    Haven't gotten much time to play with it, but it's nice so far.
    ATT LTE is freaking fast. The weight on the Lumia is really good also. It's nice having a phone you can kill someone with in a pinch. My Nexus 4 seems like a piece of paper in comparison.

    Can't wait to get home to really get a chance to mess with it. I really need to find a double-din navi unit that will work with this phone for the car though.

    ATT just rolled out LTE in our area. Had a buddy pulling over 17 mb/s.

    I looked at the lumia and it felt great. didn't feel too heavy like I was expected. it is a very nice phone

    That's pretty nice. Charlotte market tops out at 30Mbps in good coverage.

    But only like 2Mbps in my office... Grrrrr...

    Nice. Do you prefer the Lumia or the Nexus 4?

    I've had the Nexus 4 for two weeks and Lumia 920 for a month and honestly prefer the Lumia 920. Both are great phones, but I think the consistency in UI of Windows Phone does it for me. Plus, there is a much stronger emphasis on design which I really appreciate.

    Also, any time I see an Android app that doesn't have a Holo UI, my blood pressure rises. Ugh.

    So far the Nexus 4. I am not an active member of social media, and the WP8 OS seems very tied into live tiles with social media as it's backbone.

    BUT - it is definitely a smooth device. I'll answer this question again in a week. :)

    Love both OS's more than iOS, but the apps aren't there on WP8 so far.
