Good performer in basic functionality, plus great camera.

It's an impressive device for Non-Windows Phone users also. I prefer Lumia 920's design much more than the 'revised' Lumia 925's. The severe lack of support for Google services will be painful for former users of Android, but It's still irresistibly attractive. It's a good option if you decide to leave (at least temporarily) Google services.

Almost year with this phone and it was best time of my life :). Phone-wise. WP8 is butter smooth to use and has really good integrated utilities (office&maps). Camera is absolutely fantastic and is only matched by other Nokia phones. After using this with OIS which help to get succesfull shots one other another using other phones without it makes me cry. Low light photography is something what you are going to love with this.

best performance and great camera. It changes the phone completely every time. Its like having a new phone everyday. the most impressive of which are the optical image stabilization and the PureMotionHD+ display. This camera only beats to Lumia 1020....

Thumbs Up to Nokia Lumia 920
Thapauv has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
More than 3 months with Nokia Lumia 920 and I am absolutely loving it. From build quality to camera, I am very impressed. OS is very responsive. Average battery usage is quiet good. Only thing that should be upgraded are the notification display and closing the running apps. Other than that its an excellent phone.

Love this phone!
withbreaththatisbaited has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
When my contract was up and I was ready to get a new phone (more than ready, actually), I was still trying to decide between an iPhone, Android, or the Dark Horse candidate: the Windows phone. After a trip to the AT&T store and a discussion with a friend who has had both the iPhone and WP, I decided to go with the Lumia 920. So happy with my decision! Both my friend and the AT&T salesman recommended the WP, even though everyone else I asked generally said iPhone (when they had only ever used an iPhone). I love that it comes in more colors than just black and white (although ugly cases are covering up my beautiful yellow shiny phone). The live tiles are easy to navigate and way more fun to look at than iOS icons.
Apps: Of course, I wish the app store was more loaded (Instagram and Candy Crush are my current desires), but really, the apps I truly need are there in some form, and the selection is growing.
Camera: Very happy with this camera, especially when you combine it with Nokia Lens like Blink or Cinemagraph. Takes great video too.
Build: Again, I love the color choices. It is a big phone, but I easily adjusted to the size and weight. It still fits into pockets and it's less likely to get lost in my purse. In fact, now when I pick up my old phone, it seems miniscule in comparison and I wonder how I ever managed to type a coherent sentence on it. I have resisted getting a case for it because I love the yellow color so much, but I did drop it a few weeks ago on concrete and...

First I have to say, I went from an iPhone 3Gs to the Nokia 920 Windows phone. An issue I had at the beginning is that my XBox live account is my personal email and not a @live account. I could not download apps until I verified my email but no email was sent. It took me logging into the Windows 8 phone web page (same account but different from Xbox live web page) and clicking on "send email verification" before I could verify my account. Thank You user forums!
While not a negative, the phone is larger than I expected but it does fit in pockets. I'm use to the smaller iphone, so this will take time to get use to.
Even with a protective case, I am afraid to drop this phone. My iPhone 3Gs was dropped a lot and I never had any cracking. Just given the feel of this phone, I’m afraid it will crack if I drop it from some of the heights my old phone fell from.
The camera lens on the back is too low for me. My finger sits right on it when I hold it in my palm, so I am constantly wiping my finger’s oil off of it.
My only issue about some of the apps is going backwards. I have a few where after I post a message I have to go backwards though it all to get back to the home screen.
I also miss being able to swipe my finger to the right over an email to delete it.
Battery - my only complaint here is that there is no permanent icon that shows up on the main home screen until the batter gets low.
The Good things:
The people app integrates with facebook nicely without the facebook...

Does everything I expect of a smartphone and does it well. The only minus are the hilariously poor earphones. The only comfort is that most other phones come with equally terrible buds.
Strangely, the GMail client is much better than that on Android, at least when using Google Apps for Businesses. This, of course, is inherent with Windows Phone 8.

Phone is a beast, period.
david90531 has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
First off: Liked Windows Phone 7, LOVE Windows Phone 8. Really great improvements and new features, I feel like using a brand new system. And then the phone itself, c'mon it's Nokia, love the innovations that it brings, the design, and of course, the camera. Simply the best phone/smartphone I've owned. Using it since November and it still feels like a new phone to me every day.
Make the #switch before it's too late!

Nokia has done great job with Lumia 920. WP8 is fresh and speedy UI, I like it lot. Free navigation is usefull. Skydrive is nicely integrated in UI and has lot of free space (7GB).
In everyday use Lumia 920 does the job very well and WP8 has it's benefits in many things. It's easy to use and have allready quite good access to configuration.

It just gets better with time
sabity has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
I bought this phone right after it became available in November last year. In the beginning there were some minor issues with it (syncing with my accounts didn’t work, battery life was poor). I never returned the phone, but somehow after a month I stopped experiencing any of these problems. It also took me some time to figure out how to use the Windows operating system. But now, having used it over three months, I really got to like it. It is as fast and responsive as on the first day. The camera is great, and no other phone comes close to it. I also bought a JBL PowerUp speaker, and enjoy the advantages of NFC and Wireless charging. The fact that it uploads automatically my pictures to skydrive is great. I never need to transfer pics again to my laptop, since they are already there when I switch it on. The windows store is also growing, and I don’t have an app which I would miss. As time passed, I started to love this phone more and more, and today I can recommend it without any reservation.

Pretty good phone
aaflack18 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
I upgraded to this phone from my faithful Samsung Focus (had an issue with the power button getting itself stuck... Got tired of it doing that)
first thing I noticed was the difference in speed. Frickin thing just blew me how fast and fluid everything is. Looked for an explanation for why the phone was so heavy. Wireless charging coils. Really? I just think that was unnecessary. I prefer to have my phone plugged in and charging.
Never was an app person, so this OS suited me best. I hope Nokia keeps putting out better phones. Write this review using my Nokia 920.

I was eagerly waiting for this phone but after using it, it left me highly dissapointed!
No doubt the user interface is somewhat refreshing with live tiles and i din feel there was any shortage of apps as most of the commonly used apps were present.
But one thing problem which i encountered from almost day one was FREEZING of the Phone. The interface kept on hanging every now or then i had to reboot the device atleast three to four times a day. I took it to #Nokia but they said there is a software issue to whichi when asked how to fix it they had no answer!! a very apalling way to handle a customes complaint. and then i dont know what so hue and cry about the camera.. i found it OK nothing too astonishing or ground breaking. But the problem of freezing is something to look into coz one of my friend also encountered the same problem to which again #Nokia people denied to acknowledge. SHamefull!!

Dont know why ppl say this phone as bulky nd heavy, its comfortable to hold than the thinner iphone and also better build quality.The camera with optical stabilization is awsome unlike the fake digital gimmicks in other phones .Wireless charging is also there.So these all may be the reason for its thicker body .Without knowing all these ppl starts bashing this beautiful phone.

Potentially great phone undone by abysmal battery life
gilbilly has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
I am writing this review today to express my dissatisfaction with the Lumia 920. I have purchased this device on two occasions and both times I have encountered the same issue. The first time I purchased it was second hand and it was one of the first few released in Canada (came factory unlocked and all). Although the camera was amazing, the build was excellent and the exclusive apps were fantastic (Nokia Maps and Drive to be precise) the battery life was abysmal. Despite multiple factory resets and even attempting to run it without additional apps I could get only 6 hours of usage on average which is unacceptable. I quickly sold it on Kijiji. After a few days I had convinced myself that it must have been just pre-release model glitches (I had owned a #Lumia800 previously and had no such issues). Being without a phone and unable to get my hands on an actual release model from Rogers, I ended up going with a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (and have been very satisfied with it). Up until the Lumia line I have been an Android user for the last few years now and am accustom to 12-15 hours at least. Before Android came out I was a windows mobile user having owned numerous models but my first ever phone was a Nokia 3300. At the time this the 3300 was to me such an innovative phone, stylish, different and one of the first phones to support MP3 playback. It was my fond memories of my 3300 that prompted me to try the Lumia 800 and eventually the 920 a second time because to me they embodied those...

Arguably the best phone on the market
davidvkimball has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
The Nokia Lumia 920 is the flagship Windows Phone 8 device we have all been waiting for. There is almost nothing bad to say about this phone. The screen is brilliant, the OS is fast, and it's packed with so many fantastic features from Nokia. You will not find a competing smartphone with a better camera, higher resolution screen, or more fully-featured GPS/navigation software. Praises for both the software and the hardware of the device.
It cost me $99 for the phone with a two-year contract and a wireless charger. I have been happy with the phone since.
