I have the Yellow Lumia 920… gorgeous and such an amazing camera, screen, built, etc. The Yellow color is something to behold -- loud and beautiful. The quality of craftsmanship is outstanding, from the Zirconium buttons and camera plate to the exacting machined polycarbonate body. The glossy finish was the right choice (I was very skeptic until I held it in my hands). The weight is... perfect, because of the way the handset feels in the hand (also remember this is a massive 4.5" screen phone... comparisons to a 4" phone are... facepalm-worthy).

WP8 is an improvement in almost every way. The new Start screen is much more useful. It's choke-full of features from Family and Kid's Room to more flexibility in settings. The Skydrive integration is very powerful. Lens, among other integrated features is way ahead of other mobile OSes.

The only negative aspects I could point out are the camera app which is missing some of the granularity found int he WP7.5 sw. Also, Nokia Maps felt short on the promise to combine the strengths of Bing Maps and other services - we still have to deal with the nuisance of using two apps (Maps and Drive) unlike the better Google Maps experience. But hey, Nokia Maps at least work and I hear they're awesome in Europe and other countries.

Design……………………. 9/10 (an iteration of a previous design but still striking, “tank” durability)
Display…………………….9/10 (responsive, great colors, blacks could be better)
Cameras………………….9/10 (bestlow-light performance, camera sw a step back despite Lens)
Reception/Quality………..9/10 (can’t complain)
Performance…………….10/10 (speedy sucker)
Software…………………..9/10 (WP8 is pure pleasure, Nokia Maps not as good in the US as Bing)
Battery life…………………9/10 (surprisingly epic, need to try with NFC on)
Ecosystem…………………8/10 (powerful Skydrive integration, Xbox, Sharepoint, Outlook, Office, Nokia exclusive apps, 125k other apps, but still missing some key apps)
