    The 925 is pretty similar, but it has better camera.

    The 925 if you like thinness and a pretty good camera. Or the 1020 with an amazing 41MP camera. It's up to you.

    The 920 is a great device. I know 3 people that have one. One of the three has a device that had many of the well-documented issues (random reboots, heating/battery drain) prior to the amber update, and he loved it even then. I love my Ativ S but if I had the spare cash I would pick one up without hesitation. If you don't have to have the latest and greatest, there is no reason not to pick up a 920 at the right price.

    In the order of priority
    -1020
    -925
    -920
    -720

    Depending on how much cash you wish to shell out.
