    Doesn't the 920 have a LiPo batterie like the 900? I remember seeing a pic of that somewhere. Though it doesn't matter much. They behave very similarly anyway.

    With some quick binging and googling all references I find about the battery indicate it's a Li-ion.

    That said, wasnt even aware that mobile phones have been having Li-pos recently.

    Hey, how's the SIM tray thingie? I'm not familiar with the N9-body SIM tray, I understood it needs some special tool to open the gate? Is that provided?

    I used to work at RIM and had a lot of communication with the battery team. For all lith-ion based designs and similar, including replacement chemicals designed to improve upon the standard lith ion reactions, the further you discharge the battery before recharging it, the shorter the battery's lifespan.

    There are dozens of reasons why, but are too many and too complex to explain in a short post. Suffice it to say, if you can charge the phone, regardless of current battery level, charge it. Even if it's only for 10 minutes. It is better for the battery.

    Well, I guess it's a LiPo then. I only found some fairly vague third party references to it with nothing even close to official, didnt realize to check for images though!

    Yes, that's the one I was talking about. The nokia website says the 920 uses BP-4GW battery. So the LiPo thing seems correct.

    Yes it is provided. Check out the unboxing videos. It's always placed under the 920 (a little piece of metal) when you take it out of the package.

    Is there any particular reason why this thread was not started under, or moved to, the Lumia 920 thread? This is clearly Lumia 920 focused, although there are questions being asked about WP8; but still, overwhelmingly, it is a Lumia 920 centric post.

    This has already been covered. MMS and APN settings are available when it used to only be APN settings.

    Also, I'm less concerned about Rogers getting their act together and getting more colours than I am about Rogers getting their act together and getting more ****ing 920s in stock. I have 14 stores in this city and not a single one has had, or has any WP8s.

    Yes the tool is provided with it. Very simple to pop in and out.

    I used to work at RIM and had a lot of communication with the battery team.

    From what I have studied in University about this topic, I can confirm that is true. The less time the battery spends charging in one time, the better as heat can't build up.

    I started the thread in the "heat of the moment" and this was also the first review of a WP8 so I thought I'd keep it general and post here.

    This way, not only Nokia fans get the exposure.

    I heard that only 40 phones were sold in all Canada on Tuesday when I got mine. The city I live in, Windsor, with 210,000 population, only received 2 UNITS!!

    Come on! :D Nokia is known for being the best out there in terms of signal, reception, and call quality. Nothing changes with the 920. Superb in this department.



    What do you mean? Please be more detailed.
    When adding a wireless network, can you check to to see if EAP TTLS is one of the available options for security types?

    No need for you to manually pick. WP8 will pick for you automatically without any headache setting it up.

    I connect to my university's EAP connection simply by putting my username and password.

    Yeah I know! It's awful. I live in Kitchener/Waterloo and not a single store has received any units or knows when they are getting them.

    That's fantastic news for me. WP7.5 cannot connect to my university's wireless at the moment, so I really do hope I can just connect to it with WP8

    Thanks for the videos mate. A couple of questions:
    -is there any light bleeding onto the screen from capacitive buttons? i had this problem on my lumia 900. Try to make the screen black but still on.
    -do the buttons stay on all the time? like the Tango-updated lumia 900
    -when you plug it in to the charger, does it start charging immediately, or is there a 5-10 sec delay, like on the 900?
    -is there a good range of volume from the speakers? my 900 has almost the same volume from 1/30 to 10/30.

    Yea. I don't believe your "Camera is not good at day"

    Dude. You can't just think that you can aim the camera at whatever and a miracle makes the photo look 10 times better. If you can take photos and have some experience, you can get photos like these. (Look far below)

    Dead. I mean mother****ing D E A D. It looks like these photos was taken with a Canon 5D.

    Haters gonna hate, keep pressing that 1/2 longer ***** up your *** and please do remember these wise words:

    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.
    Hmm. I guess I have to hold both phones before I can make a final decision.

    Edit: Nokia music IS available in Australia.

    My 900 running 7.5 had no problem with EAP neither. Not sure why you ran into trouble.

    I can't see any light bleeding. They seem to stay ON all the time so far.
    Sometimes there's still that delay yeah but no more than 4 seconds.
    Volume range from 1 to 10 is still almost the same with a slight improvement over the 900 but not by a whole lot. Still don't understand why they would do that and not fix it!!
