    I've just played with the new Nokia 920..and I find myself strangely attracted to Nicole kidmans brake callipers on a yellow Ferrari ....I've been an avid iPhone apple man since 1990....please help curb my fetish desire to purchase a luminar 920...please apple make the iPhone 6 soon with the screen size of a 920, girly bold colours like an iPod....or just shoot me !

    It seems like the two people before me said both things that I wanted to say.

    Anyway, to the OP: why not just buy a Lumia 920? It won't kill you to try another phone if you like it. And don't worry, we won't ban you from Apple products if you do.

    I used to wonder why people hated apple fanboys. It's nice to finally know.

    Go buy it! It's pretty good. Though you might miss some of the Apps you have with your iPhone as the Windows Phone market isn't as great as the Appstore. The Marketplace though has 140K Apps which is not bad so I'm sure you'll be able to find an alternative to your app.

    I see no problem with having multiple devices !

    Use the alternative to iOS and iOS devices forum board to discuss your findings on it too !

    I was in the market for a new phone a month ago, I crossed off the Lumia 920 for the simple fact that Windows Phone doesn't have me addicted.:D

    I tried one for a week. Then promptly exchanged it for my current iPhone.

    I had a similar experience with the GS3, but got a refund instead.

    If you want to try something different, go ahead. But, what I learned was there's no better mobile device than the iPhone.

    I like the 8x better. I have one right now on my tmobile line. Pretty nice except for the lack of apps on the Windows store. 8x feels nice in the hand.

    OP, I think you should try it out. If you don't like it you can always sell it and come back to iOS.

    The 920 is an excellent device. Its screen is super easy to see outdoors, it has a really loud speaker, and takes pretty nice pics at night.

    Agreed. I like the htc 8x better than the Lumia.

    Im still enjoying my 800 after 13 months :)
    Why would you want a 8x over a 920 tho? :confused:

    The 920 feels like a brick in your hand. The 8x is sleeker and thinner.

    HTC 8x: 132,35 x 66,2 x 10,12 mm, 130 grams
    Lumia 920: 130,3 x 70,8 x 10,7 mm, 185 grams
    iPhone 5 w/ Otterbox: 135.12 x 69.9 x 16.18 mm, 226 grams

    Lumia 920 could be too big and heavy for small girls, maybe consider 820 instead: 123,8 x 68,5 x 9,9 mm, 160 grams
    Yes, its heavy too and may break your house if dropped on the floor.

    Since this became an 8x vs 920 thread...

    8x pros:
    better battery life in real world use

    920 Pros:
    Exclusive software (most of the useful stuff ties into the camera)
    Arguably best camera on the market
    Larger storage capacity (32gb vs 16gb)
    Wireless charging (Verizon version of the 8x has this, but we aren't speaking verizon)
    Free wireless charger (if purchased on contract)
    Nokia customer care said to rival that of Apple (still inferior since they don't really have stores to just bring your product to, but they are supposedly really helpful and accommodating over the phone.
    Price: cheaper both on and off contract (retail)

    Some people praise the 920 for its camera. I don't. It's one reason the phone is so damn big.

    On iOS, photo apps accomplish image stabilization by using on-board sensors leaving the phone to be as thin and light as possible.

    Not to mention there are a lot more photo apps on iOS. A lot more. A whole lot more.

    Not true. The whole warranty process with Nokia is atrocious compared to Apple's service.

    The only reason to get a Lumia 920 is for Nokia Drive IMHO. The camera may be very good at low-light conditions but thats it. For everything else. The iPhone's camera is equal or superior.
