Yeah too bad for those on Verizon and Sprint. All I know once its available unlocked online, ill be grabbing one. The hardest decision would be what colour to pick. Leaning towards cyan.

Only downsides to the Lumia 920 is the lack of microSD, the weight and the front camera. Considering that the front camera is still 720p and the weight is something I can live with, there only real downside is the lack of microSD. 32 GB should be enough though.

The Samsung ATIV S has a PenTile (RG-B-GR) Super AMOLED so it'll look bad compared to the IPS (RGB) on the Lumia 920 and if the Galaxy S3 is anything to go buy, the ATIV S display colors will be oversaturated. Having a bad display and being available only in brushed aluminum-grey (AFAIK), kills it for me. The Samsung has the slimness and microSD support that the others lack, but I think the display will be the worst of the three.

The HTC 8X only has 16 GB storage in the biggest version so it's almost an automatic failure. It also has the weakest battery.

In conclusion, HTC 8X and Samsung ATIV S fight each other for the mid-range users. HTC has a slightly smaller device with less space and a weak battery. Samsung OTOH has the biggest screen, the most space and the biggest battery (which doesn't compensate for the screen, because the PenTile display consumes the same or less power than the Super LCD2 display).
Nokia beats both by having the best display (the size of which is right between the Samsung and the HTC), the best camera, a good compromise of storage space and the most exclusive features (Nokia apps, wireless charging and glove support). Really, if Samsung and HTC don't price their devices well below the Lumia 920, they'll have problems competing. A similar thread is running on XDA where 75% of the 200 voters say they prefer the Lumia 920.
