    920, because of the screen and design.

    Replacing it shortly, though.

    if (920 has MicroSD && 920 smaller) {
    920 wins!
    } else if (820 storage > 8GB && 820 less wide && can load apps on SD) {
    820 wins!
    } else if ((520, 620,720) == LTE && can load apps on SD) {
    520, 620, and 720 wins!
    } else if (samsung smaller) {
    samsung wins!
    } else {
    undecided....but loving the 820 :)
    }

    I'm going to say 822 but it's the only one I've really played with. I never really considered the 8X because of non-replaceable battery and non-expandable storage. Plus, I really liked the feel of the Lumia.

    920 is the only available WP8 phone that I like right now. 928 will probably be added to that list when it's released.

    The camera - it's all about the camera.

    I love my 810

    It's a perfect "bang for your buck" phone. Has (almost) everything a high end phone has, with a few small things cut short (like resolution and internal memory BUT it has expandable!), and half the price. I paid $285 for mine off-contract, pay $30/mo on my plan, and the only thing I wish I had that the flagship 920 has were the special image features that phone has (stabilzation, etc) and the higher res. But yet with OLED the screen still looks amazing, so I'm not really missing my lack of 1080p on a 4" device..

    Used to be HTC 8S because of the color combinations, but 720 now.
    920's a bit too heavy for me, and 820's just fat and short.

    I would agree with the 8S. I think it's easily the best looking, but I wish it wasn't lower end.

    I use the 822 and will likely be getting the 928. I'm satisfied with them both looks wise.

    Design wise , 8X is sleek and amazingly designed but heard about its paint issues and 16gb storage is too low for me.

    Then considered a Lumia 920 .Sure , 32 GB storage is lot but its not enough for my usage , That's the main reason I changed my mind in the last minute and went for 820 even though I went to the store originally to get 920. I made up my mind because 820 screen looked totally fine for me even though I was expecting lot less from that low res screen

    If you don't mind me asking, what kind of files are you putting on your SD card that need so much storage?

    Thanks, I bought 32 GB SD for my 820 and honestly, I have no use for it, as I use cloud for everything.

    The one I have my 8x. :D I really wanted a 920, but with Catwalk around the corner I decided to get an 8X right now and pick up Catwalk around June when that's rumored to come out. You can't go wrong with either in my opinion.

    For me it's the HTC 8X. I originally bought a Lumia 920 based on great reviews, but after a week I hated it and took it back and exchanged it for the 8X which I love more and more every day. The main reason is the Lumia 920 is UNWEILDY. It is heavy, too wide for comfort, slippery, and has straight sides, making it very difficult to pick up confidently with one hand without feeling at risk of dropping it. Picking up my phone is something I do dozens of times a day. The 8X in total contrast is light (yet strong), narrower, has a nice grippy surface and is bevelled at the edges, so that with one hand I can easily flip it up into my palm with great confidence. It just feels right in my hand and I can hold it for long periods without my hand getting tired, which was not the case with the 920: no matter how much I tried to convince myself I would get used to it, I just didn't. With the 920, because it is heavy and slippery I had to hold it more firmly. This resulted in me repeatedly activating the camera button accidentally, because the button is actually quite mushy and placed right where you grip the phone. I was expecting big things from the 920's camera. It does very well in low light, but overall all images where very soft focus in appearance, too soft to the point where they all seemed out of focus, and just didn't seem right. The 8X's camera to me gives nice sharp photos, so I'm happier with that. I also noted the GPS in the 920 was very laggy and I couldn't navigate effectively from it. It would generally be about 30 seconds behind my actual position when driving, so that I would be 2 or 3 blocks past my turn-off before it updated the screen. My 8X updates the screen every 2-3 seconds, and also has downloadable maps now, so that you can navigate outside 3G reception range (I wasn't actually aware of this until after I had purchased the phone - a nice surprise because I had decided to sacrifice that feature of the 920 to get the more ergonomic 8X). Sure, the 8X only has half the memory of the 920, but I don't store masses of music or video on my phone so it's irrelevant to me.

    I guess much of this is personal preference. My personal take is that the Lumia 920 is beautiful to behold, whereas the HTC 8X is beautiful to use (as well as being a stunning, ergonomic design in my opinion). I wonder how many reviews are based on the initial "wow this looks good" effect, and hence why the Lumia 920 has had such good press. All I can say that having used both of these phones for good periods of time, the 8X is easy to love, the 920 just frustrated me.

    There, that should stir up some comment...

    All of that is weird. Your phone grip is weird if you press the shutter key while holding the phone. You basically rest the majority of the phones back on your palm instead of your index/middle/ring fingers.
    As for slippery, i can rest my 920 flat on my palm and angle it nearly vertical with no slipping or sliding of the phone.

    But Im used to phones like the s2/s3, so my grip has adjusted to the better viewing screens and don't find it unwieldly at all.

    In contrast i found the htc models unwieldly due to the imo flawed position of the lock key (top of the device iirc).

    Also I think their wp devices are ugly and feels nasty to use.

    Again; personal preferences.

    Discarding "i like this because i just like it" arguments, the 920 wins hands down.
    But those things matter to people, which is why people buy technically inferior devices and at steeper prices, like for instance iPhones.

    There's no right or wrong, really, just preferences.

    820 :) 4.3" is perfect for me, I love OLEDs and I also need the space (currently, I have not enough space with a 64GB card ;D )

    my beloved 620 ofc :D
    the size is just perfect (i have small hands) and it is a bit different from the other Lumias - it has rounded corners, which gives it a sort of unique feeling XD
    screen has beautiful colors and awesome ppi for its category!
    i love the exchangeable shells and i'm crazy to buy at least 2 (yellow and magenta *-*)
    the camera also performs rly well for its price range!

    512Mb is just fine for my everyday tasks and so far i found no apps limitations, all the ones i need works perfectly! ofc it doesen't support heavy 3D games but if i play anything at all i go for casual games, so it's just fine!

    620 it's a pretty solid adorable phone for such an affordable price! (there's 520 now which is cheaper therefore lacks some features - rly Nokia, you had to remove camera flash? lol)

    I love my 8X only because of the fact that I can truly call it a music lovers phone, with beats audio and all. The speakers are LOUD and crisp, and the headphones sound awesome! I got the phone for this very reason and don't regret it. I thought the beats audio was just a gimmick and some software added to the phone at first and wasn't too impressed, until I tried it myself at the stores and wow was I shocked. Good phone!

    Mine is the L920. I needed a good hassle-free phone with a good camera for the occasional photo. The L920 delivers on that for me.

    I do like Nokia L520 that I convince my mum to buy. It look very sexy, light and generally excellent.

    However I still prefer my L920.
