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.

Build quality

* Very solid but still has some creaking as plastic (You can feel it if you push the back and right side in rotation) * SIM card tray doesn't align properly with the body when SIM card is loaded (also creaking) * But the overall feeling is quite nice
Reception
8.0
Just ok.
Call quality
9.0
Loud and clear enough.
Internet
6.0
The rendering is fast, but the download/upload itself feels slow when using 3G. Maybe the modem chip is inferior.
Multimedia
5.0
* No random seek function in Music, You can only fast forward/rewind. Also you can't immediatly stop the music and can only leave it paused. (There are 3rd party apps to stop music) So ridiculous. * No genuine YouTube app. You are forced to use oddly-designed 3rd party apps. Furthermore, some of the YouTube apps are not free or contain advertising banner. * Don't even imagine powerful and fully-customizable video player apps similar to MX Player, Dice Player, etc. in Android.
Camera
9.0
* It is able to take incredibly good night shot as tiny phone camera. Very bright and clear. Thanks to F2.0 lens and OIS. * Sometimes it sets strange white balance, but not a deal-breaker.
UI speed
9.0
Fast and fluid. No lags.
Everyday usage
7.0
Maps are terrible if you live outside U.S. (and a handful of countries) It's just blank.
Text input
9.0
Very light & responsive keyboard. (If you use Android you probably know how keyboard cannot be 'responsive'.) Also supports a variety of input methods in multi-languages.
Display
9.0
Well saturated, warm color tone, deep black, excellent outdoor visibility, high PPI.
Battery
8.0
Not bad, not great.

Pros

  • Great camera, especially at night
  • Truly unique & organized design
  • Good feeling to touch, hold & handle
  • Excellent display with special treat for outdoor visibility
  • Sleek & useful preloaded apps by MS & Nokia

Cons

  • Slow 3G modem speed/response
  • Lack of various multimedia control functions
  • Miserable support for Google services like YouTube

Rock solid

aybabtu has owned it for less than year before publishing this review

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.

Build quality
10.0
Easy to handle and rock solid build. Feels like slab of steel :). No creaking of anykind etc.
Reception

Comparing to my other phone (SGS4) this phone doesnt break connection in areas with poor reception.
Call quality
10.0
Call quality is excellent. Loud if needed and crystal clear.
Internet

If there would be other viable options to choose as default browser this would be 10. WIFI&4G(LTE) speeds are top notch. Doing side by side comparison with SGS4 this phone beats it hands down in download&upload speeds.
Multimedia
9.0
Music players is really smooth overall though it could use better playlist management options. Overall with loudspeakers and default applications for video&music etc. the experience is great
Camera
10.0
Camera just cannot be described by words :). It is really amazing. With OIS it is really hard to fail at taking pictures no matter are you stationary or in move. Overall photo&video quality is only matched by other Pureviews. Fantastic shots in dim/dark.
UI speed
10.0
Quick&smooth no matter what you do and no need for restarts or RAM managers as androids do.
Everyday usage
10.0
I like it very much and pretty much everything can be accessed & done quickly though it lacks some shortcuts and features like notification center which is really handy to have. Perhaps some have issues with WP8 but often their visions of it are just prejudices which can be overcome. It aint android like tinkerer's toolbox.
Text input
10.0
Best phone what I've used. Even when the phone doesnt have autocorrect features available the misspellings became extinct with this phone. With SGS4 which I have had for long time I'm constantly doing misspellings but this is quite much handled with autocorrect.
Display
10.0
Perhaps it could be a bit bigger for watching videos etc. Overall it is really nice.
Battery
10.0
1/3 smaller than SGS4 but in my usage it outlasts it no matter what I do. Hardware wise they are from different planets but still. Doesnt have heating issues like my SGS4 has :(.

Pros

  • Rock solid build, quite close to 3310 ;).
  • Top notch Camera
  • Music&audio
  • Smooth UI
  • FM radio & wireless charging
  • Perfect navigation
  • Large internal storage which aint bloated full like SGS4 is
  • Office integration
  • Call Quality
  • Excellent power conservation

Cons

  • WP8 lacks some features but they are coming in upcoming updates
  • Heavy, it can be used to smash things ;)

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...

Nokia 920

Karykzen has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

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...

Have not used it long enough to determine my average life, but NOT having an icon present at all times on the home page is very anoying.

Pros

  • Camera
  • Call quality better than iPhone
  • Office integration
  • Can use Xbox Game app to type messages vs. using hand controler
  • Being abble to pin apps, photos, etc.

Cons

  • No MicroSD slot
  • Big but it does fit in a dress shirt pocket
  • For SOME apps, no home option, that is you have to back up though all the stuff (home phone's home page)
  • Would expect web pages to load faster than their do.

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.

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.

I think any smartphone these days would get a score like this. Usually I'm able to last through the whole day but if I watch shows and news on the bus then it's a different story. With texting, emails, notes, and music it has pretty damn good battery life

Pros

  • Beautiful, unique design
  • WP8 OS highly reliable and stable
  • Exclusive apps and games from both WP and Nokia
  • Wireless charging, NFC capable
  • XBox games and achievements
  • Beastly camera

Cons

  • It so heavy my hand hurts :(
  • It so big I can't handle it :(
  • Not enough apps I only have 300+ apps installed so far, need more :(
  • The phone gets so hot it burns my hand :(
  • Hint: Search "sarcasm" on Dictionary.com

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.

Battery always depends on the staff you do with your phone. I realized that when playing games that pull down advertisements, the battery gets drained very fast. But, if you do other staff, like makeing phone calls, listening to music, reading online articles, taking some pictures on the way, the battery will get you through the day.

Pros

  • Fast and fluid OS
  • Best camera (video especially good)
  • Very good microphone
  • Perfect integration of maps, navigation, transport data
  • Outstanding design
  • Wireless charging

Cons

  • Dust under FFC
  • Sometimes overheats

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 have a bad habit of not having the screen of the phone not touch my face and that for some reasons makes me inaudible to the person in trying to talk to.

Dissapointing !!!!

safi.2905 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

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.

Build quality
10.0
Nokia's hardware durability is legendary. The phone is slick and beautiful. The screen's glass is tough and curved. Both matte and glossy finishes feel very high quality.
Reception
9.0
I am around areas with poor signal, but this phone has picked up bars where my other phones could not.
Call quality
9.0
Exceptional call quality. Clarity and adjustable volume are satisfactory.
Internet
10.0
Blazingly fast LTE speeds combined with Internet Explorer 10 makes me feel like I'm using a desktop computer. Sometimes I don't even load mobile websites, since the phone's browser can easily render PC-layout websites.
Multimedia
8.0
On-board the phone Xbox Music and Video work well, but the PC software to manage locally-stored media files on the phone is messy and feature-less, a terrible degradation from the outstanding Zune software used with Windows Phone 7 devices. Video playback and sound quality are excellent.
Camera
10.0
Best camera I've ever seen on a smartphone. Takes excellent low-light photos with Nokia PureView technology.
UI speed
10.0
Windows Phone 8 OS is the fastest mobile operating system I have ever used. Initial loadup time, multitasking, and opening applications all happen in a snap. One of my favorite parts about this phone is its speed.
Everyday usage
10.0
Dynamic OS gives you relevant content from social networks and lives tiles give you reminders daily. I use the phone multiple times every day. Remember to keep an eye on your battery, you'll possible need to toggle WiFi, tap+send, and Bluetooth to save battery, as well as use the Battery Saving service.
Text input
10.0
Best autocorrect and word-guessing technology in any keyboard I have ever used. The keyboard is also packed with a ton of emoticons.
Display
10.0
Beautiful display with an extremely high refresh rate means NO blur and an outstanding picture. This phone delivers one of the best viewing experiences there can be on a mobile device.
Battery
8.0
Comparable with other LTE smartphones, nothing extraordinary, but satisfactory.

Pros

  • Fast, gorgeous UI
  • Display
  • Camera & PureView
  • Keyboard & Autocorrect
  • Processor & Battery management
  • Build Quality & Durability
  • NFC & Wireless Charging
  • Built-in Apps are incredible
  • Outdoor use
  • 32 GB capacity + 7+ GB of SkyDrive space
  • Social Media Integration

Cons

  • Larger size & Weight
  • Missing some key applications from Apple's Appstore and the Android Market
  • Local music management
