VPN support! Awesome. Wish I didn't have to wait until the end of Feb though.. Still... As the only thing that's missing that really bugs me, it's nice to hear something about it.

Not exactly my cup of tea, but it's amazing that this was shot handheld with a Lumia 920.

I have a (black) Lumia 920 for about a week now. I love the form factor and most of the OS. For instance the keyboard is excellent (I'm comparing to my HTC Desire HD) and I like the guessing of words I want to type in text messaging and email. I already used the Nokia Drive navigation app and it worked satifactorily. I haven't missed any Android apps, but have missed the easy way my address book was inegrated with my phone. Adding contacts, using telephone numbers from emails, etc was easier in Android. Typing part of a number to find contacts with same string of numbers is missed. Also it doesn't make sense that when searching for a contact in the phone app it without being specified otherwise only searches in contacts recently called instead of the whole contact list. The Android notification center and the way it could be used to go to the notifications made a lot of sense.

All my antennas seem to be of better quality than those on my HTC. With the same (now cut up) sim card I have better internet connection in buildings and the GPS antenna gets a signal in the whole of the car instead of only under the front windscreen. Call quality is good and hands free volume is indeed excellent.

I did already have the proximity sensor malfunctioning (triggered without cause) which prevented me hanging up when calling. Blowing on it to remove dust(?) did the trick.

All in all a mixture of seemingly excellent build quality with software that needs some improvement and the one error.

Right now I'm listening music at 15/30 volume via speaker. Loud enough. I'm using the free (for a month) spotify app. I don't get the service. Perhaps if I was constantly looking up music, but then I'd probably use youtube. I'm more of an album listener, apparently.

At that the standard player fails as it sees all songs of collections as a single album. Perhaps there is a workaround...

By the way Geek, any apps you'd recommend?

The lack of  removable battery as well as no sd slot on the 920 made it a no go for me.  All of my friends think I nuts but I am going with the Nokia 808

Just a quick update: The proximity issue worsened untill I had it for a month and a half non-stop. This was awful. I'm glad to say though that it is completely fixed by the latest firmware update: 1232.5957.1308.0003.

Bought one of these 2 weeks ago and absolutely love it. The interface is fantastic, and the screen in beautiful. I haven't had any issues with the proximity sensor when trying to hand up a call. I did put on one of those cheap universal (cut to fit) screen protectors from walmart and everything still works great.
