    Here are probably the first pictures of the phone from a consumer.

    Purchase Story:

    I called my Rogers Store in Windsor, Ontario, Canada around 11:30 A.M. EST and they said they just received 2 Lumia 920.

    I got there at 12:00 P.M. and bought the first one. The phone off-contract was $600 + 13% tax = $678.

    I made some of the video reviews right away in my car filming with my Lumia 900.

    I hope what's below helps answering your questions.

    NEW Various pictures taken today inside and outside: http://sdrv.ms/StOVCl



    Quick notes/answers:
    1.No info on whether bluetooth is 4.0 or not. No mention in the manual nor the box.
    2.Nokia Counters app can't be downloaded yet. It says the app needs features the phone doesn't have. (ironic)
    3.Battery gets warmer than the 900's when being charged. It is also more towards the top of the phone.
    4.No Macro Focus mode in the camera and no Contract setting neither. I always had my 900's camera contract at High.
    5.Can't add Whatsapp notification to Lockscreen. Whatsapp developers need to update their app.
    6.Mobile Network setting has add internet apn and mms apn
    7.Backup options: app list+settings, text messages, photos.
    8. Phone can take clear pictures of books/text while my 900 used to struggle getting a clear focus.
    9. Multitasking and resuming apps is definitely very very fast.
    10. So far, WIFI still turns OFF 30 seconds after the phone sleeps.
    11. GPS is lightning fast and the phone has Nokia Drive Beta+ version 2.0.0.1189 and map version is 8.0.47.123
    12.Facebook app notification count on tile and lockscreen are stuck at 3 although I already saw the notifications and they are cleared inside the app (PUSH still a hit/miss with WP)
    13. I would have loved a feature when you can tap on the notification on the lock screen and it would tell you who called you or who the message/email is from. Now you only see the icon with a number but without other info.
    14.First LTE Speed test on Rogers Wireless LTE Network with 2 signal bars: 12.6Mbps download and 6Mbps upload with 161ms latency
    15. Frequency bands listed on the box:WCDMA850/900/1900/2100/1700_2100 LTE700/850/1900/1700_2100 GSMQUAD
    16.Other 920 users are claiming the ones sold by Rogers are FACTORY UNLOCKED. I will verify this as soon as I can get my hands on a non-Rogers micro sim card.

    17.I tried my in-ear headset in both the 900 and the 920 playing the same song and the results are very very similar. The audio was crisp clear and the bass was very rich. (Not an audio expert)
    18. Macro Focus Mode is not an option anymore because of OIS. Instead there is a Focus Assist Light which helps the camera focus.
    19.Phone gets warmer than the Lumia 900 above the camera when in heavy use / long charging time.
    20. I just put a Fido sim card in it and it worked and I was able to make a phone call and even got 3G (since Fido doesn't have LTE yet).
    Therefore, the early batch of Lumia 920s sold by Rogers are FACTORY UNLOCKED!

    21. Battery Life Update: I haven't been tracking numbers, but so far, it seems the 920's battery life is better than the 900.
    22. A proxy can be enabled for an access point guys.

    I am studying Electrical Engineering and taking courses in batteries and learnt that the more often you can charge a battery from a higher level, the better since long/deep charging cycles take a lot of time which produce more heat --> which raises the battery's temperature --> which decreases its health and life cycle.

    So I always plug my device whenever I can until it reaches 100%.

    Overall though, battery life is not issue. I can see the phone easily lasting 1.5 days with moderate use.

    NOTE: I am on LTE at work with 1 to 2 bars only yet battery life is still amazing.

    Please do a detailed review of things that are different than Lumia 900? Also, can you confirm if there are grouped tiles option in that OS? :)

    Things I spotted so far:

    No setting to keep wifi on during sleep.

    There is an option to disable the supersensitive screen.

    Facebook app is 4.0 dated 27/10/2012. It loads way faster than the WP7.5 one.

    The multitasking "resuming" behaviour is still here but much faster than the 900.

    Much, much appreciated. TBH, these look like any average smartphone pics, but we'll have to see more direct comparisons in reviews to really tell what's up.

    Anyway, I'm sure the phone rocks, so continue to enjoy it!

    The camera has something called: Focus Assist Light which turn the flash on so that the camera focuses before shutting off the flash and letting OIS deal with the light and the shake.

    Why not taking a review video? It is more easy for you to share your new toll with us!

    I am uploading quick review videos I captured with my current 900 as I did the reviews in my car after I got the phone.

    I am uploading them on youtube now to show you all.

    Be patient.

    Does it have the new Nokia Music (or is it available in Canada?) with equalizer and such preloaded?
    Is the multitasking better in your opinion?

    And congrats!

    I did not try Nokia Music yet and not sure if Canada has it.

    Multitasking is definitely snappier and apps "resume" much quicker compared to WP7.5

    Great job, boy! Enjoy your new toll. Is is possible for non-Rogers clients to buy off-contract Lumia 920 now in Rogers store?
