lmao omg shocker your an android fanboy, i would never of guessed ( sarcasm to the max btw)

nokia's same old design.....weird becuase i have an 808 looks nothing like the 920, my n95 didnt either. nokia designs are among the best. the n9 (which should get the credit) looks great.

and the fact your saying''is dumb'' shows your a disgrace to any android users, giving them and everyone a bad name with your crap.

but you continue living in your sad fanboy world , others will move to new things and not be as single minded as you and they will be enjoying there tech alot more then you

Not good enough to recieve loud appreciation but worth notice! Nokia must adopt Android to regain its original status and trust.

I can't get excited about a single small retailer, but Nokia has a strong history (outside the U.S). and I suspect the same is true for Microsoft. And Apple is overpriced (relatively). I wouldn't be surprised if Windows Phone becomes the #2 smartphone platform in Europe within 3 years.

That's right. I said it.

I've been saying since WP7 first launched that by mid-decade Android and WP are likely to be the duopoly for cell phones, with Nokia and Samsung leading the sales charts. Bada, BB, Sailfish, or something else will take 3rd, and ios will fall by the wayside unless it gets a huge update to bring it up to true smartphone levels.

Where are the numbers in millions Nokia..........??? Apple sold 5 million iPhone5 in first three days of it's availability, whereas Samsung got orders for 10 million Galaxy S3 within first 10-15 days of it's availability; but we never get to hear this type of numbers from Nokia, we only get to hear, 'demand in huge'; 'it's completely sold out in this and that region' etc........... Nokia if demand is really that huge then please come out with numbers, this will boost the confidence of potential buyers...........

I think Nokia can't produce more than 5 million units per quarter.
So that could be the highest sales number one could hope for IMO.

But I really doubt this will be a true blockbuster.
Even the first Lumia 900 had some sensationalist initial reports, only to yield a few million units in TOTAL.
Plus, the reviews..nothing to write home about.

Go for the red. White is so common.

Personally I'll get the cyan, but the yellow is a close second.

Really pleased for Nokia that the phone looks like it might be a success :) Delighted with my red 920...took some tenacity to get one early in the UK but well worth it. Got a bit of a whinge on accessories, though...the 'free charger' is through a pain-in-the-backside rebate scheme and the lovely looking JBL Power Up speaker is $250 in the US but £285 in the UK...outrageous!

I can't not to notice that all those sales reports are from a marginal sources.
That British retailer had 3 Acer phones in top seven!
Even those basically non-existent Acer phones were selling better than the Galaxy s3.
Freaking sensational.
Now this retailer.. from Sweden.
Well hello, Sweden is a Nokia's neighborhood, a traditional stronghold.

Don't get me wrong, this device is undoubtedly selling really well but no need to go apesh!t about it.
It will get nowhere near the Galaxy S3' sales.

Should have done better. I would have rated the S3 lower, ip5 much lower (not even top 10, personally), and had the OneX+, OptimusG, and Lumia 920 scattered among the top 3, with the Note2 or WP8X as #4

That's your opinion. (BTW I think it's laughable to put WP8X) above the S3 )The chart reflects a cumulative opinion of experts who reviewed all of these phones.
I have some complaints(I think the One s sucks and would place the Note 2 separately) about it also, but that's just inevitable.
We can't all agree.
The point and fact is, 920 isn't anything exceptional according to majority of reviews.

Here is an attempt of a completely unbiased comparison between S3 and 920.
Pure specs:


The S3 HAS OTA vendor updates (I got my jelly bean that way.. it was perfectly seamless), and it HAS a radio.
It also has a HKMG produced chip, so the stated advantage for a Nokia chip is really not valid.
It also has a continuous auto focus, as well as the USB mass storage mode!
Now, you do the math.

im sure the 920 has mass storage, and as for the auto focus, im sorry but the s3's camera is pretty average to poor at best. the autofocus is real dim it also looses focus and spends a couple seconds trying to focus on nothing. so you cant hold that as an advantage lol

second i notice that you only ever claim unbiased when you can get it in favor of the s3. why are the reviews that show the 920 as better biased?

Gosh what a hypocrite you are.
Plus you are playing dumb!
Here I gave you the most "non biased " comparison, which happened to clearly give points to 920 on a false claims.
The real result is 19:16 in favor of Samsung.
On a pure spec basis, Nokia obviously wins in camera department, Samsung wins overall.
Deal with it.

Just to illustrate how you don't read posts at all, nor are trying to understand, nor can be taken seriously .. you say Nokia has mass storage mode.

And I said the comparison states that as an advantage over Samsung.. which also happens to have mass storage mode.
Got it now, genius?

keep attacking and defending lol

your just showing yourself as an angry fanboy, all your trying to do is try and prove the s3 is better and your doing it in a dire tragic way. both devices have there merits yet your consistant at trying to make sure android is seen as better

so err genius why you gotta defend samsung so much? and why you getting all angry bro-seph lmao

again couldnt care anyway

68. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)

haha no mate your the hypocrite, you class that as unbiased only as its gives the win to the s3, the ones that say the 920 wins you say are biased. your only saying this as your a android fan.

to me it makes no differance i couldnt care, but just had to point out how one sided you are. and werent you one of those defending google for how poorly there handling the n4 order process etc.

besides in the end the 920 brought more innovation to the table, which is what i like to see. now others will step up to compete.

so deal with that
