The Daily Mail were probably never a big fan of iPhone hipsters, so it is not unexpected that they like the anti-iPhone.
They do however have some substance to their opinion, noting the Nokia Lumia 920 camera â€œeffortlessly out-cools Apple and Samsung’s with better shooting modes and warmer coloursâ€ and instead of being hung up by the weight called the device a â€œlovable giantâ€ that was like â€œone of those huge four-door estates you see rumbling through posh suburbs, crushing Smart Cars beneath their wheels like a main battle tank.â€ Its not hard to imagine which device the Smart Car metaphor represents.
Calling the user interface correctly â€œa welcome change from yet another dreary screen of app buttons â€“ a â€˜lookâ€™ thatâ€™s been going strong since the PalmPilot in the Ninetiesâ€ that was â€œfaster than either iPhone or Androidâ€, they noted with â€œa better camera than iPhone, a better screen (itâ€™s sharper, inch by inch, and the blacks are so crisp even reading books is goodâ€ the device deserved to be a smash hit, even amongst the iBores now that basically everyone else has an iPhone.
No matter how you feel about the Daily Mail, I am sure our readers will find the review resonate quite well.
