Mine has been perfect, I have a 'first batch' Cyan 920. There are definitely some legitimate issues that have been posted about, but also I think a little bit too much concern about reading into every little glitch. My iphone5 scratches easily and today I had to soft reset it because when I typed to try to unlock it, no letters would come up. The battery life is also erratic, but it really depends on what apps I was using that day too. I've had my iphone4 get so hot that it shut itself down due to thermal issues once, but never again. It's a computer. Certainly don't accept a crap phone, but some people need to accept that no technology is perfect.

No major issues with mine, just a very minor creaking issue when pressing on certain spot... The phone's body is plastic (regardless of fancy names people use for it), so I was kinda expecting that ;-) Otherwise no issues with its display or front camera or battery or random reboots. I'm glad that I decided to get it and not the "mandatory" iPhone 5 (even though I have used all iPhone models since 3G and all of them been flawless), especially after reading the Apple's forums about the multiple battery life issues which Apple can't seem to fix but actually makes it worse (at least for some people) with each new update, not to mention how fragile its new thin aluminum body is (my friend replaced 2 of his iPhone 5's - one he accidentally bent himself, the other was slightly bent right out of the box) ;-)

And at least for me, that's the main reason I've stuck with Nokia through thick and thin, even through subpar OSes. Take that away and I have no reason to stick with Nokia, except maybe for my fierce brand loyalty, but that's just plain blind patronism.

The only problem I got so far was the dreaded battery drain issue, which was completely fixed by a hard reset (should have tried a soft reset first though, lol). I hope it stays that way.
I think a good portion of the issues have to do with the OS. HTC users are reporting issues that sound an awful lot like the problems we're having.

The 920 personally has been a huge disappointment quality wise. I have had multiple BBs, iPhones and one Moto Razr Maxx as far as smartphones. Never returned one with any defects. Never had any issues with software either. I know WP8 is new software and it's MS so I expect bugs, but not like this. From my experience with 920, it doesn't appear to be OS. It seems to be more hardware and Phone side software issues. Nokia had better step it up next time or get out of the smartphone business. And if this is the QC that can be expected, they are already done. I'm no fan boy for any OS or product. I'm just looking for one that works.

I bought a red 920 the day it came out in the U.S. and have one spec of dust under FFC lense. The area above the camera on the back gets warm depending how much I use it and which apps, but so did my iPhone 4. Battery life seems about the same, maybe better than the iPhone, except standby.time seems better on the Nokia. No issues, no need to return. Wish the camera focused better on the first try. Fit and finish: the gap on the bottom of the screen is noticeably bigger than the other sides, which dont have a gap. I wouldn't return the phone over this alone and only $99 anyways (cheaper than the iPhones I've purchasediver the years.

My 920 is issue free as well. I got a black one about 12 days ago from my local AT&T store. No dust issues or gaps, no overheating, amazing battery life (20 hours of heavy use, 1 day 12 hours of moderate use and 3 days+ of light use), no blurry pictures and no overheating. I always charge my Lumia with the wireless chargers that I have at home, the only exception is when I'm driving since I haven't seen qi inductive chargers accessories yet for cars, other than that this phone is amazing and performs better than my friends iPhone 5s

Some Samsung Galaxy S3 Handsets Are Reportedly Bricking Themselves For No Reason | Redmond Pie). so my point is, while it sucks that you havent had the best of luck with your lumia 920, this isnt just a nokia issue. they happen to other manufacturers also. and the amount of people having the issue's are always lower than the people that arent having an issue, alot lower.

My first yellow Lumia 920 and my first Nokia for 15 years. (purchased 26. november 2012)
Haven't had any issues except battery the first week, drained fast, but is now ok.
Just simply love it ;)"Musicians don't retire; they stop when there's no more music in them."

Got a black Lumia 920 from AT&T. Its rock solid. No issues. The fit and finish are top notch and I can't out the phone down. I also own a Droid DNA and its lighter and more sleek in design but it just doesn't compare to the solid industrial feel of the Lumia.

I've had my phone since launch day, and it's never rebooted itself. Or it hasn't to my knowledge. I think I've had to do a soft reset one time. The battery on my phone died, and the phone would not power back up, or boot up, even when it was plugged it. When I would try to turn it on I would just get a big battery icon on the screen. I held down on the volume and the lock button and that resolved the issue.
Aside from battery life in LTE areas, that's really been my only issue. I'm new to smartphones, so I may not be doing as much with my phone as most people.
