    Performance is going to be about the same approximately.
    Here are the major differences I think...

    735:
    Larger display (4.7" OLED - which is better is subjective)
    virtual buttons
    better battery life (removable battery)
    8 GB storage + microSD
    superior front facing camera
    no camera key
    removable back cover (can swap out colors easily)

    920:
    4.5" LCD
    actual buttons
    non-removable battery
    32 GB storage, no microSD
    superior rear camera, dual LED

    I personally would have a hard time choosing, but I think I might lean towards the 735.
    Depends though.
    glance feature
    camera key

    The thing is you are comparing a two year old phone (L920) which was a high spec model when it was released vs a two month old phone (L735) which would be described as mid-low end. What do you use your phone for mostly?

    Yes I know that I am doing what you said. Thats why I cant decide.

    As for what I use / will use phone for -- taking photos, and audio recording interviews (for my articles).

    I would go with the 735. It's newer and will be supported longer than the 920 which will mean future updates. The 920 is getting close to EOL (36 months?). I also like my phones to have a removable battery (my 1520 is the exception there) and an SD card slot. Having an SD card slot will allow for you to store more pictures and audio recordings than the 920 which will be limited there depending on how many apps/games, other files, etc. you store on the phone and how frequently you move files from the phone to a computer. I think I would prefer the screen of the 735 over the 920 as well, but they're both probably going to be pretty decent. Camera wise I'm sure the rear cameras are pretty similar with the 920s being a little better, but of course the 735 has a better front facing camera.

    Will Nokia Lumia 920 be upgradable/compatible to/with Windows 10 ? In other words, will I be able to update to windows 10 on Nokia Lumia 920 once the windows 10 is released.

    The 735 is the better choice.. If you want a better camera experience than the 735,or glance, you should go with the 830 since it is a more versatile version of the 920.

    The 920 may not be the first device, since there's so many models that MS has to upgrade.
    I would bet the 735 gets the update sooner, but we really can't say.

    But it will indeed get 10 soon. But if its tied to a carrier, it may not be so simple.

    Windows Mobile Power User recommends the L735 as an update for the 920:

    "The more I used the Nokia Lumia 735 the more I liked it. After using increasingly large handsets over the years, it was a relief to use a thin and light handset for a change. Battery life impressed me, as did the camera, as long as you spent time focussing, and the unibody design is outstanding. Surprisingly I would be happy to use this inexpensive handset as my daily driver, and would even go so far as to recommend it to 920 upgraders looking for a cheap handset in the spirit of their old device." (Review: Nokia Lumia 735 (video))

    The L735 is my first Windows Phone, and I love it. It takes superb photos, audio recording is good (I use Mini Recorder Free), is very comfortable to hold, has expandable storage and a removeable battery, not to mention wireless charging. It's never randomly rebooted or frozen, and I don't get any prolonged 'resuming...' messages. Fabulous phone for the price.

    EDIT:
    Also, the 735 has Denim and here in the UK Cortana is available and works a treat.

    Thats the thing.

    I cant afford 830.

    I can afford only among these two - NOKIA Lumia 920 & NOKIA Lumia 735.

    Careful mentioning wmpu is taboo to some folks here lmao. See rubino-gate haha.

    ITs hard for me to really say which is the better buy of the two devices. But if I had to choose, I'd probably get the 735 as it is newer and may be supported longer than the now 2 year 920 .

    Although spec wise, I think they may be quite comparable as the 920 today is what we call midrange and the 735 is a midrange

    Neither is capable of doing what you are asking for. Here is a comparison. The SoC is better on the 735 and it is a newer phone. With SD card support and updates in the future, it is a no brainer at this point in terms of getting the 735 over the 920.

    I guess go for the cheaper one.

    Although I'd get the 735 because of battery life probably.

    Then get the 735.

    the ONLY advantage of the 920 over the 735 is the Camera ... and glance

    Get the 735. It is the BETTER choice

    L735 have slightly larger display & better colors. Gorilla glass 3. Removable back cover/battery. Expandable memory. slightly larger battery. Much lighter than L920. Better FFC. On-Screen buttons, I hate on-screen buttons though. L735 is slightly thinner :)
    And L920 packs with 2 year old technology (but the rear camera is great yet.)

    I'd probably go for L735,

    Chances for 920 are non-existant and are low for 735 as well. Hope this finally helps you make a decision:-)

    I will add my personal opinion and reduce those chances to zero.

    Needs at least 10MP for 4K. So nope.

    Is the 920 the same price as the 735?
    If money is an item go for the cheapest and/or buy it second-hand.
    If you use it for interviews you do not need to make selfies so the front camera is not important.
    If you voice record only a SD card is not needed because it will not use that much space. If you want to video record a interview that will eat storage space so you need a SD card.
