    Undecided. The deal breaker for me at the moment is lack of font size changes in messaging. It's killing my use of my phone at the moment. I do like my Lumia, but android may be a better option for me as I don't like having to stick reading glasses on when I'm out and about and my phone beeps.

    I thought the font, well at least for the messaging is a good size. I going it to be more clear than my previous android phone. And what do you mean beeps?

    Here's a little chart that I did up that might help some out. There seems to be alot of talk about how big the latest phones are, and of course a frame of reference always helps. Here are the 920 and the 8X compared against the 900 for dimensions. It might surprise you.

    Eventually, I will need/want a black W8 device that has 64GB of memory (built-in or expandability) and a replaceable battery. I also want it to have a screen at least as nice as the super AMOLED on my original WP Focus AND for the device to be no bigger or heavier than that gem.

    I'm torn between the Nokia 920 and the Samsung ATIV s at the moment. There are strong attractors to both. I like the lightness of the Samsung as well as having expandable memory with the bigger screen; but, I also like the integration of location services on Nokia and the fact that they seem to be all in on WP8.

    I'm going for the Lumia 920 for sure (red), but I'm equally excited about the HTC offerings as well as the Samsung ATIV as viable competitors to pretty much every smartphone available.

    My reason for choosing the Lumia over the HTC 8X is the definitively the superior display and camera (the treatment I received at the Lumia launch event and being jaded by HTC's support for their devices (aka lack there of) doesn't hurt).

    That said, I'm pro-Windows Phone regardless of the handset maker, and I will be promoting whichever devices I can convince my family, friends, and coworkers into using to suit their preferences.

    920 unless the 8X comes in at least $100 cheaper outright. Even then still probably the 920.

    This has been addressed in WP8. The SDK was made partly public.

    I, unfortunately, am on the Sprint network so my next phone will either be the Galaxy S3 but I'm hoping to be able to hold out for a few more weeks and get the Note2. My Arrive is just not working well with the tower updating they apparently are doing around my area. Hopefully, in the next couple of years, Sprint will come back to Windows and have some decent devices out there.

    Unfortunately, Sprint is causing the same kind of chaos here in Youngstown, and my Sprint users at work with EVOs, GS3s, and even iPhones are suffering to the point that my boss and I are in the process of moving them to AT&T.

    Before you switch phones and platforms, I would encourage you to merely try a new phone for a week before committing to it in case your situation is similar to mine.

    Good luck! :)

    Definitely getting the 920. Really pleased with my 900. It's simple, works well with the bluetooth in my car, takes decent pics, faster than all the dual core phones out there (that I've tested against, including a SG3 at the Rogers store) and was the right price off contract (525 bucks up front, not bad.)

    Now that WP8 looks to bring the feature set up to par, I'm excited. I try not to be biased, but everything about Apple's design since the bloody colored iMac has bugged me. Some stuff is a real gem, and they build sturdy machines but this....



    ...and that flat stainless steel look of 5 years ago was just awful. Left a sour taste in my mouth.




    Gross and boring....
    I have no doubt that the ecosystem is strong, but I'm just not interested in the closed nature of it.

    Looking forward to Windows 8 and the new Windows Phones. The Lumia 920 will be my choice. Maybe I'll see Winterfang at the gym bulking up to carry his? :D

    Thank you very much for the input and confirmation on that. I've gotten a lot of good info and help from you in particular over the past couple of years since I moved over to Windows Smartphones. I was telling the wife just the other night that my biggest fear is spending the $200 or so on a new phone, only to have the same issues. Just tonight, I tried to retrieve my voice mail from a call I never got( no ring, no missed call in the list, nothing, except the voice mail) and I couldn't even dial my phone to retrieve it. My wife, who has a Samsung Epic 4G had full bars and couldn't dial out either. After a period of time, she managed to get out and we tried calling Sprint support. It dropped the call just after I finished explaining to the person on the other end that I had already factory reset the phone, updated the PRL and Network profile.

    I took the phone to the local Sprint center and the guy tried to tell me the reason my Arrive wouldn't work was because it was an EVDO model....... He also had no clue about Windows Phones.

    Hilarious. They'll make up any excuse on why things are so bad. They do the same thing to us here.

    When I left Sprint for AT&T, I was successful in avoiding ET fees by complaining vocally about the lack of service and refused to pay for service they weren't providing.

    I just got off the phone with the Oklahoma Office of Sprint and they now tell me that there is apparently now a known problem with the tower in my area and it should be fixed within the next 24hrs.

    We'll see.

    I also told the guy about my experience at the local Sprint store so he made a few notes on that also. He too agreed that the Service tech at the store was feeding me a line of BS...

    So, hopefully by this time tomorrow, I'll be back to full service like I've had for the past 15 years prior.

    ATIV S or 920. The 8X is too big of a phone for only a 4.3" screen, especially considering I have a 4.7" Titan.

    I just got the Radar, but I may return it and buy the 8S off contract, due to the fact it has microSD, and will hopefully be under $300. Got to save every cent as a college student, ya know.
