    My first one from launch day was getting VERY hot to the touch but there was nothing else wrong. I exchanged it and now my new 920 runs mostly cool and if playing games for a long time gets slightly warm. The only bad thing is this one has that rattle when on vibrate. I hardly ever use vibrate so I am ok with it.

    I'm still happy with mine. My phone rattles when it vibrates but to me that is more of a design issue and its annoyance or lack thereof is subjective. All of the features work well and since I did a flash of the AT&T firmware detailed in the sticky on how to revive a bricked Lumia I have not had any of of the nagging errors I had previously. Heat is not an issue and after draining the battery and recharging it I get over a day's worth of usage on the phone.
    So do you think maybe that the majority of the issues arrise because of improperly flashed software?

    I think my batch was 1.5, since I have no issues with my yellow 920.

    Got mine on ATT launch day and I still have it. No problems other than the battery getting hot during the first few cycles.

    I had to get a replacement due to the wireless charging function not working.

    I still have mine & my wife still has hers. No issues thus far, save for some dust/lint covering the front-facing camera, which is fairly annoying. Considering swapping it, but I figure it'll just happen again.

    Got mine at local AT&T store; works great; best phone I've ever owned. Noticed a comment about being slippery...it is. To remedy that I bought a thin black case for about $3.00 that has rubberized coating; not slippery. For even more safety, I added a small lanyard strap (the kind you get with cameras). All I had to do was drill a small hole in the case and attach. It's now a perfect phone AND camera. And the camera is fantastic; blows away some of my digital cameras!

    I'm still on my first matte black phone, but it suffers from those stupid marking on the back. Seems to be a common problem according to Nokia.

    We need a second poll asking how many people who returned their phone did it for legitimate reasons, and how many did it because they thought their battery was faulty when it wasn't, or because of a software problem or because of some minuscule blemish or perceived imperfection that most people wouldn't even notice. I bet that represents at least 1/2 of the people who returned their phones based upon the things I've read on this forum.

    still have mine, despite dust under the front camera, screen slightly raised at bottom right (not seated correctly), scratch on screen, and heat markings on the back i would rather not deal with the time of trying to get another and none of these things really matter to me. It does everything else right.

    I still have mine. The only "defect" I had worry about was some packaging adhesive that wouldn't come off easily! I had better luck this round than with my 900

    Still have mine, though it rattles on vibrate, knocks when you shake it, and has dust under the camera. None of these issues have given me real concern to return it though, maybe if it turns out to be a real issue I will address it with Nokia.

    Got my Cyan 11/13. No major issues. I have the dreaded screen scratches and noticed dust under the FF camera. Battery life has been great since disabling LTE. Also not one reboot.

    Have mine for 3 weeks, still going strong.

    When I first purchased the phone, the battery was draining very quickly.

    First and Foremost, try setting the screen to Auto brightness. Having it high will destroy your battery.
    Also, turn off the tap+send feature. I'll only turn it on when I need to.

    I have wifi on at all times, as well as bluetooth. With the above changes, my battery life has been much much better.

    how many did it because they thought their battery was faulty when it wasn't
    One should not need to figuratively do a voodoo dance to get their battery to work. Every other mobile device gets plugged in, and then works. If this was not the case those that returned did in fact have a battery issue. Moreover companies received these phones back, accepting the issue. So while there may have been a technical issue that could be overcome there was little way to know this beyond coming to WP Central and reading through threads and threads of information.

    Anyways to the point at hand I returned mine after 14 days. First nine days were good, then I went to a city where there was LTE and the thing got uncomfortably hot, particularly for a six hundred dollar device I bought off contract. I am back on my 900. Am waiting to play with an ATIV S now, and if I do not like it I will go back to the 920. Kind of got burned when I got the 900 (didn't work on my network for a week, and WiFi sharing hasn't worked for months) and then had issues with the 920. I appreciate being an early adopter comes with a small amount of issues but I am starting to feel a bit burnt. And not by the back of the 920 <G>
