been using this phone for past few days and thought id give my opinion... switched from a galaxy s3 which i had rooted on to cyangenmod kitkat version.
I do miss the quick toggles from android which the windows phone lacks badly such as wifi and bluetooth toggles, but apart from that windows isnt as bad as some android fanboys here make it out to be. Its actually a fresh experience although I am waiting for quick toggles to become available!! No lag and everything is quick and fluid.
The battery is lasting me about 2 days with light use and 1 day with heavy use - 30mins of calls - 1 hour browsing - 1 hour gaming and a few pictures and videos. I charge the phone every night or every other night which isnt too bad.
The phone is amazing to hold and the weight of it feels amazing in your hands. It feels special everytime I pick it up and looks absolutley stunning in white. Absolute quality!!!!
The app store had pretty much everything i need and isnt as bad as people are making it out to be! I havnt tried mobile games as i only really play emulators on my phone and windows has amazing emulators!!
Im glad I bought the phone and have no regrets about switching. Hope you guys find this helpful :)
using this phone for around 1yr, starting liking it, after installing lumia black, hope lumia blue(8.1) will volume and notification light issue....
will this phone support 8.1? hope 8.1 has notification light, (something like windows icon at the bottom, lights when there is missed call etc....
BEST PHONE EVER
the only thing that truecaller doesn't popup ??!!
can any one tell me what to do
It's been 4 months since I bought this phone, and it's Incredibly Great ,, it beats out all of the Samsung Galaxies, screen scrolling is like silk ,, battery takes 24-36 hours to run out ,, and the best thing at all, is that it has never crashed so far ,, unlike the android devices I had, they start crashing after less than one week of buying them O_O
Junayed321, 28 Feb 2014Buying this phone was the greatest mistake of my life. Any average iPhone or Android will have... moreI think you're wrong my friend, or the place where you bought your phone sold you a corrupted one, because I'm using the phone for about 3 months now, and it's very very awesome,
- Heating is nothing to mention in comparison with Samsung's Galaxy S2/3 [personally tried it].
- Battery runs for 24-36 hours IF I use games/web surfing, and it takes about 2-3 days if I use only calls.
- App Store, well it's Microsoft's issue, but still a I found everything I need so far! if not, there're a really good alternatives [for me =) ]
- Lagging? come on,, My Android phones (LG Optmius Black, S2 and S3) are like Zombies in comparison with this,, at least this one never crashed!
and take it easy, the WP 8.1 is coming and it appears that it has a lot of cool features ,,
Good Luck ;)
Great phone. Using it for 6 weeks without any issues. Took some time setting up the phone correctly, made sure I had all the updates. battery live is good in my opinion. Still 40-50% battery left when I get home at 18:00. This is after lots of whats app, sms, some e-mails, a few phone calls, playing online scrabble throughout the day, taking a few photographs etc.
For me, a stylish easy to use phone. BTW a lot more apps available for these phones.
Buying this phone was the greatest mistake of my life. Any average iPhone or Android will have a VERY when I say VERY I mean VERY HARD time with this phone. Its heavy, heats up quick and the ONLY good thing about it is the camera. Poor app selection and very slow app opening and closing time with way too much animations slowing the responsiveness of opening or closing any app. I would suggest not to consider Windows Phones for users of Android or iOS. Buy them only if you've used Nokia all your life!
the lumia 920 is the worst phone i ever bought, never again nokia,the phone heats up, battery life is weak,had to take it in for repairs 3 times in a space of 6 months from new.the list goes on, going for android or iphone
Can anyone tell me 'what is the cost of 920 display glass ' only glass not the touch, if anyone knows it rly me soon
Zune....u still live in this age and Zune doesn't work with wp8,Microsoft discontinued it already...ur whole comment obviously shows that u don't own or even know anything about wp8 or Lumia 920.
H, 26 Feb 2014Lumia 920 or Xperia SL ???? Lumia 920 off...lumia 920 is alot better overall in terms of specs . Not to mention that xperia sl is no longer getting updates while the 920 still has a year of so of updates. Even xperia sp won't be updated beyond kitkat
H, 26 Feb 2014Lumia 920 or Xperia SL ???? Xperia SL is still in ICS OS, you can go for Xperia SP, it is better, but if you like 32 GB internal memory, more apps and games, file manager, go for Xperia SL.
Swapping my current android phone for this lumia. Hope Nokia and windows don't let me down! Cant wait for it to arrive tommorrow :D
i bought a lumia 920 and it fell down. it was not coming on when switched on. my dealer helped me fix it but i dont think my lumia is as good as new anymore.
