Because every day I open wpcentral forums it literally page after page after page of people complaining about wp8 phones yet venturing onto wp7 forums and saying "time to switch". My gf has a 920 and what a piece of ****! It crashes all the time, dirt in the lens cover, scratches on the screen etc.. So in conclusion, tell me (besides lock screen apps), why should we upgrade?

Honestly, I haven't had a single problem with my lumia 920. Every piece of hardware is prone to some damage. Nothing is perfect and you might have gotten a bad unit. My phone has not crashed once since I bought it back in November from Rogers. You are missing out on the new innovation and technology that is in the 920. I don't think I have to list what it is because its pretty obvious. At the end of the day its a personal choice.

I would like screen capture in 7.x and the graphic EQ but otherwise the performance between the 900 and 920 is very marginal at best, so far the only faster loading I have noticed is facebook and fruit ninja, otherwise they are equal inmost respects.

Good for you!! Are you trying to convince us or yourself?
On the other hand I am so glad I moved on to L920 and WP8. The phone is just amazing and the OS improvements are great! It is also faster than any of the WP7 phones I tried. :D

I'm in no hurry to upgrade either, especially since I'm running a fully unlocked ROM (not possible yet on WP8 since nobody's figured out how to bypass UEFI secure boot). I'm hoping that the updates scheduled for later this year will finally give me a compelling reason to upgrade.
Btw, I read that custom ROMs are starting to become a reality for the L900. You might want to check into that once some stable ROMs start appearing. Having a fully unlocked phone helps fill in some of the features that are still missing even from WP8.

By the way, dev unlock is not the same thing as a full unlock. All that a dev unlock really allows you to do is sideload apps. A full unlock is gained by installing a custom ROM and it gives you full root access to the phone, giving you much more power.

I own a L800 and received a L920 from work. I actually prefer the L800. I see no compelling reason to move to WP8 at this time. There are few features WP8 has that WP7 doesn't. The few extra features WP8 does have I find utterly unimportant or half-baked. WP7 actually does a few things better, not to mention WP8's stability problems.
I'd likely feel different if I owned a Gen1 WP7 device, where the performance advantage of WP8 hardware is more pronounced.
As it is now, the main difference is in the promise of WP8... it will improve over time, whereas WP7 will remain pretty much the way it is.
