    Unlocked? No
    Color: Black
    Charging Method: Wireless
    Portico updated? yes
    Carrier: EE
    Heavy usage? yes

    Gmail user? No (previously used gmail with no problems)
    Nokia Maps / Drive user? yes
    Inconsistencies in battery life? No (although inconsistent on Portico update for 2-3 charge cycles)

    I would add that this is my second Lumia 920 and the first did suffer a constant and random reboot problem. I took it back for a replacement within the first 2 weeks no questions asked time frame and the second (current) one has been fine.

    Original unit. None a single problem whatsoever.

    Country bought from: USA
    Unlocked? No
    Color: White
    Charging Method: Mostly Plate.
    Portico updated? Yes
    Carrier: AT&T
    Heavy usage? No
    Occasional overheating? No
    Skype user? No
    Gmail user? Yes
    Nokia Maps / Drive user? Occasionally
    Inconsistencies in battery life? No

    The only thing I had was brightness not getting up to a proper level when I used to have my phone on Automatic Brightness. After turning Auto brightness off and having set it to Medium
    it is consistent all the time.
    My phone is great and I just love it.

    Probably you will need to add questions about Bluetooth and NFC, as alot of users got their 920 freezing when they used them
