    Hate to dissapoint you but Nokia admitted in a press release that the Photo's were altered and the Video was just to let you know how it MIGHT look and was not taken on the 920.

    This is true, but I don't even know why as the camera speaks for itself.

    This is their Optical Image Stabilization at work compared to what seems to be the Samsung GSIII.

    And independent testing of night photography. Again, why some were staged is beyond me as the camera again speaks for itself.

    Have you met anyone with an android that ACTUALLY loves their phone?
    Yes.

    I have only spoken to a few about their android phones.

    No one complained - they all said they were happy with it - to them it was pretty much like an iphone - but cheaper.

    (Iphones may be better technically - but many don't need that and won't notice).

    I don't know where you get this idea from about android - I have never heard anything bad about it personally.

    Perhaps if you ask people to fill in a questionnaire, they try and think about any little things to say -that don't really bother them in general - like the oem bloatware, for example.

    Of course, some of them are also very cheap - you can't expect them to be great performers.

    What a bunch of dopes. Got a link? Not questioning you, I just didn't know about this.

    Hi there
    most of this stuff is only of interest to previous Iphone users.

    To me the new iPhone - even the new one doesn't stack up even remotely against Samsung galaxy / htc or whoever.

    It still has all the trappings of a "Dinosaur" phone.

    Let's see, it's got a bigger screen, but is physically smaller and lighter than any previous iPhone. It's faster than any previous iPhone and the A6 chip is 2x as fast as previous versions (which were NEVER considered slow). It has 4G LTE, you can do Facetime over Cellular, Facebook is integrated directly into iOS 6, and it has better battery life than any previous iPhone. The dock connector is now reversible. And it works the same as all previous devices so you don't have anything new to learn.

    I don't see this disappointing too many previous generation iPhone owners.

    Jimbo...what is completely lacking in this device compared to the other devices you mention?

    Not to speak for Jimbo but the iPhone screen is 4", which is smaller than a lot of phones out there now, not even high-end ones. Everything (that I've seen so far) about the iPhone 5 is inconsequential. For Apple people all these new features are great, but none of it is ground-breaking. This is probably the first time in years that company has done nothing but play catch-up to the competition.
