Good: quality screen and good build win8 clean simple os
Bad: battery life
Comment: Apps are no longer an issue who uses apps 1 week after they've been installed.
Apps are a red herring.
The question is, is the handset good at the basics.
The review appears to say yes.
There's pity isthat the extra weight has not resulted in extra battery life.
The review 5/10 why mention the lack of apps tell us something we don't know.
The handset 8/10. Because of the poor battery life.
Good: Design, Camera, Screen!
Bad: dont know yet
Comment: The best smartphone so far, period!
Bad: camera heavy games
Comment: this phone really bad. I never buy any WP
Good: 8.7 megapixels,Camera sensor (main camera resolution), Nokia PureView Camera
Bad: Hard to grab one at the moment
Comment: Waiting for US release date
Good: Design, Style, Flid software, Camera, NFC, Wireless charging, Navigation, screen, and a lot more
Bad: Phone size is too big and the phone is thinner to hold.
Comment: I would recommend to anyone who want a good smartphone.
Yes the apps are not as many as Android or iOS.
But the ones available do the good pretty good.
Bad: Hard to get hold of at the moment
Comment: The review doesn't seem to have actually bothered to look at the app store and has just sat on a previous judgement? Skype is coming soon?! umm in WP8 its built in, and Skype has been out for ages on WP... There is over 120,000 apps now, yes that's less than Android or iOS, but I don't think I am every going to have more than about 100 apps installed. Top 46 apps from the top 50 apps from the competing platforms are on there now too... Yes it is a bit behind on apps, but say a terrible lack is just stupid.
Good: camera is amazing. screen is amazing. camera exceeds high expectations
Bad: A tough heavy.
Comment: I picked one up launch day. I must say the camera has exceeded the high expectations - for low light at lease. I haven't had the opportunity to test out the optical image stabilization.
The screen is superb. Sharp text, bright colors, deep blacks. It works beautifully with my gloves on. a wonderful touch in the winter.
Comment: dream of a phone
Good: Optical Image Stablization, Super sensitive screen, stunning design, sleek WP8, Navigation prowess
Bad: If anything, a bit late to come the shelves
Comment: I just don't understand why people are making a fuss about 920's weight. Yes, it's 185 grams, about 70 grams heavier than iP5. But you know what, everything happens for a reason, the wireless charging unit and the optical stablization unit in the phone make it a bit heavier. Is 185 grams unacceptable for a phone with these superior capabilities? Come on, dudes.
Good: Screen, camera, Nokia apps, design, wireless charging
Bad: Chunky, heavy
Comment: An amazing phone that shouldn't be reduced to an app lacking app store as cnet is doing here! :-P
