    So my Android phone finally wen't back to the store and i got my money back... so my question is which phone should i get now?

    I have my eyes on the Nokia Lumia 920 and 925. I know that 920 has the wireless charging but it doesn't really matter to me. What REALLY matters is if the 925 is as durable as the 920 because I've looked at drop tests and such and it seems to crack the screen easier than the 920.

    Could you guys help me? Have anyone of you cracked your phones? Did it take much force to do so? Which phone would you recommend?

    I would personally go for the 920, since it has 16gb more memory (32gb against 16gb from 925's) and I prefer the 920's design over the 925's.. besides that, altough the 925 has a 6th lens, the 920 is almost the same thing of 925, and amber update started to roll, which means that they will come closer enough in camera area..

    I have a 920, I've dropped it face down already and I can say it is tough, it's a nokia.. and to close up: 920 is cheaper than 925 =)

    I live in Sweden btw so carriers do not own exclusive rights to phones here :) But i think the 925 is so stunningly beautiful and it's worth the extra money to me BUT i wanna know if it is as durable as a 920 (drop tests usually crack the screen from a pocket drop but the 920 had to be run over by a car and slammed hard into concrete blocks before it broke...)

    I don't know what to think :/

    I'm also in Sweden and I think I want the unique look of the 920 more than the 925. Though I'm thinking about buying the 920 now or wait for 925 to puush the price of the 920 even lower.

    I doubt the 920 will get much cheaper than it is now. Amazon Germany sells it new for 320 EUR already, you can't beat that value for price...

    920... i was personally going to get a 925 til i held it in comparison to 920 and yeah even though that it is slightly better when it comes to camera, form factor, weight and screen resolution.. 16gb and no built in wireless charging was a deal breaker for me. Guess it really depends on your preference but both device are almost identical - feature wise.

    For me, I'd get the 920 in red :)
    Really don't mind the few extra weight and the chunky look. I got big hands that needs a big phone.

    16gb memory is really sometin u need to consider..
    920 has all features present on 925 except the camera s little more good in 925.
    i say clearly 920.

    It's a close one, very close. I love my 920 but I'd get a 925. Reasons for and against this ranked:

    925 Pros:
    1.- AMOLED screen allows for using Glance without having a great cost on battery life
    2.- Better battery life (due also to AMOLED)
    3.- Slightly better camera
    4.- Thinner (though I don't really care, see CONS 2, 4)

    925 Cons:
    1.- 16 Gb less storage (half)
    2.- Seems to be more fragile
    3.- Screen colours are worse
    4.- No wireless charging
    5.- Shell design and colours are so effin' boring.
    6.- Aluminum shell is slippery, cold and boring. Sellout here too.

    Now my assesment of the 925. It wasn't needed. It was put out exclusively to address people's complains (?) of its weight and thickness, which IMHO are irrelevant. They did change a couple of things while they were at it, but they are minor and could wait for the next model.
    The 928 is really not a lot better. The winner of the line so far is clearly the 1020.

    Wow - the poll is tied at 7 each for both the 920 and 925 ! Niice !!

    I won't list out the pros and cons of both because that really just confused me when I was making the same decision :)
    I'd have to say the 920 - Purer design, MUCH cheaper and more storage capacity
