No, battery life won't get better after a year. If you charge your smartphone everyday, battery life will deteriorate over time. This is true for any Lithium-ion battery.
Don't worry about charging it every night, that's best practice for these phones. I've been doing that to my trophy for a year and the battery life is getting better, not worse. I used to top it off in the afternoon, now I don't worry about it.

I can deal with the speaker phone issues, but get an alarm clock if you rely on your phone to wake you up.

Having to charge the battery nightly is pretty much across the board standard with most smartphones. iPhones and maybe Samsung Galaxy Note 2's being the small exception of phones where light use might get you through 2 days. I can go 2 days between charges on my iPhone, but I charge it pretty much every evening regardless if it is only down to 70%.
If you are coming from a feature phone then you will see a dramatic difference in battery life, no doubt. I remember my last feature phone I could go 4-5 days before charging.
As far as wearing out the battery goes, charging it nightly should be fine. The battery life will degrade but I think it should get you through 3 years of use without needing to be changed. What would be detrimental to the battery is letting it discharge fully or charging it in elevated temperatures (like leaving it on the charger in your vehicle on a hot summer day).

I dunno about the 920 but my 8X hasn't rebooted at all since I got it over a week now. I've also installed a good deal of apps and games etc so I don't think it's a specific app problem but more of a quirky firmware/driver problem that should get fixed soon.
