Is it amazing enough to convert an iPhone 5 user like me who has a lot invested in apps? I like everything Windows 8 and the 920 does look super sweet. iOS just seems to be getting stale despite the amount of apps I've bought.


I'd personally hold out now that Ive has an input on the design of iOS. I agree it's become a bit stale but personally think it's all going to change, he is Apple's most powerful resource and i'm sure he'll deliver something amazing.

iOS is boring me and so is the iPhone so I may be looking at a 920 for my next phone or something.

It's really impossible for anyone to answer this for you beyond what I've already said that its a pleasure to use, deeply integrated and hugely satisfying. iOS pales in comparison to how consistent, smooth and integrated wp8 is and android just doesn't have any consistency at all across its platform either. Android has some nifty card features, but I expect we will see those two.

It really comes down to what you want, and the 920 delivers for me.


I see. I certainly like the look of WP8 over ios or android.

Also another thing, how does the phone look and in feel in person?

I got the matte black, it looks and feels amazing. Screen is higher resolution than any other device I've seen, the weight and balance of the phone is amazing and its just big enough that it fits my hand and I can use my thumb to do everything. The colored 920's have a glossy finish, which i'm not too fond of.. wish they stuck with the finish that was on the 900s

The only thing I want from the Lumia that the S3 doesn't offer is that damn camera software!

You have to go to a store that has a demo unit yourself and try it. I like the weight of it. the phone is balanced in your hand. I have an iphone 4s and I feel its too light and thin. IF you have big hands you will like the look and feel.

I upgraded from the iPhone 4S to a red 920 and I will never look back! It is an absolutely gorgeous phone and simple to use. The social integration is amazing compared to Apple's offering. Even the simple act of downloading the free ringtone app and being able to get custom ringtones directly on the phone with no hassle and mess is what I missed so much using an iPhone. Even my buddy ordered one via the $49 Walmart special this weekend because he was so impressed with it compared to his iPhone. I can't wait to see what MS & Nokia pushes out in the coming months to make the phone even better. I highly recommend it to anyone that is looking to get one.

It's not so much that it does things other smartphones don't (or can't) - although there are some very unique things that Nokia has done on the hardware front... but I would say its integration with services and social networking services is what sets it apart.


I ordered one, and I hope I didn't make a mistake. I have no use or interest in "social integration" as I don't bother with any of that. I mainly got it because I have an android phone, and I wanted to have another OS to play around on.

I am guessing I will have to "upgrade" to Windows 8 on a more permanent basis for PC integration as well... Not a big deal I guess, as long as there are ways to remove the unnecessary crap Microsoft loaded onto W8. I love the look of the OS on a phone or tablet, but not on the desktop.

But I really hope "social integration" isn't why this phone is being touted as amazing, otherwise it will be subpar next to my android phone. I have 14 days to try it out, so when it gets here I suppose I will find out myself.

well I am really liking my 920. I was getting impatient with the late release date and was hours away from getting a S3. But I'm glad I waited and got it. My iPhone 5 was fine but this is a lot nicer. the sheer size felt a little odd but 3 days later its not an issue. I also got my wireless charger for free from my AT&T pre-order. Its on there now. A lot of people have had battery issue's and I was one of them. But today after a couple of days of letting it drain and charging it's starting to get better.

Not sure if serious. Even my 900 is great coming from the iPhone 4.

Wow that is sure helpful. How about you actually give some thoughts on it and not just an insult. I could just say your friend sucks rats-ass but I won't :)
