Another review here:
Nokia Lumia 920 review | Expert Reviews
Also with user reviews and laptop mag, and pictures from users here are beginning to scare me off from the Lumia 920. Granted, all the reviews I have seen say it's a stellar phone, except for the camera. However, the camera was THE selling point for me to switch from Android to WP8. It's causing me to rethink the switch, but I'm not entirely sure if the camera could be "fixed" or not.

If you want to talk about a point and shoot L920 is the best hands down your not going to get good lighting everywhere with the L920 sure the I5 daylight shots are better but is it sunny all day its October now longer nights shorter days.
IMO 920 is the way to go just that added low-light photography, OIS and natural photos is a great value.
Also how much is a 920 compared to an iPhone 5? Here in Canada 920 is 99$ for a 32GB its 299$ for a 32GB iPhone 5. So you tell me what's the better value.
Obv I compared the 920 to the i5 but insert any phone and the 920 is still the best point and shoot.

Nokia deserves all the crap coming their way since they hyped the camera so much. They also hyped how rock solid the phone was compared to the cheap plastic crap and breakable glass crap out there, that we would get out of the "beta" stage of mobile computing. Seems their manufacturing process is still in "beta" stage as well.

Nokia Lumia 920
Laptop mag posted their review. Again lack of detail, against the 4S this time, but again, the colors were much better. Suberb camera still according to them.
I find it a bit harsh to say that the iPhone5 is better just because of apps and now because of it having better detail, even though it has horrible purple fringe in that daylight that its touted to be better at. If anything, the 920 is better in low light and color reproduction, where the iphone just has sharper photos. I could argue all I want, but the fact is, the 920 is better in its own way and the iphone still has some advantages. We need to stop holding the 920 as the iphone killer in ever respect, and understand that the 920 is better in most aspects still, just not all aspects.

The complaints I have seen can be changed with a firmware update. It is noise reduction. The color saturation, image stabilization and low light more than make up for this. It isn't supposed to be a DSLR. On the night pics thread someone was posting about the pictures being somewhat grainy. Really? Have they ever taken a picture at night with any phone? I have with a lot of different phones and those pics would not even be possible with any of them.
Some people on here are unbelievable. I just joined this site but there seems to be some nutty posters with very unrealistic expectations. People saying they aren't going to buy the phone because it is going to be an extra week?

its like i have said time and time again thats why we have choices people just need to get what they like. windows phone fans are arguing amongst themselves, when we should all just enjoy the fact that we have choice, good hardware, unique designs, benefits and compromises per manufacturer just enjoy it it....

However, as more reviews start to come out, there are more and more questions being raised about the camera, and it has made me question whether or not to get a Lumia 920. I'm sure I'll finally decide to get one, but it's not a slam dunk as it once was, and my excitement for the phone has been blunted a considerable amount.
