Hi every one this is my life story fro the childhood we used to love Nokia and Sony Ericsson phones for cameres Sony Ericsson were good but for duraablitity Nokia was good and now we are grown,UPS so I used all most all the os's in the market sorry guy bb was the worst I bouth and sold in no time then used another bb but didn't like at all anyway Nokia was left behind from the innovations so I used android and I know the history of it kind of liked it and I thought it will kill the iPhone which is happening now but I used I phone 4 then wanted to buy 4s that time I was using c7 and e7 but I changed my,mind I got Lumia 800 which was quite similar with I phone with Zune and bloody I tunes with it oh my god then came the beast 920 with windows 8 my word the best out of all I have ever used the phone I was dreaming for two sleeping giants back together and made 920,folks it is a matter of time to people to switch to lumia,people just don't trust Nokia fair enough coz I didn't use to trust Nokia with simbian but Nokia with windows I do trust Nokia.guys 920 is just amazing buy it get used to it,I phone becomes second android now not usefriwndly anymore to my preferences Lumia 920 then iPhone 5

You're like a religious preacher or something.. trying to get people to convert, lol. Or stop them from buying Nokia's products. Are you that jealous of Nokia and Windows? Aww poor you. Don't worry, your precious Android is also awesome. Very awesome. (Sarcasm intended)
And about Lumia 920, yeah its expensive. I agree with that. But we bought it anyways. We didn't choose sgs3 or iPhone cos we don't like those. Or maybe we're just too ignorant and stupid and we like to waste our money on useless colorful bricks. You happy? Now stop complaining, will ya?
Why do you care what we do anyways? Let us Lumia users be at peace and have our conversations regarding our phones. Go rant on your beloved android/iPhone pages about how much you love it and how much Lumia 920 sucks. Atleast people will agree with you there.
Seriously, you android fanboys can be so lame...

AnonD-84477, 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.

AnonD-102477, 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!
abdur razzak, 23 Feb 2013My lumia 920 set soddenly off.what happen,i not understand anything.i try n try switch on but ... morehold volume down key and power button for 10 sec.mobile will turn on with safe mode.
AnonD-70078, 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.
AnonD-84477, 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 ultrapixel tech
