    Have I ever needed more than 5mpixels? Yes, I am starting to try and get some of my work sent to print and may be attempting to sell it. My mum has already decided to get one of my landscape shots canvassed. Which I took with the 920.

    My first DSLR was a Nikon D70s - fantastic camera. I had a few photos printed pretty large from that camera, including one at 4' x 3' (1.2m x 0.9m), and it still looks great today. The D70s has a 6.1MP sensor. The reason the photos from it still look better than any phone today is partly because of the physical size of the sensor, which allows in a TON of light and the grid is spaced so that each pixel is rendered clearly (unlike any phone on the market), and partly because the lenses are quite a bit better.

    If you were to look up close at an image printed from a physically larger 4MP cellphone sensor like the One and a smaller 8.7 like the L920 side-by-side (assuming the lenses and processing software are of about equal quality) when printed large and only paid attention to the objective quality difference between the two, I would be willing to bet that they'll either look the same, or the One might be a touch better. Step back a bunch, and they'd probably look about the same, but I'm sure I would prefer the photo from the L920 - I like the character (subjective qualities) that the Zeiss lens/whatever sensor they sourced gives the photos that phone produces. Put either of these up to even a ten-year-old DSLR, and that will blow them away. I got a 920 because I love the photos it takes, but I still keep my large camera and lenses for when I want real quality work.

    If you're at the point where you're thinking about printing large and (especially) selling your photos, a dedicated camera is probably the way to go :) Even if you were to pick up a cheap second-hand DSLR and a couple of cheap primes like a 24, a 35 and a 50, you'd really start to see the difference when viewing photos up close and printing them. You'd also have the option of trying out different focal lengths so you're not stuck at 23mm all the time if you decide to get into portraits or telephoto work.

    If it didn't have HTC on it, I'd want this device... oh and if it weren't Android

    The 450D (Canon, cheapest model I can get that supports RAW) is 500 second hand...

    Edit: seen it for 120 and postage. May be time to start looking.

    Happy enough to chat about it in a PM - figuring out which system to go with can be daunting.

    the hTC One is an awesome phone, there is alot I really like and wish were implemented in Nokia phones, front stereo speakers, amplifiers for speakers and 3.5mm jack, and the IR blaster......but

    hTC support is pretty much non existent, hopefully you will never need it. Nokia is a company with actual customer service, they stand behind their products 100%. That alone makes me not consider hTC.
    well where you live nokia support must be good
    here in australia, people have got some defective 920s, which is fine it happens.. but we send it out to repair and we receive the 920 back which they say they repaired...within a couple of hours same fault is seen

    and their response to that is ... send it back again

    I went in and looked at it today and I found it slower than the older LG Optimus G and the G is $200 cheaper if you're paying full price and the screen looked better IMOP.

    It is sluggish or maybe its just lag. For example, when using swype or google keyboard you encounter missed swipes because for whatever processing reason it didn't read it, and it literally freezes for a half-second until it will read the swipes again. Its annoying. This happens in other scenarios as well. I think the design is gorgeous, but software-wise its a step back from the smoothness of the wp8.
