    Yup! I was dead set on getting the 8x. Just assumed the 822 was inferior. Actually looked up the specs, saw that it had the same processor, battery, and ram, expandable memory, removeable battery and saw it was cheaper. Thought it was ugly but yeah in person its actually pretty sexy! Very happy with it.

    I'm liking what I hear. 450 off contract is reasonable as well.
    If you have a Best Buy credit card and Reward Zone like I do, you can take advantage of the reward zone coupons. Its nice to get something in the area of $40-$50 back...$400 off contract phone now :D

    What's taking up that extra space? I'm pretty sure it's Nokia Maps. Check it out in Nokia Drive+ (Settings --> Manage Maps). It has the USA map downloaded by default.

    I visited local VZW and played with the 822 (8x not available yet). I am in agreement with everyone that the 822 feels and looks a lot better than depicted on camera. It's really weird to see that. My only complaint is I wish the white one wasn't glossy. The black felt very nice in the hands. Display was very nice too for being inferior to HD. And it is or feels as light or just tad bit lighter than the Trophy in the hands. If the phone was $50, it would be a steal like the L920. At $100 though, still not happy with that price.

    Can anyone verify simultaneous voice and data w/ Verizon. Does thing mean you can talk & surf at the same time? I thought Verizon Wireless never supported this feat. due to frequency band limitations.

    BestBuy has it for $50. Walmart has it for free (and supposedly BestBuy is price-matching).

    Just tested and confirmed this works. I was able to borrow and talk on the phone at the same time. I'm on LTE (not wifi). Not sure if the LTE is what makes the difference.

    One thing bugs me and it is the button placement. On the GS3 the volume rocker is on the left and the power is on the right. On the 822 the Volume, power and camera are all on the right side. The volume is at the top and is where the power is on the GS3 so I keep reaching for the power and am hitting the volume. Very annoying but I imagine it will take a few days for my muscle memory to update.
    I just came from an iPhone and I keep hitting the windows button and then getting upset and wondering why it wont turn on. I just did it as I typed this. I then follow up by reaching for the top of the phone and wondering why the power button isn't there.

    Lol, changes are hard. I came from the Lumia 900 and keep trying to plug it into power from the top.

    I'm still finding the button placement awkward. It might be easier if I used the phone in my right hand, but I'm sure I'll get it down pretty soon. So far I've been quite impressed with the quality of this phone. WP8 is very nice and the Nokia apps are a great addition also. This phone makes me even more excited for the future of WP!
