    I just wish they put the 925 chasis on the 928 since some of us are stuck with Big Red, that chasis is damn sexy!!!
    At least the 928 has more storage and a xenon flash.

    For the first day I took it off the charger at 8:00 am and its now 8:45pm and I'm at 53%. I played a few games, checked the news, installed apps, have email on push, and watched some YouTube videos. I would say that the battery is impressive.

    Kind of a personal question...

    No, it's actually pretty thin. Might add 1mm or so to the overall thickness of the phone, so it shouldn't be too bad! I'll upload pics to the Charging Shell thread later today.

    The 4.5 inch screen with the smooth edges like on the lumia 800 make the screen feel bigger than it really is. That and the fact that you can't tell where the screen stops and edge starts on the black screen makes it a great design. Nokia really hit it out of the park with this phone.

    Coming from a 920 then iphone5. Out of the box it feels like they forgot to put the battery in. The double tap to unlock is brilliant and so is the time on the screen. It fits great in the hand and somehow the keyboard is more accurate and easier to use. I haven't noticed any issues with using it on AT&T.
    I've noticed the same thing...and was curious if anyone else did.

    For all of the praise that the Windows Phone keyboard seems to get -- and it does do SOME things very well -- I would constantly get the "." between my words, and other crazy things. Using the Lumia 925, however, my typing is much improved, and I'm not sure why. Did I change how I type or hold the phone? It's possible...but I doubt it. I think the "hit areas" of the keyboard have been adjusted slightly.

    Whatever it is....I like it!

    When you first turn on a Windows Phone 8 device it asks if it can send typing information to MS to improve the keyboard. My guess is that they used the data in the GDR2 update to make the keyboard even better.

    Its amazing how accurate it is. The keyboard alone is worth the price of admission.

    Yep....you would hope that this is the case.

    I would actually like to see portions of WP8 get chunked out and made updateable -- similar to the Nokia portions of the phone. Items like the keyboard, Xbox Music app, and browser could use updates that are more frequent than the OS update itself. Just my $.02
