    Is all Windows phone like that, no removable battery?

    It seems to me that all new phone designs are going that way. Less parts and better stationary fixed lead electrical contacts I would imagination is the reason. And after all, we get new ones every two years anyway. A battery nowadays will outlast that.

    Nope, it's just the higher end Windows Phones; like the HTC 8X and Nokia Lumia 920 and I think the Samsung Ativ S. The others, such as the HTC 8S, Nokia Lumia 620, 820, 510, 710, and 610 have removable batteries; along with the HTC Trophy and some other Windows Phone 7 handsets.

    I think it's also partly due to the design, as higher end handsets don't have removable batteries because it's a design "compromise." Just like how the Lumia 920 doesn't have a microSD card, Nokia didn't want to clutter the design anymore.

    Wow no microSD, that is a deal breaker for me unless the phone has 32GB or more of memory. As for the battery, I will sometimes carry a extra battery with me if I'm not going to be around any power for a long time.

    It does, it has 32 gigs of onboard storage.

    There is also your 7 gig SkyDrive...

    And soon, Xbox Music will have music streaming from your SkyDrive...

    32GB wouldn't be bad. I have 25GB on my SkyDrive.

    Oh boy, so I went to a different att store today, they had an iffy selection of Windows Phones, they're still selling the Lumia 900 oddly enough. But they had a dummy model of the Lumia 920, which I question as that's a flagship Windows Phone 8 handset and isn't a functioning model...

    BUT, it was red, and I was able to see what a red one looks like with blue tiles, I'm sold. I was iffy about having a red phone, as that would color clash with the tiles, but it seems like it doesn't really so much. Maybe a bulky red case on my 900 is the reason...

    Speaking of such, azasadny, do you have the red Lumia 920? I forget. Also, how does the polycarbonate shell hold up? Does it scratch easily or are the scratches not too noticeable unless if you really look for them? I just don't like using skins or cases on my Windows Phone, it feels weird, and I like feeling my phone when it's naked....

    Good article here:

    Would Nokia Regain Its Market Share With Lumia 920 And 620 Models ?

    I have the red phone (goes with my MazdaSpeed3!) and I have not noticed any scratches on it. I do not use any protective enclosures, etc... and the phone is very well made and feels great! The polycarbonate case is the best, when Apple minions hold it, the 1st thing they all say is "Wow, this phone feels like it's rock solid". It's a big, heavy phone but I really don't mind at all. I keep it on my right side and it balances out carrying my concealed pistol on my left side (where/when I'm legally able to carry). It's a great phone and I'm very happy with it!
