    Even though my first 920 was defective (band across the front with no touch), I am not bothered and love my Lumia. That is what warranties are for. As for the daylight photos, from what I understand, it should be fixable with firmware updates, and as they did on the 900, they look like they address the issues in a reasonable amount of time. I saw Nokia send out updates more than any other company. Heck, I never got any updates on my Samsung Focus to correct the disappearing keyboard. Nokia seems to stand behind their products and step up to the plate to fix issues quickly. If we have to wait a little bit for fixes, it is no big deal. My daughter has an HTC Freestyle. Although it is a very well build and durable phone, it has fatal texting issues that HTC has admitted to, but after a year and a half, have failed to do anything to address.

    The two longest threads on this forum are about people who are upset they don't already have their Lumia 920 in-hand.

    I'd say that's a sign that this phone is amazing.

    Personally, I haven't had any of the problems that have been posted here. The Lumia 920 is awesome. :)

    Do keep in mind that people aren't necessarily going to create threads saying "My Lumia 920 is performing exactly as I expected it to, post here if yours is too!" People will come and whine if they have problems. So reading a forum like this isn't exactly the most accurate representation. If you go to a forum for every phone, you'd think EVERY phone sucked reading them.

    If you only want to read "great" things about a product you're considering:

    A) Stay out of the forums dedicated to said product.
    B) Only visit the manufacturers website of said product.

    By and large tech forums are for people who are trying to sort out problems.

    This is by far the best overall package of a phone I've had.

    Here are the last 5 phones I've had:

    Samsung Galaxy S3
    Iphone 4s
    Galaxy Nexus
    Droid X
    HTC Evo


    The feel of this phone is amazing; it's solid and feels like a premium device

    WP8 is really responsive with no lags. Battery life has been incredible. I unplug when i go to sleep, use it heavily throughout the day with gmail/enterprise email push on. When i get home around 6 my battery is still over 50%. None of the devices mentioned above could last a day w/o plugging in.

    There could be minor annoyances like no fast forward function and daylight camera issues. But at the end of the day i'm sure there will be a fix for it.

    Best all around phone up to date.

    lol, you want a phone and reconsider because you are reading a forum where people complain things? Thats what the forum is for and that is what humans do. We always talk about the bad things, not the good things. Go and get one, try it for free for 14 days (you can give it back.. contract will be canceled etc). Make your own opinion and don't take the opinions from a forum which is focusing of problems.

    Let's assume a device has a 1% bug rate.

    sells 500 devices = 5 buggy device and 5 user reports on forum.
    sells 5000 devices = 50 buggy device fails and 50 user reports on forum.
    sells 50000 devices = 500 buggy device fails and 500 user reports on forum.

    The more popular the device, the more people will report bugs.

    He has his mind made up, and just wanted to let people know.

    Hats off to the guy for reading 230,000+ posts, though.

    If those are your two issues, I am about to make (half) your day. The skip forward and backward buttons work as FF and RW if you press and hold them. Tapping them skips.

    I've had the 920 for all of 2.5 days now and I am probably going to trade it in for the 8X just due to the form factor, but that's just me and my own personal preference. I may chicken out in the end and end up keeping the 920.

    My battery life has been excellent, it lasts more than a day with LTE along with doing plenty on the phone. I haven't had any of the issues with battery life others have mentioned. My phone has had no reboots since I first turned it on except the one time I reset it to the factory defaults.

    Build quality the vibration rattle is somewhat annoying. My phone also has a slight light leak on the lower left hand side of the screen bezel. Other than that it is a very solid phone.

    I have a number of software niggles but I know those are software issues and not hardware.

    I would have no problem recommending the phone to anyone.

    I would have done the same if I read it first, and I don't know yet if I would have been grateful for that or not.

    I like the prettiness of the HTC took and have the HTC One X and had the HTC Vivid and HTC Inspire. But, for $100 more you get half the storage. That is a negative for me.

    The uninspiring day light performance of the camera is simply unforgivable. It's the ONLY real thing Lumia 920 has going for it. Nokia made it sound like some second coming of the camera. After all that to release a camera that under performs, especially compared to iPhone 5 and Galaxy S III which are in no way proper camera phones, is simply unforgivable.

    Where is the OTA update to solve this? It's clearly just a minor software issue so just bring the OTA out. I'm sure when they do, AT&T will take 6 months to approve it.
    I haven't had the horrible problems with the camera that some others have. To replicate the blurriness people are getting I have to seriously unsteady my hand. That said, daytime pics still leave soemthing to be desired. Will we get an update? Who knows. I am fairly sure that MS doesn't have to wait for AT&T though. Wasn't that sort of the point? There actually isn't any preloaded software baked into the OS AFAIK; it's all downloaded on first boot of the phone. So MS should be free to push updates to all phones just like Apple does, day one.
