I would presume by and large the Lumia 920s are without issues. I'm having some very quirky software bugs on my Nokia though, but they seem to be app/OS related as opposed to hardware related.

I think most assume that you only hear from those that have issues (especially on this forum) and you don't hear from those walking around with perfect Lumia 920's. I'm guessing though that there are people out there who aren't too gadget-centric who have issues with their Lumia 920...only we don't hear from them because they're not the types to go online and onto forums.

Wrooooong. My Lumia 920 has zero issues. On occasion, I install an app that causes battery issues, but it's always the app. Everything about my phone itself is flawless. No creaking at the top, no overheating, no random restarts, no dust behind the front facing camera and everything about the phone works exactly like it should. And I consider myself to be very technically enhanced, so I'm certain there's not some issue that I'm just not aware of.
Thanks for playing though!Don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry.

This is how it really is.
Most if not all issues are software related. Soft daytime photo's, some battery drain issues, software brick, etc....
I have yet to see some real hardware problems like LCD leakage, battery blowing up, etc...
But there are always going to be some hardware problems. From what I can tell, the number of defective Lumia 920 units is very low meaning very good quality control on Nokia's part.
People that have issues usually look to find out by googling and going on a forum like this, so you only really hear about the problems, which is really a tiny portion of Lumia 920 owners. And even then, almost all of them are software related.
I'm going to be a lumia 920 owner soon to try it out, I've had a ton of phones already. The Galaxy Nexus definitely had some real defective quality control issues with the AMOLED display, it was all over XDA forums etc...One X had some defective units, especially with the battery and just overall quality it was pretty big on the XDA forums as well. I'll just say from my readings/research, the Lumia 920 doesn't even compare or make the tiniest of scratches to the issues those two above phones had or most flagships.

Just a very small addition to your theory... All phones are defective in their own ways. We then learn to live with the problems.
I have a Lumia 920 black for about 2 weeks and I have been lucky about getting a Lumia without issues and have mentioned it across the forums but only for the vibration rattle. But then having used smartphones for the last 5 years or so I have realized that majority of us are always smarter than these phones hence we find issues with them(which is good) but then the hard fact is these phones are again built by normal people (not super humans) so we need to accept that there could be issues(I'm not talking of serious issues like a dead on arrival phone). Life is never problem free, so live with it.

My only niggle so far with the phone is that it won't read SMS text messages when I'm playing music or a podcast over Bluetooth. It was a feature I really loved about my old WP7 device that just doesn't work with the 920 in the same car as the DVP.

My Old Lumia 920 used to just shutdown some times, i had to do a soft reset to switch on my phone, surprisingly in the night when i am charging not using it, Drive + Beta was having issues too, just used to get struck, some times doesn't show my location, it used to get warm when i am charging, i did a warranty exchange, i had new lumia 920 for over 3 weeks now & no issues what so ever. unfortunately i did a warranty exchange with in 30 days i still got a refurbished phone. So YES some phones do have quality issues, but if they are working fine they are great phones. Still not thrilled with still photos though cant take sharp photos, great videos for sure.

I just got a Lumia 920 to test out.
Seems problem free so far. WIll make it my daily driver for a bit when the nano-sim adapter delivers.
What exactly is the vibration rattle? I guess I feel like this unit may have it but honestly, just feels like vibration to me.
