Signed up here just for you. :P
Can you pin a website to start and see if all three tile sizes are available? Assuming that the smallest size works: Does it just display the IE symbol or does it shrink down the screenshot as required? (Crossing my fingers that it does!)
Thanks in advance!

GSM arena clearly states under:
USB Yes, microUSB v2.0, USB On-the-go support
Nokia Lumia 920 - Full phone specifications
If that is not true I must say I sure hope it is just a question of time for it to be released on WP8 update so one can down and upload files to a USB-stick via a cable for example.
USB OTG is da **** :D

2. When I manually selected the correct white balance as you can see in other videos i have added after the first driving one, the color shift disappeared and the video was much much better.
3. [Can't promise you I will. Not a lot of time on my hand these days.]
4. No other 3rd party video camera in the Store.
5. That only happened in that occasion. Other videos I have are perfectly fine with the focus.
6. The regular photo editing apps are available in the Store such as Fotoroom and others. Haven't used them yet.
7a. Of course.
b. Proximity sensor does a good job dimming/shining the screen based on light and proximity. When you leave the phone for some seconds and before the lockscreen timing, the phone dims to save battery. As soon as you touch it again, it goes back to bright.
8. No but there are shortcut tiles you can pin to the start screen that give you quick access to these settings.
11. No. Sound only.
You don't ask a lot of questions do you?! :D

The colours shifts really badly when going from tree (brown-ish) - clearing (yellow-green-ish) - house (green-blue-ish) - street (correct colours) and then back to start the same thing os observed.
Obviously there is some problem with the auto selection of white balance. Nothing that I think Nokia wont fix in future updates though. They allready mentioned the fix with the sharpness (hopefully with manual controls in next FW)
The GS3 stays fully lit up as long as the front camera (i am guessing) sees that you are looking at the screen. Really nifty function :) Hope that an app will come for that :)
Thanks a HUGE bunch for all the replies :excl:

I can try and do a more thorough comparison in different settings when I get home.
EDIT: Forgot to mention, the settings used in the video are as follows:
White Balance: Auto
Continuous Focus: On

Thanks a lot for those videos - the shows everything I needed to know.
1. Nokia uses the full sensor both for 1080p and 720p (but scale the latter down).
This is a much better way to do it that for exampl my Galaxy S2 which in 1080 mode has a very narrow viewing angle but for 720p has a very wide viewing angle (it seems as though they use the centre of the chip for 720p and somehow fits more info in the picture that way - dont ask me how but it is annoying to have different viewing angles for different resoltions)
2. There is slightly more detail in the 1080p at full screen. Its mostly visible when camera is not panning for example at PC screen text where you can read some of the small font words in 1080p and the cardboard box umbrella label far away is obiously better defined. As soon as panning starts it is very hard to see differences due to motion blur but 1080p seems a bit sharper when panning over the slate - the large "Start" text in the upper left corner seems less blurry but that could be related to different panning speed.
3. The White balance is once again an issue. White balance is correct shooting towards cupboard and white board but as soon as PC-light (60Hz?) comes into the picure it gets very "brownish". This is certainly something that Nokia needs to address quickly since it is a lot worse than not having razor sharp pictures. This is extremely obvious whereas the image issue is only seen side by side with other photos and that only happens at reviews ;)
I humbly thank you for your sharing :excl:

Thanks for giving so much time and effort.
Only one thing i want to know is WHATSAPP performance on lumia 920.
The most used app now a days. So i want that is it same as iphone or slow ?
Could u please post a video of full whatsapp ?? So many folks asking about this on various forums.
But still no video of whatsapp on WP8.

I found the following issues with my Lumia 920:
-Although the camera took better than average low light pictures, pictures taken in brightly lit situations were often softer than on my Galaxy S3 or iPhone 5,
-Batter life was horrendous, especially when taking pictures. At most I got 6-7 hours of battery life where I would get 12-15 on my other phones with similar use
-Although it mostly felt solid, the top section of the phone was apparently hollow as i could push gently on the spot next to the sim slot and it would bend down easily making a clicking sound (only noticed when I pulled it out of my car mount.
Sadly the battery life was the deal breaker...I had to sell it right away. I can confirm the Rogers model I had was factory unlocked (tested with Bell sim card)
I've included some of the pictures I took from my Skydrive if anyone is interested :)

Just wanted to specifically thank Xsever for all the hard work and hassle he's put up with us over this past week. I can honestly say that your reviews and pictures and direct help has made a big difference on which phone I went for. Thanks!
