Got my yellow one on Saturday, and I have been loving it. So much more snappy than the 900. Love the smaller tile size. Love the kids corner. Still waiting for my TMZ, Papa Johns, and FIOS apps. Come on WP8!

id like to know this: do you need to put it on the wireless charging pad front upwards? if yes, does any (any i mean any) light blink or constantly lighten? or can you also put the phone front down on the charging pad and it still charges? thing is, i have it next to my bed and any light would disturb me. thanks a ton :-)


There's no light on the phone that lights up while charging but there is a small led on the front side of the charger (the opposite end to where the power cord meets the charging pad) that you could cover up if it's too annoying.

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 too am in a similar situation as you. Good to see 920 getting some love and I don't know I should get an android or a wp8 phone. Decisions decisions.

can you do me a big favour? id like to know this:

For the charging pad, a blinking light means that the charger and the phone isn't properly connected. It needs to be a nonblinking steady light to be charging. When it's done charging, it would just slowly blink occasionally. And yeah, the phone screen does need to be facing upwards.

Reviews have mentioned that it feels heavy as lead. Do feel that while using it in day to day life?

Nope this is the biggest BULL comment I have seen.

It is actually somewhat heavy, for being a phone. I've had it slide off of various furniture when I've set it down a couple times now.

But it is nothing like lead, as they say. A bit heavier than most phones but nothing worth complaining over.

Here's some video of a concert that was shot on a Lumia 920.



Pretty impressive.

I can't get a 920 anywhere here in Greece, my only chance, or rather option is to just get one unlocked from a MS store when I visit the US in a few weeks time.

and same here in the UK. I'm not dropping my deal i have with my current provider (3) just to get a 920.
Is a shame but it's just not happening.

Yep.
I have a great deal with O2 (which is about to get even even better now my contact is up for renewal!).

Would be looking to get this but some of the apps I use aren't available which will put me off big time. But when the exclusivity deal is over I might get one. For now though I am happy with my Galaxy Nexus.

Until it comes to Amazon, I am put off buying it else where as I don't want an imported one thanks.

My iPhone 4 recently died and my phone insurance sent me a temp phone while it's being fixed (turned out to be a Nokia Lumia 800 because that's the only phone they had that takes a micro sim), since using it and WP 7.5 I've been impressed enough to order a 920. Can't wait.
