"A Beautiful Phone Inside and Out!"

I work in the connections business, and I unbox, activate, troubleshoot, and accessorize phones from every major carrier that is in my market. In my career, I've never laid hands on a phone that stands apart from the crowd as substantially as the Nokia Lumia 920. The phone is very solid, and just absolutely gorgeous. Text on this incredible screen can be read at a completely perpendicular angle thanks to it's HD+ display. It's actually a phone that is so appealing, and enjoyable to use, that I don't want to customize it with different launchers etc. One thing I didn't think about before, was plugging this phone into your Windows 8 PC syncs the phone up flawlessly. Windows 8 instantly recognizes it as a Windows phone, and integrates with the metro UI. The battery on my phone drained very quickly after getting it, because I never let the screen shut off. I was enjoying just browsing through the menus, using the Xbox Live built in app...There is an endless amount of enjoyment to be had when you pick this phone up, if you're into gorgeous phones that do not lag, stutter, or hiccup at all, and flawless responsiveness.

The few gripes I have with this phone: This is a heavy phone, and because of it's glossy, curved edge body, it's a very slick phone. I'm always nervous holding it in my hand. I'm also concerned it's back is prone to scratches.

I'm also not adjusting well to the way the multitasking works with this phone. Sometimes apps will stay open in the background, sometimes they won't. There's no real task manager that I could find. I know it's a me issue, I just haven't been able to figure it out though.

Lastly, recording video on this phone is a little odd. Possibly due to the OIS feature, I notice uneven zooming. When the phone moves, the frame of the picture appears to tilt along the lateral axis, slightly zooming in at one corner, and zooming out at the other. The lens doesn't appear to be fixed and flat, which is why I think it's an OIS issue. There's some odd warping going on, but not a major problem right now.

Microphone/speaker quality is fantastic, by the way.
