    Other personalization options? Like what?

    If you're talking about a wallpaper, don't bother. It'll just visually ruin your phone.

I bought the Lumia because it's the only LTE device available here for the launch of the new 4G network in December.

    For me, it's the most schizophrenic device I've ever seen:

    - great (even excellent) hardware
    - the best camera I've ever seen in a mobile phone
    - excellent screen.
    - heavy. I complained about this in other threads, but now I've gotten used to the weight and I actually like the heft.

    However:

    - I've been feeling like I'm wearing a straight-jacket ever since I started using WP8. What this OS does, it does well. However, it does VERY LITTLE. Except for moving colorful little blocks, I can't customize it whatsoever. I just fail to see what Microsoft mean by "personalization" in this context. Having the Whatsapp icon in the top right rather than in the bottom left corner isn't exactly my idea of a "personal" homescreen.

    I'm not one of those Android users who installs custom ROMs etc, but after installing 20 apps on the Lumia, the whole device is a mess. The homescreen is a mess, and don't even get me started on the apps list.

    So yes, I'll be selling mine, even though that means that I'll lose LTE functionality. I'll definitely check out WP8 again in a year or so - perhaps by then, Microsoft has found a way to organize apps on the OS and maybe they'll also have introduced a notification system and VPN by then.

    I know that this is going to strike a nerve with you guys - but I just don't see how Microsoft is going to gain market-share with the OS as it presents itself right now. I have the feeling that a year from now, Nokia will be gone (or will have been eaten by Samsung, HTC, or even Microsoft itself) and WP8 will still be at 0.5% market-share.
    It's at 4%, equal standing as blackberry.

I was willing to give up things when I switched from Android. I know the app market was not the same and I was OK. The music management on the phone sucked but I could live with it because I liked the phone. I could live without a removable battery or a notification light. What I can not live without is a good browser. IE is horrible!! If I can not have the apps I need then I need a good browser to compensate. While shopping at Best Buy today I jumped on the app for them which is junk. OK No problem, I will jump on their website. The IE on my phone is not capable of handling the navigation properly of the tabs on that site and I was unable to browse for the info I needed. I was willing to give up a lot for Windows phone but I am drawing the line. I love the phone but it is going back in the morning. I can not have a smartphone that is dumb!

    There must be something wrong with your phone because ie10 is great! Seriously

    I have no ideal what. There are really no settings to change in the software. I have to check a store demo to make sure because I really like the phone and found it disappointing that it was not working.

    I have had nothing but good experiences with mine. The battery life has been excellent so far and it is attracting a lot of attention, which is why I went with red.

    I love the feel of the device so far. The way it feels in my hand is much nicer than my old HTC Vivid. And the curved glass screen is just the best I've had from any smartphone.

    My friend that still uses an iPhone 4 and said he has no reason to get another phone spent 5 minutes with my 920 and was then looking up how much gazelle would give him for his iPhone.

    You have no idea what he is posting about or you wouldn't post such an ignorant remark. Enlighten yourself before you throw rocks...it's not like end users in large corporations can impact what enterprise byod email platform is deployed.

    Surely problems like this are down to bad website design/insufficient testing by the designer, not a fault of IE10? It's a bit unfair to judge a phone and OS on the fact that it has problems navigating one website!

    I think everyone have different opinion, that is the real case that everyone may make a decision or conclusion base on one incident. Nothing right or wrong :)

    I'm testing the black lumia 920 while waiting for my yellow one (I have to admit I love the black, and am questioning yellow after the color theme choices from nokia:
    My only complaints apart from the apps, which will eventually come now that windows 8 has arrived:

    1. THE COLOR THEMES!!! These are some awful colors, apart from some greens, the blues, and the purples, every other color seems off and not colorful enough...
    Yellow looks like Dijon mustard, pink looks like salmon, magenta is off, olive is not olive...Yellow is my biggest disappointment..
    2. I'd like to be able to pin home pictures on homescreen, i dont want picture wall paper but I'd like a couple pictures on there of my choice.
    3. I'd like to replace the search button to display a google search and not Bing...And once again I'd like to change that to a wallpaper image and not one of the random images they provide on the bing search...I've changed Internet defaults to show google and not Bing but do not think I can do that for the search button itself...
    4. When browsing, I can not go forward. And if I push the windows button while browsing and then go back to IE, then I can NOT EVEN GO BACK!!! Therefore the internet needs some updating in that respect badly!

    This same complaint/issue thing happened with the 900, too. And like the 900 I bought this phone with WPCentral Forums induced nervousness however, this again has been unfounded. Certainly understand there are some issues but there seems to be some hyperbole on the forums with some users, and a large number of threads on the same issues exacerbating the appearance of the issues. These constant polls are always demonstrating that the quiet majority is really very satisfied. Hopefully the units that do have issues are resolved soon so we can have more productive discussions on making the 920 the best device possible. This board must be terrifying to a potential new user!

    Ahem...Mr Troll, if you don't want the Nokia Lumia, I'll love to buy from you and I know that many will love to do the same. Nobody forced you to switch...and oh yes WP8 is a very different OS compared to your boring iOS or even you malware-driven Android phones.

    The truth is Microsoft never tries to gain even 20% marketshare overnight, they achieve it gradually, never seen a more patient company because they build well for the future.

    You can go back to the over-hyped platforms you suggested and nobody will miss you. Just remember you on a time bomb.

    This is so incredibly spot on. It's really kind of sad, too, because these forums do hold a lot of clout. I see other sights posting articles about problems that have been identified on these forums, I only wish I saw articles based on customer satisfaction polls like this one or based on Amazon.com's reviews of the phone. The quiet majority is definitely happy with the phone. I don't have one yet but I keep telling myself to stop going on these forums because they're so discouraging...I have to go and read Amazon reviews to get my confidence back afterward.

    Switzerlands population isn't exactly known for jumping on new/unproven consumer technology. WP won't take off in Switzerland without it becoming successful elsewhere first. The same was true for Android and iPhone.

    However, I agree that WP7 and WP8 are experiencing similar levels of hype here in Switzerland... in both cases it was/is almost non-existent. More often than not, WP only gets media coverage due to Nokia's financial situation. That some of Microsoft's services like Zune Pass, Local Scout and audio search aren't supported isn't helpful either.

    I'm extremely happy with it, but I wouldn't recommend it to friends. I feel that in order to be happy with WP8 right now, you have to have an early-adopter mindset, be very patient, and be willing to cut the OS a lot of slack as it updates and the ecosystem builds out. IMO, you can't rely on this phone for social networking and navigation the way you can on more mature phone OSs yet. What you get with the 920 is terrific hardware and a slick new (and thankfully different) OS that has the promise of keeping current and pushing updates in a timely manner, and maybe listening to users' needs once in awhile rather than just what one person thinks works best for everyone. What you don't get yet is a lot of the apps and settings you're used to if you're currently on Android or iOS (something like Spotify is NOT Spotify if you're a subscriber already, and nothing is a replacement for Google+).

    The reason I wouldn't recommend it is that anyone who is already in that mindset has already done the research, weighed the pros and cons and decided whether or not to get it on their own. Anyone not willing or able to do that research shouldn't move to this yet, because they'll be frustrated when they suddenly realize they can't easily make their phone go completely silent (no vibrate either) the way they were able to on their 1997 Nokia phone, or mark all emails as read the way they were able to on their 2001 Blackberry, and their favorite app isn't available yet (wat?! no Instagram!?).

    Obviously no phone is perfect. Despite a few small issues, I have been very happy with this phone. I do recommend it to others. The only hesitation I see with people who are not very tech-savvy is they will miss out on some bigger name apps out there that all their other friends use. They will sometimes ask me "where is X and Y app", well, X and Y app don't actually exist on WP8 yet, but you can use Z app and it does the same thing.

    Thought it was just me lol! It has been hurdle after hurdle trying to get a L920 for me here in the UK but ironically the promise of this device is keeping me going... So Nokia must be doing something right! I've wound my self up to embarrassing levels over this device and because of these forums. The proof will be in the lumia pudding I guess but im still looking forward to it. I think... ;)
