10 days after buying this phone, i realize it was not a wrong decision to switch from android to Lumia 920. Its nice to handle, smooth UI and transitions (you don't see that annoying LOADING icon quite often like android. I have got used to live tiles interface and now loving it.
As a phone, to make calls, managing contacts and sending messages is nice experience as the keypad is very very smooth (i was scared to to adopt on screen keyboard as i use it for business but didn't face any difficulty using it).
The voice command feature is very very polished as compared to android. It never fails to recognize my voice and the best part is that i dint have to speak like a robot.
Email interface is top notch.
Nokia Drive seems to be better than g maps.
Build quality, feel, display, touch quality, camera etc all are top notch.
There are a few things for which i miss my old android but the goods in Lumia 920 overshadow its bads, which i am positive shall that wp8's future updates will cover them.
You have to be open minded to accept and adopt Lumia920 but once you make the switch from android and get used to it, i am sure, you are not going to regret it.
To be honest, including mine I have many times asked four othet colleague's about freezes or restarts, but nobody has even wrongly allegations lke this, yes wlan connectivity, has problems. Why you create rumours that hsv no base! one thing is the margins are exorbitant, if we see chinese same specs rivals. Thats why see non tech brands hav plans or launched cells. I hope dunhill or parker would also be n competition anytime!:-)
The Lumia 920 is everything except flopped, see how many people are interested in this phone and the Lumia line-up. Sales are going well and more and more people started to get intrested in WP8.

Anonymous, 28 Feb 2013What the desired results expected, of L920 have flooped, making its prices on promos its avail... moreLol. What a load of old pooh.
I've worked in retail for years. Sales. And i know if some wants something they will have it one way are another.
What the desired results expected, of L920 have flooped, making its prices on promos its avail with warranty for550$ any color. Now with niche class is is being hurt in economic down turn, seen they carry 50$ sets fr call receive sms fm etc. High End cells have short life, but crazy youngsters easy money easy spend tendencies, should not carry these gagets. Hope got msg accross Guys!
hey guyz im almost getting my hands on a lumia 920 but my only worry is apps :( !! ... any news or updates about wp8 apps ... and suggest me few apps too :D !!
I think itz a great phone with a whole different os and competetive apps.Itz too bad it doesn't support java.
veshoo, 27 Feb 2013frends nokia lumia series is totely flop. dont waste ur money. to many broblems in lumia secri... moreits funny you say that.. and its funny how you target the "lumia series".. i have yet to see a single lumia restart of freeze...
i have friends who have tried to show off thier piece of junk androids to me, and they have had to pull the battery out while showing it off becuase it froze while opening an app. SG3 has frozen with white screen about 3-4 times infront of my face. i used to own a galaxy nexus which sometimes didn't respond at ALL when you'd touch things on the screen. my friend complains about the same issue with his sony ion... 10-15 taps of a single button before phone does anything.
... so how about you stop wining over your problems like a little school. i have yet to see a phone as blazing fast as a lumia series phone
My co-worker at the office was impressed by this phone when I showed it to him, in three weeks he can choice a new phone with contract. He was so impressed by the Lumia 920, he will get this Lumia 920 too. Such a great phone, WP8 looks smooth and more classy, business OS.
Cool!! Yeah I read about the Here Maps. I really love how Nokia keeps brining exclusive apps for us.
I checked out most of the apps you suggested, btw. Metrotube is currently what I use the most. And also Blink. I can seriously never get enough of taking pictures! Nokia has really done wonders with the camera. Thanks again for the awesome apps :D
TheBroCode, 27 Feb 2013Windows phone games are pretty good too. I do not miss Android games one bit. But that's becau... moremost of apps and games on window are paid only we cant even jailbreak . i don't even have credit card to buy all those apps :(
TheBroCode, 27 Feb 2013What the annoying trolls/Nokia haters are trying to do is take the minor drawbacks Windows Pho... moreHey bro. Some new apps coming soon to lumia only. Nfc writer now available in store. Twitter updated to match android and iphone. Face book update coming. Some new camera ones coming to. Keep an eye out. Nokia maps is now called here maps. Updated on Monday
Just got my L920 its average as per hype, every thing is similar to win 7 except tiles resize, except bigger screen type, pls confirm portrico numbers,update. Mine is firmware1249.1001
OS version 10211.204, update says its latest. Please Confirm.
What the annoying trolls/Nokia haters are trying to do is take the minor drawbacks Windows Phone has and exaggerate it and make it seem like a huge deal. And also, yes there have been quite a few complaints regarding the freezing of phones but they use that too and make it seem like every L920 device faces it & try to create second thoughts in peoples' heads about whether or not they should buy this phone. But as far as I know, none of my friends or acquaintances who bought the Lumia 920 have faced such a problem. And if we count how many Androids out there have faced freezing problems...woah. I'm sure the minor drawbacks will be gone as updates come but the ones that are there right now are nothing that will spoil your overall experience using the phone.
Go ahead people, buy this beauty and you will NOT regret it. The apps will come soon too and so will the games. Just be patient :). I have a felling Windows Phone 8 will be a success.
