    I'm on the fence. As much as I love this phone most of the time, excessive dust under the FFC and a useless proximity sensor have really put a damper on my spirits. I just spent ten days with no phone waiting for Nokia repair... They returned it having cleaned out most of the dust, saying nothing was wrong. Already dust is showing again... ungh.

    No.

    There is no phone that is the best at everything. There is no phone OS that offers everything.

    WP8 is a pretty great OS. Some may prefer something with particular features not present yet. That's fine.

    Other OS's don't have the features that makes me love WP. They dont have the things I love about my Nokia.

    Different strokes for different folks. And just because it's not everything to everyone, doesn't make it a "beta" phone.

    No. I don't even like supporting the WP platform at work, anymore. Since I don't have much to do with WP for the next few months, at work, I'll just take a peek, sometime later this year, to see if even some of my gripes have been rectified (merely the feature losses from WP7--WP8 as an entire ecosystem - I'm not even asking for MSFT to try and compete vs Google or Apple).

    Tough call. Love the screen and the OS, BUT

    - navigation is now available for all WP8, no longer exclusive to Nokia
    - I have dust in the FFCam
    - Battery is miscalibrated, stays at 100% for hours, then plummets
    - capacitive buttons stay lit even while watching full screen video
    - it IS a little tricky to hit the back button with right-hand use, keep almost dropping it
    - it's definitely heavy. Also, I'm weak.

    The rear camera is amazing though. Still, if the 8x didn't have such a puny amount of memory, I would be tempted to switch.

    Personally, no.

    Quality control on these devices was super inconsistent. All three of the Lumia's I owned I returned due to FCC / Vibration Rattle / Creaking / Light Leakage / Etc. Windows OS is pretty good and it'll be there once things like the notification centre hit.

    Unfortunately Nokia has seriously put me off it's products, even though apart from the above issues the Lumia 920 is an amazing phone.

    Yes. I bought 2 Lumia 920 and both are working great; fast performance, long battery life etc... I had issues with battery drain but turned out it was some apps that were draining it (like wheel of wealth, it was so bad). I sometimes wonder at some unlucky folks who had multiple Lumia 920 not working for them.

    Thanks, your comments will be helpful for me and other people who wants to buy. I'd be more happy if you say which phone you would prefer over Lumia.

    lucky you

    I am not a person who ask for features but :
    1- Browser can not open a tab in background is not the best browser !! has no nevagation for youtube video , come on !!
    2- Contact app missing a lot of features to be fine , I don't like to have 3rd party app !
    3- I am really missing fast toggle !! Don't do it microsoft but at least give the developers the ability to ... I am at map app , the app tells me your GPS is not on !! So give me the ability to do it without closing the app , the same for bluetooth when sending photo !!
    4- Setting is missing dozen of Basic setting like sms ringtone , keyboard volume control ....
    5- Maps is outdated , google map much better , and offline nev is *** !!
    6- I don't even want to start talking about apps , you would say that you should have know it before buying !! NO , nokia said that it is working on whatsapp version then nothing !! where is microsoft apps and games that we promised to have !!

    when you see the new phone released at the end of this year , then you will know what I am saying !!! and Nokia already knew it and not having a lot of phones manufactured at the release date even though wp8 was late , and also samsung and other phones companies !! as an example No HD display for htc and samsung and No 13 mb camera !!!

    I would definitely buy another. The phone itself has been solid. No product is without issues (although I personally have not noticed anything major with the Lumia). Enjoy the OS. Keeping it simple, just wanted to report a currently positive ownership experience.

    I didn't get why you would buy another. You seem happy with Lumia.

    I had the 900. I bought it in August, not knowing it was being replaced so soon. I wanted to love it, but couldn't. The Camera was horrid. Luckily for me, the 900 decided to separate the the screen from the body and I got a 920 as a replacement. No looking back now! Yeah, XBox Music sucks the big one and Bluetooth won't connect to my Lenovo Yoga, but I love my 920. Hells yeah I'd buy another Nokia.

    I think he meant he would definitely buy another Lumia, since he's so happy with it.

    Personally, I love the Lumia, from the build to the OS to the touch sensitivity (which is buttery smooth), albeit there are some improvements needed to to make the OS everyone's cup of tea.
    But hey, it's like they say, no OS is perfect but this one's got a lot of potential if MS starts taking their consumers' request seriously.
    The OS is still in it's infancy, and I'm really looking forward to what lies ahead. It's all the same story with any OS from iOS to Android to BB. For instance, when iOS first came out it was pretty basic, any personalisation you wanted to make, you'd have to jailbreak the phone (and thank god for that).
    So I guess what i'm trying to say is, if we're patient enough, we might see great things from MS. Hang in there.
    As for the hardware, no complaints, lovin' it. But I do pity those who've had issues left and right. My heart goes out to you guys.

    I am happy with my lumia. When I stated I would buy another, I meant I would buy another Lumia for a family member.

    Yes I would, although im on my second 920, the first one had an issue. It made a rattling sound, I returned it and exchanged for a new one and have had no issues.

    For the record, putting a little compressed air to the top speaker will clear the proximity sensor issue. I've had it happen a couple of times, but a little spray fixed it each time. It's worth not having to stick with my Droid Incredible though. I couldn't stand Android any longer, and HTC is a crappy company.

    Among my circle of friends who bought a Lumia 920, there is nobody who had issues. All I read is those few complaining. Nokia customer service and after sales service is second to none for quality if you have the rare bad luck to need their service.
    I don't think I would ever buy an Apple or Android. The only smartphone I would get back to is my Nokia N8 on Symbian. There are some basic features you always get on a Symbian which (if you get used to) you don't find on a WP8/iPhone/Android. Now that I'm used to my Lumia 920 I wouldn't go back, no.
    Having said that I think you shouldn't be mulling over for too long.

    Dust under the FFC and the proximity sensor issues are a big downer. Otherwise a great phone.
