    Hello Folks,

    Well i recently bought a Lumia 920 (Matte Black ... as i wanted one with that)

    Its a Awesome Device and so far i am just loving it.

    But one Thing i am noticing is that my Lumia 920 differs than others in one aspect.
    The Backside of my Lumia where Lens is present and Carl Zeis is written is in Steel whereas other Lumias are in Black Ceramic

    I dont know this difference .. is My Cellphone an old model.

    I am new to WP8 and Nokia Lumia 920 ...!!

    If anyone could help me out :)

    I believe that it's only steel for the black version, all other versions are ceramic black because of design choices by Nokia.

    Nop, it is suppose to be Zirconium, the same material as the buttons, mine is Matte Black and the camera decoration and buttons are Zirconium. I will go back and exchange it, it will scratch in a blink of an eye.

    It still requires the phone to have somekind of network connection (Wifi or cellular). There is no desktop pass through mode anymore.
