    Ah, just had to send my 920 for repairs for det second time. It has all kinds of problems, and im tired of it. I regret not bying and Ativ S, and if i get at New 920 in Return, I will sell it and buy the ativ s. Sorry Nokia, but your hw sucks.

    Problems:
    - Dust under the glass. ffc.
    - Poor batterylife after portico
    - Screen does'nt always respond to touch, need to tap several times to get a response.
    - Camera flash does'nt work when the phone gets hot. If I use the flash as a flashlight, it works for maybe 5 Seconds before it turns off because of overheating.
    - Random reboots
    - Random reboots with the phone getting stuck at the Nokia splash screen.
    - +++

    Hate to say this, but it sounds like you got a defective device and it's not just that the entire lot of 920's are bad. For every post or thread complaining about the 920, there's thousands of satisfied users as well.

    Sorry you got a bad device but thanks for not giving up on WP. Good luck.

    Yeah i know. Not all 920's are bad, but it seems to be more doa's than normal.
    I wont give up on wp just yet! I love it, and ios and android is so awful, i cant stand them. So just waiting to see if i get a new 920 in return, fingers crossed

    I'm returning my third Lumia 920. I loved my Lumia 800, but these 920s are plagued with issues. I'll keep returning mine until I get a good one. Good thing I kept my Lumia 800 for back up!

    Curious: did you buy your Lumia 920 early (close to launch). Been contemplating buying a lumia now and wondering if perhaps the newer ones don't have as many problems.
