So if MS got the basics right with a small, lightweight and dedicated app and continues to support the Mac platform I guess I'll be fine. In fact being forced to use iTunes for everything phone-related is a frequent complaint among iPhone users and the WP-approach to this could be sirprisingly refreshing.

Lumia 920 pros
Better display (higher resolution, higher ppi, bigger screen, super sensitive, higher refresh rate, higher brightness)
Better cameras (especially front camera is unmatched)
Nokia Maps (better than Google Maps if you are outside the US - not even mentioning Apple Maps)
iPhone 5 pros
Very thin, very light

Every ip5 I have seen in person has the black anodized antenna band marked up and the white ones are dinged. The 920 will be my first WP and I'm looking forward to ditching apple. From a specs view hands down Nokia wins. After seeing the poor quality control in several iPhone models I have owned I'm hoping for something to impress me again.

For instance I prefer being able to operate my phone with one hand which is why, I'd take a high-end 4 inch or less Lumia any day. Seriously, the iPhone's dimensions are perfect...in my opinion.

Hmm...tough decision. iPhone5 is a fine phone (Maps not withstanding). Lets start with that because obviously on a WP forum, you will get biased views. And if you want to watch movies with your kids, etc...I would think its just easier to stay in the iOS world. But I do believe the hardware and software specs on the 920 are superior. For you, it probably makes sense to go with iPhone 5 for now and consider switching to WP in another year or two. Lets face it, WP right now is still for early adopters....That will change rapidly though in the next year.

The iPhone 5 is not build well, numerous reports of ratling, light bleed, scratches out of the box or easy scratches on the back etc. I know Nokia has a good reputation so i will definitly go for the 920.

I pre-ordered an iphone 5 on verizon (Switched carriers from Sprint in the process).... I have had the 16GB white iPhone 5 for myself a week now to play. I am not all that impressed.
I got a black 16GB for the wife. She's indifferent. Reminds her of the Palm Pre. Matter of fact, her quote was, "Oh, it has screens of icons like my little pre".
I gave up on my HTC Arrive for the carrier switch. SPrint just had gotten bad here. So the carrier switch was the MAIN thing for us. Secondary was devices. Of course, the only choice was iphone or Droid.... with that said....
I miss my WP.
I really think I will be getting a WP8 on Verizon launch and selling off my iphone 5 to pay for it since I'll most likey have to pat full price.

I currently have an iPhone 4S (and have also owned the 4 and 3gs) so it would just be easier for me to get the 5, but nothing about that phone excites me. It just seems "okay" and thats it. The Nokia 920--wow! It looks awesome! I just don't know if I can lug around a phone that big. I had the 900 briefly. Loved the UI but hated the camera so I returned it. I though that phone was a little too big, and I believe the 920 is even bigger. Right? I'll just have to wait and see one when they come out. I think for the most part, unless I stick with the iPhone, I'm going to end up with a bigger phone one way or the other. Thats the trend now so until they start going the other way I'll just have to suck it up. I'm just glad my upgrade isn't until November so I'm not tempted by the iPhone 5 hype when the Lumia 920 is just around the corner. I'm sure there are a ton more of apps available now than when I had the 900 too, so that shouldn't be an issue. I don't care if I have to re-buy apps on a new platform. I just wish the darn thing would come out so I can get my hands on a demo!

So I would say that it is more like a 3.7 inch screen which is ironically the same size as the Lumia 800.
The 820 and 8s are the closest to what you want but they are both low res. Still better than the iphone 5 though with that disgrace of a deformed screen no matter how sharp it is.

Also my friend who brought his 4s in for an issue saw someone go through brand new ones before finding one without a scuff. Anecdotal evidence for sure but enough reports like these to indicate that there is substance to the reports.
