Using a hard substance called Zirconium, they are scratch and dirt resistant which guarantees the phone to look like it just came out of the box.

Shaky video and blurry photos are almost non-existent with the 920’s floating lens technology. This means that sudden movement while using the camera synchronizes perfectly with the lens for clear, crisp photos and steady video recordings.
