Great phone overall and I'm pretty happy with using it.

Design: Was sad to notice that the 920 doesn't feel as good as the 800. The polycarbonate feels strangely different, the sim tray doesn't fit perfectly, dust builds up under the front acing camera, It's still leagues away from Samsung phones but I know that Nokia can do a better job.

Display: great display, accurate colors, and super bright especially under sunlight. I suppose viewing angles could be better.

Camera(s): The main camera still amazes me. It takes great photos in every situation: be it low light or during the day. I haven't noticed the softness that everyone describes in daytime pictures. Pictures are a tad over-saturated ( which is very strange since Nokia has always been known to do ship cameras with accurate colors) and focusing takes longer than I would like resulting in me missing some moments.

Reception/Call Quality: perfect, no dropped calls in 2 months of usage. Nothing to say here.

Performance: except from a few rare dropped frames when opening apps from the start screen, performance has been great. Be it opening web pages, scrolling in pictures, or gaming.

Software: Windows phone 7 was good, and WP8 is great. Needs to be a bit more robust (I don't know how else to put it) but great experience overall.

Battery Life: If you don't use it a lot it can easily last a day, however whenever you start using it the battery drains dramatically. Battery app says that the average discharging rate is 16% meaning that it usually lasts me 6-7 hours which is just unacceptable.

Ecosystem: I have all the apps that I need and don't download new apps very often. 7/10 just because I'm comparing it to iOS and Android.
