I'm from Iran. I've seen many many people using Samsung and iPhone. just low end Nokia phones are popular here, like Nokia 100, 112,... . This report is not true!

When leave office/home i feel something missing if i forget to carry the phone. And i felt the heaviness only a couple of days and it is more comfortable than my previous phones. Its all depends on ones tastes and likings. I give a 80% rating to Nokia LUmia 920 and expect MS to fill up the 20% by further improvement by periodic software updations. NOKIA LUMIAS ... UP always

Also, the browser in WP8 SUCKS. It's not the same IE that's on their computer counterparts.

True. But only low end WP like lumia 520,720,620 etc.. other high end nobody even think about it.

I live in Iran and I'm just beginning to see Nokia WP handsets in people's hands and on shops. I asked some owners on streets about their Nokia handsets and they all were more than satisfied with WP smooth performance.
I think WP will be my next phone. the only thing holding me back is that there is heavy internet filtering in Iran and right now there's no VPN or other apps to bypass filtering on WP devices. that's the only setback!
