    Hi all,

    I asked this a while ago and people said wait for MWC which was a bit of a disappoint from the new phones for us standpoint, so really, is there anything worth upgrading from my 920 to yet, I am having some issues with it (slowdowns and crashes) and as its a year old I want to upgrade it anywy but all the other 92* dont actually seem much of an upgrade, wheres the 930?? :(

    929 is the valid upgrade.

    it looks nice (well different, Im still not sure on its looks) and has some nice things but... is this really a full upgrade, it seems more like a bit of an upgrade but not much of one... feel free to correct me if I am missing lots of nice stuff in it though :)

    Microsoft wasn't expected to announce much at MWC, and they didn't. Build is soon, and that is where they are expecting to release comprehensive information about Windows Phone 8.1, and any new devices that will be launched with it.

    Nokia Lumia 929 also known as ICON Specs:
    LTE
    AMOLED, 5 Inch, 441ppi, 1920x1080 Corning Gorilla Glass 3
    32GB Internal with 2GB RAM
    20MP Pureview Camera, Carl Zeiss Optics, with Optical Image Stabilization
    Quad-core 2.2 GHz Krait 400 CPU and Adreno 330 GPU
    2420 mAh battery

    This is much better upgrade than the 6 inch Phablet 1520. My hand is small so I prefer 4.3 - 5 inches only.

    Yes, good idea - wait for a baseless rumour. "Lumia 1820 set for MWC 2014 launch"

    TBH, I'm not sure I want the next flagship, given the quality and treatment of the current flagship. fairly common set of defects, seemingly unsolvable problems with Camera quality and random battery drain. The icing on the cake for me is how we flagship users get to sit and wait for software updates while Nokia pumps out device after device with the newest software installed. Since GD2, the 920 is a better device than it was at launch, but its just mediocre too me.

    WP8 is shaping up to be a fine mobile OS, but I'm not convinced Microsoft has the follow through to see it happen. They came out of the gate lacking basic features and aren't moving fast enough to catch up and surpass the competition.

    An Icon that will be released globally will be a true successor. I have a 920 on AT&T and want to upgrade. I hope it has microSD, or at least 64GB!

    How dare Nokia attempt to sell new phones? Ok, that's a tad facetious, but software updates are, as always, at the mercy of the carriers. Nokia doesn't choose to not get updates out as soon as they are released. The carriers decide when to allow any new software to roll out. Maybe it shouldn't be that way, but it is the state of things.

    He is right about the defects though. Nokia has pretty much always had some phones (never said all, so don't defend Nokia if yours didn't) that are first and maybe second batch that have hardware issues. Then there are also software issues, that get fixed 6 months later (exaggerating), instead of not having the issues in the first place...

    I'm starting to think that maybe the fault for software delays doesn't rest completely with the carriers. Didn't some info come out during the GD2 release about Nokia being the ones dragging their feet with getting GD2 ready for ATT?

    I don't think Nokia is in any more of a rush to update current phones as the carriers. Same logic applies to both: New phones = more money.

    I don't see any reason to upgrade from the 920 yet, unless there are some specific features introduced after 8.1's release that require newer hardware. I haven't seen anything compelling so far in the release of the Icon or the 1520, and my 920 works better and faster than the day I purchased it.

    I could believe that IF my non carrier tied L920 (NL Variant) didnt recieve updates later than some carried (Vodafone NL for example!)

    Being bored is a perfectly valid reason to upgrade.

    I want the camera of the 1020 in the body of the 920 (or at least without the protruding lens), HD AMOLED screen, better battery life and a quad core processor with wireless charging built-in.

    If it doesn't materialise, I guess I'll have to settle for the 1520 - bit bigger than I'd like, really. Although it does have most of what I'm hankering after. It's just so damn big!

    Nokia doesn't seem to like big batteries. Didn't they hobble the icon, or whatever they're calling it with a somewhat small battery, give the hardware its pack'n? I need to get a new battery for my 920 as its starting last less and less time after a years use. Was looking on Etrade and couldn't believe and OEM battery is nearly $60! Might wait and see if I can find a cheap Windows Phone to get me by till my ATT contract is up in Dec.

    I'am also waiting for the L930. With 2Gb of Ram, 20Mpx camera and .... better batery please!
    I LOVE my L920, but it's starting to be annoying to charge the phone every 6 hours if I use it a lot (20 min of gaming = 20% batery).
