    I think having any new phone that turns out to have issues (either software or hardware related) is more often than not just down to bad luck. I've been a wp user for a few years, starting with the htc7 trophy, the lumia 800 and now the 1520 and I've had a pretty good run (apart from a small screen issue with the 1520, which was replaced immediately by my carrier).

    In contrast, my wife has had an iphone3, iphone3, iphone4s and now a 5s........and every single one apart from the 5s has had problems ranging from screen damage to software corruption and intense call dropping/call signal issues, not to mention some really bad scratching on the back and sides.

    Bottom line, I think Nokia, HTC and most of the other manufacturers generally make really high quality phones, but inevitably I would estimate that at least a few hundred in every million has the potential to be a "problem phone"

    Complaining about the build quality of the phones? Really? I've had three Windows Phones and haven't run into a single problem with the build quality. The odd problems with the 920 the OP mentioned? Never experienced it on mine. If anything, Nokia's build quality is superior to that of many other smartphone manufacturers. Same thing with their dumbphones and feature phones I used to own. There was always quality build to them. Also, all three of my Windows Phones have always functioned well.
    SO im not allowed to complain about the build quality of phones i bought? GTFO

    That like 2 months, that's not an awful lot.(at least not "for ages" as you described, unless you mean December 2012)

    Just remember how many faulty iPhones there are out there, I've had one.

    When you ship millions of devices you are bound to get at least a percentage to suffer from poor build quality

    I think, like others may have said, the problem lies with Nokia. I've had various issues with Nokia products, and I still like them despite the issues. The thing is, a company like Apple, that's going to sell tens of millions of the same phone can hold their factories to very very high standards, an Nokia can't. That's my two cents.



    Sorry but let's be honest millions of iPhone 5's where sold in a black color after a while they became scratched aluminium. I am no fanboy i use a Moto G and just recently switched from a 5s to a 1520 same as previous Nokia phones without hardware issue's. One time the xenon flash was defect on my 1020 that was the only Nokia phone i had to send in from all the phones i have used Nokia N73, N82, N95, 6220 classic, 5110, 3310, N8, Lumia 620, 710, 800, 1520 and so on. I'm not saying Apple is bad but every once in a while any manufacturer will make a defective or lesser quality device even Apple.

    Scratching is not a manufacturing defect. It's a side effect of using brushed metal. The Lumia 900 had the same issue with the aluminum camera piece on the back scratching badly within a few days. The Lumia 920 solved this issue with the ceramic piece instead, but had other issues like the front facing camera dust, and creaking bodies. Well documented at that. Nokia actually had to remanufacture the front camera seal to stop the dust. Still happened even after the fix though. The iphone has had problems too, but most of which had been software issues from a whole new OS. This is acceptable and are solved in updates like 7.0.1-7.0.6. The fact that windows phone doesn't get quick fixes is a separate issue that I won't address here.
