Just wanna quickly tell my totally not enjoyable story of my Lumia 920 and me.
Bought it end of last year. Just a couple of weeks later I had to send it away for reparation. When I got the phone back ~5 days later, there still was the same issue (dust coming in the case / front facing camera). The second time I sent it in, they replaced it and I finally had a phone again another 6 days later.
As unlucky as I am with that Lumia 920 this replacement phone again had an issue. It freezes when in Standby. Ok, 3rd time sending it away, I got it back a couple of days later... What they have done.. Nothing, which official is "Software Update"... Powering it on and not even an hour later it was frozen again (Without SIM and any App or configuration)!!
I am just totally over that Lumia 920...
It was not just sending it in all the time, also the uncountable resets and reconfigurations I had to struggle with... I am just over it and EVEN if the Lumia 920 is the way better phone with superior and innovative technique, I just don't trust them anymore!! It's kinda like in a relationship.. haha
Anyone else here SWITCHING back from Lumia?!
Lets see what the 8X brings me... :)

If you're not interested in thread, then why comment on it?
OP, same boat as you. Got tire of recurring dust issues and moved to the 8x. I miss the screen on the 920 and better battery life, but I have zero build quality issues with the 8x, plus the camera (in daylight) and audio playback are better. I don't think you'll miss the 920.

I know seven people with L920's and none of them are reporting any issues. No battery, freeze or shutdown issues. None of them have had their device replaced. Looking through various forums, it also appears that U.S. customers are experiencing more problems than others.
I wonder if it is Nokia's new factory in south America that is having/causing QA issues?

As my wife's barely 9 month old HTC Titan II sits collecting dust waiting for the 7.8 update that HTC has confirmed is not in their plans to provide, our Lumia 920's sit center stage, just laughing.
I hope HTC dies in a fire...

I don't believe the whole freezing issue has anything to do with the hardware. Case in point, my Lumia 920 I bought back in November was running perfectly fine, no heat, good battery life, no complaints. Second week in January it started to freeze and reboot several times a day. I went ahead and reflashed the firmware as described in the sticky and the phone has been perfect ever since. Anyone experiencing these issues should consider reflashing the firmware.

Good luck I moved to the 920 because my 8X screen developed red dots and then died a horrible death.
Still nice phone if you get a decent one but then so is the 920 so...My WP History: HTC Mozart / Nokia Lumia 800 / HTC Trophy / HTC 8X
Current: Nokia Lumia 920 (Yellow)

I've had very few problems with my 920 (besides dropping it and breaking the screen) but I'm considering trading it for a HTC8X as well. I really enjoy the Nokia extras, but I'm concrerned the size of a phone with a more durable case on it (incipio, speck, otter box, ect) will be to much for a pocket.

ehhh i love my 8x and all but i am only begrudgingly able to use it. the brief time i had my lumia 920 it worked perfectly for me and even if i like my 8x and people always ask me about my phone, i feel like it's a big downgrade.

So.. I finally got the HTC 8X in limelight yellow!! WOOOW that colour is stunning!! The device feels much better in the hand, maybe a little too light, but the shape is just perfect!! Besides that I just love it, I may miss the awesome camera on the L920, but that's basically it!!! Dont miss anything else, I even like some parts way more!! Vibration is nice and not as noisy (I hated that on the L920), front facing camera is way better for skype, the beats audio enhancement rocks and last but not least....
... IT WORKS FROM THE FIRST DAY ON WITH NOT EVEN ONE ISSUE!!!
The L920 got repaired twice and replaced once in just a month!!
WELL DONE HTC and thanks for letting me live my life again, rather than struggling around with nokia every day!!
