    The 920 comes with a charging pad -- a plastic disk that connects to the mains and sits on your desk

    Well, no?
    Maybe only in the UK? =/

    I'm not terribly worried about app selection. I know the basics are covered and I always carry my Nexus 7 in my purse anyway. Between the two, I'll be good.

    A pitiful app selection would be like a thousand apps. 120,000+ and growing is not bad at all.

    The app selection is an issue. I have a L900 and an iPhone4. The apps are not as good on WP. Simple as that. Like many of you I am desperately hoping that windows 8 will fix this. WP8 needs the fad apps as soon as they launch because people like to play games with their friends at school/work. If this known issue is the only "real" problem with the 920 it seems like an extremely solid phone and the review doesn't paint it as a bad phone at all. Seemed pretty positive. No idea why you guys jump straight down the reviewers throat just because it compares the app selection with the more mature app stores.That is exactly what consumers will do and obviously the WP store isn't yet on the same level as the play store and app store. . People don't buy in for the future of an ecosystem, they buy for whats available NOW. Sadly I won't be able to get the 920 but it is great to see windows phones get great hardware. I want WP to succeed as much as anyone of you, that doesn't mean I am going to defend an obvious shortcoming of the platform.

    You just got him off with your comment. Lol.

    I'm going to wait for a review from a trusted site. You know, the one that gives the 920 a great review.
    So a biased review? Hah

    yup, just the first one to praise it as the best smartphone. ;-)

    Might be waiting awhile...

    I'm sorry but Blackberry reigns in "pitiful" app selection. If any OS deserves that title, it would be RIM.

    And actually it was a glowing review. Someone just pointed out the bad journalism, but the trolling for Anti-Nokia still thrives on this forum

    The funny thing is that two of the biggest anti-Nokia Pro-HTC trolls have already said they are getting a Nexus 4 instead. So they are either young children, or just begging for internet attention.

    Exactly. My curve 8530 wasn't the best experience (due to Sprint's spotty network) and my 9330 didn't last long, but you don't see me perusing Crackberry and posting mindless garbage on their site. I leave it alone. Same for Android Central. If you got another device and you aren't pleased with the current selection, please click on any of the sister sites that applies. It's honestly ruining the experience. Fluck this talk about how the main members are "biased Nokia worshippers". I think at this point, I think I would like to settle to have an event roll around with more positive excitement versus repetitive topics rehashing the same lines over and over. But unfortunately, the internet is always that way

    Fortunately within two weeks both the 920 and 8X should be out in the U.S. And most of it should stop.

    I have an iPhone 4 at the moment so I just laugh when someone calls me a Nokia fanboy.

    Same here, and I've held my statement about waiting for the second generation and currently own an iPhone 5. Must be something in the water

    And if the 920 is so horrible, why does this forum have more hits compared to the other OEM forums? Oh.

    "Pitiful" as in they still don't have Pandora and Words with Friends, of all things. They don't have recent favorites like Bad Piggies and Letterpress either. There was enough drama among rapidfire tech news sites over whether or not Angry Birds Space would be released on WP7. Speaking of which, it is almost 2013. 100k apps later and a whole host of popular apps, many I've already mentioned, still not on WP. The app count doesn't matter, but in this case it is more than indicative about how lacking the WP selection is. Sure there are "alternatives" to almost everything, but it's like drinking RC Cola when everyone else has Coke. Or getting pissed at the ugly-ness that is Wordfeud and pining for some friends to play against, since no one else has the game.

    BTW the camera criticism is also true. It reminds me of the Lumia 800/900's camera, which was also low detail and blurry. I've already seen enough user shots and now review shots to make that conclusion. The night shots are brighter and clearer, and the video capture is fantastically smooth and blur-free. Those are the Lumia 920's strengths. The iPhone 5 still has the best detail and clarity. The 920 has its OIS. Nokia should've ditched their own sensors and used the Sony BSI sensor that everyone else is already using. That plus the OIS would've made it the top dog.
    Majority of that first paragraph applies to Blackberry, which still lacks in apps and has less in their market than Windows Phone. So again, who deserves the title?

    Nokia Lumia 920 review | Expert Reviews

    "Web browsing is as snappy as you'd expect. The phone managed a reasonable six hours and 56 minutes of video playback in our battery test, which is significantly better than the HTC 8X's meagre five and a half hours. "

    Would like some decent battery tests that shows how other phones fared in the same tests.. Video playback for 7h straight on a cellphone is hardly a good measure of anything.

    If it lasts longer than my lumia 800 im happy, and im happy with my lumia 800. My friend has a Galaxy 3 and sometimes claims 2 and a half days battery life...but I suspect he doesn't use it like I use my phone (im always on it)

    I can get a day and a half easily out of my 800. Anyway, this is all academic, I can't even bloody buy one at the moment! No sim free and exclusive to some tin pot new network with ridiculous prices!

    So far the only knock on the 8X and 920 is the poor app selection & ergonomics. So this is essentially telling us that if WinPhone 8 had the same app selection as iOS it would be the vastly superior mobile ecosystem and the 8X & 920 would be the best mobile phones on the market?

    That's what I'm getting from the early reviews.

    tell your friend that that is bulllcrap I had a Galaxy S3 unless you put the brightness all the way down I don't see the battery lasting 2 and a half days, I sold my S3 recently and in 1 day at the end of the day had 40% left so possibly he gets it until the next day and the phone needs to be plugged in but no way another half a day, unless he turns off his phone half the day.

    I definitely wish reviews pop up already online, from rogers to see how it is, of course AT&T didnt get it yet but I assume it would be the same.
