We went to a party together tonight and this guy was flirting with me and we were chatting and my friend pulls out his phone and starts texting....the guy i'm talking to immediately noticed the phone and was asking a bunch of questions about the phone....

    I have my 920 and I'm in the Army. We're out right now on a field training exercise and I picked up my phone and was checking it. Two guys walk over and ask if its the new Windows Phone. I say yeah and let one of them hold it. After scrolling down my start screen he literally says "Holy S***! I love that interface" I was pretty happy after that.

    I've had this experience twice now. First was when I was sitting in the dentist's chair waiting for my mouth to 'numb' up before getting some work done on my teeth. While I waited I pulled out the 920 and started playing some angry birds and the assistant and dentist both walked by and said something like, "Whoa...what phone is that? That's awesome!" So, I showed it off a best (as best as I could do with a quickly numbing mouth.

    The next was this past Sunday as I saw one of the new families at church messing around with his new iPhone 5 and he asked what phone I used and I showed him my 920. He was ga-ga over it. I was quite surprised how he reacted to it. He loved the screen, the tiles, and the build. Unfortunately he's a big-whig at the hospital in town and the phones come directly from his employer so he probably won't get to have a 920 anytime soon (especially since he just got the iPhone 5...).

    The youth at church really like it too. Though, one of the girls (who is used to her dad's iPhone) thinks the phone is 'too confusing.' Which I interpret as, "Man, that's different than what I'm used to..."

    well, my iPhone friend stopped mocking me with "Wow, that's a huge phone". When he pulls out his iPhone I always say: "Wow that's a tiny phone"....

    I work in IT and I'm surrounded by ohone geeks, so almost every day someone asks me about my red 920. I call it the "anti-iPhone". I was ecstatic the day I uninstalled iTunes from every PC we have!
    Uninstalling iTunes was a glorious day. :D
    Have had iOS device since first gen iPod touch and after selling my new iPad some weeks ago i haven't had Apple device, or iTunes. It's unbelievable how horrible iTunes imo is. Never owned mac so i don't know if it's better there.

    That's exactly what it is. There's not really two easier mobile UI's to pick up outside of WP and iOS.

    Where I live everyone is so jaded by material reality that no one cares anymore. You could be using an iphone 8 prototype that is see-through and glows neon and no one would even flinch.

    Edit: I really need to get out of here.

    I've been propping the 920 up for months on Social Media in preparation for my purchase (previous iPhone 3GS user) and received a TON of kickback from Apple fanboys. So I was laughing when I finally got it and all the fanboys I know were lined up to get a look at it. Not a single one had a bad thing to say, which is impressive considering how rabid these guys are towards Apple.

    As far as people just seeing it and responding, I had it out after a reception the other day and one of my fellow bank employees asked what it was. (I have a White 920) I told her it was a Windows Phone and gave her the quick and dirty tour. The next day she called and told me she had bought one.

    I spread the word as much as possible. The more converts we have, the more likely the platform will be successful and of course that there will be app consistency throughout the stores.
