Ok I'm due for an upgrade right now. I currently have the old HTC Inspire with gingerbread. I'm really wanting the Lumia 920 bc I'm a little tired of Android and I also see ATT has it for free right now. I know the Lumia is a good phone but for any of you that's had it for a while, have you got tired of it yet? Ppl always talk about how good it is when they first get but how is it once the newness wears off? The reason I was leaning against the SIII is bc I just hate to spend money on a phone that is so similar to what I already have and I can't really afford the HTC One right now. I've got til August to upgrade

I absolutely love my 920 for the things I use it for such as photos, Nokia's apps, others apps I use (could care less about most of them on Android or iOS) and email, browsing. I have never had it crash and the reception is the best I have had on a phone next to my old LG clamshells back in the day.

If you are into customizing to the nth degree, twist and turn and make into a Swiss Army knife go with the SGSIV. Its a great phone, no doubt. If you want an app for just about everything out there, then Android is your OS and the SGSIV is at the top of that list.

You have a tough choice to make. You cant go wrong with either but just based on personal experience with both phones, the 920 wins for my reasons, not the reasons on paper such as specs alone.

You also might want to wait around....there are rumors of some cool phones coming out from Nokia for AT&T. But of course they are just rumors

The people I know who have the 920 (or other WP8 devices) still like them. I'm planning on picking up the 92x once it makes it to Verizon, because I'm sick of dealing with buggy, slow, crashtastic junk that drains batteries like crazy.

I was hoping that the step from Android 2.x (which it looks like you're on) to 4.x would be more significant than it actually was. For all the chatter about making things buttery smooth and awesome, it still feels like the same buggy, choppy, slow junk from the 2.x days. I dare say my phone with 4.1 is actually slower and buggier than my old Incredible. Holo is pretty, but IME few apps actually use it.

If you love your Nokia Lumia and you love Evernote also, I heard the WindowsPhone Evernote app lets you add sound to your notes, example: your voice.

Unsure if this can be done in iOS or Android. If not, then you have a little something special you can brag about

Interesting. My understanding is that going from Android 2.x to 4.x makes the UI smoother, but 4.x does pull down the overall app performance (the OS now does too many things).
