    8S here. It's running the developer preview. The only hardware problem is the volume up button.

    Primary Windows phone now is Cherry Mobile Alpha Luxe.

    Been rocking a 920 since February this year. Never owned a phone before this that I was completely satisfied with. Now I've considered a 1520, but for it to replace my 920 it needs to be the 1520.3 and i can't justify that with my 920 still running like a champ.

    I'm still using a Lumia 920 on AT&T, and I got it on launch days (11/9/12). My satisfaction with my device is hard to gauge and explain. My 920 still does mostly everything I want and need without issue, so I'm happy with it. I can't be mad at the durability of a device that shows no major wear on it, despite multiple drops (including one onto a concrete sidewalk). However, the battery life is pretty sad (MAYBE a day, though I never need it to last that long), and the device gets unpleasantly hot without much to push it. Then, there's the stuff that's not related to the device itself, and that's all a mess of negativity and frustration.

    The 920 is still in my pocket because Microsoft refuses to release a successor on AT&T (way too late for the 930, by the way), not because I love my 920. I'm disgusted with Microsoft's first year as a hardware manufacturer, to put it bluntly. Then there's the OS and application situation. The Xbox Music app we have now is a LOT worse than the previous one, which they had baked into the OS. The lockscreen functionality is gone, and doing simple things like resuming the app or opening it with library changes is really slow. Microsoft's also done a terrible job of getting updates out to OEMs, like with the fact that my sister's got the alleged Windows Phone flagship in the U.S. (the Icon), and it's the only major WP on Verizon to NOT be getting Denim in 2014 (the 822 that replaced her Icon, the Icon's 928 predecessor, and the abomination One are all getting Denim now), and I don't know that anything on AT&T will get the update this year. The app situation honestly feels worse in 2014 than in 2012, mostly because of the fact that while WP has more big-time apps than it did, the glaring holes are even worse to look at when 2 years of existence can't convince developers to put out official apps for things like Snapchat (which I don't use, but have to hear my sister talk about).

    So I'm fairly happy with my 920 itself after 13.5 months, but I was ready to upgrade 6 months ago (but couldn't and can't now). I'm really unhappy with Microsoft as a company, and I'm fairly unhappy with the status of the ecosystem. I don't use many apps and only play one or two games on occasion. Probably the biggest source of usage with my phone (after Internet browsing) is music, so when the music application is as terrible as it is, that problem really stands out and bothers me.

    I'd rate my device as 8/10 and my happiness overall as probably a 5/10.

    Still running an 18 mos. old HTC 8XT. Still running like a top, I see no reason to upgrade right now. That will change if Sprint ever brings a flagship to the network.

    No kidding, my bother and sister both have and still using their 810 while I have an international 920, all running on T-Mobile, 8.1.1 DP.

    Biggest thing that bites about the 810 though is its still on Amber.

    My main phone is still my 820, my wife has a 925 and we have a 635 and a 520 as backup phones. After seeing the 920 vs 830 comparison decided the 830 was not worth 450$ more than my 820. Looked at the 735; but can't find one for much under 400$ so decided to pass on it to. Just bought a Moto G lte because of the price of the 735. And even though I wanted the 735 I decided the Moto G lte at 180$ was a much better buy with similar performance. I really believe Microsoft has shot themselves in the foot with what they are doing with phone output. Hope I am wrong.

    I own a L920 and unfortunately it is no longer my daily driver as it simply couldn't last as long as I wanted it to. It was a bit of a lemon shall we say?

    Aside from a few quirks of W8 I was quite happy. I have to say I was disappointed that no real replacement or upgrade came out that allowed me to upgrade to. I didn't want an intermediate device like the L930 or L830. The 1520 was too big.

    So I had to move OS to get what I needed. I'll see about going back to WP in the future. Approximately 2 years from now.

    But are we talking 3rd gen WP8 or WP in general? The L920/820 were the first gen WP8 phones. the WP7 phones couldn't update.

    This is why I hate the number system of these phones.

    But the first gen were WP7 devices, even if they had the capability of updating but MS decided not to bother.

    So the OP was asking 'first gen WP8' devices. Not which phone was first, second or third gen.

    Have I mentioned I don't like the numbers? :P
