    My contract is running out very soon (november) and if the music app isn't less terrible by then, i'm heading back to an iphone. Had 3 lumias (520, 920 and 1320) and my patience is running out. Every release of WP they seem to make the music application WORSE and it infuriates me.

    With all previous phones I always feel the desire to upgrade them. But Lumia 920 is such a beautiful device that I am not feeling that desire at the moment. It's been nearly 20 months but I still love it in the way I loved it on the first day. I will get a new phone when current contract will expire but Lumia 920 is not going anywhere.

    I'm not gonna change anything till Christmas when my contract is up and I can justify a little expense.

    The thing is, I fear that because there are no new leaks yet, there will be no new phones by then. That is if the past two years are any indicator.... It seems like there are leaks/pics/specs that are always correct about 6 months before release. Then its announced 2-3 months before release.... Why cant anyone keep a secret so the hype is fresh when the phone is available?

    I really like this phone (920). I really only have one complaint and that is with the ear speaker for the phone so I bought a headset. Otherwise, it is awesome and still nothing has come out 22 months later worth buying. By the way, my most used features - Glance and Qi Charging.

    As everybody knows the 920 is a battle tank. It is reliable, strong and fuss free. I also have a 1520 but it has a very delicate screen. My 1520 screen broke after 1 month when it fell from around 50cm on to the floor. The phone was in its original Nokia cover!!!. - so be warned. I also had a 720 but there were some problems with the headphone socket so it was replaced. Unless I find another phone with the durability of the 920 and with considerable upgrades I will keep this phone. I really like this phone.

    I will keep mine until it is on its deathbed and then struggle to find a replacement among the crappy selection available in Canada.

    Nope. I wouldn't :D Still loves the device. And I think the 930 is not good enough as a replacement for 920. Tried the newer BB Z3, Nokia X2. Lumia 920 is still faster to use. Not to mention, I have dropped several times on hard surface with the display facing down (Twice on asphalt, twice on concrete, few times on floor tile and one time hit the corner of my drawer) and to my surprise the screen didn't crack or leave a single scratch on it. :D

    My 920 will be like my PC, a 5 year old CPU that runs perfectly fine :P (i5 750) Of course this is year 2 for the 920 but I'll probably switch when WP9 is officially out.

    There is nothing out to replace my L920 which is why I don't upgrade. Nothing to do with carriers for me either as I will be buying unlocked.

    Hopefully something comes out but I'm a little impatient as my patience with my L920 are wearing a little thin now.

    Well I replaced mine with the 930 but the phone is so disappointing and gave me such a headache (and still gives thank's to Microsoft's lack of updated to fix things they themselves broke) that I would tell you "No".

    I ended up switching to a Z3C because of the experience with the 930 so you may want to really think about what you're going to do when leaving the 920.

    Since I use prepaid service (Cricket) I have to pay the full price for a phone. I try to avoid the pricier models, but unless my 920 dies, I am staying for it. The only phone that may be an upgrade to the Lumia that recently came out is the Blu Win HD, but then I am sacrificing LTE, a lower quality screen, a lower processor and having to go to a cheaper plastic phone. Though a new phone at $179 is pretty good. I see myself with my 920 until next year at the very least.

    I would keep my 920.For me, my main is the 1020. My 920 I have done a fresh install (fresh ROM) , and will be using it to test Preview software (currently it is running WP 8.1 Update 1). I would also be using it as a developers device to test (future) apps that I (possibly) may be developing. But besides that, it is also a backup phone, such that in any case my 1020 fails I have another phone to fall back to.

    Sometimes, but been 7 years, not one problem with it...put a solid state drive in it 2 years ago, that made the most difference...no reason to get rid of it if it keeps working...I also have an insprion 1720 that works great too

    I am going to get the Lumia 830, I like what I see so far, perfect screen size, 10MP camera is also fine, wireless charging and Lumia Denim onboard.

    I am due an upgrade the end of November, and I can't see anything that compares to ny 920. Loved it from the first time I heard it was due for release, I was going for the 900 and I'm glad I didn't as the 900 didn't get the W8 update. I may go for the 1520 another one I have loved from first site, but I'm in no rush, Il hang on to my 920 and hope Microsoft come up with something better than what I have seen 730, 830 nah,,, just anther 920 in it. Remember when the 920 was dropped from the edge of space just before its release another reason why I went for a Lumina 920 ruff and tuff.

    If I would have answered this question last week, I'd have probably said "no, I like the 920 well enough to keep it". However, last Friday Cyan loaded itself onto my phone, and it's been nothing but annoying ever since. Bluetooth problems, calling problems, Beats Music problems, texting problems, and the battery is draining twice as fast as it used to. So, yes, I will almost certainly be ditching the 920, and quite possibly moving away from Windows altogether. There were some features I never did like - like it taking several clicks just to call someone you know, people at the other end of the conversation only hearing me half the time, about 6 steps to save a contact when it should be 2 or 3, etc. In general though, it's been a good phone until this lousy update.

    I'm still waiting for more pocket/hand friendly Lumia with almost top end specs. Sony Xperia Compact/Moto G style friendliness.

    I'd LOVE a Sony on WP. Android is terrible man. They're obviously feeling the heat as even now with Android L, they're basically copying WP, Just like Apple did with iOS 7. Seriously, even the LOCK SCREEN on L is like WP. But the experience is subpar. Everybody kept talking about how great it was, so I decided to give it a shot again with the S4 mini.

    My last Android prior to the mini was an Xperia Play. That phone was complete trash and very expensive. Reboots, terrible call quality, dropped calls, lag..etc etc. My mini started with Jelly Bean, but I upgraded to Kit Kat and the difference in performance and battery life to me was definitely noticeable. Problem? It rebooted while trying to stream XM to my Bluetooth Speaker. So, off it goes. I'm probably being a little anal for this one issue. But that's how it usually starts and gradually gets worse. What I find sad is..that an iPod Touch I had which had 3 times less RAM performed better than the Galaxy on a day to day basis.

    I'm in LOVE with WP ever since the Focus. Every time I try another platform, I come back. The experience is just superior here. I feel like I get the best of both worlds here...the smoothness of iPhones and the google apps Apple bans at their Store. The only thing that saddens me is no High End Phone that interests me has been announced yet. The HTC ONE is pretty close, but I wants more and I wants it NOW!

    Cyan on the 920 should not do that. Try resetting it or you may want to do a refresh. Our 3 Cyan 920's all get stellar battery life.

    Reset is just holding the volume up and down keys and the power button? How does a refresh differ? Excuse my ignorance - I'm just a casual user whose phone went from problem-free to constantly irritating!
