    I decided, after playing with the 8X (but still not being able to buy one, due to T-Mo shortage), that I'm calling off my comparo and just keeping my Lumia 920.

    This means two things:

    1) I like the 920.

    2) Nobody can accuse me of being anti-Nokia anymore when I do criticize them. :D

    Now we will just make the argument that you are still Anti-Nokia but MORE anti-everyone else. ;)

    Nothing wrong with either one. If your needs/desires are met by one more than the other and you pick that one, then you have made the wise choice.

    So you agree that the Lumia 920 is the superior device? :P

    Went to the ATT store and held both 920 and 8X.
    It was odd, the way I naturally held the 8X my pinky finger was directly over the camera button, and would accidentally push it.

    But, with the 920, my hand naturally held it without button conflicts.

    So this alone will cause me to go with the 920 over the 8X. Somehow Nokia designed the phone with my specific hand in mind. Hmm, lucky me.

    I think the one real conclusion that we can all come to with certainty is that bmiller1976 has been working out.

    Hey, people seem to have a hard enough time pressing the 8x buttons on purpose (at least according to reviewers based on how the buttons are placed/designed on the 8X), I don't think you would have a problem in that regard... In my (very) brief time with the 8X the buttons were a bit more difficult to press than I was used to with my Focus (at the time).

    Oh well, the 920 is an awesome phone!
