Everybody knows what is Forbes and what it does. But has anyone noticed lately that it hates Nokia? yes, it seems like Forbes people don’t like Nokia and its products. Recently, in an article over Lumia 920 review, Jean-Baptiste Su, a Forbes Contributor wrote something very unusual about it.

While the whole Blogging and technology world is praising Nokia’s effort with Lumia 920, Jean-Baptiste Su is trying to make a mess of it. He believes Lumia 920 to be superbar Phone with too much weight and unusual design. Here’s a snippet of what he believes:

What was Nokia thinking in releasing such a subpar phone?

It has no chance to make a dent in the highly competitive smartphone market dominated by Samsung andApple, or even attract the ex-RIM crowd.

After almost 2-months of continuous testing, the Lumia 920 is probably one of the worst smartphone that I have tried lately.


  1. it’s bulky,

  2. heavy,

  3. overheats,

  4. has a short battery life,

  5. and a horrible camera.

Don’t worry, Jean-Baptiste Su has also made it clear that he believes those articles, written on Lumia 920’s side, are ridiculous and are written by those who either hate iPhone & android or love Microsoft’s OS too much.

According to him, Lumia 920 is simply dreadful. Despite the heavy weight and thickness, the phone’s short battery life is a mystery to him. The pureview camera, according to him, is slow at taking pictures and takes blurr photos. For him, iPhone takes better pictures than Lumia’s pureview camera.

Despite all the praise and the marketing around the Lumia PureView integrated camera, the results were a constant disappointment. The phone is slow at taking pictures that end up systematically a bit blur and is simply unusable under low light. In comparison, the iPhone 5 camera did a good job under the same conditions, which I’m sure is also the case with the Galaxy S3.

Here’s a single line about what he really liked in the phone…

At this point, the Lumia 920 was a non-starter. However, the phone had some features I really enjoyed, like its sturdiness – I accidentally dropped it from hip level on concrete which caused a little bend on the corner -, that I could use gloves to operate the touch screen – it was getting so cold in the Bay Area that I needed some! -, Nokia Maps and Drive and the Office applications.

Seems like the author has a bit of misconception or he had been given a dummy set to play with..The other possible reason behind this could be …aah you can think that…easy one.. Just think ‘why anyone will hate a phone with impressive specs?’ and post it in comments section.
