    Hey xsever, thank you so much for taking the time to do these reviews for all of us. You are doing the community a lot of good.

    A lot of these reviews are complaining about the weight of this device. I really wonder how this will affect the phone's usability. I am leaning towards the HTC 8X at this point. Will make a final decision once I get a hands on both these devices.

    I think I know the answer to this but just confirming. You had to set the time manually in your first video- assume that was because you didn't have the SIM card installed? Switching from iPhone - just assumed clock is set by the network?

    Much thanks for all that you've done as well. I just have one final question if this has not been answered already.

    How does this phone work as a point and shoot? Whether it's something cool you see on the streets and wanna get a pic to snapping a quick photo with some friends?

    Thanks so much for making this video! Looks super smooth and sharp. The OIS works great. I didn't even notice when you changed hands!

    One thing I notice is that the colors are still changing a bit through the video. I'm guessing that is because of the auto exposure still being on. If you have a sec could you do one more short vid with all the auto settings off?

    (Sorry if it sounds like I'm being picky. I went to school for video production and work at a video compression company so I'm a pretty uptight about video quality. :) Good luck in school btw!)

    Here are probably the first pictures of the phone from a consumer.

    Purchase Story:

    I called my Rogers Store in Windsor, Ontario, Canada around 11:30 A.M. EST and they said they just received 2 Lumia 920.

    I got there at 12:00 P.M. and bought the first one. The phone off-contract was $600 + 13% tax = $678.

    I made some of the video reviews right away in my car filming with my Lumia 900.

    I hope what's below helps answering your questions.

    NEW Various pictures taken today inside and outside: http://sdrv.ms/StOVCl



    Quick notes/answers:
    1.No info on whether bluetooth is 4.0 or not. No mention in the manual nor the box.
    2.Nokia Counters app can't be downloaded yet. It says the app needs features the phone doesn't have. (ironic)
    3.Battery gets warmer than the 900's when being charged. It is also more towards the top of the phone.
    4.No Macro Focus mode in the camera and no Contract setting neither. I always had my 900's camera contract at High.
    5.Can't add Whatsapp notification to Lockscreen. Whatsapp developers need to update their app.
    6.Mobile Network setting has add internet apn and mms apn
    7.Backup options: app list+settings, text messages, photos.
    8. Phone can take clear pictures of books/text while my 900 used to struggle getting a clear focus.
    9. Multitasking and resuming apps is definitely very very fast.
    10. So far, WIFI still turns OFF 30 seconds after the phone sleeps.
    11. GPS is lightning fast and the phone has Nokia Drive Beta+ version 2.0.0.1189 and map version is 8.0.47.123
    12.Facebook app notification count on tile and lockscreen are stuck at 3 although I already saw the notifications and they are cleared inside the app (PUSH still a hit/miss with WP)
    13. I would have loved a feature when you can tap on the notification on the lock screen and it would tell you who called you or who the message/email is from. Now you only see the icon with a number but without other info.
    14.First LTE Speed test on Rogers Wireless LTE Network with 2 signal bars: 12.6Mbps download and 6Mbps upload with 161ms latency
    15. Frequency bands listed on the box:WCDMA850/900/1900/2100/1700_2100 LTE700/850/1900/1700_2100 GSMQUAD
    16.Other 920 users are claiming the ones sold by Rogers are FACTORY UNLOCKED. I will verify this as soon as I can get my hands on a non-Rogers micro sim card.

    17.I tried my in-ear headset in both the 900 and the 920 playing the same song and the results are very very similar. The audio was crisp clear and the bass was very rich. (Not an audio expert)
    18. Macro Focus Mode is not an option anymore because of OIS. Instead there is a Focus Assist Light which helps the camera focus.
    19.Phone gets warmer than the Lumia 900 above the camera when in heavy use / long charging time.
    20. I just put a Fido sim card in it and it worked and I was able to make a phone call and even got 3G (since Fido doesn't have LTE yet).
    Therefore, the early batch of Lumia 920s sold by Rogers are FACTORY UNLOCKED!
    Hi:

    Wonderful and detail info of the Lumia 920!!
    Would like to know can ii be able to make a video call without Tango/Skype software?
    I mean use the carrier 3g network to make the video call.(Samsung/LG can do that...)

    Sincerely

    How about the live tiles notifications for other apps (like Whatsapp)? Are they still unreliable/delayed like WP7.5?

    The phone's weight, in my opinion, is nothing to worry about given the phone's shape, the curve on the back, the soft glass, and overall, the way it fits in your hand.

    You really feel like you have a nice piece of hardware in your hand. So the extra 20g over the 900 is nothing to worry about.

    All these people dissing the phone for the weight are not being real at all. The phone sits perfectly in the hand and the 4.5 inch screen is very manageable with one hand compared to the S3, which I tried, and which requires enormous hand.


    I think I know the answer to this but just confirming. You had to set the time manually in your first video- assume that was because you didn't have the SIM card installed? Switching from iPhone - just assumed clock is set by the network?
    Correct.

    Haven't added music yet to the phone. Will let you know some time this weekend.

    Works amazingly well. All AUTO settings are way better than the 900. If you want to squeeze better details, then you can manually adjust the settings, but pocket-to-picture speed and quality are phenomenal as you can see in most pictures on my Skydrive.

    Hi XSEVER, I am now in Fido and would like to buy Rogers 920 outright and then use it in Fido's LTE network. Would you please try Fido sim card in this phone and find whether LTE network is available? I think that in your area, LTE in Fido is available. Thanks!

    The FIDO micro sim card I tried worked and I was making a call, but all I got was 3G (at home). I never get LTE at home neither even on Rogers so that might explain.

    LTE should work just fine since Rogers and Fido use the same towers.

    I was wondering what the filesystem is formatted as? is it FAT or NTFS? Just curious about file size limitations.

    try to drop a file larger than 4gb on it..if it immediately fails, it is FAT(32)

    Thanks for answering all our questions!!!


    EDIT: I guess Generic Hierarchical IS a file system type! did not know that before, and it looks like large files will work on it, as that is what my CM9 touchpad says and it lets me!

    I own a CM9 Touchpad too and I can drop big files on it. I guess we're good!
