I hate my galaxy note 2 everyday charging even it has a battery of 3000mhr last one day of use.....and camera sucks!!!! beleive me.
now i want to buy nokia lumia 920.
Initially I got a Lumia 820.I used that phone for a month but always wanted the flagship means the 920 but I was concerned about the weight..
Anyway I had a offer from my friend for the 820 I couldn't refuse so sold it and bought a 920.Previously I had a SAMSUNG GALAXY 3 for about 4 months.
I have been using the 920 since about 20 December I have a white lumia.
1.It is a beauty the WHITE lumia is class
2.WEIGHT I was concerned but somehow I don't know how but you don't feel its heavy at all..I gave my buddy to use it and he was surprised he says he thinks the way Nokia balanced the phone that is why you don't feel it heavy...really guys and girls the weight is no issue.
3.build their is no phone on the current market built like this...I have dropped mine 4 times twice bad drops no scratches or cracks.
4.the screen does scratch and is not fully scratch free...Also the rear of my phone shows hairline scratches
5.i Have no cover as I cant get one as yet.
6.Camera is Superb the galaxy or I phone have no chance to even dram off getting close.
7.UI is very crisp and clean...I have never had my phone freeze not even once.
8.APPS are crap that's the truth...Apple and Android are in a totally different league.
9.games are poor so far I haven't got one decent game.Again android is way ahead here.
10.sound quality and call quality superb and way better the galaxy
11.battery I have is the standard version of the phone not upgraded to the PORTICO which I know people who have say battery improves by two to three times yes it does...on current status battery is fair nothing more..In WIFI mode it draisn very fast and faster then glalxy 3 ...In 3g mode drains faster then GALAXY 3..I say the battery is average on current but I think once I get PORTIC upgrade it should be awesome.
12.Sync with outlook is a bit of a mission compared to BB and SAMSUNG.
13.lumia needs a DESKTOP lie BB and KIES.
This phone is way ahead of windows 7.Still lacks a few things small things which make a difference to make it the real KING..With the way Nokia is doing upgrades I think this phone will soon be even better I here a big UPGRADE is coming around march which will have Notifications and few other stuff..
Overall I would not swap this phone for any other current phone..Yes it misses a few tricks that android has,,but ui is crisp and phone is built superbly...oh and that camera is just wow.
Amazing technology what u do with it...Amazing phone by Nokia...NOKIA ROCKS..

- take a decent photo

- have a lag free experience
- have a phone that looks nice
- filter your apps list

- Nokia maps ( many ppl prefer over gmaps)
- streamlined gui across all apps
- better social integration than jellybean
- better use of cores than android
- have a better keyboard out of the box
- faster cellular and pentaband capabilities
- better audio recording by miles
- experience the feeling of having a premium device, rather than premium os
I'm sure I skipped a few, and android is tied 3ways for top os is in my books. Wp8, Android and Symbian are all equal in different ways. Depends on what you do with it.
So in conclusion for me, Lumia weigh same as Note 2. Android user interface and experience is better that Windows 8 - For the Iphone screen, you can use screen protector and i can assure you it won't get scratches or break. Sincerely.
Aboucho2, 17 Jan 2013You can do factory reset as much as you want with the Samsung in settings. The User Interface ... moreIphone 5 is the most delicate phone I think, I saw a bunch of 4 and 4S in the Service centres for glass replacement and 5 is to be kept in case or you can see scratches and scuff marks all over the sides. I never liked Blackberry, because from the days of Symbian 60 Nokia is giving free mail services and Blackberry never works without a Blackberry data plan, no navigation as we find in Nokia. Note 2 weighs same as Lumia 920 so for me it doesn't matter.

The User Interface and Experience is more friendly on the Samsung. But, if you are looking for security and stability, you can go for Iphone 5 or the new blackberry 10 coming out near. Also, the lumia weight is too high. Maybe, we got used to Samsung and Iphone's weight, and that's why when i tried the Lumia, I felt something weighing so high in my hand.

But still for my business purpose I can't rely on Android as there is no certainty when I need to factory reset.
[deleted post]What can you on a Lumia 920, you can't do on the Samsung S3 ? Nothing. What can you on a Samsung S3 you can't do on a Lumia 920 ? - So many things and if I start, I won't finish. So maybe Nokia is targetting specific customers but I, won't advise someone to purchase it. Go for S3 or Iphone 5. That's is my point of view.

I had Windows 8 on my laptop and also intended to buy a tab with windows 8, so when these things work with Windows 8 mobile it makes your work lot more smooth and easy. Your documents are very well synchronized that we did not need to worry about anything. This is a smart business phone, which is to be used as it is.
