    How's the CPU/GPU holding up in the Lumia 920 compared to the others? [couldn't find any benchmarks comparing lumia's to each other]
    And how long before you guys recon it will no longer be of adequate power to play the latest games or even update to the latest OS versions, i love my 920 but the ever longer ''resuming'' is making me worried about 8.1/future.
    I will clean-install 8.1 which should eliminate any hick ups caused by 8.0 or myself, but i hope it will last some time still.

    Dunno but I just bought one so hopefully it'll be good for a couple of years yet. I just hope Nokia keep supporting it with updates.

    I think the old 920, still is a better deal then cheaper models such as 5xx 6xx 7xx series.
    You can still get them cheap. I actually prefer the weight and size of 920.

    The truth is the 920 will still be more than adequate for a long time to come yet. My girlfriend has just recently moved from a Lumia 800 to a 520 and the only reason was a physical hardware issue. She used it extensively every day and its own software was still more than quick enough for her. That was running WP 7.8 so our phones running WP8.1 will last us for as long as you want them to!

    For me, a long time, but I don't tend to use anything that needs a lot of processor.

    I bought the 920 when it was first released at first was kind of disappointed but with the GDR updates , it surprisingly got better and faster. I am sure that the 920 will stay competitive in the market for a long time (I give it 3 more years) and that's for many reasons:
    1. Its size is soo perfect.
    2. It has the hardware that would help it last for future updates although the only thing im positive about is that the battery life will be substantially reduced with every update
    3. As you can see windows phone isn't that big of an OS its very light and can almost work on any type of hardware so I wouldn't worry about it
    4. Last but not least is that Microsoft is very smart. For instance, take a look at the original WP7 phones. They weren't given the permission to proceed to WP8 but given 7.x which was a fair update for these progenitor phones.And this was mainly to ensure that these old guys won't suffer from lag or slow experience. So if microsoft was to continue their updates to 920 they'll make sure that the hardware can take it. Unlike Apple for instance when they slammed iOS 7 onto all the old iPhones (4 , 4S) and BAM ! They are too damn slow atm forcing people to update to iPhone 5S
