Cptkamal: no it shouldnt, so you should Return it and get a working copy instead.
Edit: my phone works flawlessly. Od love a better UI for IE10, and a better autocorrect since i use two languages interchangeably.
I could also use a psx emulator, but that's about it.
Oh yes, the camera isn't that good preportico, still waiting for the update on my UK bought unbranded.

OverAll I satisfied with my lumia 920, I don't have batter draining issue( I have eight background tasks running) except the Bluetooth connection problem. And I found gaming is more intriguing with load-in super fast and fluid albeit there is still relatively lack for our users compare to other platforms. Anyway, I am still optimistic towards Xbox game. Nokia's hardware and built-in quality are excellent!

As a phone, this beast is awesome. Fantastic camera and first rate build quality. Couple it WP8 though -- the battery bugs, faults in OS design, and the walled garden approach keep me from loving it. Still though if you're a diehard WP fan, this is the best phone out there.

Yes I love everything Nokia has done. I am on the other hand not to thrilled with Microsoft. There are a couple of bugs that should of never made it into a production phone. That and not having the option of a notification center makes me wonder why ol' Billy boy hasn't returned to straighten out Microsoft.

You know these type of conversations is always very subjective. Some people seem to have constant problems with their phones and others have none. I can say I have NO hardware issues at all. Great phone. as for the OS, I like it FAR more than iOS and Android. That is not to say those OS's are not without their good points. But for me, it's all about having a phone that does what I want, works well and above all else NOT being bored. iPhone bores me to death with all the stupid little icons and one phone to choose from. Android is far more interesting but is now getting just a little crazy with the multitude of settings on some of the phones. Also, given the nature of the open system, you are almost constantly having to fine tune things and hunt down apps that just weren't designed right or just chose not to work right on your particular phone. As for the Windows Phone, I find the UI very smooth and refreshing. Classic and simple yet providing useful information in the form of live tiles. The ability to size, add/delete things to the home screen gives you the feeling of making it uniquely yours. Certainly there are aspects of some of the software that I would improve but overall, it satisfies me far more than anything else out there although Blackberry 10 might prove intresting. Still, this phone gives me seemless syncronization with my desktop and allows me to easily share with my husband who up until now always managed to miss or lose track of those things. Now I put them in the Family Room and no problem. Life Is Good.Connie L - Windows Phone 8 always

If you asked me last week, it was a huge UNHAPPY.. I got my replacement 920 however on Friday and it has been pretty much flawless ... Only issue I have is the "other" storage problem and Microsoft's inability to get key apps on the platform (or update key apps already available to make them on par quality wise to iOS and Android).

OK, everyone calm down. If you're coming from another OS, I can almost guarantee you that there is "something" that won't be available on Windows Phone that you really liked on your previous one. Nature of the beast. I was totally prepared for this and you all should have been too. I did however, make sure that those "deal killers" WERE available so there would be no misunderstandings. No reason why any of you didn't do that as well. This is to say nothing of the buyers remorse period you get to change your mind. Certainly there are things I I miss from Android. Can't rally say that about iOS because there is litterally NOTHING I miss about that other than the gazillions of apps and accessories. Big deal. I made sure my Windows Phone could give me those things I absolutely required. Otherwise I would not have gotten it. My banks app was one of those and it is what delayed me from getting one sooner. This isn't rocket science. If you're someone who places a lot of value in having tons of apps, stay with iPhone or Android. If you like insane amounts of customization and phone choices, stay with Android. If your needs are relatively simple at this point but you require a high end smart phone with a smooth, sleek and fast OS, then Windows Phone is for you. I had no misconceptions coming into this. I knew it was a relatively new OS compared to the others and that the app store was pretty limited but I was so intrigued by this very fresh, new kid on the block that so long as I had the handful of apps I needed, I was going all in and would be patient while the OS matured and Microsoft improved upon it. I have not been sorry. I love the phone and the OS.Connie L - Windows Phone 8 always

If I had it to do over again, I would have saved my$500 and waited for the next latest greatest. The amount of time and frustration I have spent to get a descent picture and to make it through a day without recharge wasn't worth it in the end. And if MS doesn't get the lead out with updates my thoughts will not improve. Its better now, but it was three months of aggravation I didn't want to go thru.

Very happy. The phone does everything I need it to do. Good build quality and pretty good camera(post-portico). Only thing I hate is this stupid 6month exclusivity with AT&T. I'm counting the days when I can unlock and drop AT&T. Termination fee and all.

I like the phone in near all respects. However these smaller physical issues have been annoying.
1) The vibration rattle occurs, but I can live with it. I can't live with the feeling of when I turn the phone, its internals sliding around (recent).
2) The top (where the SIM drawer is) is push-able and creaks badly when it does. Makes me think it's just wrapped in plastic and will break.
3) Accellerometor stopped for three days. It fell and it started working again.. But for 3-days I couldn't go Landscape.
4) Screen's surprisingly scratch-able (minor).
5) Audio issues all over. Callers can't always hear me though I'm two inches away from the mouthpiece. There's a consistent issue with that, wonder if it has to do with (1).
I list 'em not to light a fire, but because they are my true issues. I think the phone wanted to prove me wrong when I kept telling myself I can live with all the stories I was hearing by making new ones, lol. The main issue is really the Audio, Accell, and Shaky internals that got me worried/annoyed these days.

I voted Yes, but with minor flaws...but I gotta say I am disappointed. I think I am more disappointed in MS tho as I would think with all the headway they are trying to make with mobile phones they would release something that was just rock solid(or at least a little more so). I am a enthusiast to be sure, and there is zero chance of me going to another OS, but I am bummed. I got a 920, my screen is scratched up and I treat the thing with kid gloves, xbox music is in no way better than the Zune interface/software; this bums me out a lot.
Lots to love too, it almost goes without saying, I just thought they would have had it more polished for such an important release.
