Test-Mobile.fr managed to get hold of the Lumia 920, Lumia 820 and compare them both to the iPhone 5. But instead of looking at design, speed, etc. the team decided to whip out a banana they brought along for lunch and test screen sensitivity on the two products. As expected, the Lumias clearly beat the iPhone 5 by a clear mile, but the banana test does work on the iPhone in certain parts, so we shouldn't rule the Apple device out completely.
When it came to the glove test (not many of us use bananas to control our smartphones, right?), the Lumias showed their strength while the iPhone barely got off the start line. No magic involved either as whoever was wearing the gloves was giving it a strong attempt on the iPhone near the end of the video, and we can see the handset bob about slightly on the surface due to the force used. Yet still no response.
So how do Nokia Lumias fare so well in the test? Sypnaptic's 'Super Sensitive Touch' technology .
The difference between conventional and Super Sensitive Touch
Nokia has packed both the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 full of innovative features and functionality. In the former, if it's not the jaw-dropping PureView results, it's the sensitivity or the PureMotion HD+ boosted display. If that wasn't enough, the Lumia 920 also sports wireless charging, two microphones and LTE. The powerhouse of Windows Phone will be taken to the streets for use in the 'Lumia Challenge' or 'Smoked by Windows Phone' marketing campaigns. If the Lumia 800 and Lumia 900 did so well in these challenges, just image how successful the Lumia 920 will be.
As for the Lumia 820, wireless charging is also present, along with a strong build, interchangeable covers and more. We've previously looked at the PureMotion HD+ technology that's implemented in the Lumia 920 (but not the Lumia 820), so be sure to check out our coverage on how the supported resolution compares with competition, as well as the ability to use the device in bright light.
