I have had the cyan 920 since the past 2 months, one of the first batches probably.
One of my friend got his yellow 920 last week and I was comparing the two and happened to notice that the colors on his screen were a tad bit brighter. For example, I selected the yellow theme on both phones and noticed the yellows on my device were a tad muted, slightly having an orange hue to it almost. The yellows on his screen were true to color. I will try to post pics side by side when I can.
Confirmed with couple other friends, and they all came to the same conclusion. I recall reading something like this before on these forums. Is it a fault on the first batch devices? If it is the case, I am slightly disappointed.
Anyone else notice this?

Just my opinion, but based on all the problems people are having and my own experience with the phone, I think Nokia should be working with carriers to facilitate a full recall on every 920. If they don't have a batch of phones with all the stupid design flaws corrected ready, then allow the user to pick out another phone on Nokia's dime. I've never felt so much buyer's regret with a purchase. There is no reason people should be dealing with random, undiagnosable battery drain, dust in the FFC and every other **** problem this phone has experienced since launch. What hurts the most is the fact that unless I pay cash for another phone, I'm stuck with a defective-by-design P.O.S for a 2yrs. Whats the point in sending the phone back for a problem the next phone will have too, and maybe additional problems right along with it?? I would love to see how many of the 4.4 million they claim to have sold have been returned so far. Microsoft has just as much blame in this as Nokia for shoving a buggy, unfinished OS out the door and not letting devs have a go at the OS until the very minute.
Yes, I am bitter.

My 920...first batch...is amazing and works like a champ. My wife's had minor issues. Nokia addressed her issues quickly.

6th time was the charm for me, works much better than just complaining on a forum. :)

Am I complaining? YES. Do I have any interest in dealing with Nokia again and getting another defective phone? NO. I'll simply get a different phone in a few months, it's just a shame I wasted my time and money. The 920 should be recalled plain and simple, but that will never happen.

Posting problems/complaints about a product is just as valuable as the guy posting praise for the same product. We're all exchanging info here for a reason.

It cost me nothing for Nokia to take care of me and get me a perfect working phone. I've spoken to Matt Rothschild (google him if you don't know who he is) on the phone a couple of times to make sure I was being taken care of. For a company to take this kind of action for a nobody like me, really made me feel like I matter. They earned my loyalty and trust just on what an amazing job they did in making sure I was a satisfied customer. In todays day and age of horrible customer service, the way all of this went down, for me at least, was top notch.

I respect your views on the phone, but there really isn't anything innovative about the 920. We all like it because it looks pretty and WP8 is different from iOS/Android, and that pretty much sums it up. WP8 has some interesting features but most everything it does has been done before by phones mush older that the 920. Wireless charging is neat, but that wasn't a selling point for me, nor did I buy a charging plate.

Nokia, each time, sent the replacement phone out with 2 day shipping and then emailed me a label to ship the defective phone back after I received the replacement.
It never took more than a couple of emails each time to get a replacement, it was actually a very easy process. /shrug
And the low light photos are simply amazing with this phone, as well as the image stabilization when shooting videos, better than most stand alone video cameras. I've gone out and done real world testing with the low light photos vs my HTC titan and it really is an astounding difference.

I'm glad they treated you as they should.
However you're missing the big picture. What will happen down the line when the manufacture determines the product is out of warranty and will no longer support their product? Just like a car I would not want something that has so many issues, the likelihood of it failing down the road and out of warranty is almost 100% IMHO. Sorry, but you'd have to be pretty hardheaded to stay with a make that long.

Very unlikely that all 920 are defective, that doesn't mean a large % aren't in fact defective. Not every Toyota had accelerator issues, but after some pressure they recalled every car with that system. The only reason they did this was because of safety.
