CrashTaylor's review of the Nokia Lumia 920

original version, submitted Jan 17, 2013, 12:49 AM:

Incredible Device

Pros: battery, screen, almost indestructible, xbox live integration (games with achievements), xbox music replaced my zune/ipod, selection of colors, extremely loud with or without headphones
Cons: currently lacking camera options (updates coming), gets warm with heavy use matte however the glossy colors don't seem to get as hot.
Every manufacturer and OS has something incredible to offer. I can't express how much I really like the Android OS and Apple's hardware has always been top notch. This has the best of both worlds. Initially I was set on the Galaxy S3 or the HTC ONE X+. I went into the store to buy one or the other, but was drawn to this device. Went home to do some research on this device and read some reviews. After close consideration I decided on this for many reasons and very satisfied with my final decision. The Lumia 920 is extremely durable, built from poly-carbonate. (The same material used to for shatter proof glass and Astronaut Helmets) So the phone is a little bit heavier that it's competitors. However, it's almost indestructible, I've seen it dropped from 10 feet and hammer a nail in wood WITH THE SCREEN. It's really really durable. In most cases I bought one for me and one for me and my girl friend. She is very rough on phones, leaving them in her purse with keys always scratching the screens or dropping them. That's no longer a concern with the Lumia 920, I see myself saving on an expensive deductibles. As a heavy XBOX360 user the XBOX integration and smart glass was a big plus as well as the XBOX music. I can listen my music and get achievements on XBOX LIVE account. (Not something that will be an option on Android or iOS) Facebook looks better and works better.
- Camera takes amazing pics, that with each new firmware update become increasingly better.
-Screen is very vibrant and responsive.
-Battery is amazing. After conditioning the battery, can easily get a full day with heavy use.
