    -Camera issues (quality isn't what is claimed)
    -Dust issues (both for the proximity sensor and FFC)
    -Locking up issues after update
    -Battery Issues

    Is this just the frustrated yelling louder than the content?

    Is this just a small percent of the 920 owners or is this the majority?

    Camera Issues: None really. It has some flaws but it's camera phone and amazing for what it is! Hands down better than any other phone I've touched and it blows the iPhone out of the water.
    Dust issues: Only with the FFC but my iphone had issues with dust in the main camera as well.
    Locking up: Mine hangs from time to time and has reset itself 2-3 times since launch. But, so did the iphone. In fact, I could count on it hanging on me at some point through the day and I lost count how many resets I had to do on it to fix some random issue or to just get it to respond.
    Battery issues: At launch it was all over the place but eventually settled in and now I get great battery life and with the charging pad I've never run out of battery when needed. But guess what? Yep, iPhone wasn't any better, I'd say it got slightly less out of the battery than my 920 does but without an easy charging option I was almost always out of juice by the days end.

    It's just the frustrated yelling. It's a phone for crying out loud and we're on the verge of full fledged computers in our pockets. The 920, in my opinion, is the best phone to date. Light years ahead of Apple in terms of features and probably makes a strong case for the best on the market as well. We've all heard it but I'll say it again. The technology we have been blessed with in the last 15 years is killing common sense. People now have an entitlement attitude because of everything being so accessible. People want everyone to know that they have been screwed! I love my technology, I really do but some days I just wish we could go back to land phones and snail mail and knock a little common sense into some people.

    My Lumia 920 is great. Camera still surprises me, battery lasts 1.5 days, never locked up or anything, only a few particles of dust under FFC.

    I haven't had any problems. No dust under front facing camera, or anything like that.

    There is always an element of this, but it is absolutely true that all Lumia 920s suffer from poorer-than-advertised camera, dust in the front-facing camera and proximity sensory, issues with crashing and sporadic battery drain. I believe that since Windows Phone is a locked-down system, there really can't be significant variance between individuals' phones, so the fact that it is true on the multiple Lumia 920s I know of (including my own) means it must be true for all. The thing is, it just doesn't bother some people.

    You see, for many people, the camera is good enough, the front facing camera isn't much used and their proximity sensor continues to work just fine, the number of crashes is totally manageable, and the battery drain hasn't happened on an occasion to burn them. For these folk, it is a good phone.

    In all seriousness, I love my 920 for its audio quality and the instant social notifications(facebook toast notifications pending >_<)

    I am on T-Mobile and I bought a Lumia 920 and have been trying since the beginning of the year to get it unlocked. I passed up on the 8x because of the issues I had with my HD7 and because of the support I see Nokia giving to its customers but now I see all these threads about the L920 coming out that are for lack of a better word, heartbreaking.-Camera issues (quality isn't what is claimed)-Dust issues (both for the proximity sensor and FFC)-Locking up issues after update-Battery IssuesIs this just the frustrated yelling louder than the content?

    Phone is rock solid. Fast, no problems yet, and it's beautiful. :D
