    I'm with Tmo so I can't speak to the 920 as I have the 8X. But I am loving WP8 and my 8X. Other than a few restarts its been a great phone.

    On my second Lumia. Went back to Android, realized Windows Phone is better and traded back for a Lumia. The one I got was a little beat up so I got a warranty replacement.

    Yes. I've owned 5 smartphones before this one: OG Droid -> HTC Thunderbolt (that one was a mistake) -> Samsung Galaxy Nexus -> HTC One X/Lumia 900 (switched between them every so often, usually kept HTC One X as I'm a photographer and like to have a decent camera on me) -> Lumia 920. I have had no issues with mine: no overheating, no dust under cameras, I can take great pics (although, just like any camera, it takes a bit of getting use to), and I can usually pull a couple of days of battery, and that's with: youtube vids, music across bluetooth, tons of pics, texts, emails (2 accounts syncing every 30 minutes), phone calls, games, and SOME tethering (usually just when I'm at work and using my tablet, sometimes at a friend's place who has TERRIBLE Internet speeds). Seriously, this phone is a beast. The build quality is superb, and I'd say unmatched since my OG Droid (that thing was a freaking tank). Seriously, I like EVERYTHING about this phone. There's nothing that has disappointed me, and I'm glad I made the full switch from Android to WP.

    Edit: put 4 instead of 5 smartphones, and fixed some grammar.

    Edit 2: I also have weather syncing constantly. Almost forgot that.

    A resounding YES! Everyone has pretty much mention all the reason I love the 920.
    Coming from an iPhone, I can get over how smooth WP8 is. Every app opens lightening fast. Something that is ALWAYS remarked about when people ask me to show them my phone.
    You know, with all 700,000 apps available to me when I had my iPhone, I never had trouble putting it down. Not the same with my Lumia 920.
    It is quite literally always with me. Its perfect integration into social networks and amazing email interface keeps me connected to my clients and my friends in ways that were FAR MORE intuitive than on an iOS device.
    Lastly, 99% of the apps I had on iOS are on my 920 and function better on WP8. In fact, I had to jailbreak my iPhone to almost get the feel and functionality I have with my 920.

    Just throwing this out there, my 920 is showing signs of wear and tear, but that is due to me having a few too many drinks one night. All in all this phone is awesome! My wife and I (notice the dual responsibly here) put mine in the washing machine and we realized it about 10 minutes after the load started... Very scary moment, but here I am today typing this response on my phone! I must say, something that can put up with my abuse and take a swim for 10 minutes is a-ok in my book!!! I'm very happy with this phone!

    I think we've all, unfortunately, been there for that terrifying moment when you realize your phone is still in the pocket of the pants you wore yesterday just after starting laundry. Oy, I freaked once with my T-bolt, but luckily, the load didn't call for those pants, yet (jeans are usually last to be washed around here, and they happened to be a pair of jeans).

    You do realize 10% is a huge number.
    I think you just need to exchange your Lumia and get one with no problems, then you won't be so bitter, Nokia cs is awesome !

    I tell my family to get iPhone because it works. I can't stand anything Apple but I know they won't be disappointed with hardware or software for their needs.
    HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAH

    omg


    HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAH

    lol

    You drank too much Apple koolaid if you think iphones have less issues than the current Lumia phone.

    iphones 5 = crap battery life, poor construction, poor reception, camera issues...

    On top of that Windows Phone is way easier to use than iOS.

    I only direct people to Apple is a specific app they NEED is iphone only. Other than that I steer them clear of the market hype phone.

    Heck yes! Wireless charging, super sensitive touch (great for industrial enivornments that require gloves), Nokia Maps (with offline), Nokia Drive, Nokia Music (free without ads - with offline music lists up to 4), exclusive apps, etc.

    I have owned 11 smartphones since 2005 and this is by far the best one. It has great image and video quality. I got my wife and myself one and some of the integration (sharing grocery lists for example) is so slick it amazes me. I am really starting to like my visual voicemail as well. These aren't necessarily specific to the 920, but this phone puts it all together in a stunning package. I have received several compliments on my phone when I have it out at meetings and such.

    There are only 2 things I missed from my Android phone:
    - Gmail app, seriously, in the current state, there is no way to use my Gmail Priority Inbox feature. I just really need it.
    - Google voice app, we have Metrotalk, but it still use your minute, not your data. :))

    1 more things, app list must be improved, I'd like to have some way to sort it other than just alphabetically (most recent downloaded, for example).

    That's it. Sophisticated design, best camera. Whenever I take it out from my pocket, I feel like a man. :((

    I have and turned folks on to the 920. I let them know about its quirks and lack of apps compared to apple and android, bit with my negatives against the phone, there are 3x positives that I mention. So far so good with me.

    I've had a black AT&T Lumia 920 since launch day in the US and have had zero problems with it. I'd recommend the hardware 100%. I will hopefully be able to recommend WP8 to the general public when it's had a chance to mature a bit. Seeing how you're coming from a WP device already and are happy with it, I'd say go for it - it's such a great phone.

    I will definitely recommend the phone, but not the OS at its current state 'App wise', too many missing apps that will probably will never make it to WP8.

    Since you already use WP, I don't have to go into the whole app thing, which is the biggest issue for me.

    I own an iPhone 5, a Nexus 4 and the Lumia 920 (I let someone talk me into teaching smartphone classes).

    Of the three, the iPhone 5 offers the most solid performance. By far the best battery life (I usually have around 30% left after a day's worth of heavy usage), a decent camera, very good reception, large app selection. Of the three, the iPhone 5 is also the most boring phone to use. It has a small, uninviting screen (sure, it looks good but I'm talking usability here). I have the phone around because my home automation system comes with an iOS app and because of the iOS classes.

    The Nexus 4 is a much more intriguing device than the iPhone because it offers better customizability, a much more useful screen size equally great speed and an even bigger (or so I just read) app selection. Battery life isn't great (pretty much exactly the same as the Lumia's) and the camera is just ok. It's actually quite good in decent light but sucks in low light situations. I like using it but since Google has switched to bully-mode, I'm currently trying to move away from the Google services package.

    The Lumia 920 isn't very well-rounded. It has fairly poor battery life (I normally get the "critically low battery life" warning around 8 p.m.), I can't get it to charge in my car while using nokia drive, the app selection is abysmal, notifications don't work for most apps (Skype, Facebook, whatsapp), the screen scratches easily. However, I just can't seem to put it down. Despite all the shortcomings, it's by far the most fun to use. It's been my daily driver ever since I got it. I can't really tell you why, which makes it hard for me to recommend it to anyone, but I simply like it best.

    Maybe so, but there seems to be little doubt these phones have some serous issues. Honestly if Nokia was upfront and notified owners that they have some issues, things would be far better. What can you do that's business in the 21st, If you deny a problem exists, there is no problem.

    i dont care much about the app selection. i just need whatsapp and a good browser. i dont see the point of most apps honestly, a good mobile site would be better than downloading apps in my view. if u dont mind sharing could u please tell me what your usage is like on the 920, which results in poor battery life? the one thing i dislike about my lumia 800 is the terrible battery life. i hate having to charge my phone in the evenings so i can use it at night

    I predominantly use it for e-mail (probably around 20 e-mails per day), SMS (5-10) and browsing the web / reading news (perhaps about 45 minutes per day). I listen to TuneIn on the way to work and back (a 20 minute drive each). I also have Skype installed and use that for messaging only (perhaps another 5-10 messages per day). That's about it.

    I use Nokia Drive once in a while but that's not part of the daily routine. Drive kills the battery in about 90 minutes with a charger attached. I read that the Nokia DC-20 charger works to keep it charged, so I ordered one of these - I'll report back once I get it. Same goes for playing games - don't do that regularly. That also kills the battery fairly quickly (which is understandable, though, and goes for all mobile platforms).
