Lumia 920

Here's an unusual tale but one which shows off one of the finest Windows Phone's ever made in about as much glory as it could be shown in. Saving a man's life.

The tale goes that an unfortunate gentleman in China, Mr. Geng Ming, fell victim of a wall collapsing. And his Lumia 920 came to his rescue.

We all know that the good ol' 920 is a bit of a brick. When the wall came down he instinctively held the phone up to his head which helped soften the blow of the actual bricks. While thankfully he survived, the phone took the brunt of it. Microsoft China saw what happened (and no doubts a PR opportunity) and replaced his destroyed phone with a new Lumia 640 XL. Which is nice.

Apparently in China, Microsoft has been accused of "cheaping out," for not handing over something like a Lumia 930. We're not commenting on that, because the important thing is that he's alive and well. And he still has a Windows Phone to use, a pretty good one at that.

If you've got any tales of incredible things your Lumia 920, or any other Lumia for that matter has done, be sure to share them with us in the comments below!
