the 8X has a lot of pros over the 920 (as well as the 920 over the 8X)
Design - is very sleek. every review so far even states the 8X design is well ahead of the 920 BUT thats all really just opinion.
Audio - Even if you think Beats is over rated... the audio is still better.
Camera - Takes a nicer normal picture/day time picture, lightening fast picture taking due to the image chip inside (gets smoked in the dark and smoked by videos)
***another thing to note is technically the 8X is a little more powerful than the lumia 920... the 920's sensitive touch/screen tech uses more resources on the cpu and they both use the same cpu (as well as the 8X's image chip being use to process the camera function)
that all being said... they both has lots of pros over the other.

Secondly, the maps app on iOS6 really isn't that bad at all. I have an iP5 right now and I have never had any issues with it. A few people in certain parts of the world had issues with it and Apple publically apologized and because of that everybody assumed their maps app was junk. It has yet to fail me in anything I have wanted to use it for.
Yes, I have had Android, iPhones and WP phones.... crazy I know that I don't just fanboy with any particular brand or OS.

I'm not trying to scream about the 920 being fat and heavy, I've never held either device. But if the 8x feels better in my hand or pocket, that's the phone I'd get. If the 920s camera was as good as nokia made me believe, my choice would be different. Looking at it from the reviews, the form factor of the 8x (as long and awkward looking as it may be) is more comfortable than the 920. If Nokia's killer feature isn't very "killer", why opt for the phone that I won't like carrying around?
Can't wait to handle these two in person...

Wow, this nav thing could be a deal breaker for me as well, and just after I decided the 8X was for me due to the lackluster 920 camera and bloated form factor. Nokia Drive was supposed to be on all phones. Is Microsoft out of their freaking minds? Their new OS has no built-in hands-free nav now. That is simply unacceptable.
I wonder if HTC could be petitioned into offering Nokia Drive? Bing's nav is beyond awful. Not only do you have to tap on the screen, but the voice guidance spits out every name and highway number of the street you are looking for and it ends up a confusing mess.

Why would they waste their time developing their own when they have resources like this available, from Nokia, to all of the manufacturers?
Also, waiting on links to this "Enthusiast" instant upgrade program. Still haven't seen anything.

Also with the nav... People on these forums act like Nokia Drive is the ONLY option for navigation. Personally I know my way around and don't need / want nav unless I am in an area that is foreign to me which doesn't happen often. In which case... there are OTHER options.

Call me old school I guess - it just isn't a deal-breaker for me. Bing maps works fine for me.

Many people will prefer the 8X because they personally prefer the form factor. No argument from me.
I tend to dislike when someone takes something subjective, like form factor or sturdiness, and thinks that there is only one valid opinion.

I was REALLY looking forward to the Nokia 920 but now that all the reviews are coming out, the decision has become really difficult mainly because of the weight and the size. What does the Nokia really offer? A bigger screen (but the same resolution, I prefer the smaller screen actually), more touch sensitivity (doesn't matter to me really), Nokia exclusive apps, wireless charging and what was supposed to be an amazing camera. The last 3 items are still big pluses for me but I just don't know if it's worth the weight and size. It looks like the Nokia might be cheaper so I might end up getting it anyway if the weight is tolerable.
Also, I can't believe nobody has mentioned this yet...Cnet has put up a 8X vs 920 comparison
