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 say so man.. If you're a resolution nut, the screen on the 920 is even sharper. If you're a social media nut the integration of twitter/facebook and such across the device just KILLS the nasty mess that is ios6 sharing. The performance is snappy, the marketplace has TONS of "discovery" paths to really find new apps and have fun. It syncs up with my windows 8 desktop and even my surface.. wifi performance is great and now that MS recently pulled off the wifi agreement you will have free wifi roaming almost everywhere. I wasn't much of an ios app nut myself, I had a few things I tinkered with but what I did want was a phone that made it easy to stay connected with my friends and family and boy howdy does the lumia 920 shine there - with the new groups feature, the (recently) released Skype update, facebook/twitter integration, people hub, skydrive integration.. love it.
and nokia throws in so many apps its not even funny. wife absolutely loves words with friends and nokia has a free version for 920 owners, same with draw something. nokia music is great (free) alternative to spotify (and spotify says their wp8 app will be out soon), xbox music works great, I have a music pass there I've had for years and its amazing. The Nokia Drive 3.0 just amazes me every time I use it with how quick/snappy it is and how detailed it is and how well nokia keeps on tweaking the crap out of it.
and ie10 us astoundingly fast for web surfing.. I mean, its nuts how fast this thing is.
