I do really like how I never 'charge' my phone... I just have 3 batteries. One I keep in my backpack for emergency, one in the phone, and one in the charger in my room.
It is really rather nice not having to attend to my phone more than 2-5 seconds a day. I know plugging it in is easy but sadly I often forget to plug it in and my schedule is very variable so I don't always have those extra hours at home.

I was nervous too.. Until I decided to actually purchase the Best Buy warranty. I can come back to Best Buy in a year and say - I want a new 920 since this battery isn't too hot right now.

The deductibles and price for smartphone warranties simply don't seem worth it to me.
I used to be nervous about not having a removable battery but it's not an issue anymore. The batteries last much longer now, you don't have the expense of buying extras and there are several very good small portable charges that you can use if needed.

$9 a month warranty to replace a battery, that's a bit pricey. Don't batteries usually cost about $20 to $25? You can replace the lumia 920's battery, it just requires some time, patience and small tools.
I'm also very nervous about having a non-removable battery. The Lumia 920 will be my first smartphone to have this issue.
My Samsung Focus (and my wife's) have both lasted us 2 full years now, although recently the battery has been acting odd. We have had to pull the battery out a few times to unfreeze the phone(not a lot, maybe 5 times each in 2 years). That's my main worry with the Lumia 920.
