    I need a new phone. My budget is up to $200. Both the international version of the Lumia 920 RM-820 from B&H Photo and the Blu Win HD LTE from the Microsoft Store are at this price.

    I prefer a better camera, and the camera button, but I like the dual SIM of the Blu Win HD LTE.

    Are there any suggestions on which device I should get? Historically, the Lumia 920 has been a great flagship phone, but it is a bit long in the tooth: Only dual core, older chipset, etc. But it has a compass and a gyroscope, and Qi charging and a camera button and 32 GB of onboard memory.

    The Blu WinHD LTE has the dual SIM, but an unknown camera, and less memory.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    In the end, I decided to go with the Lumia 920. If only the 730 or the Win HD LTE had been a little cheaper...

    jacobdrj why not an 830 from ebay? Blu is nice but try to stay within the Lumia family if you want to ensure speedy help and services. Case in point, the windows phone tool does not support non lumia devices.

    Warranty is important to me.

    Very cool. Was your old 920 from AT&T, otherwise branded, or an internationally unlocked version?
    Did your old 920 have Denim? How did 8.1 run on it?

    The old one is AT&T flashed with Rogers rom. It has 8.1 with denim and it runs silky smooth. Battery even seems better now, I can usually go 2 full days until charging.

    New 920 arrived today. I got an MX CV with AWS bands listed, 920.3. Better than expected!!

    Same one I got. Shipped with Amber. Updated it via Lumia Recovery to Cyan. Doesn't look like Denim is available. Beautiful phone, much more so than my AT&T Lumia 1520 or my wife's 830.

    Nice. I immediately flashed the Rogers rom again since it does support the AWS band and went straight to denim. I had problems restoring from backup so I am starting from scratch this time.
