Tasfique, 24 Feb 2013Except for G+ n drive all the other apps r important from Google especially the maps, mail n Y... morehere in my place, nokia maps is better than google maps.. and i have a ios and android device too, so i know it. so we can say the maps is depend on what location you are, gmaps is the most used maps on this planet, but that doesn't means it is the best,i won't said nokia maps is better but i know google maps isn't the best, beside on last year some car manufactures sign with nokia for integrating here maps into their car system (include toyota, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen , Hyundai, and etc)
about the mail, the mail account in wp can handle few email directly in one inbox (link inboxes) means every mail that sent to your friend is coming to that INBOX (hotmail, yahoo, gmail, nokia, whatever mail) so why is your friend frustated about this thing???. and in the wp store got a lot of youtube downloader (well i never tried it because i never download anything from youtube)
is your friend really owned this phone before?? maybe he is not a smart one to figure out the features of this phone.

HKFoo, 24 Feb 2013actually i don't feel like need google in my wp.
who need google+ when you have facebook and ... moreExcept for G+ n drive all the other apps r important from Google especially the maps, mail n YouTube! Gmaps is the best map in the world supporting lot of places like in my friends Nokia 920 maps is nearly useless the map doesn't show lots of places in my country and he used to use Gmail cause it has feature to link hotmail n yahoo which means u can receive ur hotmail n yahoo mails on gmail. Now with no official app he needs to use the browser and with YouTube it's really important n guess what on my droids n ios I can download
YouTube videos easily with an app called tubemate. My friend couldn't find any app for his 920 n some vital apps I showed him he couldn't find it on the marketplace. The poor lad got so frustrated he is selling the phone now, but in a country where there is IOS n Droids demand he isn't finding ne good customers... Win8 on phones is too late they can't catch up now.
It doesn't matter if u need this app or not what matters is what everyone needs! This phone is expensive too same price as S3 n IPhone5. People should buy this phones rather than a useless colourful brick!

willboyce, 23 Feb 2013Nokia lumia rocksTrue that! I got the red one 3 weeks ago. My first WP experience and I'm loving it :D
Hey, can you suggest some great apps that I should get? The ones which you use and need the most?
This phone is awesome~
Android fanboys, please go away. Seriously... you're just showing how lame you are. *tsk tsk*
And I know many Nokia and WP fans do the same on forums of other OS devices. You guys please stop too, kay? We don't need to be immature like them just cos android fans keep bashing on our beloved phone. Let's show them we can be better. :)
I think Nokia chose WP because it is a very mature OS and will appeal to those who want to get away from the heavy customizations of Android or the simplicity of IOS.
Android is great, my first smartphone was the Samsung Galaxy S2. I still have it because I can't seem to make myself sell the first phone I bought with my hard earned money. But I love WP8 and my new Lumia 920 way more. Sure it doesn't have the 500,000+ apps like Android but people don't even install 1% of the 500,000. I've got 13 apps on my SGS2 and I've reset my phone over a dozen times because it started lagging when too many apps were installed (I don't know how the quad core droids are though. Heard they're better but I won't be getting another Android for a long time now). I haven't had that problem on my Lumia 920 yet and I've installed A LOT of apps. And judging by how smooth my friend's old L800 is after 2 years, I think I'll never have such problems on my L920.
There seem to be a lot of people complaining about poor battery. Its not as great as my SGS2 but it easily lasts a full day. I watch youtube videos on my phone for about 2 hours everyday and my phone is almost always connected to my wifi. I call my girlfriend every night for about an hour and play those little games for time pass occasionally. I listen to music whenever I do my Physics/Maths assignments and these usually take an hour each. Sometimes I just browse through the marketplace hunting for apps so basically my screen is on at most times. I like the battery output. Not the best but certainly commendable since the screen is amazing.
Lack of awesome HD games isn't a problem for me. I've got my Alienware Aurora for that. And besides, I don't like hardcore gaming on a touchscreen.
Oh and there's an app that lets you watch youtube videos. It's called Metrotube so those who were worried about no youtube app, check it out. It comes with a price but its worth it. You'll have to pay 0.99$ for the full version.
Tasfique, 23 Feb 2013No they won't it's final n confirmed by Google!!! Did u guys looked @ Google project glass unl... moreactually i don't feel like need google in my wp.
who need google+ when you have facebook and twitter
who need gmail when you can sign in through your native mail account
and we have bing to replace google search
and as for youtube,it can be opened through browser (maybe it is not better than youtube apps in ios or android)
and google maps??? we have nokia maps here..
so no worry about google doesn't want to support wp
Nokia lumia 920 (L920) and HTC One (HTCO) conversation :
HTCO : i got a new technology call OIS and low light picture
L920 : so? those things were in my body since 2012
HTCO : i got ultrapixel tech
L920 : so??
HTCO : they said this is my time
L920 : JUST BRING IT !!!!
just a joke everybody. lol
Ruby, 22 Feb 2013Guys I want to know that r windows mobiles slowIt's really fast and smooth.
willboyce, 23 Feb 2013Nokia lumia rocksYou're right man. By the way the battery backup is even better after the update. Great phone.
abdur razzak, 23 Feb 2013My lumia 920 set soddenly off.what happen,i not understand anything.i try n try switch on but ... morePress and hold the power button and volume down button for about 10 seconds for a soft reset.
mayu, 23 Feb 2013google is going to develop the apps if the market of wp will rise.. And is on the way to rise.... moreNo they won't it's final n confirmed by Google!!! Did u guys looked @ Google project glass unluckily it wont be available for Windowsphone!!! Hahaha
What a disappointment. Received the 920 8 days ago. Poor battery, poor volume (both alarms and speaker)Not user friendly, minimum support, have to guess what to do if you don't know the symbols. On day 8 (yes, one day after the out of box warranty expired) the phone switched off and nothing can get it working. Needs to travel 200km to closest service shop. Worst Nokia I've had since 1993 in SA.

Sjizzi, 23 Feb 2013It's price is not justified for the set of features it offers. I am talking about non-contract... moreIt seems Nokia didnt want 808 to be a success.then they had to continue with moore symbian phone and support.920 has no good white balance and no face detection and no zoom while recording videos.and why only mono sound when recording videos despite It has 2 microphone for that and 1 for calls.they should have continued a bit longer with symbian until Wp has all the featurer that symbian offers.
