I used to be an HTC guy because I didn't know anything better existed. I actually used to see Nokia as this "low-end, weirdo smartphone system that couldn't do as much as all the other systems". I started out with an HTC Touch HD. Then an HTC HD2. Then an HTC HD7, but now I took the jump to Nokia.
I bought a Lumia 920. I am really impressed with Windows Phone 8 (although some things such as autocorrect compared to Windows Phone 7 has actually gotten worse in Danish - it corrects my correct spellings into mistakes). I also like the Lumia 920 as a whole, and it's really an amazing phone. I've had no issues with it regarding battery drain or anything related to it.
However, now my Proximity sensor started acting weird. I Googled it, and concluded that many others have the same problem. Using some canned air on the speaker of the phone helps temporarily, but the problem keeps coming back. Yes, I know it's not theoretically Nokia's fault that my proximity sensor gets covered in dust or something, but I feel as if the proximity sensor (from when I bought the phone) was already at the time calibrated wrong.
When I just got my phone, I had to move it quite a long distance from my ear before it would re-enable the phone (at least compared to my previous HTC phones). Also, it seemed as if it took some time for the sensor to react, already at the time.
So here's my rant regarding the Lumia 920. Why is the proximity sensor calibrated so poorly? It's really a shame that it can't take a little dust in the speaker hole. I hope they update this soon. So far, I haven't liked the fact that I had to use canned air on the speaker tray every 3 days to make my phone stop disabling itself during a call. That is just plain stupid.
