AnonD-18125, 10 Dec 2012Lumia 920 is no way better than S3. You can check. I never found a S3+Note2 user become addict... moreI am, used s3 for 4months (my employer provided me) and now purchased Lumia 920 and is very very polished device and OS.
You have to try it for a day or 2 if you can borrow it from your friend or so..
hi Folks, being a technology Lover and IT professional, i am using iOS since 2008, android since v1.6,WP since v6 and of-course, Symbian since Nokia 3650 :)
Currently holding devices, iPad 4G,SG Note-1, iPhone 4s and LUMIA 920 :)(replaced my HTC HD7 with that)
I am in very much to Root, JailBreak and custom Roms.
Every Mobile OS has its own edges, perks and.....problems.
WP8 and Lumia, no way short to that.
After spending 10days wid NL920, analyzing camera,OS,Device,Apps:-
1) its a superb device, can easily be compared in terms of smoothness and stability to any flagship market have, as of today.
2) OS is little short of Apps, but you will easily find what your are looking for in windows-store and its keep increasing
3) Battery life is Average, can be increased by future updates.
4)WP8 is Rock solid stable,no Lag, No Sudden crash, no freeze(till date), always very responsive like iOS.(Android has a huge lag issue)
5)Camera is excellent in Video Recording, you will be astonished by captured video quality.
5-b) Picture quality in night, is great but lose of captured details is inevitable.
6)People Hub, i am loving it, after using all the Major Mobile OS, People hub is really innovative, easy and useful.
7)NL920, it self is very well build, beautiful screen, design, ergonomics, all are superb. weight is not no much (might be i m using SG-Note, so i can not feel difference)
Over All, very creative and innovative introduction to market as Samsung is already leading the race but nokia is here,to challenge.
If you are looking for a Flagship device, Nokia Lumia 920 will be solid candidate.
Happy Lumia 920 Using.
Jose, 10 Dec 2012Hello, I am a user of a Galaxy S3, the S3 is a much better phone than Lumia920 in hardware and... moreCan you explain what means better for you? Cause This Lumia is better then s3 in build quality, signal, camera (will be soon even better with the update) and some +futures... The internet is at the same speed overall (sometimes 2 seconds faster, sometimes 2 seconds slower) so, where exactly is S3 hardware better then 920? Also in what future is s3 better? Yes, wp has less apps, but not as less as people say;). It is catching up quite very quick. Not that the number of apps really matters, minding the fact that android has like: 3000 facebook apps, 3000 other kind of social apps, 1000 torch apps, 300 battery apps and so on. Instead of maximum 10. It is not like this means is advanced... Also there is a guy saying that wp is not so polished as android:))). I really really am convinced that android is the most messed up system out there. Symbian does way, way better in every aspect. To bad that just cause doesn't have those apps enumerated before doing the same thing, but only 5 or 6... maximum, from each, and also that Nokia hold it back by not installing more updated hardware, it is now, let to disappear. So, what do you mean by better, exactly? i'm just curious...
Jose, 10 Dec 2012Hello, I am a user of a Galaxy S3, the S3 is a much better phone than Lumia920 in hardware and... morei have read your comment and i have read it in a british accent helping me through school. thank you.
Anonymous, 10 Dec 2012Ull be boring and what u do just waste of u r money. If u want to switch u r S3, better go buy... moreby the time htc butterfly is launched globally,lumia 10xx will be announced and people will set their eyes on it,just like they have done for 920.
Best test of the optical stabilizer,
search for skateboard image stabilization test
iPhone 5 is really good also. Lumia 920 wins this one without a problem when on the skateboard, but when they are just walking the 920 seems more sea sick than the others, it kinda sways a little while the others, and especially the ip5, keeps a steady shot.
Jose, 10 Dec 2012Hello, I am a user of a Galaxy S3, the S3 is a much better phone than Lumia920 in hardware and... moreBut you can taste a lumia 920 if your money isnt a problem. Taste it. And ofcourse compare it with S3, and make your own judgement.
Jose, 10 Dec 2012Hello, I am a user of a Galaxy S3, the S3 is a much better phone than Lumia920 in hardware and... moreLumia 920 is no way better than S3. You can check. I never found a S3+Note2 user become addicted and turned into a 920 user.
Jose, 10 Dec 2012Hello, I am a user of a Galaxy S3, the S3 is a much better phone than Lumia920 in hardware and... moreWell the hardware might be more beefed up (Quad core etc) but you need that for android, they had people with Lumia 800's spanking the S3, look out for smoked by windows phone/lumia also as far as features go the lumia has more going for it than the S3.

AnonD-83178, 10 Dec 2012Sounds risky. I have decided to get a Lumia 920 but i will be keeping my Note 2. Theres a chan... morenot to mention the link u gave,the site is inclined towards android.yeah the wp7 was a failure in terms of business.but the site hasn't taken up wp8 as it actually is.ms nokia have done everything under the hood.e.g. The looks of internet r same as in wp7,but there is a lot difference in performance with full html5 support in wp8,and its competitive also in various browsermark against various androids,save for the optimus g which is often on top.
Also remember that people r appreciating the 920.it has taken up 2.5 million preorders within 20 days,even when its not launched globally.if nokia keep it in stock,which they r unable at present,it may beat s3 sales.

I'll wait a month or two, and I'm going to try to use a phone with WP8 ... And I'll read as much as I can. However, when the Galaxy S4 hits the market, it is certain that I will have new phone again. I like to try all the OS so I can have criteria and comparison. Merry Christmas...
Jose, 10 Dec 2012Hello, I am a user of a Galaxy S3, the S3 is a much better phone than Lumia920 in hardware and... moreif u want the best,keep ur s3 along wid ur new 920.u ll realise which one is d best and appreciate how wp8 is more simple and sexier than android.if u ll sell ur s3 u might require some getting used to because there is a vast difference between the idealogies and ui of the platforms,u may not compare them easily.

Theres a chance you will miss Android too much, WP8 is a young and unpolished platform, for now we dont even know if it has a future. If money is an issue i suggest you wait for the Lumia 620, its gonna be very very cheap and still have a dual core Krait processor. Then you can find out if you like WP8 before you sell your S3 and make the switch to high end WP8.
Some has already jumped the gun and declared WP8 to be a flop,
Hello, I am a user of a Galaxy S3, the S3 is a much better phone than Lumia920 in hardware and OS as well as in some features, but I read very good reviews of W8 and WP8 and specific of the Lumia920 , and I was thinking of buying the Lumia and test the phone and WP8.
I know that is not going to beat my S3 (the best phone ever), but tell me if it is worth selling the S3 and test the WP8. Because I quite like the Lumia920.
Excuse my English. Thanks...
Eagerly waiting for it to reach my country, but i'm kinda disappointed with the battery test results. Its endurance is only good. But i don't want a good result from a flagship, i rather want an extraordinary one, like 30 hrs of web browsing or 40 hrs of video playback. I don't care if it weighs up to 1 kg but i definitely want a huge battery.
Billa, 10 Dec 2012Your comment is very west
1st you lumia 920 use Its true that Android is better optimized for battery saving. Galaxy S3 is rated 50 hours on 2100mAh, Lumia 920 would do only 49 hours if it had 2200mAh, but it has only 2000 and does only 44hrs. Same with other ANdroid flagships you wanna compare with, for example HTC DROID DNA does 49 hours i think, and battery is only 2020mAh. Thats a quadcore with a 1080p display, yet it uses less battery than 920. It did 6h40m of webbrowsing, Lumia 920 did only 5h40m, the HTC did almost 18% more on only 1% bigger battery.
Hopefully WP8 will be updated soon to improve the battery times. WP7 was very terrible at first, Lumia 800 would not last a day, but they patched it up so it improved over time. Lets hope for fast improvements.
