When I came to a shop, the phone that impressed me most was L920, the design was beautiful, the phone felt very good in the hand, except the OS was a big let down. The interface looked boxy and boring in contrast to other top Android phones nearby.
There was no shortage, all colors were available and the phone was much cheaper than GS3 or One X, the phones 6 months older than 920.
I felt very bad for Nokia, the company deserves more for its super efforts. with the new super Androids to be released soon, 920 has very little chance.

Looking at the screen gives a feeling of claustrophobia ...

If they just would release a 'superphone' like the 920 running on Jelly Bean both of the above comments would be hushed. Much like Microsoft lately, Nokia has made a poor decision by essentially appealing (WP) and being available to a small market (AT&T). I own a 900 so I have no problems whatsoever with the OS, but it's hard not to admit that Android (ICE and up) feels more complete and streamlined.

I agree Nokia should release their flagships on more carriers. They have the name and cachet to get all the attention and sales they need. The constant clamoring for Nokia to build more models and keep improving the breed is proof of that. Many avid androiders are apparently too locked in to their OS to give WP a fair shot (as I have, and haven't looked back), but Nokia couldn't have built these devices without Microsoft's financial assistance, which wouldn't have come if Nokia hadn't agreed to produce Windows Phones as their exclusive smartphone line. There's a lot to envy, as the 920 is the most compelling phone on sale today. I I disagree though, as in my experience 7.5 and 8 feel more polished, refined, and RELIABLE than anything else I've used, including Jelly Bean.
How many androiders would actually buy (or have their parents buy) a 920 running android 4.2 with no other changes instead of their beloved samsungs and such?

While I agree that WP feels more refined and reliable, I personally find Anroid to be more intuitive and streamlined in a sense that many of the identical tasks that can be done on either OS take less steps with Android. I also think it's more complete because I don't understand why Microsoft half a$$es stuff like not giving users a color wheel for themes, not allowing for each tile to be a different theme color, or having each tile whatever size the user would like (only 3). I also think that instead of scrolling down to see more tiles it should be a swipe left or right.

Nokia is known for many things, camera, design build, innovation, ect. But keeping their hardware just on Windows is their own stupid, greedy mistake... MS doesn't respect Nokia, and Windows respect them even less! HTC WP8 gets more respect than Nokia. :(

The advantage of WP8 smartphones contrasts with Android's primary weakness: Android OS is full of security holes. People will eventually come to appreciate what Windows Phone has to offer, especially when RIMM finally bites the dust. Android is just one big collection of viri, and will never be accepted by the business community.
Nokia wil find their appeal in office environments that require PC integration and productivity, as well as enough power for home entertainment purposes...

You're an idiot...the Lumia 920 has been sold out forever. Get with the show, stupid!

The above reply was intended for "rusticguy", who thinks the 920 is a poorly received item. However, nothing could be further from the truth!

It's a contract with the second most expensive carrier in the US, much rather pay the full 450 and use it with h2o it won't get LTE but it'll still get hspa+ which is good enough, plus for 40 $ a month unlimited everything it can't be beaten, and no it does not require unlock, since h2o uses the same phones as at&t

The thing about any OS, cell phone or tablet, PC, etc, is that it will never be perfect. Nobody can say that they have ever used a perfect OS. Maybe DOS 2.0, because it was so basic, or a Commodore 64!
All carriers run specials on their devices around the holidays. BOGO offers are always smart to do especially around Valentines Day.
I can tell you that the Lumia 920 is selling quite well. No its is not selling Apple Or Samsung numbers, but that is to be expected. It is selling better than the Lumia 900, and over time as more and more people convert and realize it is a great Phone, and a great OS, next quarter will see even more units shipped/sold. How many people on the carriers already have smartphones and are locked into contracts and can't upgrade at a discount. I know 4 people who sold there iPhones to get a Lumia 920. Its not for everybody, and I was a skeptic also. I was a die hard Crackberry fan, and then the first touch screen blackberry fixed my addiction, meaning I no longer could stand the Storm. I went to Android, Great OS, had issues, but it was great. Never really liked the whole iTunes, iOs, but it is great also.
Windows was a breath of fresh air. The experience that Nokia has with there phones is not like the HTC to me.
Also, from a business prospective ATT is smart to push as many units out the door with a BOGO offer. In a few months ATT exclusive contract to offer the 920 will be up. So it makes sense to push these out the door before your competitor can get them like T-Mobile or Solavei Wireless also. I have a Lumia 920, Dev Edition, and I use it on the Solavei service, and it works just fine with H+ Speeds. Verizon will launch there version soon, and ATT will do their best to push as many units cheap, and free out the door.
