Almost 1 month using it, great phone overall, build quality awesome (it should be as it's from nokia) thanks to the polycarbonate unibody, hardware fine (phone is veryX10 fast, believe me or get one, and forget about octal cores from others as cores don't say hello to you everytime, if it is going to be that fluid on one core alone i had no issue).
Let behind wat gud in wp8, all knows it, below are the points i found deficient or lack of funtionality.
1. SMS are only available in threaded view, gud but if we want to delete a single sms that cannot be done coz whole thread can only be deleted.
2. PC connectivity is a big and real time issue, phone is from nokia and latest version of NOKIA SUITE don't support it (or phone doesn't support it god knows). Only cloud backup is there and that is not very INNOVATIVE in all countries.
3. Impossible to transfer all contacts at once to other phone even to belle devices.
4.No file manager, you are not going to find files that are unknown to device irrespective of downloded/ recieved from any medium. this partly inhibits manual install of trusted apps either. Secondly a music file with name 1 will appear as 1 in music player and you cannot rename it any way on phone.
5. Camera is not that much outstanding as hyped, althogh it's good as a mobile cam. (Improvement expected in portico update).
6. No option to quickly close apps open, (plz. dont tell i dont need to close), select and back out till first page in browser is frustating.
7. No extended option for bluetooth, i do know in detail but hidden mode is not there.
8. Droping the profiles is not good or silent mode (both ringer and vibrate of) shall be included in the quick access bar.
9. Notification bar hides after being idle that keeps one hitting the top many times, not good, also plenty of space is there other notifications can also be provided there (ya i know live tiles doing it right now but they are on start screen only and not in the middle of apps or any thing else).
10. A screen saver is needed to show at least time when phone is locked
Please let me know if i am missing some thing.

AGP, 20 Feb 2013hey Hesht, its nothing to do with being grown up or not, its about what value do you get for y... moreOnce opened, the mobile unit is not as new as factory out. I have a Nokia mobile, sim takled inside and had to open it. There is samll gap on the unit now. I cant accept it as i have kept it so tidy, though more than one year i used it. Those who keeps and maintain things so personal would feel is something happens to it, immeterial if it is mobile or otherthings. Nokia has to replace the mobiles if found faulty within a reasonable period of purchase. This will only increase Nokia's credibility. And I myself is a Nokia man since its mobiles are made available.

1. Remove/Screen Guard, clean the the sensor area.
2. Blow Air from your mouth near the earpiece.
3. Using compressed Air Can
4. On/off and restart the front camera
5. Uninstalling Skype and restarting the phone.
7. Soft Reset
8. Hard Reset
And if any of the solution does not remove your black screen while calling, take it to NOKIA SERVICE CENTER.
From the day since phone was launched and some people bought it, I've been reading the comments like "its fabulous, its fantastic, its the best phone on the planet, it the greatest innovation ever made, everybody is in love" etc. etc. So as a phone enthusiast, I decided to give it a try. I bought the phone and after around 2 month of usage, I had an interesting conversation with the phone. Here it goes:
Me: Dear Lumia 920, you have great executive looks, build quality, solid body and design.
L920: Thank you dear user.
Me: By the way, I was surfing the web and accidentally press the BACK button. Is there any FORWARD button so that I can go back to my page?
L920: Sorry dear user, there is no forward button
Me: OK, I am on a page and there is a link. I want to open it in background so I can read it later.
L920: Sorry dear, there is no option to open links in background.
Me: Oh, my friend just sent me a link of a website with good songs and videos. I am so excited to download them.
L920: Sorry dear, browser will not allow you to download multimedia from sites. It will only attempt to play them directly.
Me: So is there any other browser in store?
L920: Wait dear wait. It is just 5 months since my launch. Apps are being added. Hold your breath until any other browser comes in store.
Me: I have some contacts with multiple number and I want to edit them. But it shows every number within a contact as hotmail.
L920: Right, that's destiny. You will have to choose between HOTMAIL and HOTMAIL.
Me: Ok, then please allow me to sync my contacts with Outlook or any other software.
L920: Sorry, to sync your contacts, first sync them with online hotmail / live account, then you can download from there.
Me: Dear phone, in every app and settings, your title text is too much big wasting significant part of screen. I want to reduce it to allow more contents.
L920: No dear, this is my charm. My way or highway. You have to sacrifice the contents and see my huge title fonts.
Me: Dear, I am heavy user on the go. I cannot have a charger all the time so I want to know the battery status all the time. Also, I move around the building and I want to know network strength all the time. Where are your indicators.
L920: Sorry dear, indicators are hidden. every time you want to know these things, you have to touch the top of screen.
Me: Dear I couldn't see tweets in official twitter tile. It is just a dead tile. Oh wait, I understand this is third party, but what about Skype? You have MS windows and Skype is also from MS. But I can't see msgs or when someone comes online or offline in Skype "live" tile.
L920: Shhhh.. Those are live tiles. But I am not bound to make everything live.
Me: Oh, my baby is so cute. She is making adorable sounds. I want to record them. Is there any native sound recorder in you?
L920: Sorry my friend. Please look into store for some sound recorders.
Me: You know, I was playing my fav. game and my brother asked me to lower the volume. I did so. But I couldn't hear the ring of next call. And oh, I increased the ringer volume and the next video I played was with full sound. What does it mean?
L920: Dear, the volume control is unified. If you lower the volume in game with volume keys, it will automatically lower your ringtone also. And if your ringtone is set to high, next time you open the game and you will annoy your brother again with full volume. Same is the case with audio video playback.
Me: I can't see equalizer in music player.
Lumia 920: So you need equalizer? Every time you need it, go to settings. I don't like it inside music player.
Me: And where is that file?
L920: Which file? I dont have any file manager.
Me: Sighhhh.... dear you are so innovative.
L920: Yes, there are many more things. But I am afraid the space is not much to describe them.
Me: Ok friend. See you.
L920: Ok bye bye.
Well, at the first day i bought lumia 920. I had this problem too.. But later i found out it is because the screen protector is blocking the sensor and after i removed the screen protector. Everything back to normal. I hope this can solved ur problem too
I used Nokia Lumia for 25 days--simple its awesome,i used before all mobile .my last one is iphone 4s 16gb i replace it because its dont have enough space and i bought ipod touch 5g 64gb..so, over all gaming experiance is awesome in my ipod ,but for mobile these lumia killing all others..this is totaly different..i compare the S3 camera and lumia 920..fact is both are gud but lumia giving me natural colour.little frustration is lack of apps..i guess soon we can get all apps in lumia.now a days im not suffer with apps,because i have all necessary apps in my ipod 5g-final words for mobile use its simply awesome and innovation--headup 2 nokia

So on the 12th day of my replaced Lumia 920, it is again deposited at Service Centre, for the proximity sensor issue. Everything is superb awesome in this phone but a small issue is making it difficult to use it. Strange why Nokia is not trying to rectify it. Another one week waiting :-((

You can search the net, it is full of this issue. My first set was replaced due to this issue and the second one is also showing the same issue now. Didn't expected to this from Nokia school flagship device.
I purchased a new Nokia Lumia 920 recently(Red).
My First Windows Phone
Love the Phone. Its looks and feel.
However facing a problem here...
Wanted to know how could i get the downloaded files.
Which were sent by others via Bluetooth.
The files seems to be saved but not able to retrieve them/locate them :(
And also guys please suggest some Apps that support Lumia 920 that search and saves the mp3/mp4 files.
