- 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.02-10-2013 05:26 PM
- I'm absolutely in love with my Lumia 920! Great camera, amazing battery, I'm always impressed by the design of this phone every time I look at it. Yes I can see a big difference in weight with my old 1st gen Samsung Focus but its not a major problem for me. I can understand people who would like a lighter device though. I don't use a whole lot of apps but it would nice to have Instagram, Flipboard, Google Maps (will never happen lol) , Pinterest, Vine and a couple of local apps that aren't available on WP8. BIGGEST PROBLEM: MEDIA SYNCING, BRING BACK ZUNE!!
In my honest opinion, the only advantage Android and iOS have over WP8 is the huge catalog of games and all the banking apps. Other than that WP8 is really great and users shouldn't be ashamed of the platform.02-10-2013 05:57 PM
- No, I would buy a GS3 without hesitation. People need to stop comparing the L920 with the GS3, WP8 is flat out broken. The severely inoperable lock screen/ live tile gimmick is becoming a joke of a feature. WP8 should have been Nokia's and Microsoft's initial launch 2yrs ago, instead of these WP substandard devices.02-10-2013 06:17 PM
Fact is the 920 and WP8 are both problematic and both are failures IMHO. I'm on my third phone now and all three of them have had the same battery, quality and software issues. If that makes me on drugs, well I guess I'm on drugs.02-10-2013 07:03 PM

- I'd originally bought a Nexus 4 and the L920, sold the Nexus 4 and kept the L920 just because of the glass back and fear of dropping it.
I know the 920 is just as brittle screen wise, but I kinda wish I stuck to the N4, just for the apps an customization.
I don't think WP8 will improve that situation because WP8 and Win8 are built with the silly phrase "The Best User Experience" in mind.
This has led to too many hoops for devs to jump through and difficulty in making apps to run on limited access in the hardware. Maybe this is why many apps already available are just an extension of those already on offer on the phones themselves.
I hope MS do address this point and we do get to see many of the better mainstream titles appearing on WP8.
Until then, as good my L920 is, I just get the feeling "the grass is greener on the other side" so wouldn't recommend, YET!!02-10-2013 10:00 PM

- You do realize that you will ALWAYS see a lot of complaints and such on a forum like this don't you? That's how it works. People who have a gripe will put it in here but people who like something will rarely go out of their way to say how good it is. You have to take this stuff with a grain of salt. As for me, I can't think of anything out there that I would want more. I do like the idea behind the Galaxy Note II but I'm just not interested in going back to Android right now. I just really like the WP8 UI and it suits my needs much better. It also works better between me and my husband (he has one also) because it allows us to share things in a way that's far easier than any other device. It just works for us. So I'm sticking with it for the foreseeable future. For the record, the only other device that even has my curiosity going is Blackberry Z10.02-10-2013 11:46 PM

- Yes. All new Smartphones these days seem to always have a bad batch or two. My htc One X had a host of issues. The GS3, well what about the SOD or whatever it was. And I've also read on one forum about dead pixels, lags etc. My Lumia 920 froze on me like 2 in the 3 mos since I bought it. Are there things to imrove on? Sure. But I'd still buy it if given another chance. Although I might get the red one hehehe...02-11-2013 12:04 AM
- i had 920 since 3 months, first one used to just shut down randomly, returned for warranty exchange, new one is awesome, so YES, i would buy another Nokia Phone, new phone has some dust in the front facing camera, i rarely use front facing camera i don't even know how this is going to affect the video. other than these 2 issues i am loving my Lumia 920, great battery life, nice GPS02-11-2013 07:08 AM
- Dude, get a windows phone. Just do it. I have had all of them and I am not kidding. Andoid is too messy, immature, laggy, unreliable and insecure. The thousands of apps on google play are very low quality. iOS gets on my nerves. I wouldn't buy anything Apple anyways, not for the price and what you get. iOS in my opinion is really old in the tooth, don't be an iSheep. Get something better. Windows phone 7 and especially 8 is fantastic, in virtually everyway. It is fast, it doesn't need a 1 million GHz CPU or 10 GBs of RAM, basic specs and this windows phone runs like a dream. Its beautiful to look at, elegant, functional, useful, practical, secure, fluid, reliable and it never ever lags. It is completely rock solid. I love it an I will never go back. get a HTC windows phone, I recommend the 8X. That's what I have ordered. HTC phones are the best built and the best to look at in my opinion.02-11-2013 11:02 AMLike 2
- I have 3 phones I carry around with me on a daily basis. iPhone 4S, Nexus 4, Nokia Lumia 920.
- Too small and the UI interface is dull. Notifications work a lot better than Windows Phones but I really dislike the toast counts.
- Better than the iPhone. Widgets are great and the app game selection is good. Its defiantly the phone you want to have when your sitting down chilling watching TV
- It doesn't have the app and game selection but for your on-the-go phone its amazing. I recommend Lumia 920 as your on-the-go phone
I would defiantly get another 920 I have a Black one right now. If I had a chance to get a Yellow or Red I would jump on that right away.02-11-2013 11:11 AM
- Sometimes I wish I hadn't wasted my upgrade on the 920. I have a red 920 from AT&T. I was a big fan of WP7 where I purchased an LG Quantum on day one. I liked the "Fresh" OS so much that I jumped immediately to WP8 as soon as it became available. I chose the 920 because of Nokia's track record for updating/upgrading deficiencies. However, given the constant uphill struggle with battery life, and an even more troubling issue that happens whenever I try to end a call, I'd be lying if I said I wouldn't pass on the 920 for the new BB10 Z10. I left BB for WP7 because it had gotten stale, and the new Z10 appears to be enough to try and pull me back (if I hadn't wasted my upgrade).02-11-2013 12:21 PM
- After having this phone for a week (red 920), it is absolutely amazing. I've had the 3G, played with the 4/4s/5 and it's all the same stuff. Looks terrible and seems everyone thinks they're pretty cool with one, but they all look the same so no. You know it's getting the dull when the 50's have it.
I'm not an expert on Android as my gf has a crappy telus android phone so I can't comment on it. It's OK. But I'm in love with my 920. Best phone on the market.02-11-2013 02:54 PM
