Top 5 Nokia Lumia 920 accessories
While the Lumia 920 is readily available in the UK, accessories have lagged behind. With the high profile launches of the iPad Mini and Nexus 4 to distract manufacturers, it’s still pretty hard to find a good set of accessories for the device.
That should be changing though. We should see accessories becoming available, both from Nokia and third parties, in the weeks leading up to Christmas. Post-Christmas, we should see even more third party accessories come to fore.
In this article, we’ll look at five of the best accessories that are on the market already or coming soon for the Nokia Lumia 920.
5. USB Mini Car Charger Adapter – 2100 mA
This car charger packs a lot of power into a small package – 2.1A in all, enough to charge anything from the Lumia 920 to a tablet like the iPad or Nexus 10. While normally I’d recommend a 1A car charger for a phone like the Lumia 920, given the low price and small size of this unit there’s no real reason not to pick this one up and gain that tablet compatibility anyway.
4. Nokia Lumia 920 Wireless Charging Plate
This wireless charging plate comes in a number of colours – cyan, black, white, red and yellow, allowing you to pick the one that matches your phone. The plate charges your phone wirelessly; just set your phone on the plate and it’ll get to work immediately. This option is cheaper than the Wireless Charging Stand we’ll see later, so if you’re not fussed about having your Nokia Lumia 920 charger at a jaunty angle then it’s a good way to save a bit.
3. Case-Mate Barely There
Case-Mate are one of the biggest names in the case business, and their Barely There line is one of their most popular. The idea is to add a moderate amount of protection with the absolute minimum of bulk, making for a case that will prevent damage from scratches and short drops without making the phone too large or thick to easily carry. Given the large size of the 920 already, you’ll definitely want to ensure that your case doesn’t add too much bulk and so the Barely There is perfect.
Note: The image used shows the Barely There for Nokia Lumia 900, as a photo of the Lumia 920 version wasn’t available. Generally Case-Mate’s cases have similar characteristics between phones and this is indeed indicated by the Barely There’s product description for the 920 version, so there should be few differences besides fitting a larger phone.
2. MFX Screen Protector
Screen protectors are always an important addition to a new phone, preventing damage to the screen due to scratching or chipping. While for most products it’s best to trust the big names, screen protectors are fairly simple and if you just want the most basic functionality – a perfectly sized sticky piece of plastic – then MFX are well up to the task.
1. Nokia Lumia 920 Wireless Charging Stand
This wireless charging stand is quite special, allowing wireless charging through its charging plate and keeping your phone at a useful angle. The stand also includes an NFC chip, which can be used to activate pre-specified applications. So if you have your stand on your bedside table and you always launch the alarm clock app before you go to sleep, you can set this up via NFC once and then have it always launch when it’s put into place.
So there you have it – some of the best Nokia Lumia 920 accessories available. As I mentioned in the introduction, there aren’t too many third party options available at the moment, but we should see the number increase before and after Christmas – keep checking your favourite mobile phone accessories retailers!
