    This brought to you from the dude who accused me of starting rumors.

    Seriously - we have no idea when or if an international version will be available. We don't even know when the Verizon version will be available. Give me a break, people.

    You just love antagonizing people, huh? I said most likely. Am I stating a fact? No. It's my opinion, but I'm also not leading anyone on saying anything definitively. Leave me alone. You think I'm no fun at a party? I'd hate to have someone following them, constantly trying to start a fight.

    I'm not trying to start a fight with you. I'm sorry if you feel that way. The no fun at parties thing is really just a common saying for someone being a buzz kill. Nothing personal.

    This is the second time I've addressed you, the first was defending myself after you told me I was starting rumors after I posted a limitations statement based on speculation we've accumulated in this thread. http://forums.windowscentral.com/nok...tm#post2235547

    I was simply returning the favor. Lighten up. I wish you nothing but the best.

    Only time will tell if there will be an international version of this phone. It's rumoured to have 23510mAh battery, which is fairly nice, but it seems a bit bulkier (thick and heavier) than the more recent Nokia phones, probably due to the bigger battery and screen. Maybe there's something like SD Card Support which would add to the thickness too. If this did come in an international version, I admit I'd be tempted myself!

    If it has that much, it must be a TARDIS phone!

    Well, looks like the minimum batter size is 2420 in the prototype.

    I think there's just a max and a minimum. The 2510 max part is covered up and the 2420 min part is visible.

    I guess the back cover must not be all that hard to get off, kind of making the battery somewhat easy to replace, assuming the part hits the market.

    There WILL BE a international version. Seriously, saying here that there probably wont be one makes ZERO sense. If it wouldnt have an international version it would be the first from NOKIA to release something only in the US. Nokia with WP has way more traction in the EU and other markets than in the US, so leaving these out would make 0 sense on a product like this. This is the next generation 92x phone, which has to be considered the biggest seller from the high end devices.

    There will be an international version that I could make a bet on. And Im saying this without having any "inside information". Its just common and business sense that I have.

    I wouldn't say this is a phone that will be used internationally. All leaks have included Verizon's branding so far. Of course, I'm not basing this off of anything scientific, either. And I totally understand the business sense of things, but it's more likely you'll see an all new phone with a 5 inch screen, more colors, and the iconic Nokia shape with updated internals in the Spring or Summer to be released internationally.

    I'm getting the vibe that this phone will be much like the Lumia 928. While not a complete port of the 920, with the first Nokia Lumia to use a xenon flash and a different casing, it was only a slight variation of what already exists. The same can be said for the 929. It's a slight variation of what is already available, just for Verizon instead of everyone. The only difference being that the screen will be closer to 5 inches, instead of 4.5 or 6 inches like other popular Lumia devices right now in the similar price range.

    In a nutshell, it's very possible a phone like this will be released internationally, but the 929 itself doesn't look like it will, at least not right away. It's got key features of a Verizon phone. They took away colors and they took away the shape. Plus, Verizon made sure you didn't forget which carrier the phone is using by stamping their logo every few centimeters (ugh!).

    And again, I said there probably won't be an international version. I'm not trying to tell everyone that I'm absolutely certain. My opinion is that it doesn't look likely. Not in this form. We'll absolutely see more 5 inch phones from Nokia in the future that will be released internationally.

    Yeah probably it will not be identical on the outside, but it will be the same phone. 920 and 925 are at least available internationally, but what about 928? Is there a Tmobile version in the uk that has the european bands?

    I used to hang out at another forum that was oriented around an MLB team. We would use different font colors for different intentions with our text. It helped us avoid a lot of the confusion and miscommunication that can often be had through text conversations.

    For example:
    When we were being sarcastic, we would type in teal.

    When we were being optimistic or hopeful with our statements, we would type in pink.

    It really goes a long way on forums.

    Hello! Newbie to the WP world - not there yet, actually...but hoping to make the switch. My 2 main issues with phones are battery life and camera quality. Currently have HTC One and while the camera is okay, I'd like better. Pretty sure the 929 will solve that issue. Other problem is the battery is atrocious...yet IIRC I think it's using a 2300 mAh. So question is are all same spec'd batteries created equal? Sounds like the 929 will have a slightly bigger battery (10%, maybe) but does the actual performance of the phone dictate how much they draw from the battery? Any insight on that would be helpful. Thanks.

    While not an expert by any means on the matter (if anyone else has anything to add or correct in my post, please do!), I would say that battery performance will vary if the phone specs vary. For example, if a phone has a 4 inch screen and a 2500 mAh battery, and another phone has a 5 inch screen and a 2600 mAh battery, you may expect the 5 inch phone battery life may last just as long, despite a bigger battery, because it has to use more battery to display a larger screen.

    But of course that's not the only variable. There are a bunch of things involved that make a difference. I was just creating a simple example.

    But yeah, while the 929 is looking like it will have a 2510 mAh battery, you probably won't see a massive difference compared to your HTC One's battery life. But like I said, there may be other factors that make the 929 more efficient, or maybe the complete opposite! So we probably won't know for sure until reviews come out, or someone gets their hands on the phone for a few days to test how well it performs on normal usage on an average day.

    The biggest thing is how efficient the processor is. The snapdragon 800 is very efficient, more efficient then older processors. Thank in the same way as cars today vs cars in the 80s that had the same size engines but carburetors instead of injectors. The newer cars are just more fuel-efficient.

    But like Dustin stated you probably won't notice a big difference between the HTC one and the 929. The 929 has the newer processor but the 600 is still good and HTC has incredible standby time.
