The second batch of Nokia Lumia 920 models went on sale at the Nokia Store in Shanghai and a long line snaked its way around the store while the yellow version sold out in just twenty minutes; the Nokia Lumia 920 could end up having spectacular sales numbers in China since the Nokia Lumia 920T variant will be sold to customers of the world's largest carrier, China Mobile...

It looks like a lady box that was shaped with an axe.
I find it strikingly boring honestly.
Just the other day me and my friend were having a drink in a cafe and with our devices reflecting the lights on the table, I was kind of shocked at just how much better the glaring, sleek, subtle, color changing curves on my Galaxy S3 look than the dim, bulky exterior of his L920

"Like it's been sculpted to the last detail".. Lol
The huge irony of your comment is that it EXACTLY IS SCULPTED TO THE LAST DETAIL

..and it is gorgeous.
Besides, I was talking about the front part in my comment, the back is covered anyway.
I have two cases for it - one thin, elegant matte case that I use mostly, and one thick hard case for some outdoor activities.
I'll post photos if you don't believe :p

Well, S3 inside a case is no longer "glaring, sleek, subtle, color changing curves" but rather mate and obviouse; on the other hand Nokia doesn't seem to need a case so it's design can shine.

That is just a case with a phone inside (a phone whose "glaring, sleek, subtle, color changing curves" can't be seen).
Sorry, mate, if I don't share your enthusiasm in [lack of] artistic "dresses" for gadgets; it's nature's fault because she made us different ;).

Sounds like you're envious of your friend's phone... it's alright, you should be.

Sure buddy.. makes sense for he's actually my best friend who always had a thing for Nokia.
He likes android but just loves Nokia more. But he is NOT a fanboy.
It's me who he asked for a final opinion about the phone, before making a decision on the purchase.
I explained all the advantages and shortcomings, especially regarding the OS, and then said go for it if you're okay with that.
So far, he is. It's a good phone.

But trust me.. I would never trade it for mine

True that chunky 12mm thickness does look ugly, Nokia were never know as slim looking phones, more into connecting people, unlike Android and iOs excels in both design and highend specs™®©

920 is a work of art, no doubt despite the poor OS.

Hopefully Nokia makes SailFish version of L920.

Man, wp8 isn't a poor OS. It may be called unpolished. Not poor. WP7 was. 7.5 was a little advancement and 8 is still better.

And what do we know about sailfish? Does it have its own ecosystem? About android compatibility there's no official word out. And I'm sure android fans will hate it because they'll think about the rumored compatibility as 'Theft'

WP8 file is very big and take a lot of precious memory, it has much less features than Android, customizability is very limited, live tiles are very annoyingly distracting...

I know Saifish is nothing w/o support of big players but with Nokia things will be different. Nokia has a ecosystem of its own, and porting an app from Android to Sailfish is very easy.

Android fans are unhappy about Sailfish? maybe some but I don't think it matters.

here's a vid about Sailfish.

Mate I do like Lumia 920 it is a good piece of technology. But the way you are chanting its name in this article doesn't make any sense.

And moreover when you say Google and Samsung are shocked or something like that, please refer to S3, Note2 and Google's own Nexus line. They can answer your each and every question.

there is not any single phone in android squad to match lumia 920 build quality... they are made of cheap plastic....

I agree that Nokia Lumia has good build quality but Nokia Lumia 920 is also made frome the same plastic as HTC One X or Samsung Galaxy S III or almost any other Android based device...

accept that the plastic and gorilla glass is thicker than any other android phone thus making it better

As I have said before I agree that Nokia Lumia 920 is strong build device and I agree that it is more durable than many other phones but plastic is the same Polycarbonate.

Now talking about thicknes Nokia Lumia 920 has Corning Gorilla Glass 2 which is actually 20% thinner than older Corning Gorilla Glass. Also both Nokia Lumia 920 and Samsung Galaxy S III use the same Corning Gorilla Glass 2.

And talking about body plastic thicknes, do you realize that body is not at the same thickness entirely it has different thicknes in different areas and that's mean that in some areas Samsung Galaxy S III may have even thicker body than Nokia Lumia 920 and vice versa in some areas Nokia Lumia 920 body may be thicker than Samsung Galaxy S III.

So question for you, how did you determined that Nokia Lumia 920 has thicker plastic, did you have made any measurements or what if so then maybe you would like to skare your results with us or maybe there is any reliable source which could prove your words about thicknes? Or maybe it is only your baseless and concocted a statement???
