Nokia's Lumia 920 is coming out this November exclusively on AT&T. It has a number of features that sets it apart from the pack, but naysayers will tell you that these features don't make much of a difference going up against the might of the iPhone 5 or Samsung Galaxy S III. Well, can you play Angry Birds with a banana on those phones?

Nokia's Facebook page touted the impressive touch screen on the company's Lumia line of smartphones. They even claimed that one could play Angry Birds with a banana due to the extreme sensitivity of the screen. Such a feat would be pretty hard on other smartphones.

The Lumia’s screen is so sensitive that you can play Angry Birds with….a banana. True story. http://nokia.ly/VyPI7L

Who are we to doubt Nokia's claims? The folks at Advices Media thought somebody might, and set out to find out if a banana could actually be used.

As it turns out, a banana is a perfectly suitable replacement for your finger on the Lumia's screen. I don't know really know why you would want to play a game with a banana, but it's something that the competitors don't have just yet. Apple will surely announce banana controllers for the iPhone 6 in response.
