    I can't decide if I want to wait until June 2013 when I qualify for the subsidized rate or to blow $450 on this thing. Is it THAT much better than 7.5 right now?

    I'm coming from a White Lumia 900 with 7.5 on it and if I were in your boat, I'd probably wait. I mean yeah WP8 has a lot of very cool things going on but the 900 is a great phone. I love mine. When 7.8 hits the street (which could be soon if you believe the rumors) it'll give the 900 a lot of the same interface features. With all the goodies that WP8 has, it's the small tiles on the start screen that I think I love the most (which 7.8 will give you). Ultimately it's your decision. I got my Yellow 920 with a contract. If I hadn't been able to do that I'd have waited.

    Definitely. I am coming from a palm pre plus. I am absolutely enjoying my 920. It was a good decision for me!

    I wish I hadn't waited a few days after launch to buy mine. I had to leave Seattle to find one!

    For $99 and a free charging case, plus snagging one for the wife from Amazon for $49 I absolutely would. I think price is one significant factor (admittedly with a new contract) that reviewers mistakenly leave out.

    Well I had the S3 followed by Iphone 5, both do not come even close to my 920.
    This is the best phone I have ever owned, would buy it again even if I had to assemble it myself like one of those airplane construction kits ... lmao.

    To be completely honest, no I would not. I like the phone and I like the OS, but it's just too big for me. I dont understand the fascination with giant phones and huge screens, but I thought it would grow on me after a bit of use.... well it hasn't. If they offered a version that was similar in dimensions to the iPhone 5, I would have been perfectly happy. Due to the lack of apps that I want and the weight/size of this phone, i'm going to be leaving it for an iPhone. I'm not a apple fanboy either, I am coming from a Samsung Focus which I bought two years ago and enjoyed... but the apps never came that I wanted and I dont get the impression that they'll be on WP8 any time soon either.

    .... Back to the dark side I go :(

    You might qualify for an early upgrade discount of $100. I got my Lumia 900 on launch in April and I qualified. Then it's only $350.

    That said, I was prepared to wait. The only reason I jumped in was because my 900 got dropped hard about 3 weeks before the 920 came out and had a crack across the whole screen.

    I don't think you have anything to lose by waiting... that was my plan originally because I predicted (correctly) that there wouldn't be that many WP8 exclusive apps at launch anyway and we'd be waiting on updates and bug fixes, which we are. By June 2013 all of that should be well sorted, and there may even be a price drop on the 920 by then.

    Absolutely. I've not encountered any issues so far. My battery was a little crappy on Day 1 prior to a full charge but the overnight charge seems to have gotten rid of any issues. I get the same battery burn as my Lumia 900.

    Different strokes for different folks. Although I'd encourage you to check out the HTC 8X. I picked that up in store to play with it and was surprised by how well it felt in my hand. I ended up going with the 920 because of Nokia's superior exclusives.

    After not having a contract with att for almost 8 years.. (of 12 total years with att) Having probably every unlocked flagship Nokia phone as well as some unlocked galaxy droid phones.. I pulled the trigger and bought this phone and signed a new contract. Even though the cost of the plan is much higher than my prior grandfathered data, phone and messages packages--- totally worth it.

    I wish I would have bought it when it first came out. Im really excited to see how the OS evolves in the months and years to come. So far my phone has been working flawlessly. No dead pixels or heat or any of the other common complaints.

    Take care and good luck

    That's my problem too, Nokia has all the better apps and cool stuff that the 8X doesn't. I'll check it out at the store, but I'm pretty set on the iPhone 5.

    What are you missing? Check out the Navigon (by Garmin) Navigation with Augmented reality. Have it on my 8X, it is great.

    I returned my 920 to best buy today for an optimus G on sale for $100.

    The phone itself is amazing. Maybe the best actual phone out there.. but WP8 is just awful. It's so outdated and there's so many features I miss on Android, I just couldn't keep it. Also the lack of SD card sucks too. Even though it has 32gig internal which is great, but with the OS and apps , pictures.. etc.. there's not enough room f or my music.. and forget having a few movies on there. With other phones I can use 16gig internal + 32 or 64 external and fit everything.

    Anyways, the phone itself is probably a 9.5/10 in my book but the OS is a 4/10. The optimus g is a great piece of craftsmanship as well, so it's okay.

    No, I won't buy a 920 again. The lack of notifications, the constant reboots (thought it would disappear with updated OS, well, it did not), the lack of a proper Skype app (for crying out loud, Skype is owned by the very developper of this OS!!), etc... disgusted me of this phone, and the only reason I am still keeping it is that nobody wants to buy it from me for a decent price so that I can buy a decent phone.

    Having said that, the OS itself is beautiful, but that's about it unfortunately :(
