I just got my 920 today and I was extremely thrilled with using it. Just came from a GS3. I never used a case on my GS3 due to the fact it was a pretty well built phone. I had one problem that always plagued me when using an lcd display on a phone and that's the dust getting under the digitizer. I've had this phone for a total of 8 hours and there are already 4 particles of dust in the center of the screen on the phone. If they aren't properly sealed I might just have to bring it back and stick with my gs3 :(

Apart from that: I've been using mine for a week and I'll be returning mine, too - but mainly because I think WP 8 has a long, long way to go to catch up with Android in terms of functionality. I'll probably get a Galaxy Note II instead. Same weight, much larger screen and the whole Android eco-system that comes with it is just more mature.

I just got my 920 from the ATT store. The next day I found dusts (likely pocket lint) in the camera housing. One day later, there are more dusts found. Probably because it is too close to the earphone. I am afraid after two year contract expires, it will be full of dust. I hope this is a manufacturing defect, not a design defect. Hopefully the replacement does not have this problem.

Just found more dust under the screen of my phone. Going to att tomorrow to try to swap it for another. Hopefully I just got a bad unit. Not getting my hopes up. This normally happens with an LCD screen.
Update: I just got back from switching out my second matt black 920 for the high gloss red. So far no dust and also no strange rattle. Could it possibly be that the math black ones have a quality control issue?

So I returned my red 920 after about 4 days because it was turning off and wouldn't turn back on. I payed the restocking fee to swap out for a black one. Now I've had the black one for about a week and I'm noticing some dust in the front facing camera under the glass. Really kind of annoyed that I'm going to have to go in there again and exchange another one. I hope this isn't going to be an issue with every one I get.. I've had this phone a week.. I can just imagine how much crap will build up in there after 6 months.

My first Lumia 920 accumulated more and more dust in the front camera, and after about 30 days, the front sensor stopped working. This meant that the screen always turned black as soon as I would make a phone call preventing me from using the other phone features or even hanging up! Swapped it out for another 920 as was my only option, and guess what, after 5 days there is already dust accumulating in the front camera housing, AGAIN... The worst part, I'm past my 14 days to swap it for a different phone, and ATT is giving me **** just trying to get another replacement... TERRIBLE! Plus the WP8 ecosystem sucks, but I knew that going into this.
