surely I would recommend, but I will also suggest to test the device thoroughly, run it in every aspect and test it as much as you can... I did it and found the freezing/restarting issue and replaced the device.
But second device come up with an issue of poor gorila glasse got scratches so easily, crackling sound and dust under the camera.
However, OS makes Lumia a wonderful device.

I agree that the 920 is the best choice. I use it for a long time and very pleased. Although the battery runs down pretty quickly because I like to talk to much. But if you talk on the phone no more than 3-4 hours a day, the battery will last for a long time. Nice device!

Yes. Unless you wanted an iPhone, or an Android phone, or perhaps a Blackberry. Then I would not recommend it. However, if you are looking for a Windows Phone 8 Phone, it is one of the top three such phones.
The 8X is also a great Windows phone, so frankly you can't really go wrong with either. Don't kid yourself on issues, HTC isn't exactly the king of support either, and their build quality/durability has never been great. You're not going to get BETTER support or quality from either company.

Some things I've found that help with battery life:
1) Turn off tap+send unless you use it. I have a few tags around, but don't use them. They're more for guests that come over and want to connect to my WiFi and the tags make it quick and easy in that they tap and they're on.
2) If you don't use XBox Music cloud, then go into phone settings->applications->music + videos, and turn off the top two options: connect with Xbox Music and Xbox Music cloud collection. Screenshot below:
Also, I've noticed that with most chargers with ANY phone, the GPS/maps apps will drain the battery while charging in the car (happened with all of my previous smartphones). I haven't found a fix, but I like what you're saying about that charger. Can I get a link to it? I kind of want one now.

Battery is pretty hit or miss for a lot of people on this forum. There seem to be a lot of different settings, updates and circumstances that affect this. I personally don't use any phone a whole lot, and with my current settings and usage I get maybe 2 days out of a charge in a non-LTE area and about a day in a LTE area. I got a day - tops - with either my iPhone 4S or Droid 2 Global before LTE was even a thing, so I'm actually quite happy with the battery life in my 920. Unfortunately AT&T blocked the setting that allows you to turn off LTE, or else I'd have it off at all times - I don't need that kind of speed on my phone unless I'm tethering. Fortunately I don't live in a LTE area yet, so that doesn't affect me unless I'm traveling.

Absofrigginlutely not. I owned four 920, all with different defects. I'm using an 8x now and it's far better. I owned a 900 for a short while and that thing was built like a tank, the 920 on the other hand... Never have I ever had a phone with even half of the problems...

Without a doubt I would recommend it. Pre-ordered mine first day and got it 2 days later. Over 2 months and only one soft reset after an update. My battery life is just fine. When I have to work in the data center, my evo would need charging by mid afternoon. Made it all day and still had 90% when I went home. I play quite a bit of wordament and haven't had my phone get hot once.

I recently purchased the Lumia 920 and I can say, after owning an iPhone and a Nexus device, I like the feel and intuitive-nature of the OS. Guess I got sick of a grid full of icons. The WP8 OS feels more alive and I am getting anywhere between 12-14 hours on moderate to heavy use out of the box. I am a heavy texter and I find the keyboard on the device to be very responsive and easy to use. I also appreciate the beautiful screen on the device as well the build quality. The build quality, after coming from the plastic Android world and the "lighter is better" mentality of Apple, I find the heavier Lumia 920 feels much more sturdy and I feel more confident carrying it around. You cannot go wrong with the Lumia 920.

I'm not really sure.
- This issue Touchscreen responsiveness delay?
- The size (wide and thick, if you don't have gorilla hands you might suffer trying to reach the lower back/home/search buttons if you hold it on one hand)
- Vibration sensor feels weird, like cheap plastic toy
- I don't like the double bezel around the glass, besides dirt gets into it.
