    I'm loving this phone, the screen is amazing! The changes to the ease of access settings are very welcome. The tiny text size on WP7.5 was a deal breaker for my partner and drove her to a GS3 but now she is looking to get an 820.

    The only niggling problems I have are the vibrate which sounds faulty compared to my old Lumia 800 and I still cant select 'all' emails to delete at once.

    I have zero complaints with the 920. I have a complaint that Nokia hasn't released a gel case for it yet.

    Did you check if there are any background apps running?.. I heard that Nokia Drive runs in the back ground and drains battery.
    Yeah, I disable Drive from running in the backround when it keep giving me directions after I had left my car. I was like WTF is that noise? LOL (Drive wasn't in my recently open apps either extending my momentary confusion)

    Love the phone overall. I'll be headed back to the store to make sure my clunking noise is typical for this phone. I dislike how long it takes to charge. I plugged in my surface and 920 up last night at the same time from dead batteries (920 had a wall charger, not usb to the surface). 60 minutes later the surface was full and ready to go, 920 was at 49%.

    Literally the only thing I don't like. Everything else is amazing. I've used multiple android, BB, web os, and iOS devices. WP8 is the best hands down.

    I love mine (android convert), My wife loves her (blackberry curve convert), my son loves his (android convert).

    My only little annoyance stems from the fact i am coming from an unlimited plan from sprint, to a 3GB plan at AT&T and there isn't an easier way to toggle the data & wi-fi on/off without going into settings.

    I just turned in a LG Optimus G for this and have to say that I am very happy.
    Interested as to why you chose to turn in the LG?

    This was my "second" option - but previous experience with all three platforms made me still move towards the L920 - (Completely done now with iOS, Android is still a bit of a fragmented mess (best is the Nexus line - which the Nexus 7 is an awesome tablet for the price - but still has it's own issues)).

    For me the ultimate decision was the price: $99 for the phone and charger was too hard to pass up.

    Try shaking it up and down or side to side. Other people have said that theirs do it and it's just the camera. Others have told me their returned, defective unit did it and their new one doesn't make quite the same noise. So I can't really tell if there's something wrong with mine or not.

    There's an app called network dashboard, by purity consulting, pinable to start, just what you're looking for. And no, I'm no associated lol, I've just used it and it works great.

    It took long for the phone to charge when i first got it, Once it was fully charged it lasted me from friday night to this morning with like 30% left, i plugged it in about 20 min ago and its almost fully charged.

    I absolutly love this phone, I had a Titan before this one, and I had a Surround before that. This is hands down the best windows phone I have ever owned. ( I bought the red 920)

    Funny thing is a stopped by my old computer shop i used to work at, and all my buddys there have iphones, I showed them my phone and i couldnt get it back lol, 2 of them were thinking of switching to ATT to get this phone. ;)

    I got mine the minute the store opened on Friday. I've given it two overnight charges now and it doesn't seem to be getting any quicker :(. Battery life has been great though. My ip4 (after two years use) gave me 3 hours of web browsing. I've been on mine now, without the screen going black once, for about an hour now and I'm at 97%. Pretty good if you ask me.

    How are you charging the phone? Wirelessly? Through a wall outlet? Through a PC?

    and I would agree with the battery life, Between friday night and sunday morning, I was installing/using apps, texting, calling people, playing music via bluetooth in my car, web browsing, using smartglass for netfix(because I feel like a bad *** doing it via the phone lol)

    I will say the last 2 WP7 devices have had really good battery life, **** even my HTC Tilt 2 running 6.5 was pretty good.

    We have been using the Samsung Focus and Focus S for the last 2 years. Before that we had the HTC Tilt. The 920 brings a new and exciting experience to mobile phone and is more like a mobile computer in your pocket. It runs much faster than the Focus and the display is vivid and beautiful. The outdoor pictures and video that I took on Saturday at the park are amazing for a camera phone. The home screen really does allow you to make the phone yours. It give you what you want to see or access fast. I did enjoying having the option to pop in a battery on the Focus and always had a couple of spare batteries with me. Not sure what the trade off when they designed the 920 and the thinking behind the none removable battery. This is the only thing that I will need to learn the new way of managing my power usage , but that is minor concern for me. I still went out and got 2 more 920's this weekend for my wife and daughter. Both you had not put the phones down yet. Oh and the call quality calls sound very clear and have much better connection at home. We did stop and the ATT store and saw the HTC 8s but it was thin on the edges and had a very plastic feel and look, plus the Nokia map apps and City View app and worth the phone alone. Don't let the Fruits and (Clones) cloud your mind, see the phone and use it for a couple of day it, you will love it and be happy with your life.

    I've been using the wall charger. I tried it through my surface once and it was even worse.

    Coming over from the iPhone 4 I have had no issues. Battery life is good, no dead pixels, no noises that sound like it is coming apart, ect. Reading the forums here I don't want to jinks myself though. It is too early for my to give my final verdict on the phone, but so far I like it.

    ... besides me? :P
    When a product comes out the people upset are the most vocal. There only a few ways to say you like something, but a million to say you dislike something. .

    Plus we got a lot of new posters complaining about problems because they probably wanted to see if it was just them.

    Going to say I'm complaining. There are too many things that really should not be going on in this phone, and I'm strongly considering returning it and going back to my Lumia 900 til they are fixed. Here's the list:

    1) Strange battery. For two days, no problems. Today, with no use, it's at 67% without any use.

    2) Xbox music is ... awkward. When I go to songs and hit "Phone" instead of "All" and hit the shuffle play button, it should not be pulling from all.

    3) Xbox Video is broken. Can't get any videos to play on my 920 without "cannot get usage rights for this media" Everyone is having this problem.

    4) Messaging is broken. I'm getting no notifications when I get a new message.

    5) GPS might be running a lot in dumb scenarios. Try going to the Me Tile and the location dot pops up. There's no reason for it to keep running in the background if I hit the Start button, but yet, there is it. Assuming it's just sucking down battery the whole time doing GPS stuff while it's there. Driving/Maps GPS, sure- I can understand that running in the background, but the Me Tile? Just dumb.

    I just got back from att. The lady called in support for me. They say from dead, expect it to take no more than 4 hours. Mine has proven ~2 hours more than once now. She also said if you have apps open in the background it will take longer too. I didn't know hitting the back arrow closes everything... Or that it would make a difference in charging, but apparently it does. Also, all the display units made the same clunky noise as mine when I shook them. I don't think I have a faulty device anymore. Thank God ( you know I had to return my first surface, and then my second one, do to factory defects...)

    As stated before, most of the "complaints" around here are from people trying to make sure they aren't alone. I'm not upset knowing it takes a while to charge, or that shaking it vigorously makes a noise- as long as my phone isn't a dud.

    MOST people aren't complaining about it. Think about how many people here have one...and how many have posted complaint threads?

    The thing is, most people don't post a thread to say "everythings fine with my phone and I really like it"

    BTW, everything is just fine with my 920 and I really like it. ;)

    The phone itself is a 10/10, it exceeded my expectations (which were very high) and is a joy just to hold and look at.

    WP8 is a 7/10, while it improved a lot the biggest problems still exist and really makes you wonder when is MS going to wake up. Biggest problems? Multi-tasking, apps, customization, and functionality. Biggest advantages over other OS? Performance, battery life, Bing (My favorite feature by far), Social integration, beautiful interface, Office, and SkyDrive.
