to Nokia Music, we get the chance to listen to cool new tunes, whenever and wherever. And with Nokia Gear partnering with music pros like Monster for headsets and JBL for speakers, we get to listen to them in style.
We dig daring design
You only have to hold the Nokia Lumia 920 in your hand to know what great design feels like. The balance of form and function is something that is difficult to get right. Yet when they come together properly the result can be astounding. It’s no surprise then that the Nokia Lumia 920 has scooped up a ton of awards or that it’s so damn difficult to put down.
How do these characteristics sound to you? Do you recognize yourself or is there another trait you think us Nokia Lumia 920 lovers share? As ever, we’d love to hear your thoughts down below.
