    So I know this question has already been asked but should I get myself a 920? It will be my first W8P. Or I was thinking a 1020. I kind of like the 920 for size and portability and I just use my phone for regular things like SMS, emails and Facebook.

    I am coming from a 64gb 4S and I found a 920 going for 160.

    So the question is should I or shouldn't I?

    It's really between a 1020 or a 920. But I don't wanna spend a huge amount for a beginning phone on wP8...

    920 is still a great phone $160 isn't too bad. Gears of death on reset is the only thing i hate about it. Just don't reset often and you should be ok.

    Go with the 920. Get the 1020 only if you are really into the camera. That's the only real difference besides the 920 having wireless charging capabilities (which I love to no end! There's a video floating around of someone putting a wireless charging pad in their car... Awesome!!!). $160 is a good deal.

    Patience is a virtue, my dear padawan. :)
    I've got a 920 and I'm quite happy with it. I've only tried out the 1020 at a retailer and I must say that the camera is really impressive. I reckon that if you don't want to spend too much money to just try WP8 out and you can get it at a fair price, the 920 is not a bad choice at all. My phone has no problems to run any apps that I've installed on it and it runs like a charm. The 1020 is a excellent phone and also a newer one so I guess that it will be a bit more expensive. I love the WP OS so I don't think you could wrong either way. It's all about the money. :)

    The 920, I feel, has aged rather gracefully, is still very well a solid choice for as a device.
    I would get it, but if the camera of the 1020 is worth the markup, go for it.
    There are some other differences like no Qi, different display type in the 1020,

    Get it. I've had mine for a year and still. Love it. That's weird for me I get bored with stuff real fast. Is is smooth and the phone still looks great even though I have beat the heck out of it.

    920.
    The major differences are the camera, display type and Qi. You won't be needing the 40 mP camera for "regular things". Besides the camera on the 920 is good too. If the display type bothers you then you could choose the 925. ^_^

    What are the differences between the 920 and 925 display?

    It's just a matter of preference.
    I personally love the Puremotion+ IPS.

    Talking about apps is not that pleasing for wp8 users. It is neglected by a lot of authors, e.g., credit cards like AMEX and cars like bmw.

    Don't know about tapatalk.
    And there are plenty of (better) replacements for chrome apps. Ummm... You could download sysapp pusher and download everything under the Microsoft tab. :P
    And most of the important features are built-in.
    Office.
    One note.
    One drive (has an app too)
    Etc.

    Do not get 920. It is not worth it now because Nokia stops supporting or fixing issues in this beta phone

    why beta device? What issues? L920 works like a charm. It's true that is a first flagship on wp8 but for about 160$ it us a still great deal.

    Personal experience with a 920: I bought my first WP8 device, the 810 in Dec 2012, saw a Rogers 920 deal on eBay and bought one right away to use on T-Mobile. Since then I have switched back and forth between the 810, 925, and an S4 and I have always come back to the 920, this is probably the longest I have used any phone in the past 3-4 years, lol. I never had any issues with my phone and it has been performing like a champ! Its one of the best phones to give you an overall premium WP8 experience (wireless charging, great camera, 1GB RAM, crisp screen, 32GB memory, Nokia apps). I would say, give it a shot, worst case you'll end up selling it for a higher price

    $160 for a 920 is a steal! Go for it!
