Guys, what can you say about the build quality of the phone. I had seen posts about Lumia 900 screen problems, but frnakly it was poor thought out phone. How was Lumia 800's build quality.
I am planning on buying 920, but Nokia doesn't provide global warranty. And I know it is going to be real expensive in my country(planning to buy it from US). If it has any manufacturing defects I'll be screwed. Though generally Nokia doesn't have this problem, but I had read that even the Lumia 800 had some serious problems.

I own both N9 and Lumia 800, both since release. It's one solid piece especially with that glass that curves/melts to the sides and top, bottom. Other my iPhone 4S i haven't held gadget that feels as solid. N9/800 almost scratch proof thanks to that poly build and color that goes through the material. never used any protection for both of the phones.
Weak point on all of the N9 designs has been the camera strip that gets instant scratches. Something that should be hopefully fixed with the new, black ceramic buttons and camera strip. Another problem i remember back in N9 days was that the curved glass was not properly glued for some, so the sides where not flush with rest of the body. Though haven't really heard about that on Lumia 800 anymore.

I live in India, and if you know, Nokia is pretty big over here. Maybe bigger than anywhere else(after Finland), and I haven't seen such problems with Nokia phones.
But I lost a x10 (SE) to this kind of thing, and being a student, this is a pretty big investment for me. Still if any problems exist, they will come up after the release.

Also, if you buy a 920 from the states, make sure you can unlock it. The 900 was locked to AT&T for the first 6 months with no unlock code available.Check out the great deals on Windows Phone Accessories: http://store.wpcentral.com

PureMotion HD+ on Lumia 920 is LCD.
I have understood that some people in India order around Asia for the high end Nokia's? Might be better option as there wont be shortage of unlocked Lumia's and you get the global version.
