    True, didn't stop it from being the best phone I've ever owned though.

    I've got a Lumia 800 and I don't feel screwed. It's a great phone and frankly if you need to get any more than you originally paid for to make something worthwhile then you're a bit of an idiot.

    I do love Nokia support on WP7 but we were beta testers for MS, they had a plan all along, really annoying when you see it clearly. I'm just waiting for Microsoft to announce our new start screen, available...2013. Don't think they want anyone looking anyway but Windows 8/WP8/Modern UI.

    I guess WP8 will be the ultimate test for Nokia. If they turn it around into profit, it can be seen as the right decision to go with Windows Phone but HTC might steal some thunder with their line up.

    Well in terms of having to upgrade handset in order to get ALL the latest features there is a bit of shafting going on.

    Apple at least allow 2 generations between handsets before they gimp the software updates completely but then again I suppose Lumia only has 1 generation and they are releasing 7.8

    Come and get it cumslingers!

    To be fair, if they just called 7.8 simply 8 and quietly gimped some features for the older handsets, as they are effectively doing, no one would care. Apple do it with every firmware release, for example a 3GS can get ios6 but none of the big name features will come with it.

    Basically, ms's pr department screwed it up royally.

    I am a little worried that the gap between announcing the 820 / 920 and then launch has been so long that all of the positive buzz will have passed. I think Apple have nailed the timing on this - announce 3-4 weeks before people can get their hands on them and then you get the maximum benefit.

    Still, I guess we'll see in a months time or so when the next gen phones are out there.

    When the 920 was announced i was seriously considering a windows phone. The buzz was pretty positive and i liked alot of the features, If it was available within couple weeks chances are i would of bought on impulse.

    However as time went on i started thinking of other options as i was in two minds of making the jump to Windows anyway. Then more details slowly came out and the buzz died down, such as the 184g weight and high end price tag. In the end i just bought a sort of high end android to tide me over, as i previously had a Nexus S which was lovely but really starting to creak and not be so smooth.

    The smoothness is what attracted me to Windows mobile in the first place, but a quad core android can do that too.

    @Sharzam Surely you can hold out for one more month?

    My story is similar to yours though. I decided on finally getting a smartphone after all these years. After considering all the options I found that the only platform that did what I need right out of the box is WindowsPhone. (Widgets on the lock screen)

    And the hottest phone is the Lumia 920. And I have positive experiences of Nokia phones from the past. So OK. I was decided. Then my SonyEricson dumbphone packed it in and I had to get a replacement. A friend of mine had a Experia Play that he got for free that he in turn gave me.

    Now I'm set for another two years I reckon.

    Had the bloody Nokia been out I'd bought one. I stil think it looks like the better option for me.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    My last Nokia was the N97. Kinda makes me want to keep it that way, especially as the 8X is very nice looking (ie, it's a One X running WP8).

    Ehhh, no it's not. They've got different screen sizes, different dimensions, different Soc, GPU and CPU (US versions use the same CPU I think, but the international One X is quadcore), different amount of flash memory.

    The N97 soured me towards Nokia for several years to come. Utterly terrible device.

    Has anyone else tried Photobeamer yet? Really clever little use of tech.

    with the launch of flagship device Nokia Lumia 920 and other smartphones from the same series Nokia has gained a lot back. Windows 8 has also helped Nokia to revive.

    Still a lot need to be done.Let's hope for the best

    My Lumia 925 has just completely frozen! Can't restart using power button, no rumble when I touch it, nothing.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    One of my old lumia's crashed, would not respond at all, left it for an hour or so and it was fine. Ran without issue after that.

    Hmm, it just restarted itself after about 45 minutes of being a brick, not sure if it was anything to do with my desperate holding and jabing of every button or not.

    Seems to be working fine now though.

    Curious (and concerned) as to what caused it, I was playing a game at the time and the device does get pretty hot, overheating maybe? I wouldn't expect a software conflict or anything as everything goes through the MS store.

    There's a reset that runs off four buttons pressed together, you can find it fairly easily via google.

    What's the 925 like anyway? Missus is after a new phone, with a decent camera. And the marketing bollocks suggests this one is pretty good...

    My 720 gets stuck like this once in a while too but only really lasts a few minutes, at most 10. More the (lame) excuse to get a new phone! :) 1020 perhaps?! Eheheh...

    Soft reset on WP8 is hold power+volume down for about ten seconds. The phone will vibrate and then restart.

    Well it should, anyway.

    @Dougs It's got a great camera and it's one of the best Windows Phone 8 handsets, so if you/she likes Windows Phone it's a safe bet. If you have no experience of Windows Phone that's a harder question, but if she's not too fussed about apps and customisation then it should be a good buy.

    She's been using a 3GS for the last few years. She's not that bothered by apps or games beyond the obvious - Facebook, Twitter, browsing, email. That's about it. Haven't really had a good play with a Windows 8 phone yet myself to know the foibles.

    When I switched from Android to Windows I hated it at first. I have slowly come to love it though, it is a sleek and good looking interface albeit quite limited with regards to customisation etc. I think it is geared more towards professionals rather than people who like t oplay wit their phone, the app market is getting better though.

    The phone itself is bloody lovely, excellent build quality, feels and looks solid and the screen is fantatstic. It does get bloody hot though, even things like playing music can raise it to egg frying temps.
