Windows 7: Thinking to buy a Nokia Lumia 920

Thinking to buy a Nokia Lumia 920

Hello guys, as mention above, I'm thinking to buy a Nokia Lumia 920, and I wondering, since is a new phone, release not long ago, is it worth the money compare to other phone? Or it is a good/very good phone just for entertainment? Or is it good as other phone that can serve me well for my daily life?

I love to use it for entertainment purpose, as well maybe shoot some photos, but I'm not that kind of guy that use phone to play or entertain all the time, usually I use PC. I usually use my phone for music, photo, messaging and surf the internet.

I've read a lot of review, and look at video that compare the Lumia 920 and other android phone. The speed is good, with the pure view technology, it perform quite well and so on. Well, I also want to know if the phone durability is long or not. I used the Nokia X6 for about 2 years plus, and boom, and the phone doesn't work well, the screen/display have problem, is fuzzy that kind, can't see anything other than random colours, when people call me there is a constant beeping sound, don't know why. So probably the phone is already damaged.

So, any suggestion? I live in Malaysia, so the price definately different from other country.
If there is anything that I miss, please tell me, I'll provide more info, thanks

My suggestion is to go over to W8F.. read that whole article/ thread.. 15 pages as of today.
So far on my tablest I'm NOT sold on a lot of those apps.. they crash.. hang things, you have to re-boot to much.. some are filled with bugs/ glitches, they stop and lose your connections..takes forever for APP people to correct these items.
I have ATT as my carrier.. I'm one mile from their, original office, SWB / now a hub for ATT.

So you mean apps keep crashing on a W8 Phone? You think is okay or it is not good?

Hmm, I've read the post, LADYPINKtomato1.
So, so far it the L920 have some software, battery and some other minor issues, and most importantly I've read a lot of review and people saying that the phone is heavy and uncomfortable, but for me, it doesn't matter, as long as the L920 is a good phone. Well, so far the Nokia L920 have release some updates right?

No , I think you mis-understood me.. those Android apps have some problems on my tablet / phones that others are using .
Not the Nokia Lumia 920 phone, I've not yet purchased that phone... my contract is already up on the one I have now, I talked to a live person tonite on ATT website ( chat ) about this phone , I'm going to the store nearby to talk to a live person , hold the phone in my hands first.

No not on the phone we are talking about above.. read my remarks up above , from what I've read, and by people who own the L 920, it seems to be a great phone. I hope I've now cleared up everything .

It appears on the W8F.. from reading all the messages about this phone it's a winner for most. as your comments pointed out a few minor issues.the phone does have a larger screen which I like, that would account for being more weighty. most do have some issues until there are some updates to fix those things.I'm not sure about updates just yet for the phone. go back and re-read if you need to.
I'm not ready to buy just yet.

Yeah, those people saying that the phone is good and they like it.
I like larger screen too, but still, weight is still not a problem for me

I could check on the net too for the updates or change log if there is any to make sure what known issues currently have on the Lumia 920.
I'm ready to buy it once I confirm it is selling in Malaysia, my Nokia X6 already damaged, I can use it hardly.
