    Totally different kind of devices for me. I dont even have to consider about getting a Lumia 920, but could "never" really consider a SG Note 2

    Well i will naturally say Lumia 920 because of Windows Phone OS.

    Both devices are so very different.

    I think you need to list out the key things you want to be able to do other than make calls and text, then see which phone do you think will help you to achieve those objectives in the best way?
    the question is too broad for us to help until you can define what you need your device to do..

    If you hate Samsung Wave II, you should select the Lumia 920 if the price is the same.

    Both are too big IMO but at least the Lumia 920 is manageable and runs WP8. So the Lumia 920 gets my vote.

    The Note 2 does have some sick features.

    The pen feature might look attractive, but trust me, its beyond useless.

    I had xperia neo earlier, so I knew much about android already. I have used the original note (not much different than note 2 in usage) for about an hour, and here's the deal:

    1. There was no writing recognition. (I was like ?!?!?!)

    2. The pen was jibbery. I could never think myself comfortably writing a note on that phone (same for placing the phone next to my ear)

    3. The screen, even being over 5in, seemed useless for photo editing using pen (unlike their ads). I'd much rather prefer it on a tablet.

    So eventually, while trying to be a phablet, its a bad tablet and a bad phone.

    I prefer drawing a line between phone and tablet/laptop than phone/tablet and laptop. Tablets should be more productive than they already are, matching laptops in regards to functionality.

    iOS has same store for iPhone and iPad (same apps with different scaling) (android is similar to iOS for this) while there's mac store for MAC's apps. Windows has its Win Store for Laptop/Tablet while Win Pho store for phones. So I'd much rather prefer windows.

    I still can't picture someone making a call with the note 2. Those people would need a Bluetooth device to look normal in public. Not to mention that you need to carry it in a bag.

    No brainer there... The Lumia 920, of course. Why would you want that malware-infested mini-tablet?

    I don't understand why mobile manufacturers skin the android OS. So happy Microsoft doesn't let them do that.

    If you are handy in the workshop, do what I do before I get a new phone. Go cut out a piece of 3/8" (usually 11/32" actually) or 1/2" (15/32") plywood to the dimensions of your phone candidates. Round the edges as required. Now you can hold it, pocket it, put it to your ear. Basically get a feel for the phone. I usually do it to check if any of my existing cases will work.

    I don't either it just make everything lag like crazy I know you can custom ROM the device but i'm not to keen to mess around with such things and it destroys the warranty. :dry

    That one of the main reasons am going for Microsoft OS same throughout every device no changes, no crappy overlay specially touchwiz which hopefully will go to **** and burn in flames. :lol:

    I cant wait for the L920 I'm so excited I JUST CANT HIDE IT COME ON COME COME ON COME ON COME ON COME ON wait that two songs oh yeah Will Young come on come on come on. :D

    oh mate. Windows phone never lags one bit. I had my phone (Nokia Lumia 800) for almost one year. and it never lagged or forced restart. literally not even once. This is why Wp8 and Wp7 is very optimised on specs. it can even run smoothly on a 800mhz processor (Nokia Lumia 610). with the dual core processor on Lumia 920. you'll be very happy. no doubt about with the features like Pureview and Sensitive screen
