There’s been plenty of new stuff to digest over the past couple of days, and now we want to cut through the buzzcrap and ask: “What the hell does that actually mean, dudeski?”
One new thingy is Nokia’s PureMotion HD+, as found on the Nokia Lumia 920. Thankfully, Nokia has scribbled a big article about it.
Said article appears over on Nokia Conversations, and Ian explains why PureMotion HD+ gives the Nokia Lumia 920 the “fastest, brightest, most-sensitive smartphone display with the highest pixel density in the industry.”
Firstly, it’s faster thanks to increased voltage difference when the display changes states. Ian points out that a lot of smartphones – while technically capable under the hood – have laggy screens.
PureMotion HD+ also introduces a “high-luminescence mode”, which utilises the Nokia Lumia 920’s ambient light sensor to improve contrast and brightness outdoors.
In terms of sensitivity, the Nokia Lumia 920’s PureMotion HD+ technology welcomes input from gloved hands. Perfect for criminals. (I jest (mostly))
Finally, we’ve got tons of pixels. With a PPI of 332, the Nokia Lumia 920 rates even higher than the 326 PPI iPhone 4S. Of course, there’s the ‘300 PPI threshold’ argument, blah blah blah.
In any case, PureMotion HD+ sounds good to us. Especially now that we know what it means, ahem.
