    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.

    so you are saying the keyboard has been improved from the 920?

    Its more accurate. I might also just like the slimness better when typing.

    It is easier to type I was being sarcastic about the size. I am surprised that there is some flex in the back.

    That's great thanks, just woke up it currently 2-30am here in the uk and I can't sleep.

    Looked at my phone then put it back on the side and the clock was as bright as anything he he.

    In the same settings you can set a night mode, which turns the clock red so it's not as bright.

    The damn phone is probably the most elegant and cool looking device since the macbook air was released.

    Got mine on Friday and I love it! Had an iPhone since the 3G and decided to try so thing different.
    I got the 920 and got rid after a few days wp8 is AWSOME it's just the battery life sucked but so far the 925 seems much better.

    I gt the black version and its lush. Waiting on my free wireless charger and yellow back plate which I should get this week.

    I always liked iOS for its simplicity and can't say anything bad about it other than its boring. Never liked android as its too laggy and overly complicated. The simplicity of WP8's os and this phone, its lightness, size, even its clock on the lock screen just screams classy. I wish there was a way to get movies on WP8 though. I wonder what microsoft is waiting for? Not synced but downloaded on the phone.

    Totally agree with you ios is getting very boring and although ios7 looks a little refreshed it wasn't enough for me to keep my iPhone.

    I can't stand Android due to the lag you get to be honest.

    The major test for me is going to be this week at work my phone goes through a beating with use and all so let's hope the battery can withstand it.

    Can't wait for my backplate and wireless charger hoping the yellow make it stand out a bit.

    This will be a Tmo phone. No need to worry about refarmed areas. You'll get regular Tmo service.

    Oh, I know. I was talking about getting the European version as falconeight did. I wouldn't be able to deal with that, no matter how awesome the phone was.

    @chattoe: the 925 is rumored to launch on July 17.

    I don't like the 928 its to big and heavy. The international 925 is quad band and I get speeds just as fast as I did on my iPhone 5 so its great. I think its the best designed phone running the only phone OS that makes complete sense.

    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!!!
