I have been using the L920 since launch day, Coming from the iPhone, this phone is a welcome change. Having bought the iPhone 5, in which I was slightly disappointed, cause of nothing really changed besides the screen size and better cpu. Don't get me wrong I5 is a beautiful phone and I am very much invested in the IOS ecosystem, But I needed something different and the L920 fit the bill. The design and build quality is second to none, the display is crisp and the camera is right up there with the best. And the OS is refreshing. The wireless charger is a God send!! I have an NFC tag on my night dresser next to my bed that puts my phone to flight mode and I just lay it on my wireless charger, without fiddling with wires and trying to look for it in the dark while my wife is asleep is totally awesome.
Here is the what I didn't like about the L920, but these can be resolved through software updates and I hope they do.
Camera..Daylight pics are a little soft and accuracy is a little off. I believe when you take the pic the software kicks in and it adjust the photos like is was in a low light condition.
Re-Boot issues which I had a few times after installing a few apps and lock ups while. which I had to do soft re-boots. This has been addressed and a update is coming.
Battery Life could be better, might be better for others, but I am a heavy user. A replaceable battery would've been nice.
Browser needs to have back and forward buttons and better history implementation. Like if I exit the browser and I go back to the browser at a later time, and hit the back button, it brings me back to the home screen, it should be bring me back to every page I have went to.
So overall I am very much satisfied, and have not picked up my iPhone 5 in the past couple of weeks. I highly recommend this phone!
