Nokia Lumia 920: is it what you were hoping for?

Nokia Lumia 920: is it what you were hoping for?
To no surprise, the Nokia Lumia 920 was publicly announced today, thus officially becoming the company's Windows Phone 8 flagship device. And to some extent, it is the smartphone we expected to see, with the iconic Lumia design, PureView camera with Carl Zeiss optics, huge, high-resolution display, and fast, dual-core processor.

Yet perhaps not every one who watched the Lumia 920 being shown off on stage was impressed with it. Perhaps Nokia could have altered the design, or could have thrown in a much more potent camera than this 8-megapixel shooter. Some features in addition to what was demonstrated today could have been thrown in as well, just to make the smartphone stand out.

How about you, dear readers? Does the Nokia Lumia 920 meet your expectations, or would you rather say that you are underwhelmed with what the company's WP8 flagship turned out to be? Cast your vote in the poll below!

It is okay. About as good as I expected it to be.

Nokia could have created something much better than this. Other WP8 smartphones will be better.

Meh. Even now that the Lumia 920 is here, Windows Phone 8 is still not my cup of tea.

185 grams??? No thanks Nokia... I cant handle my galaxy note.. then I can forget this... maybe a smaller and thinner phone will do.

WoW.The weight of Ativ S with 4.8 inches display is just 135gr but it is 185 gr with 4.5 inches display.No microSD slot.Here is why Samsung win all the games;)

I agree, besides Samsung ATIV S has microSD support, which Nokia 920 lacks. And since I will be paying lots of money to get a new phone, I'd rather choose the one that has more options available :)

A little disappointing. I wanted the whole PureView experience, xenon and massive sensor, and I'm really annoyed with the lack of microSD expansion and no HDMI. Nokia can do much better. I would hardly call this a flagship. The Samsung looks to be better outside of the camera.

Maybe they will come out with a variation of it later, I don't think most people want a phone that thick hah

Haha 10.8 is perfect and I'll gladly take one thicker within reason as long as the quality of photos and videos are top notch. Plus you need room for that xenon. 15mm at hump and I'm cool with that.
