    Why?
    Best thing to do is use your 920/current lumia till it's getting "old"(after 1/2 years) because by then there will be way better phones anyway
    Unless you want to buy a new phone every few months.

    And just like apple:never buy first Gen, 2nd Gen is usually an improved and cheaper phone.

    And ofcorse wp8 will have evolved by the time your phone is old.

    So buy less, get more
    Im frustrated on my Lumia920 grey. Blurred/mphotos, easily dented and the battery is not good.

    Im frustrated on my Lumia920 grey. Blurred photos, not satisfied on low light and it doesn't look natural, easily dented (it's not a tank) and the battery is not good.

    My priority is to capture good photos for my 2 years old daughter.

    The L920 is an overrated WP. Sorry.

    It will be 200 bucks in no time..

    Also, the camera tech alone is worth more than $300....
    It costs much more than $300 because there is an opportunity cost of not being able to get another phone for 18-24 months. You are giving up the ability to get a 1080p GDR3 phone this fall (if that happens) or an 8.1 phone early 2014. That's the main reason to hold back if you have a 920.

    If you've got a 920 already - then holding out a bit longer for 1020's reviews would be sensible.

    It's just beside the stunning camera - and AMOLED screen - it's not much extra you're getting?

    if we get a red 1020, then yes, i'll switch immediately. but if there is no red, I can wait a bit as my 920 is excellent right now.

    agree with you on some points:

    Dented, not really(dropped mine 3 storages in an staircase made of concrete.)
    Screen-scratches: the screen is as tuff as your usual butter slice
    Battery: getting better as you use it longer.
    Still, i dont need all the wireless charging and other extra sh*t when it makes your phone so heavy.

    My ideal 920:

    Gorilla glas 3
    Amoled
    Better camera

    So basically 1020 with 920 looks.

    Oh and a capable OS.

    I chose wp8 for 2 reasons, its looks and microsoft.
    Did not expect such a sluggishness from ms, but still satisfied with what wp8 does (smooth, good ms apps)
    Yea call me weird ;)

    Not even a year into a 2 year contract with my 920. In 18 months there will be something even better. The only significant spec that changed is the camera. And with only 32gb of ram, where do I store all those pictures? With limited data on AT&T seems pretty pointless. When my contract is up I will base my next purchase on who has better service/plan. Not so much on who has cooler phone. What good is a cool phone when your service limits how you use it? Rambling now... Shutting up.

    Although I've never had a single problem with my 920, I think I'm going to upgrade the minute the 1020 releases in Sweden. Since getting the 920 I've become more interested in photography and the 1020 is THE device to have for this in a smartphone formfactor.

    I might get one given it will release in september in the uk apparently so roughly 11 weeks since I get paid weekly, 64 saved a week should be enough lol. But that depends if Nokia announce something in the winter or not.

    I don't think anyone should abandon the 920 because the Lumia 1020 is the 1020 meaning an introduction to the Lumia 10xx series. Elop said that there will be a new phone in the fall during the Q&A at the live event so if you want a 920 successor then you should wait for the next 9xx phone. Besides by then specs will be upgraded.
    Oh really? when in the Q & A did he say that?

    I want the 1020, the camera is enough of an upgrade for me to relegate my 920 to a backup device, but Im having doubts purely due to the timing of the release. Im expecting late August for Vodafone UK (no news has been announced yet) and that is getting very near the traditional refresh time for MS and Nokia for the Autumn devices.
    Im actually hoping for a 1025 model which has a 1080 screen and quad core, so I might wait for a couple of months and then get one, or I might just crack and get one before then :-)

    Yes, I'm hoping all you guys buy this phone, that way when a better Nokia comes out by the end of the year i can buy your used 1020 because you (AGAIN) want to get the latest and greatest. Works out for me!

    Im ditching, better pictures of my daughter is never enough
    Yes, I need a better camera to take pics of my kid too (too lazy to take my DSLR at times). My 920 is good when the subject is close to the camera, but if they're far away, faces almost always looks blurry. Looking at the samples of the 1020 seems to suggest this is no longer an issue.

    Yep. 920 will be my backup device.
    This...but in my case will be the backup for both the wife and I since we both have 920's at the moment.

    Yep, I love my 920 but it is no match for the 1020 which is in a league of its own. That camera will be the best thing since sliced bread. Please don't take too long to come out unlocked.

    Hubby dropped and smashed the 820 I had bought for him before he could get a case. I'll be dressing my 920 up in a nice OtterBox for him once my 1020 arrives. :)

    I'm on the fence. I have no real reason to switch from my 920 but I am impressed by the camera and extra memory. The only thing holding me back is the thought of what could come out this fall.
    Oh my gosh! me too! I am not a camera person. I don't have one, and I don't really take pictures. But I will be going on holiday with my brother in August, and I really want to capture our adventure together. I am either gona have to buy a compact camera, or upgrade my 920 to the 1020.

    any advice, peoples?

    Four months ago, I got my 920 off the shelf, for about US$530, SIM-free. No way can I upgrade to a 1020 unless my printer miraculously decided it can print money!!
    Just have to grit my teeth and wait it out till the next Lumia. I'll just keep repeating to myself, once Amber and GDR2 is out over here, my 920 will feel like a new phone, and it'll be as good as the 1020.. ...except for the damn camera... . that DAMN camera !!!!!

    as for me i will wait and get the one after 1020, maybe it will have more storage (+64Gb) i don't mind the weight.
    I think Nokia must make versions with more storage for those willing to pay for it (extra) so that one can choose depending on your pocket,
    how much does it cost them to make a version with extra storage space?

    Nope. Here in India, no option for contracts etc... We have to pay outright the entire amount.
    Bought my phone in March, and definitely not looking to pay another $700 (Rs. 38000) for a better camera.

    if you have a 920 I say keep it and wait for the real upgrade and not just a 920 with a better camera.
